July/August Editor’s Letter: The Great Escape

2 min read

Brights, bold prints and beachwear pour from the pages of MOJEH July/August alongside sun-safe beauty and breathtaking haute jewels. In the editor’s letter, Editor-in-Chief Mojeh Izadpanah shares what she’s looking forward to this summer

The Great Escape. What does that mean to you? To me it’s a month, a week, or even just a day to step out of the nine-to-five and step into a little bit of ‘me’ time. With that in mind, our July/August issue has you covered.

If you’re looking for an ‘escape’ in the grandest sense — a month-long break in a luxurious yet undiscovered setting such as Antiparos in Greece or the St Tropez of Brazil, Buzios — or something a bit more energetic like a long weekend rekindling your romance with the Big Apple, then turn to our travel section for a plethora of ideas. Alternatively, if a 24-hour R&R pitstop is what you have time for then flip to our Health & Beauty section where we run through the best treatments to save your sun-drenched skin. In fashion, there’s nothing quite as exciting as a high summer wardrobe. From mood-boosting rainbow brights and a wardrobe that sings to your inner islander, to the haughtiest of high jewels set to turn your holiday wardrobe up by at least 10 notches, the greatest of escapes first require a wardrobe that lifts you off your feet.
