Harry's is now available in The Netherlands

Men Launched in the Netherlands via Harrys.com March 2nd.  With the aim to disrupt the category, as the brand that does shaving differently.  Launching with a range of shaving products, face, and accessories. Will be available online to buy over www.harrys.com, with prices starting from 6.00€ RRP      Harry’s was founded to deliver an exceptional grooming experience at a fair price, and they’re expanding to Europe to further that mission and reach as many guys as possible. They always had a vision of bringing Harry’s to guys across the world.     The idea was born out of a bad experience that Andy (Katz-Mayfield, co-founder of Harry’s) had when he was in a store trying to buy razors. After waiting for over 10 minutes for someone to unlock the security case, and spending over $20, it was at that moment he called Jeff (Raider, co-founder) with the idea to start a new shaving brand!  Recognised an opportunity to build a brand that was very different from the leading players: a brand that’s more relatable, more thoughtful, and more real than the outdated and disconnected men’s brands on the market. A brand that would appeal to every man. So they did just that - gathering insights, creating a brand, designing a product, sourcing supply and launched online on DTC in 2013, with a clean and simple web experience that I and many others looked at admiringly back then.       Their success in the US and the speed they’ve managed to penetrate the UK market in particular (across DTC and now retail) has given them confidence that guys in Europe will benefit from access to their products. That’s why they’re launching Harry’s online in NL (as well as in Germany, France and Belgium, too). The Netherlands (and the other EU markets they're launching in) have a large wet shave market and a mature shave category which offers them a great opportunity to continue their strategy of disruption. Through their research, they have learned that the DTC model is adopted quickly.     Visit their Dutch website here: https://www.harrys.com/nl/nl Launched in the Netherlands via Harrys.com March 2nd.  With the aim to disrupt the category, as the brand that does shaving differently.  Launching with a range of shaving products, face, and accessories. Will be available online to buy over www.harrys.com, with prices starting from 6.00€ RRP      Harry’s was founded to deliver an exceptional grooming experience at a fair price, and they’re expanding to Europe to further that mission and reach as many guys as possible.

SADIE SINK  IS THE FACE OF GIVENCHY BEAUTY "LE ROUGE DEEP VELVET"

SADIE SINK IS THE FACE OF GIVENCHY BEAUTY "LE ROUGE DEEP VELVET"

Beauty She’s a young woman of her time. A unique, assertive, astounding actress. A rising star of cinema, whose beauty is far from classic. In short, she is the embodiment of the new generation of Givenchy women... On the occasion of a striking digital campaign, Sadie Sink celebrates the House’s boldest lipstick: Le Rouge Deep Velvet.     She began her career on Broadway as the title role in the revival of Annie in 2013. She then went on to appear opposite Helen Mirren in the Tony-nominated The Audience, directed by Stephen Daldry in 2017. Sadie joined the cast of the critically acclaimed Net ix hit series Stranger Things, where she stars as “Max,” a girl who moves to Hawkins with a complicated history and a suspicious streak, alongside the Emmy-nominated cast. She was also seen in the Lionsgate lm The Glass Castle, based on the Jeannette Walls bestselling novel. Sadie portrayed a young Lori alongside Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson. She was most recently seen in the lm Eli, a horror lm from Net ix, and next be seen in Net ix’s Fear Street 2, as well as in the fourth, eagerly awaited, season of Stranger Things.     Le Rouge Deep Velvet, a concentrate of edgy style, provides intense, amazingly matte colour from the very rst stroke. Its rich, velvety texture glides on lips, covering them in a powdery veil without adding texture. Comfortable and long-lasting, it delivers a 6 hour-long deep moisturising effect and an intense makeup result lasting up to 12 hours.     In just one step, Le Rouge Deep Velvet gives your appearance a touch of utter sophistication. A distinctive Couture signature reinterpreted by Sadie Sink through three iconic looks.     Sophisticated makeup, for special occasions and memorable nights out. The look’s star? Le Rouge Deep Velvet No.37 Rouge Grainé, a rich and passionate red, which is the most iconic shade in the range. To enhance the colour of her lips, Sadie Sink’s complexion has been perfected, sculpted by creating points of light on the prominent parts of her face. And the Hollywood facet has been emphasized with some eyeliner at the base of her upper eyelashes, highlighted by a touch of black mascara.     A nude, transparent uni ed complexion, a mascara-free look, hair let down... Le Rouge Deep Velvet adds a twist to a completely natural look. Especially since because Sadie Sink’s lips are made up with one of the most impactful shades of the colour chart: shade No.36 L’Interdit, a particularly edgy deep red.     “I can be calm. I can be funny. And I can also be serious... Le Rouge Deep Velvet gives me boldness and con dence. It boosts my personality.” Sadie Sink She’s a young woman of her time.

