Bras N Things’ Head of Marketing Natalie Chalmers said, “After the year we’ve all had, we knew we wanted to make this year’s Christmas campaign really special. This year changed and challenged many of us, but it was also a chance to take stock and learn to enjoy the little things that bring us joy. So that’s what we want to celebrate with this campaign – The Little Things. It’s time to plan surprises, give to the people we care about and, of course, treat ourselves because we could all use a little sparkle, joy and love for Christmas this year.”

Head of Product at Bras N Things, Jessica Lauppe-Guy said, “This year it was more important than ever for us to design collections that would really speak to our customers’ changing needs and bring a little joy after the year that has been.

“We have really focused on comfort combined with beautiful designs, because no one should ever have to sacrifice fashion to feel comfortable. We also put in extra little design details for a touch of something special and ensured we had the ‘wow’ factor for those times when you just need to feel instantly fabulous.

“This range has all the Christmas favourites – vibrant reds and greens, sparkle and festive accessories – as well as a super fun summer range inspired by the staycations most of us are planning this year. It’s the perfect time to take a road trip around our beautiful country with our versatile sleep pieces that can be worn as casual outerwear with lingerie or at the beach with swimwear – all in bright and happy colours!”

For something a little extra special, you can’t go past the Gia set in fire red. Featuring balconette cup design, adjustable and removable next strap so it can be worn strapless, stunning satin and lace trim, cut outs and gold hardware studding – it’s the ultimate in decadent lingerie with a sassy Christmas twist.

Need to indulge? Who doesn’t! Time to treat yourself to the French inspired Indulge range, designed to have you feeling lush as you head into the festive season. Wear the ‘cut out’ trend in the most comfortable way possible – with beige mesh panels that contrast with luxe satin and lace – to make a statement.

For the perfect gift, you can’t go past Bras N Things super soft satin sleepwear. Available in a range of styles to suit every taste – cami, slip, shorts and button shirt – with matching robe and lingerie sets, there are so many ways to mix and match to create a personalised gift for someone special.

PUMA signs global popstar Dua Lipa

Global pop superstar Dua Lipa has joined the PUMA family and will be the newest face of the company’s women’s business. Dua will collaborate with the global sports brand to help inspire women around the world, not just by being featured in global campaigns, but through important inclusive initiatives close to her heart.

“I am so excited to announce my partnership with PUMA,” said Dua Lipa. “From performance rehearsals to hiking in the hills, it’s important to feel comfortable & look good. I’ve got so many ideas for the projects and campaigns I’ll be taking part in and look forward to bringing them all to life with my PUMA family.”

Dua Lipa and PUMA share the same values of being determined, confident, joyful, and brave. Dua is not only a powerful influence for millions of young women, but she has also been an advocate to raise awareness around women’s issues and gender equality. This is why in 2021 she will be the headliner of PUMA’s “She Moves Us” campaign, focusing on inspiring women who move together to achieve and connect through sport and culture.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dua to our family”, said Adam Petrick, PUMA’s Global Director of Brand and Marketing. “We were drawn towards her creativity, passion, drive, and the way in which she resonates with the young female consumer. But most importantly, we were moved by her authentic passion to close the gender gap and look forward to supporting her through several brand initiatives we have planned together. We think she embodies what today’s consumer is looking for in a role model.”

 Dua Lipa has been built an extraordinary career in a very short time. She released Future Nostalgia, her #1 UK sophomore album, this year to worldwide acclaim. Upon release, Future Nostalgia was the most streamed album in a day by a British female artist globally in Spotify history and has over 4.5 billion streams to date. Dua is the biggest female artist in the world on Spotify and is currently the third biggest artist overall with nearly 60 million monthly listeners.
The album’s certified platinum lead single “Don’t Start Now” is a worldwide hit with one billion streams on Spotify, and a #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, a career high for the pop star. Dua followed the success of “Don’t Start Now” by releasing smash UK single “Physical,” and her US Top 40 #1 “Break My Heart.” Future Nostalgia is the follow up to Dua’s eponymous 2017 debut, which is certified platinum and spawned 6 platinum tracks. She made BRIT Award history in 2018 by becoming the first female artist to pick up five nominations, with two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist and received two Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording in early 2019.

