PAUSE Advent: 2nd Day Of Christmas

Jewellery does not really get manlier than that.










Provocative advertising is most often than not the best way to attract attention to a product. Australian brand I Love Ugly placed their bets on a series of very racy shots to promote their new range of men’s jewellery and oh how right they were! The campaign featuring a man’s hand cradling a completely naked woman in a variety of suggestive poses. And of course, the mentioned hand is covered with rough looking and yet so stylish rings. Cast from oxidised silver, each piece unique thanks to a particular distressing process. And to make it even more special, the rings are hand-finished with engraved quotations. The prices range from $255 to $335 for the silver range. There is a also a new 18K gold ring which will be going down for $2,110. So do not be afraid if men’s jewellery and make sure you get your hands on this unique collection (no pun intended).

Available from the I Love Ugly website tomorrow, and from the day after the brand’s flagships stores in Los Angeles, Sydney, Melbourn and New Zealand the day after.

Because clothes is not all that makes the Balmain muse.


Just as we bearly managed to recover after the H&M x Balmain craze, the Olivier Rousteing and the Swedish high street giant are doing it again. This time, the focus is more precise and on only one primary sensory experience: the smell.

On December 3rd, the H&M and Balmain fragrance is going to hit the shelves of selected H&M stores across the world. The prefume promises to be extracly how you would imagine the luxury French brand would. Top notes of tonka bean and white jasmine petals, a heart of white woods and cedar and a finish of musk and sandalwood makes for a very heated yet sophisticated combination.

If you are ready for the whole queue deal again, save the day on Thursday. And by day, we mean the whole 24 hours, because that is how H&M and Balmain waiting gig seem to roll.
