Welcome to our biggest issue yet! We’ve got 104 pages

of fashion, beauty and amazing visuals prepared for you

this time, available 24/7 on your computer, tablet or

mobile phone wherever you are.

Besides the usual fashion and beauty news, we’ve

prepared a rundown of womenswear and menswear

trends in this issue including shopping suggestions, so

that you don’t have to research yourself and could shop

directly from the issue. I personally love Fall because

of how versatile you can be with your style, and who

doesn’t love layering?

Also I wanted to include some features that could be

really helpful to a lot of people and hopefully answer

some questions. We’ve teamed up with John Lewis

Liverpool in order to find that one perfect pair of jeans

for any body type (p52). I was really interested to see

the results. I’m sure you will be too!

Our beauty guru Lucy gives you some great advice

about fillers in this issue. She actually went and got them

done at The White Rooms clinic here in Liverpool and

told the whole story in detail in p77. If you ever thought

about getting facial injections, I’m sure you will find this

feature really interesting and helpful.

as I do, we have plenty of it in this issue. I’m really

excited that we are featuring photography work from

feature editorials on our website.

I want to thank everyone involved in creating this issue

and our rapidly growing following on social media. We

love you and wouldn’t exist without you!

Stay inspired,

WAREHOUSE CURATES

THE CITY

Last year Warehouse appointed

Alasdhair Willis as Brand Consultant to

work alongside the existing management

team. Willis is instrumential in the

relaunch of the Warehouse brand, from

the delivery of a new brand proposition

and identity, product handwriting, new

store concepts and roll out through to

the brand’s digital experience.

The brand also appointed British

Designer Emma Cook as Design

Director, whose industry experience

includes roles with various international

fashion brands as well as successful

establishment of her own label.

This Autumn / Winter collection is

Cook’s and Willis’s first offering.

Lilac Silk Pussy Bow Blouse, £69.

14 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016

Indigo Denim Jacket with

Shearling Collar, £99.

Warehouse rounds up the new season with

a nod to the Sixties mixed with a Brit mod

feel seen in key pieces, such as a mustard

patent leather A-line dress, worn with a

‘Warehouse’ logo monogrammed roll neck

that also appears as a jacquard zip up

jacket and tailored culottes combo. Different

variations of check are updated in a bomber

hooded jacket and wide trousers or as a

sharp wool trench coat worn with a dusty

lilac silk blouse, bringing a quintessential

British allure to the outfits.

Taking the urban as its palette for Autumn / Winter 2016,

Warehouse presents its first style concepts for the season under

the Design Direction of Emma Cook focusing on bespoke prints,

layered textures and contemporary silhouettes to inspire the

new Warehouse woman in her city.

Reinterpreting the foundations of style classics, Warehouse’s new

collection introduces a polished eccentricity with a unique take

on vintage inspired prints and fabrications. These come alive as

woodland jacquard prints on bonded oversized coats, cropped

jackets and wide leg trousers, worn with knits or over loose

tailoring in shades of toffee and butterscotch. Considered clashes

also appear in a baby pink soft shearling coat and jersey sweater

teamed with a zebra print, seen in an oversize wrap skirt or

trousers reinforcing the collection’s attitude.

Warehouse Autumn / Winter 2016 collection

will be available in store and online at

WAREHOUSE.CO.UK from September 2016.

Following on is a Modern Bohemia story, inspired by the freespirit

of the city, highlights include painted florals on fluid navy

silhouettes such as an asymmetric evening dress, shirting and

loose trousers matched with silk tie-dye, luxe tees, joggers and

tunics. The collection also introduces a new take on fashion denim

with hero pieces such as a side split wide legged trouser teamed

with a cropped jacket with removable shearling collar adding

a contemporary edge to the collection.

PLÙS QUE MA VÌE

WORDS: Jurga Skeiryte

Plùs Que Ma Vìe is an Italian menswear fashion brand founded by Andrea

Lazzari in 2013. After an internship in the fashion industry, Andrea presented

his graduate collection at St. Petersburg fashion week, which led to creating

his own brand. We talk to Andrea about the beginnings of Plùs Que Ma

Vìe, his ideal client and future plans.

WHAT DID IT TAKE TO GET IT STARTED?

At the beginning it was important to understand how the

fashion business works. I was also aware that I am entering

a saturated market in a difficult social and economic period.

However, the most important thing for me was believing

in my own abilities and a strong need to express my ideals

and my own style. It was a risk I took trying to satisfy my

ambitions and fulfil my dreams.

