This week, our Influencer Focus is dedicated to Sandra Diola. If there's anything new to know about beauty, the South Floridian based model features it on her Instagram account. Whether it's a lip tint, enriching hair products or highlighters, you can find them on @sandradrifter. Her understated wardrobe, an enviable mix of playful designers like Ganni from YOOX, pieces from Urban Outfitters and streamlined items by COS, is another reason why we scroll through her feed religiously. We caught up with the busy influencer and aspiring graphic designer to talk style, wellness essentials and designing her boyfriend's album cover. 


What compelled you to start your own Instagram account? 

I’m from the Philippines, so after moving to Florida, I started my Instagram account because I wanted to be more connected and present. Which is funny, actually, because we end up not being as present with social media. 

What do you enjoy most about the creative process? 

I enjoy changes in direction and having to invent something new. There’s this feeling of happiness in the middle of a shoot when I know I'm in the zone creatively. It makes me feel even more excited to see the outcome. 

What are the challenges and also the benefits of being an influencer? 

I guess the challenge would probably be staying true to myself. This means working with brands that align with my ethos, the ones I truly love and want to promote, especially the smaller ones. I guess the benefits would be allowing these smaller brands to be more visible and having the platform to talk about real things that matter to me. Issues that transcend the beautifully styled imagery. 

What are your non-negotiables regarding your wellness routine? 

MOISTURISING. That’s non-negotiable. 

How would you describe your personal style? Do you have any favourite brands? 

My style is very easy going. I enjoy wearing colourful outfits that convey elements of nostalgia, which why I love shopping vintage. Some of my favourite designers are Cos, Orseund Iris, and I recently have fallen in love with Ganni from YOOX. I also adore Albisia for jewellery. It's a small brand from my hometown that makes styles by hand. 

Which are your staples when it comes to dressing up in the morning? 

I'm used to being out all day studying or running to castings and meetings, so I always bring a sweater or cardigan for all-day, for maximum cosiness. Plus, it adds that hygge element to my outfit. 

You're always travelling. Which one of your recent destinations was the most memorable to you and why? 

I think my most memorable destination will forever be Cuba. The city's architecture, the colours and sceneries were reminiscent of another era. I'll never forget it. 
What are you working on at the moment? What are your plans this year? 

Apart from growing my work on my platform and modelling, I'm doing graphic design. I’m aiming to make album covers for my boyfriend's music project ‘Pleasure Wars’, finish my book and indulge in more self-care when I find the time.

This week, our Influencer Focus is dedicated to influencer Sandra Diola. If there's anything new to know about beauty, the South Floridian model will have featured it on her Instagram account.

Another performance, another winning crop top look from our favourite rising singing sensation Dua Lipa. The 5-time 2018 Brit Award nominee scored a coveted spot on American comedy TV show Saturday Night Live to introduce the US to her sassy and soulful brand of pop. And she didn’t disappoint, sashaying her way through cool-girl breakup anthem 'New Rules' from her debut eponymous album, which charted the highest of any new female artist in the UK last year. She also made us, and almost everyone watching we'd imagine, really yearn for a floral crop top like hers, long-sleeved and only just long enough to cover a bra. So much so that Vogue.com took notice. 


So how did she make this summer-perfect piece weather and prime-time TV worthy? By adding on-trend, high waisted black vinyl trousers and platform heels to teach a new lesson in monochrome dressing. She was coolly glamorous and the smattering of gold necklaces around her neck (and rings on her fingers) gave the ensemble even more of an edge. Of course, Refinery 29 had already marked Lipa out as a fashion star to watch and this unexpected enviable look certainly cemented that reputation. We weren’t sure where she could go, crop top wise, following the actual bras and bikini tops she’s sported in the past, but the ultra-chic answer is here for all to see.  

It’s easy to get Lipa’s look even if you don’t have her killer abs. Tie front crop tops have been a bubbling micro trend since last summer and you'll wear one more and more as is starts to get warmer. Ditto vinyl trousers and we probably wouldn’t have put them together before seeing Lipa totally nail the combination. Platforms are a given to add height and keep this flirty look in everyone’s eye line; and you can add your own jewellery to personalise it. What a great date night outfit idea! 

