Dove Soft Feel Antiperspirant

Containing ¼ moisturising cream, vitamin E and with 0% alcohol, the new Dove Soft Feel antiperspirant improves the look and feel of the underarm skin whilst also providing 48hrs protection.

The delicate powdery scent also gives a feeling of softness and was created by one of the leading French fragrance houses:  Givaudan. The warm powdery fragrance has feminine floral heart notes of freesia and peony with base notes of warm wood, amber and creamy musk. Although a gorgeous smell, the fragrance is so light that it allows your favourite perfume to take centre stage..

Available in compressed aerosol of 125ml and 75ml plus a 50ml roll on.

Ong-Oaj Pairam AW15 Collection

This season Ong-Oaj Pairam celebrates the iconic pop culture and celebrity status in all its oversized excessive glamorous indulgence and luxurious glory.

His prints take on a Warhol like approach which can be clearly seen in the recurring image of the young Elizabeth Taylor on an oversized swing coat and the fitted tailored coat.

Other prints take on a camouflage appearance creating a suggestion of danger.  Ong’s urban camouflage is void of any militaristic forms; instead one is an abstract creation of paparazzi cameras and bulbs whilst the other shows a nocturnal animal (akin to the cute bush baby) caught in headlights.

These animals also appear on hand embroidery using the same techniques that are used in military garments.

Ong’s celebration of iconic pop culture isn’t all fame, money and glamour as he plays with themes of vulnerability and at times the vulgarity often associated with a celebrity lifestyle.  Exposing the person underneath are the sheer dresses adorned with Ong’s signature hand embroidered appliqués. This season the appliqués include cameras and animals caught in headlights – a visual metaphor to startled celebrities caught by the paparazzi’s flashing bulbs.

Flying High with Bomber Jackets

It doesn’t matter what you wear underneath as these two coats you definitely won’t want to take off!
