We’re already months into the new year and, for many of us, not much about our lives has changed. And while the certainty of a steadfast routine can positively influence many aspects of life, it can also be boring. If you’re never changing, adapting, and growing, you’ll be left behind. Now, most men would default to changing up their wardrobe when it comes time for a change, but this can be extremely costly and time consuming.

This year we are celebrating the 55th anniversary of the most world famous flip-flops brand: Havaianas. It all started in 1962 back in  Brazil.

The name Havaianas is Portuguese for Hawaiians. The first pair of Havaianas was born in 1962, based on the traditional Japanese sandal known as the Zori, whose soles are made of rice straw. The texture of Havaianas’ rubber soles are like rice grains, one of the many details that make Havaianas unmistakable. By 1964, almost every Brazilian worker had a pair of Havaianas. Salesmen from the company would drive around the country in small trucks in order to sell the flip-flops in simple plastic bags. It was the beginning of a true revolution. The brand…

Party season fashion: is less really more?

Party season fashion: is less really more?

After spending your teenage years experimenting with coloured eyeshadows and pop-star inspired ensembles, discovering your personal style normally means you’ve finally learnt the one key, basic rule the fashion world lives by – less is more. Go for fit, go for quality, and go for style over trends. That’s the fail-safe formula for sartorial success. But then it comes to the festive season and every year the shops fill with a variety of sparkly clothing and accessories. Like all advocates of minimalist chic, you’re suddenly completely lost: “Is velvet acceptable for the over 10s? How much glitter is too much glitter? Am I really allowed to wear head-to-toe sequins?” Party wear is tricky, and the one place where a less is more approach isn’t always helpful. This season’s rule Take this year’s trends as an example. On the one hand, anything seems to go. A party dress embellished with sequined lace and glittering inlays, or a…

3 Big Lies about Feminine Beauty and How to Get Rid of Them.

3 Big Lies about Feminine Beauty and How to Get Rid of Them.

The years 2000 brought femininity to a new area of extremes. We went from an over-sexualized femininity at the beginning of the 21st century towards a more natural approach of things. Still, women have always the pressure to look good and to fit a certain stereotype. Here are 3 big lies and how should you get rid of them. Lie N.1: Men prefer thin girls This is obviously a lie. Men in general prefer to have a “little more than a little less”. Men prefer to see shapes and to be able to relate to femininity without any compromise. There are always exceptions but it is interesting to see that almost all the feminine press that has been advertising skinny girls are all leaded by women.

Church’s – A British Jewel in the Art of shoe-making. 

Church’s – A British Jewel in the Art of shoe-making. 

Church’s story in shoe-making starts officially in 1873 with the foundation of the company by Thomas Church and his 3 sons. But the shoe-making heritage was already in the Church’s family since the 17th century. In deed, Stone Church, the Church’s great grand-father of Thomas was born in 1676 in Northampton. This British city had a long and solid heritage in shoe-making. So this specific know-how was written in the family’s DNA for several generations. It was natural that several decades later Thomas Church founded his company in Northampton where they still have the main factory. The business remained within the founding family until 1999, year that Prada Group took over. Thanks to this acquisition, the British company had enough resources to expand overseas. Today the company produces around 5’000 pairs of shoes every week and 70% of total production is dedicated to exportation. Besides products sold to resellers and…
