How to act, live slow and keep the speed

'Slow' is a keyword that grew from eco-consciousness and is a new favorite term in our world.
But does it mean that we have to live without fashion, beauty, or speed? No, we only have to change our behaviour such as preferring products that are made of sustainable materials or choosing labels which are trying to reduce their carbon footprints.

No reason to fall into depressions if you can't quit some of your not-eco-friendly but beloved behaviours! Nobody is perfect.

For this hair look, Antoinette Beenders has brought at first volume into the hair by using a tonic before blow-drying. Even for the next step she has used a volumizer with matte texturizing effect to get this unfinished combed hair look which is later fixed with a spray. “The Sophie Théallet collection this season is inspired by folklore, so we wanted to take that sweet feeling and rough it up with some texture and tousled volume. This look captures the idea of a country girl who becomes a princess - quickly pulling her messy hair up into a beautiful and romantic style,” says Antoinette Beenders.

The bottle on this page is the first design of a bottle-series that will be released to coincide with the Vivienne Westwood fashion shows in February, June and September this year. The bottles are available in limited editions. The partnership between the UK designer and the Swiss reusable aluminium bottle builds awareness not to harm the planet by throwing away plastic. The idea is to help people to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising on style.
