Some cool stuff to know (and shop) this week, as picked by team Marie Claire.
Zimmerman is not a new brand, nor is it doing anything particularly ground breaking. What it is doing? Solving all your swimwear dilemmas with their achingly cool bikini offering. Cool cutouts, figure-flattering brief cuts, bandeau tops and statement prints come together to create some of the coolest bikinis we’ve seen this summer season. That’s our holiday wardrobe sorted, then?

Anthropologie AW15 Home Collection
Anthropologie has released their latest Home collection, and it’s safe to say, this is their best offering ever. At first glance, the sleek new-season home accessories and directional furniture designs could be mistaken for something far more expensive, in reality, the stunning new range can be all yours in no time at all. Need a new tasseled arm chair? Want to inject a shot of Scandi-style into your living room? Looking for a standout painted lamp? There are plenty of ultra-stylish solutions among this beautiful new collection.

Nars Liquid Gold
Nars has announced a new trio set to transform your skin tone. The Gold Face Set includes a Gold Digger Larger Than Life lip gloss, to ensure a perfectly glossy pout. A Hot Sand Illiminator, for a subtle, radiant glow. And lastly, the South Beach Multiple, which is essentially a do-it-all stick to use on lips, cheeks and eyes. The set is due to hit stores in September, and in the meantime, all those dedicated beauty lovers can get a taste of the action and snap-up the Hot Sand Illuminator now.

We may still be in the depths of summer, and only just taken in all that’s new for AW15 last week, but for all those true Whistles devotees, here is another collection to tempt you. It may not be dropping into stores for a few weeks yet, but we couldn’t resist a sneak peek at the new, and oh-so-stylish Resort collection. Expect to see pinafore dresses, pretty prints, cool khaki seperates and lashings of leather. Bank cards at the ready…
We’ve long been fans of Aurélie Bidermann, and just when we thought their unique jewellery offerings couldn’t get any better, we spotted these cool woven cuffs. Naturally, all four new styles have shot to the top of our wish list. Coming in a selection of standout shades, these gold-plated cotton cuffs are all kinds of chic, and will no doubt brighten up even the simplest of outfits. Go for just the one to add a splash of colour to your everyday look, or wear all four styles stacked up high for maximum impact.
Olivia Von Halle Pyjamas
Those who appreciate the power of a great pair of pyjamas might want to spare a moment to peruse the new Olivia Von Halle Buckingham collection. The queen of luxury sleep wear, Olivia Von Halle has found new ways to tempt us to up our pyjama game with oversized silk shirts, sleek camisoles, printed classic sets and quite possibly, the poshest (and softest) silks we’ve ever known. Bed time will never be the same again…
If there’s one thing our beauty team do best, it’s spotting a must-have make-up buy. And this week, it’s all about Urban Decay. Your one-way ticket to an A-List-worthy smoky eye, Urban Decay has launched a new palette that has all your shadow dilemmas, covered. Choose from the 12 subtle shades, including everyday neutrals, subtle bronze shades for a summer-ready shimmer and of course, some smoky-eye essential, matte black. Beauty desk approved, we reckon this is well worth a look.
