first ladies of beauty

When boxed black hair dyes and facial bleaches were the norm, these enterprising ladies managed to manoeuvre through the challenges of sourcing quality products, bringing a spot of vanity into the lives of women across Indian cities.

not just my mother’s bag

It seemed almost prescient that one of spring 2020’s biggest trends was the micro bag. Spotted on runways, this necklace bag (with some of the hottest offerings as small as two inches) was designed to fit just a lipstick, a credit card and AirPods. A representative of a minimalist lifestyle (with the invariably impressive price tag), the nano sac was all about travelling light and paring down your belongings to the bare essentials. Post March 2020, as the world came to a hard stop, this edit became the norm. Conversations were dominated by safety concerns and sanitisers, and face masks fast became the new black. A petite pouch was now seen as a must-have only because it could store house keys while leaving your hands free to spray disinfectant on every…

italians do it better

“I always take inspiration from people on the street,” says Walter Chiapponi, Tod’s new creative director. This February, barely days before Italy went into complete lockdown and the rest of the world followed, Chiapponi, a veteran of Bottega Veneta under Tomas Maier, debuted a collection that was applauded for its sophisticated sensuality while respecting the house’s codes. “I have always loved the culture of Italian buongusto (good taste), especially for menswear. I love to see how Italian men really care about little details, such as a haircut or a perfectly brushed shoe. [Even with womenswear] the inspiration was the very idea of good taste, intended not as a rule or a limitation but as a way of life.” Not much is known about the Milan-based Chiapponi, but here’s what I discover: his…
