editor’s letter

WELCOME TO MY FIRST ISSUE as editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar. This isn’t my first issue of Bazaar, though. I was a fashion editor at the magazine 20 years ago. My job was to edit and produce the shopping section of the magazine, and the section always opened with a model. Our bookings editor at the time told me that there was a new model who was “going to be a star.” A few days later, I styled Liya Kebede for the April 2001 issue, marking the first time she appeared in Bazaar, and the start of our friendship. In the years since, she has walked for every major designer and covered every major fashion magazine except this one. I’m thrilled that my first issue as editor in chief is also…

COLLIER SCHORR PHOTOGRAPHER “A Study in Contrasts,” page 86 “Writing about the hardcore scene for The Village Voice in college. It was the first creative work I got paid for and the first time someone in a position of power told me that someone my age had a worthy opinion.” GERARD SANTOS SET DESIGNER “A Study in Contrasts,” page 86 “During quarantine, I walked across the Williamsburg Bridge for the very first time. Despite all that the city’s been through these last few months, I took in the beautiful view and thought, ‘I still love New York.’” ERICA GONZALES CULTURE & CONTENT STRATEGY EDITOR, Bazaar.com “My first time voting, I trekked from Manhattan to my polling place in New Jersey. On the way back, my bus got stuck in traffic, hit another bus, the drivers got into a fight, and…

“During this period, music has been very helpful and soothing—I’ve revisited a lot of music from when I was younger, from a lot of different worlds,” says Dev Hynes. When creating his playlist, he referenced a mix of older and newer releases, some that represent literal firsts and others that embody freshness or first-time emotions. “I picked ‘Behold That Star,’ by Marian Anderson, because she was the first Black opera singer to solo at the Met,” he explains. “‘Blue Sky and Yellow Sunflower,’ by Susumu Yokota, feels like spring, or a new day. And ‘It Must Be Love,’ by Labi Siffre, feels like first love.” Listen to Dev’s full playlist exclusively on Apple Music.…

chanel 2.55 bag

EVERY DECISION we make with what we wear, whether subconscious or intentional, is a method of communicating. It’s primordial. When it comes to buying anything, I try to think of it as a long-term attachment. If it’s not going to last, or if it’s going to fall apart or date too quickly, I try to avoid it. Obviously this doesn’t apply to every last purchase (buying a pair of Converse sneakers doesn’t carry the same weight as a Chanel bag), but I don’t buy for the short term. I inherited my Chanel 2.55 bag from my mother, who herself had been gifted it. Whenever I wear it I’m wearing her history. I know it sounds like an inflated idea, but our attachments to objects and the paths they’ve all taken are…
