Day 3: The ‘Carina’ Bag (words by Anna Marie Galea)

Posted by in Exclusive, Fashion

Founder of Models M and style maven Carina Camilleri, is the ultimate ambassador of cool glamour. Here, Anna Marie Galea asks her about her first Charles&Ron experience and how the ‘Carina’ represents her and her lifestyle. When did you first discover Charles & Ron? I have been friends with this talented duo for years and years. In fact, I knew them when their label was still Beatrix and many a time I would go down to their studio and try on all the collection prior to the shows. I’ve travelled to…read more

Day 2: The ‘Kristen’ Bag (words by Joe Fountain)

Posted by in Exclusive, Fashion

Joe Fountain shares an actual Facebook chat with Kristen Buhagiar, the muse who helped inspire the ‘Kristen‘ beach bag – an intimate insight into a conversation between two old friends. The original plan was to catch up with Kristen in real time during a recent visit to Malta. It would have been the perfect opportunity to do the interview with the exotic beauty I first laid eyes on almost twenty years ago and who I’ve seen flourish into one of the Island’s most successful and recognizable faces. Unfortunately, more because of my hectic schedule…read more

Day 1: The ‘Luisa’ Bag (words by Monique Chambers)

Posted by in Exclusive, Fashion

Indulge Magazine editor Monique Chambers interviews Luisa Attard, who lends her name to Charles&Ron‘s ‘Luisa‘ Bag. Classic with a twist, enduring and reliable are all things that sum up Charles&Ron’s collections; and since the very beginning, the model they chose more often than not to carry their show-finale dress, would be Luisa. Luisa started modelling in 1998 and her career spanned the births of her children. So striking, Luisa was nicknamed ‘Mary Poppins’ by the design duo, as she always had whatever anyone needed, from tissues to homeopathic remedies, to pens to polish. And that…read more

Introducing: Recured.

Posted by in Exclusive, Fashion

Over the past couple of weeks, a clothing revolution was happening. You may have noticed it, or seen a photo or come across a starkly honest status. I was instantly interested in the brand – not just in their amazing designs but also in their choice of wording and the way they’re marketing their products. Understandably, as it still hadn’t (and hasn’t) been launched, questions were raised; questions which I felt were too important to be left unanswered. Well, on 3rd July, the wait will be over, but before that,…read more

Testing the New SEAT ‘Mii’

Posted by in Automobiles, Sponsored

Aspiring motoring journalist JAMES AHREN GRECH takes the new SEAT ‘Mii’ for a spin. Here’s his verdict! SEAT’s New ‘Mii’ is VAG’s latest offer to city cars, and is quite similar to the VW ‘Up!’ and the Skoda ‘Citigo’ in terms of mechanical details. Nevertheless, the SEAT ‘Mii’ is cheaper to buy and gets its own, individual flavour and styling.   What Do You Get? Well, to begin with, a surprising amount of space! For a car with such diminutive proportions, the cabin feels light and airy – a breath…read more
