The much awaited Michael Kors Make-up has finally found its way over here. Building on his famous aesthetic, the make-up line follows three strict personality traits; sexy, sporty and glam. But really it’s all about the glam, judging by the statuesque gold packaging. (more…)
What’s the verdict on Oliver Spencer’s new wowmenswear AW13 collection? I’m getting vaguely APC-ish vibes which is no bad thing.

But the biker-detailed utility jacket (£150) and leather-panelled coat (£200) are probably your best bet for cost-per-wear versatility.
