What COP27 means for the future of fashion

A few weeks ago, global stakeholders gathered in Egypt for the annual Cop27 summit (United Nations Climate Change Conference), where attention quickly turned to the fashion industry. Considered by several sources to be the second-most polluting industry after the oil and gas sector – (fashion accounts for up to 10% of global carbon dioxide output — more than international flights and shipping combined), it’s unsurprising that discussions pivoted towards fashion and its impact on the environment during the summit.

Santa Brands’ Yana Stanislavska on Creativity and Resilience

Its founder, Yana Stanislavska, is more determined than ever to see its continued success through challenging times. “It’s hard to cope with something as gruesome as a ballistic missile landing 300 metres from your bedroom but somehow we all manage to carry on,” she says, of how the Russian invasion of Ukraine has impacted herself and her team. “Staying creative and always being on the run is a good way to stay sane in any circumstances.” The label’s partywear packs plenty of versatility and has been a hit with influencers - think Leonie Hanne and Chiara Ferragni - and members of the global style set. Shimmering sparkles, ultra-light feather cuffs, and sheer fabrics with rhinestone embellishments are but a few things that make Santa Brands garments so alluring. While it's these bold details that first capture your attention, what makes the label so successful is having perfected these best-selling designs - the sparkly dresses, skirt and trouser co-ord sets, etc. - and creating equally wearable garments and accessories to complement them, such as its “Crystal Basque”, “Moonlight Panama” hat, and single-breasted fitted “Lemon Jacket.”

Women Who Launch: Meet Authentic_UA founders Yulia...

Authentic_UA was conceived by two Ukrainian-born women, Yulia Rorstrom and Eka Kapanadze, in efforts to provide a vital focal point for the celebration and exposure of Ukrainian fashion in London, whilst also raising funds for their home country that is currently at war with Russia. The founder of Duck & Dry - Yulia partnered with fashion stylist Eka, to host & curate the event, showcasing over 20 Ukrainian brands over a four week period November 7th - December 4th in Yulia's London salons: the Mayfair Duck & Dry location until Nov 20th, and the Chelsea Duck & Dry location until Dec 4th. Not only does this encourage Londoners to directly support these Ukrainian fashion brands & designers financially, helping sustain an industry facing a turbulent future, but Authentic_UA has also pledged to donate between 30% - 50% from every sale to 'Rebuild Ukraine Together', a charity set up by Yulia supporting Ukrainians during the war and working with volunteers on the ground to directly procure and distribute critical supplies The Sybarite had the amazing opportunity to sit down & chat with Yulia & Eka about Authentic_UA, fashion in Ukraine and their personal motivations for creating this brilliant feat!

Women Who Launch: Meet KAAI Co-founders Ine and Helga

We discuss KAAI’s scale-up journey, celebrating the brand’s 4th anniversary, its recent Paris pop-up store, and what’s next for the Antwerp-based handbag label. Since its 2017 launch, the business has charmed a growing fan-base of women with its ever-evolving range of high quality work-life bags. A KAAI bag will never compromise on style or substance and its “Carry your life” ethos holds true thanks to its “By women, for women” design strategy. Interviews with successful modern women have helped the team identify exactly what their needs are when it comes to bags and the gripes are universal; dependable work bags pack too masculine a punch and the more stylish models are impractical and amplify chaos. As for the name KAAI, meaning “The Quay” in Dutch, which was chosen to reflect Antwerp’s vibrant energy and the ever-moving waters of the River Scheldt, it also captures the fluidity of the modern woman’s day-to-day life.

Review of Globe Trotter - Luxury travel essentials

What you have by your side and what you choose to trundle is vital for the image and if you want to give the right impression. ''Travelware-upmanship'' is a game all travellers play. Travellers are brand conscious. They are as loyal to their luggage brand as the car they choose to drive and airline they choose to fly by.  It matters what wheels they choose to have under them.   “My seat in Business Class on a plane to a very important meeting is waiting”,  “I am on my way to an extended and very luxurious vacation that few people could ever afford”  and “ I buy my carry on in Mayfair” are impressions we all like to create.  It starts in the airport car park when we take longer than necessary unpacking so everyone can admire our super lightweight, bought from London’s Burlington Arcade  Globe Trotter four-wheel spinner grey/caramel  new  check-in case which screams “ Just out!”
