The Luxe List: June

From books, films and music the culture desk are loving, to what our fashion and beauty eds are currently coveting, the SL team’s monthly Luxe List is a round-up of the coolest things to do, see and buy right now…


BRAND: With Jean

With Jean is the Aussie label you should be following on Instagram at the very least. All pieces are designed to wear with jeans (get it?) and from polka dot crop tops to square necklines, they encompass all of summer's must-have trends.


BOOK: The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh

The debut novel from Stylist short story competition-winner Sophie Mackintosh is being heralded as the new Handmaid’s Tale. In a dreamlike world (not too far from our own), where women are unsafe in their bodies, three sisters are isolated on an island; hidden by their parents from a violent, toxic society. But men are coming to find them…

A fun new way to scent your body, hair and clothing, these graffiti aerosol-inspired cans are filled with four exclusive new Jo Loves fragrances, priced £40 each. SL’s fave? The opulent and heady Tuberose is ideal for balmy summer evenings.



Dubbed ‘London’s coolest new restaurant’, Neptune is a modern seafood joint housed in Bloomsbury’s opulent Principal Hotel. Run by the duo behind former fashion crowd favourite, The Richmond, it comes kitted out with a centrepiece oyster bar, dreamy peach walls and art deco banquettes.

FILM: The Boy Downstairs

Miss getting your Girls fix each week? This sassy, Brooklyn-set rom-com starring Zosia Mamet (aka Shoshanna) will fill the void.

Filmmaker, journalist, model and radio host, Fenn O’Meally is a natural both in front of and behind the camera. From showing the world how to pull off baby pink Sandro boiler suits to interviewing Craig David on the Complex sofa, her Instagram is where to keep up with it all.

MUSIC: Arctic Monkeys Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino

The indie rock stars have made a long-awaited return with their sixth studio album. AM this is not – and reviews have been divided – but die-hard fans will appreciate the deep dive into Turner’s psyche, as he croons through some of his most self-aware lyrics to date.

Theatre: Blueberry on Toast

Created by award-winning US playwright, Mary Laws, and starring Gala Gordon (who you may recognise from her stint as Christine Keeler in The Crown), this hilarious new-to-the-UK production exposes the darker side of ‘happily ever after’.



INSTAGRAM TO FOLLOW: @Sundays_Are_For_Lovers

One for the hopeless romantics, this well curated Insta account describes itself as a 'never-ending love letter'. Expect to find plenty of #relationshipgoals photos of beautiful couples, including vintage snaps of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, alongside evocative shots (lipstick marks, bare skin, dreamy date locations) and inspiring quotes about love.
