If I’m honest, I always find this, the September issue, problematic, because it straddles two seasons. In the strange world of magazines, the month on the cover doesn’t always correlate with the month we’re currently in, so even though the September issues traditionally hail all things autumn, you’re most likely to be reading them in the depths of summer. For this reason – and because I get great pleasure from throwing out the rulebook, and great misery from looking at coats while on a sunlounger – we have continued the sunshine vibes in this issue. We’re still giving you a taster of the new things to come, such as our highlights from the A/W fashion shows on page 12, but this runs alongside our best holiday beauty buys on page…

A LONG WAY TO GO In our July issue, we investigated the continued prevalence of the ‘pink tax’, the phenomenon that everyday life costs more for women. Lisa Best got in touch with us to share her thoughts. ‘I found your piece on the pink tax illuminating,’ she wrote. ‘As a lesbian, I’m fully aware of the pink pound and how it has been manipulated and exploited.

JODIE DUNWORTH FASHION ASSISTANT Favourite show: Chloé Speaking to my heartland style of super-soft rollnecks, column-knit dresses and aviator jackets, the Chloé collection also encourages me to push my style boundaries by including leather for clashing texture, and olive and burgundy to shake up my neutral colour palette. I am adding in colour but still sticking to earthy hues that don’t feel too far out of my comfort zone MEDINA AZALDIN BEAUTY ASSISTANT Favourite Show: Christian Dior I gravitate towards pieces with a certain romance; sparkles that catch the light, detailed textures that implore you to look closer or silhouettes that flatter. Dior is always utterly dreamy, but this season’s darker take on fairy-tale dressing, with its austere colour palette (deep reds, navy and black) and frothy, luxe textures and feminine lines, really does…
