Wel­come To The Is­sue

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Contents -

In tem­per­ate climes, July her­alds the end of warm days at the beach frol­ick­ing in turquoise waves – yet it also

sig­nals the com­ing of a thrilling new sea­son. This month, BAZAAR pre­sents the best of Pre-Fall ’14. ‘Eight Till Late’ (page 108), ex­plores a wealth of wardrobe ideas for the woman with cor­po­rate game. Make your

mark in sharp printed suits, ex­quis­ite knit dresses, and sump­tu­ous boots of rich suede and leather. Next, Terry Richard­son pho­to­graphs ‘The New Neu­trals’ (page 126) in a pal­ette of el­e­gant cham­pagne, tan­ta­lis­ing

peach, and the sweet­est dove grey with cin­e­matic 1940s flair. For a lit­tle celebrity in­spi­ra­tion, cover model Elisa Sednaoui Del­lal styles her brand of ’ 70s glam­our on page 118. The cam­paign model, ac­tress, and new di­rec­tor es­tab­lished the Elisa Sednaoui Foun­da­tion in 2013 to pro­mote cre­ativ­ity and cul­tural ex­change. Its first work­shop, which took place in Luxor, Egypt last April, was pre­sented

in col­lab­o­ra­tion with ed­u­ca­tion non­profit or­gan­i­sa­tion MIMA Mu­sic and the Makan Egyp­tian Cen­ter for Cul­ture and Arts, fea­tur­ing in­ter­ac­tive song­writ­ing work­shops for chil­dren. The Ital­ian-Egyp­tian beauty has also launched an exclusive sum­mer collection for mother and daugh­ter with Yoox.com, in sup­port of the Elisa Sednaoui Foun­da­tion. Cur­rently in post-pro­duc­tion is her di­rec­to­rial de­but, a doc­u­men­tary on love in the Egyp­tian coun­try­side, but the film we’re wait­ing for is the one in which she stars. Di­rected by Alessan­dro Gen­ovesi,

‘Soap Opera’ will be re­leased later this year.

Till then, re­visit the ‘Gilded Era’ (page 144) for the lat­est cul­tural hits. Be it the fas­ci­nat­ing Charles James ex­hi­bi­tion – breath­tak­ing ball gowns ga­lore! – at the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art in New York or plan­ning

the hot ticket to catch at the Ge­orge Town Fes­ti­val 2014 in Pe­nang, have a beau­ti­ful art-filled month.