THE MEANING OF PLÙS QUE MA VÌE

I remember lying in bed at night and trying to come up with

a brand name and the meaning behind it. Plùs Que Ma Vìe

means more than my life. I want people who wear my designs

to go beyond the normal and expected, beyond the formal.

IDEAL CLIENT

My ideal client is a man who is not afraid to express his

opinions and wishes at work and in everyday life. A confident

man with a strong personality. He likes to invest in clothing

because that thrills him.

CELEBRITIES

One of my goals is to see famous people wearing my brand.

If I had to choose celebrities from the music industry I would

choose hip hop artists like Tyler, The Creator, ASAP Rocky,

Big Sean. I also think Ezra Miller, Johnny Depp would look

great wearing Plùs Que Ma Vìe and maybe Jared Leto.

SHOP PLÙS QUE MA VÌE

My collections are available in selected stores all around the

world, but mostly in Italy, China and Russia. For the best prices

visit our e-commerce site (www.plusquemavie.bigcartel.com).

FUTURE PLANS

Currently we are looking for foreign investors to expand

globally as well as to launch a womenswear line in the near

future. Additionally, we are planning to open a flagship store

and set up a proper marketing and sales strategy for the major

world markets, expanding the possibilities of collaborations

with other brands and sectors.

KURTIS PAUL

Kurtis Paul is a men’s fashion

brand specialising in high quality

bags and accessories. Founded

in 2015 by two brothers from

Manchester, Kurtis Paul is aimed

at the modern gentlemen.

Before starting their own brand, Kurtis and Lloyd

Rayner were both working in the corporate world.

However, they felt too restricted and wanted

an opportunity to express their creativity. The

brothers showed great interest in bags, especially

in those made from leather and canvas, because

of their versatility and their power to influence the

emotion of the wearer. Kurtis and Lloyd believe

that the right bag can completely transform an

outfit and give the owner a sense of pride.

One of the great things about Kurtis Paul is their

eagerness to inject their designs with personality

and make each bag unique. Alfred, Sherlock,

Cromwell and Darwin are the names of the leather

bags from the collection which was launched over

two months ago. The canvas collection is due to

launch very soon. It will contain three styles of

bags, simple in design and available in two stunning

colours (more details upon launch).

Kurtis Paul dreams big and dares to be different.

It’s a brand with two main values - great design

and high quality materials. It’s not the goal of this

family business to compete with the high street. For

them it is about creating fashionable bags, which

last the test of time.

Shop at WWW.KURTISPAUL.COM. Prices from £215.


WOOD TIME FASHION

THE BEGINNINGS

Wilson See is a 28-year-old entrepreneur from Hong

Kong, now living in Germany. After the 1st year of

studying Business Administration and Computer

Science in the University of Hong Kong Wilson started

his first company, which helped other entrepreneurs

with creating their webpages. That is how startups

became one of the major interests of Wilson See.

Wilson was certain that in order to run a successful

startup, you must possess experience, money and a

network. He worked in a teaching centre, a Grouponlike

company in Hong Kong and also opened a bakery

school trying to gain experience, raise money and

create a network of contacts. Finally having the key

components of a successful startup allowed him to

fulfil another lifelong dream. In 2014 he established a

watch-selling brand Wood Time Fashion.

Wilson See is creating watches that not only tell time,

but also remind people of how precious time is and

the importance of it in our lives. Made out of wood,

the watches are simple and modern, suitable for any

occasion. Wilson is a firm believer that education is

the key to improving lives of the poor. That is why

a part of the profits of his company goes towards

providing learning materials for children in Africa,

Cambodia and Korea.

Shop at WOODTIMEFASHION.COM. Prices from £102.

WHAT’S NEXT?

The vision of Wood Time Fashion is to use upcycled

and sustainable materials to make high quality fashion

products. All of the wood used to make watches

is already from FSC certified farms and forests.

Nonetheless, the company is also focusing on the

designs of the products so as not to use the label

sustainable fashion as a selling point. The goal is to

create chic and high quality watches which can be

used to spread the idea of social fashion as well. If

everything goes as planned, soon we will see new

watches with even more innovative materials as well

as expansion of the market in the UK.

HUAWEI P9

The Huawei P9 is the first smartphone co-engineered

with the global iconic brand, Leica Camera AG. The

P9’s dual-lens camera takes smartphone photography

to the next level, allowing people to capture both

vivid colors and striking black and white images.

