SPRING FLING

Coming soon in March 2013, Conscious Collection by H&M. Here’s to fashion for better tomorrow.

Part of H&M ongoing commitment to a more sustainable fashion future, this collection are made from Conscious material such as organic cotton (FYI, H&M is no 1 user of organic cotton worldwide), recycled polyester and Tencel.

Vanessa Paradis (actress, singer and ehm Johnny Depp’s ex) looked angelic as the face for this campaign. I love the warm lighting and the natural scenery sets for the video. The full Conscious Collection (including men, kids and babies), will be available in H&M stores worldwide and online from March 25, 2013. 

THIS IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE 

Lancome by Alber Elbaz!!!! 

My goodness, my heart is racing. I can’t wait to see the real thing, the packaging, the colors. But good things do come for those who wait. Holding my horses until they launch later this June. 

It will definitely be the most wanted limited edition collection of the year. For now, just enjoy the teaser video which Alber Elbaz illustrated himself. 

OTHER THAN H&M?

H&M will be having a new more luxurious line called “& Other Stories”. 

Spring 2013, seven stores in London, Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Milan, Paris and Stockholm will be open. Offering women’s shoes, bags, accessories, beauty products and ready to wear created by their ateliers in Paris and Stockholm, they will have online boutique (soon) as well. Said to bring a more diverse collection from masculine tailoring to feminine chic, I wonder how expensive they’ll be comparing to C.O.S (another brand by H&M Group).

Anyway, while waiting for the brand to pop out, check out the video, capturing Lisa Butler (she’s a renowned make up artist) for the teaser of this exciting upcoming brand. 

O ROMEO, ROMEO! WHEREFORE ART THOU ROMEO?

AS güd AS IT GETS

These body care products are not for those who think that being beautiful is what makes them happy.

On the contrary, the people behind this new brand from Burt’s Bees think that being happy is what makes women beautiful. And they’re trying to prove that natural products can also look pretty and fun too. Yes, just like her sister, güd products are as natural as they can get. They don’t contain parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals and most importantly, not tested on animals.

If her sister is targeted for more mature user, güd is aiming for those in their 18-24 age range. “Because women at these range are very sensorial. They may make great choices to protect the environment, but they’re not as on the lookout for villain ingredients, or worried about wrinkles, as the Burt’s Bees shopper is. Güd customers are the kind of women who will pop open the cap in the store looking for an indulgent fragrance,” Garrett Putman, Global Marketing Manager for Burt’s Bees told Marketing Daily.

I’m definitely out of their age range but still sensorial somehow (yup I still pop open any cap in the store if possible), I might try one of their products just to make sure that they really smelltastical like they said. I’ll keep you posted on that review as I’m surfing their website as I typed. You can also check out their colorful animation ad here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtCj7psqEKk
