No Trainers Without a Morning – Sans Matin Trainers

Designed in London and handmade in Medellin, Colombia. The brand offers a range of luxurious, versatile and stylish sneakers for both men and women.

Developed by cousins Charly and Lockie Cunningham, the initial brand idea came about during the founders five-month backpacking trip around South America, where after a muddy trek and subsequent search for a new pair of sneakers, the SANS MATIN story was born.

Over the last decade, we have seen an enormous cultural shift taking place in modern businesses and start-ups, which challenges traditional work-place norms; conventional working hours and, more significantly for us, stiff dress codes. Sneakers signify this shift in culture and have now become the everyday footwear staple in nearly all environments – from nightclubs to offices. We needed a name that embodied these ideologies and personified the ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ concept which led us to SANS MATIN (translation: ‘Without Morning’)’– Founders Charly & Lockie Cunningham

SANS MATIN footwear is created for people searching for; original, comfortable and affordable sneakers that are carefully designed to suit every environment; from the office in London, to a bar in New York, to a local restaurant in Medellin.

As a brand SANS MATIN also feel that it is important to give back, that is why they donate 2% of all website sales to charity. The charity they are currently supporting is Children Change Colombia, which is the largest UK charity working exclusively in Colombia, working with children and their families to challenge poverty, equality, discrimination and violence.

Health Scalp, Health Mind, Well Harry thinks so – Harry’s launch Scalp care range

Harry’s launched in the UK in 2017 to provide guys with a better option when it came to shaving, now the brand is disrupting the dandruff category, challenging this tired industry by offering solution-based products that get to the root of the problem.

With 60% of Brits suffering from dandruff and 54% of guys agreeing it’s hard to figure out which anti-dandruff products are best for them, Harry’s new range makes it easy to find the products that work best for you, with a personalised and “level system” approach, that better serves customers – because everyone is different when it comes to scalp health. They’ve created a line that addresses the varying degrees of itching, flaking, and irritation guys might feel, which makes it easy to find the solution you really need.

They know that dandruff isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” problem. That’s why their new Anti-Dandruff 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioners come in three levels of care, all of which are made with 0% sulphates and gentle enough for everyday use. The range includes a 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner in 3 levels (Dry Scalp, Anti-Dandruff and Extra Strength Anti-Dandruff) which are clinically proven to relieve various levels of scalp and dandruff concerns while providing gentle cleansing, as well as a Scalp Scrub to remove dry skin, buildup and excess oil, and lastly, a Scalp Cream which sooths skin.

Harry’s have always prided themselves on making all their products with honest ingredients—with 0% parabens and sulphates. The same goes for all their new range of anti-dandruff and scalp care products. They’ve made it a point to develop formulations that work just as hard as we do when it comes to treating dandruff. Still, they’re gentle enough to use every day, and they won’t leave your hair feeling dry.

Reasonably priced and sustainably sourced, each natural fibre featured in the collection is carefully selected to ensure that the final garment looks and feels good to wear.

After her move from New York to Switzerland, Honstetter became more closely connected with nature and gained valuable knowledge about continuous fashion.