A groundbreaking moment for event guests included

a first look at an exclusive trailer of the new Huawei

P9 TV commercial starring Henry Cavill and Scarlett

Johansson, Global Product Ambassadors for the Huawei

P9 series. Showcasing the connection between two global

stars in Shanghai and Hollywood, the trailer symbolizes

the partnership between Huawei and Leica and the

intersection of color and black and white. Cavill was joined

at the P9 launch by iconic photographers Mary McCartney

and David Guttenfelder from National Geographic as well

as BBC Global News CEO Jim Egan, Condé Nast Chairman

and Chief Executive Jonathan Newhouse, Vogue China

Publisher Anita Chang and Huawei UK Board Members

Sir Andrew Cahn and Dame Helen Alexander.

“Huawei is excited to give P9 users the best smartphone

photography experience by leveraging the unrivalled

capabilities of Leica, the leader in the world of imaging

for more than 100 years,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei

Consumer Business Group. “Consumers around the world

use their smartphones to take billions of pictures each

year, making photography critical to user experience. P9

users can now capture images with unmatched clarity,

richness and authenticity, with a masterfully designed and

powerful smartphone that looks and feels incredible.”

REINVENTING SMARTPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY

Integrating the design values and engineering excellence of

Huawei and Leica in a smartphone photography system

co-engineered by the two companies, the P9 brings

together best-in-class hardware and software, from

optical lenses, to sensors, to image processing algorithms,

empowering users to capture the highest-quality images.

Key to the P9’s superlative imaging capabilities is a dualcamera

design that fully unleashes the power of Leica’s

optical lenses, renowned for precision and attention

to detail, and subject to the industry’s most stringent

quality screening requirements. The RGB camera on the

P9 specializes in capturing color, while the monochrome

camera is outstanding at acquiring picture detail. The two

rear cameras of the P9 work in tandem to enable users

to create images of superior detail, depth and color. The

P9 truly excels in low-light conditions, as the dual-camera

design guarantees more light and detail can be captured.

Each picture taken by the P9 carries the unique emotional

resonance and timelessness that are the hallmarks of

Leica, as users may choose between three film modes:

their personal preferences. With meticulous calibration

40 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016


Standard, Vivid Colors and Smooth Colors, depending on

of the P9’s camera parameters, each film mode faithfully

renders the authentic color and style of Leica. By selecting

the monochrome mode, P9 users can use their devices

as a true monochrome camera to capture powerful and

evocative black and white images of superior quality.

Deploying Huawei’s Hybrid Focus technology, the P9

captures images with superior speed, accuracy and

stability. The P9 supports camera focusing based on three

methodologies – laser, depth calculation and contrast –

and automatically selects the one that yields the best result

in any given environment.

The wide-aperture photography feature on the P9 allows

users to experiment with innovative visual effects to create

unique images and content. The P9 makes it easy to adjust

the camera aperture to create bokeh and other depth-offield

effects, while keeping the main object in sharp focus.

“Leica and Huawei share an uncompromising commitment

to imaging excellence, and our partnership will put

outstanding photography into the hands of more consumers

around the world,” said Oliver Kaltner, CEO, Leica Camera

AG. “We are deepening our collaboration to give users a

more optimal smartphone photography experience.”

TAKING INDUSTRIAL DESIGN TO A HIGHER LEVEL

The P9 is a masterpiece of state-of the-art industrial

design, with the same minimalist design DNA as earlier

products in Huawei’s acclaimed flagship P-series of

premium smartphones. Each P9 device is a perfect

construct of superior-grade 2.5D glass and an aerospaceclass

aluminum, with diamond-cut edges rounded out by

carefully balanced curvatures.

The 64GB version of the P9 comes in a stunning and

unique Haze Gold finish, setting new industry standards

in industrial design, with the use of techniques including

brushed hairlines and metal polishing at micron-level

precision to create a translucent metal surface. Additionally,

the Ceramic White version of the P9 is smoother than

the painted bodywork of premium cars, reflecting and

refracting light to present different shades of awe-inspiring

colors as ambient conditions change.


POWER AND PERFORMANCE

The P9 is equipped with the power, connectivity and speed that

today’s high-end smartphone user expects from Huawei. With a 5.2-

inch 1080p display, the P9 is powered by the new Kirin 955 2.5GHz

64-bit ARM-based processor for leading-class mobile performance.

The 3,000mAh high-density battery offers P9 users outstanding

mobility and battery life.

Huawei is also unveiling the P9 Plus, featuring a 5.5-inch Press Touch

display and a larger 3,400mAh battery. The P9 Plus also offers

dual-IC Rapid Charge, giving users six hours of talk time after a

10-minute charge.

Leveraging Huawei’s industry-leading capabilities in

telecommunications, the P9 and P9 Plus offer unrivaled new features

including a virtual-triple-antenna architecture, designed for users

who need robust and seamless connectivity to cellular and Wi-Fi

networks to fully harness the power of the mobile Internet no matter

where they are in the world.

