From £245, the collection spans across large, medium and cabin suitcase styles, as well as offering luggage tags, straps and packing cubes to complete your perfect travel companion. 

The Summer’s Most coveted SPF

If you are a fan of their yummy-smelling sprays and body creams you are going to love the newly launched Sol de Janeiro suncream range. The Rio Radiance collection combines Brazilian botanicals and active ingredients such as niacinamide.  

The SPF 50 mineral body lotion is lightweight yet moisturising.  As you would imagine it smells delicious, we are big fans because it doesn’t leave a greasy film, or a white residue unlike most mineral sunscreens.  Stock up for summer as this is going to fly off the shelves.  RRP £40.

The Shroom Boom Continues

Choose from, Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps and Tremella, and level up your energy, skin, focus and sleep.  Don’t just take our word for it, DIRTEA has amassed a legion of high-profile brand fans, including Idris Elba, Charlotte Tilbury, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Rita Ora.  RRP £29.99 for 30 servings or £99.99 as a boxset available from DIRTEA.

When I think of metallics, I think of fall and holiday (parties!). Last week, my focus was on silver (shoes and accessories). This week, I look at metallic beauty offerings in different shades (and packaging too!). Here are some beauty products to elevate your fall beauty routine and add a spark to the dreariest of winter days.

ICONIC London Glaze Crayons

This dual-ended eyeshadow crayon with glitter glaze and pearlescent pigments comes in 12 shades. Use each side alone, together or with any of your other favourite eye shadows (or other eyeliners, like this Kajal Duo) to create smouldering, shimmering eye look. The best part – there is no need for brushes.

KIKO Milano Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette

Launching on November 2, this 12-shade palette goes on creamy and hydrating for long-lasting wear. The holiday-perfect metallic finish makes it a great gift, but you might want to get one for yourself too!

ICONIC London Kissed By The Sun

A 3 in 1 multi-dimensional, wear-it-your-way glow-giver, this product uniquely blends the warmth of a bronzer, the brilliance of a blush and the radiance of a highlighter to give your skin that ‘kissed by the sun’ sheen. Guaranteed to give you that beach glow year-round.

NYX Butter Gloss Beneath the Wreath

Holiday is when all the fun beauty sets come out. This is set is no exception. 14 full-sized, best-selling glosses from NYX. From tiramisu, cinnamon roll, to clear, and even a few limited-edition butter gloss swirls, there’s a shade for everyone!

LAPCOS 24K Gold Hydra Collagen Face Mask

The innovative two-piece mask provides full face coverage for an entirely revitalized and illuminated appearance. Packed with antioxidant-dense, skin-brightening ingredients, the secret behind the formula is 24K Gold, celebrated for centuries for its anti-aging, skin-plumping efficacies. Pure Gold helps strengthen the skin barrier to make it less susceptible to environmental factors, infusing your complexion with a boost of brightness.

Patchology Perfect Ten

This innovative hand mask uses self-warming technology to provide a luxurious spa experience in the comfort of your own home. Perfect Ten Hand Mask locks in your natural body heat to allow the macadamia-infused formula inside to better penetrate the skin. The result is deeply moisturized hands that feel soft, smooth, and revitalized. The Perfect Ten Hand Mask is enriched with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, macadamia oil, coconut oil, and rosehip oil. These ingredients work together to hydrate and soothe dry, rough hands while also softening cuticles.

Dazzle Dry – Juniper

Perfect for fall, Juniper is a dark shimmering metallic pine green nail shade. Use exclusively with the award-winning Dazzle Dry four-step nail care system. The system is formulated with the signature Nail Prep, Base Coat, Lacquer and Top Coat. Together, it provides the fastest-drying, longest-lasting, natural nail treatment that is both nontoxic and vegan.

Perfect Marc Jacobs Charm

Introducing Perfect Marc Jacobs Charm, the Collector Edition. Featuring the original Perfect Eau de Parfum scent and reimagined with a dazzling metallic shine and opulent finish, this limited-edition fragrance continues to draw inspiration from Marc Jacobs’ personal mantra, illustrating self-love, authenticity, and the joy you can find in being yourself. The original scent’s key notes of rhubarb, daffodil, almond milk, cedarwood, cashmeran make a triumphant return.

