THE COFFEE TABLE BOOK: Her Majesty The Queen: The Official Platinum Jubilee Pageant Commemorative Album
St James's House is set to release the official commemorative album of the Queen’s forthcoming Platinum Jubilee. Written by Robert Jobson, Katie Nicholl and Tom Parker Bowles, the book will be published in June, but is available to pre-order now. Featuring anecdotes, rarely seen images and stories that celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, this is an essential read – and collector’s item – for any royal fan.
THE HOMEWARE COLLECTION: Sea at MATCHESFASHION
Designed by Monica Paolini and Sean Monahan at their Canal Street workshop in New York, Sea is loved by the fashion set for its modern separates and feminine dresses with a twist. These days the duo are best known for their signature patchwork coats – and now they are expanding into homewares. Available on MATCHESFASHION, the first collection includes pretty cotton patchwork blankets, floral cotton cushions and covetable printed cotton throws.
THE CAMPAIGN: Cara Delevingne X 7 For All Mankind
Premium denim brand 7 For All Mankind has launched its latest collection with a campaign featuring Cara Delevingne. Designed to encapsulate ‘California cool’, the range includes hero pieces like the Logan Stovepipe jean – a straight, high-rise cropped style with distressed hems – and the Tess Trouser, with its perfectly oversized straight-leg fit.
THE BOOK: Burning Questions by Margaret Atwood
From cultural icon Margaret Atwood comes this brilliant collection of essays which seek answers to ‘burning questions’ such as: Why do people everywhere, in all cultures, tell stories? How much of yourself can you give away without evaporating? And what do zombies have to do with authoritarianism? In over 50 pieces, Atwood covers subjects ranging from debt to tech, the climate crisis to freedom – if you ask us, there’s almost no better questioner of the many mysteries of the human universe than her.
THE MUSE: Zoë Kravitz
Ahead of her appearance as Catwoman in the new film The Batman (set to release on 4th March) 31-year-old Zoë Kravitz has stepped out in several standout looks. Whether it was sheer Saint Laurent separates or a black dress and structured capelet by The Row, she’s become the very embodiment of her upcoming role. Our favourite look so far has to be the black Saint Laurent column dress she wore to the London screening – the scalloped, halter-neck and peephole cut-outs cleverly mirrored the shape of her Catwoman mask. Feminine, subtle and seductive, Kravitz kept her accessories to a minimum with a pair of black stud and pearl drop earrings, and black sandals.
THE HOTEL: The Alan
The Alan is a new design-led hotel, bar and restaurant in Manchester with a difference. The six-storey venue champions local makers and uses discarded materials: for example, the striking lobby floor is made from a collage of fragmented marble pieces. While the bedrooms aim to be places of calm, the restaurant and bar spaces inject the fun and energy into the property. Non-guests are welcome from morning until late at night for breakfast, coffee, dinner.
THE EVENT: Swan Lake
Swan Lake returns to the Royal Opera House today – with a fresh look for the 21st century. Retaining the essential elements of the original, Liam Scarlett has created an exciting re-imagining of a classic. With that same magical score from Tchaikovsky, this production is not to be missed.
THE BEAUTY LAUNCH: Not A Collection
Launched back in 2019, Not A Collection is the counterpart to Juliette Has A Gun’s Not A Perfume fragrance line. New for 2022 are a body lotion and home diffuser. In the lotion, the fragrance has been added to a blend of glycerin, capric triglyceride and shea butter to leave skin moisturised and protected, while the diffuser is designed to offer a clean, pure scent at home. Coming with ten wooden reed sticks, it also works well as a decorative object.
THE SHOW: Khaite AW22
Since the brand’s launch in 2016, Khaite’s contemporary take on essentials – think cashmere, leather and denim – has spawned several sold-out, wait-listed and cult fashion hits. By the looks of the AW22 show, there are more on the way. With models in New York walking down the runway to Nirvana’s ‘Where Did You Sleep Last Night?’, leather jackets were the standout pieces – from oversized silhouettes to shearling lapels, we already know what we have our eye on.
THE FILM: Fresh
This new Disney+ comedy thriller stars two of TV’s brightest stars: Daisy Edgar-Jones of Normal People and Sebastian Stan of Pam & Tommy. The film follows Noa, who meets the alluring Steve at a grocery store and – given her frustration with dating apps – takes a chance and gives him her number. After their first date, Noa is smitten and accepts Steve’s invitation to a romantic weekend getaway, only to find that her new lover has been hiding some unusual appetites.