The P9 and P9 Plus also protect users’ privacy and information

security with Huawei’s world-leading biometric fingerprint

recognition technology. The enhanced fingerprint sensor allows users

to personalize and safeguard their devices by significantly lowering

the possibility of fraudulent or accidental device access, while also

ensuring users can quickly and securely access their smartphone.

The Huawei P9 is available in Mystic Silver and Titanium Grey. RRP £449 (3GB + 32GB).

JEAN GENIE

WORDS: Kerryn Grady

PHOTOGRAPHY: Kerryn Grady and Al Man

It’s the age-old denim drama for virtually every

female on the planet - finding that perfect pair

of jeans that fit like a second skin and make you

feel fabulous. For some reason, whatever the

body shape, we all struggle. Fortunately, thanks

to London’s premium denim specialists at Trilogy,

there are a talented few who have the covetable

skills to help you find that perfect pair in just three

tries. I know, it all sounds a bit too good to be

true, and what use is a denim specialist in London when you live elsewhere in the

country? Fortunately for us, Liverpool and Birmingham’s John Lewis Love&Found

departments have their very own Trilogy denim maestros!

The process

Liz Forster, 50, is the resident Denim Specialist in the Liverpool

One store. With 30 years of retail experience, Liz knows her

stuff, and was instantly able to tell our pear-shaped volunteer

(and fellow sceptic), Lingaile, and apple-shaped Ali that they

were both at least one jeans size smaller than they thought.

As she explains, “most girls think they are bigger than they

are,” which is part of the struggle when finding the right fit.

Her job involves ‘finding out what the customer is looking for

in terms of cut, colour, style, and advising them on the correct

size, and what style is right for them.’

But how does she do this? Thousands of us can’t do it

ourselves, so how does Liz have this ability? “Reading about

and working with the brands themselves, working out what

the positives and negatives are of each, and understanding

what the fits are” is a good starting point. Liz tries out every

style and brand that comes into the store, and gets to know

what works for different body shapes.

With Trilogy exclusively stocking premium American denim

brands, the customer is guaranteed a higher calibre of jeans.

This obviously also means a higher price point. Is this a deterrent

for her customers? Seemingly not, with Liz estimating eight

out of every 10 customers making a purchase, many of whom

become repeat customers. She explains that premium denim

is designed to keep it’s shape (so no sagging at the bum or

the knees!), the waistbands are pre-shrunken so maintain a

perfect fit, and are overall more durable and longer lasting.

By calculating the cost per wear, the £200-plus price tags

begin to feel more justifiable. A pair can last you years, the

repeat customers return for new washes and to experiment

with different styles.

Liz herself is very much a people person, and has a passion for

selling, and this shows when you watch her work. She is warm,

observant and positive, she is able to read her customers

which makes her so good at working out what they want.

She also credits her age as being a factor in making her older

customers feel more at ease. And despite looking absolutely

fabulous herself, she is very honest about having her own

body issues and insecurities, demonstrating an understanding

of these womens’ body concerns. The denim consultations

are free, but you definitely feel you’re paying for premium

customer service as well as premium denim.

52 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016


On meeting our girls, she talks

through what sort of jeans they

usually wear and why, what

styles they’d like to wear, and

what they want to get out of

their jeans. Lingaile wants a pair

that flatters her curvy figure

that she can still comfortably

move around in. She’s active and

wants to be able to wear her

jeans for day to day activities, so

needs stretch and a good rise

so as not to keep tugging them

up her waist. Sophie, with her

petite and athletic figure is after

denim that doesn’t drown her or

make her look even shorter, and

if possible, something to give her more shape. Ali, who has developed a more appleshaped

figure as she’s gotten older, wants to find a boyfriend jean that is flattering

and can be worn as evening wear as well as day wear.

After these initial questions, Liz talks through the styles they have, explains the types of denim and the brands’ origins,

makes suggestions on the various washes, and advises on how best to care for the denim to give it longevity. For each

girl she selects a couple of styles and sends them off to the changing rooms.

The results

Within two tries, Lingaile has decided on a pair of highrise

skinny jeans by AG denim, which has a comfortable

stretch and don’t restrict her movement at all (as she

demonstrates by high-kicking her legs around the changing

rooms!). A problem for so many pear-shaped girls is finding

a cut that fits on both the waist and the hips. In this style

the high waistband fits perfectly around her tiny waist.

