Louboutin · LoubiGraffiti Spring 2019

Inspired by the extravagant looks of Maison Louboutin’s LoubiGraf shoes & bags, the limited edition LoubiGraffiti Collection celebrates beauty in the most sun-drenched & colour-saturated way.

Dior · Wild Earth Collection, Summer 2019

I’ve said many times before that Summer collections are my favourites, probably because I’m a July baby, but it’s also because something about the seasonal hues really speak to me.

CHANEL Vision d’Asie: Lumière et Contraste Cruise 2019 Collection

“A woman is only as good as the light & peace she radiates” (Coco Chanel)

Once Christmas passes, I begin anticipating the warmer weather with all the new beauty collections it brings, and first out of the gate for Spring/Summer 2019 is CHANEL’s Vision d’Asie: L’Art du Détail. Embarking on a photographic journey through Japan and South Korea, Lucia Pica — the brand’s head of makeup — was inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi: the art of seeing preciousness in imperfection, thereby elevating the mundane into something so much more. In the end, it’s about the interplay between shadow & light along with classic tones paired up against unexpected pops of colour … and it all just totally works.
