SHOErotica: Sergio Rossi Arte Povera Sneakers

In the wake of the Nike x Riccardo Tisci tornado, Sergio Rossi is introducing some funky fashion sneaks too. The brand has taken inspiration from the Arte Povera movement, better translated as art of po' folks, which was basically in the late 60s, early 70s, when artists -- gasp! -- went all anti-establishment in their oeuvres. Translation: lots of colourful craziness.

Pre order at Sergio Rossi.


Gisele Singing Blondie

Gisele Bündchen sings? Apparently so. H&M has just released a music video of the supermodel singing. Gisele is the face and voice of H&M’s 2014 summer campaign and recorded this cover of Heart of Glass by Blondie, produced by Bob Sinclair. Roylaties from the song will be donated to UNICEF.

Beauty Notes: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum

Did you all have a good Easter break? I spent it eating loads as well as trying out a bunch of new beauty products. First up is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum. I was finding the change in weather to be a pain in the butt given that my T-zone was going a bit nuts so I had some hesitation in changing up my skincare routine. To my surprise, I found that when I tried out the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum, my face didn't go insane and in fact quite cheerfully accepted the change while helping brighten the slight dullness that I seem to be sprouting. Now I have no idea if it's the placebo effect and the fact that I was on holiday so my face should naturally brighten at the thought of having more sleep and time to myself but I did find this serum to be quite refreshing and uplifting. Priced at HK$350 for 30ml.

Alexander Wang x H&M

So the next collaboration is with Alexander Wang. Thoughts? Tired of these designer collections or still looking forward to it? Think we can get anything more basic than his plain tees at H&M? I'm interested to see what sort of stuff he will come up with and as always, I want to know what he will do in terms of accessories and bags, more bags than anything. The full collection will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide, and online starting November 6, 2014.
