FAVE 5: Get Your Fit On | Clozette


As much as we don't like to admit it, chic activewear definitely adds to the motivation of keeping up with a fitness routine. Aside from health and wellness, wearing something that makes you feel confident while fulfilling challenging goals is just exhilarating and also contributes a lot to your mental stamina, whether you notice it or not. Therefore, choosing gym clothes wisely based on both comfort and style isn't just about vanity — in fact, it plays a crucial role in one's road to fitness.

We're capping off the week with fun news from the worlds of fashion and beauty. From a surprise superstar sighting to a much-awaited new release, here are some news to bring with you to the weekend.


Rihanna in Southeast Asia




As part of Fenty Beauty's celebration of its first year anniversary, Rihanna paid Singapore a visit and introduced new additions to her Stunna Lip Paint Line. There are now five shades: Uncensored (red), Unveil (brown), Uncuffed (mauve-pink), Unbutton (peachy nude) and Uninvited (black).


Vanilla Pumpkin is back




Halloween is just around the corner, and if there were autumn in our region, we're pretty sure you'll be celebrating it, too. But just the same, you can get into the autumn vibe in our tropical location with the help of The Body Shop's Vanilla Pumpkin collection. Enjoy the indulgently fragrant products in a limited-edition packaging inspired by autumnal colours and Dia de los Muertos. Head to the nearest The Body Shop stores in the Philippines to get your hands on the Vanilla Pumpkin Body Butter (PHP995/~USD18), Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel (PHP500/~USD9) and Vanilla Pumpkin Hand Cream (PHP375/~USD7).


Diane von Fur-free



Diane von Furstenberg is the latest brand to go fur-free. The brand's CEO Sandra Campos announced the news that starting 2019, it will no longer use fur, angora, mohair and exotic skins in their products.


New Le Labo



Le Labo gained a cult-like following thanks to their scent named Santal 33. They're not resting on their laurels, though. Three years since their last release, the brand is bringing out Tonka 51, which is said to have a dark and woody scent sprinkled with a bit of sweetness. It will be available starting 15 October.

Another fashion season has come to a close and the Spring/Summer 2019 runways definitely served us some interesting looks that we look forward to sporting in the coming months. But before we unveil the biggest trends that are about to hit the streets, let's do a recap of the notable moments this season. From Wes Gordon's colourful debut at Carolina Herrera to CHANEL's breezy beach runway, here are the highlights from the world's major fashion weeks.


Wes Gordon's first collection at Carolina Herrera



After taking on the role as the global ambassador for her own clothing brand, Carolina Herrera appointed Wes Gordon to take over as the creative director. The Spring/Summer 2019 was Gordon's first-ever collection for the brand, a debut that made its mark through colourful prints and snappy designs. His ability to preserve the elegant aesthetic that the house is known for while at the same time injecting a dose of youthfulness gained an overall positive feedback from critics.


CHANEL hits the beach



You can always count on Karl Lagerfeld to serve us epic runway settings. Last year it was all about breathtaking greeneries and falls. This time, it's a recreation of a beach complete with gushing waters that mimic the sea waves as they reach the shore. To make things more realistic, there were also 'lifeguards' on duty and the models were instructed to walk barefoot for the final rundown as if they were really on the beach.


Hedi Slimane's controversial debut at CELINE



Hedi Slimane's debut at CELINE was widely anticipated and once it finally happened, it caused some controversy with some even comparing Slimane to Trump because of the noticeable lack of diversity in the model casting. Philophiles, which is a term used for fans of Phoebe Philo's previous designs for the brand, were devastated by the complete overhaul of the brand. But some remarked that it's a new era for the heritage brand that we have to embrace. In recent interviews, Slimane clapped back at critics, saying that the remarks have a homophobic and puritanical tone. 


Prabal Gurung celebrates diversity



At NYFW, Prabal Gurung's Spring/Summer 2019 runway proudly celebrated diversity. From his homeland Nepal to the U.S. and India, models from over forty different countries donned Gurung's latest designs which featured colour-blocking and influences from different cultures. It was a sight worth celebrating!



Victoria Beckham turns 10



Victoria Beckham's eponymous brand turns a decade old! The 10th-anniversary collection was presented during London Fashion Week (her first-ever show in LFW) and was characterised as minimalistic and sophisticated with pops of colour. Along with it is a 16-piece capsule collection to mark her brand's milestone, including jewellery pieces with a VB monogram.


Gigi Hadid's wedding dress at Moschino



After releasing quirky perfumes disguised as a cleaning bottle and sending runway models dressed as a bouquet, you'd think that by now Jeremy Scott would have run out of kooky yet strangely awesome ideas. But with Moschino's Spring/Summer 2019 finale, he proved that he still has some tricks up his sleeve. Gigi Hadid in a wedding gown with a trail of butterflies is a vision. It's a wedding idea that we're sure will be recreated by bride-to-be fashionistas.
