editor’s letter

As a child of Irish immigrants, growing up in London during the peak of the IRA bombing campaigns, being white with no discernible accent or other ethnic signifiers meant I was never vilified for the actions of those terrorists, other than the odd mad rantings of an elderly neighbour. Fast-forward to the present day, and a young woman wearing a hijab walking on Westminster Bridge in the moments after the 22 March terror attack makes headlines around the world – her image going viral, along with the insinuation that she was indifferent to what had happened. I can’t imagine what it’s like to experience such levels of hate and xenophobia. In The Humiliation Game (page 107), Lucy Pavia examines how digital technology is aiding and abetting the shaming of people…

9 to 5 my style

IT’S IMPORTANT FOR MY WARDROBE TO MAKE ME FEEL CONFIDENT, COMFORTABLE AND POWERFUL. I have to look smart every day because I’m seeing clients, but I’m also always on the move, so I like to be comfy. As I often need my day outfit to work for evening too, I keep heels and big jewellery in my car, then I can spruce up if necessary. MY TOP SHOPPING SECRETS ARE… Firstly, I hardly ever try on clothes in a changing room – I prefer to take them home and do it in the quiet of my bedroom with the rest of my wardrobe, so that I know what they’ll work with.

the art of accessories

LEONARDO DA VINCI Mona Lisa (c. 1503-1506); The Louvre, Paris Born near Florence, Italy, in 1452, Leonardo Da Vinci was a master of art, astronomy, music, botany, chemistry, mathematics – the list goes on. He began the Mona Lisa (a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a Florentine silk merchant) in 1503. Painted on to poplar wood, it pioneered the sfumato style with no visible brushstrokes and would become the most famous painting in the world. When Gaston-Louis Vuitton invited artists to display their work in the windows of his family’s Paris store in the 20s, he probably didn’t imagine that, a century on, the luxury powerhouse would still be putting contemporary art at the heart of its designs. The latest artist to join a long and storied list of collaborators is Jeff…
