Happy October! We have made it to another Friday and another month! Oh, how time flies. This week the temperature has dropped ever so slightly, so here at FROW, we are getting rather giddy at the idea of getting out our trusted winter boots and chunky socks. With the change in the seasons comes a change of wardrobe needs, so we have a hefty selection of new autumn fashion releases for you to browse through as well as some sweet newness for your self-care routine. Finally, we have some heart-warming news about a specialised breast cancer awareness centre in London which has amazing values and goals. So, sit back, grab a cuppa, and dig your teeth into this week’s FROW News!
Atelier VM Presents Earrings That You Won’t Want To Take Off
As we move into the colder months and start thinking about our Christmas party ensembles, it would be amiss to not mention the new and exciting jewellery drops that have happened this past week. First on our radar – and something we have been so excited to tell you about! – is Atelier VM’s latest release – the Cristal Earrings. Shaped like a small lantern, the Cristal Earring is crafted in 18kt yellow gold and suspended from a delicate chain which simultaneously infuses the piece with a contemporary touch while aligning it with the brand’s timeless aesthetic. Dedicated to creating pieces that will be with you for a lifetime, the Italian label creates pieces that don’t just enliven your outfit, they enliven your soul. We can’t wait to wear ours all season!
Riley Studios Introduces Its First Ever 100% Recycled Shirt!
Aside from partywear, another reason we cannot wait for Autumn to get into full swing is because of our love affair with all things comfy. Luckily, Riley Studio has released a 100% recycled flannel shirt, meaning we can stay comfy and be sure we’ve done our part for the environment all at once. Made from a blend of recycled cotton and recycled polyester, with a production process that uses no water or harmful chemicals, the shirt gets a massive thumbs up in the eyes of the environment. Plus, it’s the perfect utilitarian shape, too! What could be better?
Suiting That Never Goes Out Of Style
Speaking of perfect additions to your autumnal edit, The Fold continues to impress us with their recent drop of tailored pieces. As many of us prepare ourselves to swap the sofa for our trusted office chair, it is incredibly fitting that The Fold – a brand dedicated to creating smart and sophisticated workwear for the modern woman – is at the fore of our minds. With checked blazers, wide-leg trousers and pencil dresses, the collection boasts something for everyone, so be sure to check them out!
What’s A Suit Without A Shirt?
This collaboration is one we have been excited about for a while – Savile Row women’s tailors The Deck and Jermyn Street bespoke shirtmaker’s Turnbull & Asser have joined forces to create a limited-edition collection of coveted shirts. Inspired by formal menswear, the shirts exhibit the labels’ exceptional quality and attention to detail by way of their expert fit and whimsical detailing. Despite their heavy formalwear rooting, why not try styling yours with a midi skirt and trainers for an off-duty approach?
New Modest Fashion Brand Alert!
After founder Maryam Khan noticed there was a gap in the market for stylish, high-quality modest clothing, she set out to make a change. Enter: DASKA, an inclusive label that aims to remove the stigma around modest dressing. Reassuring women that they can – and should! – feel beautiful no matter how they decide to dress, the label offers exceptional clothing and a confidence boost all at once. Introducing timeless silhouettes, playful patterns and a bright colour palette (all crafted from environmentally responsible materials!) the label is bound to become your favourite. The website has launched today, so get it before it’s gone!
Urania’s Children & The Heavenly Garden Launches Gender-Neutral Perfume
Luxury perfume label Urania’s Children & the Heavenly Garden is releasing its first gender-fluid perfume line! In keeping with the label’s dedication to embracing the love of the body in all its entirety, its focus on gender-fluid scents allows for your individual identity to be embraced in all its beauty, rather than considered something of a hinderance (hear, hear!). The fragrances – Queer Magic, Lance and Mandoral – are crafted from essential oils and naturally derived raw materials, resulting in exquisite scents that make you feel like the best version of yourself.
The Body Shop Gets Ready For Autumn With New Launches
As much as we love big winter coats and new jumpers, we think that one of the best parts of the season is getting home from a long day battling the elements and getting into a steaming hot bath. Luckily for us, The Body Shop has just launched a Vanilla Pumpkin range which tickles our senses (and our tastebuds). From the Fizzing bath Bomb to the Whipped Body Butter, you’ll be left feeling clean, moisturised, and as sweet as a treat! If that’s not enough for you, the brand has also released pumpkin flavoured additions to its all-year-round collection, so why not add the Pumpkin Instant Radiance In-Shower mask to your routine too?
Nudea Is Re-Launching Its Signature Collection!
One for the sustainable underwear fans – Nudea, the carbon-neutral underwear brand, is celebrating its 2nd birthday by re-launching its signature Blush Pink collection, and this time it’s made from 100% recycled fabric! Comprising three silhouettes: The Lift Balcony Bra, The Easy Does it Bralette and The High Leg Brief, the fabulous pink collection ensures comfort doesn’t compromise on fit or style. Furthermore, this month, the label will be generating donations to breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel!, so you can be sure that your purchase is helping make a difference.
Breast Cancer Support Centre Opens With The Help Of Elizabeth Hurley
As many of you will know, October is breast cancer awareness month. This week saw the opening of Future Dreams House, a wonderful space in London where people affected by breast cancer can get vital physical and emotional support from a wealth of professionals and form networks with people who have the same lived experiences. The House was opened by Elizabeth Hurley – Global Ambassador for The Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Campaign – and proves to already be a spot where women can come together, with other guests including Lauren Mahon, founder of Girl vs. Cancer. It felt right to end this week’s piece on this lovely plan to bring women in such a magnificent way – after all, here at FROW, we are all about coming together in times of need.
