Amazing. restrained timeless Beauty
During the Middle ages, and even in the Renaissance and until the 18th century, eyelashes were not styled. Women, in general, removed eyelashes and eyebrows in order to give more importance to the forehead, which was the most important feature in females’ faces at that time.
Women were not supposed to exhibit their hair in public, and by several ecclesiastical edicts, the Catholic Church condemned that practice as an offense to God and the church, and a sin. It obviously included eyebrows and eyelashes.

Marble Surf Boards by Haydenshapes and Alexander Wang
The latest Cage installation at Alexander Wang’s Soho flagship store features five marble print surfboards, exclusively created by leading Australian surfboard brand Haydenshapes.
Haydenshapes founder, Hayden Cox, personally crafted each limited edition surfboard by hand. Photographs of unique marble slabs were digitally printed onto silk, then onto the boards, to create one of a kind designs.
The surfboards are the award winning Haydenshapes Hypto Krypto model, which was recently awarded ‘Surfboard of the Year’ by the Australian Surf and Board Sports Industry Association.
