Topshop's New Face

It girl Gigi Hadid has been selected as the new face of high street label Topshop's Autumn- Winter campaign. Topshop's previous campaigns involved other models du jour, such as Cara Delevingne.

The campaign was styled by Topshop creative director Kate Phelan and shot by acclaimed photographer Tyrone Lebon.

Comfort for the sole

If you thought FitFlops could not get any more comfortable, you are wrong.

The British footwear brand has unveiled its new sole technology, the SupercomFF midsoles, at its recently opened pop-up here outside Robinsons The Heeren.

The new SupercomFF collection comprises shoes that are slimmer and sleeker. The new sole uses dual-density EVA, which is an elastic polymer. It is thinner than the original Microwobbleboard sole, which is made of triple-density EVA.

The new collection comes in metallic hues as well as muted neutrals such as brown, black and grey. The shoes are priced from $199.90 to $229.90.

Aside from the new SupercomFF collection, the pop-up will also carry Microwobbleboard designs. Prices from $109.90 to $229.90.

The pop-up ends on Aug 23.

Graffiti on make-up

Shu Uemura's latest make-up collection, Haute Street, takes its cues from bold street art.

For inspiration, the brand's international artistic director Kakuyasu Uchiide turned to the colourful graffiti of New York-based artist Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter, a prominent figure in Tokyo's underground art scene.

Emblazoned with Letter's signature graffiti motifs, the new line includes two colourful eyeshadow palettes, four lip and cheek tints, and two double-edged eye colour pencils. Prices start from $33 for a lipstick.
