The most buz­zwor­thy sto­ries on our radar this month


H&M is on a roll this month with their ef­forts in giv­ing back — both to the en­vi­ron­ment and com­mu­nity. Come Oc­to­ber 2, H&M wants you to go green by wear­ing the colour blue from their Con­scious Denim col­lec­tion. Avail­able in pieces for the en­tire fam­ily, the range em­ploys eco-friendly pro­cesses and sus­tain­able ma­te­ri­als. The brand also had its denim washes graded against the high­est stan­dards of Span­ish denim con­sul­tants, Jeanolo­gia, to as­sess their en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact. The end re­sult? Lust-wor­thy den­ims in mod­ern cuts and deep indigo tones.

The fash­ion gi­ant also con­tin­ues with their an­nual All for Chil­dren col­lec­tion — a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort with UNICEF launched in 2009. This fan­tas­ti­cal set of looks was in­spired by an ad­ven­ture into the woods. Say hello to fun items like gecko bags, reptilian jog­gers and an owl-like pon­cho that will have your kids go­ing wild. Avail­able in stores and on­line from Oc­to­ber 30, 25 per cent of sales from the col­lec­tion will go to UNICEF, to give chil­dren in some of the world’s poor­est com­mu­ni­ties a bet­ter fu­ture through ed­u­ca­tion. If you ever need a rea­son to splurge for your­self and for your fam­ily, why not make it th­ese two re­ally good ones?

Mad about Ar­gan

Ar­gan is a pre­cious beauty in­gre­di­ent with a host of ben­e­fits for skin and hair, from keep­ing the skin hy­drated, to fight­ing the ef­fects of age­ing, and even heal­ing. The Body Shop now fea­tures this rare Moroc­can oil in a new Com­mu­nity Fair Trade Wild Ar­gan range, sourced from ar­gan nut grow­ers in the At­las moun­tains, so you can en­joy its heal­ing prop­er­ties from head to toe.

Snoopy & Belle IN FASH­ION

The world’s best-loved bea­gle, Snoopy, and his sis­ter Belle are back mak­ing waves in the fash­ion world, with Peanuts World­wide’s launch of the ‘Snoopy and Belle in Fash­ion’ ex­hi­bi­tion, which shows the Peanuts char­ac­ters wear­ing de­signs from the likes of Diane von Fursten­berg, DKNY, Tommy Hil­figer and Anna Sui. Timed to coin­cide with the 65th an­niver­sary of the Charles Schulz comic in 2015, the 30th an­niver­sary of the first ‘Snoopy in Fash­ion’ event and the brand’s first 3D film, the ex­hi­bi­tion opened in New York and heads to Paris, Mi­lan and Tokyo next year.
