The ultimate weekend wish list.
What better time is there to explore all the latest stylish launches and new happenings than at the weekend?
So, without further adieu allow us to introduce: hot list. Whether it’s some much-needed pampering, a quick interiors update or a wardrobe refresh, weekends are all about indulging in some ‘me-time’.
Here at Marie Claire HQ we’re constantly seeking out secret sales, new brands, exclusive beauty treatments and cool coffee table books. We also love updating our home with a cool new piece of pottery, art or a delicious new candle.
We’ve rounded-up all the coolest things to do, see and buy this week. There are new store openings, new fashion brands, A-list collaborations, grooming updates and generally gorgeous and useful things to know so that your downtime is as stylish as you.
This week, we see treats from several of the best brands out there. Jo Malone who have added an exfoliating body scrub which polishes and cleanses the skin (it comes in the classic Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegrante Noir and Geranium Walnut plus the suitcase brand that everyone is talking about, Away Luggage has amassed a celebrity following that includes Jessica Alba and Emily Ratajkowski to name but a few. Diesel’s launches their Denim Lab and the fashion brand MCM has dropped their first set of fragrances which are just to-die-for.
We’ve also stumbled across some dreamy dresses. One comes with a strong ethical message, and the other is the perfect office-to-party piece. And the perfect fragrance from Frederic Malle, the grand master of the fragrance world.
This is your ultimate weekend shopping list so please do check in with us every Friday so that you can hit the shops fully informed on what’s new and cool each week. Click through to see our favourite picks for the Hot List this week…

We recently road tested a Kronaby watch and boy, did it go down well. There were hundreds (yes, we counted) of compliments on it’s appearance – how could something so beautiful be tech-y?
Anyway, we love it. And, because it just keeps getting better, Kronaby has launched a new function that enables you to get more out of your apps and devices. Meet IFTTT (If this then that) which turns your watch into a trigger that can do anything (app willing) from turning your lights on or sorting our your heating.
Wearable tech, turns out, we’re quite into it.

Introducing the Schiaparelli Golden Palm jacket, inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli’s childhood at Rome’s Palazzo Corsini and the exotic village of Hammamet. The intricate golden palm tree embroidery was developed with Lesage.
The original Schiaparelli black wool jacket became one of the best sellers of the 1936 winter collection. Marlene Dietrich ordered one while illustrator Francis Marshall sketched Elsa Schiaparelli wearing her own jacket (that currently resides at the Philadelphia Museum of Art).
Today, design director Bertrand Guyon gives it a contemporary take. The atelier completely re-tailored its volume while its original motif – once again embroidered by Lesage – remains intact. Photographed on actress Melissa George, the limited edition shows the timeless allure of this sunny ivory version, from day to night.
Available exclusively by private order from the Schiaparelli boutique-salons, 21 place Vendôme in Paris

In the summer of 2013, Christian took this ideology to new heights with the introduction of his Nudes collection, a capsule of classic styles available in a then unheard of five shades of nude. The concept behind the collection was simple: offer women of all skin tones a shoe to match. In turn, the shoe would highlight her natural figure by granting the illusion of elongated legs.
For his Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, Christian Louboutin continues the story by introducing two compelling new styles: the Christeriva and the Cherrysandal.
