seeking solace

‘Still, what I want in my lifeis to be willingto be dazzled—to cast aside the weight of factsand maybe evento float a littleabove this difficult world.’ The poetry of Mary Oliver was once described as ‘an excellent antidote for the excesses of civilisation’. Certainly, I have found it a source of philosophical consolation when dealing with the unprecedented challenges caused by the current health crisis, in which previous certainties suddenly shift. As I write, we don’t know what its full impact will be; and faced with such unpredictable disruption, one can only obey Oliver’s dictum, and try to rise above it all in search of eternal truths and timeless joys. One such, for me, is our kaleidoscopic floral fashion story ‘Marigold rush’, shot for us by the extraordinarily talented artist and photographer…

CHANEL… Virginie Viard looked back to Coco Chanel’s childhood in the convent at Aubazine for her show, which was set in the kitchen garden of a cloister. The black and white uniform that dominated Chanel’s youth was transformed into clothes with a pleasing austerity – something of a signature for the designer. This was a beautiful collection, at once respectful and resolutely modern. DIOR… A collaboration with the artist Judy Chicago, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior collection was influenced by the idea of woman as goddess – gilded and draped in dresses whose apparent simplicity belied their extraordinary craft. The exceptional finale gown, with sequins and a tulle cape, featured a moon on its bodice – the ancient symbol of female fecundity. GIVENCHY… Clare Waight Keller took inspiration from the gardens at Sissinghurst for her extravagant…

my life, my style

‘I hate the idea of diamonds languishing unloved in a safe,’ says the New Zealand-born jewellery designer Jessica McCormack when we meet at her home in Kensal Rise. ‘I always ask people, “How can you keep them locked away like little prisoners?”’ Beloved for her ability to put a more wearable slant on forgotten pieces, as well as for her own antique-inspired creations that have a modern twist, McCormack has redefined how women think about fine jewellery. ‘I make designs that fit a modern wardrobe and can be worn on the school run, at a board meeting or to a black-tie dinner,’ she says. ‘You want them to live a life with you.’ The daughter of an antiques dealer and auctioneer, McCormack grew up in Christchurch, surrounded by weird and wonderful objets…