Dior Homme presents the new Eau de Toilette "I’m your man"

Men A new Dior Homme is born. A new, intensely woody Eau de Toilette by François Demachy. Masculine sensuality is reinvented with Robert Pattinson in a mesmerizing new film.   A perfume – And a man to go with it. Spellbinding, stylish and sophisticated.     STOP: What does it even mean to be a man today? Everything is changing, everything is shifting. Dior Homme asks this question with strength and determination precisely because he is a “Dior man.” His answer is clear, straightforward, and sensual: “I’M YOUR MAN” Like Leonard Cohen, he proclaims his feelings and accepts his emotions.     A direct, clear-cut perfume. Yet one that is also tender and facetted. In his image. The new Dior Homme is a declaration of reinvented sensuality; A strong, extremely woody sensation with a caress of spices. A confident scent, very present, yet decidedly open.     If you want another kind of love... A new, masculine sensuality that redefines itself with an overdose of wood that is both rough and smooth. Like a block of intensity, albeit one that claims a tenacious and luminous freshness.     “This new Dior Homme has an obviously virile signature. Which doesn’t prevent it from developing tender, sensual aspects. In the end, it came down to creating a portrait of modern man.” François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator       Here I stand The new Dior Homme is crafted from a block of frank, sensual wood.It is an iconic, reassuring Wood that is open and welcoming. It says right off, “I am a man,” but hides the interlacing wood facets that sculpt it. It unsettles with its somewhat burnt, leathery, even animal charm.Then soothes you with its light and smooth, almost liquid accents.This versatile scent is open to nuances and differences. A sensual soul torn by opposing forces.It is physical, yet fresh. It clothes, surrounds and envelops you-- weightlessly.Leaving a tenacious trace and a tender imprint. The strength and caress are deliberate. A rough Wood, sculpted by the hand of Dior.

