THE VINTAGE POP-UP:
Heristoria x The Cadogan
This month The Cadogan is partnering with LVMH to celebrate Chelsea in Bloom and pay tribute to the 2023 theme by showcasing a curated edit of vintage items connected to the world of film. Taking over the hotel, 'Heristoria' will see a luxurious shopping pop-up offer timeless treasures such as a Fred ring, whose collection was worn by Caterina Murino in the film Casino Royale and a Fendi baguette bag adorned with daisies from the 2000 spring/summer collection. One-to-one appointments will be held in the hotel’s sumptuous suites where guests can discover more pieces in the collection.
This month sees the launch of the first Anya Hindmarch ceramics collection, a range of tableware and accessories inspired by happy memories created around the table. Named Bull In A China Shop, the collection of fresh white designs – teapots, eggcups, coffee mugs and salt and pepper shakers – is hand-painted in Stoke-on-Trent, carefully wrapped in sleek made-to-keep packaging and – like all of Anya’s designs – intended to bring joy. We also love the look of the embroidered fresh white linen napkins. You can shop the range online or at the brand’s Village Hall in Belgravia.
THE JEWELLERY COLLAB:
YSSO x Danielle Copperman
London-based jewellery brand and SL favourite YSSO is known for blending modern designs with Greek heritage and this month it's collaborated with sustainable style influencer Danielle Copperman on a new collection. The designs are the result of the two's shared love for handcrafted, authentic design as well as Danielle's love of vintage jewellery. The principles of the collection centre on slow and timeless design and a strong commitment to conscious consumerism. The collection consists of earrings, bracelets, a ring and one limited edition necklace. Everything will be available from 2nd June with prices starting from £180.
THE HOMEWARE LAUNCH:
For her playful new ‘Amuse Bush’ collection, ceramicist Anissa Kermiche uses ambiguous hand-drawn forms to represent reproductive organs. From ‘Ovu-plate’ and ‘Pollination’ bowls to the cheeky ‘Masturplate’ and ‘Forniplate’, the collection intends to “depict the full reproductive experience, through intricate storytelling in a way that hasn’t been seen before in homeware”. The breast-shaped 'Tatas Plates' are another nod to the nude-form vases she’s become synonymous with.
THE FOODIE COLLAB:
Outcrop is a forthcoming restaurant and arts space from Luca founders Johnny Smith and Daniel Willis, three of the team from Secret Cinema and AngloThai. Opening at 180 The Strand this month, Outcrop aims to be a new type of gathering place – a green social club within the city that brings people together to eat, drink and have fun, while having a positive impact on the planet. The restaurant will be run by AngloThai's John Chantarasak, focusing on John's signature Thai cooking using UK-grown ingredients and seasonal British produce. Outcrop will also offer a comprehensive arts and music programme featuring a musical line-up showcasing rising and established DJ talent.

Until the end of July, the partnership sees the introduction of 'CBD Glow Therapy', which adds a restorative facial and signature massages to the next-level wellness experiences available at the Spa at Gleneagles.

Created exclusively for the brand by renowned perfumer Jérôme Epinette, the collection aims to recreate those all-important holiday moments at home, capturing the essence of each destination. Expect scents to span everything from Mediterranean paradises (Mykonos Muse, Ibiza Bohemia) to winter wonderlands (Gstaad Glam) and wild escapes (Moon Paradise).
Hotel Corazón in the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca is gearing up to reopen with a new look. Amid the mountains and the sea, it’s set to be a luxury hotel for a new generation of travellers who want to walk barefoot, eat straight from the land and swim in the sea at night. Of all the suites, we love the look of Baba Royale, an enormous first-floor room with two French balconies; mountain and garden views; a living area with a desk, divan, lounge chairs and decorative fireplace; and an impressive egg-shaped dome shower.
Fresh off the success of new American spy series Citadel (currently showing on Amazon Prime) and the campaign trail for her new rom-com Love Again, Priyanka Chopra is having a moment. The actress enlisted the expertise of red carpet stylist Rebecca Corbin Murray for her recent sequence of standout looks. Be it simple white Proenza Schouler or Pierpaolo Piccioli’s dramatic creations for Valentino, her choices are always bold and unapologetically feminine. Our favourite so far has to be the off-the-shoulder dress she wore to the Love Again premiere – designed by Harris Reed for Nina Ricci’s AW23 collection, the pale blue gown featured a giant bow at the back and voluminous fishtail skirt.
