What’s in Lucire issue 39?

Published just after our 21st anniversary, issue 39 of Lucire has a cinematic theme: we look at the industry after #MeToo, and how yellowface in cinema has given way to Crazy Rich Asians, the summer hit of ’18. Even Louis Vuitton’s history is worthy of an epic, as are the World of Wearable Art Awards; Madrid and New York have their fashion weeks; and Snejana Onopka makes a guest appearance. And: Atelier Paulin’s unique jewellery, the Jaguar I-Pace, and travel to Dubrovnik, Paris and Bergen.

Škoda Karoq: being Praguematic

It’s farewell to Škoda’s very clever Yeti after eight years, and hello to the Karoq, another unusually named compact vehicle. But rather than the MPV-like philosophy of the earlier car, this one’s a crossover with SUV proportions. Does it succeed? Jack Yan takes it for a brief test
