December marks?
? my one-year anniversary at this magazine, and so I cannot help but reflect on
what an extraordinary year 2018 has been ? for the world at large, of course, but
also for the fashion industry, and for me and my team here at Vogue. In more than
a quarter of a century working as an editor and stylist, I?m not sure I?ve ever
experienced such a breakneck 12 months, when so many of the old rules that once
defined the way we operated have been called into question and, in many cases,
been thoroughly ? and thankfully! ? debunked.
It really has been incredible. When I think back to this moment last year, when,
having returned to London after several years in New York, I was putting the
finishing touches to my first issue as Vogue?s newly arrived editor-in-chief, there
were so many questions running through my head. The first was: would people
buy a fashion magazine with a black model on the cover in the same numbers
that they would if she were white? The prevailing industry wisdom was so steadfast
on this front ? people believed you couldn?t do it without taking a hit on sales,
with the implication being that women of colour were somehow not what people
wanted to see. So I took a deep breath and settled on the mixed-race British model
Adwoa Aboah as my first cover star.
The response? Phenomenal. In the months since, I?m pleased to say we?ve shone
our cover spotlight on a glorious spectrum of talent ? from brand-new model
Fran Summers, 19, to media titan Oprah Winfrey, 64 ? and many of the highestselling issues have celebrated what the industry now likes to call ?diversity?.
Obviously, this has not happened in a vacuum. If Vogue has changed, it is because
the world has. But I am pleased and proud of how, in these times of fast-moving
evolution, the magazine has done what it always should: lead.
Despite some of the all too obvious stresses, these are exciting times. Naturally,
some days it can feel like the noise of the modern age ? be it the ceaseless stream
of trends to digest on Instagram or opinions on Twitter, to say nothing of the
unsettling reality of the 24-hour news cycle ? is too much. But with uncertainty
comes potential for things to get better. I had only been in the job a few weeks >

to change the world
? in October. Below:
Eva Wiseman
interviewed ?the
new suffragettes?,
February 2018
when the #metoo sexual harassment scandal rocked my industry and others. Cond�
Nast, our publisher, was quick to act, bringing in a new code of conduct, and while
this story will not be going away any time soon, I have begun to see a positive sea
change permeate many areas of the way we go about creating the magazine: respect
is fundamental, body image matters, sexuality is no longer rigid, and age is never
about a simple number. Politics, we have all discovered, is as much about your
identity as it is about your party (probably more so).
Of course, at the centre of everything we do here is fashion. The adage ?Buy
nothing until you buy Vogue? holds as true today as it ever has. And fashion imagery
is proving as important as ever ? to make us dream, to transport us to other worlds,
and to reshape the one we?re in. I am very proud of our world-leading fashion
editors, who have not only revolutionised the casting process, but worked with
the most celebrated photographers in the business to tell the stories of our times,
whether their themes are Brexit, body size or a timeless celebration of beauty.
And so, for this month?s cover, it seemed only right to assemble a cast of exciting
faces who will shape the next stage of the journey ? be they current catwalk queen
Adut Akech, sparkling new models Saffron Vadher and Primrose Archer, or
industry legend Stella Tennant in a glorious cover image I chose to mark 25 years
to the month since her first appearance within these pages (fittingly, both were
photographed by Steven Meisel). Meanwhile, my mission here at Vogue is to keep
asking important questions. If this year has taught us anything, it is that we can
always do better. When I look ahead to 2019, I want to make sure that we continue
to try to foster our new and emboldening idea of what being ?elite? means: whether
it is based on unique talent, beauty, intellect or style, a person can be celebrated
no matter where they come from.
Yes, there is plenty more to be done ? but oh, what a year it has been. I?m excited
for the next one.

THOMAS LOHR
ow to catch the eye of a
world-famous author? Wear
a pink dress. This was the
conclusion to which the
American novelist Edith Wharton came
when she was invited to a party in Paris
in 1887. Set to meet her literary idol
Henry James, she wore her newest
Doucet dress. ?It was pretty,? she later
wrote. ?Tea-rose pink, embroidered with
iridescent beads.? It didn?t work. (Neither
did a particularly spectacular hat, worn
several years later, in Venice.) She had
to wait several years until James sought
her out to compliment her short fiction.
Perhaps Edith should have worn
shocking pink. After all, it worked for
Marilyn Monroe in 1953?s Gentlemen
Prefer Blondes. Who can forget that
audacious, succulent, dragon fruit-hued
strapless dress, accompanied by
?Diamonds are a Girl?s Best Friend??
A creation of costume designer William
Travilla, and made of peau d?ange glued
to felt to lend it structure, the pink dress
was run up at the last minute at the
behest of a panicked Hollywood studio,
replacing a racy showgirl costume
Travilla had originally designed (a nude
calendar of Monroe had just been
released, and the papers were going
wild). Travilla was told to ?cover her up?
in gloves and a column gown with >

Below, from top: Lady Gaga wears Valentino
Couture at the 2018 Venice Film Festival; Alexa
Chung in a dress Joan Rivers lampooned in 2010
a giant bow. Instead, the hotpink dress made her a star.
Pink is unapologetically
intense, a strange admixture
of prissy and punk; joy and
danger. Even in a please-andthank-you pale baby shade,
it never fails to look festive.
Designers are feeling it for
a/w ?18 and resort: pink
dresses from sulky calamine
to cyclamen and Stabilo
highlighter tumbled down
catwalks like petals, at Louis
Vuitton, Balenciaga, Gucci,
Molly Goddard, Philosophy di Lorenzo
Serafini and Attico. All were decidedly
after-dark dresses with a common goal:
to provide pleasure ? and to induce their
wearer to stay up late.
?I?ve always had a great night in
a pink dress,? says Alexa Chung. ?A lot
of my life is spent in jeans and T-shirts,
so when along comes a sassy, eyecatching, cute ? but in a hot way ? pink
minidress, it?s like discovering water in
a desert. I love the fantasy and escapism
of it.? Molly Goddard, whose autumn
collection features a number of ?sickly
pink? smock taffeta dresses, concurs. ?I
have about 10 pink dresses and fondly
recall the night after my first Fashion
Week presentation, when me and 10 of
my friends did a fashion party crawl
until the early hours, me running around
Soho in a pink tulle dress and Converse.?
In its most pigment-heavy shades,
pink promises impact that?s universally
effective. Holly Golightly, widely
acknowledged to be film?s most stylish
screen presence, understood its brutal
charm. Her wardrobe in 1961?s Breakfast
at Tiffany?s is largely severe, clean and
black. She saves the burst of colour for
a shocking-pink, green-rhinestonestudded, bell-shaped Givenchy dress ?
worn to woo her Brazilian politician Jos�
da Silva Pereira (Audrey Hepburn, the
actress who played her in the adaptation
of Truman Capote?s novella, declared:
?I believe in pink?).
Pink and parties don?t
always work out, though in
some cases that?s down to
design. Chung recalls a pink
frilly Valentino Couture dress she loved,
which was lampooned by Joan Rivers
on Fashion Police. ?I?ve never laughed
harder,? recalls Chung. ?She asked me
if I actually thought I could get laid in
it. I said I didn?t think that was the point.
This perplexed both of us.?
Still, ?mature? is the best mentality
for pink this Christmas. Giorgia Tordini,
whose label Attico has a number of
standout pink party dresses for autumn,
counsels a ?less is more? approach.
A serial woman in black, she has
unexpectedly fallen for the hue. ?I?m
surprised at myself, but every fabric
I chose for the collection just seemed
right in pink,? she says. ?I loved wearing
our pink ostrich feather dress, but since
pink is very unusual for me, I styled it
with very minimal accessories: I advise
black stilettos or very thin black highheeled sandals and a little black pouch.?
Susie Cave, whose label The Vampire?s
Wife does a fine line in pink dresses,
likes the shade in its palest state. ?My
preference is blush? it has a strange
ethereal quality and feels connected to
childhood and memory,? she emails.
Still, her Medici brocade dress in
Cartland pink is my personal favourite.
It has taken me on many a wild night
out ? and when I last wore it to a party,
a good-looking stranger remarked that
I looked like ?a gorgeous Easter egg?.
Edith Wharton would have melted. Q

t was the dead of winter and an icy -13C when Lily
Collins arrived in Brussels to start filming the BBC?s
long-awaited adaptation of Les Mis閞ables. As Fantine
? an orphaned, penniless young woman forced into
prostitution ? Collins went through ?a very drastic
transformation?, so much so that people didn?t recognise
the young movie star on set. ?I really got to see what I was
made of on this shoot,? Collins says from the warmer climes
of LA. ?Whether it was the temperature or the workload or
the physicality of Fantine and her storyline and her sadness,
I learned what I could withstand.? Like many, Collins?s first
experience of Victor Hugo?s classic novel was as a musical
(a school production, rather than West End), although this
latest version won?t include singing ? so any Anne Hathaway
comparisons can be put to bed now. ?You get to see the
character in a different way when there?s not a song,? says
Collins. ?What was said in a lyric gets to be a fully fledged
scene. It?s been a real bucket-list thing to do.?

THERE?S
SOMETHING
ABOUT MARY
Thanks to Hamilton, writer and
actor Lin-Manuel Miranda is
musical theatre?s most wanted. Now
he?s revisiting a classic, he tells Vogue
AS TOLD TO HAYLEY MAITLAND. FAMEFLYNET UK;
GETTY; JAY MAIDMENT/2018 DISNEY ENTERPRISES
M
y earliest memory of Mary Poppins is of the
padded cream box that all Disney videos came
in during the 1980s. Every couple of months,
I?d take it out of its sleeve, push it into an old
VHS player and find Julie Andrews? flying nanny and Dick
Van Dyke?s chimney sweep jumping through a pavement
sketch into a Technicolor fantasy world. Like every child
who came of age after 1964, I tried and failed to spell
supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and wished I could hold
a tea party while floating in mid-air. The only problem was
I could never get past ?Feed the Birds?. Every time I heard
the chorus, I would end up in tears and switch off the video.
It was a lesson that has stayed with me ever since: a perfect
melody will wreck you. And yet, here I am, 30 years later
starring in the follow-up to perhaps the greatest family musical
of all time. It was just after I left the cast of Hamilton that
I was asked to do Mary Poppins Returns, joining Emily Blunt,
Meryl Streep, and even original cast member Dick Van Dyke,
in a sequel that comes a record-breaking 54 years after the
original. Of course, if it had been a remake I would have
turned it down ? the original is too perfect to tamper with
? but the idea that PL Travers had continued the Poppins
novels and there was a fresh story to bring to life was
irresistible. Mary?s world has always worked on many levels.
As a child, of course, you?re just dazzled by the fantasy of this
umbrella-wielding nanny and the world that she conjures
Lin-Manuel
Miranda as Jack
the lamplighter
in Mary Poppins
Returns.

? but as an adult, you realise that the narrative is a modernday fable about the importance of family above all else,
particularly in times of hardship. It rings as true for me as it
does for countless fans around the world.
Growing up in Washington Heights, Manhattan, it was
one of many musicals that shaped my childhood, even though
we didn?t have the money to go to shows regularly. In fact,
the only ones I saw before I turned 18 were the holy trinity
of Broadway at the time: Cats, Les Mis閞ables and Phantom of
the Opera. What I did have access to were hundreds of cast
recordings. My Puerto Rican parents kept pop records and
show tunes side by side in their vinyl record collection, and
my mother would blast the soundtrack to Camelot while my
father belted out the songs from The Unsinkable Molly Brown.
I?d listen to Jesus Christ Superstar and Man of La Mancha on
repeat, building characters and sets in my mind to fit the lyrics.
Ultimately, though, I fell in love with musical theatre by
acting in it. I was lucky enough to be a student at the Hunter
school on the Upper East Side, where performing arts form
a key part of the curriculum. I played a son in Fiddler on the
Roof, a farmer in Oklahoma!, a munchkin in The Wizard of >
I could never
get past ?Feed
the Birds?.

you ask, I
worked hard
on trying

128
Oz, Captain Hook in Peter Pan,
Bernardo in West Side Story and,
best of all, Conrad Birdie in Bye
Bye Birdie, where I got to sing
my heart out in a gold lam�
jacket and watch the rest of my
year pretend to faint in wonder.
I was hooked. By my first year of high school, I was playing
the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance, a role that normally
went to an older student. I still count it as one of the greatest
accomplishments of my life.
When a musical is firing on all cylinders, it?s impossible
to beat it. The performances! The costumes! The set design!
I?ve never gotten over watching that chandelier rise into place
when I first saw Phantom of the Opera as a 12-year-old. All
that before you even consider the music ? which has the
power to make you feel like your heart has been ripped out
while simultaneously lifting you up. Every time I hear
?Defying Gravity? from Wicked or ?And I Am Telling You
I?m Not Going? from Dream Girls performed on stage, I leave
the theatre altered on some molecular level.
By the time I graduated from school, I had decided I was
going to work in musical theatre. The only problem was that
there were no real parts for Latinos outside of West Side Story.
Seeing Rent made me realise there was no reason why a musical
needed to be set in a faraway time and place ? and, critically,
that if I didn?t do it, no one was going to tell my story for me.
While I was at university, I wrote In the Heights, a musical set
over three days in my family?s neighbourhood, which became
my first Broadway show. Many years later, I wrote Hamilton,
which changed my life forever. In the audience on any given
night, there might be Barack Obama or Busta Rhymes. It
proved what I had long suspected ? that the best musicals can
touch a nerve in just about anyone. It is the universal art form.
None more so than Mary. From the beginning, our new
film has been crafted as a love letter to the original, set 20
years after the Edwardian era but with the same key message
at its heart. There?s the musical score, composed by Marc
Shaiman and Scott Wittman (of Hairspray and Charlie and
the Chocolate Factory fame) as a sort of homage to the Sherman
brothers? original numbers. There?s our director Rob Marshall?s
meticulous recreation of the Bankses? house and Cherry Tree
Lane. Most importantly, there?s the same commitment to
spreading happiness: to take people away from the craziness
of today?s world and give them a restorative shot of pure joy.
Before filming began, my wife, son and I relocated to
London and immersed ourselves in British life. I had only
been to the UK before to see shows in the West End, and
I wanted to understand the culture that had given rise to the
world of the Banks family. I soon discovered that Britain may
boast about being the home of Shakespeare, but its real treasures
are a lot less highbrow, like Dip Dabs and Fawlty Towers. Then,
there was my character to master. I play a lamplighter once
trained by Bert, alongside Emily?s Mary, who flies back into
Cherry Tree Lane when the now-grown-up Banks children
experience a tragedy. And before you ask, yes, I worked hard
on trying to nail that cockney accent. If I?ve pulled it off then
you can thank Ms Blunt (if I haven?t, then blame me).
It was only when production started at Shepperton Studios
in Middlesex, though, that I fully understood the magic of
what we were doing. Every day, we would step back in time
to the London of the 1930s, dancing on cobblestoned streets
or flying kites in the park. When I?m on stage, it?s a rush to
have an audience directly in front of me, watching my every
move. Working on Mary Poppins Returns, that same rush
came from knowing I only had a few chances to get a musical
number right ? particularly when we were filming outside
of the studio. We were never going to be able to take over
Buckingham Palace again or get 120 men on vintage bicycles
to ride through central London.
For me, the real difficulty is waiting for people to see it.
You do a show-stopping musical number, and then must wait
a year for the applause. I?m looking forward to sneaking into
cinemas in December so I can watch viewers? reactions. That
said, when I saw the rough cut for the first time, I understood
why actors struggle to watch their own films. Every scene
conjured a distinct memory of what happened as we were
making it ? like the day I knocked my head and had to do a
routine that involved lifting a flat cap on and off a swelling
bump a million times, or the occasion when I was told to
give a particular scene ?a bit more welly? ? surely the most
British command ever given.
In hindsight, my favourite moment happened before we
even started filming. We were working with an orchestra of
incredibly professional British musicians ? the epitome of
the stiff-upper-lip stereotype. For a couple of hours, none
of them so much as looked up for any of our jokes, keeping
a razor-sharp focus on sight-reading the music. Then, towards
the end of the day, it was time for ?Let?s Go Fly a Kite? ? and
their professional fa鏰de just collapsed. It was as if these
academy-trained cellists and violinists had suddenly realised
what they were playing and nostalgic tears began streaming
down their faces. That?s how deep this musical goes. Mary
Poppins: practically perfect in every way.

The simple life
Inside a decluttered modernist house in Highgate
? unearthed and restored by Faye Toogood
and Matt Gibberd. By Ellie Pithers.

