Seven Ways to Style a Shirt, Inspired by 90s Ad Campaigns

When asked which garment she would have liked to have been responsible for creating during a rare interview in 2012, Rei Kawakubo declared, “I would have liked to invent the plain white shirt.” And it makes perfect sense that the Comme des Garçons founder champion this seemingly humble item of clothing, for despite outward appearances, the simple button-up holds infinite sartorial possibility. Much like Kawakubo herself, the white shirt is a fashion icon, but doesn’t think of itself as such. It’s a democratic garment, taking on new meaning through the way it is worn. It is both anti-fashion and high fashion, perennially chic. So if you don’t already own one, it’s about time you go out and buy it – whether...

Why Witchcraft And The Occult Is So Hot Right Now

cover-witch

Despite the fact that it is almost 2017, the struggle for equality between the sexes is far from over. In fact, recent events like Trump’s election and Texas’ new abortion rule are two signs of a possible regression. Nevertheless, it seems that an ancient power is being harnessed to tackle the patriarchy in the form of Witchcraft. By channelling such femme energy, women have been summoning the powers of the supernatural more than ever across the world of fashion, film and music, transforming it into one of the hottest trends right now.

Here, we examine all of the witchy ways that the occult is casting us under its spell.

The Ultimate Gift for Any 90s Kid

lipsmacker-balm-vault
For most of us, Lip Smacker (you remember those ultra flavorful lip balms!) elicits some major nostalgia for the 90s, Lisa Frank, and everything else that came with it. The compact lip balm was just about the only form of makeup parents allowed before high school, which might explain why so many of us kept a healthy stash of the barely tinted balm in our backpacks. And the more tubes you had, the better. Whether you were a watermelon fan or a Dr. Pepper faithful, there’s a flavor that everyone can relate to. Now Lip Smacker has made all of our 90s dreams come true all over again with the launch of this Ultimate Lip Balm Vault ($50, lipsmacker.com). Just in...

Paris with The Fashion Playbook

IMG_4980
Last weekend I visited Paris, my favorite city in the world. I just love the Parisian way of life. Sitting outside, drinking coffee or a glass of wine whilst eating cheese. Ok, I know that’s really cliché but don’t you feel the same way? Just two days later I went on a business trip, first to Barcelona and then to Bilbao. It was my first business trip ever and I was so nervous. In the end I have to say that it was quite cool, but so exhausting. Unfortunately I didn’t really have time to see the cities at all, still I was a little bit closer to the ocean and had palm trees around. That’s something too :) I shot this...