Gucci Guilty Pour Femme Eau de Parfum

Continuing the chapter of #ForeverGuilty, the signature Gucci Guilty Pour Femme Eau de Parfum embody a modern declaration of self-expression and fearlessness. It opens with a smooth blend of vibrant mandora, bergamot and pink pepper. At its heart, an encompassing lilac note is enhanced with rosy and violent notes.

If you know me well, you know that I love a great manicure. I attribute it to talking with my hands. My color of choice is a super opaque white, but if I’m visiting New York, I’ll pick the latest nail design from Paintbox. Sadly, I lack a steady hand, so I usually opt for a trip to my go-to-spot with my favorite manicurist.

Unfortunately, ongoing gel polish can often do a number on your nails leaving them yellow, dry and brittle. I usually give my nails a rest (and my wallet) for a few weeks in between treatments.

Is there something you can do in between nail salon treatments that will give you that polished look at home? You bet! It’s called Dazzle Dry.

Dazzle Dry was created by Dr. Vivian Valenty, a Filipino Bio-Organic Chemist, more than 14 years ago. The system is formulated with a ground-breaking polymer technology that enables the polish to expand and contract with the nail. This means polish stays on longer without peeling or chipping. The non-toxic polish is free of acetone, toluene, formaldehyde, TPHP, nitrocellulose (which causes yellowing of the nail plate and degrades polish), camphor, resin, ethyl tosylamide, phthalates, xylene, MEK and never is tested on animals.

Dr. Valenty, has a vast career in the sciences that includes being a research scientist at the New York State Department of Health and a research and developer at Dupont and General Electric. She has developed a molecule at Dupont to replace phosphates in detergent using carbohydrates and soybeans, as well as developing a patented polymer for GE’s electronics and semiconductors.

This easy to use 4-step system gives you the salon look without the price, time or the harmful chemical residuals. Even for a person who is not great with a nail polish brush (Read: Polish on other parts of my toe and uneven/streaky coats), the number of coats you apply actually mitigates all the mishaps giving you a smooth application. The best part – it dries in under five minutes without the use of fans or lights. It is a long-lasting polish – with a manicure lasting up to 14 days and a pedicure lasting up to 30 days.

The 4-step Nail System starts with Nail Prep, a Base Coat, your choice of Lacquer (150 colors available!) and finishes with a top coat which comes in high gloss or matte finish. The polish can be removed with any nail polish remover, yet I love Remove Non- Acetone – Lacquer Remover. Enhanced with Spearmint and Eucalyptus essential oils the Lacquer Remover helps to moisturize nails and cuticles and as an extra bonus, it smells fantastic!

Give it a go and dazzle yourself with perfect polish every time with Dazzle Dry.

We all know Earth Day should be more than just a single day. That’s just a fact. To move the needle on any sort of systemic environmental change, a company should invest in these social responsibility measures from the start. It should not be a disingenuous afterthought.

A popular term you many have heard floating around in the fashion world is deadstock, which is a way of upcycling. Deadstock refers to existing fabric/material that did not sell, was produced in surplus or from previous collections that can end up in the landfill if not reused. Gaining in popularity, a British company is simply named Deadstock Fabrics. Companies use deadstock and re-create these landfill-destined fabrics into brand new products. What’s old is new again for these brands helping to slow the roll of the fast fashion engine. Below I am listing a few of the more notable one’s for you to follow:

Boyish: 

Who knew that making clothes from deadstock saves about 10,000 pounds of CO2 emission each year? Jordan Nodarse, the Founder and Designer and his team at Boyish did. Designed in Los Angeles, Boyish uses ethical and sustainable practices when developing and manufacturing their jeans. They hunt for vintage rolls of eco-friendly fabrics to create their jeans and full collection of apparel. I myself adore the Joaquin, which can serve double duty and be worn as a dress or a jacket. To certify their sustainable efforts, Boyish has invested in metrics that reflect this effort. To achieve this, they focus on using a transparency supply chain platform, Retraced, utilizing the international Global Recycle Standard (GRS) that verifies the third-party certification of recycled content and finally measuring/scoring their sustainability performance through the Higg Index (developed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition). The Boyish site also has a Consignment Shop that ensures that your pre-worn items will also have another life. In return, you earn money towards a new pair. Every purchase on Boyish is a win-win, as they plant a tree for every purchase on our website through 1% for the Planet and One Tree Planted.