Watch Lipa's performance in the gallery above then shop our edit below to recreate this of-the-moment look.

New York Fashion Week runs from today until next Wednesday, February 14th following the Men's collections February 5th- 8th. However, this New York Fashion Week is different than the rest. It's following on a wave of changes that was initiated last season when Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra and Thom Browne moved their presentations to Paris. Tome's Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo also joined the pack of designers leaving New York for Paris. While the controversial collaboration of Rihanna's Fenty x Puma received many accolades and the quintessential American spirit brand of Ralph Lauren hosted his show in his Bedford garage. This season more designers are striking on their own accord while two are coming out of town. 


THE OUT-OF-TOWNERS 

Tomas Maier is celebrating the opening of his Madison Avenue store and is visiting his Bottega Venetta show from Milan to New York for one season. Maier's move makes sense since the fresh air being infused into the collection abides by the New York edgy and youthful sensibility. Esteban Cortazar - the boy wonder from Paris, formerly creative director of Emanuel Ungaro, is moving his show from Paris to New York. 

THE DEPARTURES 

Ever since Alexander Wang announced that he's moving #WangFest to a June/December schedule there are more designers evading the conventional Fashion Calendar. Wand staged several street parties in September and will present his final show on the official schedule this Saturday before moving with his plans. Marchesa's Georgina Chapman after filing for divorce from Harvey Weinstein and Keren Craig cancelled their runway show in favour of a more low-key event. Delpozo and Victoria Beckham are switching New York for London, Tome traded New York for Paris while there will be no Fenty x Puma show. Many others Public School and Baja East switched to straight-to-consumer, Burberry and Mansur Gavriel wanted to a see-now-buy-now model while Rebecca Minkoff and Lela Rose opted for Instagram shows instead of IRL ones.

FASHION WEEK STAPLES 

But still, it's New York fashion week Marc Jacobs whose latest collection was featured on the cover of American Vogue is closing the show. While Raf Simons is presenting both his third collection for Calvin Kein and also showcasing his own menswear brand. Tom Ford is showing two separate collections Women's and Men's. We're anticipating Coach, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and of course Jeremy Scott! We're also expecting a breath of fresh air from newcomers (to the NYFW runway at least) Eckhaus Latta, the powerful subversive duo, and the American - Australian Matthew Adams Dolan, a denim aficionado and Rihanna favourite. 

THE FROW 

As with designers, there has been a thinning of big celebrity sightings too. This time last year Katie Holmes, Jennifer Hudson and Lucy Liu sat at Zac Posen alone, for example, and by September, the significant celeb snaps were confined to those of a pregnant Jessica Alba and Jessica Seinfeld. And all for a good reason. According to The New York Times, in the practice of pay-per-pose, an A-lister like Angelina Jolie could command close to $1 million per show. As expected Tom Ford kicked off NYFW AW18 with a guest list that included Ciara and husband Russell Wilson, Pusha T and Halsey. Jessica Alba is a Tory Burch veteran so she’ll probably be there, ditto for Zoe Kravitz at close friend Alexander Wang’s show. Rashida Jones is a fan of  Rachel Comey, actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been a COACH regular in the past and may even show up to the Victoria Beckham show (she’s currently dating Brooklyn Beckham). Olivia Culpo and her New England Patriots player boyfriend Danny Amendola are scheduled to make an appearance, according to E! Online. And from the music scene: Solange Knowles Tinashe and Teyana Taylor may all show up. As far as street style trendsetters are concerned: Yasmin Sewell, (heavily pregnant) Leandra Medine, Lisa Aiken and Linda Tol are all safe bet sightings and women to follow on Instagram if you’re not already. 

Stay glued to Shopcade for more #FashionWeek updates and speaking of sticking to that New York aesthetic, shop our favourite NYFW designers via our expert edit below!

New York Fashion Week starts today and will run until next Wednesday 14th February (aka Valentine’s Day) following the Men's collections held between the 5th and 8th of February. However, there are a host of changes, initiated last season when Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra and Thom Browne moved their presentations to Paris. Tome's Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo crossed over to the French capital as well, and even more, designers are shaking up the fashion system. 


