Merci for Kintsugi (金継ぎ, “golden joinery”)… Clothing That Empowers… Clothing; reinvented… www.kintsugiclothing.com

Kintsugi is a Japanese artform and philosophy that sees broken pottery repaired with gold lacquer. As a metaphor it is profound, reminding us that – as we travel through life – we all pick up scars, both physical and emotional. But this doesn’t mean they weaken us or render us ‘broken’. Instead, they enhance what we were and add to our uniqueness.

To ensure our collections are truly inclusive, we incorporate suggestions from across the disabled community, making fastenings easier and less fiddly, considering how clothes will work in a seated position, and adding functionality to make each garment work harder for its wearer.

The result is clothing everyone can wear. Clothing; reinvented.

Sure, our clothing looks great (if we do say so ourselves) but every fashionista knows it’s not just about the clothes; it’s about the person wearing them. Every individual wears a piece of clothing differently, rocking it in their own unique way. That diversity is one of the joys of fashion, and it’s why we’re passing on exclusive.

Inclusive is where it’s at.

 

Mo by Modibodi a game changer for UK men

Australian high-tech leak-proof apparel brand, Modibodi, have created a world first and launched MO by Modibodi, the first life changing range of men’s leak-proof underwear. Designed to help men manage daily incontinence and sweat comfortably, with confidence and dignity, they are further helping to reduce the need for disposable pads.

Millions of men worldwide suffer in silence from light incontinence, with 1 in 10 men experiencing bladder weakness at some point throughout their life. Prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men (1 in 9), can also cause bladder leaking, with 75% of men affected by prostate cancer suffering from bladder issues. With these kinds of shocking figures, there’s a high chance we will all know someone affected.

Founder, Kristy Chong said “Six years ago, we accelerated the fusion of fashion and technology to create Modibodi, a product that would empower women to live their lives to the fullest. We’re so excited to now offer the same life-changing options to men so they can feel supported when they might not be feeling their most confident,”

Modibodi are on a mission to breakdown taboos and develop solutions that have a true positive impact on all bodies. MO by Modibodi offer men a stylish solution to disposable pads in the form of boxers and briefs, and are priced from RRP £24.00.

Utilising Modibodi’s patented, exclusive and much-loved Modifier Technology™, the MO by Modibodi range has been designed to look and feel exactly like regular underwear, but is made using innovative fabric that are moisture wicking, absorbent, leak-proof, antibacterial, breathable and stain resistant. The range offers reliable bladder leak protection in the front pouch to absorb leaks, and moisture wicking away to a second layer, where it stays.

This underwear has been engineered to catch leaks, drips, dribbles and sweat with 100% leak-proof performance, no stains and no smell.

According to Kristy Chong “Each pair are reusable and can simply be thrown in the wash, and they will be delivered to your door in total eco-packaging, protecting the environment as well as a man’s tackle.“

Since its launch, the innovative brand has been working hard to open conversations and mention the unmentionables, helping women around the world ditch the disposables and giving over 10,000 pairs to girls in need through their give a pair scheme. MO by Modibodi is the latest innovation after Founder Kristy Chong recognised the necessity to extend high-tech leak-proof solutions further than the women’s underwear market, inviting men to join the Modibodi movement.

CHRISTMAS TREE TRENDS TO WATCH IN 2020

With lots of Brits already hitting the shops for Christmas gifts and decorations, finding a way to make this year’s festivities better than the last is always important.

To help those who are wanting to make their Christmas tree a real showstopper, the experts at Christmas Tree World, one of the UK’s top suppliers of premium artificial Christmas trees, have shared their predictions for 2020’s most popular tree trends.

From traditional and elegant festive décor to space-saving evergreen, 2020’s trends show that no matter what your personal style or what interior you’re working with, there are easy yet innovative ways to bring the spirit of Christmas to your home.

Take a look at the experts’ predictions for this year’s most stylish Christmas trees, to make 2020 your most on-trend yuletide yet:

Travelling Trees

It’s no secret that this year has marked the revival of the Great British Staycation and this surge in UK holidays is not only expected to continue into winter, but to affect tree trends too! With more couples and families spending the week leading up to Christmas and Christmas Day itself away from home, compact pop-up trees are set to be a must-have for many this year. Forget the times when only tiny and unimpressive trees could be easily transported, there are now plenty of large, high-quality pop-up trees on the market. Meaning your family can bring the festivities to any house, cottage or even caravan, without having to compromise on your tree’s appearance or impressiveness.

Let it Snow… At Home

With the likes of Winter Wonderland in London cancelled this year and question marks over winter breaks going ahead, 2020 is set to see more people investing in elaborate Christmas décor to recreate their favourite winter wonderlands closer to home. Everyone knows that a festive display is not complete without snow, which is why flocked trees that recreate the appearance of branches sprinkled with snow are proving to be a popular choice this season. Snowy trees are a fantastic way to create a picture-perfect scene and capture the magic of Christmas from the comfort of your own home, while the frosted branches bring a sense of lightness and delicacy to an interior.

