In queste settimane inizia a spopolare una tendenza dedicata alle sfumature capelli su cui scommettiamo per il 2021: l’effetto Smoky Hair, che si ispira a quello dei tanto amati Smokey Eyes nel make up, ovvero, il gioco di un mix di nuance, dalla più chiara alla più scura, sfumate abilmente per creare una dissolvenza di colori che risaltano gli occhi e donano profondità allo sguardo.

Come funziona sui capelli? Per chi è adatto? Qual è l’effetto finale? Come si curano i capelli per mantenere il colore intatto? Lo abbiamo chiesto a Luigi Neri, Creative Director del Progetto Class, che conta oltre 300 Saloni in tutta Italia e Accademie di Formazione per hairstylist. La tecnica degli Smokey

The latest collection from home-grown outerwear brand Canada Goose is designed by Chinese designer Angel Chen. The brand, who has become know for epic past collaborations, is joined by Chen as their first-ever guest designer.

Chen, who attended the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London and is shortlisted for the International Woolmark Prize, debuted her spring/summer 2021 runway collection this past October featuring her versions of iconic Canada Goose pieces. The Next In Fashion alum’s runway collection featured colour and volume that translates into dramatic redesigned Canada Goose pieces.

“This collection represents the transition from winter in Canada to spring in China,” says Chen, who included her version of the functional outerwear over tulle ball skirts in her finale looks on the runway.  The 13-piece collection is designed for men and women with mix-and-match layers to compliment varying weather conditions.

If you’ve seen the trailer for The Wilds but haven’t binge-watched the first season yet, you may assume the show couldn’t possibly yield fashion inspiration. After all, it follows a group of teenage girls who get stranded on a deserted island for weeks while en route to what they believed was a women’s empowerment retreat, forcing them to fight for their lives as part of an elaborate social experiment. And yet, despite the survivalist theme, Fatin Jadmani manages to stand out as the undisputed style star, rocking a multitude of chic outfits while enduring sleepless nights, unexpected storms, and a bout of food poisoning, among other dismal circumstances.

Portrayed by actress Sophia Ali, Fatin doesn’t wear comfortable athleisure like many of the other characters on the Amazon Prime Video series; she wears sparkly pants, crop tops, skinny jeans, fuzzy slippers, and a steady rotation of jackets covered in fur, … Read the rest

Film 2021: la (lunga) lista di Netflix

Ci sono voluti tre supereroi per lanciare la notizia-bomba di 71 nuovi film in arrivo su Netflix nel 2021.

Slouchy, lug-sole, combat and Western-inspired boots are all staples in our footwear rotation, but styling them through the elements can be tricky. While winter layering offers lots of styling opportunity, watching your favourite pants trail though slush can make you want to avoid going outside altogether. Luckily, the latest street style trend will help eliminate any soggy hemlines: The most fashion-forward street style stars are wearing their pants tucked into boots.

From coordinated leather pants and boots for a seamless look to an oversized pant, which gives a billowy effect, there’s no wrong way to work this trend. For maximum comfort, gather and fold a wide pant leg flat around the ankle so it slips into a boot easily and doesn’t bulge or rub against you when walking.  Treat and clean your leather and suede boots on the regular and tuck pants in to help minimize your dry cleaning … Read the rest

Let’s face it: 2020 has been a year of letdowns, and the fashion industry is no exception – especially when it comes to matters of race. As a Black editor, I’m sick and tired of the general refusal to follow through on promises and simply do what is right. Following George Floyd’s murder, countless brands rushed to social media to share sentiments of solidarity. My inbox was flooded with emails titled, “Our commitment,” “We stand with the Black community,” and, my personal favorite, “We pledge to do better.” As someone who’s worked in fashion for eight years and experienced discrimination both firsthand and from afar, these so-called “promises” fell on deaf ears. They were performative, lacked emotion, and, frankly, felt like they were after one thing: my coin. As I dealt with the trauma and grief of losing … Read the rest

Quando Nicolas Polli mi ha fatto vedere la prima bozza del suo libro When Strawberries Will Grow on Trees, I Will Kiss U, ho tirato un sospiro di sollievo. Era maggio, eravamo a fine lockdown, e l’ultima cosa di cui avevo bisogno era trovarmi di fronte una bella storia, un progetto appassionante, un’idea originale… Ancora di più, non avrei sopportato un altro lavoro sull’esperienza della quarantena. Mi sentivo sola, e in cerca di qualcosa – di un qualcuno – che non riuscivo a trovare, ma quel mio stato interiore non c’entrava niente con l’isolamento forzato. Era, per me, una condizione normale, con cui convivevo da anni: un vuoto da riempire con la mia quotidianità fatta di piccoli successi e gratificazioni professionali. Non ho mai pensato di essere l’unica, anzi, mi sono sempre chiesta cosa ci fosse al di là della maschera che ognuno di noi indossa quando si confronta

Where are you going? To take a walk around the block? To the grocery store? To work, because you provide an essential service? (Thank you!) With few other exceptions – some outdoor skating rinks and ski hills are open in some Canadian cities, for example – that is an exhaustive list of the winter activities possible during pandemic lockdowns. This is not to say, however, you can’t love your winter outfit, even if you’re going no further than the end of your street for a stroll. Below, see seven celebs who are giving us serious winter wardrobe inspiration in cozy knits, warm coats and, of course, face masks.

In less than two weeks, Kamala Harris will make history as the first Black woman and first South Asian American woman sworn in as vice president of the United States. To mark such a momentous achievement, Vogue featured the politician as its February 2021 cover star, but the publication’s leaked cover quickly drew criticism. According to internet commentators, the styling and lighting didn’t reflect the powerful position Kamala will soon hold.

With photographer Tyler Mitchell behind the camera, Kamala posed in a black Donald Deal suit and her signature Converse sneakers for Vogue‘s print cover. She honored her Alpha Kappa Alpha roots with a strand of pearls as she stood against a draping pink and green background, signifying the sorority’s colors.

However, critics described the cover as “awkward” and said the lighting “washed out” our future VP. They also questioned the magazine’s decision to feature Kamala in … Read the rest