THE OUT-OF-TOWNERS 

Tomas Maier is celebrating the opening of his Madison Avenue store and is visiting his Bottega Venetta show from Milan to New York for one season. Maier's move makes sense since the fresh air being infused into the collection abides by the city’s urban edge and youthful sensibility. Esteban Cortazar, the boy wonder from Paris and formerly creative director of Emanuel Ungaro, is moving his show from Paris to New York. 

THE DEPARTURES 

Ever since Alexander Wang announced that he's moving #WangFest to a June/December schedule, more designers have followed suit and evaded the conventional Fashion Calendar. Wand staged several street parties in September and will present his final show on the official schedule this Saturday before executing his plans. After filing for divorce from disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and her co-founder Keren Craig cancelled their runway show in favour of a more low-key event. Delpozo and Victoria Beckham are switching New York for London ( the former this season, the latter next), and there will be no Fenty x Puma show (making a Rihanna a little less likely). Others like Public School and Baja East have switched to a straight-to-consumer format, Burberry and Mansur Gavriel’s collections will be see-now-buy-now, while Rebecca Minkoff and Lela Rose have opted for Instagram shows instead of IRL ones. 

FASHION WEEK MAINSTAYS 

But one of NYFW’s biggest names Marc Jacobs, whose latest collection was featured on the cover of American Vogue, is closing the week as usual. Raf Simons is presenting both his third collection for Calvin Klein and his own menswear brand; while Tom Ford is eschewing co-ed shows by showing his new menswear and womenswear separately a few days apart. We're looking forward to seeing what Coach, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and of course Jeremy Scott have come up with! And keeping a close eye on Monse, newcomers (to the NYFW runway at least) Eckhaus Latta, the powerful subversive duo, and Rihanna’s favourite denim aficionado Matthew Adams Dolan. 

THE FROW

Hands up if you only watch the Super Bowl for the American national anthem and the halftime show? Us too, and also for an annual real life sighting of the supermodel Gisele as she supports her husband, the record-breaking star New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady with their family. Although this year the 5 time world champions didn’t retain their trophy in Super Bowl LII as the so-called ‘underdogs’ Philadelphia Eagles beat them 41-33, with Brandon Graham's incredible strip-sack knocking the ball out of Brady’s hands. That’s a very rough summary of the actual American football played because we were most excited to see Justin Timberlake in his comeback gig, to crown the release of his new album 'Man of the Woods.' P!nk had wowed belting out ’The Star-Spangled Banner’ with the flu earlier on.  


Timberlake had a tough task following Lady Gaga’s epic performance last year and Beyonce’s stunning politically-charged rendition of ‘Formation’ the year before, and the talented singer-dancer didn’t quite reach the same heights. His mandate seemed to be family friendly rather than forward-thinking and so Timberlake dutifully delivered: slickly dancing his way through a medley of his greatest hits including ‘Rock your Body’ (which he did at his 2003 Super Bowl show with Janet Jackson that lead to #nipplegate), ‘Señorita’, ‘My Love’, ‘Sexy Back’, 'Cry me a River', ‘Suit and Tie’, ‘End of Time’ at a piano and ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ to close. 

There were no NSYNC, Janet Jackson or ‘Filthy’ robot appearances but plenty of backing dancers, a live brass band and a few sound issues; and Timberlake did pay tribute to the late Prince, as the game was being staged in his hometown Minnesota, by covering ‘I Would Die 4 U’. The late legendary artist was projected next to him as a video rather than a ‘demonic’ hologram and his fans weren’t happy as Prince reportedly didn’t like Timberlake. Unlike longterm Timberlake’s fans from his NSYNC and ‘Justified' days who voiced their approval on social media, but the whole thing did little to inspire a new generation, as the young man who got a selfie with Timberlake hinted by his actions.

