Once again, the MiNDFOOD STYLE team packed up a dozen-plus suitcases with the hottest new-season fashion to continue our sartorial journey around the globe. This time it was the bustling streets of Tokyo and the tranquil nature of Kyoto that formed the backdrop for a fashion-packed Spring/Summer issue. Hereâ€™s what youâ€™ll find inside.
Sometimes the simplest colour palettes are the most striking: minimalist monochrome comes alive on the cobblestone streets of Kyoto. As Dior turns 70, editor Nicole Saunders heads to Melbourne to for the NGVâ€™s The House of Dior exhibition and chats with revered milliner, Stephen Jones. From our favourite florals to must-have swimwear, we round-up all the pieces you need in your wardrobe now.
Accoutrements have the power to make our back and outfit: inside youâ€™ll find all the accessories you need in our dedicated Accessories Guide. Read up on the latest must-know trends hot off the runway and indulge in luxury arm candy youâ€™ll never regret investing in. Â
In a MiNDFOOD STYLE exclusive, Louis Vuittonâ€™s Cruise collection comes alive in Kyoto. The bustling pedestrian crossings of Ginza served as the the backdrop for our sports-luxe shoot; Letâ€™s Get Physical; a cacophony of colour brings Harajuku Girls (page 146) to life; while in true Japanese style, the welcoming owners of the teeniest, tiniest bars weâ€™ve ever laid eyes on let our crew squeeze inside to shoot the seasonâ€™s glitzy evening wear.
Want to go nude this summer? Weâ€™ve rounded up everything you need to let your complexion breathe and be beautiful. We take a look at fresh fragrances, must-have skincare and talk to Natalie Portman about the makeover of Diorâ€™s most iconic lipstick.
Japan-bound? We have curated our guide to the very best of Tokyo and Kyoto including the expansive five-story Dior boutique in Ginza.
Shot on location in Japan, the Spring/Summer 18 issue of MiNDFOOD STYLE hits newsstands Monday 18 September.Â
