I love winter. It’s a time to bunker down, spend time with loved ones and take stock. Two friends of ours here at InStyle—cover star Asher Keddie and model Jesinta Franklin–have done just that and are shifting focus and redefining their public roles. Jesinta reveals why Instagram motivated the launch of her new app (p82), while Asher (p73), like many of us, has been wearing plenty of hats including being the official new campaign ambassador for Georg Jensen and Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). On the note of hitting refresh, I always get to this point in the season where I feel like I literally have nothing to wear (despite being energised by a new season wardrobe only a couple of months ago). So if you’re like me and needing a…

Live by Night LA-based Australian actor Courtney Eaton talks timeless style, ’80s movies and teaming with Cartier and Sofia Coppola for a second time. Sofia Coppola directed you for the relaunch of the Panthère watch in 2017, and now to celebrate the latest collection. I imagine working with her is an actor’s dream… “She is honestly a dream. She has an incredible vision of what she wants—she’s very hands on with hair and make-up, costumes and also on set. You feel safe in her hands.” The shots have an ’80s vibe to them—are you a fan of the era? “I love an ’80s moment. Give me some Debbie Harry rock’n’roll chic any day.

1 WOLFGANG SCOUT It took Wolfgang Scout’s three co-founders two years from buying their first bale of wool to this year launching with a fully traceable collection that “celebrates the beauty of Australian superfine merino”. From sustainably developing their own yarn using no harmful chemicals to crafting it into need-now crew-neck knits, the label proves that conscious and ultra-covetable clothes needn’t be mutually exclusive. 2 HOLLY RYAN Jeweller Ryan doesn’t like waste. As well as prioritising circularity in her own practice, she welcomes pre-loved pieces (from anywhere—not just her own label), and will repair, renew or pay you for their material value in store credit. 3 ELK After being confronted with a manufacturer’s neglect, Elk instigated an overhaul of their supply chain and released one of the most comprehensive transparency reports to…

7am I EXERCISE I always wake up early and I make sure I do an hour of exercise. I didn’t do any form of regular exercise until I turned 50 [he is now 85], and then a friend said that it would become essential for feeling good and sharp. He was right. 8.30am I DRESS I have a go-to wardrobe when I travel, which comprises navy cashmere T-shirts and crew-necks, some simple dark-navy trousers and a few dark-blue and black unstructured jackets…and my signature white trainers. 8.45am I BREAKFAST This is fresh fruit and yoghurt, cornflakes, prunes, almonds and walnuts. Breakfast is a very important meal for me. 10am I SHOWTIME PREP I go to the Tokyo National Museum, built in 1872. In the past few days, I have worked with my team on fittings and lighting…

Don’t leave home without it. CONCEPTUAL COOL For design that’s innovative rather than derivative, look to Marni’s latest batch of accessories, which filter everyday essentials through an experimental lens. UP, UP AND AWAY Dramatically tucked sleeves and a statement-foiled finish join forces across Toni Maticevski’s aptly named Stargazer gown, to evoke escapism that’s set in the sky.