What Timberlake wore also sparked plenty of debate and memes. Fresh out of Stella McCartney’s AW18 menswear collection (so not in stores yet) and in line with his new ‘country with R’n’b roots’ sound, he sported a deer scene shirt with a cameo splatter print and Prince of Wales check suit, a red bandana around his neck, a fringed leather jacket and chunky white Nike sneakers which looked like custom Jordans. GQ has full details/sketches and it was the most progressive thing about the performance- a fresh way to pull off clashing prints for men.

So if you want to, or you’d like your boyfriend to dress like Timberlake, admire his instagram shots in the gallery above, watch the halftime show here and then shop our edit of similar styles below.

Attendees at the Grammys last night took recent red carpet #TimesUp and #Metoo protests to another level by adding a symbolic white rose to their outfits. The move was the brainchild of Meg Harkins, senior vice president of marketing at Roc Nation and Karen Rait, head of rhythm promotions at Interscope/ Geffen/ A&M Records; with the support of other well-known women in the music industry because the flower historically stands for ‘hope, peace, sympathy and resistance.’ It’s worth remembering that the suffragettes adopted the ‘pure’ colour 100 years ago when they fought for and succeeded in winning women the vote. 


Whether the white rose was actually carried, pinned/embroidered to a lapel, or even temporarily tattooed onto a décolletage, Lady Gaga, Cardi B et al showed their support and solidarity in bold and brave ways. Many stars wore black on the red carpet anyway, like the Golden Globes dress code, which created a gorgeous monochrome style statement as well. And while Beyonce and others didn’t carry the rose, her daughter Blue Ivy was dressed in head to toe white and performers like Kesha, Cyndi Lauper and Camila Cabello wore the hue on stage. 

To stand sartorially with these women and support these important movements, check out how they styled their white roses in their gallery above and then shop our edit of wear-now picks below.

John Galliano's designs for the Maison Margiela couture collection were described by Suzy Menkes, Vogue's International Editor, as 'pure imagination. Indeed his polyurethane coats are not ready-to-wear pieces we will be donning for music festivals but will definitely inspire those on the high street. The glimmering garms are truly a sight to behold, fit for fashion wonderland. Image: Vogue.co.uk

As we keep our track on our New Year New You content organising and planning for a more fruitful and productive year, we couldn't leave out the amazing Japanese organizing consultant and author Marie Kondo. Her bestselling book "The ", had helped myriads of men and women to tidy up their house, environment even their personal and professional lives. Here are a few of her secrets to success: 


Lesson 1 Tackle Categories, Not Rooms 

Even though we tend to take on one room at a time Kondo's advice is to tidy by category and deal with each category separately, for example, tackle all your books at once. Begin with clothing, go through more emotional items later such as books and old photographs. 

Lesson 2 Respect Your Ownership 

One of the best ways to avoid messiness is to truly value each item. You wouldn't leave that dress on the floor if you really respect it right? 

Lesson 3 Get Over Nostalgia 

Make two categories of things that are worth saving such as your sentimental memorabilia and the ones that are kept by habit or laziness. Throw the second category away and start storing the first. 

Lesson 4 Purge is Good 

One of her best rules is to keep only what gives you joy and it's much easier than you think. Start by putting on some music that makes you equally joyful. 

Lesson 5 Go for the fold not the hang 

Once the purge session is over it's time for storing. Rather than folding Kondo thinks a lot of our clothing would be "happier" folded in a dresser.

Lesson 6 The Fold 

Her vertical folding technique makes everything easy to spot and hard to mess up. FOlded this way clothing looks like fabric origami ready to line your drawers in neat rows. 

Ready to try the Marie Kondo's way? Shop your organising essentials below and get to work

Names like Alexander Wang, Karlie Kloss and Pharrell Williams featured in the campaign video as well as athletes like Lionel Messi and David Beckham. Titled ‘Calling All Creators’ the campaign featured the celebs talking about what motivates them to create. It was the ‘Last Supper’ of 2017 and we loved it! It truly inspired me to create in 2018! Check out the campaign video on Youtube to be inspired for 2018. #adidas #campaign #video #karliekloss #pharrelwilliams #alexanderwang #lionelmessi #davidbeckham #fashion #newyears #creativity