In conversation with Luna Blaise

Fashion We had a delight speaking with the star of hit series "Manifest" Luna Blaise.       You are currently shooting the 3rd season of “Manifest”, can you tell us more about the new season and your role on the show?   Yes, I am currently in NY shooting Manifest S.3.  I play Olive Stone and this season you can expect to meet more passengers from flight 828 along with unexpected twists and turns. Just like me Olive is also coming of age and learning and growing as a young woman. Shooting the show this season during the pandemic has been challenging at times.  Our cast and crew have had to adapt to a new way of filming. Our writers have really worked hard to write episodes that insure our safety when filming and also continue to tell the exciting story of flight 828 and the Stone Family. I really think fans will love season three.         Name some of the recent highlights, like moving to New York City.   I guess my biggest highlight has been moving away from LA without my mom and on my own for the first time living alone as an adult. I am finally adulting and navigating through life as a young woman. It’s exciting, challenging and such a fun journey to be on. I miss my family but I am so inspired to be on this next chapter of my life.        Tell us something your are passionate about and is not on your resume.   I am super passionate about traveling the world. My father is from Scotland and his entire family is there. I have this entire side of my family tree that I have never been able to visit or explore and they all live in Europe. I have plans to travel extensively once it’s safe to travel again.      What is the biggest outtake of 2020 for you, and what was the biggest lesson of the previous year for you?   As a young person that was born and raised in LA I have to admit I really never witnessed social injustice first hand. That all changed when BLM movement gained global media attention. 2020 was a true awakening for me. I educated myself and realized that I had to spread awareness for equality by using my platform and advocating for those who continue to be treated unfairly by systemic racism and bigotry. I attended dozens of protests and continue to learn and educate myself everyday. The biggest lesson I learned in 2020 was that we as people have the power to make a real difference when we work together as one for the greater good for all.      Inclusivity is a key value of our magazine, how do you advocate this shared value in your everyday life?   Thanks to my very liberal and inclusive parents I was raised in a home where love has no labels. I was taught to always be kind, respectful and inclusive to everyone. This mindset is the only option I know. To love, respect others and be kind is the only way I live my life.      Can you remember the moment you first discovered your interest for acting?   For me there has never been a memory where I can’t remember wishing I was I inside the TV or on the big movie screen. When I was very little and we went to the movie theaters,  I would run down to the front of the movie screen as soon as the credits would start to roll and dance in front because I thought that meant I was in the movie too. I think I did that from the age of three to about the age of ten. At home I would always watch the directors commentary, making of the films and behind the scenes. I would also watch movies I loved over and over and over reciting the script as it went along. I have always wanted to act. I just love the craft.      How did your acting career start?   My first real theatrical movie I appeared in was called “Memoria” directed my Nina Ljeti and executive produced by James Franco. I was eleven. I have been working in film and tv ever since.      Who is the voice that has inspired you the most in your personal life?   My parents have inspired me the most in my personal life and also my career. My dad is a filmmaker and writer and my mom is a talent manager and producer. Our family business is in entertainment. From an early age they instilled a strong work ethic in me to work hard, be respectful, keep my head in the game, stay focused and believe in myself. Through their love, support and constant encouragement I am a confident independent thinker that works hard and has fun doing what I love as a career.      Do you believe that your acting can have a positive impact?   I absolutely believe this 100%. My mom has always told me that success has zero meaning if you don’t share it by paying it forward to help others and make a difference.      What is your own definition of beauty?   For me being confident, authentic and true to yourself is the ultimate definition of beauty.      How do you get ready for a red carpet evening?   To set the mood I always have a good vibes playlist ready.    TEAM CREDITS: Photographer: rayscorruptedmind Stylist: Donte McGuine Creative Producer: Sahtia Rivers at the Jeffries editor: Timotej Letonja hair and make-up: Christina Turino We had a delight speaking with the star of hit series "Manifest" Luna Blaise.       You are currently shooting the 3rd season of “Manifest”, can you tell us more about the new season and your role on the show?   Yes, I am currently in NY shooting Manifest S.3.  I play Olive Stone and this season you can expect to meet more passengers from flight 828 along with unexpected twists and turns.

