Kowtow Launches its First Ethical Coat Collection

It’s only a matter of time before coat-wearing weather is upon us, which means there’s no time like the present to hunt for the perfect coat that will see you through winter after winter.

Ethically minded fashionistas are in luck this season as Kowtow has just launched its first collection of ethical and sustainable merino wool coats. The brand’s first line of winter coats are made from ZQ certified merino wool and certified Global Recycle Standard (GRS) recycled nylon, fully lined with cupro and finished with tagua nut buttons.

“We are pleased to now offer the finishing touches of a winter wardrobe with our beautiful wool coats. We were excited after many months of development to finally gather all the ingredients of a coat that is in line with our ethical and sustainable values,” says Gosia Piatek, Kowtow founder and creative director.

The coats will come in two different styles, the Wool Overcoat ($890) and Wool Bomber ($850), in two classic colourways, Black & Sepia.

Three New Face Masks to Add to Your Beauty Routine Now

 A change in seasons can leave skin in need of extra care and attention. These rejuvenating face masks will help get your skin into tip-top condition.


Our skin’s own repair mechanisms go into overdrive when we’re busy getting much-needed shut-eye, therefore it pays to invest in the right bedtime beauty routine. If you want to rise and shine with the skin of your dreams, Sisley Velvet Sleeping Mask ($175) is a must-have.

Skin-health-boosting ingredients such as saffron flower extract, macadamia oil, kokum butter, Japanese lily turf extracts, shea butter and thyme honey ensure you step out of bed with glowing skin. The deeply nourishing ingredients boost your skin’s hydration levels while repairing skin at the same time so you wake up with stronger, more resilient skin.

If you’re still suffering from parched post-winter skin, you’ll want to reach for a face mask that quickly hydrates and nourishes skin in need. Kiehl’s Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask ($76) harnesses the powerful rejuvenating properties of vitamin-and-mineral-rich avocado extract to lock in moisture and revitalise skin.

The luxuriously creamy texture glides onto the skin to provide immediate comfort. Pressed and refined Avocado Oil, sourced from Spain and Italy, nourishes and boosts the skin’s barrier function with its potent blend of essential fatty acids while avocado fruit extract supports the skin’s own natural hydrating process.

Trilogy’s latest launch won’t just hydrate your skin – it’s also a joy to use. The jelly texture of  Trilogy Hydrating Jelly Mask ($37.99) instantly soothes and cools skin with its powerful blend of manuka honey, hyaluronic acid and Trilogy’s much-loved rosephip oil while a blend of refreshing kawakawa extract and aloe vera give skin a quick pick me. The end result is a radiance, firmer and smoother complexion.
