editor’s letter

I was in the car on the way to work listening to the radio when I heard an interview with a lovely man whose daughter had nominated him for the ‘Fitzy, Wippa & Sia Have Got Your Back’ campaign, which is donating $100,000 to help Australian families who are doing it tough during the coronavirus pandemic. His story was heartbreaking. He had lost his job, his home and his beautiful wife. Sitting next to his daughter he broke into tears when asked when his wife had passed away: “Mother’s Day” was his response. I had to pull the car over. It still makes me teary writing this. The gift significantly altered the immediate future of this kind and humble man and that of his two daughters. He simply could not…

MICAIAH CARTER Photographer Micaiah Carter captured Sia dressed in a series of awe-inspiring designs for the cover of this issue. Taking inspiration from the set’s “ruffles, shapes and flowers”, Carter says his favourite image from the feature, from page 132, was “the one with the rose … because it has an introspection.” Grateful to have had the opportunity to shoot the Australian musician for Vogue , the Brooklyn- and LA-based photographer says that “although I have never been to Australia before, I am honoured to shoot a cover.” Confirming the artist was a pleasure to work with, Carter says the funniest moment from the day was seeing “Sia taking off her wig on the last look.” LULA CUCCHIARA “The inspiration was about being in tune with each other and the world around us,…

garance doré on finding connection

EVERYTHING WAS FALLING apart. My agent was calling me every day. This job in Mexico is cancelled and this other one is going to be postponed. This client called and their budget is frozen for now. In the beginning, I thought things were merely being delayed. A new virus had hit the planet and no one knew how to react yet. “Let’s take a break and touch base in a couple of weeks!” we all said. Do you remember? Curious timing for me, though. I am a writer, a photographer and an illustrator. I was one of the first fashion bloggers. A weird job, one I sort of made up as I went. I was successful, so it was intense, exhilarating – and exhausting. I had gone full speed for about a…

CLASH FORWARD Nicolas Ghesquière’s anachronistic visions of future-meets-the-past breathed freshness into his newest collection for Louis Vuitton, inspired in part by motocross. Here, a look that is a bit bourgeois and a bit boyish drives home one of this season’s directives: dress up with a license to mix. PATTERN PLAY Having a female designer at the helm of a house like Givenchy means each of Clare Waight Keller’s collections were designed with an inherent need, and real know-how, to serve the modern woman. The result? A dress that deftly balances elegance with ease of wear, updating a fail-safe silhouette with happy colour-blocked graphics. SHORT AND SWEET Miuccia Prada has been steadily and consciously upending expectations. So, instead of revisiting tired tropes of femininity in her collections for Miu Miu, she rewrote them: in floor-length leather…

There are no cowboy connotations in this season’s take on fringing. Butter-soft leather and liquid fabrics give an elegant upgrade to the sweeping train, while trailing strands add movement and the illusion of height and drama.

1. “Ren Hang’s body of work pierced the veil of taboos, oppression and sexuality in China, a side we often see hidden and suppressed. His art inspires me to find courage in breaking free out of my own societal pressures and cultural instincts.” 2. “Christian Louboutin The Exhibition(ist) is an index of inspiration … It’s given me great insight into the history of art, its movements and the creatives throughout time.” 3. “Nendo is a Tokyo design studio that dabbles in furniture, graphics, installations, products and interiors that craft playfulness and cleverness while still upholding the minimalist ‘less is more’ concept.” 4. “I am in love with Louboutin’s Mondiri block heel.” 5. “Half of my blood flows through Taiwan and so it is a curious place for me. The cities and villages capture the…
