INSIDE OUT BY ED TRIGLONE, ISAAC BROWN AND ISABELLE TRUMAN
You can’t start a fashion label anymore without the question of sustainability arising. But Maggie Hewitt, founder of Maggie Marilyn, doesn’t think doing the bare minimum is enough. In fact, she thinks it’s unsustainable in the true essence of the word. Breaking away from the wholesalers who helped to skyrocket her brand to the international success it now has, Hewitt is forging her own path - a path towards a truly sustainable future for all.
THE SPACE BETWEEN BY LEVON BAIRD AND JORDAN WATTON
“... please tell
us where the slope inclines and can be climbed;
for he who best discerns the worth of time
is most distressed whenever time is lost.”
JUST KIDS BY DAN ROBERTS AND HENRY COUSINS
Thanks to the internet, Generation Z is more socially and politically aware than any who came before them, spearheading activist movements and creating real, tangible change before they’re even able to vote. But when they were already being dealt an unfair hand, - managing Trump, a climate crisis and puberty all at the same time - the addition of a global pandemic would be almost comical, if it wasn’t so terrifying.
ISLAND IN THE SUN BY DANIEL GOODE
Two days before Christmas, when the tease of summer was upon us, we took a small crew of creatives and Chanel's Cruise 2021 collection to South Cronulla beach to capture what we hoped would be the essence of a time year that now seems too often sentimentalised. We are so very lucky that on this island in the sun, 2021 is already bright - creative pursuit is possible, and across a plethora of industries, abundant. Daniel Goode captures Australian model Georgia Fowler in the clothes we want most.

STAND FOR SOMETHING – ZIGGY RAMO BY VANESSA SWEDÉRUS, RHYS RIPPER AND GRACE O’NEILL
Ziggy Ramo recorded his year-defining album, Black Thoughts, in 2015 — but he held on to it for five years, told by the music industry that an Australian public so in denial about their own racist past (and present) couldn’t handle its contents.

Grace O'Neill spends an hour in conversation with the magnanimous rapper.
THE SOCIAL DILEMMA – YAN YAN CHAN BY PIERRE TOUSSAINT & GRACE O’NEILL
Social media gets a bad rap these days. Justifiably so, for anyone who has seen The Social Dilemma and then fallen into a dark hole of existential despair, convinced Facebook is slowly melting our minds and chipping away at the foundations of modern democracy.

I HAVE MEASURED OUT MY LIFE WITH COFFEE SPOONS BY VICTORIA PEARSON AND ANNA POGOSSOVA
There is a semi-deflated black orb gathering dust on a shelf in my home that taunts me whenever it veers into my eyeline. Its pearlescent sheen and accompanying yoga mat are silent and still, but may as well be shrieking and shaking with the force at which I’m confronted by their daily cry: We have been abandoned. Victoria Pearson considers how history will remember our time.

MADE UP BY DEREK HENDERSON AND MATILDA DODS
Make up, and the beauty industry when subtracted from narratives of both mass consumerism, and oppressive beauty standards, contains the potential for rebellious lightheartedness. The personal is political, but that does not mean that either can’t be fun. The new identity of the beauty industry is fun, embracing its inherent frivolity and its revolutionary potential as a political force.
