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’ve been seeking the best ‘in between’ lightweight coats to keep us looking chic as the weather transitions. We’re super-excited about the Red Valentino store that’s coming to London, to whet your appetite why not pre-order one of the gorgeous pieces from the brand’s collaboration with crochet artist London Kaye?
Plus, check out Sophia Webster’s twisted take on her irreverent classics. We recommend you snap up one of her decadent but light-hearted embellished bags, just in time for Halloween.
In fact, fun fashion accessories appear to be a theme this week as famed fashion photographer Ellen Von Unworth lends her playful eye to Happy Socks for a collaboration that will fill many Christmas stockings with fun.
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.
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…
