Fashion is a hot issue and clothing of various types are on the rise. As with any minority peoples, there is also the creolization of the native tongues upon the merging of different cultures. Rushdie describes how he and his siblings were able to cleverly amalgamate their native tongue and the language and meanings of the dominant culture to describe the adults they encountered. As a result, they came up with cute names to fit the characters of these persons. The other male tenants in his father’s building he conveniently referred to as Maharaja P and Maharaja B. In Hindi, Maharaja means prince.” Because Rushdie referred to them as princes, one would immediately assume that these were unmarried men of means. Just so happens, Maharaja P was a sporting man” of some royal lineage and Maharaja B was a businessman of questionable character. He nicknamed his nanny Certainly-Mary” because of … Read the rest

On the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration, Biden and incoming vice president Kamala Harris attended a ceremony to honor COVID-19 victims. They were joined by their spouses at the Lincoln Memorial, where 400 lights illuminated around the reflecting pool to represent the 400,000 Americans who have died from the virus. As Kamala delivered a speech paying tribute to the lives lost and calling for the nation to begin healing together, she wore a Pyer Moss coat that also held significance.

When hospitals were experiencing a dire shortage of PPE at the beginning of the pandemic, Kerby Jean-Raymond, the Haitian-American designer and founder behind fashion label Pyer Moss, quickly converted his New York office into a donation center and donated $5,000 to purchase masks and gloves. The designer also set aside $50,000 for minority and women-owned small creative businesses that were distressed by COVID-19. The vice president-elect’s purposeful decision to … Read the rest

If you’ve spent nearly a decade working in the fashion industry like me, you come across a lot of stylish people. And no doubt, on my list, fashion editor Diana Tsui is among them. A former senior market editor at New York Magazine’s The Cut, Tsui’s style is a master class in eclecticism: it’s not unusual to spot her in a dramatic voluminous dress or skirt (usually by Sacai or old Celine), with show-stopping sneakers to match. Her self proclaimed “goth grandma” sense of style is due in part to legendary Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, “Growing up in New York City, I wore a ton of head-to-toe black as a teen but it wasn’t until after I graduated college and discovered the wonders of fashion forums that I found myself drawn to fancier all-black ensembles. One designer, in particular, stuck in my brain: Rei Kawakubo and her fantastical

Between the emergence of “maskne” (a word we’d never heard of a year ago but is now a part of our daily vocabulary) and more time spent in front of screens than ever before, not to mention the sleepless nights spent doom-scrolling, you may have noticed some skin dullness and puffiness that wasn’t there before. And while endless hours staring at our own faces on Zoom has resulted in an uptick in cosmetic procedures to address newfound imperfections, not everyone wants to go that route. Enter: face yoga and facial massage.

Launched in 2016 in the UK, “gym for your face” studio FaceGym made its North American debut in 2018, and currently has studio locations in Manchester, London, New York and Los Angeles. The premise of the facial (that’s way more than a facial) is to provide your face — and the 40+ muscles that exist from the … Read the rest

Disintossicarsi e dimagrire, con l'aiuto di tisane e bevande botaniche, è possibile? 

Erbe e botaniche spesso sono citate in diverse diete detox come alleate per sbarazzarsi di gonfiore e ritenzione idrica, nonché eliminare le tossine e di conseguenza perdere qualche centimetro. Però, per avere la certezza che una particolare sostanza depuri con altrettanti effetti sull'organismo, ci dovrebbe essere un riscontro scientifico (come ricorda in questa intervista il Medico Chirurgo Sofia Bronzato) ma, al momento, non esistono dati e studi che confermano l'efficacia che il consumo abitudinario di tisane aiuta a depurare il fisico. Erbe o radici non fanno miracoli. Il rito del prepararsi l'infuso, però, è un validissimo aiuto per idratare il corpo, soprattutto in inverno. E questo vale anche per i tè cinesi come il pu-erh, l'oolong, il tè verde ( incluso il Matcha ) e il tè bianco.

Le tisane sono ottime alleate del funzionamento
