Layered fashion can be hard especially since you're not just dressing for style but also for protection against the skin-biting weather. But hey, who's to say you have to compromise looking great while cosying up to a layer of three or more pieces in one ensemble? Take your cue from these Clozetters as they show you how to ace your chilly weather style.
News to ease the Monday madness
Caught in the Monday madness? We're here to offer a little distraction. From Kate Spade changing their logo to Hedi Slimane's CELINE debuting at Paris Fashion Week, relax, breathe and give our Insider Roundup a scroll to indulge in some news that will ease the early week tension.
Kate Spade teases logo change
Following the wave of labels changing logos last year, Kate Spade teased that a full alteration is also coming their way before the end of January. The previous logo presented in either black or gold containing the brand name and spade symbol is now reinvented with pink and green hues called "pink kiss" and "clover" respectively and is slated to grace the new line of collections that will be launched before the month ends. From the looks of the comments, people are giving mixed reactions towards this change, but only when their new releases come along will there be a final call if the rebrand is a success.
"World's Cutest Dog" passes away
Last weekend, the world mourned as Boo, dubbed the "World's Cutest Dog," passed away. According to his owner, the famous Pomeranian died of a broken heart following the death of his best friend and fellow Insta-famous pupper Buddy. Rest in peace, little fella! You and Buddy enjoy doggy heaven, okay?
Black, white and gold gowns graced the Producers Guild Awards red carpet
One of the things that we absolutely adore during awards season is seeing a lot of gorgeous looks on the red carpet. And this weekend, we saw a wide array of elegant gowns in black, white and gold worn by some of our favourites at the Producers Guild Awards. Our top looks include Kate Beckinsale wearing Yanina Couture, Constance Wu in J Mendel and Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton.
Toni Gonzaga launches YouTube channel
Filipino celebrity and multimedia personality Toni Gonzaga officially launches a vlogging channel on YouTube in celebration of her 35th birthday. Upon uploading her first video yesterday, Toni's channel already garnered 47k subscribers but the number is expected to rise as she uploads more candid videos on the platform. It's safe to assume that this move was inspired by her sister and fellow TV personality Alex Gonzaga, who first launched a channel on the platform July 2017.
CELINE debuts menswear line courtesy of Hedi Slimane
It's been almost a year since Hedi Slimane replaced Phoebe Philo as CELINE's Creative Director but people are still not over the major changes he brought to the brand. Debuting the label's first ever menswear show at Paris Fashion Week last Sunday, the collection aimed to channel a crisp 'retro rock star chic' vibe but was called underwhelming and predictable by many Philo fans and fashion critics. So we ask: how are you finding Hedi Slimane's CELINE so far?
Throwback trends, collabs, hair secrets —all spilled!
Extra, extra! From old beauty trends making a comeback to Sophie Turner spilling icky Game Of Thrones hair secrets, we're spilling the tea on this week's hottest news so buckle up and get ready.
Barrettes are officially back
Everything seems to have a hint of nostalgia these days and your hair accessories are no different. Giving us major flashbacks from back in the day when you can't finish a hairstyle without putting a barrette on, these clips are back in the fashion game and even major names like Gucci are jumping on the trend. The question is: are you psyched about this, too?
Polly Pocket makeup
Barrettes are not the only throwback trend we have this week because Hot Topic has collaborated with Mattel's Polly Pocket in honour of the latter's 30th anniversary and it's serving us the toy's signature pastel hues. We're digging it. The line includes both a lip and an eyeshadow palette that honestly looks pretty much like kids makeup. Even so, we can't help but be excited and hope it performs well enough for our adult standards.
Sophie Turner reveals a secret about her Game Of Thrones hair
The actress, who played the red-haired Stark daughter on the hit HBO series revealed that around Season 5 of the show, she wasn't allowed to wash her hair during the entire span of the filming. While she didn't elaborate on the details, it's safe to assume that being a natural blonde whose hair has to be dyed for the show, it might have to do with keeping the hair colour's longevity. Sophie did mention that she used wigs in the latter part of the series so the no-washing rule was officially off the table.
Beauty meets sports with Maybelline and Puma's latest collaboration
Bold, sporty and perfect for edgy street looks, Puma x Maybelline is a collaboration that we didn't know we needed. The collection includes four matte + metallic eye duo sticks, one gloss face duo stick, a new shade for the brand's bestselling Master Chrome highlighter and a smudge-proof mascara that promises high-performance and lasting power to keep your makeup game strong. All we can hope for now is for it to be available in the Asia-Pacific region and we're all set!