I
f you are a frequent consumer of house porn, chances are The Modern
House will feature heavily in your browser history. A sumptuously
packaged estate agency for some of the UK?s most remarkable
homes ? modernist and otherwise ? its co-founder Matt Gibberd
nonetheless insists that he was never tempted to purchase a property from
his own website. Until, that is, he was invited to make a valuation
of a box-like building in London?s Highgate.
You?d never know it was there. Set back from the road, sandwiched
between a row of smart 19th-century townhouses and hidden behind an
unprepossessing garage door, the former home of the Swiss-born architect
Walter Segal doesn?t show up on Google Maps. Built in the early 1960s
by Segal, the enthusiastic father of the self-build movement, for himself
and his family, the house is as compact and functional as a Swiss Army
knife. There is a vast, verdant garden. At its foot sits the first ?Segal method?
building, which dispensed with traditional bricklaying and plastering >

techniques in favour of mass-produced materials assembled
in their market sizes. (It took Segal two weeks to make and
cost �0; he and his family lived in it while their home was
being built.) One glance and Gibberd was smitten.
?It was an awkward conversation,? he admits, recalling
that first visit to the house. ?I stood in the garden thinking,
?Wow. This is very special.? So, I said to the owner, ?It would
be dishonest of me to give you a valuation because, funnily
enough, I think this house would be great for our family.?
He took it very well, and put it on the market with a local
agent.? Fate conspired: several months later Gibberd received
a call. The owner had had multiple offers but never succeeded
in putting a chain together. Gibberd, meanwhile, had just
completed the sale of his family home in nearby Canonbury.
?Basically, he wanted to sell it to us because he knew we
weren?t going to flatten it,? he smiles.
On the contrary: Gibberd was uniquely placed to safeguard
the house ? which needed modernising ? being an architecture
journalist who is married to the polymathic designer Faye
Toogood. ?We just stripped it back,? says Toogood, in
characteristically nonchalant fashion. ?And we decided that
everything had to be white.? The original acoustic-board
ceilings and exposed pale bricks were restored; faded cupboard
doors replaced with cream felt-covered plywood; bathrooms
upgraded in deliciously smooth Portman stone composite, and
the kitchen via polished concrete. The couple?s furniture from
their house in Canonbury ? a listed Georgian terrace, all moody
marble mantelpieces and dramatic dark-gloss wood ? had to
go. ?The other house was a bit like living in a Vermeer painting,
but when we put all our old furniture in here, everything just
looked so completely wrong,? says Toogood. Now, their only
concession to colour is a Patrick Procktor painting given to
Toogood by Gibberd for their wedding anniversary, which
hangs above their bed ? that, and plenty of lush leaves from
the trees gently brushing the windows. ?Waking up in the
morning, it feels like you?re in a treehouse,? she says.
The couple, both 41, met while working at The World of
Interiors magazine when they were in their early twenties.
Gibberd was a writer and sub-editor; Toogood worked her
way up from prop stylist to interiors editor. She left in 2008
to launch a multidisciplinary studio, and now designs
furniture and interiors for clients including Mulberry and
Herm鑣, as well as running a luxuriously sculptural (but
wearable) fashion line with her sister, Erica, entitled
Toogood. Gibberd co-founded The Modern House in 2005,
bringing his editorial eye to real estate, an industry that has
largely eschewed storytelling. They have three children ?
newborn twins, Wren and Etta, and a five-year-old daughter,
Indigo ? and split their time between Hampshire, near
where Toogood?s parents live, and London.
Three young children? In this exquisitely uncluttered house
in shades of ivory and clotted cream? Toogood laughs.
?I took the approach that if they grew up with it, they?d get
used to it. It?s when you remove things and try to put them
back that they want to touch it and use it and maybe break
it.? Gibberd gestures at the cleverly hidden cupboards that
Segal installed throughout the house. ?Everything comes out
and it?s carnage, and then everything is put away at the end
of the day. Chaos is good.? He admits, however, that he
cannot get to sleep if there?s mess. ?It?s very strange but
I just can?t have stuff on the bedroom floor,? he smiles, wryly.
?I can?t handle it at all. I have to put it in a cupboard.?
If his preference for hyper-clean interiors has been softened,
it?s down to Toogood, who describes her work as ?minimalist

folk?. ?When I first met Matt I had a flat full of stuff,? she
chuckles. ?I was very acquisitive, always collecting things; he
was almost the opposite. When we moved in together he
made me edit everything down, which was good. I like the
process of cleaning out, picking things that are important to
me.? Still, Gibberd, the son of architects (his grandfather,
Sir Frederick Gibberd, was the celebrated modernist architect
who designed the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool), has
had to adapt to his wife?s decorative urges. ?I very much trust
Faye?s judgement,? he says. ?And though some of her stuff
is quite flamboyant, it?s still very ordered.?
Certainly, the overall effect is effortlessly functional but
serene, leavened by the sunlight that streams through original
Segal-era windows comprising simple, frameless panels of
glass that slide in front of each other. Neither is there anything
clinical about the minimalism: each room is filled
with curiosities. A courtyard dotted with Willy Guhl
planters leads to the kitchen, filled with aluminium
cupboards sprayed with car paint and dominated by
counters, found in a junk shop, from an 18th-century
dairy. In the living room, a tapestry by Toogood hangs
above the sofa, next to a silo-shaped tambour unit
from her first collection of furniture, and an inherited
Marcel Breuer chair. Throughout the house, the walls
are peppered with understated works, including a
Henry Moore drawing that once belonged to Gibberd?s
grandfather, a Roger Hilton picture, a Malick Sidib�
photograph bought by Faye when she visited the
Malian photographer in his studio for a World of Interiors
shoot years ago, and a hat by Judy Blame.
The composition changes periodically, often to
disconcerting effect. ?If Faye has an afternoon to herself,
which happens rarely, I?ll come home and find her with a
slightly flustered look,? says Gibberd. ?I?ll creep around and
realise she?s completely reorganised the house.? ?I just love
this conversation with objects!? laughs Toogood, the daughter
of an ornithologist, who spent her countryside childhood
curating her collections of rocks and birds? eggs. ?Arranging
things over and over is something in my life I always come
back to.? Occasionally it gets too much. ?When that happens,
I just lock her in here,? jokes Gibberd, gesturing to the
walk-in wardrobe. ?I call this Faye?s panic room. I let her
out half an hour later and generally she?s much calmer.? Q
?When we
moved in

PUTTING

When it comes to
throwing the perfect party
at home, the rules are
ever-changing. Vogue
gathers the experts
THE PRO PLANNERS
DUANE MICHALS; PIXELATE.BIZ
I
n November 2015, Mich鑜e Lamy
FaceTimed Jon Gray to ask him to
throw a dinner party at her and her
husband Rick Owens?s house in
Paris. The city was still reverberating
with the horror of the terrorist attacks
two weeks earlier, and Gray ?wanted an
excuse to bring people together. We
took over Mich鑜e?s house and had a
Thanksgiving dinner with 220 people
at this really long table with turkey,
sweet potatoes, green beans and racks
of lamb. It was amazing.?
Bringing people together is what Jon
Gray does. As one of the co-founders of
Ghetto Gastro ? a kitchen born in the
Bronx in 2012, but with a global footprint
? the 32-year-old and his three-strong
team of chefs (who have worked at the
likes of Noma and Le Cirque) have
gained a reputation not just for their
innovative menus, but for throwing
unmissable parties. Straddling the worlds
of art, fashion, food and music, Ghetto
Gastro has hosted everything from
intimate suppers to parties for hundreds,
from Italy and Sweden to Japan.
When it comes to entertaining at
home, Gray has some key tips. ?People
don?t like to take, they like to give as well,?
he advises. ?I think it?s always a good
gesture to have cultural exchange where
people can bring something that
represents them. Whether that?s getting
their favourite pastry or Japanese whisky,
Charlotte Tilbury

if everyone brings a piece of them to the
party, it becomes a communal experience.?
If there?s one thing people get wrong
when hosting it?s ?taking it too seriously.
Have you ever been to a party and the
host is just so stressed that they can?t even
interact with you? People aren?t going
with super-high expectations to have the
most gourmet meal. They?re going for
the company. A lot of times the last
frontier for real human interaction is
around the dinner table. You don?t have
to be a mixologist to make a cocktail. Take
some coconut water, some cognac, a little
bit of lime ? that?s a vibe.? If in doubt?
?Make sure the champagne is chilled.?
It?s one thing being a good host, but
being a gracious guest is important, too.
?The first thing I do when I walk into

A guide to party etiquette, by Sabine Getty
ON CONVERSATION
Avoid questions about work and
personal life: I don?t want to be asked
about where I grew up, I just want to
laugh. Be silly, people watch, make jokes.
ON DANCING
You can?t call it a party until someone
is dancing in your living room as if they
were in Studio 54. My favourite people
are those whose moves are bordering on
interpretive dance. But don?t spill your
drink on me ? I?m always wearing

ON DECLINING INVITATIONS
There is only one way to do it: within 24
hours. If you have a busy schedule, you
should know straight away if you are able
to attend. Cancelling late makes it look
like you have been waiting for a better
invitation. The last-minute cancellation
is one you should always do yourself ?
don?t make your PA send an email. And
?owers are always appreciated.

I also like rich, aromatic ciders (such

Soak up the sun on the pine-tree
pillared private Silence Beach
The only difficulty comes in
choosing the sunlounger on
which to spread your towel
For guests whose ideal holiday involves
aqua aplenty, the resort?s several swimming
pools will more than satisfy. A water park,
the main pool with magnificent views
across the bay, a heated saltwater pool,
the exclusive laguna pool, a semiOlympic-sized indoor pool (to each their
own, after all), and a couple of shallow
pools for children. The only difficulty
comes in choosing the sunlounger on
which to spread your towel.
The daily decision is fur ther
complicated by the scatter of private
beaches joining the resort to the
turquoise shore, bridged by a vast expanse
of shimmering sands. Private cabanas
on the Long Beach with a calm bay
perfect for sea swimming, the familyorientated Middle Bay Beach, and the
Silence Beach, where the name says all
you need to know. Whichever you
choose, you won?t be disappointed.
But, of course, the height of relaxation
peaks at the state-of-the-art Aven Royal
Spa. An extensive menu offers ayurvedic
treatments, plant-based remedies,
healing massages, rejuvenating skincare.
From world-famous brands to local
therapies, ancient treatments to
contemporary techniques, Maxx Royal
aims to nourish every element of your
body and soul during a stay.
If something a little more adrenalinecharged is your desire, the sports facilities
will be more than enough to keep you
occupied ? from paragliding, water sports
and alpinism, to glorious tennis courts
and lessons in the likes of yoga and Muay
Thai kickboxing.
And, really, the entertainment, dining
and amenities need to be beguiling, in
order to tempt guests away from the
suites and villas in which they reside.
With breathtaking vistas from individual
balconies and terraces, the spacious
accommodation ? designed to look
elegantly minimalist and feel ultradecadent, and much of which includes
private jacuzzis and pools ? is something
brilliant to behold, and bed down in. Q

My daughters Sunday and Faith had dreamed about
having their own kittens for so long. They are very close
and wanted pets that would emulate their sisterly bond.
My husband, Keith [Urban], and I found two beautiful

surprised the girls. They named the kittens Ginger and
Snow because of their colouring. They are both so sweet in

I still believe that the best gifts are the ones
you make yourself. When I have the luxury of
time, I love to create photo albums by hand ?
could be of a holiday or could just be random
memories of a year. If I?m too busy around
Christmas, though, the company Keepsaker will edit
down your photographs then bind them into a gorgeous
leather album for you. A Russian friend of mine put me
in contact with the wholesaler Princesse d?Isenbourg,
which stocks the most incredible decadent foods in a
strange warehouse filled with sea-themed tchotchkes,
and one year I gave everyone baskets of food, the
highlight being tins of caviar. You can go for a tasting
and there is every imaginable variety ? from Royal
Beluga to Oscietra ? and it?s much more affordable than
buying retail. Plus, everyone loves caviar, including a socalled vegan I know. If you have anyone in your life who?s
really difficult to shop for, make an appointment with

I have to be honest: I?m a Jewish 53-year-old, and I?m
obsessed with Christmas. Actually, I am obsessed with the
idea of making people happy, and what makes me happy is
being able to give. I?m also the idiot who feels compelled
to find a gift for every single person I know. Tom Ford
says that I should have gone into business doing it. My
go-to present is a miniature Christmas tree that can be
planted after the holidays are over. Everybody in my life
gets one. I head to New Covent Garden Market at 5am to
choose them (the sellers there recognise me as the crazy
lady who takes home 350 pine trees every year), then I put
on an elf hat and wrap every single one ? usually with
bows. For good measure, I save every ribbon that comes
into my office and reuse them at Christmas time. It adds
a personal touch, and I feel like I?m giving back to the
environment in a small way. My other trick is to collect
luxurious blankets, scarves and throws for people when
I?m on the road and have them embroidered with the
date and the names of everyone that they love.
Tracee Ellis Ross
I learned my approach to present-giving
from my mother [Diana Ross]. She always
told me that you should choose a gift for
somebody based on what you most love
receiving. I adore flowers, so I send a lot
of bouquets, which just brings so much joy.
My mother is also the sort of person who
will give you the shirt off her back if you
compliment her on it, and I?ve inherited that
love of giving away sentimental treasures to
the right person at the right moment. Recently,
a friend of mine was about to undergo surgery, and
I gifted her a pair of earrings of mine that she had always
loved. It was a beautiful moment.

funny as well. Otherwise, my present-giving is totally
spontaneous (I?m also an appalling wrapper; I carry
presents around in my handbag and whip them out at
the last moment). Recently, for example, I was filming a
project in Ghana, and one of my co-stars was having a
birthday. He?s obsessed with bright colours, and I asked
my mum to make all of us outfits from traditional
kente cloth as a surprise ? including a patterned suit
for him ? then flew his mum out to celebrate with us.
As a girl, I always dreamed about going to college and
finding a job that would mean I could afford to buy my
mother a trip back to her native Somalia. She had to flee
after her village was invaded during the civil war, ending
up in a refugee camp in Kenya before resettling in the
United States. As it turned out, I became a model instead
of going to university, and the first big purchase that I
made was a ticket for her to go back home. She was able
to visit my grandmother and my older sister Asha, from
whom she had been separated for more than 20 years.
She was even there for the birth of Asha?s child.
My mother is my hero, and it was incredibly special
to be able to reunite her with our family.

a one-off ring of her own, and

VOGUE PARTNERSHIP
W
hen it comes to
collaborating on a design,
I think first and foremost
you have to have honesty,?
so says Sarah Harris of her approach to
the design of her own piece of jewellery.
?Choosing the cut of the diamond
was the easiest thing,? says Harris, ?an
asscher-cut diamond has always been
my favourite. My grandmother had an
asscher ring which I always loved, that?s
how I first knew of the cut.? Indeed, the
idea of imbuing meaning into every
detail of every piece aligns perfectly with
VASHI?s own.
From there, a number of conversations,
both practical and abstract, took place
between Harris and the VASHI team
of dedicated craftspeople (known inhouse as Alchemists) to create a piece
that represented all she wanted it to be.
As it went, Harris created her own take
on a modern pinky ring, opting for a
heavier setting to add impact. ?I knew
I didn?t want an ornate, fragile-looking
ring, and the idea of a matt finish also
appealed, I think it lends the design a
bit of a masculine feel.?
Full and frank engagement between
customer and maker is at the heart of
VASHI?s ethos, removing the filter
between client and craftsperson.
W hether that be for a custom
engagement ring or a personal treat
tailored to one?s own taste, the experience
allows each customer to attune every
aspect of the creation to their own style
and their own story.
For Sarah?s pinky ring, this meant
creating something with a modern,
architectural air, and a versatility.
?I think that?s the beauty of it for me,
it works as well for day as it does as a
cocktail ring at night. I hope it becomes
a modern heirloom that my daughter
might one day ask to have. But I don?t
think jewellery should be saved, it?s
intended to be worn, not kept in a box.?
Outside the box: just the kind of
thinking VASHI brings to its own way
of making jewellery made by you. Q

break in LA, which has been like taking a long,
dreamy nap,? painter Tali Lennox explains from
the all-white surroundings of her Lower East
Side-meets-Chinatown studio. ?New York is like
being very wide awake ? I?m happy to be awake again.?
The artist?s electric aesthetic comes to life in 2019 in a new
digital realm through her upcoming collaboration with
Samsung for its latest QLED TV: a breakthrough device
that sets aside the stereotypes.
The smart TV offers a fully customisable artistic space
that?s in tune with your lifestyle and interior tastes, seamlessly
blending into its environment on command. Thanks to the
personalised Ambient Mode, it analyses the pattern and
texture of the wall on which the TV is mounted, and then
displays the result on screen, leaving only the TV?s frame
visible. Its astounding chameleon-like capabilities mean that
the QLED TV can literally disappear when not in use, or
serve a subtler purpose; communicating the weather or news

or exhibiting your photographs. It can
even become something altogether more
inspiring ? a personal artwork that can
be hung on your wall, just like a canvas.
Which is where Lennox comes in. Her
collaboration with Samsung on the
QLED offers a unique visual artwork
that translates the oil painting, sketch
work and watercolors that create her
self-described ?pastel-hued land of faded
glory? (and which forged her reputation
as a talented young New York artist)
onto the screen.
Taking inspiration from the medium
of TV is something Lennox is wellversed in. ?I love to watch old Disney
films, like Fantasia or the mermaid scene
in Peter Pan. The painted animations
are simultaneously dream-like and dark,
they take me back to the elation that
one feels as a child when looking at
shiny objects or enticing colours. During
evenings in my studio I?ll listen to Erik
Satie or lose myself in the eerie nostalgia
of Barton Fink.?
The artist?s digitised collaboration for
the QLED is also indicative of her
evolving approach to showcasing her
work. ?I want to put on immersive shows,?
she adds. The surreal world of Tali Lennox
is coming to a screen near you.