PUMA kicks off their multi-year partnership with Dua Lipa as presenting sponsors of her fun-filled “Studio 2054” virtual performance where both she and her dancers will wear PUMA. As a surprise to her fans, PUMA is offering a limited batch of discounted tickets for the performance. To access these tickets, click here.

T Australia: New magazine launching in 2021 - The New York Times Style Magazine

In a coup for Australia’s media landscape, a new magazine T Australia: The New York Times Style Magazine will launch in early 2021.

Based on the highly influential flagship edition of T: The New York Times Style Magazine,
T Australia: The New York Times Style Magazine will be a sophisticated quarterly print magazine supported by a dynamic online publication. T Magazine is published by The New York Times Company 11 times a year and is dedicated to the coverage of fashion, culture, beauty, design and travel; it also has licensed editions in China, Japan, Singapore and Qatar.

Through a licensing agreement with The New York Times Licensing Group (NYTLicensing),
T Australia will feature exclusive content, video and the very latest news in creative culture and style. Published and edited by celebrated Australian journalist Katarina Kroslakova, an authority on curating luxury experiences, T Australia will be a welcome offering in Australian magazines.

T Australia will showcase culture, fashion, food, wine, architecture, interiors, travel, craftsmanship and society within each issue, capturing the definitive collections and trends that respond to today’s global narrative, from emerging artists to iconic creators. The magazine will explore how Australians are feeling now, what they are wearing, where they would like to travel to next, what they like to eat and drink, and which live performances they plan to see next. It will put a unique lens on Australian life and, of course, our inimitable Australian style.

T Australia will combine original regional content with coverage, photographs and commentary from the flagship edition of T: The New York Times Style Magazine. As the former Editor of the Australian Financial Review’s Life & Leisure and Luxury magazines, now Managing Director of content creation agency KK Ink Pty Ltd and custom publishing house KK Press Pty Ltd, Editor of Maserati’s Il Tridente magazine and former Harper’s Bazaar columnist, Katarina lives and breathes magazines and knows exactly what is missing in the market for readers of style magazines in Australia.

“The New York Times has a significant digital readership in Australia, so it makes sense to serve this influential audience content that’s even more relevant to them – with local authority and global context. This year has been extraordinarily challenging for the media landscape in Australia, and for magazines in particular. Like many, I miss the magazines that have gone. The impacts of COVID-19 have made us love magazines even more, with subscription rates going through the roof. People want their favourite magazines – and some new ones,” said Katarina.

“With the current gap in the market, I feel the time is right to introduce a new magazine to Australia – and I can’t think of a more prestigious brand than The New York Times. I am so thrilled to be collaborating with them. I came to Australia from Czechoslovakia when I was eight years old and I didn’t speak a word of English. Now I have the honour of publishing a magazine for this global icon; it’s something that I couldn’t have ever imagined,” she added.

Michael Greenspon, Global Head of NYTLicensing and Print Innovation for The New York Times, said: “T Magazine is an essential cornerstone of the global coverage of The New York Times – one of the world’s most impactful media organisations. T Magazine’s distinctive and diverse coverage celebrates the people who challenge us to see, read, listen, wear and live differently, allowing us to connect with a highly sophisticated and influential audience here in the United States. We are excited to work with Katarina and the KK Press team on T Australia, relying on their editorial and creative strengths to deliver T’s exclusive stories and unique perspective to the Australian audience.”

Advertising for T Australia: The New York Times Style Magazine will be sold through Publisher’s Internationale. The on-sale price will be AU$14.95 with extensive retail distribution and subscriptions also available.
