BILLIE SMOLENAERS “It’s always been a dream of mine to shoot for Vogue ,” says Melbourne-based model Billie ‘Smolsy’ Smolenaers, who travelled to Sydney’s famed Palm Beach for the fashion feature ‘Now wave’, from page 124. Shooting her first-ever story for Vogue for an issue focussed on sustainability, diversity, creativity and innovation was an opportunity Smolenaers says she will never forget. “[It was] so much fun having a shoot with a group of girls, all from different backgrounds and different ethnicities,” she says. “It felt like we were one big family.” WILL DAVIDSON For this issue, celebrated fashion photographer Will Davidson travelled to Western Australia’s beautiful Kimberley region to shoot ‘Life aquatic’ starring Charlee Fraser, from page 104. “The light rises differently in Kuri Bay,” he says of the remote coastal location, where…

vogue editor’s letter

There’s nothing like an anniversary to make you reflect about where you’ve been and where you’re going. Vogue Australia’s recent 60th birthday celebrations did just that. Many of my team had the opportunity to sift through the archives at the New South Wales State Library (which houses a full collection of issues from 1959), and each time they returned to the office wonderstruck by the work of decades past and brimming with ideas about how to push the magazine forward. Which is good timing, because not only are we at the dawn of a new year, but also a new decade. While it has been incredible to reflect upon the amazing and enduring legacy of this brand with our 60th, Vogue Australia has always been about celebrating innovation and driving social…

vive la différence

I MET DAN at university. I was mesmerised by his raw talent as a law student and grew to love his sharp wit and sweet vulnerability. He’d recently come out as a young gay man and seemed unsure of himself. Over that summer I introduced him to my friends, who embraced him. In our little gang, he blossomed into a gorgeous, confident law graduate, later becoming a barrister. After uni I went off to live overseas. When I returned home I was soon back doing karaoke in Dan’s living room. Then one day, after 16 years of friendship, Dan cancelled me. I suppose it was the friendship he cancelled. But it felt so damn personal, so one-sided and so final (he didn’t respond to my initial peace offerings – we never spoke…

fresh start

PURE AND SIMPLE Marlene Dietrich-meets-David Bowie was the point of inspiration from which Ian Griffiths designed the Max Mara resort ’20 collection. A prevalence of white – Griffiths’s shorthand for resort wear – worked to soften structure just enough, readying sharp shapes for more casual settings. INTO THE BLUE Think twice before abandoning suiting for summer. Albus Lumen’s latest iteration, this time in breathable linen, proves that soft tailoring can endure in spite of a seasonal change. For added versatility, consider wearing as separates (slip on shorts instead of trousers; swap out the jacket for a camisole) and keep in the spirit by teaming with flats. CORAL BRIEF Earthy shades like terracotta and ochre pervaded resort collections across the world, and Hermès’s offering was no exception. For resort, the maison expanded its exploration of warm,…

WHEN MIUCCIA PRADA brought white cotton into the fold for resort ’20, she meant it as more than just a polite breather. “The opposite of pretentious,” she said backstage. “It’s simplicity as a protest against too much.” It was yet another Prada-ism that articulates a sentiment she somehow knows we’re all feeling: at the beginning of a year, we want to strip it all away – the distractions and the fripperies – to find cherishable, enduring clothing. Enter the white dress. Prada’s version had the purity of a girlish smock. Dior’s came out in a beguiling set of four column dresses in porcelain crochet. Gabriela Hearst, Erdem and Zimmermann did signature prairie-meets-Victorian with a holiday ease. Each evinced an all-in-one simplicity with the unassuming air of a breezy clear day. This time…

the great revolution

ON THE RUNWAY, all is dark. Phoebe Philo is about to make her debut for Céline. Most guests have their hands in their laps, not on their phones – Instagram is another year off and the iPhone is on iteration three. It’s the moment people will begin talking about Philo, and not stop. After the show, Sasha Pivovarova or Carmen Kass or Natasha Poly will be captured by Scott Schuman and Tommy Ton. They will be wearing distressed, studded Balmain leather jackets as they walk past Julia Sarr-Jamois, who punches something into her Blackberry and greets Hanneli Mustaparta in colour-blocked garb. Marc Jacobs is at Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière is ensconced at Balenciaga and Frida Giannini has five years left at Gucci. Vogue blares the indelicate headline ‘Gender bender’ for…
