Apart from our cover profile of designer and style aficionado Omar Khan, our September 2020 issue takes a look at the lasting influence of one of China's greatest literary figures and the family behind art and fashion publishing giant, Assouline

This month, we get up close and personal with one of Malaysia's leading figures in the luxury rugs industry, Omar Khan. With a slew of high profile clienteles such as the St Regis and Louis Vuitton, the affable bachelor believes that "Legacy is what you make it. You can learn from long-standing legacies, but I'm of a generation where things are different now. Instead, we fashion our own."

A muse for many a filmmaker, Tatler also revisits the life of one of China's most beloved 20th century literary figure, Eileen Chang. From peer politics to tumultuous familial relationships, Chang's colourful personal life seem to rival the fictional ones she authors, one of which is called Love After Love with the film adaptation of the novel to premiere at the Venice Film Festival this month.

Shedding light on an often overlooked issue, we also delve into waste management and how it can catch us by surprise if left unchecked. Through conversations with CEO of iHandal Aaron Patel, the co-founders of Klotch Cares Sarah Kedah and Nik Suzila, and CEO of Biji-Biji Initiative Juliana Adam, we learn how the ever-growing global consumption can be dealt with sustainably.

Functionality and versatility are the main keywords in today's fashion scene, with brands increasingly catering towards a more fast-paced lifestyle that demands an outfit be casual yet smart when the need arises. This concept is encapsulated no better than in Ermenegildo Zegna's Alessandro Sartori and American streetwear designer and founder of Fear of God Jerry Lorenzo's unlikely collaboration.

Then there's an in-depth look at the glamorous life of the Assouline family. Headed by Prosper and Martine Assouline, their luxury publishing business truly caters to those bookworms with a penchant for the finer things in life.
