editor’s letter

Since we published our sustainability special in our October issue last year, I’ve definitely noticed a change in the conversation around plastics and climate change (while I’d love Marie Claire to take the credit, I think Sir David Attenborough might have had more to do with it). The volume has most definitely been turned up, and I’m getting the sense that the nation is listening, with many of us ‘starting somewhere’, as we urged with our campaign.

Picture the scene: you’ve had a normal upbringing in rural Hertfordshire and then gone on to a quietly successful career deliberating over lapel inches as a menswear designer. And then... you get the call for the most flamboyant, female-focused, curve-clinging job in fashion: creative director of Roberto Cavalli. Oh, and you’ve got just eight weeks to design your first collection. The shock to Paul Surridge’s system must have been major, but luckily, he’s a cool, calm type with plenty of Italian fashion experience, thanks to the years he’s put in on the menswear front (which is mainly produced in Italy) for labels including Calvin Klein, Burberry and Jil Sander. His Cavalli debut, for SS18, was a total 180 for a label known for the kind of gazillionaire glamour mainly seen under…
