It’s been a busy summer. Between all the reopenings and coming back to what feels like more-normal life, keeping up with it all is proving challenging. That’s why we’re here, to bring you all the fashion and beauty news you might have missed. Between new products, brand expansions, and more, here’s your chance to get caught up and stay in the know!
Introducing Giorgio Armani My Way Intense
Last year we fell hard for Giorgio Armani’s My Way, but this year we’re falling even harder for its latest iteration: My Way Intense. The fragrance, coming mid-August, is a rich and succulent interpretation of the floral original. To help keep it sustainable, the brand has formulated the fragrance in a refillable bottle that works to reduce carbon emissions. It may seem like a small act, but these days, everything counts!
Knix x Ashley Graham
Inclusivity is something to celebrate! We couldn’t help doing a jump for joy when we heard the news that Canadian lingerie brand Knix had partnered with supermodel Ashley Graham for their new activewear line. The collection is designed to be stylish (duh!) but also incredibly functional as it’s moisture-wicking, comfortable, supportive, and available in extended sizing so everyone can feel and look great while getting in a good sweat!
Soia & Kyo Goes Fur-Free
It seems that more brands are hopping on the fur-free trend and we’re here for it. These days, faux is where its at. We were thrilled to learn that Canadian brand Soia & Kyo had joined the fur-free party as well. The news that the brand would move away from fur came as they unveiled their new Fall/Winter 2021 line this month. The brand now recognizes the importance of replacing fur entirely and permanently from their e-commerce offering and all retail stores moving forward.

Well, not anymore because clean beauty brand Biossance has just launched an SPF that not only protects against the sun’s rays but it’s hydrating, too. Thanks to the addition of squalane, the brand’s hero ingredient, this SPF keeps the skin moisturized while the broad-spectrum formula will get you through the summer season.
