Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give. In a world that is short rather than long on positivity, a friendly reminder to be kind is always timely,
And this thought served as our common theme for our May 2019 "Be Kind" issue. For our cover feature this month, we have quite the momentous affair where we cast one of Malaysian biggest personalities, Neelofa (@neelofa) as our lady of choice, who is radiating in Swarovski’s Spring/Summer 2019 bejewelled pieces.
This also marks a momentous occasion for L'Officiel because Neelofa marks the first ever Hijabi woman to be featured on the cover of L'Officiel in the Southeast Asia region. This wonderful collaboration was made possible by Swarovski, who has been working closely with Neelofa over the past few years.
In her interview portion, Neelofa gets candid about her partnership with Swarovski and how she navigates life with grace.

Neelofa aside, we also shine the spotlight on how fashion brands are shaping a cleaner tomorrow with faux furs, organic materials and the repurposing of found fabrics in The Green Sheet.
We also feature the rise of ethical jewellery, and how philanthropy guides a trio of watchmakers and their ambassadors in aid of those in need. Keeping It Real introduces four brands putting conscious beauty on the map with their honest offerings.
Last but not least, we have a special shoutout for model-of-the-moment Maeva Marshall whom we partner with to showcase the new Clash De Cartier collection as part of our global L'Officiel x Cartier initiative.