sn?t there something
life-affirming
about a Christmas
tree? A gloriously
bushy, twinkling tree
ornamented in all
manner of festive fancies
? say, tied cinnamon,
strung popcorn, baubles
aplenty and precious
heirlooms passed down
through the generations.
But that is never my
Christmas tree. I?m
good at many things, but
decorating a Christmas
tree isn?t one of them.
I?m more of a minimalist;
I don?t do extras. And good Christmas
trees are all about the extras.
I have no problem when it comes to
selecting a tree. It has to be lush, dark
green, 6ft tall, perfectly symmetrical,
never bottom-heavy, branches slanted
upwards and evenly spread. I?m always
tempted to leave it at just that. Plain
and beautiful with 25ft of white ? never
coloured ? fairy lights looped around it.
Yet I can?t help but feel pangs of envy
when I see a sumptuously decorated tree.
?The Christmas tree is the most
important holiday decoration,? insists
my fr iend W hitney Bromberg
Hawkings, co-founder of Flowerbx, not
doing anything to ease the pressure.
Her favourite is a blue spruce: ?It never
disappoints, thanks to its sturdy, dense
branches and delicious winter scent,? she
says. Her rule? Keep it tonal. ?Whether
decorating in scarlets and reds, shades
of pink or cool white and silver, it is hard
to go wrong when you adhere to one
colour scheme. Experiment with silk or
velvet ribbons, baubles and other textural
elements to add depth.? Hers also boasts
an array of sentimental decorations. ?My
mum collected ornaments from across
the globe throughout our lives, and when
she passed away we divided them among
the four siblings. Now we always Skype
each other as we dress our trees and
share happy holiday memories.?
No heirlooms? No matter. Matilda
Goad, contributing editor at House &
Garden, is into Swedish straw decorations.
?They feel a bit nostalgic but equally on
trend, with all the rattan and raffia in
homeware this year,? she offers. She?s also
a fan of traditional striped candy canes
and ribbons, which she fashions from
scraps of gingham and lam� ?Keep them
long so they look lavish.?
The unveiling of the tree at Claridge?s
is a talking point of Mayfair and beyond.
For almost a decade, its decoration has
been taken over by a designer, beginning
in 2009 with John Galliano at Dior.
He concocted a frozen tropical tree
installation with snakes and leopards.
?It took a bold general manager to agree
to it,? says Paula Fitzherbert, director
of communications for Claridge?s, The
Berkeley and The Connaught. To date,
Claridge?s has enlisted everyone from
Karl Lagerfeld to Apple?s Jony Ive and
industrial designer Marc Newson. This
year?s creator is still under wraps but the
name was decided as far back as April
(perhaps we should all start planning
our trees in the spring?).
?Whatever you do, do it with gusto,?
advises Goad. ?There is nothing worse
than a sad, slightly bare tree. Never be
shy on the lights, and make sure you
position them deep in the branches to
give a sense of perspective.?
If you thought the buck stopped with
the tree, you?d be wrong. Uniformity
matters when it comes to gift wrapping
the presents under it, too. Alex Eagle
steers clear of gaudy. ?Ask everyone to
wrap in recycled brown paper, and each
pick a different coloured ribbon; with a
mound of matching parcels the effect
is beautiful and tidy and doesn?t distract
from the tree.?

on the streets of

Through
the eyes of
the world
From jeans to jackets and
dresses, this season?s Levi?s�
Made & Crafted� collection has
a distinctly international look
N
othing signifies that off-duty feeling
more than a great pair of classic Levi?s
jeans. This winter, the heritage brand?s
Made & Crafted premium offshoot is
inspired by the nomadic lifestyle more and more of
us are taking on. The line?s approach is modern with
sophisticated expression that sees future classics
created through premium construction to result in
progressive silhouettes that retain a sense of ease.
Why stay still when you can explore?
The collection centres around the perfect denim
? whether it be worn in vintage-fit jeans or a crimson
red and denim jacket combination. There?s the
familiar ease of subtle style that has long been
explored in the 140-year-old brand?s DNA. A loosefit flared pair are the new way to wear, while a pleated
shirt dress ? worn open ? does take the classic into
the avant-garde, but never becomes unwearable.
American supermodel Lily Aldridge faces the
campaign, with Nicolle Arbour, global design
director of collections at Levi?s, labelling the
expectant mother the embodiment of the collection.
?She is natural, confident and classic with that
certain something special? much like Levi?s Made
& Crafted.?
It?s Aldridge?s life, which sees her travel often,
that provides the nuanced fit with this collection,
as well as her personal style. There?s the laid-back
authentic white T-shirt and jeans combination that
she wears particularly well, paired with items that
are intended to look as though she?s picked them
up on her travels.
The team?s research for the collection saw them
travel the expanse of the globe to compile the perfect
all-encompassing collection of easy-wear effortless
items. The Levi?s Made & Crafted designers went
from Thailand to the Aran Islands of Ireland to
source unique pairings and embroideries to meet
with the Levi?s signature.
The result? A collection that remains distinctly
true to Levi?s unshakeable classics, while still keeping
an eye on the world.

VIEWPOINT
RID BARMAN
T
he year we spent Christmas
in Nsukka I remember for its
tameness. At mass the church
was half empty. Lunch was just
us: myself, my parents and my siblings.
We had rice, of course, and a green salad
lathered in tangy sweet cream, and to
entertain ourselves my brothers and I
hung Christmas cards on a string across
our bedroom wall and then lay down,
slow and drowsy, to watch The Sound of
Music. It wasn?t boredom, but something
like it. Outside our home on Marguerite
Cartwright Avenue was that echoing
silence of emptiness, because almost
everyone else in our campus community
had gone back to their ancestral villages.
I was a child. I did not yet know the
teasing joke about Igbo people: ?Why
do Igbo people build huge houses in
ancestral villages where they spend only
two weeks a year?? I knew only that
Christmas, real Christmas, meant going
to Abba, our ancestral hometown where
my grandmother lived. We drove for
two hours on pot-holed roads busy with
rare traffic, car boots weighed down by
yams and drinks and clucking chickens
and bags of rice. Goats idled on the
backs of vans. Sly policemen stopped
cars and laughed and asked for
Christmas money. Strangers waved to
one another. Everything existed in an
expectant orbit. On the return trip, a
week or two later, the roads would be
busy still, but the festive air would be
spent, almost mournful, with cars
emptied of their Christmas richness.
In the early 1980s, barely dressed
village children ran after our cars as we
turned into the dirt road to Abba, waving
and shouting, ?Nno nu! Welcome!? To
again see our country home, a two-storey
rectangle of a house, with a red roof, and
metal railings running down the length
of the veranda upstairs, felt like a
beloved reacquaintance. My paternal
grandmother took us round to her
neighbours, to show off her grandchildren.

pride, chaperoning my brothers and me,

Nigeria will always hold the most magic
she said to each neighbour, ?These are
James?s children. They brought me gifts.?
The Christmas gifts were bags of rice,
crates of Coke, cartons of Star beer, a
slender roll of money. And a Christmas
outfit, because Christmas was nothing
without festive clothes for everyone. My
childhood Christmas dresses were
flouncy and full, pink or red, and I wore
them with lace-trimmed white socks to
mass on Christmas morning. It amused
my brothers and me that women sat
separately from men in the village church;
I sat with my mother and sisters across
the aisle from my father and brothers
and we made faces at each other. A
sternly pious catechist paraded the pews,
looking for those who might have fallen
asleep during the homily in order to
sharply smack them awake. Mass in
Nsukka was light and joyful. Here in the
village it felt sinister, a necessary >

ordeal, but it was bearable because our
Christmas began only when mass ended.
Back home, the house was alive.
Househelps and relatives blending
tomatoes and slicing onions, frying beef
over an open fire in the backyard. ?God
Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen? playing on
the radio. Someone had hung crooked
lines of glittery green and red decorations
on the dining-room wall. The smokiness
from our house and our neighbours?
houses ? the cooking and the frying and
the burning-off of goat hair ? mixed with
the Harmattan dust and coated the air
in a lavender haze. Here, family was a
more expansive concept ? uncles and
aunts, cousins and some relatives we did
not know. Those relatives arrived and
hugged us children and asked, ?Do you
know me? Have you greeted me??
Sometimes they acted hurt. ?How come
you don?t know me? I am your father?s
uncle?s daughter?s child.?
Our compound gate was left ajar, the
front door wide open. Villagers wandered
in and sat down and waited to be served
because it was Christmas. Children came
in shyly and sat on the benches outside,
waiting for an adult to notice them and
?do Christmas? ? slip money into their
small hands. The more enterprising
children went from house to house and
had bulging pockets by day?s end.
My brothers and I ate lunch quickly,
with little ceremony: jollof rice and fried
meats and no salad because the village
didn?t lend itself to uncooked greens.
We ate upstairs with our cousins. From
downstairs came the laughter and
sounds of the grown-ups. An adult
relative supervised our meal and decided
who could have Green Sands shandy
instead of mere Coke. Afterwards we
had chin-chin or cake that a relative had
brought, usually a plain butter cake, and
sometimes fruitcake rich with raisins.
We itched to be free, to stand on the
road crowded with people in their
Christmas outfits, and watch the
masquerades pass by. And what was it
with plastic sunglasses? All the children
in the village wore them, very round or
very square, with brightly coloured
frames, and the little girls had hair
braided with too-shiny extensions so
outrageously fake that they were a
celebration in themselves.
In the evening, my mother?s brother
Uncle CY took us on a drive, past dusty
signboards ? ?St Paul?s Catholic Parish?,
?St Augustine?s Anglican Church? ?
coated in yellow-red dust. Everywhere
were crowds, people out and about,
festively dressed. Masquerades paraded
past and we squealed in delight at the
unusually ugly ones with snarling
wooden masks or the ones my uncle said
were dangerous and could turn you into
a snake. Commerce thrived. Little kiosks
had appeared on roadsides, with glass
cases displaying fried chicken, meat pies,
akara. Temporary glories, they would
disappear after Christmas.
The drive ended in Umunnachi, my
mother?s ancestral hometown, and we
were once again ensconced in family ?
my grandmother offering us her yam
and vegetable porridge, then fried fish,
then chin-chin; aunties hugging us,
marvelling at how much we had grown,
uncles slipping naira notes in our hands,
and all around there was what I
remember as a glow of goodwill.
Years later, as an adult spending
Christmas in Abba, I would long for this
openness, this innocence. It was the early
2000s. The world had hardened. The dirt
roads were now tarred. My grandmother
had died and her little house near ours
existed in shadows. We no longer left our
compound gate ajar and people no longer
wandered in. Abba?s population had
grown, and with it an anonymity that sat
alongside competition and desperation.
There were many modern, sharp-angled
buildings now and the wealthy man down
the road had peacocks on his property.
At church I watched elegant women
in gracefully high headgear and designer
sunglasses holding in one hand their
handbags and in the other the latest cell
phones whose functions they would never
use. Christmas lunch was quiet, siblings
were abroad with families, cousins had
died or were in Lagos or the north or
somewhere else, earning a living. I sat
at the table with my parents and uncle,
eating fried goat meat and mourning
the lost magic of childhood.

ON THE ROCKS
WITH A TWIST
With a stylish new design and endless sparkles,
Freixenet ICE Cava ? made to be enjoyed over
ice ? means that on the rocks just got better,
and just in time for the festive season.

is the season for all things
s p a rk l i n g, f ro m t h e
bejewelled accessorises
adorning our party attire
to the wine we?re sipping. But it?s also the
time to try shaking up some tried-andtasted traditions. Quite literally, we think.
Best served over ice, Freixenet ICE Cava
exudes vibrancy and versatility in every
bubble ? with notes of peach, ripened
pear, and hints of floral flavours and
tropical fruits. It has a creamy palate and
a refreshing finish. The blend of
traditional cava grapes with Chardonnay
takes on a touch of the Mediterranean if
you infuse it with a sprig of mint (and
embodies the brand?s ?on the rocks just
got better? mantra), or a festive twist when
stirred into a winter cocktail. And, better
yet, its updated snow-white design makes
the new bottle a particularly elegant
feature on the table. So, as party time
arrives, we?ll be enjoying a cooler version
of a classic this season. Just add ice.

THE QUEEN AT RICHARD QUINN?S SHOW
It was insane to see the Queen on the front row. I knew
someone important was coming, but I thought the rumours
of it being the Queen were a joke. It felt monumental because
she wasn?t attending one of the mega houses; it was Richard
Quinn?s first on-schedule show. It showed the importance
of championing emerging talent, and highlighted how
instrumental new designers are in paving the way for the
future. They?re doing things their own way. The show was
beautiful, mad and wild, and to have the Queen see something
that represents what I love about fashion was special.
ART DIRECTING MY BURBERRY
CAMPAIGN IN GHANA
I wanted to shoot my Burberry campaign in Ghana to show
people that there are so many different facets to Africa; there
is a booming economy, an exciting arts scene, there are women
who love fashion. But I didn?t understand the impact my Vogue
cover had there until I visited. I always felt a connection to
the country but I didn?t realise they had claimed me as their
own. Going to shoot in Ghana was my way of showing respect
to that part of me. And the outpouring of support was beautiful.
VIRGIL ABLOH?S DEBUT
AT LOUIS VUITTON
I livestreamed Virgil?s first show on my phone and it gave
me shivers. Part of it comes down to my having a black father
who has always worn amazing brands, but knowing that the
way those clothes are usually shown is so whitewashed. To
see the most handsome black men walking that runway in
these beautiful outfits was incredible. Plus, it was so chic. As
a mixed-race woman, I am used to being put in ?urban? looks,
but this offered a new perspective, designed and worn by
black men. I felt very proud ? for Virgil, for the boys in the
show, for my community. It felt like a new beginning.
DIVERSITY IN THE SEPTEMBER ISSUES
The September issue is renowned for being every fashion
magazine?s biggest of the year, and it was such a joy to see
incredible black women appear on covers across the world.
Growing up, I was so used to never seeing anyone who looked
like me that it didn?t really faze me. It?s only as I?ve grown
older, and started to see so many women who I look up to
and can identify with, that I?ve realised just how important
it is. In the past, it has been said that black women on covers
won?t sell copies. I?ve heard that coming from people I respect,
as if it were just a blas� statement of fact. It?s such a cop-out.
If this industry can sell trends ? can sell the idea of camel
coats or oversized sunglasses as the next big thing ? then
why can?t we put different women on the covers of magazines
and say that is cool, too? This September showed we can.
It was incredibly important.
SEEING DIFFERENT BODIES CELEBRATED
This year, I?ve become one of Revlon?s ambassadors, alongside
Ashley Graham, and it?s been amazing for us both to represent
different communities for a powerful beauty brand. And
watching Paloma [Elsesser] make such a mark in fashion has
been amazing ? as well as seeing the beautiful story starring
Tess McMillan in Vogue?s September issue. To see different
women not covered up or ignored, but appear as their whole
selves, has been brilliant. Now that the conversation has begun,
hopefully we?ll start to observe a major shift. Fashion is for
everyone. Whether you can afford it or not, you deserve to
see yourself represented within the pages of magazines. Q

