6 Trending Colours COS Is Backing in a Big Way Right Now

Right now, COS’s new-in section is full of of-the-moment colour trends, the most noteworthy of which we saw on the A/W 22 runways earlier this year. As you will well know, COS usually sticks to a minimalist colour palette, favouring timeless shades of ecru, navy, forest and black. If that’s what holds COS’s appeal for you, fear not; the brand hasn’t deserted its penchant for pared-back hues. However, sitting alongside them, COS has well and truly embraced brighter colours for autumn.  From the vibrant tone taking off on TikTok to the continuation of summer’s green obsession, scroll on to see the six trending colours COS buyers have stocked up on for the season ahead.  You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates O...

5 Haircuts That Don’t Do Thin Any Favours—and 5 That Absolutely Do

If you have fine or thin hair, you might be thinking of what haircuts are best suited to your hair type. With so many haircut ideas online and on social media, it can be tricky to know where to start. All hair types and textures come with their own challenges, but for thin or fine hair, it can be difficult to create lasting volume and shape. That is why choosing the best haircut for fine hair is so essential. It lays the groundwork to maximise your hair to its full potential. With the right haircut also comes less styling time and hair that looks perfectly suited to you and your lifestyle. And who doesn’t want that? Choose the wrong haircut for fine or thin hair, however, and you may find your hair isn’t sitting how you might like it, no matter how many styling products&nb...

Sienna Miller Just Wore a Pair of TikTok-Viral Jeans With High-Street Boots

There’s an effortlessness to Sienna Miller’s outfits that we are consistently keen to emulate. Whether she’s stepping out in a minidress or slouchy jeans, Miller knows how to curate a look that feels considered without being contrived.  Whilst attending the 20th anniversary party at Deliciously Sorted, Miller once again provided a master class in smart-casual style. She paired white, low-rise jeans, the sort that are currently all over TikTok, with a cropped top and added a boho touch with a beaded belt—a harmonious laid-back look for her night out in Ibiza. It’s not the first time that she has opted for this reliable jeans-and-white-boots combo. Though sightings of Miller may be rare, many of her recent outings have featured this fail-safe formula,...

I’m a Fashion Editor, and I’m Living in These 4 Easy Outfits From ARKET

I love this time of year. It’s sunny, the days are long, ice lollies are aplenty and there’s a “school’s out” energy in the air. Of course, we all enjoy the prospect of a holiday, but I’ve always thought that London (and most cities, actually) really comes into its own in August. There’s something about that notion of “summer in the city” that’s so chic. You can spend the weekends bouncing around city neighbourhoods in a satin dress, Aperol spritz in hand, pretending you’re 2022’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw. That being said, if you’re interested in fashion, you’re no doubt deep into thinking about the upcoming season. Will it be wool coats or puffers? Which boots will be at the top of everyone’s wish l...

Elon Musk Backpedals on April Comments and Sells Another $6.9 Billion USD in Tesla Shares

Elon Musk has now backpedaled on comments he made back in April, selling more Tesla shares in anticipation of his upcoming trial against Twitter. Four months ago, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO sold off $8.4 billion USD’s worth of shares he had in the former company before confirming with a tweet that he had no further plans to sell any more TSLA shares. Between August 5 and August 9, however, the tech mogul sold another 7,924,107 shares worth roughly $6.9 billion USD. Explaining why he sold the shares, Musk posted on Twitter that he needed cash in case some equity partners “don’t come through” if the social media platform really manages to push through with the deal with a victory in court, adding that he wants to avoid any emergency selling. Wall Street analyst Dan Ives...

Gucci’s “Princess” Slingbacks Are the It Shoe of the Season

I have a pretty big thing for shoes. A fashion editor who loves shoes? Go figure! But out of all the items you can decorate your wardrobe with, shoes are the piece that I find the hardest to resist. Sizing is seldom an issue with shoes, and eleven years into my career, I’m still impressed by how the simple switch of a shoe can completely reimagine an outfit. As such, I’m always open to adding new shoes to my wardrobe. The pair I currently have my eye on? Gucci’s crystal slingbacks. Is your interest piqued? It should be. I first saw Gucci’s crystal slingbacks last winter—its logo GGs applied delicately to mesh in teeny rhinestones. Although they’re the perfect shoes for parties and weddings, at the time, my social calendar didn’t call for them. So I archived the shoes in the back of my mind...

