Lila Moss exploited as British vogueThe Star of May Cover
Modeling is in Lila Moss’ genes. The 19-year-old struts around in her mother Kate’s heel prints; longtime muse of the fashion world whose face is on 43 British vogue blankets. Mini Moss is destined for success – and her final appearance in pubs May edition is the proof. To commemorate the cover, she sat down with writer Ellie Pithers to discuss everything you’d want to know, from early modeling to raiding her (jealous, Nope?) to how she studied her parents’ fame as a way to navigate her own. Talking about how her career took off, Moss said she dabbled in modeling at a young age – against the discretion of her mother, who knew the industry all too well – which meant that the paparazzi and camera clicks were quick to follow. And she knew exactly how to handle it. “I would always copy her [Kate],” she said. “I’ve seen it with my own eyes, so I’m much more able to deal with it. I had to say no to people. But I’m still nice! Moss also states that she was the last to think of it, but has since grown to admire her mother’s effortless style. “Over the past three or four years, I’ve realized that her style is actually really cool. I have to admit it now. In the images, shot by Steven Meisel, the blonde beauty can be found adorned with Loewe, Prada , Versace, Fendi, Alberta Ferretti, Dior and the chicest range of headpieces you’ve ever seen.

Condé stops the publication of Vogue Russia in light of the ongoing war
Next on board the train to cease operations in Russia is Condé Nast, which has just announced the closure of its Russian edition. The more permanent move follows the publisher’s initial suspension in March. The ax was not retaliation, as Condé CEO Roger Lynch said “the escalation in the severity of censorship laws…has dramatically curtailed free speech and punished journalists simply for doing their job, which made our work in Russia untenable”. Lynch’s statement also acknowledged the publication’s staff, 90% of whom have already lost their jobs. “What weighs heavily on my mind is our staff who did not choose this war and yet continue to bear some of the consequences of it.” The first edition of Vogue Russia was printed in 1998 and last edited by editor Ksenia Solovieva. All team broadcasts are suspended until further notice.
Pyer Moss expands inventory with first-ever offering of handbags and shoes
Just a month after ending his relationship with Reebok, Pyer Moss creative director Kerby Jean-Raymond realized he couldn’t stay away from designing must-have shoes. Released today, the designer has expanded Pyer Moss’ ready-to-wear offering to include women’s handbags and shoes. The tote collection includes a range of five handbags, which feature asymmetrical silhouettes and hand-patterned designs, as well as stiletto heels and lace-up mules. According to Jean-Raymond, who recently took a brief hiatus from design, the foray into categories was inspired by a collection that never saw a release. “The hand pattern is something we started working on in early 2019 for what was the first release of collection four, and then we rolled it into our couture collection,” he said. “[It’s] something that feels fun, familiar and reminiscent [us] of solidarity. Along with the launch, the brand posted billboards in New York and Miami to promote its exciting development. Given the designer’s commitment to intentional manufacturing, items will only be produced in quantities needed to avoid overproduction. So if you feel like it (obviously!), we recommend you buy it quickly on PyerMoss.com. Small leather goods and the second drop of the Couture Capsule collection are also up for grabs.