Dressing
the turkey
Robin Muir looks back
at an illustration ? full
of festive cheer ? by
Manolo Blahnik, Vogue
December 1993
I
n 1917, exotic-dancer-turned-spy Mata Hari faced the
firing squad with not only equanimity but a wardrobe
supplied especially for the occasion by the House of Creed.
Here, Vogue?s bright-eyed Christmas turkey takes a leaf
out of her playbook, to face its own destiny in a pair of highly
individual mules illustrated by shoe designer Manolo Blahnik.
Blahnik, from the Canary Islands, had been in Vogue since
the early 1970s ? ?The sole of perfection,? murmured editor
Beatrix Miller, when her young fashion team rushed in with
his early, exquisite designs. Stylish and dapper himself, Blahnik
was photographed with Anjelica Huston for the January 1974
cover of the magazine (up until then, he was only the third
man to appear on it).
The year before, the designer had opened his first boutique,
on Old Church Street in Chelsea, and in f locked the
fashionable: Paloma Picasso, Jane Birkin, Charlotte Rampling,
Marisa Berenson? all in thrall to his originality and lightness
of touch. In the era of the ponderous and clumpy, his finely
turned heels turned heads; effortlessly, eternally beautiful.
Blahnik?s own illustrations have often served as his best
advertisements. In 1979, however, he charmed Cecil Beaton,
at the end of his career, to make drawings for him. ?He drew
15 shoes and they were the most beautiful drawings I have
ever seen,? said Blahnik. This was the last paid commission
Beaton undertook. How neatly two Vogue heroes, one ascending,
one bowing out, briefly found their destinies intertwined. Q
?He drew 15 shoes
and they were the
most beautiful
drawings I have
ever seen,?
Blahnik said of
Beaton?s work

IAMDDB
Following a heart-wrenching breakup, at 19 years old Diana Debrito (aka
IAMDDB) moved from Manchester
to Angola to play in jazz clubs with her
musician father before realising, ?If I
can do this in Africa, I can do triple the
amount in England.? Returning home
determined to pioneer a genre she terms
?urban jazz? ? a swirling hybrid of
traditional Kilapanga with trap beats
? she quickly found fame for her
combination of hypnotic melodies with
rap braggadocio, crafted in-between
shifts at Wetherspoons and River Island.
In the two years since releasing her
debut EP, Hoodrich, she?s traded in the
day jobs for critical acclaim, to model
for Tommy Hilfiger, and to support
Lauryn Hill on her upcoming tour. ?But
I just want people to be able to relate to
my music,? she says. ? Whatever
experiences they?ve had, no matter
whether they?re trapping, high or
homeless, I just want to spark something
good in them.?

PEGGY GOU
As far as DJs go, Peggy Gou is
remarkably prolific: in 2017, she played
nearly 200 live shows ? ?and even more
this year?, she grins. ?Sometimes I get
to airport immigration and I can?t even
remember what country I?ve come
from.? Her unrelenting drive is what
kept her afloat when she moved alone
to London aged 14 (?I went to every
club from Oxford Street to east London
to Elephant & Castle?), and later what
propelled her to achieve her first musical
goal: to be the first Korean woman to
play at underground mecca Berghain
(?If you know what Berghain is, you?ll
know why,? she laughs). While she?s now
based in Berlin, her energetic sets ?
which blend dark house, searing acid
and techno beats ? have seen her earn
global renown, and she?s determined to
keep pushing forward, with plans
to launch her own record label
championing Korean talent later this
year. You might wonder when she gets
time to sleep ? but, ?I want to be out
there, seeing people, connecting with
crowds,? she explains. Crowds across the
world will be relieved to hear it.

GRANDMA
Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth
first met at their Norwich primary school
? Jenny was drawing a dolphin; Rosa was
impressed by its well-formed fin ? and
they have been making music together
and finishing each other?s sentences ever
since. Now aged 19, and with two records
under their belts, their psychedeliainfused sludge pop has drawn widespread
recognition: it?s in possession of all the
charm of youthful experimentation (a
recorder features heavily on their first
album; the second lyrically interrogates
teenage stereotypes), coupled with an
astonishing maturity of sound. Initially,
their preternatural talent drew criticism
that it wasn?t them writing their music,
that they were simply the charming faces
of meticulously manufactured indie; later,
that their success had been earned in spite
of their age. ?That?s the one that really
gets me,? says Rosa. ?It?s because we?re
two young girls that we?ve written these
songs.? In fact, there?s no way that this
music, with all its sugary melodies,
wonderfully weird imagery and trippy
turns of phrase, could come from
anywhere else.

JORJA SMITH
At 21 years old, Jorja Smith has quickly
found herself labelled the sound of a
generation, and her melodic R&B ?
which explores everything from teenage
heartbreak to modern politics ? has
earned her a Mercury nomination, the
Brit Awards Critics? Choice and
collaborators from Kendrick Lamar to
Drake in rapid succession. It is an
impressive series of accolades ? and her
ascent has been steep. Having watched
her hometown of Walsall collapse under
the weight of the recession, in 2016 she
uploaded ?Blue Lights? ? a soulful
reflection of its streets ? to Soundcloud
and swiftly found a manager, moved to
her auntie and uncle?s spare room in
Penge, and got a job in Starbucks to fund
time in recording studios. The rest, it
seems, is history. Although, ?I don?t really
think about my career; I just want to write
songs to feel, to get things off my chest,?
she says plainly. ?But I guess that, when
people listen to my music, sometimes
they feel something, too.?

NATASHA MANN
192
While the visible face of the music
industry might be changing, its trajectory
will remain limited until there is a shift
behind the scenes. Enter Natasha Mann,
the 37-year-old co-managing director of
Island Records: the first female MD in
its nearly 60-year history and the first
woman of colour to hold the position.
Having worked with artists from Florence
& The Machine to Drake and Mumford
& Sons, founded a Women In Music
community and mentorship scheme to
support young talent, and proven that
mothering a toddler can be of direct
benefit to her working life (?you just
become so efficient; my ability to cut
through the crap has gone to the next
level?), she is paving the way for a new
generation of industry insiders. ?I?ve
realised that I?ve suddenly reached a level
where I can influence younger people
coming through,? she reflects. ?It?s
important that I remember that ? and
that I do something with it.?

TIWA SAVAGE
?In everything
I do ? whether
it?s using my
native language,
or an African
beat ? something
is going to let
you know that
I?m an African
woman?
Over the past year, Afrobeats music
has found international success ? and
Tiwa Savage has been at the forefront
of its explosion. Having moved from
Lagos to London aged 11, she got her
start by singing back-up for the likes of
George Michael and Blu Cantrell before
turning to songwriting in LA. Then, ?I
was in the studio with Babyface one day,
and he asked me about the rhythm and
beat of the music back home. Suddenly
I realised there was something
happening: that there were musicians
like D?banj and P-Square making
African music, but there were no females
doing it on the same level.? Against all
advice ? ?everyone was like, nobody is
gonna listen to African music? ? she
moved back to Nigeria where she honed
her own combination of R&B with
traditional sounds, which has now found
a global following from the diaspora and
beyond. ?In everything I do ? whether
it?s using my native language, or an
African beat ? something is going to let
you know that I?m an African woman,?
she says. ?That?s important to me, and
it?s important to my audience.?

NADINE SHAH
Nadine Shah?s first ventures into
music were as a jazz singer touring Pizza
Express restaurants across London ? but
the melancholic post-punk she has
evolved into recording couldn?t be
further from background music. Her
most recent album, the Mercurynominated Holiday Destination, offers
a darkly brooding state-of-the-nation
address exploring the likes of the refugee
crisis, post-Brexit British identity and
the racism that has been levied against
her (Shah is a second-generation
immigrant, of Pakistani and BritishNorwegian descent). ?I think the world
is the worst it?s ever been,? she says sadly.
?And we need more artists to talk about
politics because people aren?t speaking
out, they?re just letting it happen.? There
is a compelling defiance to her heartwrenching solemnity ? one that is both
musically, and politically, captivating.
Hers is modern-day protest music with
the mesmerising appeal of a profoundly
talented artist ? one who is determined
to provoke change.

MABEL MCVEY
Mabel McVey hails from nothing
short of a musical dynasty. The daughter
of Neneh Cherry and Cameron McVey,
she embarked on her first world tour at
six months old, grew up with legends
from Massive Attack to The Sugababes
strolling through her living room, and
had learned to navigate recording
equipment before hitting her teens. But
her solo career has been built solely on
musical merit: having started writing to
combat her paralysing pre-teen anxiety,
she has evolved into recording
?90s-tinged R&B with fans ranging
from Skepta to Harry Styles (she cut
her teeth as his support act on his 2018
tour). Unflinchingly honest, earnestly
positive and resolutely single-minded,
she seems set for success. After all, ?I?m
painfully ambitious,? she beams. ?I want
crazy things. I want to win Grammys;
to tour the world.? You get the feeling
she just might.

CLARA AMFO
Born and raised in London, Clara
Amfo embodies the brilliant eclecticism
of the capital?s music scene, playing
records from Migos to Savages, Pixies
to Drake on her Radio 1 show. ?I was a
bit of a conflicted teen because I loved
garage and R&B but also rock music,?
she explains. ?But now, with the rise of
the internet, it seems there?s less elitism
between genres ? in fact, there?s a
purposeful melding of them.? As the first
woman of colour to hold a daytime slot
on the station?s schedule, she has been
resolutely outspoken on issues from
diversity to natural hair ? topics that, in
2018, shouldn?t be an issue but remain
196
painfully pertinent. ?I?ll never forget that
when I was announced, one guy tweeted
?why don?t you fuck off back to 1Xtra???
she recalls, referring to her former radio
station, which specialises in playing
?urban music?. ?I remember thinking,
?that?s not even a country!?? What Amfo?s
success has proven is the irrelevance of
such detractors ? but she?s determined
to continue the conversation. While 2018
has been a particularly exciting year for
music, she explains that it remains vital
to ?uplift the voices that don?t get the
chance to be heard ? and to employ people
who are ready, willing and able to tell more
than one type of person?s story?.

MTV Awards nipple pasty and Beyonc�s

her upcoming documentary The Remix:
Hip Hop x Fashion, which explores the
influence that women have had on hiphop ? from Kool Herc?s sister?s role in
the genre?s inception (she staged the party
where her brother DJ-ed and was
credited its birth), to Lil? Kim?s
weaponised sexuality ? she is determined
to level the playing field. ?There have

I
Venetia wearing
an Alexandre de
Paris hair slide
first started wearing hair accessories in my early
twenties. I put clips and ribbons in my hair to keep it
all back because it?s always been quite unruly and has
a tendency to get big. When I was at Vogue the first
time around in the mid-1980s, I had this rockabilly quiff
that I would secure with a rhinestone barrette, and then in
the 1990s I went through a phase of wearing velvet flowers
in my hair, followed by a stint with a Dolce & Gabbana
marabou feather hair piece. Now, I like to twist the lengths >

into two low knots, either side of my head, and then secure
them in place with rhinestone clips (sometimes more than
two, I like to pile them up). For ponytails, it?s a velvet or
taffeta ribbon. I always have something in my hair ? it?s my
way of accessorising.
I wear very little make-up and my jewellery is non-existent,
apart from some small hoop earrings. No rings, no bracelets
? so that when I?m on set, there is nothing to get in the way
or catch on things. If I have something up in my hair, it?s just
a detail which I forget is even there. It?s funny how people
pierce so many holes in their ears to have more places for
jewellery, but they don?t use their hair more to embellish.
I can dress my hairstyles up or down depending on the day
and what I am wearing ? a classic slide in the day for work,
or something more ornate for the evenings. It?s easy.
At any given time, I could have around 20 hair accessories
on rotation. It?s in a constant state of flux. I am not
sentimental about them, so I don?t mind if I lose them. I
like the idea of someone else picking them up or finding
them. In fact, my niece [designer Sadie Williams] now
wears the velvet roses that I wore 25 years ago. I don?t know
when she got her hands on them, but I saw her recently
and they were at the back of her head. I love seeing them
on the runway, too: Simone Rocha, Dolce & Gabbana,
Faustine Steinmetz, they all do incredible pieces. I don?t tend
to use them in shoots very much. My shoots are not reflective
of my personal style ? I don?t project myself into the picture.
The way I work is much more cinematic, I imagine a scenario.
When it comes to brands, I have my favourites: Alexandre
de Paris ? I go to the store every time I am in Paris for
fashion week to pick up new pieces; VV Rouleaux to buy
lengths of silk taffeta or velvet ribbon to make into bows;
Chanel does some great camellias; and I really like the
Jennifer Behr and Alighieri hair pieces. But they can?t just
be pretty ? they have to be functional and not take half your
hair off with the hinge. Yes, some of them are expensive,
but they are investment pieces in the same way as any piece
of jewellery or an accessory might be. A hair accessory can
Q
dress up any hairstyle. It?s foolproof.

YOUR BEAUTY
ROUTINE
Rodial?s Booster Drops allow
you to customise your skincare
routine to your own speci?cations,
using high-grade ingredients
with the power to transform
your complexion
E
veryone?s skin has its own set
of needs, which is why it
makes sense to tailor our
skincare regimes to perfectly
meet them. And that?s where Rodial?s
Booster Drops come in ? allowing you
to customise your daily routine yourself
using its three targeted formulas.
The Glycolic Drops act as a retexturiser
with a 10 per cent concentration of
naturally derived glycolic acid which
renews and refreshes the complexion by
sloughing away dead skin cells to reveal
a more refined skin texture. Simply apply
two or three drops at night and wake up
with a smoother skin surface.
The Retinol Drops promote skin
repair and regeneration, using a 10 per
cent retinol complex to enhance collagen
production and transform your
complexion. Blended with hydrating oils,
the lightweight formula glides onto skin
and works while you sleep.
And for skin that?s looking a little
lacklustre, the 30 per cent collagen in the
Collagen Drops makes up for the
slowdown in collagen production that
comes with ageing; firming and hydrating
the complexion for a plumped-up,
youthful appearance. It can be used day
or night, on a daily basis, making it a
perfect complement to the other two
formulas in the collection. The ideal way
to custom-blend your own unique
skincare ritual yourself.

