editor's letter

A card wishing Marie Claire a happy 30th birthday landed on my desk today, and it’s left the team and me with goosebumps. The cute illustration and sweet ageing joke on the front give no clue as to the note on the inside, which begins: ‘In the summer of ’88, I had a nervous breakdown. It was like the end of my life as I knew it, and the beginning of a much better one. Even though I was so ill, I asked my husband to buy me the first edition of Marie Claire , and I have been buying it ever since.

SHAPE SHIFTERS The new Lee Body Optix denim collection uses laser technology to create optical illusions that flatter your figure - think pockets to round the bottom and strategic seams to lengthen legs. Can we have Kendall’s face, too? GAME-CHANGING Prepare for... ath-denim. That’s right, athleisure is infiltrating jeans. Aussie ‘street-meetssports’ label P.E Nation is going into denim with stonewashed skinny styles with zips and stripes that work perfectly with sports tops. TORTOISE DENIM Pioneering LA sustainable brand Tortoise Denim uses a ‘wiser wash’ process, with recycled water and minus the toxic chemicals to achieve vintage-look denim. OH, GIORGIO Giorgio Armani is launching a small, sophisticated capsule that is to a pair of ripped jeans what dinner at Scott’s is to a slice of Pizza East, if you will. The Luxury Denim Collection features tailored Armani classics…

LUST ITEM We’ve found the perfect summer arm candy, courtesy of Ermanno Scervino. Originally produced to mark the opening of the Italian brand’s boutique on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, the ‘Faubourg’ bag has been updated in gorgeous cream nappa leather. Handle with flair… ECO-FRIENDLY EXTRAS With a modern, minimal aesthetic, Soko is fast becoming one of our favourite jewellery brands. But what really sets it apart from the rest is the use of sustainable materials – reclaimed cow horn, wood and recycled brass – as well as its ethical practices. Each piece is made by artisans in the developing world, aiming to increase their income by five times as they retain up to 35 per cent of the total revenue.
