Inside February IMAGE: The Love Issue

Love is not a word you hear used in politics, or in the mainstream media, very often. But get your ear to the ground at any touchpoint recently, and it is the word on people's lips. The strange and, to many, dark forces at work in current times have brought the sentiment front and centre. It's on placards, everyone's social feed, and on our minds. So for our February issue, we wanted to make it a burst of affection and emotion in all its guises.


SS17? What's to Love?

Yes, it's cold outside, but these new-season trends can be worn come hail, rain or shine. From fuchsia to frilly sleeves, fashion editor Marie Kelly tells you how to anchor your spring wardrobe.



Who do you dress for?

Yourself, your husband, your fashionable friend? Or does your Instagram feed, in fact, inform what you wear? IMAGE investigates.


Love Rules

Loving yourself is a term mostly used in the negative, but it's time we reclaimed it for all its worth. Award-winning writer Stefanie Preissner talks empowerment, acceptance and freedom.



Do What You Love

Cover Story
