WEL­COME TO THE IS­SUE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - NEWS -

Clutch, Anya Hind­march Novem­ber shim­mers with the ex­cite­ment of hol­i­day fes­tiv­i­ties on the hori­zon – but first things first: this is where your Au­tumn/Win­ter run­way buys get se­ri­ous. As tem­per­a­tures drop, fur and shear­ling come out to play.

To start you off, ‘ Neu­tral Ter­ri­tory’ (page 216) ex­plores win­ter­wear in – sur­prise! – desert shades. Think army green, golden sands, and of course, camel. But for a Malaysian woman to wrap her­self in such warm fare would re­quire a bit of stylish travel, and for in­spi­ra­tion we turn to Louis Vuit­ton. In ‘ Mono­gram Mo­ment’ (page 224), six icon­o­clasts en­vi­sion the house’s famed logo. From Karl Lager­feld’s Punch­ing Trunk to Frank Gehry’s Twisted Box bag, th­ese global pow­er­houses prove them­selves, to quote LV’s ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent Del­phine Ar­nault, “a group of ge­niuses”.

In­tel­li­gence may be non-ne­go­tiable but a first im­pres­sion is what starts things off, no mat­ter what your age. Therein lies the foun­da­tion of our Beauty Is­sue, draw­ing from the di­aries of in­dus­try in­sid­ers (page 124) and ex­plor­ing the many ways to look fab­u­lous with ev­ery decade (Turn to page 122 to find out how).

This month also sees the re­turn of BAZAAR’s an­nual Beauty Awards with the Hot 150 that im­pressed an ex­pert panel of judges – TV dar­ling Na­dia Heng, young en­tre­pre­neur Kim Ray­mond, screen siren Deanna Yu­soff, BAZAAR Man and bar owner, David Yee, as well as ed­i­tor-in-chief Natasha Kraal. Here’s to rainbow-pal­ette wishes and caviar creams!
