THE DESTINATION: Kirstie Le Marque At Liberty
Jewellery brand Kirstie le Marque has just launched in Liberty – giving us yet another excuse to visit the iconic British department store. Founded in London in 2017 by Claire Le Marquand and Kirstie Beecroft, the demi-fine jewellery brand is known for its vintage-inspired contemporary diamond jewellery, all of which is designed to be worn every day. The effortless aesthetic and accessible pricing have already won it a legion of A-list fans, too.
THE INFLUENCER HAIR RANGE: Ceremonia
Influencer Babba C. Rivera is known for her glossy hair and now, she’s sharing her secrets via new brand Ceremonia. Inspired by her Latinx heritage, Babba set out to create a range that nourished hair and enhanced shine, but used only the best, natural ingredients. Babba also believes that if you deeply hydrate your hair, you won’t need to heat style it as much – thus cutting down on damage and dehydration. Whether you want to tackle tangles, improve scalp health or smooth frizz, this concise range ticks all the boxes. The shampoo and conditioner duo are great for everyday maintenance, while the Pequi Curl Activator is a great way to add bounce to your hair.
THE BRAND: The Ukrainian Label
Our latest discovery, Ukrainian brand Katimo, is the new name to know for minimalist fashion. The brand’s spring/summer collection includes a range of elevated capsule pieces crafted from natural materials, with timeless cuts and a less-is-more approach to the decorative details. Favourites include the Peremoga and Freedom dresses.
THE FILM: The Princess
We’ve had The Crown and last year’s Spencer and now The Princess tells the story of Princess Diana exclusively through archival footage, creating a bold and immersive narrative of her life and death. Turning the camera back on the audience, the film illuminates the profound impact she had and how the public’s attitude to the monarchy was, and still is, shaped by these events.
THE LUXE CANDLE LAUNCH: SUN.DAY of London Scented Sculptures
We’re huge fans of Sun.Day of London. Handcrafted in a Hackney Wick workshop and formulated using natural, essential oils, everything is free from synthetic fragrances and paraffin. That includes these limited edition ‘scented sculptures’ which are set into porcelain with a hanging ribbon. Refillable, you can return the jar and have a new candle fitted once you’ve burnt the original one away. Available in some of the brand’s bestselling scents, there are seven different sculptures available, with fine artist Ikuko illustrating each one . Depending on which one you get, your candle will have a limited-edition number on the back – from 1-100 – making it a thoughtful gift for a loved one.
THE POP-UP: Dior x Splendido, Portofino
Belmond hotel Splendido in Portofino has opened a wellbeing pop-up with Dior in its gardens. Until the end of September, guests can stop by two Dior spa gazebos for al fresco treatments and therapies using Dior skincare, including a new Dior Bronze Signature Massage which helps to soothe and protect skin from the sun. After a treatment or two, visit the nearby beach Bagni Fiore to relax on a sun lounger upholstered in Dior’s signature toile de Jouy print, and browse the new Dioriviera capsule collection at the pop-up boutique.
THE WELLNESS LAUNCH:
If cold water swimming is something you’re keen to try but aren’t sure where to start, Monk is the UK’s first smart ice bath app to keep on your radar. Bringing the mental and physical health benefits of cold water therapy straight to your home, the Monk smart bath is controlled through an app, promising muscle recovery, immunity and improved focus. As you plunge into the icy depths, data is tracked and pulled through to your phone so you can track your progress. Monk is launching later this summer – sign up to the waiting list here.
THE FILM: Persuasion
Living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities. When Frederick Wentworth – the dashing man she let get away – crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances. Adapted from the Jane Austen novel, this Netflix film stars Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, Henry Golding and Richard E. Grant.
THE COLLAB: Anna Mason x Maison Margaux
Maison Margaux has teamed up with British fashion designer Anna Mason to create a limited edition placemat and napkin collection – so you now can add a touch of the fashion brand’s unique, feminine style to your home. The just-launched range includes two hero designs – The Florence, a minimalist style set against Anna Masons' painterly blush stripe linen paying homage to Cocteau, as well as legendary designer Elsie de Wolfe, and the Ophelia, set against Anna's exclusive SS22 Provence-inspired 'Cascarin' print. Either would make a pretty addition to your summer table.
THE BOOK: The House of Fortune by Jessie Burton
In the long-awaited sequel to Jessie Burton’s bestseller The Miniaturist, Thea Brandt is turning 18, and she is ready to welcome adulthood with open arms. At the city’s theatre, Walter, the love of her life, awaits, but at home in the house on the Herengracht, all is not well – her father Otto and Aunt Nella argue endlessly, and the Brandt family are selling their furniture to survive. On Thea’s birthday, also the day that her mother Marin died, the secrets from the past begin to overwhelm the present. And when Nella feels a strange prickling sensation on the back of her neck, she remembers the miniaturist who entered her life and toyed with her fortunes 18 years ago.
