|Des produits pour vous garder propre, calme et confiant lors d'une tempÃªte de sable|
<p>I’m on an adventure trip in Malawi – part holiday, part work and lots of wilderness. It’s been 10 days of sensory overload, from trekking through burning fires in forests higher than Ben Nevis to DJ-ing in a sandstorm.<p>
I’ve been doing my all to remain clean, spruced and confident regardless of what this wildness has thrown at me. Granted, it hasn’t always worked. Yesterday I clambered on to our bus having had only three hours’ sleep and one outdoor shower, with sand layering my skin, in my ears and other places it shouldn’t be. I felt gross as we powered through a seven-hour safari drive.<p>
It all seemed just a little too primal but for one thing, a bottle of delicious-smelling oil that has been perking me up in more feral moments: Sister & Co’s Raw Coconut Drink For Hair (£27). It smells lovely and zingy, with its mix of coconut, argan and macadamia oil, which all absorbed gorgeously into my frazzled curls, offering much relief.<p>
Thank you, squirty bottle of hair drink... it sure was thirsty.
|Why lipstick on your cup is a mark of glamour|
I’m in Malawi, east Africa, attempting not to look at any screens for a bit – a mission perfectly enhanced by the fact that the electricity goes off regularly and there is no wifi in many areas outside the capital city… I’m not just here to address my phone addiction, I’m also here to root my feet into the ground, and enjoy adventure.
When I was on my connecting flight from Ethiopia to Malawi, a woman sitting next to me was wearing a shade of lipstick that I first noticed because it had stained her cup of water. For me, it was a nostalgic shade, the same colour as the berries of a Black Forest gateau - a gorgeous burgundy, edging on plum. It instantly reminded me of one of my mum’s friends back when I was growing up. This particular lip stain would mark a wine glass in our house at the end of an evening, the sign of a great night shared and lots of women laughing.
I’m inspired to paint my lips the colour of glistening jewels, too. If you’re also up for this, go against the trend for matt lipstick as it’s a style that should have a bit of shine - enough to stain cups and leave your mark of glamour wherever you go.
|Les joueurs anglais ont menÃ© une enquÃªte de colÃ¨re Ã la mi-temps aprÃ¨s ce que Danny Rose|
Avec le match sans but et le fait que les Suisses aient joui de la majoritÃ© du jeu et de meilleures opportunitÃ©s, les joueurs ont pris l'initiative d'exiger une amÃ©lioration avant que le manager et son Ã©quipe ne discutent en Ã©quipe. "Nous avons Ã©tÃ© battus", a dÃ©clarÃ© Rose, qui Ã©tait l'une des meilleures performances d'Angleterre. "C'Ã©tait un peu embarrassant. Nous aurions pu Ãªtre deux ou trois. C'est gÃ©nial que nous puissions tous nous crier et se dire que ce n'est pas assez bon. La seconde moitiÃ© n'a pas Ã©tÃ© incroyable mais c'Ã©tait mieux que la premiÃ¨re et nous sur la lune, nous avons eu la victoire. "
Harry Maguire a suggÃ©rÃ© que Southgate a continuÃ© Ã dÃ©livrer des mots sÃ©vÃ¨res de sa part, bien qu'il ait Ã©tÃ© encouragÃ© Ã voir une Ã©quipe, qu'il a prÃ©cÃ©demment accusÃ© d'Ãªtre trop gentil, rendant leurs frustrations claires. "Je n'Ã©tais pas lÃ [quand les joueurs parlaient]", a dÃ©clarÃ© le manager.
"Nous leur donnons toujours les trois ou quatre premiÃ¨res minutes Ã eux-mÃªmes. Nous les encourageons toujours Ã faire entendre leur voix. Il est important qu'ils se sentent suffisamment proches pour pouvoir s'entendre. Ensuite, nous devons nous assurer que cela ne dÃ©borde pas .
"Ils ont Ã©tÃ© frustrÃ©s en premiÃ¨re pÃ©riode, mais jâ€™ai toujours su que câ€™Ã©tait un risque. Câ€™Ã©tait les premiÃ¨res minutes du football pour plusieurs dâ€™entre eux et le fait dâ€™Ãªtre face Ã une Ã©quipe de haut niveau a Ã©tÃ© un problÃ¨me.
"Nous avons Ã©galement eu un problÃ¨me tactique avec Xherdan Shaqiri et Granit Xhaka qui ont Ã©tÃ© si profonds, ce qui a signifiÃ© encore plus de course pour les gars qui ont disputÃ© leur premier match de la saison. Et nous avons donnÃ© le ballon trop facilement."
"La premiÃ¨re mi-temps Ã©tait vraiment prÃ©visible, mais les joueurs ont eu besoin du jeu. Ils ont creusÃ© pendant cette pÃ©riode et nous avons pu effectuer des changements tactiques Ã la mi-temps.
