February Begins With Karl Lagerfeld Taking Us To Mars, L’Occainte Supporting Women’s Aid and We’re Getting Our Finances In Check with Emmanuel Asuquo ☄️💰💛


TGIF, FROW Fam! January felt like it dragged on forever but we’ve finally reached February, the month of love💋 and it feels like we’re properly settled into 2023 now, wouldn’t you agree? We are 3 days in and things are already getting HEATED as our favourite ALIEN SUPERSTAR, Beyoncé has announced the Renaissance World Tour is on its way and this is certainly ALL UP IN [OUR MINDS]. The celebrations don’t stop there – we’re wishing a happy birthday to Anastasia Beverley Hills – 25 years of waltzing into the world of beauty and changing it for the better (especially the brows LOL). 👀

London Fashion Week is coming up and we’re excited to see all the looks (and of course, be in on the conversations afterwards) and not forgetting the after parties too. It seems like we’re already getting sneak peeks of what’s to come … Nike X Tiffany and Co have announced their collaboration on Instagram this week and Lebron James has been seen wearing the yet-to-be-released sneakers. The FROW Team was already sold on the box😭 , fingers crossed a women’s pair is up for grabs. Also, let’s talk entertainment – Netflix is getting rid of their password sharing (not that we share our passwords anyway😳) we know many aren’t too happy about it. How do you feel? You know what to do – let us know on our Twitter 😁

And who was fortunate to see the comet C/2022 pass by on Tuesday? A rare green one that was last seen 50,000 years ago (before we were worried about the latest fashion drops and hottest collabs) If you missed your chance to wish upon a star💫, don’t shed a tear just yet – your last chance to see it will be tonight. Keep your eyes peeled. ☄️

Now without further ado… here’s this week’s FROW News.

Touching Mars With Karl Lagerfeld 🔭

We’ve all imagined what it would be like to go to the moon, right? But what about Mars? Karl Lagerfeld has announced their SS23 collection inspired by the red planet and celebrating the love of retro science fiction. Summer screams vibrancy and what better way to add some popping colour to your wardrobe than with a luxurious seasonal drop? Spotlights will be pointed your way in the embroidered lace coat in the office and after hours in your favourite bar. KL is having no problem adding class to your look with tailored outerwear in burnt sienna, or keep it casual in luxe sharp sweatsuits. This collection is out of this world. 🌍

It’s time to keep score with PUMA ⚽️

For the first time, PUMA has released their special collaboration, Keeping Score, with none other than their Creative Director, June Ambrose. Get your head in the game for this 20-piece apparel, footwear and accessory capsule with part 2 coming soon.

Work hard, play hard in this new drop.😮💨

Follow the TRAIL To adidas 🛣

While Beyoncé is hot in the news, let’s talk about her brand just for a sec. adidas and IVY PARK’s latest collection, PARK TRAIL, unleashes the spirit of the outdoors and of the possibilities of the future (like holding Renaissance tickets?).

The campaign features rapper Offset and rising star, Ice Spice to reflect the 90’s hip-hop culture in the capsule – you thought we were feeling this? 🤩

Barton Perreira Is Celebrating All Things Woman With Kelley Baker😎

We have a new series you’re going to want to keep your eyes peeled for – Barton Perreira is launching the Women’s Coalition Initiative, an ongoing collaborative chapter for the brand partnering with women-led businesses and what better way to kickstart a new beginning than with Kelley Baker Brows?

The news doesn’t stop there – for that extra celebration towards female artistry, the campaign will donate a percentage of sales from each pair to Women for Women International – an organisation supporting female survivors of war. 💚

An Unexpected Collab That We’re Not Mad About😉