“They’re really stretchy, I can move around, bend down,

sit down… That’s what I was looking for and that’s what

I got! Since they’re really nice and tight I feel sexy, especially

with the heels, I feel really glamorous.”

“Oh my God, these are amazing!” was Sophie’s response

to the first pair of jeans she tried. Despite having been

against a skinny high waisted style, “because they’ve never

really fitted me well before,” she remained open-minded

and agreed to try pairs by Paige Denim and J Brand, and

fell in love with both. Paige won out by a whisker. “They

shaped my bum really well - as far as I’m concerned I don’t

really have a bum, so to have something to give me some

shape and a bit of a figure is a nice change.”

Ali’s on-going search for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans

came to an end as well. Having always tried unflattering,

baggier styles leaving her looking a bit chunky (her words,

not mine!), Liz gave her a slim cut to try, also by Paige

Denim. Going slightly against the denim grain, Liz and Ali

opted for a chic, chino fabric in deep navy, as she wanted

something suitable for evenings. “I’ve been wanting to

find a boyfriend style I can wear with heels for a while -

these ones are really nice because the material’s quite thin

and they’re a slim fit, so they’re quite flattering. Because

they’re not traditional denim I’d wear them somewhere

a bit smarter, like out for a nice meal with my husband.”

I’ll be honest, I was bowled over by Liz’s skills. Each girl

chose a pair in less than three tries, and they all looked

fantastic in them. After a little make-over with make-up

artist Lucy at the Charlotte Tilbury counter and a styling

session with Loved&Found’s stylist Jennifer, our three

girls were photo-ready and oozing a bit of new-found

confidence. Not once throughout this process did I get the

sense the girls were being ‘scrutinised’, Liz had them feeling

completely at ease, and she focused on enhancing their

best assets, rather than working out how to disguise their

worst, making the experience feel very positive. As I said

at the beginning, I was very sceptical, but now I’m quite

keen to give this a go myself. I just need to save my pennies

first - I haven’t waited all this time to discover my perfect

jeans to then not be able to afford them!

Occupation: English Philology

and Pedagogy student

Body shape: Pear

Do you wear jeans often?

Yes, but only when I know I will be doing some activities

that require wearing trousers or when I can’t pick an

outfit!

What are your issues when buying jeans?

I have a hard time finding jeans that aren’t too short. And

I’ve never found a pair that wasn’t loose around my waist.

Often times I buy the ones that are too big around my

waist and I have them altered.

Do you have a brand/style you usually go for? Why

this particular brand/style?

The last two pairs I owned were from Esprit. It’s the only

place where I found jeans that were long enough.

What is the most you normally spend on jeans?

Would you consider paying more for the perfect pair?

I spend about £35. I might spend more if the jeans would

fit perfectly AND be of good quality denim.

Has buying jeans become more troublesome as you’ve gotten older?

It has always been hard to buy trousers.

Are there any styles of jeans you particularly like or dislike?

I don’t like skinny low waist jeans. They are just super uncomfortable as I can’t bend my knees. I prefer high

waist jeans because it’s much more comfortable.

If you were to find the perfect pair of jeans, do you think it would

affect the way you dress? Would you wear denim more often?

If I found a perfect pair, I would wear jeans more often. However, I wouldn’t

wear my skirts and dresses, so my style would become less versatile.

Name: Sophie Hood

Age: 18

Occupation: Tattoo apprentice and

part-time sales assistant

Body shape: Athletic/boyish

Do you wear jeans often?

Every day without fail!

What are your issues when buying jeans?

The legs are either too long, or the bum doesn’t sit quite right on me and sags

Do you have a brand/style you usually go for? Why this particular

brand/style?

Not really, I’ve bought a lot of New Look jeans as they are reasonably

affordable and seem to last!

What is the most you normally spend on jeans? Would you consider

paying more for the perfect pair?

£15 at most, I would if it meant they would fit properly in all the right places.


Has buying jeans become more troublesome as you’ve gotten older?

No, they’ve always fitted poorly

Are there any styles of jeans you particularly like or dislike?

I love skinny or drainpipe jeans, because the compliment my muscular legs. I don’t like “mom” jeans, boyfriend or flares

as they tend to drown me out

If you were to find the perfect pair of jeans, do you think it would affect the way you dress? Would you wear

denim more often?

It probably would affect how I dress, I’d be able to wear clothing that didn’t hide my backside as I would hope the jeans

wouldn’t sag or fit poorly. I’d wear denim a lot more frequently!

Name: Ali Belloni

Age: 34

Occupation: Medicine student

Body shape: Apple

Do you wear jeans often?

Most days when I’m not in work. Probably too often!

