Your First Look Inside the New-Look Issue of STYLE

The Autumn 2020 issue – on sale Monday 23 March – marks a departure from the expected and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for STYLE.

Inside the 240-page issue, we embark a new journey – a journey that celebrates décor, fashion, beauty, culture and travel. We explore the deep connection between these worlds to bring you an issue that is sure to inspire you this autumn.

To mark the occasion and to celebrate STYLE’s new beginning, you can take your pick of not one but two very special covers and our subscribers will receive their own unique covers of the all-new STYLE.  

In STYLE tradition, we have travelled the globe in search of the people and destinations that inspire us.

We head to the Netherlands and step inside the Rotterdam home of Dutch-New Zealand design darling, Sabine Marcelis.

We take all the must-have fashion you need this autumn to the northern hemisphere too, with the rich heritage of the St Anton region of Austria forming the backdrop for fashion editorials.

Back on home soil we catch-up with the inspiring creatives pushing the boundaries in their chosen fields – photographer Petra Leary, the duo behind Monmouth Glass and Kirsten Paisley, the new director of Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.

And we discover the harmonious colour palette for autumn – delicious shades of caramel, deeps blues, dusky pinks and ochres – that is reflected in not only decor and fashion but in beauty too.

Victoria’s Secret debuts diverse new campaign

Lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret has responded to criticism over its lack of diversity amongst its models with a new campaign.

The campaign for the Spring 2020 ‘Body by Victoria’ line features models of all shapes, sizes, and ages.

The brand’s first openly transgender model has posed for the campaign too – 23-year-old Valentina Sampaio.

 

The photographs were shot by Helena Christensen, 51, who also modelled for the campaign. She was joined by another VS veteran, 49-year-old Daniela Pestova.

Plus-size models Candice Huffine and Solange van Doorn feature alongside familiar Victoria’s Secret faces such as Joan Smalls, Jasmine Tookes and Barbara Palvin.

The new campaign is part of an image overhaul for the brand, which has been criticised for only featuring young, thin and cisgender models in its catalogues and on runways.

In 2019, the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show was cancelled as the company prepared to “evolve the marketing” of the brand.

For years the show had been a frustration of many, including consumers, commentators and even models. Former Angel Karlie Kloss quit the show in the name of feminism and the outdated concept of what beauty was.

Victoria’s Secret’s former Chief Marketing Officer created controversy when he said there was “no room” for plus-size models on their runway and that he would not cast transgender models in an interview with Vogue.com.

And the L Brands company’s founder and CEO Leslie Wexner was tied to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein was Wexner’s former personal money manager and a trustee of the Wexner Foundation, Wexner’s charitable group based Ohio.
