Anglo-Russian brand Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched stateside, and I had the chance to play around with some of their products. Initially I was intrigued because it’s a Moscow-based brand, and well….I’ve never, that I’m aware of, come across a luxury makeup brand from there.
Comme des Garçons x Stephen Jones have just launched their second fragrance in six years. Available at the Trading Museum Comme des Garçons (54 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris – there is currently an exhibition of Stephen Jones hats), and at Dover Street Market for $165, it fittingly comes in hat box-shaped packaging stuffed with white netting.
Here’s a pairing that would have likely never happened were Olivier Theyskens still at the helm of Nina Ricci (I so miss him there!). The brand has collaborated with Ladurée for a new scent, La Tentation de Nina. Well, it could have happened with Theyskens, but I feel like it would have resulted in a caviar macaron-inspired perfume or something!
I am creature of habit when it comes to fragrance. Partly because I want people to know who’s there when I creep up behind them (no, but really), and partly so that my boy will think of me when he smells my perfume. Florals are my favorite – especially white flowers like gardenia – which is why the new Cartier La Panthere eau de parfum seems made for me.
