The word “iconic” may be an oft overused adjective, but it’s a term that best sums up the mood of L’Officiel Singapore’s September 2020 edition. Delving into the concept of what elevates a person or a product to icon status, this month the magazine, with the help of a diversity of notable creatives, puts a finger on that ineffable but instantly recognisable flair.

“Leading the way is the undisputed Queen of K-pop, none other than BoA — she positively smoulders in Louis Vuitton on the cover of The Icons Issue, and weighs in on pop legend Michael Jackson, 20 years of breaking boundaries, and working with EXO, Red Velvet and Bol4,” says Ian Lee, Editor-in-Chief of L’Officiel Singapore.

“We also get ahold of sister duo and rising R&B superstars, Chloe x Halle, to find out more about their Fendi favourite, the emblematic Peekaboo, and hear from streetwear maven Yoon Ahn of Ambush about working her magic on Bulgari’s signature Serpenti Forever bag,” Lee continues.

“September’s coterie of icon(oclast)s is joined by Danish supermodel Freja Beha Erichsen, who lends her trademark cool-girl attitude to Tiffany & Co.’s T1 series, and shares the reason she considers Frida Kahlo and Karen Blixen her personal inspirations.”
