All Black, Always

Words by Matt Huxley Well, well. Long time no see blog. So where have I been? Taking some time out for me? Somewhat, but at least now I have a masters degree (and a few extra kilos courtesy of stress eating central). But more than just being hectically busy, I’ve been a bit disillusioned with…

Daily Exfoliation: The Benefits

Words by Matt Huxley Exfoliation is one of those controversial topics in skincare. How often? How rough is too rough? Liquid or physical? Whilst I’m a huge fan of a good physical scrub every now and then, I find that for my skin a light daily exfoliant is best in order to keep it nice…

An Easy Morning Skincare Routine

Words by Matt Huxley I am under no illusions that most people are not quite as extra with their skincare as I am. I do genuinely see a need for 4-5 cleansers on the go at one time. I am informed however that the majority of people are not like this. Frankly it’s weird. So…

Fearless

Words by Matt Huxley Fearlessness is a quality oft sought-after but very infrequently is it possessed by an individual. We are now in a time where some of us live our lives dictated by fear. I for one, have never been one to worry about things outside of my control, or of other people’s opinions.…

Akira Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley A perpetual embodiment of the androgynous, oriental aesthetic, the Akira show is always one of brilliant craftsmanship, inspired ideas and unique silhouettes. Think longline layers, loose fits, and a largely white colour palette. Highlights of this collection included a turquoise coat/pant set with a white and beige granddad collar shirt. It was…

Vmajor Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley As the international show for MBFWA, Vmajor had a lot of expectations to meet, and they didn’t disappoint. Bringing back the sexy 70s in a retro-modern way that I certainly didn’t see coming. Think fringing added to skirt and top edges and sides. Retro plastic earrings, billowing silk dresses with large…
