The Skinny 2.0   – Iden Denim

Fashion, Journal, Lifestyle

My journey to build a sustainable wardrobe led me to find the perfect pair of denim jeans.

Denim is bad business as far as Mother Nature is concerned, with up to 2,000 gallons of water used to make a single pair. Not to mention the huge amounts of pesticides from cotton production and the toxins associated with the synthetic dyeing process.

Iden Denim has solved this problem, offering a sustainable solution.  The cool cult quintessentially British label, Iden Denim has recently launched in Fenwick.  This premium brand focuses on sourcing BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) fabric from mills located near the factories to keep the carbon footprint down, with over half the current range compromising organic and recycled materials. Wastewater from the washing and dyeing process is cleaned before it’s returned to the local system, while buttons and rivets have been given the Bluesign seal of approval.

The JOSEPHINE SKINNY is a timeless shape and can be paired with a floral-print wrap crepe midi dress as a top.  The look perfectly encapsulates the brand’s laid-back femininity at the office.

The flattering floral printed wrap dress is perfect for after work evening parties or dinners.

Beauty Lunch Breaks

Best for instant facial glow  

It’s Wednesday and I just landed in London for business. Often I feel that I am re-living the American film,  Up In The Air a frequent flyer and secretly always counting my air miles.

The FG studio

With a few hours to spare before my catch-up meeting with one of my favourite client, I thought a little “glow” this afternoon would add nicely to my polished appearance.

With FaceGym flag ship studio on Kings Road, I jumped in an uber and booked their new The Party Face (55 mins) online in 3 easy steps.  The treatment promises to tighten and brighten with 24karat gold and silver workout. I chose the gold. The benefit? Gold boosts collagen for the ultimate pre-party radiance. Although I wasn’t planning to attend a party afterwards, I definitely needed an ultimate pre-party radiance to boost this afternoon.

The Party Face (55 mins) included a combination of FaceGym’s unique electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) device that emits mild, yet forceful electrical waves to stimulate muscles and restore skin’s elasticity with the famous 24 karat gold mask from Mimi Luzon for an immediate lift and radiance.

My skin looked flushed, dewy and healthy and my cheekbones more prominent.  It’s ideal way of de-puff and brighten your skin after even a short flight from Zurich.

FaceGym founder, Inge Theron, “Our new FaceGym revolutionises the beauty scene. Pairing natural products and techniques with state of the art technology, we are able to offer customers non-invasive treatments that help sculpt, lift and tone.”

FaceGym has always been my go-to brand when in London as it offers a healthier alternative in maintaining innovative techniques to stretch and strengthen our 40-odd facial muscles.  A personal trainer (basically a masseuse for your face) uses various knuckling movements and whipping strokes to stimulate blood circulation and collagen production to give the illusion of having had a face lift without the needles.

The Face Gym is available at Selfridges and also at its flagship on the King’s Road.
