Sass & Bide’s party-season dresses, Spanish style for men and how to get spun-silk hair

OLD FASHIONED FUN  A legendary socialite’s parties inspired the new Sass & Bide range

Interior designer Elsie de Wolfe was a style icon of 1920s trans-Atlantic high society, and a ticket to her annual Circus Ball was the ultimate mark of social success. For their Resort 19 collection, Sass & Bide aimed to capture the fun and decadence of one of her soirees. We say that anything involving headscarves and ruffles is an instant party classic. Available in store now.

KISS & MAKEUP Universally flattering, the new M.A.C lipstick is a lazy, hazy dream

Instagram taught us that little blur goes a long way when it comes to improving the face. And M.A.C‘s new Powder Kiss Lipstick ($40) is the cosmetic equivalent of a soft-focus filter for your lips, creating a soft, smudgy wash of 16 rich colours with no harsh lines. A unique formula, it’s both moisturising and matte. Available in store now.

FADE AWAY Nothing beats a good pre-faded t-shirt for instant summer style

Get ahead of the sun this summer with AS Colour‘s new pre-faded, pre-shrunk tees ($30) for men and women. In a range of shades from dusty red wine to the washed black of your best-loved Westie jeans, these give you a vintage look without the holes and frayed hems.

BOOK JACKETS Meet the Spanish menswear range that’s just write

Founded in 1963, Spanish menwear label Florentino is a contemporary range founded on classical tailoring. Their SS2018 collection, now on the racks at RJB Design, is entitled The Writer, and draws influence from the bohemian style – laid back, with just a touch of madness – of poets and scribes.

International stylist Wendy Iles gives Heidi Klum, Keira Knightly, Rita Ora and Penelope Cruz their super-shiny, silky, tousled magazine cover hair, using her four-piece luxury Iles Formula range ($56-$112).
