editor’s letter

“EVERY WOMAN’S SUCCESS should BE an INSPIRATION TO ANOTHER” – Serena Williams Sometimes a particular film or television programme comes along that encapsulates the mood of that time so perfectly, it resonates far beyond simple entertainment. Killing Eve was exactly that. Given that it was penned by the brilliant Phoebe Waller-Bridge and starred the inspirational Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, it’s fair to say it had ‘hit show’ written all over it from the get-go. But there was something extra-special about Jodie’s portrayal of a contract killer, which catapulted her from rising star to one of the most talked-about young actors working today. “THE FRIENDSHIPS I’VE FORMED with WOMEN HAVE BEEN KEY to MY HAPPINESS” What made Killing Eve resonate was the friendship the three women forged while making the show – so…

guest list

THE IMAGE MAKER VICTOR DEMARCHELIER Photographer Victor Demarchelier has been surrounded by the fashion industry from a very young age; he spent much of his childhood on set with his father, Patrick.

Born and raised in New York, Victor lives with his wife, Heloise, and daughter, Alice, in Tribeca. He has photographed the likes of Jodie Foster, Dakota Fanning and Lana Del Rey, yet ‘I enjoy each project just as much’.

“I AM A FASHION PERSON , AND FASHION IS NOT ONLY ABOUT CLOTHES - IT’S ABOUT ALL KINDS OF CHANGE”KARLISM As the creative director of Chanel since 1983 and Fendi since 1965, the German-born, Paris-based, ivory-ponytailed titan Karl Lagerfeld was one of the couture world’s last great living masters. A black leather-clad link to fashion’s storied history — and the creator of the fast-paced, ever-changing fashion system that would alter the course of the industry’s future. Fashion has long thrived on disruption. Like the to-the-calendar rotation of trends, the coming and going of designers, supermodels, looks, front-row personalities and talking points (moods and moments, if you will) are the gilded gears and sprockets that keep the business moving. The only constant is change and all that. And the constant change keeps things interesting,…
