Santa’s Official Post Office in Rovaniemi, Finland, is expected to receive over 30,000 letters daily from children and adults around the world this year. In a bid to attract novice elves, Santa Claus’ Cabin has been listed on Airbnb for guests - free of charge - to roll up their sleeves, lend a hand with the backlog of letters and experience the joy of the holiday season from the Arctic Circle.
The he Dolce & Gabbana Flower Power collection is inspired by the spirit of the 60s, featuring bright roses, delicate anemones and wild bouquets, adorning everything from stretch satin sheath dresses to full-length gowns, creating volume through printed silk chiffon.
I am obsessed with Studio Nicholson—the proportions are neat and everything is tailored to perfection. So, when I heard about the new collaboration with Zara, I knew it was going to be one for the wish list. it’s the second time the pair have worked together, this time with the inclusion of womenswear and homeware and the result is a collection full of wardrobe classics with a modern feel, streamlined silhouettes and easy-to-wear pieces.
Thanks to Dior, we’ve found the most perfect pair of cowboy boots. We’re lusting over these two-toned boots with contrasting insert detailing from the Dior cruise 2024 collection. One for the Christmas list, perhaps.
There’s no two ways about it—Erdem is one of the most talented designers on this planet. For show-stopping, breathtakingly gorgeous gowns, we will always head to Erdem and this year’s holiday collection full of embellishments, sequins and drama is the stuff of dreams.
We’re big fans of Sophia Webster at MCUK—ever since the Chiara shoes first futtered into our lives, we were hooked. Her feminine, bold and playful designs are instantly recognisable and much loved by the fashion world and celebs too (everyone from Beyoncé to Michelle Obama has worn them). Webster has just released a book that charts her brand's evolution. Filled with beautiful illustrations, photography and personal recollections, the book takes us on a journey through fashion.
Taller Marmo is our go-to for super chic occasion wear and they’ve just made shopping even easier. From colour-blocking kaftans to fringed two pieces—this is the modern take on partywear. Shop head-turning outfits including online exclusives on their new digital platform.
If you’re in London this weekend, make sure you head to Mayfair and check out Wild at Heart’s flagship store on Weighhouse Street. Set over three floors, the store is a mixture of retail spaces and workshop areas featuring a curated edit of brands close to the world of Wild at Heart. And, that’s not all, founder Nikki Tibbles says, “There will be lots of classes, where you can learn something new - painting or drawing flowers, learning more about British growers, book launches about gardens and landscaping, candle making and so much more!”
We’re adding the Victoria Beckham x Mytheresa exclusive capsule collection, which features 21 pieces that embody timeless elegance and modern sophistication to our must-have list.
If you’re after some, simple to understand, advice on skincare, head to Renude the home of AI data-driven skincare information. For a fee (£20 every three months), you’ll have access to a service that provides 1-1 skincare consultations.
No lie, we’ll be sporting these at the next function. Namely, the next Mums The Rave event at The 02 on December 10th. Hosted by DJ Nikki Beatnik, this all-day party includes music, a panel with some special guests and even a special performance by Terri Walker. Sounds like the perfect event tbh.
The Art of Loves pop-up is open until Sunday 19th November on the South Bank, next to the iconic Tower Bridge. Shaped like a huge Pandora bracelet box, it features five bespoke art installations.
Customers and tourists can create their own digital piece of art, which will be showcased on external screens which will sit around the exterior of the activation, transforming the pop up into an outdoor art gallery. Guests can also print their artwork as wrapping paper for a personalised gift for a loved one.
