    Adriaan Kuiters+ Jody Paulsen’s SS16 designs will be available in the store in Kloof Street, Cape Town and online at adriaankuiters.com in September 2015.

NEW COLLECTION. NEW DIRECTION.

Soft, light and Neutral, the SS16 Adriaan Kuiters + Jody Paulsen collection sees a new direction. Minimalism dominated the runway with crisp, clean lines and simple shapes. Fussy details were left on the curb, and the simplicity of the silhouette was embraced in full.

The lines and silhouettes are vintage Adriaan Kuiters and the collection has a functional, urban, wearable character. Trousers were tailored and cropped to finish, whilst tops were more androgynous in asymmetrical easy-wearing shapes. Cuts are structured and classic yet easy to wear and sporty.

CEDRAT FOR MEN

New for men, L ‘Occitane Cedrat, is an eminently masculine, woody citrus scent, blending cedrat bark, bergamot and subtle flavours of cedar and cashmere wood.

Cedrat, a member of the citrus family, was the first citrus fruit to hit Europe in the 01st Century AD. Although originally not as popular as other citrus fruits with the islanders of Corsica, it is well know today for it’s energizing and medicinal properties. With this in mind, L ‘Occitane placed cedrat at the heart of new skincare formulas.

For men who like fresh, clean citrusy scents – this one should be on the top of your to-try-out list!

  • Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen SPF 50, 30ml R465

CITY-PROOF YOUR SKIN

Dull, lifeless skin? Live or work in the city? Eureka. While we harp-on about the perils of the sun we tend to forget the equally nasty effects of pollution on the skin. Unlike the sun, there’s little we can do to limit our exposure to air pollution. Moving to the country may be an option (yeah right), but offsetting pollution hazards with your daily grooming arsenal is not – it’s crucial.

How? Remove impurities, boost antioxidants and protect.  Clarins’ new formula, UV PLUS ANTI-POLLUTION SPF 50, is rich in plant extracts that help to reinforce the skins anti-oxidant line of defense.  With protection happening both “inside and outside” and packaged in a handy 30ml it’s perfect for the urban man.