WOAW Gallery Presents “GOBLIN FANFARE” By Shannon Peel

For its latest exhibition, WOAW Gallery tapped Australian-born and Brooklyn-based artist, Shannon Peel, to share his repetition-based artistic process. Dubbed “GOBLIN FANFARE,” the solo exhibition curated by Saša Bogojev, highlights Peel’s painterly practice that relies upon momentum to create natural expressions of the subconscious and spontaneity. Artworks show flow, form, space, and color, while continuing Shannon Peel’s established recurring elements that note progress in alteration evolvement, and refinement. The showcase of self-quotation and technical improvisation has been integral to the artist’s work defined by classical tropes, layered textures, and discordant subdued tones. While traces of pigments, scraped, scratched, dirty, and broken-down touches offer a charismatic flair to...

Pipilotti Rist Visualizes the Neurons in Our Brain in New Installation

There are billions of neurons constantly working day and night within our minds. Pipilotti Rist seeks to make this visualization a little easier through a new site-specific installation at Qatar Museums. Curated by Tom Eccles and Bouthayna Baltaji, Your Brain to Me, My Brain to You is the Swiss artist’s first exhibition in the Middle East. Visitors will be cast into a multi-sensory experience that aims to illuminate humanity’s collective unconscious and the power of the mind. “This work is both a collective and individual experience. We want to understand what is happening inside the brain of the other, and culture is the main way to try to understand each other beyond language,” said Rist in a statement. Set against a soundscape and video footage of Qatar’s landscapes, 12,000 LED strung l...

Every Fashion Person Owns These Trousers—Here Are 19 Pairs to Try Out

Ever since Kendall Jenner wore those beige trousers with a white vest and shirt, our outfits haven’t been quite the same. Establishing tailored, beige wide-leg trousers as an essential in everyone’s wardrobe, her outfit reinstated the fact that staples never fail. If you’re not typically a fan of this trouser style (it can be tricky to know which shoes to wear with wide-leg trousers), fear not. The key component here is colour. We’ll start by saying beige is anything but boring. The soft, neutral tone goes with practically any colour, from tonal white and tan to soft yellow or pink to punchy blue. With this in mind, you can see why the most stylish women on Instagram have been wearing these trousers on repeat all year. We’ll just let our fashion friends show y...

Kathy Ager Pays Homage to the Nike Dunk Low “University Blue” in New Puzzle

Kathy Ager is a Canadian graphic designer-turned-artist who has a penchant for still-life. Instead of depicting chalices and skulls, she displays her love for Nike and Jordan Brand through meticulously detailed compositions that hark to the 17th-Century Golden Age of Dutch and Spanish painting. In conjunction with SOONNESS, Ager has released her first puzzle dubbed Gone Coastal. Reminiscent of a print she released in 2021, the artwork features a Nike Dunk Low “University Blue” hovering amongst the clouds. The 1,000 piece puzzle set was made “for those days when you just want to lay in the grass, stare into the clouds and drift away,” said the artist in a statement. Gone Coastal is made using recycled cardboard and is available to purchase for $58 USD via SOONNESS. The puzzle comes packaged...

Barry McGee Unveils First Solo Exhibition in Seoul

Perrotin has been active in the Korean capital, having recently announced a second location in Seoul, along with a host of prominent exhibitions to follow. Barry McGee is the latest artist to takeover the space and his penchant for experimentation is put on display in full effect. McGee is interestingly a student of history, while disregarding much of the norms laid forth in art history. Through his work, you can mine a wealth of typographic styles hovering over an array of mind-bending textures. “If his imagery is from the past, his techniques are from the future,” wrote Lawrence R. Rinder, Director Emeritus of UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) in an essay that carries the same name as the exhibition. Mapped across the gallery, Everyday Sunrise presents a series of ...
