Streets of Fashion Week SS19

From New York to London, Milan and Paris later this month, Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2019 season is currently in full swing. While it’s still early to conclude the overall runway trends for the coming year, there is, as always, a lot to be learnt just from looking at the show-goers who are flooding the streets of the world’s major fashion capitals. Printed maxi dresses have been trending heavily this Spring/Summer, and it’s going to get even more popular in the season ahead. Belted ones are proving to be the most favoured choice for most: go for those with long bell sleeves for extra elegance, or ones that come with puffed shoulders for an 80s vibe. Don’t forget to cap off the look...

5 things we love about Piaget’s Limelight Gala Milanese watch

Whether you’re looking to add something new and sparkly to your wrist or buy a special gift for the lucky lady in your life, here are 5 reasons we’re head over heels for this dazzler. 1. It’s a timepiece with history. The 1970s may not be considered a golden age for style, but the chic Limelight Gala first debuted in 1972. Resurrected by Piaget in 2013, the new edition dropped the original model’s white gold woven strap and replaced it with a satin strap. For the 2016 edition, Piaget have returned to metal to produce an elegant Milanese mesh bracelet made from 18K pink or white gold. A vintage design with contemporary updates—what’s not to love? 2.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 Runway Show

This season, New York Fashion Week went out with a bang that was a bit louder than usual: The always-on-time Marc Jacobs began his show nearly 90 minutes late, and the rumor mill quickly got to work weaving its juiciest explanations for the uncharacteristic delay.   One such piece of gossip — that Jacobs had held up his show intentionally so to spite NYFW's newly minted closer, Rihanna's Savage x Fenty — was as pervasive as it was scandalous. Jacobs's runway presentations are guaranteed theatrics, but this rumble was a new kind of drama. While the collection was, rightfully, critically acclaimed, the backlash from some very well-spoken showgoers remained fiery. Late on Thursday night, however, Jacobs came forward to apologize via a lengthy Instagram caption that, while thoughtful, didn't explain why the...

Neo Noir Chic – H&M Studio A/W18 womenswear

H&M Studio releases its A/W18 womenswear collection, entitled  “Neo Noir Chic”, and inspired by the original cult 90’s series Twin Peaks. The dream logic aesthetic is writ large over a collection of ladylike statement pieces and borrowed-from-the-boys wardrobe classics.   Fifties movie icons, with their era-defining looks, provide further nostalgic stimulus, yielding precise, sculpting wool dresses and nipped-in coated cotton trench coats as well as indigo precision denim jackets, sturdy turn-up jeans and a grunge-infused viscose-silk suit. Cosy, hairy cropped knits and elegant neck-tie blouses are equally key pieces. “With H&M Studio, we love the play between the feminine and masculine and this year we added a 50’s twist – there are ultra-feminine options combined with mannish details and super-classic pieces that invite you...

Glossier’s Zit Stick Treatment

Plenty of people think that Glossier is a beauty brand made for people who already have "good skin." For instance, Glossier's Stretch Concealer is lightweight, never gets cake-y, and gives skin a healthy allover glow — but when it comes to covering up big blemishes or discoloration, the formula is just too sheer Luckily, with the arrival of the brand's latest launch, you might not have any more blemishes to cover. On Sept. 6, Glossier is launching Zit Stick, a $14, travel-friendly gel spot treatment that promises to reduce the size of pimples in as little as three hours.
