Hey, Friday! The first week of February certainly brought a lot of news. In particular, there are a lot of new collections that you may be interested in: fancy The Devil Wears Prada merch, or Selena Gomez’s new beauty line? We have a lot to unpack before the weekend rolls in. Here’s everything you need to know before then.
The Devil Wears Uniqlo?
While Miranda Priestly doesn’t find florals for spring groundbreaking, this collection definitely is. Japanese clothing company Uniqlo just came out with their Women In Movies collection, featuring iconic quotes and moments from the strong female leads of Devil Wears Prada, Flashdance, and La La Land. If you need that extra boost of confidence for casual Fridays, you should definitely nab a piece from this range.
NYFW Kicks Off With The amfAR Gala
We love fashion but love fashion with a cause even more. New York Fashion Week began last Wednesday with a gala hosted by The Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR), one of the world’s leading nonprofit organisations dedicated to supporting AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy. The gala involved special performances from Charlie Puth and attendance from figures like Michael Kors and Coco Rocha.

Love the look of vintage sneakers? The vintage-inspired RTW brand RE/DONE has designed their very first sneaker collection for women. It is a carefully curated selection of the 70s, 80s, and 90s’ most iconic sneaker-head essentials. The shoes are handcrafted in Italy and made to last you years, if not a lifetime. You can shop the collection on net-a-porter.
Selena Gomez Reveals Her Beauty Brand, Rare Beauty
The ex-Disney star announced that she would be coming out with her own beauty brand this week. Called Rare Beauty, the brand is centred around Gomez’s belief that beauty is found in self-acceptance and unique imperfections. This is not only about beauty brands — the company wants to shape conversations around beauty, self-acceptance, and mental health. It will be available exclusively in Sephora US this summer but we hope it will make its way to Asia soon after.
Shake Shack To Open Its Second Branch in SG
The Shack is expanding its territory on Singapore’s shores. Aside from its first store in Jewel Changi Airport, you can now have the East Coast’s most popular burgers in their second location found on 89 Neil Road starting today, 7 February.
