  • Aarabhi Empire Embellished Dress, £770

Just in time for summer soirées and garden parties, the beloved brand have launched their newest Champagne – Blanc de Blanc Brut Nature. As to be expected from the 1812 label, it’s of the highest quality, made from 100% Chardonnay and in the ‘sans dosage’ style from the best crus of the Côte des Blanc and the Montage de Reims. Crisp, fresh and with slightly fuller citrus notes of grape fruit, the Blanc de Blancs is the perfect drink for summer afternoons and balmy evenings.

  • Byredo The Certified Pilot Sunglasses, £380

    Whether it’s to protect from a scorching sun-in-your-eyes kind of day or just the incessant glare in the city, sunglasses are a must in any wardrobe – and who would’ve thought our new favourite pair would be by the same name behind our favourite perfume? Boutique perfumery Byredo have launched their Solaires collection which have quickly made it into our shopping baskets (along with a second bottle of 1996 for good measure). The genderless frames are modelled after three personas; The Engineer, The Bohemian and The Certified Pilot. We’re looking to the latter to satisfy our Top Gun cravings. The angled, oval-shaped frame features a double nose bridge and large lenses to provide maximum sun protection while also bringing back the classic shape.

  • Benoit Missolin Sissy Hat from Koibird, £220

    It’s official – sun protection is in! With the proof of sun damage known now more than ever before, we’re no longer skimping on the sunscreen (or skipping it altogether) and laying out for hours on end. And while yes we are willing to put up with that white zinc cast in the name of healthy skin, hats off to Benoit Missolin for making sun protection infinitely more chic with this stylish number. The wide-brim, sunshine-ready, floppy design will keep your face shaded and safe from UV rays, while elevating your summer look to a whole new level. Finished with a slim black grosgrain ribbon tied into bows on both sides, it’s a sophisticated but playful take on the classic straw hat and one that’ll top off any summer wardrobe.

  • Seed to Skin The Dew Mist Intense Hydrating Moisture Mist, £62

    In the world of make-up and skincare, it’s safe to say that dewiness is in.

Today the acclaimed skincare brand are releasing three products geared specifically to help you achieve that luminance.

  • Black Onyx and Diamonds Infinity Choker, £4,700 

    Diamonds are a mainstay on any luxury list but for a playful take on the traditional stone that goes further than a pear-cut droplet, look no further than this bold but classic choker from jewellery designer, author and meditation expert, Vanessa Kandiyoti. Bypass the layered look and wear this alone as a statement piece that’ll dress up any outfit.

  • Macdames Rock Inspired Rubber Boots, £70

    If this morning’s sudden downpour was a reminder of anything, it’s that British summer is fickle and flip-flops are not the only shoes you’ll be needing this season. Whether you’re festival bound or not, a trusty pair of rubber boots are always a good idea – all the better if they’re as stylish as these Aigle ones. Boldly urban in metallic rubber and featuring playful rock-inspired details with notched sole, patterned welt and outer reinforcements, these mid-high shoes look like your favourite leather boots, just more durable and mud-proof ( they’re on sale).

    Like a juice detox for your face, Shiseido’s new Reset Cleanser Squad will leave your skin feeling fresh and new – that chocolate feast all but a distant memory.

    Treatment Bag is a new charity set up to offer a little respite to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or those who find themselves beyond treatment. The charity was set up by friends Maymie White (a lymphoma patient herself) and Lisa Dennis (former chemo buddy), inspired by a simple gift of a bag of apples given to Maymie by a cider farmer when she underwent her treatment. With a mission to create a ‘hug in a bag’, the luxurious cloth bags aren’t medical but instead filled with beautiful gifts from beauty brands like Cowshed, Aesop, This Works; cashmere from Franchetti Bond; a scented candle from True Grace and more. Entirely run by volunteers, Treatment Bag have already entered a partnership to supply Healthcare at Home with 25 bags a month for nurses to distribute, with plans to secure distribution throughout the NHS in the future.

  • Enquire about Annabel’s membership at [email protected] or to see Misela’s other designs at misela.com

  • Camilla Asymmetrical Ruffle Dress La Belle, £1,020

    It’s the season of summer soirées, garden gatherings and pool parties, and whether you’re the hostess with the mostest or a guest dressed to impress, another summer dress in your arsenal never hurt anyone. For a slightly different take on the classic floral fancy, this digitally printed silk dress by Camilla combines flowers with textile patterns, hand-placed crystal detailing and a tiered silhouette to shake it up. Flowing with flared sleeves, it’s poetry in motion.

