Introducing Polo Ralph Lauren Face Masks

Introducing the Polo Ralph Lauren face mask collection, featuring two models—the Polo cloth mask and the Polo high-filtration mask – for all the ways you work and play. While Ralph Lauren hasn’t announced a firm release date, you can sign up for updates on the brand’s webstore (you will find the link below). It’ll be worth the wait, as it’ll become the new grail for masks, there are not many designer face protections around, and shopping them will help a good cause.

Fifty percent of the net purchase price (excluding VAT) of each mask will be donated to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, powered by the UN Foundation.

My Look: Bobby

Please meet Bobby, my new It-bag. Presented first on the F/W 2020 runway, a new bag of timeless modernity and a subtle tribute to Christian Dior’s beloved pet dog. Another must-have piece created by Maria Grazia Chiuri that has found its place in my closet.

My look: iconMilitary patch jacketicon by Polo Ralph Lauren, «The Brutal Journey of the Heart» T-Shirt, and medium Bobby bag in latte, both by Dior, Jumpy ruffled leather skinny pants by Isabel Marant, Rhyton logo-print leather sneakersicon by Gucci, and Royal Oak 37mm 18-karat frosted rose gold watch by Audemars Piguet.

Fourth of July Style

Today is Independence Day (colloquial: the Fourth of July), a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. So here is my round-up of patriotic but fashionable pieces to wear to all those Fourth of July parties or of course all year around. Luckily, designers have found plenty of ways to transmute the classic stars and stripes motif into something fun, and dare I say elegant.