Traditional Realism

Christmas is a time of beloved traditions and the familiar comforts of winter, which is why embracing the traditional Victorian-era aesthetic of Christmas is a top tree trend for 2020. When it comes to creating an interior that captures the classic elegance of Christmases past, a tree that has both grandeur and authenticity is key. Opting for an artificial tree with 3 dimensional designs will add that greater sense of realism to your décor, so it’s no surprise that high-quality and luxurious models are more in demand this year.

Monochrome Magic

If you favour the alternative and traditional interior isn’t your thing, then this year’s wildcard trend of black trees is sure to be one that you can get on board with. While black may be an unconventional palette for Christmas décor, this modern take on a Christmas tree is a chic and stylish choice right now, as 2020 has seen significant increases in sales of this shade. For keen decorators and lovers of all things Halloween, this tree trend is not only one for Christmas, but a perfect addition to your home this October 31st.

Garden Greens

The spring/summer trend of garden makeovers is expected to spill over into the winter months, as outdoor Christmas trees and décor is set to be a top trend for those with both little and large amounts of outdoor space. Bringing warmth to wherever they are placed, LED trees are a dazzling outdoor-friendly favourite this year, while more unusually shaped artificial trees are a great choice for those who embrace the avant-garde. If you are rather cautious when it comes to your interior Christmas décor, the trend for garden Christmas décor is a great way to experiment with new tree shapes and styles while creating an impressive festive display.

CHRISTMAS AT HOME WITH THE EMISSARY PROSECCO

Low in sugar, 100% vegan and created using environmentally friendly techniques,

British prosecco brand The Emissary celebrates its new DOCG Brut with 15% off all Christmas orders and complimentary delivery on a case or more.

(London, 15th October 2020) A clear favourite amongst Brits during the festive season, the UK remains the largest consumer of prosecco outside of Italy – and this year the progressive British prosecco brand, The Emissary, has launched a product made for celebrating. Unveiled in July, The Emissary Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut is a gift for discerning wine lovers and a sophisticated Christmas table addition – rich and complex with extra fine, velvety bubbles, it is made from only the finest selection of grapes grown on The Emissary’s family-run vineyard in Italy’s ‘DOCG Asolo’ region (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin).

Founded by Ed Smith to introduce a distinguished, superior quality prosecco to a new generation of UK wine drinkers, The Emissary Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut is the second product to join the premium portfolio of 100% vegan and environmentally friendly prosecco. The debut product, The Emissary Prosecco DOC Treviso Spumante Extra-Brut launched in 2018, and a rosé product, The Emissary Prosecco DOC Rosé Treviso Millesimato 2020 will be launching in January 2021.

All Emissary Prosecco is low in sugar, fresher and more versatile than most other sparkling wines, providing instant elevation to Christmas brunches, creative cocktails and well-balanced festive menus, without being overpowering. As a contemporary brand designed with social occasions in mind, The Emissary comes in a heavy black glass bottle with statement branding, making it a distinctive and timeless gift for those who like to celebrate in style.

Both of The Emissary proseccos make for a delicate and light aperitif or after dinner drink, and can be enjoyed throughout the Christmas feast as a complement to canapes, cheese courses, fish dishes and turkey.

THE EMISSARY Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut​ (new)

Pale straw-yellow prosecco with tiny, refined bubbles. The bouquet is rich with fruity and floral notes. Vibrant, zesty acidity and a subtle hint of sweetness balance gracefully on the palate. Round, gentle finish with lingering notes of fresh fruit.

A Smart Purchase: ‘Smart Screen’ for your Smart Phone… www.smartscreen.store

A London-based start-up brand propelled by lockdown creativity, ‘Smart Screen’, has launched a revolutionary, antibacterial cleaning cloth designed to ensure phones and tablets remain box-fresh.

‘Smart Screen’ is a designer cleaning cloth and pouch tailored to neatly fit into any pocket, a heavier weight than most microfibre glass cleaning cloths making it easier to handle. This premium product has been specifically manufactured with the current heightened awareness of cleanliness in mind, with a silver ion antibacterial liquid treatment applied during the weave process. The ‘Smart Screen’ boasts a durability that ensures antibacterial properties lasts for up to 15 washes.

This lifestyle accessory, though produced predominantly for phone and tablet use, can also be utilised for reading glasses or camera lens cleaning thanks to its’ versatility. Created for a mass market audience, the cloth fits into any everyday scenario – from removing screen smears before entering a meeting, eradicating dirt picked up from the bottom of a handbag or getting rid of greasy finger marks on the family-shared tablet.

‘Smart Screen’ CEO, David Sant explains: “As a serial entrepreneur and businessman I’m always looking for opportunities to spot gaps in the market and bring a concept to reality. During lockdown I have been reminiscing back to being on busy commuter trains with everyone staring at their phones then cleaning them on jeans, jacket sleeves or a handkerchief. It strikes me that now more than ever we have a requirement for ourselves and a duty to others to live in a more clean-conscious manner. I’m proud to bring such a high-end yet accessible product to market to meet a new wave in demand.”

The Smart Screen is presented in neat boxed packaging and is available for purchase in six different colours (Navy Blue, Saffron Yellow, Slate Grey, Powder Blue, Polar White and Camel Brown) retailing at £9.95 each.
