editor’s letter

Without sounding like a whinger, I have to admit putting out a mag this year has been fraught with frustration – think COVID restrictions, WFH complications and production mayhem. Thankfully, a few joyful moments have helped offset the stresses. Take this week, for example, when I got to hang with Hollywood supernova Nicole Kidman (excuse the intense bragging – this isn’t an everyday occurrence, trust me). For two years, I’ve been gently badgering Nicole’s long-time publicist, Wendy Day, for a cover shoot and interview – finally, just days before going to print, our wish was granted. We whipped into gear, gathering every luxury fashion item in Sydney and assembling a kick-ass glam team in record time. We were poised for the usual on-shoot celebrity demands, but they never came. Instead,…

POOL PARTY Stella McCartney, fashion’s First Lady of sustainability, creates swimwear that ticks all our boxes: body-sculpting shapes, a poppy palette and planet-friendly fabrics made from ocean plastic and textile waste. ENDURING STYLE Born in 1985, the cult Pasha de Cartier watch returns with some state-of-the-art updates: two interchangeable straps, sapphire or blue spinel detailing and personalised engraving. BASIC INSTINCT Searching for the perfect slouchy tee or form-fitting tank? Celebrity stylist Chloé Bartoli’s new line, Éterne, plays to our 2020 penchant for dressing down. CHARITY CHIC To mark 20 years of Ralph Lauren’s iconic Pink Pony Campaign, 100 per cent of local proceeds from these tees will go to Cancer Australia.

queen of spades

While 2020 may have seen the sartorial rise of the slipper and sweatpant, one surprising item has emerged as a top-seller: the handbag. Luxury e-tailers cited a soaring demand for designer carry-alls during the depths of lockdown, despite the fact that no one was leaving the house. Perhaps the handbag offered a sense of normality in uncertain times, and provided – quite literally – something to hold onto. Nicola Glass, creative director of Kate Spade New York, has been clutching her Everything Tote, a playful yet practical raffia-jacquard design. “Right now, as I transition from remote working to spending a few days in the office I find myself constantly reaching for this tote,” says Glass. “It’s fun and colourful, but also super lightweight, and it truly does hold everything.” The past six…

double identity

Photographer Pamela Tulizo grew up in Goma, a city in the Democratic Republic of Congo that is widely branded as the rape capital of the world. Part of a polygamous family – she has six siblings and an unknown number of half-brothers and half-sisters – Tulizo grew up with a conflicted view of women, seeing them represented in the media as victims of endemic violence, but knowing them to be resilient and capable warriors. The experience informed her creative work, with her latest project, Double Identity, a series of 13 self-portraits, winning the prestigious Dior Photography & Visual Arts Award for Young Talents. “Goma has a very bad reputation, and women are always at the heart of this violence,” Tulizo explains. “All this is true, of course, but alongside that is life:…
