power sharing

HAVE YOU EVER MET SOMEONE WHO EXUDES POWER? It’s as if you can feel it coming off them in waves. You can see a level of being-in-control, not just in everything they do, but in everything they are – right down to their mannerisms, their gait, sometimes even just through the tilt of their head. That’s the kind of person who changes the energy of whatever room they enter, who causes crowds to crane their necks to get a glimpse of the glow. Celebs, athletes, corporate big shots, and politicians – they all still get to live in that ‘glow’, but they’re no longer the only ones who do. In the last 20 years, power’s become democratised – and its meaning has shifted accordingly. In 2018, power doesn’t have to equal force…

double take

The jacket that was once a favourite in the ’80s is making a serious comeback. Originally worn by Wall Street bankers and ad execs, it has since been picked up by more creative types with serious style like Donald Glover and A$AP Rocky. We’re not talking about your granddad’s old jacket – today’s version is fitted all over, which makes it much more flattering and wearable. And don’t forget: a double-breasted jacket doesn’t always need to be worn as part of a suit. Go on, live large. 1 Suited up There’s just something about a double-breasted suit that says you’ve made it. Take everything you know about a regular single-breasted suit and apply it here. 2 Pared down Don’t overthink it – the blazer will make the statement. Keep everything else understated. A plain…
