Whether for work or for play–the
clothes you wear are an expression
of who you are. Follow your instincts
and let colour play a part in your life.
The adidas fall collection introduces
deep corals with creamy clay, sexy
scarlet, bold bordeux and classic black.
Hooded jackets, sleek skate tops,
army pants, ‘trac’ tops, pinstripe polos
and long-sleeve tees set the backdrop for the legend of the 3-Stripes.

If you are an an athlete or a fan,
these two questions have the same
answer. As athletes, sport adds colour
to our lives through competition,
performance, emotion, or, by simply
wearing our favourite red shorts
during a morning run. As fans, we
define ourselves by the colours found
in sport–from cycling’s yellow jersey
to golf’s green jacket to a favourite
team’s jersey. The adidas collection
takes its inspiration from the sports
that add colour to our lives and
forever bind us as athletes and fans.
Colour captures the raw emotions of
sport and layers it with the 3-Stripes,
the authentic symbol of sport.
What inspires you?

Take control of your lashes and get the look you
want by choosing the best mascara for you
>>
MOST WOMEN CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THEIR
MASCARA. In addition to defining eyes, mascara
can thicken, curl and lengthen lashes. Even if you
don’t have time for any other makeup, mascara
makes you look and feel “polished.” Whether
it’s the finishing touch to full makeup or a light
application for a more discreet look, mascara
emphasizes and widens the eye.
There are so many choices and every woman’s
personal needs are different. The good news is
that great mascara doesn’t have to be expensive,
so it can be fun to try the different types to see
which one works best for you.
Modern formulations can thicken, lengthen and
curl lashes without smudging. “Most mascaras are
designed so that a natural look can be achieved
with one or two coats,” says L’Oréal Paris Makeup
Artist Eddie Maleterre. “For a more sophisticated
or intense look, all you need is to add more.” For
a natural daytime look, the general rule is to only
coat the top lashes. For nighttime drama, layer on
a second coat and lightly apply to bottom lashes.
