Summer is finally here…  Cue Instagram feeds filled with raffia basket bags, woven shoes, crisp cotton shirting and earthy neutrals, all set under shady palm trees and sandy shores. But it’s more than just social media embracing au natural this month. At The MOD we are celebrating a sense of reality – keeping it real, to be precise, and the freedom that comes with that. From our cover star Caroline Labouchere, who’s modelling career began after she embraced her grey hair and a perfect example of how confidence that comes with age, to the Olsen twins’ pared back, modest approach to more than just their fashion and beauty choices. We also welcome Roksanda Illinic to The Modist family – her modest cuts and bold colour combinations are built to highlight and compliment a women’s strength and confidence. Now is the time to stand proud, and believe in the fact that that there is a very (real) beauty to being exactly who you are.
