NEW WAYS TO WEAR CHANEL NO.5 L'EAU



[ PHOTOGRAPHY: Chanel ]

Chanel have just given you two new ways you can wear No.5 L'eau. They have released a body mist and "On Hand" roll-on cream. The packaging is clean minimal, quite far from luxury. I believe they are trying to target a consumer who needs something more practical to fit into their busy lives, like the working woman. 

The body mist is advertised as travel friendly and will be a permanent edition to the fragrance family. However, the body cream is limited edition and I believe will be bought as a bit of a gimmick. I think the push to create something a little different using the same fragrance was a good concept but the outcomes are not very innovative and feel like something you would get free in a One Direction perfume set from Superdrug. So maybe not the best move from the luxury brand.

MET GALA 2018: SAINTS + SINNERS


My favourite look from the Met Gala came from Alessandro Michele, Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto. It's beautiful Gucci maximalism at its best.


Zoe Kravitz wearing Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent isn't the most respectful of looks from the red carpet with it resembling a head covering worn to pay respect. However, she looks amazing so I'll forgive her.


Another look where morals could be questioned as Rihanna dressed as a Pope in Margiela and Louboutin. Nobody else could pull this off.


Little rant here. Why did we dress Ashley Graham like this? Yes she looks stunning but it looks like any old red carpet look, not a Met Gala dress based on fashion and the Catholic Imagination. I can't help but think her position as a plus size model prevented an exciting design from gracing our Instagram. The girl deserves better.


Send her back to Coachella.


Someone please inform me how this relates to the theme.


Gigi Hadid's Versace gown was incredible. I love the angelic reference with the golden wing.


Cara Delevigne in Dior is beautiful, the paneling is different to other dresses and I love the headpiece.


I don't love it, yes it's a gorgeous golden Versace dress, but its predictable.


The most head turning gown came from Blake Lively in Versace. Taking over 600 hours to make I believe the outcome is breathtaking and reflects the Heavenly Bodies theme perfectly.


I adore Lily Collins Givency dress. The headpiece is gorgeous, the cross detail she's holding is beautiful and I love the gothic influences.

THE CLOSURE OF WARDOUR NEWS (AND THE FUTURE OF PRINT)


[ PHOTOGRAPHY: Vogue ]

Wardour News is closing after thirty-four years and it leaves me to question the future of print. The Soho newsagents famously stocked a range of independent publications and was a mecca for print lovers. Sadly due to the increasing age of the owners and increase in rent, it is having to close its doors to the world. Even though the situation can't be helped, it means there is one less place to buy print magazines on the high street. Personally, I like to flick through magazines in shops before I buy them as their physical appeal is important to me. Therefore, this concerns me, because if other consumers also have this shopping habit then what is left for the future of print in the digital age?
