#HMxMOSCHINO

In their long history of designer collaborations, H&M hasn’t really missed a beat. The Swedish giant’s new designer collaboration is with the Italian luxury house Moschino, headed by highflier, Jeremy Scott.

The collection includes womenswear and menswear, as well as a few other as-yet-to-be-divulged components. “There’s a silver sequined parka dress,” says Scott. “Denim pieces are all twisted into something else. Puffers and jackets are reconfigured into cropped things or double-long things. There’s a sportswear-with-evening kind of feeling, like a hockey jersey with a train.” He also flags a CD print, which is “archival from Franco . Sometimes I reconfigure something from the history, but sometimes it’s perfect as is.”

The line, called Moschino H&M, will drop on November 8; the news was announced late Saturday night, with a little help from Gigi Hadid, at Scott’s 11th annual party held around the Coachella music festival.

  • GET GROOMED: DO OR DRY

AUTUMN SKINCARE UPDATE!

A change of season typically means a change in the way skin behaves. This can often result in dryness, breakouts, and a general lacklustre appearance.

You don’t need to overhaul your skincare routine entirely, but you do need to make some minor tweaks to your regimen to ensure that skin stays healthy during this seasonal change. Make the transition from summer to autumn flawlessly with these tips…

Grooming: NEW FRAGRANCE: NARCISO RODRIGUEZ BLEU NOIR EDP

  • NARCISO RODRIGUEZ BLEU NOIR EDP, 50 ML R1115.00 AND 100ML R1345.00, EDGARS & RED SQUARE

A SCENT TO NOTE!

If you enjoy a heavier, muskier scent this one’s for you. The new Narciso Rodriguez Bleu Noir eau de parfum celebrates masculine sensuality in a rich olfactory composition that’s discreet yet potent. The recognisable Narciso Rodriguez signature musk is heightened by masculine, woody blue cedar and black ebony notes and further transformed with amber vetiver.

An artful reinterpretation of the original Bleu Noir bottle, its simple rectangular shape becomes an exquisite illusion of multi-layered transparency in two shades of blue; a blue-black centre rectangle, framed by a thin edge of electric blue luminosity.

MASKS UNCOVERED!

With the better part of summer behind us it’s probably a good idea to take stock of your skin. Too much sun and holiday partying demands a detox!

And the quickest way to give your skin a deep-down detox is use a face mask.
While many men are familiar with scrubs, face masks still remain something of a mystery – even though they are one of the most bene cial and easy products to use. Most only need applying for ten minutes and there is a range of products for di erent skin types and needs.

If you can get past some of the ‘girlie’ packaging, here’s what to look for and why it’s really good for your skin.

THE BK2WRK EDITION

When it comes to your career, don’t underestimate the power of looking polished. Whether it’s the first interview with your boss, an important client presentation, or even post-work drinks with your colleagues, how you present yourself and how you’re perceived, can make all the difference in getting ahead.

It is in your teens and early twenties that you can lay the foundation of great skincare and ensure your work is a lot easier by the time you hit forty.
Start with the basics; cleanse and moisturize daily and don’t leave home without applying SPF.
It’s as simple as that.

ESSENCE OF THE OCEAN

Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve is a new version of the popular masculine aquatic fragrance from Bvlgari, Aqua Pour Homme and created by the same master perfumer and famous “nose” Jacques Cavallier.

We have no doubt just like its predecessor Aqva Pour Homme, Atlantiqve is set to score high in the popularity stakes.

It’s a refreshing and energetic “aquatic” fragrance inspired by the strength of the Atlantic Ocean. Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon and a “vital water” accord give it fresh zesty top notes. At its heart a “sea amber” note developed by Jacques Cavallier evokes the depths of the ocean and woody vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli give the blend masculine appeal.
