On my radar: Rejina Pyo X Projekt Produkt



Rejina Pyo sunglasses

“We live in an overstimulating market which presents customers with new choices every week. Rejina Pyo is not concerned with promoting quick or short-term trends, instead we are focused on building long term relationships and evolving with our wearers over time.”

Wise and timely words from British brand Rejina Pyo, whose AW19 show is one of my most-looked-forward-to collections of this weekend’s LFW shows. Pyo is the thinking woman’s designer, our very own London version of Lemaire. or Phoebe Philo’s Celine. She also does damn good eyewear, which is another essential Fashion Week component.

I’m fully on board with these graphic shapes and colours for SS19, a collaboration with PROJEKT PRODUKT. Even though my wardrobe tastes lean to simple silhouettes and classic colours, I’m always happy to throw on something a bit louder when it comes to sunglasses (yep, even if it’s cloudy outside).

Rejina Pyo X Projekt Produkt is available from Rejina Pyo and Net-a-Porter.

Bulk buy and long tail – can Wardrobe NYC work?



Wardrobe NYC capsule wardrobe puffa


Wardrobe NYC
, a new concept for fashion, works by delivering pieces in ‘packs’ rather than individually. So rather than buying a jacket or a top, you’re committed to buying a bulk set of clothes that work together.

Crucially, the design is immaculately considered for the fad-averse gentlewoman (or man) who just wants good clothes. Behind the concept are Australian designer Josh Goot and Louis Vuitton stylist Christine Centenera. (more…)



From the vaults: Levi’s Engineered Jeans (they’re back!)



Levi's Engineered Jeans SS19

Levi’s has done it again with its new Levi’s Engineered Jeans collection. (OK, not that new, if you remember them from the first time round in 1999.) 20 years ago, Levi’s brought out a unique darted and twisted seamed jean that was a radical departure from its classic Americana silhouettes. Strange as it was, it caught on instantly and was widely copied for a few seasons.

This spring, Levi’s has revived the cuts with a special edition reissue for men and women. (more…)



Perfect pairing: matte meets shine at Chanel beauty SS19



Chanel beauty SS19 Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick

What do we think is going to be the overriding beauty aesthetic when we look back over the 2010s? Will it be the contoured-to-the-hilt perfection of the Huda Beauty woman, or the ‘natural’ no make-up vibe of Glossier? They’ve risen in parallel but I feel the hyper-filtered, beauty shtick has reached its nadir making it the decade-defining look that we’ll remember. Which leaves the more sympathetic ‘real skin’ aesthetic to continue into the 2020s.

Certainly it’s nice to see the beauty look from Chanel SS19 putting some emphasis on shine and luminosity than the unforgiving uber-mattes that were everywhere last year. In particular, Chanel is pushing its Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick (£33), an all purpose ‘wet glow’ solid balm in a clear (‘Transparent’) or an oyster (‘Sculpting’) shade to dew-ify eyelids, lips, cheekbones and brow bones. I’m definitely up for some ‘wet glow’ lid shine. (more…)
