Launched today, “Garden” from Brooklyn perfumers MCMC combines red thyme, myrtle, lavender, lemon and bitter orange essential oils for a unisex scent with 50% of its purchase price going to support Ananda Harvest, an urban farming group—smell good, feel better.
While few might actually read an entire Dr. Bronner’s label, you may have noticed three simple words—Made in U.S.A.—printed within the famed poetic Moral ABCs. That commitment to domestic production is a small but core principle in the “all-one” philosophy behind a family-run company with over five generations of soapmaking heritage. It’s one more reason to make Dr. Bronner’s soap (one of the purest out there) a staple at home, on the road, and anywhere you need a multipurpose cosmetic solution.
Like other fans of all things glamorously fun, we’ve been awaiting Alber Elbaz’ collection for Lancome since hearing about the collaboration earlier this year. Now with its arrival this past weekend, welcome images of the chic packaging and the playful man himself have filled our browser.
Elbaz imagined a temporary collection that is pure fashion down to the thinnest detail. “The real theme running through the collection is eyes.” He explains, “and roundness forms… the bottles are so fabulously rounded that they were my inspiration. I wanted to create rounded shapes with a hint of humor.”
What better way to celebrate the fashion pairing than with an inspirational trip through the designs, patterns and references that make Lanvin and Elbaz tick? With the designer’s thinking on the limited-editions as a point of departure, we dove deep into his particular brand of style. From that unmistakable shade of pink to the flounces, flourishes and other fearless, poetic details that define a joyously unapologetic femininity, here’s a tribute to a true living legend.
Chanel achieved the exclusive yet accessible tone of Fashion’s Night Out by introducing a series of three denim colored nail shades called Les Jeans de Chanel. The nail color capsule collection was created by Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, and designed to match the shades of your favorite pairs of jeans. Blue Rebel is the darkest tone, to go with your inky, dark wash jeans, Blue Boy is the mid range tone intended to match the causal indigo wash you would wear with a pair of heels, and Coco Blue is a relaxed, light tone to wear with your worn and faded pair. We loved the idea and we’re so excited we can finally wear denim on our nails! The polishes are available until the end of September at Chanel boutiques and online.