  • Neon Hope Eos Sunglasses in Black, £150

    Our approach to sunglasses is similar to that towards shoes; you can never have too many, and Neon Hope are giving us yet another reason to abide by this belief. Encompassing British design and London attitude, the new eyewear label doesn’t just protect from the sun but is inspired by it, with each style being named after a goddess of the sun. In Eos, circular lenses are coupled with a thin frame and gold accents to give a bold but classic, timeless look. All Neon Hope sunglasses come with a coated brass long chain, and 100% leather case so that when you’re not wearing them they can dangle across your neck, body, handbag strap or even belt safely – no more losing sunglasses at festivals. Neon Hope Eos Sunglasses in Black, £150

  • Ariat Tombstone Boots in Sassy Brown, £170

    Still a favourite of the fashion pack, cowboys boots have made their way out of trend territory and into staple sector. And unlike those satin stilettos you bought as an investment but hardly wear, cowboy boots  are as practical as they are chic. This square-toed deep brown and turquoise pair from Ariat are made to last; leather lined for comfort with a Duatread outsole for toughness, they’ll mould to your feet until it’s a perfect fit. Go full mod-western by pairing them with a fringed jacket and studded mini-skirt, or use them to toughen up a floaty dress.

  • Briggs & Riley Rhapsody Essential Backpack, Plum, £199

    There are some load-bearing situations where a handbag simply won’t do; when a sturdy backpack is instead called for. Liberated from the too-bright patterns of kids’ knapsacks or the boring old sports kitbag, Briggs & Riley have launched the glass slipper of women’s backpacks. Like all products from the global luggage brand, you can expect intuitive design with organisational pockets and dedicated compartments for technology – so you’re not wasting time rummaging for your keys. Debuted in shades of plum, navy and black, the stylish backpacks feature sleek chrome hardware, luxurious leather accents and a slim design that couples function and design.

  • French Sole Hefner Blue Velvet Swan Lake, £250

    Winter is officially a distant memory and we’ve firmly put our boots away in favour of more summer friendly footwear – but as much as we’d like them to be, flip-flops aren’t exactly work-wear appropriate. Ballet flats, however, are tried and true; comfortable, flattering and completely chic (if you’ve found the right pair). French Sole have launched their third collaboration with the English National Ballet, this time inspired by the timeless classic Swan Lake. Sumptuous blue velvet, delicate embroidery, silver leather piping and matching opera slipper heel are reflective of French Sole’s utmost attention to detail, while the whimsical mismatched swans make the pair a playful and unique addition to any shoe closet.

  • Manolo Blahnik Prosa Light Turquoise Satin Fringe Detail Pumps, £725

    Few things say opulence than Manolo Blahnik’s? The shoe of choice for the likes of style aficionados from Carrie Bradshaw to Kate Middleton, the iconic label has long been a stamp of luxury. To celebrate Burlington Arcade’s 200th anniversary, the it-girl label will be paying homage to the British landmark with a newly released, limited-edition style. A classic stiletto silhouette in regency blue satin and finished with an embroidered MB rosette, the shoe is quintessentially British in all the best ways; the perfect addition to any discerning heel collection, and one that’ll garner many a compliment.

  • Perfect Moment Women’s Starlight Leggings Navy, £95

    We’re not going to lie and say that pulling on these leggings will make waking up for your 6am PT session easy, but we can tell you that they’ll definitely put a little extra pep in your step – or rather run. Crafted from a fully opaque stretch fabric with flattering seams and a wide waistband for comfort, they’re high-performance leggings that let you exercise without worrying about bunching, chafing or that pesky VPL… Plus, the stylish star design is the last word in chic active wear. Take them for a spin at one of the best exercise classes in London.

  • Katharine Hamnett Global Green New Deal Now T-Shirt, £25

    It’s World Environment Day and iconic fashion designer Katharine Hamnett is releasing a new slogan tee in celebration. The British designer has long been known to make political statements through her designs, and her new campaign t-shirt ‘GLOBAL GREEN NEW DEAL’ is no exception. The powerful words refer to Katharine’s lobbying for a new legislation that only allow goods into our economic blocs that are made to the same standards outside, as are mandatory inside – meaning that labour laws including health and safety are enforced; there are no underage workers; and workers receive a realistic living wage and have the right to form trade unions. Messages and legislations like this are more pertinent than ever, so get your tee and spread the word.

