Mecca Cosmetica SPF
Australian beauty brand Mecca has launched its sunscreen products in the UK. Its hero product is To Save Face SPF50+ Superscreen, and it’s one to be trusted because in Australia sunscreen is considered a medicine and thus strictly regulated. Lightweight, luxurious and loaded with skincare ingredients, the SPF delivers an invisible layer of chemical sun protection that looks as good as it feels.
Paperless Post x Lisa Corti
Lisa Corti and Paperless Post have collaborated on an eye-catching collection of notecards and envelopes. In celebration of the Italian textile brand’s 60th anniversary, the collection extends the brand’s maximalist style into a range of digital invitations for the first time. With archival designs offered alongside new ones, customers can choose from a mix of graphic stripes, florals and prints to help set the tone for summer events – whether that’s al fresco dinners, casual drinks, hen dos or milestone birthday parties.
THE BEACH CLUB:
Fendi For Puente Romano Beach Resort
Puente Romano Beach Resort in Marbella has just opened the world’s first Fendi beach club. The fashion house has partnered with the resort to cover popular beach club Chiringuito with vibrant colours, prints and stripes – picture cabanas and open-air lounges furnished with daybeds and beach chairs decorated with assorted red and yellow cushions. The resort will also host a Fendi summer pop-up opposite the beach club, which will stock the brand’s new Astrology Collection together with iconic pieces such as Peekaboo and Baguette bags.
Shrimps X Daisy London
British fashion brand Shrimps has teamed up with sustainable jewellery brand Daisy London to launch a collection of contemporary fine jewellery. The 21-piece offering brings together the unique and feminine aesthetic of both brands, and all the pieces are crafted from 100% recycled silver with 18ct gold plating. The limited capsule includes motifs from both brands – think fashion-forward pearls and intricate gold details.
THE FITNESS COLLECTION:
Aman Essentials has launched its first yoga collection, a natural evolution of the yoga experiences offered at Aman destinations for decades. The range includes a yoga mat with a strap, two yoga blocks, a cork ball and roller. The entire collection has been created using 100% natural, sustainably sourced cork. Known for its hypoallergenic properties, cork is durable and lightweight, insulates heat and retains warmth, as well as boasting a tactility designed to elevate your daily yoga practice.
THE FASHION COLLABORATION:
RIXO x Abisola Omole
Cult brand RIXO and creative director, Abisola Omole, have joined forces to create a new collection that covers sizes from a UK6 to a UK26. The fun and colourful eight-piece edit fuses Abisola’s aesthetic with RIXO classic favourites, with everything designed to ensure a wider range of shapes and sizes can enjoy the brand's most playful styles. It will launch on 5th July.
THE WEEKEND ESCAPE:
Maybourne La Plage
The Maybourne Riviera, set above the picturesque town of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, has a new beach club for summer 2023. Maybourne La Plage faces the Mediterranean and is inspired by both the golden age of the French Riviera and Slim Aarons pictures of the Amalfi Coast – picture pretty coral and orange-coloured restaurant furnishings and sun loungers. Guests can arrive directly by boat, mooring up to the club’s wooden pontoon. The restaurant serves an informal seasonal menu: think linguine alle vongole, grilled lobster and octopus, with a reimagined Tropezienne tart for dessert.
Steamed Rainbow by D.S. & Durga
D.S. & Durga’s creative scents are some of our favourites and, excitingly, there are two more about to join the line-up. Steamed Rainbow brings together ingredients to represent every colour in the rainbow, including violet, almond flower and mandarin. Fellow newcomer Pistachio is playfully sweet, with a nutty scent that surprises with its freshness. Meanwhile, those who are travelling this summer should pick up the brand’s new Pocket Perfumes – a collection of six signature scents packaged as colourful 10ml roll-on oils. Our pick is the Mexico-inspired Jazmin Yucatan.
This summer sees the launch of a ‘culinary emporium’ at RH England, housed within the brand's new gallery at Aynhoe Park in Oxfordshire. The 73-acre estate has been restored and reimagined as a design and hospitality destination complete with five restaurants and bars, plus the RH interior design studio. The Orangery is a fine-dining restaurant; there’s The Loggia, an informal pizza terrace; an elegant Tea Salon and Wine Lounge; and a specialist Juicery. In the beautiful surroundings of The Orangery, expect to sample the likes of rotisserie chicken and its signature dish, a wood-grilled avocado with 15g of Petrossian Imperial kaluga caviar.
Mirror Water x DryBy