What are your issues when buying jeans?

Trying to disguise my apple-y stomach. Also as a

student, I am usually on a budget.

Do you have a brand/style you usually go for?

Why this particular brand/style?

I usually go for low-waisted jeans because I think they

suit my shape better. I could be totally wrong about

that, maybe I’ll find out today! I also try to go for

denim with a bit of stretch to it.

What is the most you normally spend on jeans?

Would you consider paying more for the

perfect pair?

I am usually too impatient to spend time looking for

the ideal pair, so I justify a quick purchase by not

spending much. I usually get H&M so don’t pay more

than about £30. If I could find some that really suited

me then I would definitely pay more.

Has buying jeans become more troublesome as

you’ve gotten older?

Yes - mainly because I’ve been gradually getting bigger.

I also have less time to shop... and don’t really enjoy

it (am I allowed to say that in a fashion magazine!?)

Are there any styles of jeans you particularly like or dislike?

I always go for a straight leg - I run away from anything that goes out even slightly because it reminds of the

bootcut and flares wearing days of my youth, which makes me cringe. I’d love to get some boyfriend jeans

because they look so good on other people and I love the idea of wearing them with a stiletto heel, but I think

they just make me look even bigger. I am also scared of anything high waisted as I am pretty sure that’s a

definite no go for apples.

If you were to find the perfect pair of jeans, do you think it would affect the way you dress? Would

you wear denim more often?

If I had the perfect pair of jeans for me then I hope it would give me the confidence to be more adventurous

with the rest of my outfit.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER

UNVEILS STASH

Sarah Jessica Parker is revealing the fragrance she’s always wanted to create.

STASH is the culmination of her long love affair with scent…and it breaks

all the rules. It is unapologetically sexy and thoroughly addictive.

“When we were creating this fragrance it felt so original, unique and subversive…like we were working on a secret

government project. I thought of the name STASH, because the fragrance came to resemble a precious stone – something

you have to stash away because it’s so valuable,” explains Sarah Jessica Parker. “There’s a Dr. Seuss book called ‘Oh, the

Places You’ll Go!’ When people smell this… oh the places that it will go. The bags, the briefcases, the pockets, the trench

coat pockets, the backpacks, the subways, the airplanes. No one is going to leave it behind.”

Parker is using the power of suggestion to help fans discover the secret of

STASH. A mysterious global street art campaign is teasing the fragrance’s

ultimate reveal. Nearly 100 bustling sidewalks and iconic New York City and Los

Angeles locations have been tagged with #ComeandFindIt in chalk art, spurring

consumers to stop, think – “Who wrote this?” “What does it mean?” – and

hopefully share on social. Parker herself teased the art on Instagram via several

posts, which led to a final reveal of a thirty second video of the campaign ad.

ABOUT STASH

Sarah Jessica Parker worked closely with IFF perfumers

Clement Gavarry and Laurent Le Guernec who helped

create her first fragrance, LOVELY. STASH is a sensual

aromatic woody Eau de Parfum Elixir Spray. It wraps raw,

sexy masculine notes with flirtatious, feminine notes to

create a universally sexy scent.

TOP NOTES: grapefruit zest, black pepper and sage

MIDDLE NOTES: cedarwood atlas, patchouli, ginger lily and

pistachio

DRY NOTES: olibanum, massoia wood, vetiver and musk

ABOUT THE BOTTLE

Inspired by an apothecary glass, STASH’s bottle is

minimalistic, yet sophisticated, with clean lines and soft curves. A satin black and gold rimmed cap

with twisted black twine and a gold medallion seal the elixir within. The fragrance’s name is written in gold on a ripped

piece of black gaffer tape, and signed with the designer’s iconic initials – SJP.

FACIAL FILLERS:

WHAT’S THE COST?

WORDS: Lucy Mckeown

PHOTOGRAPHY: Charlotte Graham

About six months ago, I noticed a disturbing trend on my Instagram feed. It went above

and beyond the somewhat frivolous body challenges where girls were using shot glasses

to enhance their lips (thanks Kylie J!) or hiding their tiny teenage waists behind a sheet of

A4 paper. I'm talking about the modern phenomenon that is the Duck Face....

Girls as young as 16 are having their faces cosmetically enhanced with filler injections, often

with absolutely disastrous consequences, which we will talk about later. I'm 35, and I have

always accepted that ageing is inevitable. The trick is to

do it gracefully, right? Well I was wrong.

I started asking women about their experiences with

cosmetic fillers, and was absolutely astounded by how

many people have them now, and that they can fix

anything from a tiny wrinkle to your entire profile shape.

