5 things we love this week: new must-see collections, an eye-opening beauty innovation, & more

28 October 2021

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

1. The latest from New Zealand’s darlings of fashion

Paris Georgia is dropping the first of its Collection 04 styles tomorrow, available via early access to its email newsletter subscribers, and launching to the general public on Monday, 1 November. 

Loved globally for its luxurious fabrics and carefully constructed garments, Paris Georgia’s Collection 04 features fresh new styles and past iconic silhouettes reimagined in delightful pastels and earthy neutral hues. 

Collection 04 has already been spotted on the likes of Lorde, who wore the new crepe suiting in a forest green hue—to Kendall Jenner in a figure-hugging criss-cross style singlet.

2. Clothes to wear in the summer light

Emerging designer Olivia Cashmore has procured yet another crowd-pleasing collection, skilfully mixing formal and leisurewear styles designed for everyday wear. From a blazer with beautiful bow-back detailing to a silky shirt and shorts combo, favourite sold-out styles from last season also make a comeback, this time in a passionate purple colourway. 

As Cashmore explains, the collection is a nod to the summer cravings we desperately wish for—the warmth of the sun, putting on a fresh white t-shirt, and evenings spent with friends. 

The collection is now available for pre-order, described by Cashmore as ‘speed dating’ because it helps the brand to get a feel for its customers. Pre-orders also prevent the overproduction of pieces that ultimately don’t sell—Cashmore is conscious not to contribute to this industry-wide issue. 


Browse the collection at oliviacashmore.com, or view the pieces via Zoom by emailing info@oliviacashmore.com

3. Work out like it’s the ’80s

Elevated Los Angeles label STAUD has collaborated with New Balance for the third time, and the result is brighter and better than ever. 

From athleisure staples like puffer vests and tracksuits, pieces are inspired by the colours and energy of iconic sporting moments and early ’80s workout videos. Vibrant colour blocking and graphics add a dynamic twist, and this mood is replicated in the finer details: contrast zips and bright stitching.  

Speaking to the collaboration, STAUD co-founder Sarah Staudinger states that “great style is an evolution, not a revolution”.

4. An eye-opening beauty innovation

The newest mascara from Clarins will uplift your day, literally. It’s essentially make-up infused with lash-care benefits, harnessing potent ingredients to lengthen, strengthen, and lift and enhance the natural curl of your lashes.

The Supra Lift & Curl mascara’s plant-powered formulation is enriched with an intense and water-resistant black mineral pigment that won’t budge an inch once applied. At the same time, bitter orange flower wax coats, enhances, and gently curls the lashes. 

The lash brush is also an eye-opening innovation, shaped to hug the curves of your lashes, and deliver just the right amount of mascara.

Discover the Supra Lift & Curl mascara at clarinsnewzealand.co.nz, Farmers, and selected department stores. 

5. The art of planning

Whether you’re ready or not, 2022 is around the corner, and we’re getting prepared with An Organised Life’s diary collection, which features a dreamy and creamy beige new colourway, as well as the enduring and classic black. 

In the modern age, not only are physical diaries a respite from our devices, but they’re also the ultimate companion for everyday living—going beyond to-do lists and appointments to goal planning, budgeting, habit tracking, and more. 

We welcome An Organised Life for bringing structure and organisation into our busy lives, as well as adding a touch of beautiful simplicity to our days—and desks.