I miss my family but I am so inspired to be on this next chapter of my life.        Tell us something your are passionate about and is not on your resume.   I am super passionate about traveling the world. My father is from Scotland and his entire family is there. I have this entire side of my family tree that I have never been able to visit or explore and they all live in Europe. I have plans to travel extensively once it’s safe to travel again.      What is the biggest outtake of 2020 for you, and what was the biggest lesson of the previous year for you?   As a young person that was born and raised in LA I have to admit I really never witnessed social injustice first hand. That all changed when BLM movement gained global media attention. 2020 was a true awakening for me. I educated myself and realized that I had to spread awareness for equality by using my platform and advocating for those who continue to be treated unfairly by systemic racism and bigotry. I attended dozens of protests and continue to learn and educate myself everyday. The biggest lesson I learned in 2020 was that we as people have the power to make a real difference when we work together as one for the greater good for all.      Inclusivity is a key value of our magazine, how do you advocate this shared value in your everyday life?   Thanks to my very liberal and inclusive parents I was raised in a home where love has no labels. I was taught to always be kind, respectful and inclusive to everyone. This mindset is the only option I know. To love, respect others and be kind is the only way I live my life.      Can you remember the moment you first discovered your interest for acting?   For me there has never been a memory where I can’t remember wishing I was I inside the TV or on the big movie screen. When I was very little and we went to the movie theaters,  I would run down to the front of the movie screen as soon as the credits would start to roll and dance in front because I thought that meant I was in the movie too. I think I did that from the age of three to about the age of ten. At home I would always watch the directors commentary, making of the films and behind the scenes. I would also watch movies I loved over and over and over reciting the script as it went along. I have always wanted to act. I just love the craft.      How did your acting career start?   My first real theatrical movie I appeared in was called “Memoria” directed my Nina Ljeti and executive produced by James Franco. I was eleven. I have been working in film and tv ever since.      Who is the voice that has inspired you the most in your personal life?   My parents have inspired me the most in my personal life and also my career. My dad is a filmmaker and writer and my mom is a talent manager and producer. Our family business is in entertainment. From an early age they instilled a strong work ethic in me to work hard, be respectful, keep my head in the game, stay focused and believe in myself. Through their love, support and constant encouragement I am a confident independent thinker that works hard and has fun doing what I love as a career.      Do you believe that your acting can have a positive impact?   I absolutely believe this 100%. My mom has always told me that success has zero meaning if you don’t share it by paying it forward to help others and make a difference.      What is your own definition of beauty?   For me being confident, authentic and true to yourself is the ultimate definition of beauty.      How do you get ready for a red carpet evening?   To set the mood I always have a good vibes playlist ready.    TEAM CREDITS: Photographer: rayscorruptedmind Stylist: Donte McGuine Creative Producer: Sahtia Rivers at the Jeffries editor: Timotej Letonja hair and make-up: Christina Turino

SPLENDIDA BVLGARI BRINGS TO LIFE A NEW EMOTION WITH ITS LATEST EAU DE PARFUM

Beauty In 2020, SPLENDIDA BVLGARI takes us on a journey into an unrivalled world of temptation, leading us to a place that is seductive and carnal, with a subtly provocative dimension. Arousing your senses and enveloping you in the intensely stimulating pleasure of its scent, this alluring and irresistible blend expresses bold yet sensuous femininity. It brings to life new emotions thanks to the sensual and deeply addictive Patchouli, unveiling its luminous new Eau de Parfum: PATCHOULI TENTATION.     Infusing a new creative boost with unrestrained inspirations, BVLGARI has chosen to focus on an emblematic and enticing ingredient in women’s perfumery with the notion of temptation intricately woven into its history:Patchouli, exclusively magni ed for BVLGARI.     A tropical plant that exudes an earthy, warm, spicy, musky scent, patchouli is one of the great temptations of the natural world. Used as a perfume and anaphrodisiac, patchouli has a long and storied history, and was rst brought westalong ancient trade routes, where its jewel-like luminosity and heady scentmade it as precious as gold. Later, it was used to scent ne silks and shawls, and,more recently, became a symbol of free-spirited rebellion in the 1970s. Patchouli is the heart of the new SPLENDIDA BVLGARI Chypre Floral fragrance signed by Sophie Labbé. Staying true to its Bvlgari heritage, she has sculpted Patchouli Tentation with the precision of a jeweler, crafting a luminous andenveloping scent that celebrates one of nature’s nest gems and expressesChypre in a modern and unexpected way.     To create the provocative new fragrance, master perfumer Sophie Labbé used a patchouli trio that unmasks the unfolding Temptation. One of the most alluring scents in the perfumer’s palette, patchouli has many distinctive facets. For the new SPLENDIDA BVLGARI Patchouli Tentation, Sophie Labbé chose three complementary elements, created in exclusivity for Bulgari, creating an olfactory narrative of temptation revealed, chiseled in different shades of patchouli.     For the top note, Sophie Labbé selected Patchouli oil Bali Flores, a rare patchouli harvested in a very small island, adding special hues from the sea to calm its earthy notes. She refers to it as “blond Patchouli,” due to its velvety elegance. Combined with rich White Peach accord, this delicate fruity bouquet offers a clear and luminous sensation as the top notes are boldly unveiled.
