editor’s letter

THANKS FOR HELPING: When we saw the adorable face of Tink the koala joey – our favourite new cover girl – we knew we needed to do something to shore up her future. By purchasing this magazine you’ve helped the following charities who assist in the recovery and conservation of our native wildlife: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Hospital (and home to Tink!) in Qld, WIRES (Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service) in NSW: Wildlife Victoria; and Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park Fund in SA. There wasn’t a single day of the bushfire crisis that I didn’t cry,’’ admits Lynleigh Greig, volunteer wildlife first responder and co-founder of Sydney Wildlife Rescue. And she wasn’t the only person brought to tears during this catastrophic summer. There have been tears shed by battle-weary firies who lost mates…

the lust list

THE TREND TWIN SET Worn by international style icons from Jackie Kennedy to Brigitte Bardot, the Chanel suit has long been a stamp of sophistication and French-girl dressing. Mimic the look today with candy-coloured tweed and flouncy peplums. THE TREND READY TO WEAR Sure, fashion is about fantasy, but more and more it’s becoming about functionality. The season’s biggest trend is wearability: pieces that are casual, cool and comfortable, such as slouchy pants and low heels – as seen at Fendi. Just add a bold accessory. THE TREND NEUTRALS & NEON The days of dressing in head-to-toe cream and camel are over. Hugo Boss’ latest collection is infused with playful pops of neon, and a host of other labels have joined the fray with elegant extras in highlighter hues. STYLE TIP Let classic cuts and colours form the foundation of…

keeping his cool

Having recruited Jennifer Lopez, Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan and Selena Gomez to Team Coach as brand ambassadors, it’s safe to say that creative director Stuart Vevers understands cool. While J.Lo can break the internet just by leaving the house and Jordan is box-office catnip, Vevers’ personal brand of cool has stealthily surfaced in the signature touches of Americana he sends down the runway every season. “I’m most proud of introducing ready-to-wear and a fashion language to Coach,” Vevers says. “We’ve been able to establish strong references with our shearling jackets, leather pieces and prairie dresses. That didn’t exist before.” When Vevers arrived at Coach in 2013, the label was best known for its hobo handbags and accessories designed by the legendary Bonnie Cashin in the ’60s. With a background creating accessories at…

TO THE LETTER Get personal with Christian Dior – the luxury brand invites customers to have their name embroidered on its iconic Book Tote. The service will be available in pop-ups around the world, including at Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre from February 10 to March 8. ART CLASS Crochet was rampant on the runway this season, signifying the return of “slow”, handcrafted pieces, plus an ongoing affinity for all things ’70s inspired. FREE SPIRIT Taking cues from the surf culture of the Swedish island of Gotland, H&M Studio’s S/S 2020 collection is equal parts carefree and colourful. LUXE LIVING High fashion meets high culture in Common Hours’ lush, limited-edition robes, made from French silk and embroidered with motifs from music, literature and art. FROM THE HEART Founded by Kiwi designer Claire Hammon and her husband, Meadowlark is a jewellery…

city of angels

The Victoria’s Secret Angels have officially hung up their wings. At the turn of the decade, in a post-#MeToo world, the lingerie brand’s monolithic definition of sexiness (push-up bras and sculpted abs) was finally deemed out of date, with the annual TV special called off last November following falling ratings and rampant criticism. Instead, meet Imogen Fox, Juno Dawson, Enam Asiama, Megan Jayne Crabbe, Vanessa Sison and Netsai Tinaresse Dandajena, six women who took part in a woke re-creation of the show by photographer Linda Blacker. Feathers, bling and lace are all still fixtures in the shoot, but it’s also a vision of diversity: showcasing women of different shapes, sizes, colours and sexualities. “I wanted to create something that celebrates all women, to let you know that you are sexy, you can…

learn by heart

Meet Dujuan, a 10-year-old Arrernte/Garrwa boy from central Australia. Dujuan is a child healer with an extensive knowledge of bush medicine. He’s also a skilled hunter who speaks three languages and addressed the United Nations last year with an eloquent speech about the Australian education and youth justice systems. Despite his talents and accomplishments, Dujuan is “failing” in school and facing scrutiny from welfare and police. Every time he gets an ‘E’ grade on his report card, he feels stupid. In the upcoming documentary, In My Blood It Runs, director Maya Newell (right) follows Dujuan at school, where he’s disengaged and rebellious, and in his ancestral homeland, where he’s focused and learning. Newell, who directed the influential film Gayby Baby in 2015 telling the stories of four children in same-sex families,…
