Deepika Padukone is ready for her jury duty at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, but before that she had other business to consider. She took a slight detour to attend the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2023 Show in San Diego and in case you missed it, this also marks her first appearance for the luxury brand as an Indian ambassador. Deepika Padukone is on her way to world domination in case you didn’t know. For the show, she was styled by her trusty Shaleena Nathani who now knows what looks effortless on Deepika. She wore an oversized coat over her striped collar dress with sheer stockings, long beige boots and the Louis Vuitton Dauphine handbag priced at nearly Rs 3 Lakh. Her tousled bun was a nice casual addition to her beauty look with her signature liner and nude lip.

On the road to success, she stopped over in Venice for the Venice Biennale not too long ago. She was dressed head-to-toe in Louis Vuitton in a modern, sculpted understanding of classic Venetian fashion elements. La Dauphine seems to be her favorite handbag of the moment, it seems, as she has replaced it with the famous ‘Since 1856’ jacquard which is priced at nearly Rs 3.5 Lakh.

It’s safe to say her airport looks are going to be all Louis Vuitton from now on and we caught a glimpse of her recently before she took off for San Diego. She was dressed in a chic and comfortable lemon yellow athleisure ensemble which she paired with black combat boots and the black OnTheGo handbag which costs around Rs 2.7 Lakh. You will definitely be on the go with a large handbag that allows you to carry your world in it.

Deepika posed in a very chic Louis Vuitton ensemble during her Gehraiyaan promotion days, and we should have known that something was brewing at that time.

]]> Summer 2022 clothing trends to have on your radar Fri, 13 May 2022 00:26:49 +0000

What is – and let’s be honest here – the state of the dresses in your summer wardrobe? Have you worn your windy maxi dresses to the hilt? Is your 2020 era nap dress officially on its last legs (hey, it ran well!)? If so, don’t avoid it anymore: it’s time to restock your dresses. But before you wander aimlessly into the wild Wild West that is online shopping or head to your local retailer for an IRL hunt, check out the summer 2022 clothing trends first. New York-based trend forecaster Kendall Becker tells TZR there’s a huge “emphasis on dresses in the market this season.” As a result, sorting through the plethora of options can be quite overwhelming. But Becker says there’s a silver lining to the huge range of styles: “This ensures there’s a trend for every personal style and every occasion.”

Ultimately, however, the trend analyst says summer’s top clothing options fall into three categories: “Rave, romance, and beach resort — all of which suit our current state of society outside of fashion too. All in all, this season’s attitude really allows for experimentation and the opportunity to live out our wildest sartorial dreams after sweating too long. She invites you to reflect on the Spring/Summer 2022 collections for concrete examples: new seasonal drops from Carolina Herrera and Tory Burch, for example, feature corseted maxi dresses and seductive mini-dresses celebrating an ostentatious and unapologetic femininity – an aesthetic you probably couldn’t mimic while wrapping your figure in loungewear.

In other words, summer 2022 is the season to throw caution to the wind and press “buy” on that slanted scissor party dress or that sheer, crisp maxi you’ve been coveting for a long time. Becker, for her part, has already set her sights on a few options: “I can’t wait to expand my evening palette from all-black to incorporate vibrant jewel tones, take on crochet pieces on my travels in Latin America and wear softer options with sultry corset for date night.

From sultry, party-ready silhouettes to dresses inspired by distant beaches, keep scrolling to discover seven of summer’s top dress trends and a selection to shop too.

“There’s an unrelenting desire for escapism that we see reflected through poplin dresses, sunset shades, crochet and drapes that look like a nod to a sarong,” says Becker. Moda Operandi’s chief merchandiser, April Hennig, co-signs Becker’s note on the hook, saying it’s “without a doubt one of the biggest trends of summer 2022, as many of the best dresses in the season focus on craftsmanship and hand-spun details”.

In particular, Hennig shouts out to up-and-coming designer (and knitting master) Alejandra Alonso Rojas for having “refined bohemian sexiness.” She says the label’s crocheted, dip-dyed maxi dress is “a study in versatility – it can be worn over a swimsuit on vacation or paired with minimal silver jewelry for a night out on the town” .

Isn’t that romantic?

“Romance is definitely in the air once again, as the evolution of nap dress and cottagecore takes place,” says Becker. “The focus is on the corset, feminine details and soft details like bows and feathers,” describes the trend analyst.

Many of summer’s hottest dresses explore natural themes and patterns through a non-literal, abstract perspective. You’ll see plenty of floral prints, only in more painterly and artistic manifestations, and unconventional interpretations of iconic fashion patterns, like Tyler McGillivary’s macro-enlarged butterfly dress.

Hennig spotlights Magda Butrym’s detailed floral mini, saying the designer’s party dresses are a perennial Moda favorite and the rosette dress will also reach viral status. “Little hem? Check. Cutouts? Check. 3D flowers? Check!”

evening hook

Hennig says summer 2022 will usher in a slew of non-kitschy, handcrafted dresses for nighttime pursuits. The market expert particularly highlights Diotima’s Sade midi dress, dubbing it Moda Operandi’s It dress of the season.

“Rachel Scott, Diotima’s founder and New York-based designer, works with Jamaican artisans on many of her collection’s fabrications, fusing traditional island craft techniques with her vision of modern design,” says Hennig. “Her take on ‘evening’ crochet, intricately interwoven with crystals, is the coolest iteration of the trend we’ve seen – expect to see this dress at a dance party near you soon.”

