Of releases and causes
Did you know that Lana Del Rey has a luxury bag named after her? In 2012, Mulberry released the style Del Rey, named after the Summertime Sadness singer. She wasn't the first singer to have been given such an honour, though. The famous Birkin bag by Hermes is named after singer Jane Birkin. Cool, huh? Well, we've got more interesting stuff coming your way. Read on.

Gearing up for the year ahead
It's a natural progression of life to reinvent oneself every now and then. And the beginning of a new year is one of the best times to evaluate ourselves and start anew. Read on as #TeamClozette shares their 2018 resolutions and the fashion and beauty things they want to help achieve them.
"I've always made it a point to style my hair before getting out of the house, be it to straighten my hair or give it some gentle waves. Sadly, my trusty curler got busted and finally retired. I’m also concerned that I have been overheating my hair with my current straightener, which I got in a hurry with little research. So I'm looking for a good replacement and I found the ghd platinum® styler to be interesting because of its single optimum temperature control of 185 degrees Celsius thanks to the tri-zone® technology, which maintains the temperature consistently across the entire styling plate. Plus, the wishbone hinge design is so unique and eye-catching. Looking forward to exploring more fun looks for the coming Chinese New Year."

"Don’t mind me while I live out my Italian dream in these Tod’s Double T moccasins in white leather from the Spring/Summer 2018 collection. I’m a stickler for timeless style when it comes to footwear, and this pair – inspired by the nonchalant lightness of the Italian vacation lifestyle – will be an everyday staple for me. Its unparalleled Italian craftsmanship will bring a definite spring in my step."
Tory Burch Anja dress in Duchess Stripe, price unknown
"One of the things I plan to work on this year is getting serious about dressing up again. Last year was all about ease and comfort for me when it comes to fashion. This year, I'm ready to take bold chances and try things I don't usually do — dressing up (or wearing more dresses, to be exact) is one of my plans. This Tory Burch Anja dress in Duchess Stripe is just what I need to get me inspired to don traditionally feminine pieces all year long."

"For this year, my beauty resolution is to trim down my beauty kit and make it more travel-friendly. I love playing around with my eye makeup a lot, so I always end up with a bunch of barely used bulky palettes. This year, I'll stick with a single holy-grail eye kit and use it till I hit pan. I'm eyeing the Kat Von D The Fawn Eye Kit as it has all the neutral shades that I love."

"This 2018, I aim to learn more techniques in photo and video editing. Of course, that will involve spending hours in front of the computer, and little squints here and there. So I need something that will build skin resiliency around my eye area. I've been looking for the perfect skincare product and I stumbled upon the new LANEIGE Perfect Renew Eye Serum. It definitely looks promising with its special formulation of anti-aging ginger water and moisturizing lavender oil. Look out for a possible product review!"
"This year, I'm aiming to become more fit so, naturally, I'm going to allot more of my time at the gym. This leaves me with only a few minutes to touch up on my beauty look, so I'm looking for a lippie that's fuss-free and low maintenance. That's why Tarte's Colour Splash Hydrating Lipstick in the shade Set Sail caught my fancy. It's the perfect natural pink flush that matches well with any beauty look or outfit. It also doesn't hurt that the formula is infused with natural and hydrating ingredients. Totally getting this!"