Possibly the most disturbing thing that I discovered on

my filler quest was that women are more often than not

putting themselves at great physical risk in their search

for the perfect Kylie Jenner lips, or a chance to turn the

clock back by 10 years. I wanted to find out what was so

good about these 30 second injections that it would make

women put their health at risk just to be able to afford

their yearly top ups. I asked our readers for their personal

recommendations for clinics in Liverpool. I wanted an

establishment that absolutely represented good practice

and The White Rooms Clinic came out a clear favourite.

2016 Fall | Issue 7 #INSPO 77


I approached them for an initial

consultation and a chat with their

lead nurse, Clare Corless. Clare is a

master’s level registered nurse who

has been working in aesthetics for

over 12 years. It's safe to say that

there is probably nothing she doesn't

know about cosmetic procedures and

the risks they can carry if they aren't

properly administered. During our first

meeting, Clare was very focused and passionate about the industry she works in, and I could see the satisfaction she gets

from helping her clients, whether that is from physical enhancements or the increase in their self esteem.

I asked Clare about some of the horror stories I had been told when researching for this article. They varied from skin

infections due to poor hygiene, to exploding lips (I wish I was joking) right through to women meeting unregistered nurses/

midwives/clinicians in car parks to be injected in their cars for £40. Clare was not phased and revealed that a lot of her

work involves fixing mistakes when people have gone for the cheapest place they could find. It's not just hygiene you need

to consider. Clare informed me that if you're having fillers around your mouth and the practitioner doesn't understand

your facial anatomy properly there is a chance they can hit your main facial artery and actually blind you.

Clare took me through a full consultation that required medical disclosure, history of allergies, medication I was taking, even

dental or gum issues (this is due to the fillers needing to be massaged from the inside which can transfer infection from

your gums to the surface of your skin).

As I had never thought about ageing in a way that could be treated, I let Clare guide the process and allowed her to use

her incredibly professional judgment as to what cosmetic injections would be most suitable for me. (Just a little side note:

Clare is one of the warmest, most relaxing people I've ever met and any nerves I had at the beginning of this process

vanished as soon as she started talking!)

THE PROCEDURE

Clare was very complimentary about my skin but we decided on some very light Botox in my forehead to lift my brow

slightly and then some strategically placed Juvederm fillers around my mouth (marionette lines), centre of my cheeks and

in some lines at the top of my cheekbones/near my eyes. Clare marked out the areas that would be treated in white pencil

and reassured me that the injections wouldn't hurt as they also contain a mild anaesthetic.

78 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016


My Botox was done first. This treatment takes 1-2 weeks to

be fully effective. After that time a good practitioner will want

to see you again to make sure that everything is even and

that there are no complications. Then my fillers... I was able

to watch Clare work her magic in the mirror and to say I was

utterly astonished by the immediate smoothing effect is an

understatement! My skin went from looking tired (which I hadn't

noticed before) to smooth, plump and radiant in an instant.

Watching Clare work in a spotless environment following all

the correct guidelines and legal requirements really made me

wonder why women will go through this in their kitchens, cars

and even toilets. Clare is extremely concerned that in a few

years time we will have an epidemic of hepatitis cases as she

knows of practitioners who will allow their clients to share

syringes of filler. They think by replacing the needle tip that

they are preventing cross contamination when in actual fact,

a syringe will automatically suck in some of your blood or fluid

from under the skin and retain it. The next person

that uses the solution will have it injected into them

alongside their precious fillers. Scary, right?

This whole journey has been extremely interesting and

mind expanding for me. It raised questions not only

about professional practice, but the pressure some

women feel to stay youthful or have the perfect lips or

the most beautiful nose etc. Ultimately, I am absolutely

delighted with the enhancements I had. My skin looks

fresh and signs of tiredness are much less noticeable. I

will definitely be having them topped up in a year’s time

and I couldn't let anyone else but Clare do them now.

ADVICE

* Do your research. By the time you settle on a

practitioner you should have absolutely no doubts

about their capabilities, professionalism or qualifications.

* Go to a clinic. Ladies, please stop getting injected at

home/at parties/in cars/whilst sat on the loo. The risk

of infection is absolutely no joke and while you think

you are saving yourself £20, you could open yourself

up to some extremely nasty (and costly!) problems.

* Seek out registered clinical nurses. A midwife is not

a cosmetic nurse.

* Ask questions. Your practitioner should know

everything there is know about the procedure you are

about to have. If they don't or you feel like they are

giving false information, walk away.

* Be critical of hygiene standards. It might sound self

explanatory but a good practitioner won't allow you to share a syringe or inject you in an unsanitary environment.

