Cotton Candy: boho goes West

When bohemian sentiments and cowgirl love collide, the results are bound to be a dream. L.A label Cotton Candy presents a fall 2014 collection – titled ‘Desert Rose’ – that perfectly blends boho and Western in a way that’s both sexy, cool, and now. Floral prints coexist with lace-up thigh high boots, crop tops and suede, accessorised perfectly by turquoise studded jewellery and fishtail braids.

A simple kind of beautiful

Filtered through Vivia Tan‘s creative mind-set, and refined through the unforgiving eye of the camera, the simple kind of beautiful can’t help but deepen and materialize within Francielle P. Machado’s easeful series of portraits that are either soaked in faded colours, or drained of any sign of hue, replete with light, or grazed in soft shadows. Caught in motion, sensible and revealing, the photo shoot…

Swim luxe and the body to match it

It never gets old, nor vapid, nor uninspiring, because there’s just too much beauty contouring the summer tableau shaped by wave after wave of clear blue water, gently portraying the modern siren at shore, her hair sun-soaked, her body a wonderland. With Jose Luis Cunha behind lens, the beach opens up enigmatic and boundless, made whole with both breathtaking views and tantalizing silhouettes, breathing life…

Beauty unsurpassed, grace unlike any other

Horses may just epitomize the best of beauty, dignity and grace, mirroring the kind of softness that is shielded by strength, and the kind of spirit that is breathed into freedom. They are majestic living beings lending us the wings that we lack, the independence that we crave, the love that we deserve. And there’s an unbreakable bond tying human and horse, a profound connection…

What to wear to the beach: 11 outfit ideas

The perfect beach attire should be built upon a precise mix of femininity and comfort, of lightweight fabrics and clean cuts, of chic silhouettes, bold colours and fun prints.

The empty bed replete with beauty

An empty bed, bearing nothing but the comforting allure of its white sheets is the perfect place to disappear in, eyes closed, brain shutdown, the world at a distance. Or better yet, the perfect foundation to build a fantasy upon, eyes wide open, mind running wild, an intimate universe gradually awakening. Replete with beauty, awash with subtle sensuality, Dhyan & Benjamin‘s photo shoot infuses fashion…
