Levi’s Teams Up With Hailey Bieber For Christmas
For its holiday collection, Levi’s has teamed up with model/fashion icon Hailey Bieber in a campaign that sees her discussing her personal style. Shot by Steve Dance, the holiday campaign watches Hailey style two of her favourite pairs of jeans by the label – the ‘70s High Rise and the Math Club Slacks – celebrating the ‘90s grunge aesthetic that informs her style. Showcasing the jeans styled with fitted crop tops under oversized shirting, simple layering and statement socks, it proves that often the most standout outfits are the most minimal – that is, of course, as long as they include some trusted Levi’s!
KARL LAGERFELD Announces Gender-Neutral Collaboration With Cara Delevingne
KARL LAGERFELD has announced that next year we can expect a collaboration with Cara Delevingne. The iconic actress, model, singer, writer and activist cultivated a close friendship with the late designer that ran way deeper than their muse and artist relationship, so it is only fitting that the iconic fashion house has chosen to continue Cara’s relationship with the brand by way of this collaboration, aptly titled CARA LOVES KARL LOVES CARA. Launching in September 2022, the collaboration will see Cara working alongside design director Hun Kim to develop the designs, which will feature sustainable materials while focusing on inclusive, gender-neutral pieces that reflect the values both Cara and the brand are passionate about. We can’t wait!
SKIMS Makes Going To Bed a Glamorous Affair
Put the same amount of effort into your nighttime outfit as you do your daytime fit with the help of SKIMS’ new silk collection. Delicately silky and soft with a touch of stretch, the iconic label’s silk pyjamas are effortlessly elevated by way of their rich tones and alluring composition. Offering five new silhouettes – from a shirt and trousers to a slinky dress – all available in three coveted colours, the new high-shine, shimmering collection ensures feminine silhouettes and comfort go hand-in-hand. Perfect for the winter months where all we want to do is spend long mornings in comfortable and beautiful pyjamas – they’re going straight on our Christmas list!
Introducing Fruity Booty’s AW21 Collection
We are so excited to introduce you to one of our favourite lingerie brands: Fruity Booty. Female-led, conscious and sustainable, the label ticks all our boxes! Aware that lingerie offerings are often either highly sexual or highly functional, the label is dedicated to bridging that gap, creating pieces that are fresh, stylish and comfortable. Their Autumn/Winter collection is inspired by London, so you’ll find the playful tweed designs and classic checks that are traditionally used in outerwear reimagined across the collection’s 100% recycled mesh lingerie. The label produces limited runs of its products to keep in line with their sustainability pledge, so be sure to check them out soon!
Alife And Timberland Offer An Update To An Iconic Boot
Timberland’s iconic utility-inspired boots get a welcome (and exciting!) update thanks to its recent collaboration with Alife, the New York-based multi-faceted lifestyle company. Bringing a touch of NYC culture to the heritage brand, Alife updates the original Timberland 6” Premium Waterproof boot; adding an extra inch and a half of height by way of a double padded collar. The result? A pair that carries the recognisable DNA of Timberland while feeling decidedly fresh and new thanks to Alife’s urban touch on telling stories about the city it is based in. They’re the perfect addition to your street-style wardrobe, so grab them while you can!

Alexandra Kay Releases Its Time To Breathe Diffuser
Alexandra Kay – which is renowned for its aromatherapy essential oils – has released the Time To Breathe ceramic diffuser just in time for the winter months where we need it most. Emitting a fine, fresh mist of essential oil blend at the touch of a button, it’s the best way to experience the therapeutic properties of essential oils. Plus, it’s finished with a soft LED light that emits a gentle glow, adding a calming ambience to your room. 10% net profit is donated to The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK charity with every purchase of this product, which makes the venture even more wonderful. Now all that’s left for you to do is decide which essential oil you’ll go for – we’ve got our eyes on the Time to Smile blend, how about you?
