September

September is here! This month not only marks the start of autumn but a new season within the world of fashion too, so we’re focusing on all things fashion sharing our muses, style inspirations and happenings.

The Harvest Moon will rise at sunset and its bright early evening glow would traditionally help farmers harvest their crops. Other names for September’s full moon are corn moon or barley moon, these relate to both corn and barley being harvested at this time of year.

LITERARY

An ode to the new season we share John Updike’s poem, September

The breezes taste

Of apple peel.

The air is full

Of smells to feel-

Ripe fruit, old footballs,

Burning brush,

New books, erasers,

Chalk, and such.

The bee, his hive,

Well-honeyed hum,

And Mother cuts

Chrysanthemums.

Like plates washed clean

With suds, the days

Are polished with

A morning haze.

-John Updike

BIRTHSTONE

The birthstone for this month is sapphire, known for its rich blue colour. Since Ancient times the blue gemstone represented a promise of honesty, loyalty, purity and trust. According to legend, sapphire would guard against evil and poisoning.
