How to use Twisted Sista
The key to getting the most out of Twisted Sista products is mixing it up. “Experiment with cocktailing our styling items and see which combination works for you,” advises brand stylist and educator Craig Carter. “Some curls may need both a curl activator crème and a gel, some curls may just need a leave-in conditioner.”

Coach announces the launch of the brand’s global advertising campaign for the Fall 2018 collection with a series of images featuring the Coach gang draped over moss-green vintage cars in New York City’s back streets. Local street art adorns the exposed brick walls, as well as murals picturing the prairie fields and deserts of the Mid-West linking to the soft hues found in the collection.

The gang has an eclectic style, layering vintage wallpaper prints and prairie lace dresses with fringed soft leather biker jackets and teddy-bear style shearling coats. This romanticism and nostalgia are as always counterbalanced with a nod to Coach’s home city of New York – this time with a darker gothic and mystical twist.

American heritage sportswear makes a stronger appearance this season, with cross body bags, rucksacks and Signature print bomber and varsity jackets for both guys and girls. Taking its cue from 90’s streetwear that the brand’s Creative Director, Stuart Vevers, sees on the streets of New York City today, it’s a contemporary way of dressing that has arrived in the world of Coach. 


Accessories as always are central to the collection and campaign. Bonnie Cashin archive iconic styles have been brought back in the shape of leather coats, to sit alongside the Signature print pieces that are so prominent in the collection. Showcasing Coach’s heritage in a modern way, Vevers has also worked with artist Chelsea Champlain and her painterly mystic roses, moths and floral skulls on soft leather Dreamer bags.

Actress and singer Selena Gomez return in her third campaign as the face of Coach. The series of images captures Gomez in the Fall 2018 collection resting on a vintage car. Set on a quintessential New York City street, the images highlight the season’s new bags, with Gomez carrying the Dreamer bag, a new silhouette featuring the Signature print, embroidery and leather detailing. 

This season, the Coach family includes brand ambassadors Japanese actress and model Kiko Mizuhara, Chinese actress Guan Xiaotong, and Chinese actor Timmy Xu. This global casting nods to New York City’s melting pot of citizens and their unique way of dressing each day, which is so key to Vevers’ vision for Coach. This season’s cast also features models Ali LatifBlesnya MinherJoaquim ArnellLily NovaNina GulienRemington Williams and William Grant. Pictured in the campaigns soft back-light and patchwork collaged images, this together reflects the layering of the clothes and how the Coach gang dresses today. 

“I love the way that we have pushed the Coach gang further this season to be more unique, diverse and just overall cool in their attitude,” said Vevers. “It’s how I see people here in New York enjoying wearing clothes and just feels really relevant to me.”

For this season’s campaign, Coach worked with longtime collaborators, including photographer Steven Meisel, creative director Fabien Baron, makeup artist Pat McGrath and hairstylist Guido Palau.

7 Tips for Healthy Hair

Tip # 1: Have the Right Equipment
Even during the summer months, it is recommended to have a suitable hairbrush: while those plastic or metal damage the cuticle of the hair and the scalp, natural brushes based on boar hair release the follicles of the hair from their grease, dust, dirt and give them a natural shine.

Tip # 2: Be Sensitive
To wash your hair every day or one, two or three times a week: every person has their own habits. However, it should be noted that wet hair is particularly sensitive because the cuticles in the scalp are open. Specialists therefore usually apply a hair mask in preparation for washing, which helps to treat the cuticles and allow for a thorough cleansing of the hair. Finally, let hair air dry or use an infrared hairdryer for optimum and healthy results.

Tip # 3: Care Consistency is Key
Hair is exposed to many aggressions throughout the summer: UV rays, chlorine, sea salt or wind - all help to dry it, make it dull and difficult to style. Fortunately, there are solutions to prepare it for a harsh drought: a protective shampoo color will restore the color of hair, provide shine and intensive care for damaged hair. Follow through with a conditioner from the same range for best results.


Tip # 4: Prepare. Prime. Protect.
It is vital that when using heated appliances to dry and style your hair that a pre-styling cream and a heat protector is applied so that your hair is likely to become dry and damaged from the heat. It’s just an extra 30 seconds to your routine that could save you from the savage split ends!

Tip # 5: Take care of your Tips
Your ends will probably not keep a good memory of the summer: they are very exposed during this period and will dehydrate quickly, provoking breakage and devitalization. The consequences: the hair will split at the ends. However, with the right remedy, you may be able to ensure a quiet summer: in addition to your regular haircut, a delicate shampoo and rehydrating and specific products to treat split ends should be applied.

Tip # 6: Inner Beauty
It's the inner beauty that counts - and it's also applicable to your hair. That's why you can allow healthy growth by adapting your diet: vitamin A, for example, will make the hair soft, it is found in peppers or apricots. This will give you even more desire to prepare a delicious smoothie or a succulent summer salad. Vitamin B, which is found in large amounts in meat and eggs, will improve the metabolism of the hair root, while zinc and biotin will increase hair growth and keratin production.

Tip # 7: Fresh Hair in a Flash
No time to wash your hair? This scenario is timeless and can turn your day into a nightmare. Still, dry shampoo can surely save you! It is fast and easy to use, perfumes the hair and restores its freshness. You just have to put it on your out-of-bed-look and in the blink of an eye you would have a perfect look for the whole day!
