The last week’s events, news and features in retrospect

AFTER the fanfare of Milan Fashion Week (take a moment to revisit that Versace moment one more time here), the beginning of the week brokered a breather from the fashion action – but only just.

Jacquemus kicked off proceedings with the first show of the spring/summer 2018 season in the City of Light, staging his La Bomba collection at the Museé Picasso; Dior soon followed, with Maria Grazia Chiuri’s third ready-to-wear collection for the house (Miss Vogue delved into the details here); with Saint Laurent, Maison Margiela, Isabel Marant, Rick Owens and Natacha Ramsay Levi’s Chloé debut all proving to be highlights (see all our shows coverage here).

In news exclusives, Jonathan Anderson revealed the person that he couldn’t fulfil his role at Loewe without; Gucci gave us the first look at its new collaboration with Unskilled Worker; and Off-White’s Virgil Abloh told us the method behind his movement of tapping into youth culture.

Also this week, writer Morwenna Ferrier recalled her one-to-one with Hugh Hefner, following the Playboy founder’s death; we looked at why 2018 is shaping up to be a good year for women’s rights (following the news that King Salman has issued a decree that will allow women to drive legally for the first time in Saudi Arabia); explored why Irish abortion law should be on everyone’s agenda; reminisced on Jane Birkin’s most stylish films as her new tour arrived in the UK; and got anthropological – sort of – with our modern guide to handholding, after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance arm in arm at the Invictus Games (see the prince in his element at the event he organises annually).

In celebratory news, Natalie Massenet announced that she and her partner Erik Torstensson had welcomed a son, born via a surrogate; Kit Harington and Rose Leslie announced their engagement, with a traditional notice in The Times; the winners of the inaugural Eco Age Green Carpet Awards were announced in Milan; and Vanessa Kingori was announced as the new publishing director of British Vogue.

As the weekend arrives, we have rounded up the best things to do, for those looking for inspiration; curated the best alternative hen-do tips, for those trying to plan something special; and give you the best beauty-bag essentials for everyone heading off for Fresher’s Week. Enjoy.
