The Luxe List: July

The SL team shares a selection of their new favourite things. From the fashion desk’s new launch of choice to the latest beauty must-have, our monthly Luxe List offers all the inspiration you need...

BRAND: Ren London

Independent London label Ren is the name to know for easy, relaxed summer separates. With a sustainable ethos – the brand creates its pieces with carefully sourced fabrics, from recycled cottons to raw silks, end-of-roll cut-offs to natural dyes – it's the name to know for pretty, seasonal dresses and tops with a conscience.



New concept APT offers the chance to get together with friends and family in an apartment at the Town Hall Hotel, where a leading chef will create a bespoke menu for up to ten guests. A new way of getting together in a safe yet stylish environment, the concept is simple: guests select a date and then choose from a huge range of big-name chefs, including Claude Bosi, Skye Gyngell and Selin Kiazim, who will cook up a feast on the day. A great way to support the hospitality industry.


SERVICE: Window Fleur

Window Fleur was created by cousins Joe and Frannie, who design window boxes to make your home as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. The boxes come pre-planted, ready to put into your window box and easy to refresh every season, so your windows are always bursting with colour. The beautiful blooms will be delivered straight to your door, four times a year.



CERAMICS: Kaneko Kohyo

Kaneko Kohyo Pottery Manufacturing Co celebrates its centennial in 2020. Originally Japan’s largest producer of tokkuri sake serving bottles, it now makes ceramics that mix beauty and functionality. Among its current collection, we love its scalloped Rinka dining range, which offers the delicacy of porcelain but with the feel and warmth of hand-formed clay.

NIGHTWEAR: Sarah Brown London

Sexy though the brand's lingerie is, it's Sarah Brown London's cutesy pyjama sets that have caught our eye this month. With a poplin finish, frill collar and trimmings, they're the perfect summer sleepwear – we particularly love pale blue styles with red details.


BOOK: How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? by Pandora Sykes

From faster-than-fast fashion to millennial burnout, the explosion of wellness to the rise of cancel culture, journalist and The High Low presenter Pandora Sykes interrogates the stories we’ve been sold and the ones we tell ourselves. Wide-ranging, thoughtful and witty, How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? explores the anxieties and myths that consume our lives and the tools we use to muddle through.


CARDS: Studio Sophie

Studio Sophie is the work of illustrator Sophie Harpley. Her love of paint and pattern has blossomed into a collection of artful stationery, including cards, wrapping papers, invitations and one-off homewares. Inspired by impressionist art, flora, fauna, travel and heritage, Sophie’s work adds a modern style to timeless motifs, and all Studio Sophie creations are made in Britain using sustainable materials.


PRODUCT: Victoria Beckham Beauty Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser 

VB’s original Priming Moisturiser was a bestseller. Now it’s available with a bronzy tint that lends a warm sheen to the skin. Think of it as a moisturiser-primer hybrid that works to boost and renew your skin’s cells. Ideal for when you want to treat your skin, but have it looking fresh and radiant at the same time. 


FRAGRANCE: Maison Margiela Replica Bubble Bath

Enjoy a moment of relaxation with Maison Margiela’s newest fragrance, which recreates the calming experience of a nice hot bath. The delicate florals, soap bubble clean accords, coconut scent and white musk all capture the touch of warm water and foaming bubbles. Expect further notes of bergamot, jasmine and patchouli.
