In her essay on page 8, Poppy Delevingne wisely says, “Good friendship can make your heart light, it can make you feel giddy, it can make you feel like when you fall in love.” As I sat with the British model and her friend of 10 years, Alexa Chung, over a long lunch in Ibiza, (which included healthy juice shots and a couple of not-so healthy piña coladas), it was clear that theirs is one such friendship. Compliments flying back and forth as furiously as their outrageous banter; Delevingne ordering a new bikini for Chung from her Blackberry; the conversational shorthand between the pair of them so well-worn that an eyebrow quirk replaces the need for words – true friendship really can be a love affair.
If, like me, you feel inspired by the glorious-looking
road trip of our covershoot and pre-fall’s Western-inspired pieces, grab your best girlfriend, a Sensi Studio hat, some Isabel Marant boots and a Miguelina crochet top, and set out on one of the routes we’ve picked out in Travel on page 16. You won’t regret it.