"Câ€™Ã©tait assez calme au moment oÃ¹ je suis arrivÃ© lÃ -bas. Mais câ€™est un bon signe quâ€™il ya du leadership dans le groupe. Ils reconnaissent quand ils veulent Ãªtre meilleurs. Aujourd'hui, ils ont Ã©tÃ© durs avec eux-mÃªmes. ils pourraient Ãªtre Ã leurs premiers dÃ©parts est un peu irrÃ©aliste ".
La victoire a mis fin Ã trois dÃ©faites consÃ©cutives avant les matches de la Ligue des nations le mois prochain en Croatie et en Espagne. "Il est important en tant que groupe d'avoir gagnÃ© contre une Ã©quipe du top 10", a ajoutÃ© Southgate, avec le Suisse au huitiÃ¨me rang mondial. "C'est un fait agrÃ©able. Nous savons que la performance aurait pu Ãªtre meilleure.
|ORIGAMI FINDS A NEW HOME IN WOMENâ€™S FASHION|
Taking the art of origami out of the limitations of paper and bringing it to fabric, Angela Wang’s Origamei project makes outfits and clothes foldable to the extent that they occupy a small fraction of the space they would if opened out. The Origamei project has two purposes. One, to make fashion much more accessible, using the art of folding as a method to reduce a clothing item’s spatial footprint… and two, Origamei sees itself as more of an empowerment tool, as most clothes do, helping women dress in clothes that feel comfortable and make them feel confident. The fact that you can carry these clothes around in the palm of your hand, or even stash them in your clutch or the glove compartment of your car, means that the very confidence and self-esteem that you get from wearing good clothes, is made portable too.
The Origamei comes in three different styles, all for three different scenarios. The Momo, or the t-shirt dress is for casual wearing, either at home, or to meet a friend at a coffee shop. The Yuri caters to a much more social atmosphere, even serving as a formal dress, perhaps for business or an interview. The Kiku, or the tent dress, is for letting your hair down. A perfect summer dress, the Kiku is ideal for a day at the beach, or a classy date in the evening. With Origamei’s patented folding technique, you can fold down all three dresses to a built in pouch (clutch) that’s slightly bigger than your smartphone.
Ideal for traveling, the Origamei can sit either in your bag, or glove compartment, or even strap to your backpack, using its discreet carabiner clip. Also built with an accessory pouch (for jewelry to dress up the style of the dress) and even hand pockets (a rarity and a necessity in women’s fashion), designer Angela Wang hopes that the Origamei will help empower women live a more minimal fulfilling lifestyle, by allowing them to chase their dreams and follow their heart with a compact outfit for any occasion anywhere on the go, anytime. The next step? A compact, foldable, effortless range of Origamei outfits for men too!
|Has Warcore Replaced Normcore in Fashion?|
"If bad times are a-coming, Helmut Lang is the man to outfit the brave." That was how Vogue's Sarah Mower opened her review of Lang's Fall 2003 collection, a tactical take on ready-to-wear complete with sporty silhouettes, harness straps, and piled-on functional layers. Mower argued that the purpose of Lang's Lang-iness was "to help his army of followers stand tall in the face of geopolitical meltdown."
It's 2018 and those bad times—and that geopolitical meltdown—are here. Fashion has reacted with a Lang-aissance that began simmering in 2015 and has now begun to boil over. Look to the Spring 2019 men's runways and you'll see harness bags strapped to chests, tank tops mimicking the shape of bulletproof vests, and pants with enough pockets to double as storage units. It's at Off-White and Louis Vuitton, both designed by Lang acolyte Virgil Abloh. It's taken hold at British labels, A-Cold-Wall and Cottweiler, where models were secured with dozens of little puttees and hiking straps. It's everywhere there's a utility pocket, a hammer hook, or a stripe of 3M tape so you are safe at night.
The biggest proponent of this look is Alyx's Matthew Williams. The American creative director now based in Italy has swiftly become one of menswear's most influential men with everyone from Kanye West to Dior's Kim Jones, who asked Williams to design a special CD-logo clasp for his Dior Men's debut, nodding in his direction. At Alyx, Williams has elevated push-button clasps, the kind you find on trekking backpacks or fisherman vests, to a form of art. The signature style is a hulking buckle, heavy enough that it looks like it could secure raw steel, with aggressively curved lines and shiny metal swoops. In a Nike collaboration, he kitted out activewear with similarly functional details, mixing in balaclavas, flags with the Nike logo, and pants with zips, straps, and hooks.
The runway-to-real-way impact has been near-instant in our street style images from the recent shows in Europe. Showgoers are wearing balaclavas (a curious choice in summer) and riot-ready vests or utility trousers with functional clip-fasten belts. In plain terms, these are clothes that came to fight.
