Cool, quirky and creative are words that have long been associated with London fashion. Now add sophisticated, technically cutting-edge and deeply desirable into the mix and you get a sense of the breathtaking designs being produced in the English capital. With London Fashion Week in full flow, this issue of The Edit focuses on the city’s most covetable collections – and who better to model them than best-dressed-list regulars Alexa Chung, Laura Bailey and Poppy Delevingne, who disclose the secrets behind their British style.
Another Londoner with true global influence is this week’s interviewee, the ever-fascinating artist, filmmaker and mother of four Sam Taylor-Johnson, photographed for us by Patrick Demarchelier. We also reveal details of Tracey Emin’s new video
project lighting up New York’s Times Square this month; assess the style evolution of Sienna Miller, and compile the ultimate London beauty address book, unveiling those responsible for the sleek polish of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Gwyneth Paltrow.
