Smart fashionista - In a quest to discover new writing talent (and highlight its eyewear campaign), PRADA is organizing a literary contest, in collaboration with Italian publishing house Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Editore. This is the moment to show the world that your skills go further than just being fashionable. But be prepared, it’s pretty serious business. Your essay should elaborate on the following subject: ”What are the realities that our eyes give back to us? And how are these realities filtered through lenses?”. But then again, the prize is pretty awesome: €5000 cold shopping cash and your essay will be published on Prada’s website. You can submit your entry until 18 June via prada.com/journal.
Going once, going twice, sold! - If you ever wanted to own a stunning vintage piece head to Christie’s site, because the iconic auction house is holding an exclusive online fashion auction this week. The offer is to die for: Hermès and Chanel handbags and wallets, Louis Vuitton luggage, Yves Saint Laurent costume jewelry and much more. The auctions runs until 2 May. And fret not, auction prices start at just £200!
Perfect summer nails – One of my favourite shoe designers, Pierre Hardy, has designed six fabulous nail polish duos for NARS, inspired by his latest spring/summer collection. The duos come in a miniature shoe bag with dust bag (how cool is that) and are available from 1 May via www.narscosmetics.co.uk.
