VOGUE EDITOR’S LETTER
VOGUE VIRTUAL WORLD • The cybersphere of Vogue never sleeps. Our digital hub means you can stay up to date and connected around the clock. Breakthroughs in style are made on the street, but new developments in fashion can also bubble up online. Find us on every platform, be it Instagram, TikTok, YouTube or Pinterest, or via a tweet. If it’s set to go viral, you will have read it in Vogue.
JULIA STONE ON CHANGING COURSE • When the pandemic shut down entertainment last year, Julia Stone was forced to evaluate her place in the world without live music. Her search uncovered a passion for connecting with others and led her to being a trained volunteer with The Anxiety Recovery Centre Victoria. Here, she writes about what it taught her about her own mental health and the power of listening.
CAN YOU FEEL IT? • Designers created with emotion this season. Further away from the runways than ever before physically, we are forging closer connections with what we wear as we choose pieces that mirror how we feel. Here, shop spring/summer ’21 as the moods we most want to embrace.
IN HER STRIDE • The reigning shape of the spring/ summer ’21 runways, wide-leg pants have versatility and comfort in spades. Australian model Shimma Marie wears them well.
TALKING STRAIGHT • Opt into a classic with the one denim piece to buy this season: straight-cut jeans in a timeless mid-wash – just-worn-in blue is the target – and with a rigid vintage-feel denim that elongates the legs hip to toe.
ALBER ELBAZ FROM A-Z • After a five-year hiatus from fashion, Alber Elbaz is back. Katrina Israel takes a look inside his brand-new dream factory.
ROWI SINGH • Sydney-based make-up artist Rowi Singh – who’s as known for her support of diverse creatives through her collective, The Artist Archives, as she is for her exhilarating talent – reflects on her aesthetic inspirations, and the stories and historical figures that inspire her.
FIT FOR PURPOSE • Made-to-measure clothing has long been the domain of the elite, but no more. These Australian designers talk through the process, explaining that the new custom approach is made for one, yes, but can also be a fit for all.
STAGE PRESENCE • Designed as an homage to ballet, from which Van Cleef & Arpels has long drawn inspiration, this diamond and sapphire masterpiece from the jeweller’s Ballet Précieux High Jewellery collection, emanates a grace and poetry characteristic of the dance form, reminding us of the joy of performance as it returns to our stages.
FINE FINISH • Opt into a brand of ladylike glamour that puts polish in prime position. With autumn racing season upon us, Vogue picks the pieces with poise that have appeal beyond solely race day.
A YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING • A pandemic threw three Australian creatives preparing to launch their own labels into chaos, but instead of disaster, they uncovered focus, creativity and a deep well of ingenuity that may come to define them, and us, now.
FUZZY LOGIC • Vogue explores the latest in ethical fashion, including knits with soul and groundbreaking changes in leather.
STATE OF PLAY • Vogue Living’s style editor at large, Joseph Gardner, divulges the style cues to take from the world of interiors. This month, a playful optimism takes over.
UNDER HER SPELL • Revered for her work in film, fashion and art, the ever-compelling Tilda Swinton – currently in Sydney to shoot...