Party activated

“With the return of festivals and events, dressing up, in and of itself, seems to be the code of choice, and sex appeal is front and center,” says Becker. “When it comes to dresses, it shows through mini lengths, cutouts, and vibrant hues like hot pink, lime, and electric lavender.”

Hennig echoes Becker on party-ready dresses and cites the Y2K revival of the early 2000s for leading the trend. “The micro-mini [holds] short as a must-own silhouette for Summer 2022 and harkens back to a time when a bejeweled Sidekick was the only accessory you needed to have a good time on the town,” she says.

Hennig says you want to fill your summer wardrobe with dresses “perfect for all those ‘big day’ type occasions that are slamming back onto the calendar – baby and bridal showers, charity lunches and outdoor cocktail parties. air in the afternoon.”

Specifically, Hennig highlights “the ‘mid-summer mini dress’ as a must-have this season. She elaborates, “With its cropped hemline and ease of wear, it goes from day to night with a quick change of shoes and outfits. Johanna Ortiz’s embellished puff-sleeve mini dress captures the spirit of the trend with its beautiful sleeves and wave-inspired embroidery.

Carefree elegance

“There’s also a relaxed, elegant energy to many collections this season,” says Hennig. Opt for simple options like a strappy dress that channels ’90s minimalism or a camisole-style dress that offers the effortless appeal of a tank top.

Hennig focuses on a micro-aspect of this trend that celebrates carefree, skilful femininity — a mood she’s dubbed “The Talented Mrs. Ripley.” fitted, bespoke linen, nautical and gingham stripes.

Even the soles of your shoes could save your life. | by the Washington State Department of Health | Public Health Connection | May 2022 Thu, 12 May 2022 16:23:15 +0000

Or the life of someone you love.

More than 1,000 people over the age of 60 in Washington state died in 2020 from injuries caused by accidental falls. And nearly one in three adults in our state age 65 and older fell that year.

Falls can be avoided, that’s why fall prevention is an important conversation to have with your family and friends. “Falls Prevention” is how we describe our work to prevent seniors from falling and injuring themselves.

Regular balance and strengthening exercises are important to help you avoid falls and survive them if you fall.

Our state emergency care system is there to care for Washingtonians when we experience trauma, such as an injury. But the best way to avoid needing this help is to take steps to prevent an injury from occurring.

How to prevent falls

Here are 8 steps you can take to reduce the risk of falls inside and outside your home. And for those who are younger, please share them with the older people in your life.

  1. Do balance and strengthening exercises at least three times a week.
  2. Always wear shoes that fit your feet well and have sturdy, non-slip soles.
  3. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to review your medications for side effects that may cause falls.
  4. Have your vision checked by an ophthalmologist every year and wear glasses if your doctor prescribes them
  5. Make sure you have enough lighting in your home to be able to move around safely.
  6. Ask your doctor to do a fall risk screening and tell them if you’ve fallen recently.
  7. Make your home safer: put grab bars in the shower, add rails to both sides of your stairs, and remove throw rugs.
  8. Ask an audiologist to check your hearing if you or your family notice that you are having difficulty. Hearing is an important factor in keeping your balance.

Where to find out more

Our state Urgent care system takes a comprehensive approach to the management of traumatic injuries. These include injury prevention services, emergency medical services, hospital care and rehabilitation facilities. The system works to ensure resources are available, so patients are quickly connected to the right facility.

Fashion stalls on the climate. Suppliers try to act Thu, 12 May 2022 09:32:07 +0000

To become a Vogue Business Member and receive the Sustainability Edit newsletter, Click here.

Brands have sustainability goals, but fall short of meeting them. With most of the fashion industry’s footprint generated in the supply chain, from farmers to manufacturers, a supplier-led conference this week could offer a roadmap for bridging that gap.

Fashion brands rarely own or oversee their supply chain, from raw material sourcing to fabric production. This means that the work to achieve the climate goals, for which brands are increasingly ambitious and public, must be done at a level that they do not directly control. And most of these works require large investments. One of the reasons climate progress remains slow is that suppliers, who tend to operate on very thin margins, need more support from brands to enable the switch to renewables, for example – as well as laws and regulations to encourage access to climate-friendly technologies.

Fashion’s climate goals have a funding problem

There’s a funding gap in fashion’s sustainability commitments, highlighted in a new report estimating a $1 trillion shortfall to meet decarbonization goals. We unpack where, why and how to fix it.

On Tuesday, the Sustainable Apparel Forum in Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka, brought together brands and suppliers with labor organizers, policy makers, garment worker advocates, academics and green tech companies – collectively representing more than 20 countries – to open discussions from both sides of the table on climate action, safe working conditions and other pervasive topics in the fashion supply chain.

What sets this week’s event apart is that vendors weren’t just very present, they created and hosted it, bringing together people who know what needs to happen with people who can help make it happen. . It is rare for suppliers, brands, unions and government officials to be in the same room discussing solutions together. This is precisely why Mostafiz Uddin, founder and CEO of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange and owner of a denim factory, said he organized the forum in Dhaka: to put the different needs and opportunities on one agenda – and for Bangladesh to set an example for other manufacturing countries and for brands.

The Sustainable Apparel Forum, held this week in Dhaka, was organized by Bangladesh Apparel Exchange in partnership with the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association.
