H&M -magazine-COVER

The new autumn issues are out and not only are we gifted doorstop sized Vogues, but also the free zines from the high street.

Also in this issue is a superb menswear story (called Le Cafe, shot by Daniel Riera) featuring chic fashion guys having their caffeine moment. It’s both very now and quietly timeless. It reminds me a lot of Fantastic Man but then Riera shoots for them as well…

Feature-wise, SHOWstudio’s Lou Stoppard has a piece on wardrobe workhorses (the ankle boot, the oversized coat) and Robin Henry writes about the Instagram Effect, while the lovely Kiki Georgiou explores the ‘Chic mystique’ of the Paris Voguettes. And then there’s Bette Franke looking ravishing on the cover and in a 16-page editorial shot by Katjar Rahlwes and styled by Geraldine Saglio.
