is made to become unfashionable. - COCO CHANEL


H! I love fashion season and all that it represents. It is not simply a time when designers shift gears and parade their new collections down runways of the world. I also love this time of year because it kicks off the official season of “coccooning� - that time where it is a-okay to wrap and layer with relative ease and definitive style.

Gigi Hadid slayed it in 2016; earning her the coveted spot as our Fashion Issue cover model. And speaking of supermodels take a closer look at how they are ruling the fashion world [Model Citizens, page 17]. Finally, fashion columnist Jennifer Costanzo is taking a close look at the enduring trend of navy in all its fashion forms [Fashion Fix, page 42].

This is our annual Fashion Issue, and reaching 6.5 million readers worldwide means curating a magazine that speaks to all fashion style and sensibiities. I think the NICHE team nailed it!

Go ahead - fall back into fashion! Let the magic in these pages of our annual Fashion Issue inspire your own style revolution.

In this issue, I am excited to share with you our nostalgic look back at the most favorite photographs we have published to date [In RETROspect, page 64]. To keep things interesting, we chose The Olsen Twins as our designer feature [Fashion Legend, page 50]. As we continue with our iconic year of female screen stars, NICHE brings you the story of Lauren Bacall [Icon, page 82], and Style Editor Josie Saldat is showcasing the best in global fashion week street style [NICHE Street Style, page 10].
