As far as wintry destinations are concerned Bali is no way threatened by the British Isles for those seeking sun. All the same, the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK takes readers on a journey atypical for this time of year to the summery meadows of the White Garden at Sissinghurst for a story by photographer David Slijper featuring Juju Ivanyuk. Titled “Fair Maden,” the Miranda Almond-styled story revels in all that is white lace and silk. Wild flowers positively buzz with honeybees and other meadow-dwelling fauna — December in Blighty this is not. Juju’s lightness of touch and entrancing command of the page make this ethereal story evermore sublime.
