Guest post: What the menswear buyers bought for AW12




It’s menswear day at London Fashion Week today, a slightly odd bit of scheduling as the men’s buying season is pretty much over by now. No worries though, menswear is getting its very own mini UK fashion week(end) from 15th -17th June, which will mean designers can maximise their chances of making the order books for SS13. (more…)



Shaun Samson is one of Selfridges’ Bright Young Things



Woo hoo, Shaun Samson menswear, now available at Selfridges… If you’re down Oxford Street way, be sure to check out the Bright Young Things windows, showcasing the work of London’s best up-and-comer talent. To go with his collection, Shaun’s window has a Mexicana theme with rainbow coloured Piñata letters spelling out his name. Sweet!

Buy it now: Kiehl’s crackers




Right, I’m officially obsessed with beauty-themed Christmas crackers. There has been a bit of a stampede for the Lancome advent calendar (I told you to be quick) but the Lancome Christmas crackers are still in stock. But look here, what about these adorable Kiehl’s lip balm crackers? Each £19 cracker contains three Kiehl’s #1 lip balms in original, coconut and vanilla flavours. Best crack on if you want one.

 



Buy it now: Selfridges Lancome miniatures advent calendar




Remember the super duper beauty advent calendar from Selfridges that the blogersphere went mad about at ‘Christmas in July’? Well it’s on sale now. Containing a ‘best of’ mix of miniature products including a YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mini lipstick, a 30ml Kiehl’s Crème De Corps and a 2ml Lancome Hypnôse Classic Mascara (and we all know Lancome’s mascaras are the best), these won’t stick around for long.

I also think these Lancome beauty crackers are a genius idea and perfect for a girly Christmas lunch. Six crackers contain Génifique 7ml, Visionnaire 7ml, Bi–Facil 30ml, L’Absolu Rouge Mini, Juicy Tube 7ml, Hypnôse Mascara Mini, a festive hat and a beauty tip – not bad for £38. (No word if Chanel will ever do something similar but one lives in hope.)
