There’s loose-fitted shirts and shorts, versatile blazers and trousers, bucket hats and fresh outerwear. It’s already sold out at Our Legacy’s store, but the collection will be seeing another release on the Stussy website and on Dover Street Market London’s e-shop August 28.

Say Hello To Plastic-Free Shaving

British brand Rose & Thorne are reclaiming double-edge safety razors. You’d recognise them best in a masculin context, which might have something to do with the marketability and profitability of the cute and non-scary pink plastic razors we buy today. But the thing is, disposable razors are super scary! The EPA estimates that 2 billion razors are thrown away (not recycled!) each year in the US alone. In response, Rose & Thorne are encouraging us to “ditch single use plastic razors for an alternative that not only looks beautiful but is zero waste too.” And, now that they’re finally shipping all over Europe, we’re happy to oblige. To buy, hit rose-and-thorne.co.uk

#GucciModelChallenge Reminds Us To Love What We Already Own

TikTok cuties all over the world are reaching into their existing wardrobes and turning themselves into Gucci models — often looking better than the originals IMHO. Easily searched for and indulged in via the hashtag #GucciModelChallenge, the movement is a solid reminder that inside all of our wardrobes sits some solid gold. You’ve just got to refresh your approach to styling your old faves… and maybe wear a lil babushka scarf on your head… and you’ll literally look like you’re fresh from the set of a luxury fashion campaign. The takeaway styling tip seems to be layering, disobeying all colour/print collision rules, and layering — stuff we’re happy to get behind as winter rears its frosty head.
