Earn your stripes

Still rock ‘n’ roll
Fauré Le Page launches the Daily Battle 19 collection in red hot shades with an edgy rock ‘n’ roll feel to it. The iconic Ecailles Canvas features a tiger’s head, a symbol of strength and courage. The phone case is one to look out for, as it is inspired by the gun manufacturers of the original Maison Fauré Le Page. Hot Fire phone case is available in 90 numbered copies.
The new royals
In 1928, the Maharajah of Patiala commissioned the house of Boucheron to design jewellery for him that was filled with precious gems. Today, Boucheron recreates that design with the New Maharajah’s collection that highlights designs referring to elements which symbolise ancestral India, such as the lotus flower, turban ornaments or wedding bracelets. Even traditional methods such as glyptics — which is the art of engraving stones — are used to give life to the collections.
Real men do wear make-up
Harry Styles has led the way for men to wear a woman’s blouse or a dress — so now it is ok for men to wear make- up too. Peter Philips, creative and image director for Dior Makeup, has created a men’s line that is natural and flawless. This was featured on the models at the winter 2022/2023 men’s collection by Kim Jones. The collection includes products such as Face & Body Foundation; Powder-no-Powder and Dior Stick Glow 005 Opal for the cheekbones. To finish the look, lips are hydrated with Rouge Dior Velvet Balm 000 Diornatural.
H&M’s latest collection for men goes heavy on pastels for the Blank Staples collection in clean-cut styles in heavyweight cotton fabrics. This everyday streetwear range features oversized and boxy-fit tees, sweatshirts, hoodies, joggers, underwear and socks. The colour palette is clean and modern in faded pastels such as pistachio, sky blue and stone, along with a shot of off-black shade.
