Welcome to the first issue of NET-A-PORTER's new online magazine, The Edit. Each themed weekly edition will celebrate women with great style and a great story – see our profiles this week on supermodel and philanthropist Natalia Vodianova, and Yana Peel, the elegant global CEO challenging the way we think – and bring you the ultimate edit of the season's must-wear trends and game-changing pieces.
This issue is inspired by the fresh, modern mood of the SS13 collections, replete with its pure color palette and clean shapes. From our pick of spring's standout white pieces (witness the chic return of the white stiletto!), to the pure beauty of a new Man Ray exhibition, we bring you the simpler – but no less complex – things in life. I am also delighted to introduce two regular sections: Style Rethink,
where this week writer Christa D'Souza overcomes her attachment to figure-hugging bodices and teetering platforms to tackle the "no-sex sexy" trend; and Runway To Real Life, in which our video stylist, Kim Hersov, makes key runway pieces work for off duty, office and out.
