Hitting the High Notes with Vicky Sometani

It’s remarkable when music can transport you to an alternate space or time, particularly during a nationwide lockdown, yet Chicago-born artist Vicky Sometani does precisely that. Her haunting vocals and sleek, soulful sound hypnotically take you to the iconic 1950s era of jazz, in a way that feels modern and unique. Sometani first began making waves with her distinctive voice after moving to London from New York. Since then she has become well established within the London acoustic scene, playi

Streetwear Collabs from Beyonce and Willow Smith, Metallic Totes Made From Pineapples, Creative New Ways to Scent Your Space, and Road-tested Beauty Hacks

After seeing this so-called wonder hair treatment marketed heavily all over Instagram we couldn’t help but be intrigued, and after giving it a try, we can report back. Pros: hair was indeed much smoother, although to be fair we did straighten it carefully as instructed. Cons: the chemical smell lingers, and hair was crunchy and dry for a few washes. It does cut blow-dry time, but you would still need to straighten rather than rough-dry for the best effect. While not the life-changing product som

Elle B. Mambetov’s Miscarriage of Justice: How the Fashion Designer Overcame False Imprisonment to Become a Force of Nature for Social Justice

Her story started in Dallas, Texas, where she was born and raised Elle Tyree, a precocious child who was set on a life in fashion from early on. “I asked for my first sewing machine when I was just seven years old, and I did my first business plan as well around that age,” she recalls, laughing at how she used to make clothes for her American Girl dolls. In 2016, Mambetov was taking the fashion industry by storm. Aged only 26, she had been chosen to present her debut womenswear label Sophia Bec

The Oscars 2020: The best-dressed celebrities on the red carpet

And just like that, the first award season for the new decade is over. But how better to draw the season to a close than with the 92nd Academy Awards? Of course, while the main focus of Hollywood's most highly-anticipated night is to celebrate artistic and technical excellence in the film industry—such as ‘Parasite’ directed by Bong Joon-ho, which has made Oscar history as the first foreign movie to grab the Academy’s most prestigious award, Best Picture—we are all equally excited to catch sight

The Paper Bunny drops their first-ever, fully sustainable lifestyle collection

Currently, sustainability is on everyone's lips. And for good reason too, with environmental concerns at an all-time high. Not to be morbid, but we’ve only got one planet and right now, we are destroying it. Although brands are taking steps towards becoming more environmentally friendly—such as Timberland with their new sustainability collection—there's still a long way to go. One particularly prominent issue is single-use plastic. The problem with plastic is that it doesn’t biodegrade, ever. S

The International Woolmark Prize: Fashion’s most prestigious global talent program is back

It’s both crazy and inspirational to think that fashion icons Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent once began their careers as little known fashion designers. At least they were, until they both won the International Woolmark Prize in 1954. With such a star-studded legacy, it’s not surprising that today, the International Woolmark Prize still remains one of the industry's most prestigious fashion talent programmes. The competition’s core centres not only on design, but sustainability, exemplif

Spark The Next: A limited edition series of merchandise by Singaporean artists

With World Mental Health Day just celebrated on 10 October, we are reminded of the constant need for action. Not only do we need to address mental health, but also other societal issues such as environmental sustainability and social inclusivity. Encouraging awareness and advocacy is Spark The Next, a project by SG Youth Action Plan, that has created a collection of limited edition merchandise. As a way to lend a voice to Singaporean youths, the collection is a comment upon prominent issues and

JBL release their new, vibrant wireless in-ear headphones

With the launch of devices such as the new iPhone 11 and the Samsung Galaxy Fold, it's clear that we’ve now said goodbye to earphone jacks. It makes sense, who wants to be tethered to their device while at the gym or relaxing poolside? Wireless earphones are not only combatting this but also elevating music listening experiences; making them a staple for any modern man. Cutting the cord on how music was once listened to, leading audio brand JBL have released their new TUNE 120TWS wireless earbu
