The return of ShortList MODE

modehero.jpg

It’s the news we hope you’ve been waiting for: ShortList MODE is returning. On 20 March, to be precise. However, if the words ShortList and MODE placed in such close proximity mean very little to you, let us explain. It’s the name of our biannual glossy fashion magazine, which launched this time last year with UK model David Gandy on the cover.

This time, the cover star is rising actor Sam Claflin (pictured) who appeared in BBC’s Munich air disaster drama United as Duncan Edwards and is currently starring in new BBC Two drama, White Heat. He features in a five-page matinee idol-themed photoshoot, but that’s just a taster of the issue’s bigger picture: tribes. Or more specifically (and helpfully) society’s iconic fashion groups. Think mods, punks and rockabillies.

Elsewhere in the issue we interview Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (better known by their company name — Dolce & Gabbana) about their incredible careers, model-turned-actor Jamie Dornan picks his favourite pieces for spring/summer, and we reveal our 50 essential items for the season.

And (as a thank you for reading this far) we’ll let slip a couple of teasers so you’re ahead of the game. Namely Panama hats and unstructured lightweight blazers. Don’t tell anyone, just quietly move in the direction of the shops and take your pick before the rush starts. You have until next Tuesday.
