editor’s letter

Let’s face it, fashion hasn’t exactly been top of mind lately. For starters, I’m writing this letter in my 2020 uniform of trackies, uggs and trusty accessory (a glass of wine), wrapped in a thick down doona on the coldest day of the year. NSW is blanketed in snow, Victoria’s entering its fourth week of lockdown and Queensland’s just closed its borders, again. We’re barely venturing outside, let alone club-hopping in a pair of killer Louboutins. I’ve even been known to schlepp to my nearby café in a peach chenille dressing gown (#notproud). But before you wag your judgemental finger, I’ve spied you, too, in the local supermarket in your heart-splattered PJs barely disguised by an oversized pu. er jacket. We can all blame COVID for this new-normal casual. But rest…

MODERN LOVE Furla’s autumn/winter campaign depicts a romance set on the streets of Milan and Bologna. Italian actor Greta Ferro stars, but the sleek and chic 1927 Top Handle bag plays a stellar supporting role. Says Ferro, “I share the same values as Furla: quality, creativity and a message of positivity.” HIGH TIDE All glistening gemstones and Mediterranean hues, Tiff any & Co.’s collaboration with Jean Schlumberger is a sparkling reminder to save our seas. CROWNING GLORY An ode to oversized outerwear and undersized accessories, Coach’s autumn collection is a one-way ticket to 1980s New York. The Future Is Female Dior has joined forces with UNESCO to extend its Women@Dior program, providing a 10-month course focusing on equality and leadership for 100 disadvantaged female students across the globe.

interior motives

Fendi has never shied away from a statement. First there was the Baguette – widely dubbed the world’s first It-bag – all fabulous and flashy, tucked under Carrie Bradshaw’s arm. Then there were the Monster Bag charms: kitschy balls of fluff that dangled off A-list purses and backpacks. And in today’s social media age, the maison’s bold logo shopping totes have not only captured hearts but also collected likes. Yet amid the glitz and grandeur, one of the label’s most iconic and enduring creations is the quietest of them all: the Peekaboo. A discreet and classic satchel, it was created in 2008 as an antidote to fleeting trends. Creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi (formerly head of accessories) wanted to design a bag that women could carry every day and pass down…

taking the reins

Riding horseback under oversized sombreros, Mexican cowboys are synonymous with the country and recognised around the world. Yet until recently, their female counterparts were unknown. Sick of being excluded from the charrería, or rodeo, the country’s national sport — Mexican women decided to do something about it, and the escaramuza was born. Proudly showcasing their heritage by wearing a traditional dress inspired by the Adelitas, the female soldiers who fought in the Mexican revolution, the escaramuzas ride sidesaddle and train intensively in order to compete in the choreographed event. “While this is a macho country, men have slowly realised that we have a place in the arena,” says Andrea Becerril, pictured, who was elected Queen of the Charrería in 2019. “It is about having confidence in yourself, but there is…

leap of faith

In a run-down room with damp on the walls, a cluster of Nigerian children launch into pirouettes. No electricity means there is no music, but the students are focused and unfazed. This is Leap of Dance Academy, a ballet school aiming to bring classical dance – and the experience of pride and confidence – to underprivileged children in the sprawling city of Lagos. Self-taught ballet aficionado Daniel Ajala personally funds the academy, giving free lessons, costumes and shoes to the children, most of whom had never heard of ballet. For students like Olamide Olawale, 15, the investment has been life changing, driving her hopes to become a teacher. “My dream is to make children around the world share the same experience,” she says. “I WANT THEM TO BE ABLE TO EXPRESS THEIR FEELINGS…
