Best of fashion this week: Marc Jacobs Peanuts sweatshirt to Chanel's all-pink makeup essentials, here's what to sport on Labor Day
It is all about the extra layers, bolder shades and paying more attention to skincare, this pre-fall season
Labor Day is fast approaching and sales are about to get bigger and better. As the weather starts to cave in and we switch to our pre-fall clothing during the transitional season, it's all about the extra layers, bolder shades and paying more attention to our skincare. Here is this week's roundup of covetable fashion.
Charles M Shulz's Peanuts was a popular newspaper comic that ran for over five decades and became a household name. In the years that it was a weekly comic strip, it garnered a huge fan base from children to adults and even after it was discontinued, Snoopy and his crew's legacy has lived on through a variety of mediums. Marc Jacobs was one among the comic character's ardent fans and in tribute to the loveable cartoon that made his childhood, the fashion designer created a whole collection attributed to it.
A new addition to the Peanuts x Marc Jacobs collection is the sweatshirt featured above. Sporting our favorite original Peanuts characters in vibrant color, along with their signatures sayings on the back, the classic crew neck sweatshirt imbues a vintage feel. Amid the transitional season, the sweatshirt would be a trendy and old-school addition to any casual outfit, paired with denim trousers or bottoms. Now, you can wear a piece of your childhood wherever you go.
Being at home amid this chaotic time hasn't exactly given us the opportunity to venture out and indulge in all the activities we did before we went into lockdown.

Oscar de la Renta
For Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2020 collection, designers didn't start too far from home and drew inspiration from interiors reminiscent of 18th century Italy. They explore the relationship between the ancient heritage and modernity using Northern Italy's historic villas, the nobility and the panoramic landscape to a certain extent, as the muse. It is your typical sartorial escapism and the collection features tailored and modern separates cut from scenic tapestry prints. Silk moires that ooze luxury, wallpaper prints and more varied textures, along with intricate floral prints, tonal embroidery and ornate details form the core of the collection.
Featured above is a statement-making wide-leg pant, sporting an expansive landscape printed and into a structured fit with a waist-cinching belt. They evoke a sense of timeless style, that has been innate to the house since its inception. The collection celebrates the house codes, reinventing and adapting heritage in a way that appeals to the modern era, and those to come.
Lucis Pica is best-know for her iconic Le Rouge Collection No 1, the make-up line for Chanel released in 2016 that catapulted sales to new highs with its elaborate marketing campaign. She revolutionized Chanel's make-up venture by incorporating her love for the color red, in the Fall/Winter collection. It is safe to say that Le Rouge Collection No 1 marked the beginning of a new era for the French fashion house. Pica has yet again done the incredible for Fall/Winter 2020. Drawing inspiration from her iconic Les 4 Ombres palette, created in 2016, the CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer has created the Candeur et Experience Acte II, a subversive collection revolving around red, but mostly based on pink tones.
"I wanted to look at the transgression of pink, show its radical side," said Pica, on the new collection. The color embodies innocence, shyness, passion, and purity even seldom evoking transgressive, provocative and forbidden ardor. It focuses on the essence of the color, envisioning pink as the new red. Pica challenges the preconceived notions and reinvents the color, giving it a refreshing texture and shape that oscillates between innocence and experience. Pinks infused in reds, the make-up range includes a treasure trove of products from luminous-matte eye-shadow palettes that pronounce enigmatic eyes to apricot-beige lipsticks for luscious lips.
Rihanna's new skincare venture has been breaking records. She came, she saw, and she conquered the beauty world with Fenty Skin, the skincare line that has been at the tip of everyone's tongue, recently. RiRi's beauty brand came to slay when Fenty Beauty became one of the firsts to reach a new level of inclusivity with its make-up offerings. Fenty Skin is looking to achieve a similar goal by making it inclusive to both men and women. Yes sir, Fenty Skin products are gender-neutral - for him and her. Although still nascent, Fenty Skin has introduced a couple of staple skincare products inherent to every skincare regimen and is now laying down the essentials for a clinically tested 3-step routine.
Featured above is the Fenty Skin cleanser, toner and moisture that when used together are bound to brighten the skin, reduce the look of pores, hydrate, and protect your skin while targetting dark spots. Riri's routine is only three simple steps, with three multi-tasking products. First comes the Total Cleans'r Remove-it-all cleanser, which gives you the thorough deep cleanse that your face deserves. It is a creamy formula that rids your skin of oil, dirt, and longwear make-up without stripping or drying excessively.
Step two is the Fat Water Pore Refining toner serum, a do-it-all toner-serum combo made of thick and fast-absorbing texture that targets pores, improves the looks of dark spots, brightens, smooths and fights shine without stripping your skin off the essentials. The final step is to protect and hydrate your skin with the Hydra Visor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, a 2-in-1 solution for your skin. It is a sunscreen cum moisturizer that is lightweight, oil-free, and great for all skin tones, serving as the perfect base for your makeup as well.
