Chloë Sevigny launches vintage collection for Vestiaire Collective

The actress and style icon, Chloë Sevigny has collaborated on a collection with the luxury resale site, Vestiare Collective, known as the Vintage Collection. When speaking about Sevigny, the brand described her as “Vestiaire Collective’s vintage muse because she has always been such a huge champion of vintage and has a wonderful, unexpected way of wearing vintage that can only come from deep understanding and love of fashion from past decades. She is the ultimate vintage icon”.

In total, the partnered line contains 102 items selected by the American actress, featuring legging boots circa 2000 from Maison Martin Margiela and a pair of floral Yves Saint Laurent earrings. Despite the designer label, all the products are still second hand so prices range from $75 to $4,500.

Kate Moss designs first jewellery collection

Kate Moss is revered the world over for her style and now her designs can now be worn around our necks, hanging from our ears or on one (or more) of our fingers. The top model released a new collection with the jeweller Ara Vartanian, who is known for his innovative pieces in the industry, such as the inverted diamond and the three-finger rings. 18-carat gold, diamond, red garnet and amethyst are some of the exclusive materials used in the collection, with prices starting at £700.

After a long friendship, Moss and Vartanian decided to start this new project last year. The jeweller’s style helped the British model to identify the purpose of the range, stating it was “to create pieces that have meaning and that you can wear every day”. In the same way, Kate was also an inspiration for Vartanian. The jeweller used a red garnet in many of his pieces, “because it’s Kate’s birthstone”.

Louis Vuitton features Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto in its Cruise collection

This week it’s Japan’s turn to unfold the catwalks for Louis Vuitton to unveil its new Cruise collection. Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquière worked in collaboration with Kansai Yamamoto on the brand’s latest designs. Some of the pieces have an obvious Asiatic air, provided by strong angles and layered prints combined with some Old Western touches such as cowboy boots.

Japanese motifs were also present on shiny dresses and we’re sure that some of the jackets would have the power to make us feel like a real samurai. Louis Vuitton seems to be up to date with the trends, as it has incorporated the “naked shoes” in an ankle boot version to its collection. See our favourite looks from the show in the slideshow below.

Mindfulness is now achievable for everyone with Primark’s new beauty collection

The fast-fashion giant has introduced 6 new members to its PS… beauty range, and they’re all aiming to help you reach mindfulness. Each one of the items has a purpose: to revive, calm, relax or offer rest. Among the range of new products, you will find sprays, oils and scrubs which include natural ingredients.

One of our favourites is the “Sleep, Pillow & Body Spray”. Containing therapeutic jasmine, it will help you to fall asleep in the blink of an eye (and who doesn’t want that?). But if you’re in need of something that activates your mind and body, try the “Rose & Peony Perfume Oil”. In this case, the oil should be applied on your pulse points.
