“I love the nude hue of this simple sweatshirt.”

The spring/summer seasons always bring with them a degree of heat, but SS14 is truly, irresistibly seductive. Beautiful tactile fabrics – silks, satins, soft wools – beg to caress your skin. A palette of blush, putty, peach and rose, highlighted by magpie embellishments, could create a girlish effect, but instead conjures images of a woman in complete control – a woman who knows her allure is a combination of confidence, awareness and mystery.
Embodying exactly that spirit for us this week is Sophie Dahl. After spending her twenties in the spotlight as one of the world’s most in-demand models, she has built a new career as an author and now a curator. She talks about her latest stylish endeavor on page 10 and shows just how alluring
new-season pieces by Christopher Kane, Chloé and Givenchy can be.
