editor’s letter

At Vogue, we are always looking forward to what we will be wearing next season, along with who we will be watching, listening to, admiring, reading and being inspired by. That’s one of the best things about my job, and as I get older my appreciation and admiration for younger generations only grows. Youth can get a bad rap, and yet they are the ones to whom the future belongs and who will drive us towards it. We have dedicated this March issue to the next generation of talents, who, as our cover states, are “setting the agenda”. We celebrate Amy Shark, who was highly awarded at the ARIAs, where her debut album Love Monster won her album of the year, along with best female artist and best pop release. We…

EMMA KATE BOYD “I’d just flown in from New York, so the first jet lag move was a dip in the ocean … I didn’t care how cold it was!” says model Emma Kate Boyd of her first fashion shoot for Vogue Australia, photographed in Currarong, New South Wales – see page 182. Working with wildlife such as a kangaroo, kookaburras and a snake was a fun experience for the Kiwi beauty – “the baby roo Bella was a charmer” – and the job ended up being one of her favourites. “I had a great team to work with and I felt like I was on a getaway with friends – animals included!” JOE BRENNAN Sydney-based photographer Joe Brennan, who captured a group of young creatives for ‘The graduates’, from page 134, says…

trailblazer

It’s been a year since Emma Watson guest-edited our groundbreaking March 2018 issue and helped us shine a spotlight on sustainable, ‘thoughtful’ fashion. A champion of sustainability and human rights, the British actor and activist brought her passions and inspirations to our pages, sharing her favourite ethical fashion labels, highlighting human rights and feminist issues, exploring her love of literature, and more. Fittingly, it was from this issue that Vogue appointed its first sustainability editor at large, Clare Press, who since then has kept us at the forefront of ethical fashion. So what positive changes have occurred over the past 12 months? More fashion labels have banned fur, are using new materials made from reused and repurposed products and are aiming for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Consumer…

Moving into my own apartment after years of sharing was a huge relief; no more arguments over whose turn it was to clean the kitchen or nights spent consoling housemates crying hysterically after being dumped. Instead, I’d get home from work, kick off my shoes and revel in the quiet solitude – for a while, at least. After a year of quiet bliss, slight loneliness started to set in on nights spent by myself. Through the walls, I could sometimes hear neighbours watching the same TV shows and wondered: were they also watching alone and fancied company? Despite living in such close proximity, I didn’t even know any of their names – I was hardly in a position to knock on their doors and invite them around. The only time we encountered each other…

SHEER TALENT In the spirit of the new generation of check and its offshoots, bring levity into the equation. An airy sheer lightens the mood. PATCH PERFECT The discordant clash of lines lends a haphazard feel to a statement piece. A sweeping skirt gives it room to show off. IN THE FRAME The rustic charm of a blouse in country check frames the face and finds its place in the urban environment if accessorised just so. Try shrunken glasses and tough jewellery. PRETTY PERFECT A summery madras taps into the print’s less serious side. Kitsch with a kick is trending right now, so tune into ultra-feminine vibes in bubblegum pink. WINNING SUIT Checks and tartan have made it through the decades, so return to the era getting airplay right now: the 80s. Going all out keeps it young, so…

anything goes

CHASING RAINBOWS If you’re going to go for colour, this is the time to really be going for it. From marigold yellow to the kind of blue only seen in Australian skies, it’s not a spring/summer ’19 trend without an all-over dose of a single tone. SHOULDER TO SHOULDER With silhouettes of late emphasising drama and volume, our eyes have adjusted to expect a top-heavy shape. Drawing from menswear influences – but oversized and exaggerated for the runway – it’s a razor-sharp entrée into one of the season’s most powerful looks. NEUTRAL GROUND Here’s a fashion trick for all the ages: an outfit in shades of beige is the lazy (or extremely busy) woman’s shortcut to sartorial polish. And there is variation within the scope, from Chanel’s lady-like gold-flecked beige suit set layered with gold…
