Cole Haan & Fragment Design LunarGrand

As you know I’m a fan of Cole Haan’s LunarGrand shoes so I’m quite excited they’ll be releasing a Fragment Design LunarGrand collaboration. Comprised of three LunarGrand Wingtips and one LunarGrand Chukka, the collection is slated to release on Friday, July 13th first at Cole Haan SoHo and select leading retailers globally soon after.

The Cole Haan & Fragment Design LunarGrand Chukka is constructed from traditional Scotch grain leather with a crisp pebble grain texture. Presented alongside is a Cole Haan & Fragment Design LunarGrand Wingtip created with the same material. Both shoes feature trademark Fragment Design black uppers with white outsole detail.

Rounding out the special collection are two additional Cole Haan & Fragment Design LunarGrand Wingtips constructed from rich corrected grain leather with waterproof coating. The first features a solid putty-colored upper with navy blue outsole—a subtle, refined color combination. The second, exclusive to Cole Haan SoHo, features a putty and black spectator-inspired upper, black stained leather welt, and neon pink outsole. All four shoes feature the Fragment Design logo embossed on the tongue.

I’m hoping they’ll be unisex sizing because I’m loving the wingtips with neon pink outsole, how amazing!

Bombay Express de CHANEL

I love Chanel’s makeup, not only are their nail polishes always to die for but I also really like the simple packaging. “Each year, the CHANEL Métiers d’Art fashion show celebrates the exceptional talent of the Métiers Houses, pairing their know-how with a legendary destination. This year, Bombay Express de CHANEL showcases a specific vision of India. Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, intensifies the proportions of iconic Indian eye makeup to give it a universal character.” How pretty is the Diwali nail polish color, even the name is so fab. Here’s a look at the collection:

Graphic makeup with saturated colour blocks stretches out from the corner of the eye to express strength and femininity. Eyes succumb to the boldness and mystery of a black eyeshadow in all its nuances with ILLUSION D’OMBRE Mirifique. The rest of the face focuses on gold and light. The Exclusive Creation of the Collection is a precious, evanescent golden powder to dab onto cheekbones and eyelids in scintillating touches. In its classic black-lacquered case, ROUTE DES INDES DE CHANEL recreates an embossed motif of a rare fabric, a piece of bronze brocade from an Indian-influenced collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1960s. A stroke of blush structures the face and warms the translucent complexion with the hint of an elegant and sunny earth tone. Lips remain natural, enhanced by the luster of luminous beige shimmering with gold. On nails, an original nail polish mixing pale gold and silver recalls the traditional festival of lights, for which it was named Diwali.

MAGNUM Ice Cream x alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Photo Shoot

Last week I had a photo shoot with MAGNUM Ice Cream and alice + olivia‘s designer Stacey Bendet at The Carlyle Hotel. I love getting up and not having to get ready, arrived at the hotel and headed up to Yves Durif Salon to get my hair and make-up did. I decided to do a side part with my hair and kept my make-up fairly simple but with a bright pink lip. After all the pampering, I headed up to the suite to meet Stacey Bendet.

It was my first time at The Carlyle and the room looked amazing, love the Art Deco style and elegance of the hotel. When I got to the room, I felt like I was attending a party along with five other bloggers and Stacey. We drank champagne, ate MAGNUM Mini Ice Cream Bars and got styled in MAGNUM Ice Cream inspired looks by Stacey Bendet, it’s the summer so this pastel silk colorblock dress is perfect to beat away the heat.

it felt like a fun slumber party. Some of you may know that Stacey is designing an original mini skirt inspired by the new MAGNUM Mini Ice Cream Bars to reveal during fashion week this fall, we were at The Carlyle to celebrate this amazing collaboration. I’m quite excited to see the collection.

My most pleasurable moment from the MAGNUM Ice Cream photo shoot was having unlimited ice cream bars in the freezer. Imagine opening up your freezer and there’s bottomless MAGNUM Mini Ice Cream Bars in all flavors available just for you? I restricted myself to one classic mini bar, it will always be my favorite flavor. Which is your favorite flavor? Here are some behind-the-scenes photos and video, I’ll be posting the final photo from the shoot soon!