We?re oh
so tired
By the end of the year, we?re
exhausted and running on
empty. But, asks Georgia Day,
how can we avoid looking it?
B
eing tired is an inevitable side
effect of a busy life. Indeed,
research by Mintel shows that
one in three of us admits to
being permanently exhausted, while
studies by supplement brand Healthspan
reveal that 97 per cent of us claim to
feel tired all the time. But how can you
stop yourself looking as tired as you feel?
The most obvious consequence of
being TATT (the acronym doctors use
for tired all the time) is subpar skin; dark
circles and a grey, dehydrated complexion.
?Around a third of women who come to
me want to look less tired,? says facialist
Sarah Chapman. Like many skincare specialists, she believes
in the power of vitamin C, used topically and orally: ?It?s a
well-known brightening ingredient and a powerful antioxidant
for skin. Internally, it works to support the immune system,
increase iron absorption and reduce signs of tiredness.? As
well as being the star ingredient of Givenchy?s new anti-fatigue
range, you?ll find it in several of Chapman?s skincare formulas,
most notably the intensive, 10-day Radiance Recharge System.
Another advocate of fast-tracked facial restoration is FaceGym,
the ?skin workout? studio that uses facial massage to perk up
dull complexions. Its newest innovation, Skin IV, consists of
a vitamin, collagen, mineral and hyaluronic acid mixture that
is blasted with cold oxygen over the skin.
Dietary changes can help improve energy levels, as well as
how you look. ?Not a day goes by without me seeing someone
who has sub-optimal levels of vitamin B12,? says Dr Rangan
Chatterjee, GP and author. ?It?s critical for energy, but in pill
form relies on absorption in the gut, something that?s not
always easy to achieve with our rushed lives.? Try sucking on
B12 lozenges instead for absorption through the mouth. ?I
also advise my patients to think about when they eat,? he says.
Eating all meals within a 10- to 12-hour window will keep
night-time blood-sugar levels stable and sleep uninterrupted.
Aesthetic procedures could help, too. ?As you age,? reveals
Dr Sarah Tonks, an aesthetic physician based at the D Thomas
Clinic, Knightsbridge, ?you lose volume around cheekbones,
eyebrows and tear troughs. It?s these subtle cues that are
markers of tiredness.? The solution is a hyaluronic-acid filler,
but placement is key: ?You can?t just treat the hollow tear
trough itself, you need to treat the cheek area too to maintain
balance in the face.?
For a more temporary fatigue fix, delve into your make-up
bag. ?Just work with it,? declares Terry Barber, director of
make-up artistry at Mac Cosmetics. ?A tired eye can have
a cool slept-in smokiness if you just add a bit of dark
eyeshadow.? Quick, someone pass me the kohl.

ift giving in my line of work is surprisingly
problematic. While I would always defer to buying
a beauty-related gift irrespective of my job, when
I do, the recipient tends to assume that I?m
repurposing a product received through work. But the fact
is, I love to buy beauty because my know-how means I?m
expert at matching the perfect gift to each person.
For mothers, look no further than La Maison de Dior, a
home offering from the fashion and beauty house that
elevates at-home scenting to the next level. Think room
fragrances that are as good as any eau de parfum, the chicest
soap bars, linen fragrances? all presented within the kind
of boxes that you might expect to hold a handbag or a pair
of shoes (you may have to manage the recipient ?s
expectations!). Meanwhile, Jo Malone completely owns the
festive season, and this year its Bring on the Baubles ethereal
take on gifting is my choice for mothers-in-law, aunties
and other extended family. The customisable Ultimate
Cracker is beyond fabulous.
For sisters or nieces, try something more bespoke. Floral
Street, the disruptive British fragrance house, has come up
with a novel idea: pay upfront for a full-size perfume bottle
and your loved one will receive a Scent Exploration Kit, which
includes testers of all eight of its fragrances. They then redeem
the full-size bottle once they have chosen their desired scent.
Think candles are trad? Think again. Le Labo and No.22
can be personalised with the name of your host, while the
Diptyque carousel boasts pendants that rotate when heated
by the flame. Oh, and let?s not forget the greatest gift of all
? the gift to self. My favourites include Chanel?s Gabrielle
Toiletries set, and Fornasetti and Baobab Collection?s Murano
glass four-wick candles. There?s something for everyone. Q

Adut Akech
Born in a refugee camp, 18-year-old
South Sudanese-Australian model Adut
Akech is the face that?s leading the charge
on diversity and, in turn, making fashion
history. Months after graduating from high
school in Adelaide, she made her runway
debut walking in Saint Laurent?s s/s ?17
show. Next came the Pirelli Calendar
(styled by our very own editor-in-chief,
Edward Enninful), in which she starred
alongside Naomi Campbell ? with whom
she remains close ? and shows from
Prada to Chanel Couture followed. With
a career trajectory like that, there?s no
better retort to those who bullied her in
school. Beyond fashion, her ambition is to
build schools in Sudan. You get the feeling
that with Adut, nothing is impossible.

Primrose
Archer
It turns out that 18-year-old
Primrose Archer is less of a new
face and more of a veteran model:
she made her debut way back, aged
five, photographed by Tim Walker
for Vogue at her family farm in
Worcestershire. She wore an argyle
knit with wellington boots and
looked adorable. ?I was that
annoying, confident little girl trying
to get in the front of every shot,?
she recalls. Fighting for attention is
no doubt par for the course when
you?re the eighth of 10 children; she
has four brothers and five sisters.
Being in front of Meisel?s lens in
New York is a world away from
farm life, where her responsibilities
include feeding the chickens. ?I?m a
country girl at heart,? she says. ?But
I?ve always wanted to be in the city.
For all my siblings and friends it?s a
bit like, ?Marry a farmer, live on a
farm? ? but I want something
different. I want to make memories
and do fantastic things.?

Saffron Vadher
Until a few years ago, you would have
found Londoner Saffron Vadher behind
the cheese counter in the Waitrose of
John Lewis on Oxford Street. She loved
the job, eating cheese all day so she could
better advise customers on the perfect
cheddar. How life has changed for the
21-year-old Anglo-Indian model from
Harrow, who made her debut when she
landed a worldwide exclusive walking
in Burberry?s a/w ?17 show, and was
subsequently cast in Givenchy?s s/s ?18
campaign. She says she wants to use
her position to stand for something,
and admires Adwoa Aboah for how she
has created a platform. It?s no surprise
she has a fighting spirit ? she beat
leukaemia at the age of four.

G
iven the grand fa鏰de of this pristine Parisian
townhouse on a secluded street in the 16th
arrondissement, two things are immediately
surprising. One, that it?s the home of Lenny Kravitz
? because wouldn?t you better picture the rock star in a swanky,
modern glass penthouse as opposed to this, the former
residence of the mayor of Deauville, no less, with embassies
for neighbours? And two, that deep in the basement is a
boiler room, reached by a precarious stairwell and a warren
of dark corridors, transformed into a veritable speakeasy where
bottles of vintage Dom P閞ignon overburden shelves. The
elegant, butter-wouldn?t-melt exterior does not allude to that.
What started as ?somewhere to go for a smoke? is now a
dimly lit, clandestine late-night hang-out that smacks of
dusk-till-dawn nights. Decorated with an ad hoc arrangement
of film posters, bistro tables and chairs, and an
old dining table hidden behind a makeshift
screen, it?s a den that is completely at odds with
every other well-considered room in the house
? a house that operates a strict no-shoe policy,
?because, you know, we like to lie around on the
floor?? purrs Kravitz, looking suitably floorready this afternoon in Adidas trackpants and a
tight grey T-shirt. He is devastatingly handsome,
much more so in the flesh, most of which is writ
in tattoos. His locks look like they?re spun from
Loro Piana cashmere and his skin is so flawless
it?s as if he?s never had a late night in his life ? yet
parties here are frequent and impromptu.
Although he divides his time equally between
here and the Bahamas (where he resides in a
souped-up Airstream trailer), the French capital
has been his ?town? since his 1989 debut album,
Let Love Rule, earned him success in Europe
before America. ?When I started out, they didn?t
know what to do with me in the US,? he admits.
?My music was rooted in rock?n?roll and that wasn?t
what was happening with black artists at that
time. Everyone was into categories and putting
people in boxes. I looked how I looked and I
dressed the way I dressed and so they sent me to
Europe ? the Europeans will deal with it!?
He found this house 13 years ago, when, at the
end of a tour in Paris, he booked himself into the
Georges V hotel to look for his own apartment.
He was imagining something modest: one
bedroom but with a grand reception room.
Nothing piqued his interest until his estate agent
urged him to meet at this address. He arrived,
looked up, and asked which floor it was on. She
told him it was the entire building. ?I said, ?I am not going in
there,? but she insisted. I got as far as the hallway and thought,
?Oh, shit?? Right away I knew it was the place.?
He?s stumped when I ask how many bedrooms it has. ?Well,?
he reasons, ?they get used for different things?? His marbled
en-suite bathroom, for example, was amalgamated from three
rooms. ?Eight,? he settles on, as we head back upstairs to the
ground-floor reception room, where the ceiling goes up to the
heavens ? above us there?s a gargantuan Swarovski chandelier
by Kravitz Design, the interior and furniture design company
he founded in 2003. The room is an ode to his childhood
heroes, Muhammad Ali and James Brown, and a pair of each
of their boots sit on either end of the mantelpiece (some 25
other pairs of Brown?s boots are displayed in the moody,
mirror-ceilinged library across the hall), which is flanked by
two enormous faux elephant tusks designed by Pucci >

The French capital has been
rock star Lenny Kravitz?s ?town?
for almost 30 years, and a
conservative-looking townhouse
has been his home there for 13.
Just don?t be fooled by the
exterior, says Sarah Harris.

Richard Orlinski?s glossy red panther
sculpture prowls across a gold and ivory
lacquered Elisse coffee table by Gabriella
Crespi. ?That?s a museum piece. I can?t
remember where I got it, but it?s rare.?
What isn?t rare is the number of
museum pieces in every room ? there
are Warhols and pop culture artefacts,
and a huge Basquiat in the entrance hall,
across from the sweeping staircase. ?Lots
of his art came my way. I could have had
so many more and I just didn?t make the
move back in the day ? I know, I know.
Idiot! We weren?t friends, but I was
roommates with a guy he?d lived with.
His last girlfriend was best friends with
my girlfriend at the time, so when he died
we had one of the first calls. Anyway, I
have this one and I?m happy to have it.?
The son of Sy Kravitz, a white, Jewish
TV news producer, and Roxie Roker, a
Bahamian actress, both of whom died a
number of years ago, Kravitz was raised
between Manhattan?s elite Upper East
Side and his maternal grandmother?s
home in Brooklyn?s Bedford-Stuyvesant.
He moved to LA aged 11, when his
mother got a starring role in the sitcom
The Jeffersons. Despite his biography ? the
actress mother; the winner, from 1999
to 2002, of four consecutive Grammy
Awards for best male rock vocal
performance (no one has done it since);
and a string of high-profile relationships,
including with Vanessa Paradis, Nicole
Kidman and Naomi Campbell ? Kravitz
is bizarrely grounded. It?s something
he puts down to his upbringing and
watching his mother handle her own
fame. ?She didn?t drive a fancy car, we
didn?t have a housekeeper ? my mother
cleaned, and I had chores, too.? He talks
about being 14 years old, and how his

grandfather would wake him at 5am to
chop wood and bundle it before school,
and of another time, when his mother,
after instructing him to wash the dishes
and put them away, hauled him out of
bed at 3am just to close a kitchen cabinet
properly. ?Everything had to be done to
the nth degree. That gives you an idea of
what I grew up in, and thank God I did
because [otherwise] I wouldn?t be where
I am. That was all a part of my education.?
His own parenting skills are a lot less
rigid but no less attentive. He refers to
Zo� Kravitz, his 29-year-old actress/
singer/model daughter from his brief
marriage to The Cosby Show?s Lisa Bonet,
as his best friend. ?I?m so proud of her,
she?s killing it,? he smiles. She went to
live with him when she was 11 years old,
a responsibility that enforced some big
lifestyle changes. ?I had to straighten
up,? he says matter-of-factly, which
meant leaving his Miami apartment for
a family home in New York. ?Until then,
I was basically living in a nightclub. My
place was so good ? Prince came over
once and he was like, ?Oh, I see why you
don?t want to go out???
Did he support Zo�s decision to go
into the entertainment industry? ?I never
discouraged it. But I did not see it coming.
From the way she viewed me and my
life? She was not impressed with any of
it. She was always indifferent, she never
seemed excited by it.? I ask how he
handles her boyfriends. ?I always treat
them? with respect. I?m open and just
see what happens. I?m like: let?s see who
you are. Even when I have reservations,
I tend to hold on to them and let her
figure it out. The harder you try to push a
young woman away from a young man, >

the closer she will go to him by virtue of
rebellion. But she?s never brought anyone
bad, she?s got pretty good instincts.?
Kravitz has just released his 11th
album, Raise Vibration, which, finding
himself in a creative dry spell, took some
time in coming. ?I was just overthinking
it and that?s not how I work, I wait to be
inspired.? He relocated to his home in
the Bahamas and stopped trying. ?I didn?t
ever think that I wouldn?t write it, but I
just chilled out, sat in the middle of nature
and then I began waking up with songs
in my head, and that?s how it started.?
The 12-track album combines, as
usual, his signature retro rock?n?roll laced
with funk, blues and soul, and sees
Kravitz, a skilled instrumentalist, do
everything from writing to playing to
producing. The record runs the gamut
from political to sentimental ? the latter
best exemplified in ?Johnny Cash?, which
touches upon finding love and dealing
with loss. ?Writing a record is always
therapeutic, I?m releasing things that
need to be released. It might be about
something I went through with my
mother, or a deep song about my father.?
He recalls the day his mother asked
his father to leave, after discovering his
infidelity. ?I was about 19 years old and
my mother wanted to have a family
meeting before he left. She asked him
what he had to say to me. In her head,
I think she was expecting something
like, ?Son, I was wrong, I hope you learn
from this.? But instead of getting that
encouraging father/son thing, he got
right in my face and he goes, ?You?ll do
it, too.? And he walked out. That?s the
deepest shit in my life. His father did
the same, and he hated him for ruining
his mother and breaking her heart. The
perspective was like, ?You can?t avoid it
because I couldn?t.? It was heavy. Yeah,?
he pauses, ?I?m still working on that one.?
One would think, all things
considered, all things achieved, Kravitz
would start to slow. Hits such as ?Are
You Gonna Go My Way? are now
25 years old ? yet still haven?t lost any
lustre. Did he know he was writing the
soundtrack of a generation back then?
?Hell, no. I had absolutely no idea.? It
was created in just a few minutes, one
easy take. He wrote the lyrics on a paper
bag. ?It was raw, and it didn?t sound like
anything that was on the radio.? Is he
ever bored of hearing it or, worse still,
having to perform it? ?But you can?t not
do that one, there are a bunch that you
can?t not do. Some artists don?t play their
hits, and that?s cool, it?s an artistic thing
to do, but I remember going to some of
these concerts and not hearing the hits
that you heard growing up? so I try to
give people what they want. People work
hard and spend money to see your show
? they deserve to hear what they want.?
Kravitz?s tenure in this business runs
to 30 years, an eternity given the current
climate of high turnover of artists (he

????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
admits to not listening to a lot of new
music, but rates Jorja Smith and The
Internet). ?The record industry is so
different now, music has become very
disposable. It makes me sound ancient,
but you used to go to the record store
and it was a thing. You?d spend two hours
looking through bins and browsing
covers. You?d go home and invite friends
over to listen to it, you?d take it out the
sleeve, read the liner notes, then roll a
joint on the cover. It was a ritual, it took
effort to acquire it and to experience it,
you had to get out of your house and
take a subway ? it was a day.?
Forty million album sales later and he?s
still making records ? ?I still love music,
I burn for that? ? when he could be resting
on his laurels back in the Bahamas, or on
his farm in Brazil, where he grows organic
fruit and vegetables and keeps some 400
cows. Yes, really. ?They just graze. I don?t
kill them,? he emphasises. ?Eventually
I sell them on to the next guy and he
doesn?t kill them either, and then the
third guy who maybe milks them. But
at my place, they?re just chilling.?
The truth is that there are no signs
of slowing because he feels like he hasn?t
got to where he needs to be yet ? even
though, in addition to music, there?s
acting, design projects (hotels in Detroit
and Toronto, and a condominium
on New York?s Lower East Side are
currently underway), and he?s just
become creative director of Dom
P閞ignon, a gig that involves designing
champagne-centric furniture and
directing campaigns starring Susan
Sarandon and Alexander Wang. ?I feel
like I?m just beginning, 30 years was a
great experience, but I feel like whoever
it is that I?m supposed to be is still in
front of me; I feel like I haven?t done
what I?m supposed to do yet, honestly.
Something is going to change.? Does
he want more children? ?Yeah, I?d be
down. If it was the right person and the
right situation, yeah, I?m down. I still
feel really young.?
Word of advice to any future Mrs
Lenny Kravitz: don?t ask for a selfie. He
goes out by himself a lot in Paris, to
museums or just to walk, and is hard to
miss. ?I get recognised, but I try to keep
moving and make it more about saying
hello and making contact, rather than a
picture ? once that starts you can?t get to
where you?re going. I?m like, ?What about
a hello or a hug?? But they don?t want
that,? he shrugs. ?They want the proof
and showing and posting. They want the
likes. Why can?t it just be about the
moment?? Who would want a selfie when
there?s a hug on offer? Don?t take the
selfie. Take the hug. Let love rule.

