The CHANEL Winter 2017 eyewear collection - Luxarama!

Ever since she made the Duke of Westminster’s tweed jackets her own, Gabrielle Chanel has established this English woollen fabric as a timeless luxury. Essence of the CHANEL look, it remains one of the great sources of inspiration at the House, for fashion but also for watchmaking and this season, for the world of eyewear.

The iconic tweed dresses up this winter’s sunglasses and optical frames in a unique version, its motif cast in metal, just like a real piece of jewellery.

5 designs to light up the winter months, conceived like essential accessories that slip instinctively into daily life, as their shapes subtly twist the classic lines.

The palette of black, navy blue, deep red, khaki and pine green, nude and tortoiseshell adorns urban and elegant frames enhanced with a bridge or temples dressed with this metallic tweed for a pure rock chic allure.

Two pairs of sunglasses, round and pilot, adopt a boyish appearance; ultra-flat and delicately encircled with metal, they have a double bridge: one that rests at the top of the nose and the other at the start of the forehead.

A second pilot design plays the featherweight abandoning metal for acetate and with just one bridge. It is echoed by a set of cat-eye frames. The timeless XL square joins this winter panoply, its temples embellished with a large metal ribbon with a tweed aspect for an ultra-feminine look.

The opticals adopt the same shapes as the sunglasses; lightweight and endowed with ultra-thin temples, they resume the same game of single or double bridges and are also finished with this precious tweed.

A collection of glasses that’s easy to wear, both casual and refined, to be discovered in the boutiques from September 2017.

Perth fashion festival: The TPFF 2017 OPENING NIGHT

Telstra Perth Fashion Festival’s new-look Fashion Paramount opened last night with a runway spectacle celebrating the beauty of the female form.

In one of the boldest shows seen to date, Opening Night  unfolded with a powerful line-up of leading local and national designers at Crown Pyramid on Tuesday September 12.

Alice McCall, Albus Lumen, Bec & Bridge, Christopher Esber, Empire Rose and Monster Alphabets revealed their latest collections in a capsule show dedicated to femininity and the modern woman.

Presented by AMP Capital Shopping Centres, the showcase proved how these six style influencers are shaping the Australian fashion industry with their design talent and brave vision.

Chic, bohemian and pretty, Alice McCall’s collection of playsuits, party dresses and statement pieces focused on intricate detailing and delicate hand-embroidery.

In contrast, Albus Lumen is low-key, minimalist and relaxed, letting simple shapes, striking contrasts and premium fabrications do the talking.

Bec & Bridge creates garments for the ‘it girl’, combining contoured lines with sleek silhouettes and confident colour palettes for collections that are contemporary and progressive.

Fresh from showing at New York Fashion Week earlier this year, Christopher Esber has been lauded for his precision tailoring and purity of expression and is a true force to be reckoned with on the Australian fashion scene.

Cult favourite Empire Rose is the most established brand on the line-up and is renowned for luxurious fabrics, majestic prints and a romantic sense of poetic mysticism.

Acclaimed emerging WA label Monster Alphabets rounds out the cast in fitting style, mixing an architectural approach with a sense of form, light and structure.

Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Director Mariella Harvey-Hanrahan said the Opening Night line-up was testament to the strength of the Australian fashion industry.“I am so honoured to have six Australian fashion powerhouses band together to officially open this year’s Fashion Paramount,” Ms Harvey-Hanrahan said.

“We always try to make Opening Night to be bigger and better every year and I think we have certainly achieved that goal with this incredible feast of style and creativity.

Study reveals - Sydney in the Top 10 of the least stressful cities in the world

The 2017 Stressful City Index Study by online dry cleaning service Zipjet analysed causes of stress such as household debt, unemployment levels and poor mental health among other mitigating factors to determine the most and least stressful cities in the world.

Stuttgart, Germany is the least stressful city, ranking highly for green spaces, good mental health of citizens and family purchase power.

Baghdad, Iraq is revealed as the most stressful city, ranking low for public transport, unemployment rates, perception of security and gender equality.

Brussels, Belgium is the 2nd most stressful city in Europe due to high unemployment levels.

To select the cities in the ranking, Zipjet studied 500 locations based on data relating to the cities’ infrastructure, pollution levels, financial stability and the quality of life for its citizens.

Within these categories criteria such as household debt, perception of security, number of green spaces, unemployment levels, population density and racial & gender equality, were researched, along with additional factors which adversely affect mental health, such as number of sunshine hours.

Each factor was ranked out of 10 with a score of 1 indicating the least amount of stress and a score of 10 indicating the most. A final score was then calculated for each city to allow comparability.

“Mental health problems are on the rise worldwide, with stress being a trigger and contributing factor towards this increase. We hope that by pinpointing how the least stressful cities are managing this issue, those cities struggling with a stressed out population can overcome it.” stated Managing Director of ZipJet, Florian Faerber. “We’re happy to be a part of the wave of digitalization working to reduce stress all around the world.”
