CLEAR FASHION, THE YUKA OF FASHION
While fashion finally begins its examination of conscience, two young entrepreneurs, Rym Trabelsi and Marguerite Dorangeon, launch Clear Fashion, an application challenging the textile market. The two 25-year-old women have listed more than 80 brands – including the most demanded in terms of purchase like Zara, H&M, Nike, Maje, Sandro or Uniqlo.
On each of them, the duo collected data to evaluate the impact and the commitment of these brands according to four criteria: Human, health, environment and animals are thus rated out of 100. But the free application goes further by allowing users to scan the labels or hand-enter the composition of the garment giving the opportunity to discover the score assigned but also to compare products and choose the one that corresponds best to the desired values. Users can thus support labels that produce in a responsible way and, above all, encourage brands to be more transparent towards a market that is now synonymous with eco – responsibility and desirability.

DiPTyQUE IMAGINEs the first scented tattoo
Self-proclaimed “techno-poet house”, Diptyque imagines the first scented patch. Three motifs like shadows, placed in the hollow of the neck, on the wrist or behind the ear, quite similar to tattoos. We must get closer to distinguish the relief of these matte satin patches, which each diffuse one of the iconic perfumes of Diptyque. A flower for Eau Rose, a tuberose for Do Son and a swan for l’Ombre dans l’eau, all three impregnated with a concentrate that diffuses throughout the day.
