Blue Hyacinth, Garden Lilies, Leather & Artemisia, Tobacco & Mandarin, Whisky & Cedarwood make up The Bloomsbury collection.
As usual, the house has struck gold with a collection of unique and, quite frankly, exquisite scents. From a potent juice full of lime and whisky to soft and creamy lillies we’re BIG fans.
We’re totally into AllSaints handbags and the Spring Collection has just dropped. With payday around the corner this couldn’t have dropped at a much better time. This obviously gives us enough time to firstly, scope out which one will work with our wardrobe and secondly, to drop a few hints.
Our pick of the collection is the Echo North South Tote in Ash Grey, because quite frankly it goes with everything. (£228 middle)
Fans of minimalist jewellery rejoice the Repossi Antifer En Chute collection has just launched and is available exclusively with Dover Street Market. When it comes to super cool and chic jewels, no one quite does it like Repossi and this latest collection certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Warning: If you haven’t heard of Att Pynta yet, prepare yourself for some serious Interior goals. You might want to keep your wallet at bay as YOU-WILL-WANT-EVERYTHING. (Although, a little something won’t hurt, will it?)
Inject a bit of colour into your wardrobe with these cool pieces from Tatty Devine.
For spring/summer 2017, the first capsule collection to drop for APC is the A.P.C.U.S collection which features a set of jersey staples that have been produced in the U.S.

Vestiaire Collective’s (if you’re not familiar with it, it’s like eBay for fashion-lovers and you need to bookmark it now) annual charity Christmas sale has a new and exciting angle this year. Instead of celebrity closets, the re-sale site has raided the archives of some of the most loved fashion designers.
The Designer Archive Charity Sale gives you a second chance to buy into a piece of fashion history you may have missed out on the first time around from brands including Christopher Kane, Chloé, Kenzo, Temperley and Paul Smith – amongst others.
With proceeds going to worthy charities including Save the Children, Women for Women International and The Royal Marsden, and iconic archival pieces including the Kenzo Mini Kali bag on sale, this a rare and guilt-free opportunity.
‘We wanted to use the Mini Kali as an accessory that represents our arrival at KENZO. A meeting of West Coast ease and Parisian refinement,’ said creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, whose charity of choice is the Blue Marine Foundation.

With everything you could need for a night on the tiles – from dresses and platforms to chic smoking jackets – the line, called ‘Moonlight’, is inspired by nocturnal elegance.
Rihanna and Manolo Blahnik’s brilliant boot collaboration is back for a second season. The second phase is called the Savage collection, and the designs are definitely wild – in a good way. Our favourite is this fluffy little number: The Fallon. It’s an update version of the iconic working man’s boot – originally named ‘Okla’ – which Manolo first designed in 1994. Also available in a coffee colour, we’ve popped this on our fantasy Christmas wishlist.

Re-designed under the creative eye of Marni creative director Carolina Castiglione, you can get your hands on the #StepIntoMARNI collection online from 27th October.
Shit-hot, sustainable fashion label Reformation today opened a pop-up in London. The US label has long served as the ultimate tease, as in Europe we can’t get our hands on their cool, slinky wares unless we’re willing to stump up substantial shipping and import tax fees.
Based in a swanky ‘showroom’ on Monmouth Street, the caveat is that while you can try on the clothes, you can’t take them home then and there. Purchases will arrive to your designated delivery address within a few days, but the good news is shipping and import tax are free.
The showroom will remain open for over a month (until mid-December). And those wanting to get a further fix will be pleased to hear that Net-a-Porter is launching an exclusive Reformation party collection on November 11th, just in time for the festive season.
Frieze may be over, but you can carry a piece of art around everyday thanks to Olympia Le-Tan. The French deisgner has paid homage to British painter David Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Picture’ with this vibrant box clutch.

We love the catwalk-inspired jewellery from the Jean Paul Gaultier for Atelier Swarovski collaboration. Our pick of the range is this chain-detail cuffed earring.
