MAC x Aaliyah Collection

M.A.C have had a lot of epic collaborations with musicians like Rihanna, Nikki Minaj and more but none have had us as excited as this Aaliyah collection. Finally a pallet for people who want a more natural look but is just as long lasting as the rest of your makeup. I have never been one for heavy makeup, it’s meant to enhance your beauty… not change your face. This is all about the clean face, smokey eye and subtle yet sexy lip. #Summer2018 we can’t wait!

Kim Kardashian West for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia

While Kim K has had a hot streak all around the world for the last couple of years, no where seems to be as accepting as the Arabic community. I’m not sure if it’s her Armenian heritage or the fact that despite her Californian upbringing she still has very strong ‘Arabic’ features. She covered Harper’s Bazaar Arabia who have dubbed her an “Iconic Spirit” – and if you give credit where it is due, Kimmy has done an amazing job of making herself a staple in all our lives.

Damn. Capsule Collection by Kendrick Lamar

It looks like kendrick Lamar is not staying so “humble” with his capsule collection named after his upcoming album, “Damn.” For now it looks like the line is going to be very basic, almost like concert memorabilia, which makes sense. He will be selling his merch at pop ups all around the US & Canada starting in Texas at the Black Market, last Friday. Other cities include NYC, Philly, DC, Toronto, Chicago, LA, Miami & Las Vegas, until September 2nd. Some of the items are already for sale on line and the rest of the collection will be unveiled as the pop up tour continues. So far the price points are around $30 – $60 which seems reasonable.

The Supreme x Louis Vuitton Capsule Collection

I can honestly say that I am surprised I have not seen half of this collection in Lagos already! 2 weeks is more than enough time for our fashionable Lagosians but perhaps everyone isn’t back with their summer loot yet. While the Supreme x Louis collection seems to be all the range in the mens world, it also slips in quite comfortably to a woman’s wardrobe. I would definitely rock the backpack, travel trunk & denim jacket. I’m not a huge fan of the Louis Vuitton Monogram on everything, maybe just luggage, so I’m not fond of the driving gloves and bedroom accessories. These leather slides though, are everything. If you’re a forward planner and you want to get a good gift, now’s the time to buy for birthdays, Christmas etc before it’s all gone!
