Welcome to our East-meets-West issue, where fashion is a portal to a world of contrasting cultures. Our global style experts attended a special workshop in East-meets-West Istanbul to create it for you, capturing the mood in a photoshoot featuring Jean Paul Gaultier and Peter Pilotto, among others. (See the ultra-glam results on our front cover.)
We also have costume designer Anaïs Romand on Yves Saint Laurent's muse, Loulou de La Falaise; Lina Plioplyte on her debut movie, Advanced Style, about stylish women of a certain age, including octogenarian Iris Apfel; famous Hong Kong-based chef Vicky Lau; Emirates fashion designer Madiyah Al Sharqi; Madrid jewelry designer Anton Heunis; and Austrian chandelier-maker, Lobmeyr. Plus, we show you how to mix cultures to get the jet-set gypsy look. Enjoy!
