We all know by now that lighting a candle is a great way to unwind after a busy day. But what if that candle were also designed to burn particularly slowly — 50 hours, to be precise? Apparently it would sell out insanely fast, as shown by ‘Slow Burn,’ the bestselling candle created by country singer Kelly Musgraves and LA brand Boy Smells. With incense, black pepper and tonka, it’s all about “pausing along the way to relax and enjoy exactly where you are right now,” explains Musgraves. If that sounds like your vibe, we suggest you relax AFTER you hurry over to boysmells.com and preorder yours
Exciting news from our fave Danish design house HAY: As part of their “ongoing commitment to sustainability” (yay!), they’ve just announced the release of a range of new furniture by international designers (double yay!). The first two pieces were highlighted on their Instagram these past days, with more to come throughout the week, and we suddenly feel a very strong need for a new sofa and chair. Coincidence? We think not. See for yourself — at your own risk! — on hay.com
People LOVE this brand. Developed by co-founder and acne sufferer Fiona Stewart after she was prescribed a silk pillowcase by her dermatologist, Slip pillow cases are now the most important part of so many beauty routines. Made from 100% pure mulberry silk — developed and refined over 10 years — Slips prevent your pillow sucking the moisture from your hair and skin, prevent sleep creases, bed hair and even promise anti-aging. What’s more, they’re launching a deep dreamy rose gold colourway very soon. Keep an eye open on slip.com
Launched in May this year, Lost Stock is a UK-based fashion initiative set up to support garment workers in Bangladesh after over $3bn worth of orders were cancelled by retailers because of Covid-19. Lost Stock packed these unwanted orders into mystery boxes, curated by things like size, type, colour, and sold them for a fair price. Now making their model more circular, the initiative has teamed up with the British Heart Foundation, The Nu Wardrobe and Swopped to encourage customers to make more sustainable choices with any unwanted garments received. Nice. For a lucky dip, hit loststock.com
All eyes are on CPHFW — including yours, if you wish! By launching the first-ever ‘hybrid’ fashion week today, Copenhagen is not only granting an exclusive front row seat to the public via livestreams (and thus keeping with Covid-19 regulations), it’s also transforming its format to be more sustainable. All brands showing at CPFHW must comply with a minimum of 17 sustainability standards, including using “at least 50% certified organic, upcycled or recycled textiles in all collections.” We stan! And will definitely be tuning in to all the it-labels: Ganni (Mon at 5pm), Brøgger (Mon at 6pm), Stine Goya (Tue at 11am) Rodebjer (Tue at 6pm) Baum und Pferdgarten (Tue at 8pm), Helmstedt (Wed at 1pm) and Marimekko (Wed at 2pm) — as well as several talks on sustainable and anti-racist practices within the fashion industry.
