The YouTube lifestyle sell-ebrities aren’t happy



Emma Chamberlain

“I just don’t like being famous. You’re lying to people to try to make them seem like you’re their friend for the sole purpose of selling things to them.”

This is a worthwhile read from Vox, on the tenuous career of YouTube influencers, of whom a minority make a profitable career from selling their lifestyle to followers, while the rest are burnt out, broke, cancelled and more. Read more here.

Shop the post: The Outnet summer classics



The Outnet

Just putting together a few classic picks from The Outnet* as we segue into full-on summer mode. I was a bit late publishing this, so all the amazing The Row shirts and flat pumps have sold out but it’s worth signing up to the Outnet newsletter for next time.

In the meantime, there are lots of other summer staples to explore. White and cream midi dresses* seem to be a thing, to wear with The Outnet’s own Iris & Ink flats* or Jimmy Choo Mary Janes*. If you’re looking for shorts, try these black cotton-jacquard* ones from Joseph or the impeccable cream linen-blend twill* from Iris & Ink.

Lightweight knitwear is a must for unpredictable summer evenings – the short-sleeve ivory cashmere top* and charcoal cashmere roll neck* from N.Peal have a relaxed Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy vibe, accompanied by TOD’s versatile pebbled leather tote* (in a choice of neutrals) and elevated by Roger Vivier’s gamine patent-leather pump*.

Also noteworthy – this little black Aspesi crepe maxi dress* and Rag & Bone’s boyfriend jeans in ecru*. Oh, and the Roger Vivier cigarette case* – just because. You’re welcome.

Highsnobiety’s Gatezero airport fashion store concept launches in Copenhagen



Gatezero CPH Copenhagen - airport fashion

“You could be at one of the best airports in the world and not be able to find a single brand that you normally shop at in the city you live in. For example, how is it possible that there’s no Aesop or Byredo? These are not niche brands anymore.”

Are blankets the new scarves?



Begg x Co Buce McLean blanket art

My blanket fetish continues, and it looks like I’m not the only one. In the last few years, thanks to you-know-what, there’s been a huge rise in home comfort cravings with blankets and throws, not to mention soothing scented candles and tactile cushions, all attracting our attention in the absence of the human touch.

Weighted blankets were big news, but for the more aesthetically inclined, it’s all about the rise of the art blanket and the fashion blanket. (more…)