M
annequins are scattered throughout the Roman
haute couture ateliers at Valentino like
characters in a game of charades. Around their
necks, name tags tell you who they would be
if they came to life: principessa this, sheikha that. A nearduplicate of the flamingo-pink moir� gown Adut Akech
wore to the Met Gala stands completed in a corner. A client
saw it and wanted one for herself. Pierpaolo Piccioli sneaks
in and takes a premi鑢e (head seamstress) by surprise with a
big hug. ?They don?t like it when I see the dresses before
they?re done,? he tells me, and proceeds to snap away cheekily
at the unfinished masterpieces on his iPhone. Valentino?s
creative director was a late Instagram bloomer, but boy did
he make up for lost time when he opened his personal account
in May. ?I don?t like it when people post landscape pictures,?
he says, unimpressed. ?It?s basic.? Instead, he uses his Stories
as a window to the day-to-day dreamwork of the couture
house he rules with a velvet glove.
?My lifestyle is not the classic lifestyle of a couturier,?
Piccioli reflects, as he lounges in a modernist chair at his
palatial office, the first of many Marlboro Golds in hand.
He interrupts himself. ?I hate the word lifestyle. It?s the
worst word of the last 10 years. It?s so stupid this word. For
me, the word is community. That?s about sharing values.?
He recurrently posts pictures of his team at work, namechecking each and every one of them. In January, he forewent
the traditional labelling of couture dresses according to Greek
goddesses in favour of the names of the petites mains who
created them: Annamaria, Rita, Rocco? For all the gilded
coffered Renaissance ceilings that hover so heavenly above
him in the building on Piazza Mignanelli, just off the Spanish
Steps, Piccioli is worlds away from the pedantic couturier
stereotype with a God complex.
?Craft is about people who give something. It?s not just
about the know-how. I always try to involve them in what
I see,? he says of his team, ?so they can put their own eyes
to it. I never say, ?I want this stitch half a millimetre shorter.?
That?s about ego. And I don?t think my ego is so big that I
need to control every stitch on every dress.? His June
collection was a wealth of wonderment scored by the might
of Maria Callas. A constant climax of enrapturing robes in
electric tangerine and Byzantine blue, or Greek myths
depicted in golden intarsias. It succeeded the breathtaking
creations from his already historic January show, immortalised
by Frances McDormand ? who Piccioli captured on
Instagram, post-Met Ball, grabbing a midnight snack from
the fridge in a princely emerald organza cape and a headpiece
plumed like a sea whip. It was a meeting between two worlds,
or simply a dream turned into very present-day reality.
?Valentino today has to be more inclusive. I want the
couture to be relevant for today. Not for old times,? he
asserts. Few could afford these dresses? five-digit price tags,
but that?s not Piccioli?s point. ?I don?t like to compare art
and fashion, but personally I don?t care about owning art.
I like to go to museums. I?m not obsessed with having it in
my house to show off. For me, couture doesn?t mean
exclusivity but eccentricity and individualism ? culture,
people and humanity ? and I want to get that into all the
other collections.? Slight in physique and softly spoken,
with a mahogany tan and a face that shows the indentations
of an infectiously frequent smile, Piccioli could > 298

FOR AERIN LAUDER, FOUNDER OF AN
EPONYMOUS LUXURY LIFESTYLE BRAND,
THE FAMILY?S MOUNTAIN HOME IN ASPEN IS
NOT JUST A PLACE TO SKI TOGETHER, IT?S
ALSO WHERE THEY UNWIND AND FIND NEW
INSPIRATION, SHE TELLS SARAH BROWN
I DIDN ?T START OFF LOVING SKIING. It was cold.
I was scared. My parents weren?t skiers. I broke my leg when I
was in first grade. We were in Vermont, which can get really
icy, and when I fell my ski did not come off as it should have.
I remember my mother decorated my crutches with bows.
So I didn?t fall in love with the sport as a child, but my
uncle Leonard kept pushing and pushing. Along with my
cousins, William and Gary, he encouraged me to try again,
not to be scared. My parents, sister and I would go skiing
with them in Vermont and, later, out west in Aspen. That?s
the active, sporty side of our family: my uncle did ?first tracks?
? on fresh, untouched powder ? until he was in his eighties!
He?s the one who got me back on my feet.
During college, my girlfriends and I would go out to Aspen
over spring break, and then, when I started dating my husband,
Eric, we began going on ski trips together, too. I have to say,
I love skiing in Europe. There is something special and
luxurious about the entire experience. Europeans do those
long lunches so well; typically more than one course ? pretzels,
raclette ? and presented beautifully, with tables set with
chequered napkins. And there are some amazing, amazing
hotels: Badrutt?s Palace in St Moritz, with those magical
feather beds; the Sporthotel Lor黱ser in Austria, with old
pictures of royal skiers hung on the walls. It?s tiny, but supercharming, with absolutely the most exquisite rooms. Very
old world, and exactly what you think it would be: wood
furniture with hearts cut out. Aspen was still the place we
loved most, though. It feels the most familiar, and I was

always happy to come back. So, after we got married and had
children, we bought a house there and made it a home for us.
Home for me reflects different aspects of my character and
facets of my life. My house on Long Island belonged to my
grandmother, Est閑 Lauder. She was a strong personality,
with such a definitive sense of style, that I do not want to touch
any of the things she left. The house is full of English antiques
mixed with her love of blue and white, and a lot of wicker.
My grandmother?s style was very comfortable. I love entertaining
with her pieces. When you go into our apartment in Manhattan,
it?s a very different feel. More French. I worked with Jacques
Grange around 20 years ago, and he decorated with beautiful
velvets that we have not changed since. I love when things
are lived in, when they have a story to them. It?s cosy.
But Aspen is the complete opposite. It?s modern and superminimal. Lots of white, tons of wood, and all windows. It?s
like a glass box. When we purchased it, I immediately fell in
love with the view. It reminded me of a Gursky photograph.
You look out at Ajax mountain (now called Aspen mountain)
as if you were in a treehouse. It?s really very peaceful to stay
there, and fun to go in all four seasons, as it looks very different
in August, when the wild flowers are in bloom, compared to
March or December. It?s magical. When we had our 10th
wedding anniversary, I bought Eric a beautiful wooden
Nakashima coffee table. We didn?t even have the place in
Aspen yet, but I said, ?If we ever have a mountain house,
that is where I would love to put this table.?
Each mountain has a different personality. There?s Ajax,
the main mountain, and Highlands, which has a wonderful
retro feel to it ? a little bit more traditional than Ajax, it
reminds me of old Aspen. And then there?s Buttermilk, which
is the perfect name for a beginner mountain. That?s where
you?ll find all the kids.
Skiing is something we naturally do together as a family.
I have two sporty boys who love to ski, and Eric, who does
everything sideways. Each year he does the Grand Traverse
? an overnight backcountry race where you ski from one town
to another ? which makes no sense to me. He loves extreme
skiing; he heli-skis, too. He?s great at it and he?s fearless.
Those old Slim Aarons photographs of red ski sweaters
with a great pair of stretchy black pants are very much my
style inspiration when I ski. There is a brand called Perfect
Moment that I think is very clever. A lot of its jackets, sweaters
and pants are influenced by vintage design, so it looks as if
you?ve stepped out of those classic pictures.
We ski in the winter months and in the spring, during
the boys? holiday from school, when it?s sunny and not too
cold. Each morning we wake up early for a big family meal
before everyone goes on their way. It?s a much heartier
breakfast than we would have in New York ? bacon, eggs,
sausages, muffins ? because we?ll be out on the slopes all
day. Sometimes I ski with my kids; sometimes I ski with an
instructor or a friend. We always meet up for lunch, and ski
together in the afternoon. We?re not social when we go to
Aspen. I just want to stay in, sit by the fire, watch a movie,
read a book and be with my kids. We make big bowls of
beautiful stews, delicious pastas, steak and potatoes. My
tabletop style is different, too. I love more rustic pieces, and
mountain colours ? lots of dark green, red, beige. We use
Gmundner dishes from Austria, hand-painted with a little
green stag. I love to mix-and-match serving bowls that might
not work perfectly with the plates ? but they do because
you?re in the mountains and it?s all a bit more casual ? and
pair them with the beautiful wooden serving pieces that I?ve
been collecting. And after being outside all day in the cold,
fresh air, I always sleep really well.
When we do go out, it?s to one of the restaurants that we
adore. For fondue and raclette there?s Cloud Nine in the
Highlands (the kids love it, so we always try to do that at least
once when we?re out there), or La Creperie du Village, which
is also great for goat?s cheese salads and incredible wine. MerryGo-Round has a wonderful, charming feel, with tons of vintage
pictures of Aspen from the 1950s and 1960s; and Ajax Tavern,
right at the base of the mountain, is always good for a classic
burger. Aspen has good food. It?s mountain food: nachos and
hamburgers, beer, hot chocolate and lots of margaritas.
I try to go for a long walk almost every day. I don?t listen to
music, I never talk on my phone. It clears my mind, and it?s
when I get my best ideas, many of which find their way into
my brand. We launched a beautiful home collection of picture
frames, coasters, jewellery boxes, trays and games in chocolate
brown shagreen; it?s earthy and inspired by the colour of a pine
cone. We have a fragrance called Amber Musk, which has this
warm, cosy sensibility, very much inspired by Aspen, and a
candle called Buckhorn, named after one of the famous runs.
It?s therapeutic to change gears, to be inspired, to be away,
to see something different. Aspen is where I actually stop.
It?s quiet. You?re on the chairlift, just looking. Whenever I
get up there and I look out at the Rockies, I am blown away
by their beauty, even though I?ve seen them many, many times
before. But every time, when it?s that perfect day, the sky is
blue, the snow is white, it takes my breath away.

F
or three days in July, fashion was all about Lake Como.
On the evening of the first day, its waters rippled and
glistened. A boat gently swayed. And, on board, fine
jewels in glass cases trembled and twinkled ? which
more or less describes Dolce & Gabbana?s excitable clients,
who, at that moment, were floating in jewellery heaven. Two
nights later, the house?s Alta Sartoria (menswear) show took
place in the lakeside Villa Carlotta ? now a museum, its marble
floors filled with Antonio Canova sculptures. And in-between
came the Alta Moda (its version of haute couture) show, for
which ? after a journey across the lake, dressed in extraordinary
finery selected from last season?s glamorama ? guests arrived
at the Parco Teresio Olivelli to be greeted by nuns (faux)
offering champagne (real). (Elsewhere, there was even a popup boutique on a boat ? a shop-till-you-drop side-bar ? filled
with house signatures such as patterned blouses and
magnificently decorated men?s blazers.)
Alta Moda was like an Italian version of A Midsummer
Night?s Dream ? ?We started with the 18th century, because
it was very romantic. Then we dreamed it all went completely
crazy,? was how Domenico Dolce described the duo?s vision
? in which Kitty Spencer (niece of Diana, Princess of Wales)
and Naomi Campbell, among others, modelled more than
100 enchanting looks, including quirky pageboy trousers and
epic gowns decorated with appliqu閐 pansies, glitter, vivid
colour, feathers and historic paintings of Como in its glory
days, when it was a meeting place for the beau monde, and
the German royal family came to visit from over the mountains.
Enough glamour for one evening? No! After another boat
ride ? this time to a historic villa, its fa鏰de illuminated by a
projection of flowers ? there was dinner under the stars. Then,
the crescendo! Like a mighty migration of birds, the couture
clients flew from their dinner tables into a vast room in the
villa, where clothes from the Alta Moda show were displayed.
The sense of hysteria was palpable: ?It?s a bargain!? ?It?s a
sale!? ?It?s just too gorgeous!? Changing-room cubicles,
divided by organza, were taken over by couples from America,
China, Japan, Russia and other far-flung locations encouraging
each other as they tried on the outfits, while back in the
showroom I watched women climbing into dresses, egged
on by male partners who were waiting for their own cashand-grab after the Alta Sartoria show the following night.
Could anyone be happier after stalking their prey and catching
it? You would have thought that these flamboyant outfits
and those jewels from the boat were being given away, not
sold for a fortune.
I asked around and was told that if a client wants to buy
a piece directly off the runway, a special ?treatment? is offered,
but if they?d like a bespoke piece, they pay full price. There
were no price tags, but the words ?around ?100,000? were
whispered in my ear as the daughter of an African potentate
slipped away to try on an evening gown. Naomi later told
me that her dress, exploding with colour and drama, was one
of the first to go.
Over the past six years, since Dolce & Gabbana launched
Alta Moda, these frenzied scenes have played out in fabled
Italian towns from Portofino to Palermo, and more recently
at international locations including New York. So how do
Domenico and Stefano seduce mighty, moneyed men and
women from across the globe? ?We cannot explain exactly
what we do,? says Domenico. ?It comes from our imagination.
We are totally free, sometimes it?s Como, sometimes London,
China, Japan? we mix everything.? ?We work with our
instincts,? adds Stefano, ?we don?t think too much about things.?
Domenico and Stefano have created ? probably with
more intelligence and perspiration than they admit ?
high fashion for our times: lush clothes without boundaries
of country or class. Clients rarely know each other
beforehand, although they may become friends when they
meet at the Dolce & Gabbana events each season. And
Google searches of the rare clients who give me their names
reveal biographies entirely about money-making careers.
Maybe that is why these three-day events are so enjoyable
? because there is no sense of competition or oneupmanship. Hey! We?re all Big Money people looking for
fun! ?To become part of the D&G family is something
that happens spontaneously. We love looking for them
and they look for us, too,? Domenico says of their couture
clients. ?A special feeling can be established, thanks to
shared passions and interests, and sometimes these
relationships turn into something deeper and long lasting.?
I believe Stefano when he says that friendship can be
involved. In his words, ?The
feeling of spending time
together is something
special, and if they ever want
to come to Italy we?d love to
host them ? it has already
happened a couple of times
and it was a real pleasure.?
The snooty couturier who
never saw their clients and
handed them over to their
head of studio is no more.
How have the pair grown
this part of their business
since giving up the lowerpriced, ready-to-wear D&G
collection in 2012? ?Some of
them are friends of existing
clients, others contact us after
seeing pictures on Instagram
or in magazines ? and then
we have our loyal clients who
buy something more special,?
Stefano says. ?There?s not
one way of finding new
clients; it can happen in so
many different ways. Between 2017 and the first half of 2018,
we?ve had our Alta Moda shows in Milan, New York, Mexico
City, Palermo, London, Como and twice in Tokyo. Each time
we have created new relationships.?
Could any other fashion designer follow this route? I doubt
it. Because behind Dolce & Gabbana is the finesse of Italian
workmanship, which shows up in every detail of the outfits,
whether it is a dress of hand-stitched flowers ? enough to
fill a royal park ? to a men?s pull-on top in glimmering gold
on green, with a crown to match. Backstage, I watched
seamstresses working with silk and lace to finish the outfits,
and imagined how many hand-workers must be involved in
just these two collections.
No doubt Dolce & Gabbana?s visits to Capri (2014), Naples
(2016), and Milan?s La Scala opera house (2017) were
considered a bonus by each city. Yet it is not enough to see
Dolce & Gabbana as just another smart business in the
Italian spirit. The duo invented an international high fashion
for our plutocratic times. Cue an explosion of fireworks
above, their colours reflected on Lake Como.