Gaâla: 

Sustainable French fashion brand Gaâla was founded by husband-and-wife duo, Kelly de Gaâlon and Alexander Zhalezka. Being one of 8 siblings, Kelly is not a stranger to upcycling clothing. Hand-me-downs were simply a way of life. Cut to her time in Shanghai, where Kelly took her hobby and expanded it into a career. Developing Gaâla to fill a gap in the market; classic French styles made from high quality fabric sold at accessible prices. This is thanks to their team of talented tailors and cutters, who work in the small-scale workshop with ethical standards including compensation with an above living wage.

Maintaining a quality standard, Gaâla handpicks their deadstock material from around the world. From Italian fashion houses for the luxury leftover cotton, viscose and wool to Hangzhou, China, for the traditional silk. 

All Things Mochi: 

Years ago, I came across All Things Mochi and their collection that celebrated cultural, traditional methods of embroidery all around the world. I purchased a beautiful green off the shoulder top complete with embroidered mirrors on it, and it’s definitely one of the most unique items in my closet. It’s been almost a decade since All Things Mochi started showcasing different cultures through the handicraft of local artists for a contemporary market. Since then, founder and Designer of Mochi, Ayah Tabari and her team have re-framed their business’ fast fashion model to a slowed down, refined approach. All Things Mochi now has three collections: Mochi Reconstructed, Mochi Signatures and Mochi Finds.

Mochi Reconstructed, includes repurposed pieces and Mochi fabrics from previous collections combined into one-off creations. Mochi Signatures, includes unique favorites from Mochi’s most coveted collections (much like my mirrored top). Finally, Mochi Finds are a curation of vintage classics. Same Mochi flair with and fresh new focus.

BAGGU: 

Ever since my good friend gifted me a reusable nylon bag last year, which I carry in my work bag daily – I am hooked. Since then, I have purchased a few of their well-designed/fitting masks (the adjustable nose piece, straps and neck underlay makes it the most comfortable ones I own to date!). BAGGU was created to eliminate unnecessary waste, and has made a commitment to never incinerate or landfill their deadstock products.

I find myself frequently perusing their online store for products in their coveted strawberry print. I also love that BAGGU launched a series of deadstock bags using half and half prints. They also have reusable bags are assembled from one continuous piece of recycled nylon material, with the neck of the bag used to construct the carrying pouch. And when your bag is all worn out – you can recycle it with BAGGU for a discount off a new one.

It’s the end of summer, which means it’s almost fall time(!). Back to school – back to work, back to a solid routine is just around the corner and of course, fall fashion.

Even Vogue is onto some great totes. Check out the roundup here!

Almost 8 years ago, I bought my black Balenciaga tote bag and it has been my workhorse ever since. For starters, it fits my laptop and a pair of shoes which is valuable, if you are commuting. It’s narrower than it is wide, which can pose a little bit of an issue when accessing belongings at the bottom of the black bag. Yet, if in a crowded space it’s also great for the safety of your valuables. The thick leather is a tad bit heavy, but it has taken a beating over the years without breaking down.

Looking for a great tote for your life’s adventures? Here are my top selects that can take you from the office to the outdoors, sorted by material:

Leather: You really can’t go wrong with a leather bag. If you are wondering – Yes, it’s worth the investment. Leather bags can stand the test of time, being both fashionable and functional. In fact, over time, the leather can get soft and supple with use. 

The Kingly Tote by Smythson comes in super soft, Pavilion leather making it an ideal bag to roll up in your suitcase. The Pavilion leather is lightweight and flexible with a suede underside, not requiring a liner. Like their paper shopping bags, the Kingly is found in their iconic Smythson signature Nile Blue. 

Strathberry’s S Cabas has comfortable thick shoulder straps and a zippered top closure. The side pocket helps to keep things organized and it’s adorned with the S logo and gold-tone hardware. Shown in Tan, it is available in 2 other classic colorways including bottle green and black.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie Maxi Tote will be your next staple in this go-with-everything Black colorway. The quilted leather chevron pattern can bring a subtle texture to any outfit. The antique brass metal chain shoulder straps and magnetic snap-fastening in front add a touch of glam. 

Leather and Canvas: The best of both worlds. A tote in both leather and canvas gives you the durability of leather with the semi-casualness of canvas. Don’t forget that wax coated canvas functions well in rain.

The Viator Tote in Gray/Tan by Portland’s Orox Leather can function as both a weekend getaway or a work briefcase. The travel strap along the side of the bag secures it to your trolley suitcase; while the interior sleeve helps keep 13-inch laptops and documents secure.

