Urban Decay · Game of Thrones Collection

When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones, my heart almost stopped: a beauty collection from one of my fave brands + my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SERIES OF ALL TIME (yes, that deserved to be said in caps) = worlds colliding and in the best possible way. As a seriously massive fan of the show (I’ve even read all the books), I was beyond thrilled and when the collection finally arrived, and that feeling has grown exponentially upon playing with all the pieces. The game is most definitely ON.

Mugler · Angel Eau Croisière

For Summer 2019, Mugler’s Angel has been reinvented into an exotic tropical fragrance: think of Eau Croisière as Angel’s fresh, sunny, fruity and oh-so-flirty younger sister.

CHANEL Backstage Beauty · Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 2019

This past March 5th, the last collection created by the late Karl Lagerfeld for the House of CHANEL (Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 2019) was held at the Grand Palais, with the venue transformed into a magical alpine scene and the theme of the show feeling quite fittingly like this legendary man’s Wintery swan-song. Devoted to all aspects of the glam chalet life, the creations drew their inspiration not only from the season, but heritage fabrics as well. Observing a minute of silence at the start, the rest of the show stayed true to Lagerfeld’s vision and left the entire audience speechless. The finale had emotions running high and tears were definitely flowing, but in the end it was a celebration — an homage to the creative genius of this one man who transformed the world of fashion, and whose touch will continue to be felt for generations to come.
