Rabanne Beauty

For nearly six decades, Rabanne has been known for its avant-garde fashion and fragrances. Now the fashion house is continuing its legacy by launching beauty. Its uncompromisingly high-performance formulas are combined with maximum colour pay-off and skin-loving ingredients – all inspired by fashion fabrics, unexpected sparkle, matte, gloss and metal finishes which take their cue from the house. Each formula is vegan and comes under one of four categories: Eyephoria is all about expressive eyes, Rouge Rabanne is a collection of signature Paris lip shades, Nudes is all about creating a fresh complexion and Arts Factory is all about having fun with make-up through colour and sparkle.




This new production of Hamnet had a sell-out run at the RSC, breaking box office records at the Swan Theatre, and opens to the biggest box office advance in the Garrick Theatre’s history later this month. Set in Warwickshire, 1582, Agnes Hathaway, a natural healer, meets the Latin tutor William Shakespeare. Drawn together by powerful but hidden impulses, they create a life together and start a family. As William moves to London to discover his place in the world of theatre, Agnes stays at home to raise their three children. When the plague steals 11-year-old Hamnet, they must each confront their loss alone. And yet, out of the greatest suffering, something of extraordinary wonder is born.




Launched at the end of last month, Daphine’s AW23 collection is channelling the ethereal glamour of ‘70s bohemia – think Stevie Nicks and co. The tiger eye stone – the focal point of the new collection – echoes that retro feel and sets off the brand’s signature golden styles perfectly. The chunky ribbed hoops, seashell-inspired earrings and gemstone cocktail rings all make for beautiful gifts, too.



Gabrielle Chanel: Fashion Manifesto

This is the first exhibition in the UK dedicated to the work of French couturière Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel. The V&A’s new show will chart the evolution of her iconic design style and the establishment of the House of Chanel, from the opening of her first millinery boutique in Paris in 1910 to the showing of her final collection in 1971. Featuring over 180 looks, seen together for the first time, as well as jewellery, accessories, make-up and fragrance, the exhibition will explore Chanel’s pioneering approach to fashion, which paved the way for a new feminine elegance and continues to influence the way women dress today.



Mandarin Oriental Costa Navarino

Mandarin Oriental Costa Navarino is the luxury hotel group’s first resort in Greece. The beachfront retreat is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Peloponnese, with views of the surrounding countryside and sea. With 99 elegant, light-filled suites and earth-sheltered villas with private pools and spacious terraces, five restaurant and bars, the hotel is one of the most exciting openings for 2023. The spa at will offer a rejuvenating sanctuary of wellbeing and beauty treatments inspired by the group’s traditional rituals from the Far East and the flora of Greece.



Buchanan Studio

Looking to update your home? Buchanan Studio has created 16 new iterations of its much-loved fabrics. All new fabrics are 100% Belgian linen and printed in England and the expansion includes additional colours to its globally recognised ‘Studio Stripe’ which was launched on its Studio Chair in 2021. Its ‘Ticking Rose’ fabric, a collaboration with Angus Buchannan’s sister, designer Violet Dent, also welcomes new colours, as well as a ‘reversed’ Ticking Rose design. Finally, ‘Stripe Two’, a mixed-width stripe inspired by traditional French mattress stripes, arrives in five fresh colourways named Provence, Normandy, Bordeaux, Antibes and Paris.

Paris Texas

Paris Texas launches always catch our attention and, as the change seasons, its new winter boots are high on our wish list. The brand has revealed an editorial series – Through Her Lens – featuring cool women to watch. Filmmaker, artist, photographer and all-around powerhouse Nadia Lee kicks off the first instalment, sporting the brand’s new collection in an LA shoot. Naturally, the killer stiletto boots take centre stage – all of which are now available in new shades and finishes. 



New Notes

New Notes is a new generation of perfumes that aims to break down the codes of perfumery and boundaries of role and gender. Of the collection, we’re big fans of Cocktail Marakuja, an exotic and stimulating scent that ‘leaves the vibrant mood of a party and aperitivos with friends’ on the skin. Expect top notes of passion fruit, pear and lemon, heart notes of jasmine, rose, cardamom, pink pepper and ginger and base notes of amber, white musk, patchouli and cedarwood. Don’t know where to start? Check out its starter pack, which contains seven of its scents.



Claridge’s Restaurant

After a summer soft launch, Claridge’s Restaurant will officially open its art deco doors onto Davies Street this month, as it embarks on a new era and comes fully in house. The contemporary British restaurant sees chef Coalin Finn head up the kitchen and some of the dishes he’s devised – such as the whole grilled native lobster – have already become Insta hits. Like some of the hotel group’s other spaces, the restaurant has been designed by Bryan O’Sullivan Studio and pays homage to the hotel’s art deco design, with a contemporary colour palette complemented with Calcutta Viola marble and antique brass.



Alex Eagle Sporting Club At MATCHES

This September sees the launch of the fashion crew’s favourite sportswear brand, Alex Eagle Sporting Club, at MATCHES. Born out of a desire for refined, classic wardrobe staples, the collection spans a range of sporty silhouettes in classic fits – just what you need to add a relaxed, cool edge to your new-season wardrobe. The edit will include hero styles such as the cult embroidered baseball caps, the Richmond puffer jacket, the Berwick crew neck jumper and cool joggers.