H
e arrives, of course, trailing a thin miasma of
weed fumes. ?All right,? says Zayn, holding out
his hand as he surveys his rain-lashed roof terrace
through a half squint. We are several storeys above
SoHo, Manhattan, in the penthouse where, for most of the
past year, pop?s handsomest prince has been holed up like a
gender-flipped 21st-century Rapunzel with a PlayStation,
supermodel girlfriend and a recently acquired hairless Sphynx
cat called Dobby. Why Dobby, I ask, as he pops open a
couple of bottles of Stella. ?Like the house elf,? he replies,
chuckling at his Harry Potter reference. ?We tried to make
him a little sock jumper but he won?t keep it on.?
Welcome to the wonderful ? if somewhat half-baked ?
world of Zayn Malik. Though, as per his instructions, I must
dutifully point out that it?s a simple ?Zayn? these days, ever
since the 25-year-old boyband survivor from Bradford with
perfect hair and poptastic falsetto dispensed with his surname
and went fully Cher. That was a year after he fled One
Direction, in March 2015, when the world?s most successful
group was at the hormone-addled apex of its fame. For a
brief moment, Zayn was the YouTube generation?s answer
to John Lennon (or Geri Halliwell, at least), devastating
millions of fans across the globe with his shotgun exit, then
thrilling them a year later with a record-breaking, Billboardtopping debut album. He moved to the States, clocked up
billions of streams, dueted with Taylor Swift, shot campaigns
for Versus and endured the peculiar menace of having a dozen
paparazzi camped outside his door every day. He also became
an international figurehead for biracial success and antiIslamophobia. And I mentioned the hair, right?
There is, however, another Zayn. ?I?m domestic,? he says,
dispatching his assistant to find some towels, because he
wants to hang out on his roof in thick New York drizzle with
only a fluoro-orange Air Jordan hoodie for protection. OK,
I think. Bit odd. But he loves the view and has a young
person?s pride in his fabulous property investment. As we sit
in the rain drinking lagers, it becomes apparent that beyond
the intense razzmatazz of his extraordinary facial symmetry
is a quiet, thoughtful twentysomething man from the north
of England, with flat Yorkshire vowels undiluted by fame.
?No? is still ?nurr?, his best friend is his cousin, he loves his
mum and, between visits to the recording studio, lives in
semi-isolation getting lightly buzzed and playing Fortnite.
Fashion week rages away in the city below, so his girlfriend
Gigi Hadid pops in between catwalk commitments to cuddle
and watch cooking programmes. ?Everything is great,? he
says of their relationship, which weathered a brief, if very
public, split and reconciliation earlier this year (side note: are
Instagram break-ups ever really break-ups?). His eyes
positively swim with love every time her name is mentioned.
?She?s super-organised and I?m really not,? he says gratefully
at one point. ?It helps that she can get things together for
me a little bit. I lean on her a lot.?
Yet so much of Zayn ? sensitive, talented, beautiful ?
remains a mystery; an unusual feat when you consider that,
thanks to five years in One Direction, his late-teenage life
ranks among the most scrutinised in history. There was
fallout, of course: anxiety, an eating disorder, as well as
low-level frustration whenever he is quizzed about his former
bandmates with whom relations remain? frosty. But as he
hits his quarter century, Zayn says that finally things are
changing. He hunches forward in his chair, and smiles.
?I feel like I?m in a good place,? he says, ?like I?ve grown up.
My energy tank is definitely slowing down a little bit.?
His imminent second album is a reflection of this. ?You
get a different perspective, which is cool,? he explains of
the secret tracklist he recorded with producers Saltwives
and the Hannides brothers. Guest stars include Nicki Minaj
and Timbaland, though the process has been a tad
meandering, as it includes excess gems from his first album,
Mind of Mine (he had ?60-something? tracks recorded for
that at the time), and a near-continual creation schedule
since. ?We were meant to be releasing around February,
March time, but a lot of it comes down to what promotion
I?m willing to do,? he says, like a naughty dauphin. ?It?s a
progression of my age, of my experience.?
The big news is that he?s finally in a place where he can
look back on his One Direction years without a mixture of
fury and panic. ?I?m able to look on it as something that was
an amazing experience, which I was never even able to say
until just recently,? he marvels. Why not? ?Because of so
much other bullshit that was going on.? What bullshit? ?Just
bullshit,? he shrugs. With the machine or with the band?
?Everything. I think back to the performances towards the
end, when we were in stadiums, I wasn?t really ever able to
enjoy the experience. The machine had gone too fast.?
Seriously though, what a machine. After being discovered
in the salad days of The X Factor, Zayn spent the first five
years of his adulthood packaged up like Shirley Temple in
urban-luxe sports casual. ?We went from theatres, to arenas,
to stadiums ? there was never any sort of bridge between.
Just boom, boom, boom. I guess that kind of progression
to any mind ? but especially when you?re 17, 18 ? it kind of
affects you a little bit. People take it different ways ?
especially when there are five different personalities. The
relationships,? he says flatly, ?had broken apart.?

Some nights he would be in Brazil or South Korea,
performing to 80,000 screaming teenagers, and feel nothing.
Or, if not nothing exactly, then a kind of profound numbness.
?There wasn?t really much there any more in terms of feeling
on stage, even with the other lads.? It sounds almost chilling,
actually. ?All that was missed out on, the actual feeling,? he
repeats. Have you had therapy? ?No therapy. Maybe some long
chats with the parents. I?m not into the whole idea of therapy.
I understand there?s a benefit to it, but for me personally
I don?t feel like I needed it.? He picks his words carefully.
?It was just an experience that I didn?t understand, that, over
time and being able to analyse it with my own brain and with
the people that were surrounding me ? my father, my mother,
my sisters, my girlfriend, her mum [he is very close to Gigi?s
mother Yolanda]? whoever it was ? I kind of got to a point
where I could understand what that was. It was cool.?
Depressingly, he says he came away from his five years in
One Direction without having made a single friend. ?Yeah,?
he shrugs, ?I have always been a bit like that, though ? always
a bit of an island. I don?t like to confer with too many people.?
Does he see any of the band still? ?Nah. I ain?t spoke to any
of them for a long time, to be honest with you. That?s just
the way it is. There?s things that happen and things that were
said after I left?? he pauses. ?Snide things. Small things that
I would never have expected.? It was no secret that even when
touring together, Zayn and Harry Styles had as little to do
with one another as possible, and though he was pally enough
with the rest of the boys, they are no longer in touch. The
love lost is minimal. ?That?s just the way it is. People move
on, people grow apart, people grow up.? (Cue the sound of
several million Directioners? dreams being crushed.)
His interests have matured as well. Because he was marketed
as ?the mysterious one?, Zayn is rarely given his due for
speaking out on tough subjects. Yet no other member of the
band has defined public discourse more than this Muslimraised British-Pakistani working-class boy from West
Yorkshire. If mental health is now an acceptable zone for
celebrity interviews, Zayn can take some of the credit. He?s
talked about eating disorders (movingly, he says it was about
being able to control one thing in the madness of the pop
years) and the occasionally crippling anxiety that means it is
only now that he can contemplate going on tour by himself.
His life has, in many ways, been a bellwether for modern
Britain. Raised by a dinner-lady mum, Trisha, who converted
to Islam, and stay-at-home dad, Yaser, he was eight the year
of the Bradford race riots in 2001. ?I did see the segregation,?
he says of his childhood. ?That was confusing for people,
they didn?t really understand. ?Who?s the brown person? Is
it your mum or is it your dad??? But he?s magnanimous. ?That
was nobody?s fault, other than learning these things.? He sees
the current chaos of the race debate as a process of mass
learning, and is optimistic. ?It?s natural. There are more mixedrace people around now.? If anything, he says he is as defined
by being raised in a domestic matriarchy, with five aunties
and three sisters, as well as Trisha. ?I am soft,? he says, proudly.
?I always felt that made a stronger man. My dad has always
been very supportive in that manner, too. He?s a huge guy,
he works out a lot, but he?s always like, ?You?ve got to express
your emotions. There?s no point in keeping shit to yourself.?
People used to not talk about emotion because they felt
a sense of shame, but I feel a sense of progression with it.?
Zayn is routinely touted as Britain?s most famous Muslim.
Does he count himself as especially religious? > 298

have been transported out of a Visconti
film, cigarettes in tow. ?People need
stereotypes to be recognised. I?ve never
been a clich� in fashion because I grew
up in a place that wasn?t the place for
a couturier,? he reminds me.
He still takes the train to Rome
from that place every morning: the
unassuming coastal town of Nettuno,
where he was born in 1967 and returned
some 20 years ago ? when his wife,
S imona Caggia, gave bir th to
Benedetta, now 21. Pietro, 19, and
Stella, 12, followed. Piccioli studied
fashion design and got a job at Fendi,
went to Valentino in 1999 and was
made creative director, alongside Maria
Grazia Chiuri, in 2008 ? a year after
Valentino Garavani (the house?s
86-year-old founder, who still attends
his shows) left the company. In 2016,
Chiuri set sail for Dior and left Piccioli
the house all to himself. The year after,
the Qatari-owned brand surpassed one
billion euros in turnover. He says going
it alone changed his creative process
entirely. ?You don?t discuss. You don?t
confront each other. It?s about you.
You don?t have to arrive at a reason why.
You can do something just because you
feel it. It?s much more intense in a way
because you can go deeper.?
It?s a blissful solitude he has always
known. ?When you?re a kid in a place
that doesn?t correspond to you, you grow
up alone. At design school in Rome, I
thought I?d be part of a group of people.
But I wasn?t from a dynastic family of
designers like the others. I was
commuting by train. They were living
in the centre of Rome. My friends from
Nettuno studied literature, engineering
? more clever things than fashion ? so
with them I was the fancy one. With
my friends from design school I was
the intellectual, because I was studying
literature, too. I was rich to my friends
from Nettuno, because I was going to
private school, but to the guys at private
school I was the poorest. To my gay
friends I was the one with the girlfriend.
To my friends from university I was the
one going to the gay school,? Piccioli
pauses. ?So you feel like you?re in your
own place, which doesn?t belong to
anyone else. And in the end it becomes
a strength because you have to learn to
think on your own.?
That kind of thinking has made
Piccioli popular with millennials, who
are Instagramming his mind-blowing
couture creations like they were
streetwear. ?In a way it?s very modern.
It?s extreme limited edition,? he reflects
with a sassy half shrug. In a time when
every fashion house is vying for the
298
attention of the young and enlightened
generations, Piccioli waives the
interference of marketeers when it
comes to ready-to-wear collections,
choosing instead to listen to the
youngest members on his team as well
as his three children, who are less than
smitten with fashion. (Benedetta studies
literature, Pietro wants to be a sports
journalist, and Stella is still at school.)
?I don?t think millennials are so
comprehensible that you can predict
their reactions. They understand what?s
authentic and what?s not, what?s made
for them and what?s more fluid. I try
to hear what they have to say.?
Above all, his connection with the
identity-focused and defiant values of
the new youth lies in the conviction
that fashion has the power to change
our outlooks. ?It?s not enough just to
make clothes. You have to deliver a
point of view.? When, in 2016, on the
day Donald Trump won the American
election, I joined Piccioli on a trip to
Moscow ? then a city still high on the
new president ?s charm offensive
towards Vladimir Putin ? he turned up
wearing a ?Fuck Donald Trump? slogan
cap. ?At the end of the day I feel like
the presidency of this man gave people
an awareness. I saw a lot of people
standing up for their rights,? he reflects.
When the date of the Valentino show
in Paris prohibited him from voting in
the Italian election in March, in which
anti-immigration had become the
overriding debate, Piccioli says he cast
his vote through action instead. ?I felt
like having 20 black models in the
show, that being a Roman brand
represented by black beauties, was
louder than just voting. It was going
against the stupid xenophobia.?
From day one at Valentino, he has
freely integrated codes from global
cultures and subcultures into his
collections ? from ballgowns to trainers
and everything in-between ? staying
true to his belief that mankind can coexist and still preserve our cultural
identities. ?It?s not appropriation. It?s
facing your times,? he says. ?I feel
respectful, so I don?t really think about
it.? What transpires through the global
community Piccioli has created at
Valentino is an uncompromising sense
of values. ?It?s important to me to be
exactly like you feel. Even if people don?t
understand it. I don?t want to stay in a
safe category. I want to live and deliver
what I feel in every moment,? he tells
me. ?Sometimes it?s easier to stay in a
field where people recognise you, but
that?s not freedom. Freedom is about
going where you want to go.?
Q
?To be honest, I?ve never spoken publicly
about what my religious beliefs are. I?m
not professed to be a Muslim.? Would
he call himself a Muslim now? ?No,
I wouldn?t,? he says thoughtfully.
?I believe whatever people?s religious
beliefs are is between them and whoever
or whatever they?re practising. For me,
I have a spiritual belief of there is a god.
Do I believe there?s a hell? No.?
He worries that even discussing faith
?becomes a religious fucking debacle
of philosophers. I just want to keep it
between me and whatever I believe.
I feel like that makes me move through
life in a nice way. If I behave well,
I will get treated well. That?s it. I don?t
believe you need to eat a certain meat
that?s been prayed over a certain way,
I don?t believe you need to read a prayer
in a certain language five times a day.
I don?t believe any of it. I just believe
if you?re a good person everything is
going to go right for you.? Was it easy
to drop his religion, with his family?
?Really easy for me,? he says, nodding.
?With my mum and dad, they were
always there to educate us ? I did go
to mosque, I did study Islam ? but they
gave us the option so you could choose
for yourself.? But he?s glad of his
childhood years at the mosque.
?There?s definitely beautiful parts to
every religion,? he says, pleased to have
built his life around the tenets of Islam.
These sentiments might sound
pretty punchy, but he is speaking softly
and kindly. He?s smart ? certainly
smarter than your average uni student
on spliff number two, which makes
sense. That was, in many ways, his
fate. He was in his first year of A levels
when One Direction came calling,
studying English, which he still
adores. ?I did well. I got an A in my
first year,? he says, touchingly proud.
He keeps saying he?ll go back to study
and was ?recently looking up courses?.
He seems more like an undergrad than
an internationally swooned-over
famous person. Though his small talk
is a giveaway. ?She was travelling
around in a suitcase,? he says, eyes
agog, of his pal Taylor Swift?s ability
to avoid the paparazzi.
Yet he still wonders what life would
have been like had his mother not
shaken him awake at 4am for that
X Factor audition. ?It definitely wasn?t
anything like this. I had kind of an idea
I wanted to be a teacher,? he says, and
doesn?t sound like he hates the idea.
Instead he smiles, the eyes that broke
a million hearts narrowing in thought
as he sits quietly in the New York rain,
imagining what might have been. Q

BEST IN CLASS
Professional, sincere and steeped in local knowledge, the team at Best Gapp in Belgravia has been providing
unrivalled independent property services to residential and commercial clients since 1900
O
n the eve of the 20th
century, Mr Best,
a builder, and Mr
Gapp, a funeral director, joined
forces and opened an estate
agency in a prominent corner
building at No.1 Sloane Square.
More than 12 decades later,
their eponymous company which moved to its current
premises at 81 Elizabeth Street
in the 1950s - has established
itself as a leading boutique
property operation prized for
discretion, expertise and
multi-disciplinary services.
If you want advice on
residential or commercial sales
and lettings, or an expert to act

of leasehold enfranchisement,

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT, Properties for sale or recently sold by
Best Gapp in Eaton Square, Eaton Place, Montrose Place, and Cliveden Place
the Grosvenor Estate.
?A tremendous sense of
heritage, continuity and
in-depth local knowledge are
benefits of a long-standing
business, but we?ve evolved,
adding various divisions and
disciplines,? says Giles Cook,
Partner (Designate) and Head of
Residential. ?We?ve never
expanded into multiple offices
because we want to retain that
niche, personalised way of
operating to be as professional
as possible in offering a high
level of independent service in
all aspects to our clients.?
Cook assesses the market as
?fairly active? in the areas Best
Gapp covers: Belgravia,
Mayfair, Knightsbridge,
Chelsea, South Kensington,
Pimlico, Victoria and
Westminster. ?As an investment
opportunity, London is still very
attractive,? says Cook. ?The PCL
market has gone through a price
realignment to factor in the
numerous government tax
reforms, and we are now seeing
exciting transactions at the
higher end of the market (�m
plus). People are getting on with
life. For the overseas market,
London is still considered a
safe haven and somewhere
people want to live, educate
their children and run their
businesses from.?

What?s the best present to give a host?
Never flowers, a candle or wine. So clich�.
I like to give a plant or an engraved silver

What?s the best way to navigate getting older?
Not to think about it ? and ask the papers to
stop printing your age after your name.

would you do?
Insist that all children leave their phones

Advice on love, life and fashion from the actor and author
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
from the Alta Moda show were displayed.
The sense of hysteria was palpable: ?It?s a bargain!? ?It?s a
sale!? ?It?s just too gorgeous!? Changing-room cubicles,
divided by organza, were taken over by couples from America,
China, Japan, Russia and other far-flung locations encouraging
each other as they tried on the outfits, while back in the
showroom I watched women climbing into dresses, egged
on by male partners who were waiting for their own cashand-grab after the Alta Sartoria show the following night.
Could anyone be happier after stalking their prey and catching
it? You would have thought that these flamboyant outfits
and those jewels from the boat were being given away, not
sold for a fortune.
I asked around and was told that if a client wants to buy
a piece directly off the runway, a special ?treatment? is offered,
but if they?d like a bespoke piece, they pay full price. There
were no price tags, but the words ?around ?100,000? were
whispered in my ear as the daughter of an African potentate
slipped away to try on an evening gown. Naomi later told
me that her dress, exploding with colour and drama, was one
of the first to go.
Over the past six years, since Dolce & Gabbana launched
Alta Moda, these frenzied scenes have played out in fabled
Italian towns from Portofino to Palermo, and more recently
at international locations including New York. So how do
Domenico and Stefano seduce mighty, moneyed men and
women from across the globe? ?We cannot explain exactly
what we do,? says Domenico. ?It comes from our imagination.
We are totally free, sometimes it?s Como, sometimes London,
China, Japan? we mix everything.? ?We work with our
instincts,? adds Stefano, ?we don?t think too much about things.?
Domenico and Stefano have created ? probably with
more intelligence and perspiration than they admit ?
high fashion for our times: lush clothes without boundaries
of country or class. Clients rarely know each other
beforehand, although they may become friends when they
meet at the Dolce & Gabbana events each season. And
Google searches of the rare clients who give me their names
reveal biographies entirely about money-making careers.
Maybe that is why these three-day events are so enjoyable
? because there is no sense of competition or oneupmanship. Hey! We?re all Big Money people looking for
fun! ?To become part of the D&G family is something
that happens spontaneously. We love looking for them
and they look for us, too,? Domenico says of their couture
clients. ?A special feeling can be established, thanks to
shared passions and interests, and sometimes these
relationships turn into something deeper and long lasting.?
I believe Stefano when he says that friendship can be
involved. In his words, ?The
feeling of spending time
together is something
special, and if they ever want
to come to Italy we?d love to
host them ? it has already
happened a couple of times
and it was a real pleasure.?
The snooty couturier who
never saw their clients and
handed them over to their
head of studio is no more.
How have the pair grown
this part of their business
since giving up the lowerpriced, ready-to-wear D&G
collection in 2012? ?Some of
them are friends of existing
clients, others contact us after
seeing pictures on Instagram
or in magazines ? and then
we have our loyal clients who
buy something more special,?
Stefano says. ?There?s not
one way of finding new
clients; it can happen in so
many different ways. Between 2017 and the first half of 2018,
we?ve had our Alta Moda shows in Milan, New York, Mexico
City, Palermo, London, Como and twice in Tokyo. Each time
we have created new relationships.?
Could any other fashion designer follow this route? I doubt
it. Because behind Dolce & Gabbana is the finesse of Italian
workmanship, which shows up in every detail of the outfits,
whether it is a dress of hand-stitched flowers ? enough to
fill a royal park ? to a men?s pull-on top in glimmering gold
on green, with a crown to match. Backstage, I watched
seamstresses working with silk and lace to finish the outfits,
and imagined how many hand-workers must be involved in
just these two collections.
No doubt Dolce & Gabbana?s visits to Capri (2014), Naples
(2016), and Milan?s La Scala opera house (2017) were
considered a bonus by each city. Yet it is not enough to see
Dolce & Gabbana as just another smart business in the
Italian spirit. The duo invented an international high fashion
for our plutocratic times. Cue an explosion of fireworks
above, their colours reflected on Lake Como.

