Temporary tattoos

The next big thing is temporary tattoos. With the ever-changing world of fashion becoming increasingly fast paced and inter-changeable, it’s easy to become scared of commitment. Temporary tattoos are perfect, and with big names like Topshop and River Island including them in their jewellery stands, they are likely to be here to stay (well, for two to five days).

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M
