Everything you need to know about Alicia Keys’ beauty brand
By

Alicia Keys has just turned 40 and the pop star has got an extra reason to celebrate, as she’s become the latest celebrity to unveil her own beauty brand.

Ahead of the launch of Keys Soulcare, which goes on sale in the UK and Ireland from January 29, here’s what we know about the range so far…

The launch is a ‘dream come true’ for Keys
In 2016, after struggling with acne for years, Keys gave up wearing make-up, later revealing she felt self-conscious being in the spotlight.

“I struggled so much in my skin and really even being clear about my self-confidence and self-worth,” she told Glamour magazine in 2020, explaining that her own skincare journey helped inspire Keys Soulcare.

“It’s a dream come true, [as]I’ve always wanted to create something [like this]because I wanted something that would work for me when I was having difficult times; that would

Does Every Makeup Brand Need a Skin Care Line? | BoF Professional, The Business of Beauty, News & Analysis
By

When makeup label Hourglass quietly launched a moisturiser and serum seven years ago, the plan was never to make skin care a focus, said founder and chief executive Carisa Janes.

But the two items have proven to be steady sellers, despite small production runs and narrower distribution than Hourglass’ main colour line. Now, with the pandemic fuelling a skin care boom, the brand is adding more products in the category, including a cleanser and an eye cream. Janes said she wants skin care to someday make up half of her company’s business.

“We are putting as much attention and focus on skin care as we do colour cosmetics,” Janes said.

Hourglass isn’t the only cosmetics brand vying to become a skin care authority. Cover FX entered the category earlier this month, and Winky Lux is launching 10 skin care products this week. They join Morphe via its Morphe 2 label,

How Far Can the White House Boost a Fashion Brand? | BoF Professional, News & Analysis
By

On the eve of the inauguration, First Lady Jill Biden appeared at the National Mall for a coronavirus memorial in a full ensemble, complete with dress and mask, by independent designer Jonathan Cohen.

The outfit signalled a return to fashion diplomacy: Biden was joined by Kamala Harris in a coat by designer Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss, and the following day both Harris and Michelle Obama wore Sergio Hudson.

The selections marked a return to form for an industry that largely avoided any contact with the White House over the past four years: fashion coverage of the previous administration was rarely positive, epitomised by Melania Trump donning a coat with the words “I really don’t care, do u?” on the back.

With a new administration, the halo effect in both sales and press that accompanied the designers of the Obama administration may follow a new set of designers in the

Fashion retailer FJB bets on skin care brand Dr. Barbara Sturm in effort to diversify business
By

Founded in 1959, FJB is a Singapore-listed company that represents over 20 brands such as GUESS, Marc Jacobs and Rebecca Minkoff. The company operates 169 brick-and-mortar stores in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Group COO Douglas Benjamin told CosmeticDesign-Asia​ that the firm has been considering diversifying its business and entering the beauty space for a few years now.

With COVID-19’s impact on the fashion industry, 2020 seemed as good a time as any to make the leap.

“Skin care has been touted as a big growth area in consumerism and with COVID-19, it has taken a big leap forward in terms of demand. During the lockdown [in Singapore], we got in touch with Dr, Sturm to take on the brand and introduce it into Singapore through e-commerce,”​ said Benjamin.

Dr. Barbara Sturm, founder of the eponymous brand, is an aesthetics doctor based in Germany most well-known for developing a

The Affordable Brand Our Editors Get All Their Basics From
By

If you asked us which high-street store we’d be lost without, you probably wouldn’t think we’d say Uniqlo. Yes, we love a bit of Topshop, Zara and H&M for topping up on our trends, but recently we realised that everyone on the Who What Wear UK team’s wardrobes is built around basics from this affordable brand.

When we chatted about it, everyone had a different item they swore by Uniqlo for, from the Extra-Fine Merino Crew-Neck Sweater that’s a personal favourite (I own no fewer than four colourways) to the best fleeces in the business (yes, fleece is back, people). We almost didn’t want to give this one away for fear of our favourites constantly selling out, but we’re nice like that.

The secret to shopping Uniqlo like a fashion editor seems to be to size up to get that expensive-looking slouch (especially in knits); also, don’t be afraid
