The ultimate 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. Be the chicest one at the office party with some cosy knitwear from the likes of Carven, Brora and GUESS – the latter of which is gunning for best Christmas jumpers territory. News of the Selena Gomez and Coach collection has the entire office firmly in peak hysteria because it’s just beautiful. The suitcase brand du jour that is the jet-setters go-to, Rimowa, makes an appearance as does the super cute jackets by way of Lu Mei. We explored the Harrods Salon de Parfum (we literally wanted to buy it all) and spent several hours on the TAN-LUXE tan line. Plus, see all the best jewellery and accessories out there.
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…
