It’s easy to be overwhelmed when thinking about sustainability, which is why we wanted our stories to be real, relevant and hopeful. To help us, we brought on guest editor Sarah Jay. The Toronto-based stylist and sustainability consultant used her expertise to provide insightful guidance on our stories, and she also styled our sustainable clothing and jewellery shoot below.

The New Armour

For Prada’s F/W 18 collection, Miuccia Prada was inspired by the insecurity she felt when she was walking down the street one night. Calvin Klein’s response to our dystopian cultural climate was to arm his models with balaclavas and hazmat-like jackets. This get-ready-for-Armageddon mindset inspired our October issue’s theme, which was “The New Armour.”

Identity Matters

Following the transformation of our print edition, we focused on identity. It’s a huge, complicated and meaningful topic that is being explored in fashion, beauty and culture. Our new identity is still taking shape, so expect more evolutions and surprises to come.
