Twin Picks: Mascara

25.02.2014 | Beauty | BY:

It’s one of those can’t-leave-the-house-without-it-on products, one that has the power to make you look more awake at 8am on a miserable Monday morning. That’s a great power indeed. Mascara just so happened to be big news at the Prada AW14 show in Milan. Pat McGrath created a clumpy lash look for Miuccia Prada’s vision which saw models walk the catwalk with large defined eyes that complimented their fresh nude faces. This look is also a SS14 favourite, so here Twin picks some of the best mascaras on the market today.

EYEKO Fat Brush Mascara, £15, spacenk.com & Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long Wear Mascara, £19, houseoffraser.com

Clarins Be Long Mascara, £21, clarins.co.uk & Butter London WINK Mascara Union Jack Black, £15, butterlondon.co.uk

One can now find Prada’s new jewellery collection in stores, and aren’t we excited! It is a colour explosion with a wide range of cuffs, bangles, bracelets and earrings, made with unexpected materials such as saffiano leather, crystals and exotic crocodile skin.

The collection is inspired by the innovation and seductive glamour of 1940s haute jewellery. Each piece is finely crafted using artisanal haute jewellery techniques and exquisite detailing.

The collection brings together Prada’s signature Saffiano textured leather in rich shades of orange, emerald green and turquoise with bold formations of geometric crystals, inspired by the art deco era and the natural world.

The Life Of Candy

03.04.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Fashion film has emerged as an innovative new approach to the genre, but leave it to Prada to pull out the big guns. For their new fragrance Candy L’Eau – a citrus, sweet pea and benzoin-scented flanker to the hit original created by Daniela Andrier – the house decided to let Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola create their own interpretation of the scent.

French actress Léa Seydoux stars in the playful short as the coquettish and love-torn protagonist, Candy. Just like this scent is a more lightweight interpretation of the 2011 original, Candy L’Eau is a playful take on joie de vivre. And too good to miss.

Watch the film and behind the scenes footage below.

Prada World

19.06.2012 | Blog | BY:

Prada’s new A/W 12 campaign dropped into Twin’s inbox this week. Specifically, two images shot by Steven Meisel who unfailingly serves up polished images to match Prada’s peerless vision.

Not afraid to carve out her own niche, this time Miuccia’s models inhabit a futuristic vision that glitches forward by way of Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange. Those geometric print belted trouser suits that were introduced to us a few months ago are worn with dark-eyed stares, in what Prada calls a “futuristic enclosure” of Tetris like orange and white carpeted steps.

By creating her own video game “level” complete with model avatars, Prada has engendered her own world. A virtual reality,  in which we can play along with her glorious, unabashed fashion intellectualism. We’re sure her  printed suits with flared cropped pants, dip dyed tresses and rubber galoshes are set to be in our fashion future.

Treasure Trove

22.11.2011 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Miu Miu’s new flagship store in the heart of Toyko is a three tiered carousel packed with the kind of playful luxury that we’ve come to expect of Prada’s little sister. Sugary handbags and shoes jostle like bright jewels on gilt shelves in the newly opened Ginza Echogoya district shop.

Between the damask sofas, gold framed mirrors and crystal counters there’s no mistaking the opulence. But the Miu Miu girl has always worn luxury with an independent spirit and the store is more than a shopping experience, it’s an immaculate interpretation of the brand’s aesthetic vision. Prepare to lose yourself.

Baby it’s cold outside

29.09.2010 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Though fashion’s fanfare is currently en route to Paris for the SS/11 collections, the nip in the air means we’re focused on what to wear for warmth right now. And judging by their winter campaign – shot by Josh Olins and styled by Kate Phelan – Topshop could have the answer.

This series of soft and autumnal images stars Ajak Deng (she of Prada catwalk fame) and Gwen Loos in an abundance of cable knits, shearling capes, camel hues and leather (or pleather). We’re coveting the hooded scarves and heavy-duty satchels – but love that the campaign is full of ideas that don’t cost a thing. Just add a turn-up here and a belted skirt there, layer like crazy and you’ll be bang on trend.

Doll Parts

29.04.2010 | Art , Fashion | BY:

Is it us or do these rather magnificent mannequins spotted in the Prada window look uncannily like Twin’s favourite model, Freja Beha Erichsen? Clever Miuccia. Ok so it’s not Freja’s typical tomboyish look – but we covet the hell out these summery, graphic print day dresses. Next stop Portofino.
