Passport’s back in the drawer, we parted ways with our holiday clothes and are slowly accepting our back-to-school reality, be it in the form of a return to the office, fashion week or, well, literally school.
While it’s the perfect time to set some new goals or go back to our healthy routines, it’s also a great moment to treat ourselves to new accessories, skincare or a good read for Fall. Here’s a round-up of our favourite products to check out right now.
ROXANNE FIRST new on MR PORTER
This season, MR PORTER is launching a new accessories brand with Roxanne First. The London-based label will add some fun in your life with designs that only incite “nothing but good vibes.” Go ahead with the stacking and layering as that’s what they’re meant for. But don’t be fooled by their funky aspect, the pieces are crafted using “solid gold, colourful beads and semi-precious stones.”
NECESSAIRE, NATUREOFTHINGS & MUTHA just launched on NET-A-PORTER
Nécessaire is a body care that pledges to be gentle not only on your skin but on the environment as well. Climate Neutral Certified, the products are vegan and cruelty-free, proposing components such as “Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid and vitamin C.” The brand’s acclaimed Body Wash is available at NET-A-PORTER in both a neutral and eucalyptus version.
Natureofthings is a California-based brand that proposes a holistic wellbeing concept – The promise? A “radiant appearance and healthy skin.” Beyond just a skincare product, the different formulas use ingredients that were designed to remove the stress from our lives and strengthen our body and mind while the plant and mineral elements present in these products have an “immediate and preventative effect.” Buying Natureofthings is buying uncompromised quality, results backed by science and a commitment to total transparency.
MUTHA was born out of its founder Hope Dworaczyk Smith’s struggle to find a good stretch mark prevention cream while she was pregnant. Well guess what? This issue led her to launch a cult product and a brand that also supports “global nonprofits aiding maternal health along the way.” An exclusive to NET-A-PORTER, The ‘Cell Rejuvenating Essence’ has been created to be the very first step in your beauty routine.
A pair of PĪFERI shoes
Founded in 2020 by Alfredo Piferi, PĪFERI is a luxury and animal-free designer shoe label. The brand has a 100% vegan policy that doesn’t compromise on the exceptional craftsmanship. Purpose, innovation, and creativity are at the core of PĪFERI’s mission to “bring superior design, inclusivity, and sustainable, bio-based, and recycled materials to the front row of the fashion industry.”
Their AW22 collection is inspired by “the vitality experienced by Alfredo Piferi during Paris Fashion Week in September 2021.” About his fifth collection, the designer says:
“There was an explosion of euphoria and sexiness. People were finally enjoying life again, dancing and wearing the
highest heels and as few clothes as possible. There was a sense of wanting to make up for lost time after a long lockdown due to the pandemic.”
Assouline’s latest launch, the exceptional: « Louis Vuitton: Virgil Abloh »
The first book release about visionary designer Virgil Abloh since his passing on November 28, 2021, “Louis Vuitton: Virgil Abloh” is a “testament to a relationship that changed the course of fashion history.” Written by Abloh’s close collaborator, Anders Christian Madsen, the book unveils an intimate portrait of a man “born to break boundaries on and off the runway.” Abloh, who was the first African-American man to hold the role of the Men’s Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton was a real figure of a modern icon, defined by “inclusivity, diversity and empowerment.”
