editor’s letter

When women come together, magic happens. This well-known adage was proved with punch a year ago this month when the #MeToo movement engulfed the world. It laid bare one clear, powerful message: when women collectively speak out, they can change the world. And if those voices belong to the high-profile – accomplished women who have seemingly perfect lives yet harbour deep secrets – the impact can be seismic. Because of a few brave celebrities, millions of others felt confident to tell their own stories, and let out a united sigh of relief knowing they weren’t alone and shouldn’t feel ashamed, stigmatised or suffer in silence. With this in mind, we decided it was time to smash the stigma surrounding Australia’s most common mental-health issue by asking well-known women to share their…

the lust list

1 PASTEL Rosy nude splashes the season’s most alluring accessories, but the look is far from saccharine. Think ballet slippers adorned with razor-sharp spikes for a gritty-in-pink finish. 2 MONOCHROME “I have said that black has it all. White too,” Coco Chanel once mused. “Their beauty is absolute.” Today the classic combination lives on, best realised with a hint of ritz and glitz reminiscent of the roaring ’20s. STYLE TIP Plain black puts a refined spin on the triangular neckerchief. STYLE TIP Add playful accessories to dial down the drama. 3 BRIGHTS Raid the Pantone colour chart for eye-popping hues, then incorporate ruffles, ribbons and rosettes that sing of balmy summer nights. 4 METALLICS Iridescent silver, top-to-toe sequins and liquid gold – the season’s most dazzling trend ensures you’ll hit all your glamour goals.

about time

Buying a “forever” piece of furniture is not just a financial investment, but a highly personal one, too. It’s a philosophy Welsh designer Bethan Gray brought to the table when asked to collaborate with Rado on its True Thinline collection. The paper-thin ceramic watch was first created in 2011, but presented an opportunity for Gray to fuse furniture and fashion. Her design features a shimmering grey dial that speaks of ancient marquetry, and shiny studs to reference her brass-dotted coffee tables. Limited to just 1001 units, the finished product is “a piece of design history”, says Rado’s CEO Matthias Breschan. For Gray, it represents something more. “I stopped wearing a watch in the advent of smartphones,” she recalls. “But I’d check the time and get distracted by social media and emails. In…

behind the veil

WOMEN LIVING FEARLESSLY AROUND THE GLOBE “I started this photography project thinking I only had my personal story to share,” says Saudi single mother and photographer Tasneem Alsultan, who was married at 17. As an educated woman with the support of progressive and connected parents, Alsultan managed to divorce the father of her two daughters after 10 years of an unhappy marriage. Following the gruelling and lengthy process of divorce, she was driven to document other women’s experiences of love, loss and male privilege. Her project, Saudi Tales of Love, which includes widows as well as happily married and divorced women, seeks to capture the reality of Saudi women living in a country governed by male guardianship laws. “Despite the fact that things are changing, with women able to drive and…
