Khaite X Oliver Peoples

Khaite has teamed up with Oliver Peoples to create a new line of sunglasses in five different colours. Standout features include distinctive temple details and an innovative double-embedding technique, inspired by Khaite's handbag hardware. From timeless classics like black and tortoiseshell to bolder optic white, crystalline and vibrant glossy red, this high-profile collaboration is definitely one to watch. 



The Gourmand’s Lemon

Following the success of The Gourmand’s Egg tome, the team’s second volume with Taschen celebrates the versatility and complexity of the king of citrus. A favourite subject of art history’s giants, the lemon captivates in the still lifes of Old Masters and inspired the breakthroughs of modern visionaries like Picasso, Matisse and Warhol. Accompanying these lemon anecdotes are a foreword by chef and acclaimed food writer Simon Hopkinson and an introduction by art critic and author Jennifer Higgie alongside more than 60 lemon-infused recipes across global cuisines for every occasion – including sauces, cocktails and puds – all with photography by Bobby Doherty. 




Reformation is making strides towards sustainability with its latest swimwear line, which is crafted from renewable, plant-based materials. Using leftover fabric and incorporating non-synthetic, renewable, and bio-based fibres, it's managed to reduce the carbon footprint associated with its production process. Full of vintage-inspired silhouettes, the collection includes both one-piece and two-piece options in timeless colours, as well as signature prints.



The Emory

It’s a big month for Maybourne, the group behind Claridge’s, The Connaught and The Berkeley. First up, its fourth London hotel, The Emory, will launch mid-April. Designed by the late Richard Rogers, The Emory will be London’s first all-suite hotel. Within, you’ll find abc kitchens, the new restaurant by revered French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Vongerichten’s original abc kitchen has been a fixture of New York’s dining scene since 2010. The menu at the London outpost will include some New York signatures: think crab toast with green chilli, dill and lemon aioli; crispy fish tacos served with aioli and cabbage-apple slaw; and char-grilled beef tenderloin with chimichurri and lime. Then there’s SURRENNE, a next-generation wellbeing members’ club in Knightsbridge. A global first, there will be a Longevity Clinic in partnership with tech pioneers Virtusan and a cast of best-in-class wellbeing experts, including the first Tracy Anderson studio in the UK. Guests of The Berkeley and The Emory will receive complimentary access to SURRENNE as part of their stay.



The Legacy Collection

Legendary perfume curator Frédéric Malle has given five of Estée Lauder’s most iconic fragrances a 2024 makeover. Reimagined for the 21st century, Mrs Lauder’s classic perfumes that have been reimagined for the Legacy Collection include Azurée Legacy, with new notes of cumin; Private Collection Legacy, a reimagined version of the classic scent that allows the floral green notes of the original to shine; White Linen Legacy, a warm, lush fragrance with the richness of the original scent; Estée Legacy, a floral musk with notes of sandalwood, honey and jasmine; and Knowing Legacy, a rich, fruity scent expanded from the original with notes of black currant and orris.





From the team behind Kin House – last year’s hottest party pad – comes Limekiln, a new private-hire venue in Sussex. Opening this month, the venue can host everything from private lunches, weddings, and wild parties to team away days and creative showcases. Set against a backdrop of Sussex countryside, Limekiln is surrounded by 60 acres of private, renaturalised land including a nine-hole golf course and ancient woodland, from which the lodge takes its name. Standout spaces include Kiln Bar, a large central lounge with a showstopping floor-to-ceiling fireplace clad in individually hand painted tiles by Emma Louise Payne, antique furniture, Ceraudo armchairs and Nicola Harding sofas.



Westman Atelier Lip Suede Matte Lipstick

Westman Atelier has a fresh launch – its collection of Lip Suede Matte Lipsticks. A matte formula with a smooth, airy feel and bold vivid pigment, the result is super saturated colour and super clean lines. Peptides and antioxidant-rich blend of vitamins C and E plump and smooth, while its Hydro Suede Technology featuring hyaluronic acid and kaolin clay lock in moisture. Each one comes in sleek, refillable packaging with a magnetic mirrored cap for on-the-go application.




Tom Ripley needs no introduction. A grifter scraping by in early 1960s New York, Patricia Highsmith’s fictional Tom is hired by a wealthy man to travel to Italy to try to convince his vagabond son to return home. Tom's acceptance of the job is the first step into a complex life of deceit, fraud and murder. In this version – beginning on Netflix tomorrow – Andrew Scott plays Tom Ripley, Dakota Fanning plays Marge Sherwood and Johnny Flynn plays Dickie Greenleaf. Maurizio Lombardi, Margherita Buy, John Malkovich, Kenneth Lonergan and Ann Cusack also star.
