#Legend - - EDITOR’S LETTER / LEGEND HAS IT - KIERAN HO ED­I­TO­RIAL DIREC­TOR

WE DID IT! After half a year of plan­ning, enough air miles to cir­cle the world sev­eral times over and a crew of 30, we present to you #leg­end's first quadru­ple cover is­sue. The cast of the cover was an ab­so­lute dream: Marc Ja­cobs, eas­ily one of the world's most recog­nis­able fash­ion de­sign­ers, with some of China's top mod­els from present and past and to top ev­ery­thing off, the shoot was lensed in Shang­hai by one of China's most in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised pho­tog­ra­phers, Chen Man. It would be a lie to say that this cover shoot wasn't a huge un­der­tak­ing but we wouldn't have it any other way.

On the fash­ion front, spring sum­mer 2018 is now be­hind us and we're now stepping into the nether­void be­tween sea­sons dubbed “pre-fall”. The best thing about this trans-sea­sonal col­lec­tion is the po­ten­tial mileage that you can get out if it be­cause Pre-Fall col­lec­tions are so ver­sa­tile with­out be­ing overly di­rec­tional so you can wear th­ese pieces well into next year while keep­ing it fresh. With that said, in this is­sue's fash­ion spreads, we take our favourite pieces and present them in dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios from the horse sta­ble to the streets at night-time show­ing the adapt­abil­ity of fash­ion that this sea­son has to of­fer.

Mean­while our cre­ative direc­tor Gor­don Lam trav­els to Mar­rakech to find his lucky charm and fea­tures ed­i­tor Marta Colombo rem­i­nisces on the power of the tele­vi­sion show Sex and the City as it hits it's 20th an­niver­sary this year and we re­mem­ber a brighter time when the four women ruled the streets of New York City long be­fore the on­line feud be­tween Kim Cat­trall and Sarah Jes­sica Parker.

As we en­ter the sum­mer months, there's one topic that's on the tip of ev­ery­body's tongues – travel. What's your favourite thing to do on your trav­els? Be­sides wit­ness­ing the as­ton­ish­ing sights and in­dulging on the scrump­tious lo­cal cui­sine, we'd say tak­ing pho­tos is a pretty im­por­tant part of the ex­pe­ri­ence, and if you want pho­tos that will make your friends green with envy but don't know how, we've got you cov­ered. We in­vited some of Hong Kong's travel savvy in­flu­encers to give you some point­ers on how to travel in style and cap­ture that per­fect shot that you'll be proud to share on your In­sta­gram. Tag us in your stun­ning hol­i­day pho­tos @hash­tag_le­gend or #hash­ta­gle­gend, we're look­ing for­ward to see­ing where your trav­els take you!
