Annabel Lid­dell, who graces our cover and spring fash­ion spread, is not only a mu­si­cian and a muse, but a sixth-year med­i­cal stu­dent. It’s hard to think of two more dis­parate dis­ci­plines. Per­haps un­sur­pris­ingly then, her fash­ion mantra is “an­ar­chy rules”. The rule is, there are no rules. Trail­blaz­ers are of­ten not fash­ion­able in the pop­u­lar def­i­ni­tion of the word. They are the dis­rupters, the play­ful; there is joy and hu­mour in the ex­e­cu­tion of their style. Like Jes­sica Gru­bisa, of Har­man Gru­bisa, who this week writes a funny, heart­felt love let­ter to sun­glasses — the front row ac­ces­sory for any fash­ion week. Like Blair Archibald, who blurs the lines to spec­tac­u­lar ef­fect. To this, I’d add my own mantra: age is not a con­dem­na­tion. This is­sue is ded­i­cated to the many lay­ers of the fash­ion world, to pop­u­lar cul­ture, to the rebels. May they in­spire us, al­ways.
