onwards & upwards

Welcome to your first Bazaar of a brand new decade! As a congenital optimist, I am always excited by the beginning of the year, full as it is of possibility and potential. I love writing on the first, clean page of a diary, and drawing up lists of aims and aspirations for the months ahead. So I am feeling very inspired by this issue, in which we have asked a series of brilliant writers, thinkers, creators and even an astronaut to give us their take on what is to come. It is impossible to read any of their fascinating contributions without feeling uplifted, but I found Jeanette Winterson’s call to arms particularly rousing. ‘The future isn’t fixed,’ she says. ‘We can steer it towards a better outcome.’ I couldn’t agree more…

CLEMENCY BURTON-HILL Page 76 The writer, broadcaster and violinist read English at Cambridge and went on to become a distinctive voice on BBC Radio 3. She has since published a book, Year of Wonder: Classical Music for Every Day, and now hosts the podcasts The Open Ears Project and Classical Fix. On our Talking Points pages, she writes about the cellist Jacqueline du Pré. In 10 years’ time, I’d like to be… ‘living in a greener, more merciful world than this one. Preferably under President Michelle Obama.’ I’m looking forward to the day that… ‘Britain rejoins the European Union.’ A changemaker who inspires you ‘Maria Popova, the superwoman behind Brainpickings.org, an “inventory of the meaningful life”.’ A gadget you’d love to invent ‘A piece of technology that transmits a love-pulse to someone, wherever they are, to…

10 things we love

1 OUT OF THE WOODS If sustainability is the season’s most compelling fashion story, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s beautiful collection for Dior showed the way: cherished, hand-crafted, emotional. These are clothes to love for ever – what could be a better message? 2 CLUB TROPICANA The usual romp through florals gets a bit more interesting for S/S 20: gone are the ditsy prints in favour of lush jungle foliage, splashy tropical themes and a vibrant clash and mismatch. Add a parrot-embellished bag by Dolce & Gabbana for a witty take on the trend. 3 get shortly If rising hemlines traditionally tell us something about the economic and political climate, what to take from the abundance of shorts on the runways? From Chanel hotpants to Max Mara tailoring, every iteration is covered, including the denim cut-off, which…

More than 20 years after her death, Diana Spencer remains as powerful a style icon as ever. When designing her S/S 20 collection, Tory Burch took her cue from the Princess, bringing together English garden florals, a restrained silhouette and an Eighties sensibility. ‘I have been fascinated with Diana since I was young,’ Burch says. ‘I loved her fearlessness, her intelligence and, most of all, her humanity.’ When Natalia Vodianova opened the show in a delicate white gown constructed from embroidered handkerchiefs, paired with trainers, Burch was making a connection between the charitable natures of her inspiration and the philanthropist model. ‘Diana left a legacy of giving back that embodies what I admire most, one that has been instilled in our company since the very beginning.’…

my life, my style

I don’t really mind not looking like anyone else,’ says JJ Martin, the Los Angeles-born, Milan-based founder of the fashion and lifestyle label La Double J. ‘I’ve never had that problem. I actually kind of like it.’ Known for her exuberantly printed clothing, today Martin is staying true to form, dressed head-to-toe in eye-popping pattern, as she shows me around her sunlit apartment with her adorable pug, Pepper, trotting at her heels. ‘When I moved to Milan, I brought my suitcase full of vintage clothes – I remember walking around the city streets with people staring at me, thinking, “What are you wearing?” Now everybody wants to join in!’ Christened Jennifer Jane, JJ gained her nickname when she started high school, to differentiate her from the three other Jennifers in her…
