editor’s letter

As a child of the Thatcher era, I came of age at a time when protest marches (Section 28 and the ambulance strike) and benefit gigs (for the miners or to ‘Rock Against Racism’) allowed my social life and political awakening to conveniently overlap (there would always be a glass of cider involved and a cute guy from the Socialist Workers Party to chat up). In subsequent years, as career and children arrived, my political ardour softened, and so I thought my marching days were over. But last month I joined my Marie Claire colleagues, donning hand-painted T-shirts and hoisting placards to march with women the world over to protest against the threats to our rights in this new global political landscape. Of the many freedoms and values under threat, we’ve…

the art of layering

THE DRESS & TROUSER COMBO Go all out and play with different colours and textures. One style rule: dresses have to be past the knees or just above the ankles. BAGS, BAGS, BAGS If you can’t fit all your daily essentials into your mini bag, why stop at one? The more the merrier, we say. UNDERWEAR: THE NEW OUTERWEAR From corsets to bandeaus and bralets, smalls are making a big statement. Wear them over anything and everything – just make sure they’re on show. SHEER INSPIRATION A see-through dress is a key piece this spring – layer over skirts, jeans or another frock. Add fashion kudos to a suit by wearing it over sheer trousers, as seen at Céline. STACK ’EM UP When it comes to layering your necklaces, think eclectic. Mix chunky gems and delicate pieces for an…

nicolas ghesquiere for louis vuitton

When you have a fashion house built on bags, how do you make sure the clothes get their share of the spotlight? Louis Vuitton made his first trunk in 1858, but it was only in 1998 that the house branched into ready-to-wear, and the Vuitton woman’s wardrobe is still evolving. In his three years as artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquière has turned the woman into an entirely new breed – with fitted silhouettes, tractor-soled boots and sci-fi references, she’s more of a warrior girl beamed in from a retro-tinged fashion planet far away. And her clothes are certainly giving her cult Petite Malle bag a run for its money when it comes to attention. The chisel-jawed Ghesquière, 45, developed his signature combination of technology and couture techniques in his previous role…

the bag drop

MICRO Stylish? Yes. Practical? Not so much. In order to embrace this trend, bags must be so tiny that even your iPhone will be snug, so these really are only for the most dedicated fashion followers. WRISTLETS The quirkier bag shape of SS17, the wristlet wins fashion points for style and originality. Pick a bright colour to lift your look or a neutral shade for understated chic. MAXI POWER Bigger is better was the bag motto at several key shows. The maxi is ultra cool and roomy enough to fit everything you could possibly need and more. What’s not to love? BUCKET LIST The bucket bag is back on the fashion map, and we can see why. Sleek and spacious, it’s ideal for both work and play. This is one investment you won’t regret.
