Local designer David Green is known for making environmentally concious eyewear, which is why we’re loving these Limited Edition Vintage 1955 Collection sunnies (R1500)! Made from a natural cotton-based acetate, there are only 80 pairs of these sunnes – 40 with black frames and 40 with tortoise-shell frames (our fave!), which means not only are they green, but truly unique!

Last Friday was World Water Day, and as usual, Giorgio Armani had something special up his sleeve.

Since 1990 the designer and Greencross International have given over 2 billion people access to clean drinking water. Last year alone saw them donate over 52 million litres of water globally, 60 000 of which were donated locally. This year their aim is to donate 100 000 litres across SA.
In fact, Giorgio is so taken with the cause, that he collaborated with Pantone to create the “Giorgio Armani Acqua For Life Blue”.

 

This year’s Acqua for Life campaign launched on Friday and will run until the end of April. To help raise funds (and awareness) the brand is launching two new fragrances, Acqua di Gio Essenza (male) and Acqua di Gioia Essenza (female). During the campaign, for every one of these fragrances (as well as the classic Acqua di Gio and Acqua di Gioia) bought, they will donate 100 litres of water. All you have to do is log onto their FB page and register your purchase. In addition, if you ‘like’ the page while you’re there, they will donate another 50 litres (50 litres can provide a child with clean drinking water for 200 days)! Quite incredible, isn’t it? Click here to get started.

 

You can get the fragrances at major retailers. The male fragrance is available in 75ml, R919 and 180ml, R1599. The female version is available in 50ml, R819 and 100ml, R1039.

With summer slowly drawing to an end, it’s time to start thinking about your winter wardrobe. And even though we hate saying goodbye to the sunniest season, we can’t wait to slip into some chunky knits and killer winter boots.

 

Today we’re loving these two-tone ankle boots from Studio W at Woolworths (R450). Edgy enough to rock with your favourite denims and chic enough to wear to work, these boots are certainly on our list of winter must-haves!

We’re big fans of a product with a good cause, which is why we’re loving Bobby Brown’s Pretty Powerful Pot Rouge (R340). Every cent of the retail selling price will go towards HearBeat, a charity involved in supporting the well-being of orphaned and vulnerable children suffering from the impact of HIV. Worth every cent? We think so!

Are your feet looking for a day off from heels (yes, it happens to all of us!)? We’ve found the prettiest pair of Pretty Ballerinas pumps (R2500) that will make your feet look just as good as your favourite pair of stilettos do. Whether it’s with a cute shift or simple pair of jeans, these shoes don’t need much to make them look fab!

Yes, we know excitement! The fabulous 74 year old (yes, 74) Japanese designer launches a brand new fragrance this week.

 

L’Eau d’Issey Absolue is a seductively more grown-up version of his previous scents (perfect for winter evenings, we think). It is described in the press release as “an unprecedented interpretation – luminous floral based in honey ad night-blooming jasmine” – sounds like it would make the most delicious topping to a dessert, right?

 

The addition of the word ‘Absolue’ in the name has a detailed explanation too. The Master Perfumer who created the fragrance, Olivier Cresp had this to say of it: “The word Absolue does not by any means refer to a concentration or increased doe of ingredients. Rather, it speaks of the trail’s presence and potency, and of rich and textured raw ingredients. Just like the night-blooming jasmine which is warm, luminous and fills the atmosphere with its fragrance.”

 

The scent is so enchanting we can’t stop sniffing it, or looking at it for that matter, as it’s encased in the most opulent gold bottle. The juice is a rich cocktail of lotus flower and freesia accord at the top that fades into a rich heart note of tuberose, honey and that precious night-blooming jasmine. This bouquet is topped off with a sprinkling of Bourbon vanilla absolute and a heady wood accord.

We just love the idea of wearing a scent at night with notes of a flower that only blooms at night. Those clever Japanese…

 

The fragrance is available in 25ml, R645; 50ml, R1055 and 90ml, R1195.

We love it when you find a classic item with a twist – which is why we’re loving this timeless trench with a studded collar (R999) from Zara. Dress it with a crisp white shirt, tapered trousers and a pair of power heels to work, or simply throw it over a skinny jeans and tee combo on your day off! Either way, come autumn, you’ll be delighted you invested in a piece like this.

Who doesn’t love a bit a Swarovski? Silly question, we know, but now you can get your dose of crystal quality in a  ‘fashion fragrance’ form with the new Swarovski Edition (R595). So if you thought this cute clutch was a handbag – it’s actually a deliciously fruity floral fragrance!

The top opens to a cocktail of clementine and redcurrant jelly, followed by a floral heart note of wild rose blossom and gardenia and at the base, a rich melody of white musk and cedar wood. Dreamy, we know!

This fashion statement fragrance will only be around for a limited time, so get your (crystal encrusted) heels on to get yours at leading retailers!
