The mo­men­tum is­sue


A WISE RING-TAILED lemur from the Republic of Mada­gas­car once pro­claimed: “I like to move it, move it” – and for the months of May and June, we to­tally agree with his sen­ti­ment. This is the Mo­men­tum Is­sue, an om­nichan­nel cu­ra­tion of fun, en­gag­ing and in­spi­ra­tional con­tent that will have you tap­ping your feet and shaking your hips.

As city folk, the world around us is in con­stant flux and mo­men­tum is sec­ond-na­ture – al­most to the point that we be­come im­mune to it. But if you take a step back, you'll re­alise there's so much beauty within the chaos that might have been for­got­ten, be­cause we have be­come so busy sur­viv­ing in this de­mand­ing land­scape that we for­get to live. When was the last time you pressed the pause but­ton on life and took a mo­ment to look around?

We've taken mo­men­tum and slowed it down just enough to capture a se­lec­tion of dy­namic im­ages, each with a back­story, rang­ing from the fast-ap­proach­ing styles of next sea­son to a pair of African ele­phants with their tusks locked in com­bat, and to a refugee-run food truck speed­ing through Beirut. Each story is en­tirely unique, but they all con­tain an un­de­ni­able sense of ve­loc­ity, beauty and mo­men­tum.

You'll find yourself tan­ta­lised by the hottest styles com­ing in from across the globe in our au­tumn/win­ter 2019 fash­ion run­way re­port. After you ogle the se­lec­tion of the cur­rent sea­son's styles to know, scan the QR code with your mo­bile de­vice and you'll be whisked away to a digital ver­sion of the shoot, where you can see the beau­ti­ful fab­rics in slow­mo­tion move­ment – and maybe even shop the looks online, too.

We cer­tainly can't miss the woman of the mo­ment, Gemma Chan, the Hol­ly­wood ac­tress of Hong Kong de­scent who's blow­ing up on the sil­ver screens. The Crazy Rich Asians ac­tress speaks with us ex­clu­sively about her roots and how she finds life in the fast lane. And be­ing Chi­nese, how could we not talk about food? You'll also dis­cover what Chan's favourite Chi­nese food is – writ­ten in the star­let's own hand­writ­ing – and rest as­sured, it's crazy de­li­cious!