This roomy Kate Sheridan Waxed Canvas Tote is found on the curated online site, TOAST. It’s made from waxed British cotton canvas. Though the bag is quite generous at 19 inches in width, you can use the press studs at the sides to adjust the shape. 

Woven: Looking for something as functional as leather without the price point? These woven bags are a great way to carry a large number of belongings and accent your outfit at the same time.

Keeping traditional hand block stamping alive, this Pink City Prints Scarlet Posy Beach Bag is a fun way to add some pattern into your outfit. The cotton base is structured enough to stand upright, perfect for your next picnic in the park or beach day. It’s fully reversible with the Candy Lolita print inside.

Anything tweed, like this Urban Revivo Tweed Tote Bag in blue checkered pattern, is Fall fashion at its best. Think school-girl cool. This highly structured tote will let you keep all things safe – from paper to take out boxes which can open at a moment’s notice. 

Utility: Here are the true workhorses of the group. In the vein of the blue IKEA shopping bags (you know the one!), just more fashionable. These are the bags that you can throw around and still look great at the end of the day. 

What do you call a cross between a backpack and a tote? The Cotopaxi Todo Convertible 16L Tote – Cada Día. Carry it by the shoulder straps, or tuck them in when using the tote handles. Its padded 15-inch laptop sleeve and a fleece-lined pocket makes sure valuables are protected. Perfect for those commutes on the tube.

Part of the new F.A.R. (For All Routes) outdoor travel collection from AWAY, this F.A.R. 45L Tote is an organized way to stash all your essentials for work or play. The bag itself is made from lightweight, high-strength polyester and the webbing top cinch closure adjusts to how much you pack. As an added bonus, it meets requirements for most major airlines as carry-on luggage.

Just like you, we want our clothes to make us feel as good as how we look. This is why we’re all about shining the light on the sustainable fashion brands that are changing the fashion scene, one consciously-made garment at a time.

Our Fashion Editor Hannah Tan-Gillies has rounded a few of our top eco-friendly shopping picks so you can maximise your trans-seasonal style and minimise your carbon footprint too.

Lyle & Scott

British knitwear brand Lyle & Scott, who hold a Royal Warrant for knitwear, has done an incredible job of modernising its range for the new age. Founded in Hawick Scotland 150 years ago, this heritage brand has a pretty cool womenswear line, made up of easy-to-wear, casual and contemporary leisurewear is made with 100% organic cotton.

Not only has Lyle & Scott made its way to our sustainable fashion radar, but it has also surely carved out a permanent spot in our pre-fall wardrobes too. Oh — and did we mention that Lyle & Scott has several cool collabs to watch out for too?

Inuikki

Sustainable luxury footwear brand INUIKKI offers a range of contemporary footwear that was designed in Switzerland and made in Europe. All of INUIKKI’s products are made with organic materials and balance form and function with timeless style. Whether you are comfy in a pair of classic sneakers or well-protected in a pair of all-terrain boots – you know that your Inuikki footwear is made to last.

Gaâla

Sustainable French brand Gaâla is a favourite of our Fashion Editor Hannah Tan-Gillies. This brand has just released a vintage-inspired capsule collection with model/photographer/artist Shirinita Altsohn which exudes that effortless French girl style and takes inspiration from some of the screen sirens of the Golden Age of Cinema. We like the Corinne Dress (inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Doris Day), the Lauren Skirt, (inspired by Lauren Bacall) and the Shirin dress, inspired by the glamorous gowns of the 1930s and 1940s.

Isabel Manns

Isabel Manns is all about bright, colourful and sustainable seasonless clothing. This contemporary womenswear brand has its home in Marylebone and is underpinned by designer Isabel’s own personal commitment to building a 100% circular fashion label. Most of the prints in Isabel Mann’s beautiful silk creations were painted by Isabel herself, taking inspiration from her parent’s garden and the natural world. We love the beautiful silk dresses, tops, and skirts – made in plenty of different fabrics that can be customised to suit your personal tastes too.

Emotional World Vintage

Emotional World Vintage gives a sustainable twist to your luxury handbag game. Emotional World creates one-of-a-kind luxury handbags made with natural and original Boro patchwork, hand-crafted with traditional ‘Sashiko’ stitching methods. Circular, sustainable and with a wonderfully raw aesthetic, no two bags are alike at Emotional World, ensuring a luxury purchase that even the world’s most prestigious fashion houses can’t provide