H
e arrives, of course, trailing a thin miasma of
weed fumes. ?All right,? says Zayn, holding out
his hand as he surveys his rain-lashed roof terrace
through a half squint. We are several storeys above
SoHo, Manhattan, in the penthouse where, for most of the
past year, pop?s handsomest prince has been holed up like a
gender-flipped 21st-century Rapunzel with a PlayStation,
supermodel girlfriend and a recently acquired hairless Sphynx
cat called Dobby. Why Dobby, I ask, as he pops open a
couple of bottles of Stella. ?Like the house elf,? he replies,
chuckling at his Harry Potter reference. ?We tried to make
him a little sock jumper but he won?t keep it on.?
Welcome to the wonderful ? if somewhat half-baked ?
world of Zayn Malik. Though, as per his instructions, I must
dutifully point out that it?s a simple ?Zayn? these days, ever
since the 25-year-old boyband survivor from Bradford with
perfect hair and poptastic falsetto dispensed with his surname
and went fully Cher. That was a year after he fled One
Direction, in March 2015, when the world?s most successful
group was at the hormone-addled apex of its fame. For a
brief moment, Zayn was the YouTube generation?s answer
to John Lennon (or Geri Halliwell, at least), devastating
millions of fans across the globe with his shotgun exit, then
thrilling them a year later with a record-breaking, Billboardtopping debut album. He moved to the States, clocked up
billions of streams, dueted with Taylor Swift, shot campaigns
for Versus and endured the peculiar menace of having a dozen
paparazzi camped outside his door every day. He also became
an international figurehead for biracial success and antiIslamophobia. And I mentioned the hair, right?
There is, however, another Zayn. ?I?m domestic,? he says,
dispatching his assistant to find some towels, because he
wants to hang out on his roof in thick New York drizzle with
only a fluoro-orange Air Jordan hoodie for protection. OK,
I think. Bit odd. But he loves the view and has a young
person?s pride in his fabulous property investment. As we sit
in the rain drinking lagers, it becomes apparent that beyond
the intense razzmatazz of his extraordinary facial symmetry
is a quiet, thoughtful twentysomething man from the north
of England, with flat Yorkshire vowels undiluted by fame.
?No? is still ?nurr?, his best friend is his cousin, he loves his
mum and, between visits to the recording studio, lives in
semi-isolation getting lightly buzzed and playing Fortnite.
Fashion week rages away in the city below, so his girlfriend
Gigi Hadid pops in between catwalk commitments to cuddle
and watch cooking programmes. ?Everything is great,? he
says of their relationship, which weathered a brief, if very
public, split and reconciliation earlier this year (side note: are
Instagram break-ups ever really break-ups?). His eyes
positively swim with love every time her name is mentioned.
?She?s super-organised and I?m really not,? he says gratefully
at one point. ?It helps that she can get things together for
me a little bit. I lean on her a lot.?
Yet so much of Zayn ? sensitive, talented, beautiful ?
remains a mystery; an unusual feat when you consider that,
thanks to five years in One Direction, his late-teenage life
ranks among the most scrutinised in history. There was
fallout, of course: anxiety, an eating disorder, as well as
low-level frustration whenever he is quizzed about his former
bandmates with whom relations remain? frosty. But as he
hits his quarter century, Zayn says that finally things are
changing. He hunches forward in his chair, and smiles.
?I feel like I?m in a good place,? he says, ?like I?ve grown up.
My energy tank is definitely slowing down a little bit.?
His imminent second album is a reflection of this. ?You
get a different perspective, which is cool,? he explains of
the secret tracklist he recorded with producers Saltwives
and the Hannides brothers. Guest stars include Nicki Minaj
and Timbaland, though the process has been a tad
meandering, as it includes excess gems from his first album,
Mind of Mine (he had ?60-something? tracks recorded for
that at the time), and a near-continual creation schedule
since. ?We were meant to be releasing around February,
March time, but a lot of it comes down to what promotion
I?m willing to do,? he says, like a naughty dauphin. ?It?s a
progression of my age, of my experience.?
The big news is that he?s finally in a place where he can
look back on his One Direction years without a mixture of
fury and panic. ?I?m able to look on it as something that was
an amazing experience, which I was never even able to say
until just recently,? he marvels. Why not? ?Because of so
much other bullshit that was going on.? What bullshit? ?Just
bullshit,? he shrugs. With the machine or with the band?
?Everything. I think back to the performances towards the
end, when we were in stadiums, I wasn?t really ever able to
enjoy the experience. The machine had gone too fast.?
Seriously though, what a machine. After being discovered
in the salad days of The X Factor, Zayn spent the first five
years of his adulthood packaged up like Shirley Temple in
urban-luxe sports casual. ?We went from theatres, to arenas,
to stadiums ? there was never any sort of bridge between.
Just boom, boom, boom. I guess that kind of progression
to any mind ? but especially when you?re 17, 18 ? it kind of
affects you a little bit. People take it different ways ?
especially when there are five different personalities. The
relationships,? he says flatly, ?had broken apart.?

Some nights he would be in Brazil or South Korea,
performing to 80,000 screaming teenagers, and feel nothing.
Or, if not nothing exactly, then a kind of profound numbness.
?There wasn?t really much there any more in terms of feeling
on stage, even with the other lads.? It sounds almost chilling,
actually. ?All that was missed out on, the actual feeling,? he
repeats. Have you had therapy? ?No therapy. Maybe some long
chats with the parents. I?m not into the whole idea of therapy.
I understand there?s a benefit to it, but for me personally
I don?t feel like I needed it.? He picks his words carefully.
?It was just an experience that I didn?t understand, that, over
time and being able to analyse it with my own brain and with
the people that were surrounding me ? my father, my mother,
my sisters, my girlfriend, her mum [he is very close to Gigi?s
mother Yolanda]? whoever it was ? I kind of got to a point
where I could understand what that was. It was cool.?
Depressingly, he says he came away from his five years in
One Direction without having made a single friend. ?Yeah,?
he shrugs, ?I have always been a bit like that, though ? always
a bit of an island. I don?t like to confer with too many people.?
Does he see any of the band still? ?Nah. I ain?t spoke to any
of them for a long time, to be honest with you. That?s just
the way it is. There?s things that happen and things that were
said after I left?? he pauses. ?Snide things. Small things that
I would never have expected.? It was no secret that even when
touring together, Zayn and Harry Styles had as little to do
with one another as possible, and though he was pally enough
with the rest of the boys, they are no longer in touch. The
love lost is minimal. ?That?s just the way it is. People move
on, people grow apart, people grow up.? (Cue the sound of
several million Directioners? dreams being crushed.)
His interests have matured as well. Because he was marketed
as ?the mysterious one?, Zayn is rarely given his due for
speaking out on tough subjects. Yet no other member of the
band has defined public discourse more than this Muslimraised British-Pakistani working-class boy from West
Yorkshire. If mental health is now an acceptable zone for
celebrity interviews, Zayn can take some of the credit. He?s
talked about eating disorders (movingly, he says it was about
being able to control one thing in the madness of the pop
years) and the occasionally crippling anxiety that means it is
only now that he can contemplate going on tour by himself.
His life has, in many ways, been a bellwether for modern
Britain. Raised by a dinner-lady mum, Trisha, who converted
to Islam, and stay-at-home dad, Yaser, he was eight the year
of the Bradford race riots in 2001. ?I did see the segregation,?
he says of his childhood. ?That was confusing for people,
they didn?t really understand. ?Who?s the brown person? Is
it your mum or is it your dad??? But he?s magnanimous. ?That
was nobody?s fault, other than learning these things.? He sees
the current chaos of the race debate as a process of mass
learning, and is optimistic. ?It?s natural. There are more mixedrace people around now.? If anything, he says he is as defined
by being raised in a domestic matriarchy, with five aunties
and three sisters, as well as Trisha. ?I am soft,? he says, proudly.
?I always felt that made a stronger man. My dad has always
been very supportive in that manner, too. He?s a huge guy,
he works out a lot, but he?s always like, ?You?ve got to express
your emotions. There?s no point in keeping shit to yourself.?
People used to not talk about emotion because they felt
a sense of shame, but I feel a sense of progression with it.?
Zayn is routinely touted as Britain?s most famous Muslim.
Does he count himself as especially religious? > 298

< 297 ZAYN MALIK
< 258 PIERPAOLO PICCIOLI
have been transported out of a Visconti
film, cigarettes in tow. ?People need
stereotypes to be recognised. I?ve never
been a clich� in fashion because I grew
up in a place that wasn?t the place for
a couturier,? he reminds me.
He still takes the train to Rome
from that place every morning: the
unassuming coastal town of Nettuno,
where he was born in 1967 and returned
some 20 years ago ? when his wife,
S imona Caggia, gave bir th to
Benedetta, now 21. Pietro, 19, and
Stella, 12, followed. Piccioli studied
fashion design and got a job at Fendi,
went to Valentino in 1999 and was
made creative director, alongside Maria
Grazia Chiuri, in 2008 ? a year after
Valentino Garavani (the house?s
86-year-old founder, who still attends
his shows) left the company. In 2016,
Chiuri set sail for Dior and left Piccioli
the house all to himself. The year after,
the Qatari-owned brand surpassed one
billion euros in turnover. He says going
it alone changed his creative process
entirely. ?You don?t discuss. You don?t
confront each other. It?s about you.
You don?t have to arrive at a reason why.
You can do something just because you
feel it. It?s much more intense in a way
because you can go deeper.?
It?s a blissful solitude he has always
known. ?When you?re a kid in a place
that doesn?t correspond to you, you grow
up alone. At design school in Rome, I
thought I?d be part of a group of people.
But I wasn?t from a dynastic family of
designers like the others. I was
commuting by train. They were living
in the centre of Rome. My friends from
Nettuno studied literature, engineering
? more clever things than fashion ? so
with them I was the fancy one. With
my friends from design school I was
the intellectual, because I was studying
literature, too. I was rich to my friends
from Nettuno, because I was going to
private school, but to the guys at private
school I was the poorest. To my gay
friends I was the one with the girlfriend.
To my friends from university I was the
one going to the gay school,? Piccioli
pauses. ?So you feel like you?re in your
own place, which doesn?t belong to
anyone else. And in the end it becomes
a strength because you have to learn to
think on your own.?
That kind of thinking has made
Piccioli popular with millennials, who
are Instagramming his mind-blowing
couture creations like they were
streetwear. ?In a way it?s very modern.
It?s extreme limited edition,? he reflects
with a sassy half shrug. In a time when
every fashion house is vying for the
298
attention of the young and enlightened
generations, Piccioli waives the
interference of marketeers when it
comes to ready-to-wear collections,
choosing instead to listen to the
youngest members on his team as well
as his three children, who are less than
smitten with fashion. (Benedetta studies
literature, Pietro wants to be a sports
journalist, and Stella is still at school.)
?I don?t think millennials are so
comprehensible that you can predict
their reactions. They understand what?s
authentic and what?s not, what?s made
for them and what?s more fluid. I try
to hear what they have to say.?
Above all, his connection with the
identity-focused and defiant values of
the new youth lies in the conviction
that fashion has the power to change
our outlooks. ?It?s not enough just to
make clothes. You have to deliver a
point of view.? When, in 2016, on the
day Donald Trump won the American
election, I joined Piccioli on a trip to
Moscow ? then a city still high on the
new president ?s charm offensive
towards Vladimir Putin ? he turned up
wearing a ?Fuck Donald Trump? slogan
cap. ?At the end of the day I feel like
the presidency of this man gave people
an awareness. I saw a lot of people
standing up for their rights,? he reflects.
When the date of the Valentino show
in Paris prohibited him from voting in
the Italian election in March, in which
anti-immigration had become the
overriding debate, Piccioli says he cast
his vote through action instead. ?I felt
like having 20 black models in the
show, that being a Roman brand
represented by black beauties, was
louder than just voting. It was going
against the stupid xenophobia.?
From day one at Valentino, he has
freely integrated codes from global
cultures and subcultures into his
collections ? from ballgowns to trainers
and everything in-between ? staying
true to his belief that mankind can coexist and still preserve our cultural
identities. ?It?s not appropriation. It?s
facing your times,? he says. ?I feel
respectful, so I don?t really think about
it.? What transpires through the global
community Piccioli has created at
Valentino is an uncompromising sense
of values. ?It?s important to me to be
exactly like you feel. Even if people don?t
understand it. I don?t want to stay in a
safe category. I want to live and deliver
what I feel in every moment,? he tells
me. ?Sometimes it?s easier to stay in a
field where people recognise you, but
that?s not freedom. Freedom is about
going where you want to go.?
Q
?To be honest, I?ve never spoken publicly
about what my religious beliefs are. I?m
not professed to be a Muslim.? Would
he call himself a Muslim now? ?No,
I wouldn?t,? he says thoughtfully.
?I believe whatever people?s religious
beliefs are is between them and whoever
or whatever they?re practising. For me,
I have a spiritual belief of there is a god.
Do I believe there?s a hell? No.?
He worries that even discussing faith
?becomes a religious fucking debacle
of philosophers. I just want to keep it
between me and whatever I believe.
I feel like that makes me move through
life in a nice way. If I behave well,
I will get treated well. That?s it. I don?t
believe you need to eat a certain meat
that?s been prayed over a certain way,
I don?t believe you need to read a prayer
in a certain language five times a day.
I don?t believe any of it. I just believe
if you?re a good person everything is
going to go right for you.? Was it easy
to drop his religion, with his family?
?Really easy for me,? he says, nodding.
?With my mum and dad, they were
always there to educate us ? I did go
to mosque, I did study Islam ? but they
gave us the option so you could choose
for yourself.? But he?s glad of his
childhood years at the mosque.
?There?s definitely beautiful parts to
every religion,? he says, pleased to have
built his life around the tenets of Islam.
These sentiments might sound
pretty punchy, but he is speaking softly
and kindly. He?s smart ? certainly
smarter than your average uni student
on spliff number two, which makes
sense. That was, in many ways, his
fate. He was in his first year of A levels
when One Direction came calling,
studying English, which he still
adores. ?I did well. I got an A in my
first year,? he says, touchingly proud.
He keeps saying he?ll go back to study
and was ?recently looking up courses?.
He seems more like an undergrad than
an internationally swooned-over
famous person. Though his small talk
is a giveaway. ?She was travelling
around in a suitcase,? he says, eyes
agog, of his pal Taylor Swift?s ability
to avoid the paparazzi.
Yet he still wonders what life would
have been like had his mother not
shaken him awake at 4am for that
X Factor audition. ?It definitely wasn?t
anything like this. I had kind of an idea
I wanted to be a teacher,? he says, and
doesn?t sound like he hates the idea.
Instead he smiles, the eyes that broke
a million hearts narrowing in thought
as he sits quietly in the New York rain,
imagining what might have been. Q
