Summer should be about CHIC escapes to exotic islands, where linen shirts and bikinis are the uniform, and worries FADE as soon as you step into the clear water.   The spirit this summer is one of adventures and spontaneity, en lieu of predictability. So why don’t you pack a bag of the SS16 essentials — white linen shirts, suede jackets, monochrome bikinis, high-waisted camel-hued shorts, and subtle golden jewellery – and take the next plane or train somewhere exotic like St. Barths, where this WSJ editorial was shot? The beach needn’t mean boredom

The SLEEVES take centre-stage this season, and you choose how to style them: SCULPTURAL bell or leg-of-mutton sleeves for some drama, or a rolled-up oversize shirt for HIGH-IMPACT workwear.   You can blame J.W Anderson’s leg-of-mutton sleeves in the spring/summer 2016 collection for fashion’s focus on sleeves, or lack thereof, for spring. While the designer’s decidedly oversized pouffs evoking an Edwardian futurism set everyone talking, he’s not the only one focusing on the head and shoulders (in lieu of knees and toes) for the warmer months. At Simone Rocha, there were frothy macrame bubble sleeves; Gucci’s

In a time when FASHION is celebrating the return of the SUPERMODEL, Gigi’s cover shoot for Vogue Paris comes in at the pinnacle of the movement. The magic FORMULA? Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel collections, a blonde BOMBSHELL, and some killer styling.   It isn’t the presence of Gigi Hadid — although that did help the March issue get noticed — but the styling, that won me over. While Gigi is easily replaceable by another blonde bombshell like Ana Ewers who, unlike Hadid, seems to be completely unaware of her sex appeal while maintaining an air of nonchalance, Emmanuelle Alt’s

Fashion week muses, and the sources of photographers’ flashes and close-ups, go through CYCLES. A couple of years ago, it was the Russian czarinas in opulent embroideries and colour experiments. More recently, the FRENCH fashion editors took centre stage with a Parisienne nonchalance that cannot be emulated. The past two seasons, it’s the ITALIAN crew — dressed in everything from Gucci to Vetements, but giving everything personality — that spearheaded street style.   Whether it’s the return of Gucci as the it-fashion house at the helm of Alessandro Michele, or the fact that 2015 was

Traveling to a desolate resort on the SINAI peninsula following the 2015 plane crash was a singular experience, but not without its share of rose-gold SUNSETS, turquoise waters, and dreamy coral REEFS: the ingredients for a PERFECT break.   I have been in Sharm el-Sheikh for two days, and realise that so far my trip has been marked by one fact: solitude. The airport’s sizeable runway had exactly two airplanes when our Swiss Air flight landed, making the 70s old-fashioned terminal seem oversized for the few passengers there were. The highway which our taxi