* Read. Health Education England released new guidelines for anyone administering non-surgical cosmetic procedures earlier

this year: hee.nhs.uk/news-events/news/new-qualifications-unveiled-improve-safety-non-surgical-cosmetic-procedures

The White Rooms is an independent clinic situated

on Smithdown Road in Liverpool and staffed with

the highest qualified nurses around. They offer a

full range of treatments to suit anyone.

BE GOOD TO

Bronnley use hand crafted methods to blend nature’s

finest ingredients into enchanting collections that

captivate your senses. The NEW Pink Peony and

Rhubarb collection is no exception, making it a beautiful

floral addition to the much-loved classic Bronnley bath

and body products.

As beautiful in bud as when in bloom, the peony in bloom

performs a botanical ballet, as layers of translucent petals

gracefully unfold. Its exquisite scent soulfully transitions

from fresh and green to a captivating floral bouquet.

Selecting one of nature’s grandest flowers and enriching

its familiar and classic aroma with a twist of rhubarb to

create an intriguing, modern scent.

In a tantalising opening, the principle peony note is

freshened with the captivating aroma of red apple’s crunchy skin and sweet flesh, blended with rhubarb leaves that

gently fan jasmine, gardenia and rose.

Deeper in the heart of the scent, these scattered tones of precious petals are layered with the intriguing aroma of fruity

rhubarb stems, lightly spiced with bright, clove-like and peppery nuances. While as a grand finale, of carnation and the

addition of sparkling white musk adds depth, elegance and lasting pleasure.

The contemporary and modern floral character of Pink Peony and Rhubarb is magnificently represented in the

packaging, beautifully illustrated by award-winning British botanical artist Helen Campbell.

“As Bronnley continue to bring modern interpretations to our brand packaging whilst retaining our brand ethos, we are

thrilled to be working with Helen Campbell on the new Pink Peony & Rhubarb Collection. With such a great talent and

passion for botanical illustration; bringing such a modern take on a classic art, Helen was the natural artist for Bronnley

to partner with for this exciting new launch.” — Dionne Anderson, Managing Director, Bronnley.

Helen’s exquisite interpretation of the pink peony adorns each product within this gorgeous new range, adding to the

packaging her signature artistic style, whilst remaining true to Bronnley ‘s brand DNA: “As a botanical artist living in

one of the most beautiful parts of the English countryside, being able to capture the wonderful array of flowers that

grow here, in this style of illustration, is extremely special to me. Working with Bronnley, who have an incredible British

heritage that appreciates and utilises the beauty of the natural floral world we live in was a perfect collaboration for

me. With their exquisite detail, Pink Peonies are one of my favourite flowers to paint and this beautiful new fragrance

collection has captured the bouquet perfectly to provide a wonderful all round immersive Pink Peony experience! “—

Helen Campbell, Artist.

The Pink Peony & Rhubarb delights the senses with its dramatic partnering of flowers and fruits in a floral fragrance

and complementing bath and body range that’s contemporary and stylish.

IPHONE 7 & IPHONE 7 PLUS

Images: Apple

Apple® introduced iPhone® 7

and iPhone 7 Plus, the best, most

advanced iPhone ever, packed with

unique innovations that improve

all the ways iPhone is used every

day. The new iPhone features new

advanced camera systems that take

pictures like never before, more

power and performance with the

best battery life ever in an iPhone,

immersive stereo speakers, wide

color system from camera to display,

two new beautiful finishes, and is the

first water and dust resistant iPhone.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be

available in more than 25 countries

beginning Friday, September 16.

“iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus dramatically improve every

aspect of the iPhone experience, reaching a new level of

innovation and precision to make this the best iPhone

we have ever made,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior

vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The completely

redesigned cameras shoot incredible photos and videos

day or night, the A10 Fusion chip delivers the best battery

life ever in an iPhone, and an entirely new stereo speaker

system provides twice the sound, all within the first water

and dust resistant iPhone.”

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come in a gorgeous

design in silver, gold and rose gold finishes and introduce

two all-new black finishes, a beautiful black finish that

has an anodized matte appearance, and an innovative

jet black finish that has a deep, high-gloss look. The new

jet black finish is accomplished through an innovative

nine-step process of anodization and polish for a uniform,

glossy finish. An entirely reengineered enclosure results

in a water resistant iPhone offering protection like never

before against spills, splashes and dust.

The new iPhone features the brightest, most colorful

Retina® HD display ever in an iPhone, now with a

wide color gamut for cinema-standard colors, greater

color saturation and the best color management in the

smartphone industry.
