elle editor’s letter

Music has always been an important part of my life. Ever since my first concert – when I went to see Adam and the Ants aged 15, wearing a velvet 18th-century-style men’s jacket ‘borrowed’ from my school’s costume department, accessorised with white face paint and plaited hair in homage to the band’s style – it has carried me through life’s milestones. From singing along to Wham! in my bedroom as a teenager, to Prince’s Parade album consoling me after my first proper heartbreak at college, as well as countless live gigs, including David Bowie in the mid Eighties and Patti Smith some time in the Nineties (unforgettable), my most vivid memories have a soundtrack. I deliriously sang Crazy by Patsy Cline when giving birth to my daughter. Marrying my now-husband…

fashion says relax

‘Suits… they’re not becoming for any woman!’ That was the reaction of a critic writing for Movie Classic magazine in the Thirties in response to the women of Hollywood wearing slacks on-screen. History had other ideas, however – Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo and Katharine Hepburn are still part of the collective conscious today. Thankfully, almost a century later, women wearing suits has gone from controversial to commonplace. We’ve seen Bianca Jagger swap bridal wear for a white tux, Saint Laurent’s iconic ‘Le Smoking’ (and a million knock-offs), Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit army and Lady Gaga advocating that the suit belongs to all genders. But only recently has the suit shaken off its ‘borrowed from the boys’ shtick. There was a new sense of freedom for SS19, as suiting incorporated more skirt lengths, shorts…
