Once a month there’s a soft slam on the floor. I’ll often stay in bed, nestle into my duvet and extend a smile knowing that soon, my morning coffee will be served alongside a new issue of British Vogue.
April’s issue was delivered in due course and placed on the coffee table for me as I rubbed my eyes and anticipated a long day of writing. Coffee made, it was time to rip open the unassuming packaging that the magazine is delivered in.
This month (April Issue) sees a tantalising Kate Moss adorn the front. It’s only fair, and wise to skip straight to page 170 and see what all the fuss is about. Profit and Moss it says. Fiona Golfer writes. Mert and Marcus photograph. Kate Phelan styles. It’s a powerhouse of names.
As for The 100, Vogue celebrates the British fashion brands that have flourished whether big or small. Starting with Burberry– declared as The Super Brand, as the pages continue to explore couturiers Ralph & Russo, newcomers like Molly Goddard and Arthur Yates (of Bruta) and the Digital Dynamos including Very and The Outnet.
The entire issue, as one expects of British Vogue, is dense and beautiful. A must read for the rest of the month.
