Halpern’s first exclusive capsule collection has landed at Browns and it’s everything you could possibly need for a night out, and more. The aptly named ‘Night Out’ collection features flared trousers, bustier tops and all the sequins. We heart.
Jo Malone’s new limited edition collection, English Fields, is as addictive as the last. The ‘harvest’ of five scents captures memories of summers in the countryside. Our favourites? Primrose & Rye (basically summer in a bottle thanks to golden corn, mimosa, rye and vanilla notes), and Green Wheat & Meadowsweet (a crisp summer morning, with zesty notes of grapefruit).
Say hello to the designer’s new sneaker, a super-light, futuristic style designed to be like a second skin.
The Warehouse Barbican collection, inspired by the brickwork and conservatory plants of the iconic venue, features botanical prints and granite designs.

Head to the newly opened Lady Abercorn’s kitchen, at London Liverpool Street’s Andaz hotel, for a contemporary house full of intrigue, homemade brew and more importantly, roasts with bottomless Yorkshire puddings, available weekdays with a different dish served each day. Yum.
Just in time for Valentine’s day, Dr Martens launches the Wild at Heart collection.
The classic brogue style is updated. I mean, we just adore the heart shaped leopard print.
A 20-minute styling appointment for £20 sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Chop Chop London does exactly that; offering a set range of hairstyles for express trims, styling and braiding. Located at Old Street Station, you’d be mad not to pop down for a quick hair zhush.
Shot by Karim Sadli, Saskia de Brauw is the star of the new SS18 Cos campaign. The shapes, colours and construction of this collection feel refreshing but still true to the core DNA of Cos, which we all love. The only question is…when can we get our hands on it?
We’re seriously into the spring/summer 2018 Debenhams lingerie campaign, fronted by Joann Van Den Herik (. And, with prices from £6, it doesn’t really get much better tbh.
Our new favourite brand, Votary, has added a cream to their already impressive roster of super seed face oils and lotions. Packed full of 21 super ingredients this wonder cream is the answer to healthy looking skin. Plus, its mattifying properties make it the perfect primer. We love.
We’re loving these pyjama style cropped trousers, just one of the latest drops at & Other Stories.

This year the House of Sonia Rykiel turns 50 and celebrates their Anniversary with the launch of a dedicated capsule collection, Manifesto. Designed by Julie de Libran, this light-hearted and cool collection plays with words and stylistic phrases.To reflect this, an installation at Liberty has been put up while the Sonia Rykiel London Brook Street store will host a mural depicting an artfully disheveled bookshelf where passersby are invited to fill in the blanks of their favourite books.
Soru’s new Pearl Loop Earring style are the only pearl earrings you need this season. The brand is also a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Great skin starts with clean skin, and Origins’ new cleansing makeup removing jelly is just what you need. Canadian willowherb and sunflower oil gently melt makeup and grime without stripping skin of moisture. Add water and the jelly transforms into a cleansing milk, leaving skin feeling refreshed.
We’re in love (sorry) with Dune’s new bridal collection, featuring satin pumps and shimmering designs.
I don’t know about you, but the weather is really stressing out my skin. Luckily, Kiehl’s has just launched a sheet mask – it’s their first sheet mask btw. It’s formulated with three Amazonian oils, which inject a super dose of hydration into the skin. I love it.
Bag lovers, prepare to fall in love. Meet the new signature bag from Salvatore Ferragamo, the Sofia Rainbow.
When we’re on the hunt for some trainers, we always head to Size? first. The latest Flyknits to drop are pretty cool. Our pick of the bunch is the Zoom Mariah Racer Flyknit (Yeah, Mariah…we’re into it) which is a streamlined version of the original.
Super stylish, in classic DM burgundy, oh, and it’s vegan. We’re into it.
For some people, a visit to the dentist is something to be feared, for others (read:me), it’s a visit to the hairdressers. Why? It’s probably down to a childhood trauma involving an unwarranted micro fringe (before they got cool) hacked out of waist-length hair, a fear that has stayed with me ’til adulthood. For those scissors, and the person wielding them hold SO MUCH POWER. Step forward Blade Hairclub in Soho, surely the nicest, most considerate hairdressers in the capital. The team in this buzzy Soho institution implicitly understand the importance of how your hair makes you feel, and will go to great lengths to make you feel at ease with what you are getting – and yes, an inch in Blade Soho actually means an inch. Incase you need some more courage before going in for the chop, their bespoke cocktail menu and prerogative or bringing a BFF along for company will see you right. Yes, welcome to Hairclubbing…

So, some good news. Barbour has just dropped a lightweight wax collection, and we’re totally here for it. The whole range has been created with a new blend of waxes and oil, so expect something lightweight.
I mean, just look at that sparkly K. Who wouldn’t want a pair?
