5 things we love this week: navy colourways, candles & a new beauty recycling initiative

17 June 2021

Each week the Fashion Quarterly team rounds up what to read, buy, see, shop, drink and eat.

WORDS BY Hemma Vara

1. Maggie Marilyn introduces navy to Somewhere capsule

This week Maggie Marilyn released the navy colourway across the Somewhere collection for the first time in the 01 Blazer and Singlet. We were also delighted to see the coveted colour’s much-anticipated return to the quintessential 01 Leggings.

Here at FQ we’re all about wearing colours to boost our mood, and with navy conveying both confidence and unity, it’s the ultimate alternative to classic black.

4. Dermalogica's new recycling initiative

Give your empty Dermalogica products a second life via their nationwide consumer recycling partnership with social enterprise Sustainable Salons.

All you need to do is drop your empties into the nearest participating salon or courier a minimum of three to Dermalogica head office in Albany, Auckland.

Sustainable Salons will collect the empties, break them down, and separate them into categories, then recycle or repurpose the materials into something new, like recycled spectacle frames.

Notably, Sustainable Salon provides employment opportunities to differently-abled people, and the proceeds from sold recycling go to Kiwiharvest—a charity that redistributes excess food to feed communities.

5. Whānau Mārama at Commercial Bay

To celebrate Matariki, Jade Townsend concieved Whānau Mārama, an event featuring works by Māori artists at Commercial Bay.

The works remember histories, document the present, and re-imagine the future, shining a new light on what re-indigenisation and unity can be.

Whānau Mārama will transform the shopping precinct through soundscapes and art coexisting in common spaces and inside stores from tomorrow till 11 July.
