This month we’re celebrating the amazing British high street. Yes, online fashion is thriving, but we all still love the experience of going into a store and walking out with a new purse-friendly purchase that makes us feel fabulous. HFM’s 30-page special is the ultimate edit for SS19, plus the finest high-street wedding looks for brides keeping it real. Also keeping it very real is our beautiful cover star Malaika Firth, who talks candidly about her struggle with mental health. Malaika’s modelling career went stellar when she was catapulted to fame with high-profile campaigns, before suffering from anxiety and then taking time out. Now she’s back and determined to highlight the emotional problems young models face – read her inspiring story.…

the agenda

THE PRINT REPORT ‘BILLOWING BELL SLEEVES AND DELICATE RUFFLES ADD A SWEET SENSIBILITY TO DELPOZO’S CANDY STRIPE CONFECTIONS’ Elaborate swirls, painterly motifs, bold stripes and striking florals – the SS19 catwalks were a rich collage of print and pattern. SPRING STRIPES While stripes, in all of their wildly different iterations are nothing new, the cool ways in which we’ll be wearing them this season are. Take your cue from Delpozo, Halpern and Dries Van Noten and opt for vibrant candy colours – they’ll add verve to casual ensembles and quiet charm to sophisticated renderings. STYLE TIP Chunkier stripes work best in two-tone colourways. Pair with a contrasting lip and everyday sandals for the ultimate high-low look. BOLD FLORALS Every type of floral appeared on the runway this season, but it’s the sizeable, striking Miu Miu kind we’re most…

the making of malaika

There’s an unmistakable ethereal quality to Malaika Firth as she glides on to the set of her HFM cover shoot. Sans make-up she’s dressed comfortably in cashmere loungewear, hair in a top-knot and she’s all smiles. The model, who broke into the fashion industry in 2011 aged 17, is a heady mix of British, Swiss, Kenyan and Seychellois. “My family is very diverse, it's such a huge story,” she begins in her butter-soft tones – an affable product of her native Swahili tongue. Malaika (pronounced Mal-i-ka) tells us that, contrary to belief, it was actually she who persuaded her mum to let her become a model, after watching fly-on-the-wall documentary The Model Agency in 2011, and not the other way around. “We watched the show as a family and my mum always…

quickfire questions

Who were your fashion icons growing up? “I love J-Lo. Honestly. My friends know this as well, the baby hair [she says touching her temples] and I would sing J-Lo to the mirror.” What are your favourite high street stores? “Topshop, Zara, New Look – these are the ones I go into to buy clothes.” Where are you based? “I live in a flat with my parents in London but I also have an apartment in Brooklyn; I haven’t been there in a few months. It’s a really beautiful apartment, when I’m in New York I feel like I’m living a different lifestyle.” Favourite holiday destination? “The Maldives. I used to say ‘Kenya, Kenya, Kenya’ because I was born there, but now I’ve changed the whole thing. That’s where I’d love my honeymoon to be one day,…
