The Headlining Looks From LFW That Will Impact How We Dress In 2021

It might not be the frenetic, fast-paced weekend of year’s past, but over the last few days, London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2021 has taken place through a series of virtual events and small, in-person press previews.  Leaving behind the spectacle, the hoards of attendees and the street-style circus we’ve grown accustomed to, this new take on fashion week has acted as a reminder of what the event is truly about: the clothes. From Burberry to Victoria Beckham, Molly Goddard to Simone Rocha, British brands proudly displayed their latest work, proving that innovation persists even through uncertain times.  For some brands we saw a heightened importance placed on the concept of escapism, creating collections filled with bright, cheerful prints and wh...

I Just Discovered This Little-Known Brand, and It’s Made the Perfect Jacket

I can tell, without looking at that little activity tab on Instagram that tells me how much time I spend on the app, that I spend too much time on the app. That said, if I did stop the scrolling, I might not stumble across gems such as Jess Meany‘s Instagram account. She’s a designer who produces the most beautiful patchwork jackets I have ever seen, amongst other items. The one-of-a-kind pieces are often pastel hued and are loosely tailored, unstructured jackets that are exactly the kind of garments I’d love to wear this autumn. I could blame the pandemic and our new love of wearing items that are less restrictive, but I actually think there are other elements at play. For a while now, I’ve been looking for more interesting pieces that I know I&...

If You’re Looking for a Forever Coat—This One Is Always a Wise Investment

There’s no doubt that the world of fashion is prone to more than just a bit of hyperbole. You’re “obsessed” or “in love” with a particular item. Everything is “fabulous,” “chic” or “iconic.” In truth, while you probably do love that fuchsia bejewelled headband right then and there, its lasting wardrobe potential is quite minimal (sorry, Blair Waldorf). But there are a few pieces that make the cut and deserve all the above over-the-top descriptions lobbied at them. One such item (or rather items) are the coats Max Mara designs for women. The Italian fashion house has created a long list of coats that really can only be described as iconic. Not only is the classic camel colour flattering for all skin tones, but the shape...

Touring Superleggera’s Aero 3 Is an Ode to an Italian Legend

Before you consider the new Touring Superleggera Aero 3, think of Carrozzaria Touring Superleggera itself, the Milanese coachbuilder and design house that thrived in the 1930s-1960s. You’re instantly prone to visions of the gorgeous, streamlined, almost fragile-looking automotive creations that emerged from its doors. Those cars often did so with Touring’s signature Superleggera or “super lightweight” construction methods, which stretch nearly paper-thin alloy panels over featherweight tubular structural frames. The first car to feature this Superleggera styling was a special 1937 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 B earmarked for the famous Mille Miglia 1000-mile open–road race occurring in the same year. It’s fitting, then, that Touring’s new Aero 3 pays a homag...

2021 Nissan Maxima Gets Feature-Filled 40th Anniversary Edition

We don’t completely agree with Nissan’s claim that the Maxima is a sport sedan—its too soft and lacks the ultimate agility that aligns with the best of that breed, but we will go along with the idea that it’s a sporty sedan. We appreciate its potent V-6 engine, well-tuned ride, and plush interior. For 2021, the Nissan Maxima gets a little but sweeter—but no sportier—thanks a new special edition celebrating the nameplate’s 40th anniversary in the U.S. We know, right—can you believe the Maxima’s been around for four decades? It indeed has, launching as a trim of the Datsun 810 in 1981 and subsequently becoming Nissan’s longest-running nameplate in America, and this special version of the current, eighth-generation car features a variety of cosmetic up...

The Denim Trend Victoria Beckham Is Backing for 2021

This week London Fashion Week has been reimagined, with small in person presentations and most shows and collections being shown digitally. Victoria Beckham was planning to host a small salon show for 15 people, however she cancelled this at the last minute saying that it no longer felt appropriate, instead sharing a video and images of the spring summer 2021 collection on her Instagram account today.  This collection was designed during lockdown, and is a tighter edit, with a total of twenty outfits, compared to the forty something shown last season. This streamlining has meant there is a focus on the core elements of the Victoria Beckham brand—throw-on beautiful dresses, elegant, classic tailoring and oversized shirts. Colour is used to add vibrancy, with pockets of lilacs...

These Are Autumn’s Top Cult Buys, According to Influencers

When you spend as much time looking at clothes as I do, you start to pick up on various, highly specific things. Whether it’s spotting an abstract print and instantly knowing which brand it belongs to or seeing the buckle of a shoe and being able to correctly identify its designer, there’s a certain encyclopaedic knowledge that comes with being a fashion editor.  Recognising trends is simply a part of the job, and as everything takes place online these days, I often find myself making subconscious mental notes of the trends and popular items I see on Instagram. From Bottega Veneta’s fringe bag collection to JW Anderson’s instantly recognisable chunky chain accessories, the fashion set seems to be gravitating towards several st...

I Was Dubious About Natural Skincare But These 15 Products Actually Work

To push myself well and truly out of my beauty comfort zone, I made a pledge with myself to take home and test all of the natural beauty products that I’ve been sent over the last few weeks; after all, there’s no better time to experiment with your beauty routine than when you’re working from home. I also chatted with as many brands as possible to find out their natural beauty recommendations. Turns out, some of the products that are already a part of my regular skincare rotation are natural and I hadn’t even realised it. Disclaimer: I’m still learning about natural beauty so, while some of these products might not be 100% natural, they all harness plant-based and natural ingredients as a major part of their formula...

Yes, Celebs Served Looks for the Virtual Emmys—Here’s What They Wore

No red carpet, no problem. Like many of us, celebrities will take any excuse to dress up for a change, and the Emmys is certainly the perfect opportunity—even if it’s virtual. Nominees are tuning in from their own homes, but that didn’t stop them from dressing to the nines. Tracee Ellis Ross, for instance, stayed true to her bold red carpet style in a gold Alexandre Vauthier dress. (Bonus points for her mini red carpet!) With heavy hitters like Reese Witherspoon, Regina King, and Jennifer Aniston nominated, the night promises to be exciting. Scroll down to see what celebrities wore to the virtual Emmys in 2020.  You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates Online. So we reimagined what a dating should be.

These Are the 7 Most Photogenic Autumn Trends, Hands Down

Street style photographer Darrel Hunter is someone I always look to for capturing the biggest trends during fashion month. With an eye for what instantly reads as photogenic, the London-based photographer’s images are an instant study of what I immediately want to add to my closet and start wearing right away. Having spotted style photos that Hunter took recently at Copenhagen Fashion Week, I was curious to hear his thoughts on the biggest emerging autumn trends on his radar and what we can expect to see more of for the season ahead. From sleek leather pieces to the colours that are taking over to the suiting silhouettes we’ll be seeing more of in 2020, Hunter is voicing his thoughts about the photogenic autumn trends—both on and off the street style scene. Here, see w...

League of Legends Debuts “Worlds” 2020 Theme Featuring Jeremy McKinnon of A Day to Remember

Every year, the international video game behemoth League of Legends releases an anthem in honor of its annual World Championship, referred to in shorthand as “Worlds.” The game’s developer, Riot Games, has an in-house music team that actually creates each anthem and chooses the star collaborators to be featured on the yearly singles. In the past, the team recruited the help of Zedd, The Glitch Mob, and Imagine Dragons, among others. While each iteration has a slightly different theme, the anthems are all decidedly epic, channeling the immense magnitude of the international esports event.  The “Worlds” 2020 theme is no exception to this rule, as Riot Games recruited three high-profile collaborators to bring the story of the tournam...
