Angelina Jolie’s Oscars dress made a reappearance.

Let it be said that Angelina Jolie is no fashion snob. While making her appearance at the red carpet premiere of Eternals—joined by her children—fans would’ve have recognised a very familiar red carpet dress in their midst. Daughter Zahara Jolie-Pitt wore an Elie Saab dress that was last seen on her mother during the 2014 Oscars. With a fashion archive as extensive as Jolie’s, there’s no doubt that we’d see more of such passing down of clothes from mother to daughters in the future. And Zahara looked just as stunning the the dress as Jolie did back in the day too.

Chloé makes history as the first B Corp-certified luxury fashion brand.

With a rather extensive approval and auditing process, achieving B Corp certification is no easy feat. Brands wanting to be certified are subjected to over 300 questions concerning everything from governance to workers that impact the environment. Chloé has successfully done so and is the first luxury fashion brand to be certified as such. One of the concrete examples that the brand has implemented since 2020 include the use of lower impact materials, with the upcoming spring/summer 2022 collection consisting of 58 percent of such materials.

Beyond The Vines launches an onigiri-shaped bag.

Trust local brand Beyond The Vines to keep coming out with coveted and affordable pieces. Its latest is essentially a new size of its existing Reversible bag that now comes in a mini-size and unintentionally (according to the brand) resembles an onigiri. The Mini Reversible bag features a colour-blocked design with a detachable front pocket (that the bag can be folded and packed into) and can be flipped into a solid-colour bag with a smaller handle that hooks nicely around the crook of the arm. Genius.