  • 111Skin Rose Gold Radiance Booster, £85

    From the brand behind Kim Kardashian’s favourite sheet mask, 111Skin expands their glamorous skincare offering with the release of their high-performance serums, including their Rose Gold Radiance Booster.

Plus, the rose gold bottle will be the prettiest product in your medicine cabinet.

The all sustainable brand John Masters Organics have launched their new Honey and Hibiscus Repair Range to cater to all your hair needs this summer. As always we love a quick fix-all and so naturally, their hair mask tops our list. Silicon-free, all organic and suitable for every hair type, the rescue formula restores hydration (not grease), strength and shine to your locks – no matter how many times you’ve bleached it. The mask also provides heat protection so you can get your weekly blow-out without worrying about frizz or breakage.

  • Edelweiss Bespoke Self-Playing Pianos Sold Exclusively at Harrods, POA

    World-renowned piano maker Edelweiss is shaking up the music world with their new collection of rainbow pianos. Sales of acoustic pianos have dwindled from 30,000 in the 1980s to only 4000 today and Edelweiss is hoping that this new, bright and bold style (dubbed a ‘digital piano for the Instagram generation’) will entice more people to the traditional instrument. The Elmer is only one of five colourful (and fully customisable) self-playing pianos recently released by Edelweiss. Of course, despite breaking the mould with its fun exterior, you can expect the same superb craftsmanship of a classic Edelweiss piano. Instrument-cum-art-piece, the self-playing Elmer ushers in a new era of pianos to be enjoyed even if one doesn’t play.

  • ‘The Hours’: Virginia Woolf’s manuscript of Mrs Dalloway

    There are few authors as influential and interesting as Virginia Woolf, and the recent release by SP Books presents a new reason to delve back into the acclaimed author’s writing. Bringing together Woolf’s three handwritten notes in one luxury hand-bound edition of Mrs. Dalloway, you’ll gain new insight into one of her most famous works through the author’s own revisions, crossed out passages and the personal memos scrawled in the margins in her handwriting. Printed to the highest standard using vegetal ink and presented beautifully in a deluxe iron gilded slipcase, the manuscript is a wonderful addition to any discerning reader’s bookshelf.

  • Orelia London Cowrie Shell Huggie Hoop Earrings, £22

    Call us nostalgic but suddenly the shell adorned jewellery of our teenage years have found their way back into our jewellery boxes – including this dainty pair of earrings from Orelia London. Fusing two key trends this season (shells and huggie hoops, of course), these earrings are going to be your go-to for this summer. While they’ll look good worn with absolutely anything, for best results pair with salty hair, sun kissed skin and bare feet.

  • Pour Les Femmes Silk Night Dress in Pale Pink, £360

    Nothing says easy luxury like a silk slip, and while this one from Pour Les Femmes is labelled a night-dress we’re tempted to take it out of the bedroom and into every major event we have planned this season. The 100% silk slip is deliciously soft against (possibly sunburnt) skin, easy to wear and sublimely flattering with a v-neck which is mirrored at its back with a similar deep v. Plus unlike white shades, the light pink colour suits at whatever point of summer you’re at, whether that’s pale beginnings or deep tan ends. Founded by actress Robin Wright and designer Karen Fowler, Pour Les Femmes was founded with the aim of creating economic opportunity for women in conflict regions around the globe.

  • A Midsommer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, abridged and presented in block print by D.N.S.Sante Fe: Pictograph Press, 1953, £3,750

    A perfect gift for anyone and whatever occasion (including a present from you to you for getting through a particularly long winter), a rare book from Peter Harrington is an investment to last a lifetime. Celebrating literature that crosses national and linguistic borders, among its illustrious offerings you’ll find the first printed edition of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey for a cool £250,000, as well as a rare first French edition of Frankenstein – and second edition ever published – by Mary Shelley. Particularly covetable is this incredible edition of A Midsommer Night’s Dream, abridged and presented in block print featuring numerous woodcuts throughout; a beautiful addition to any library.

  • WANDLER Luna Bag in Inca Python, £570

    If you haven’t heard of WANDLER yet, you will soon. Known for bold colours, eye-catching prints and fun silhouettes, it’s the label to know this summer – and this incredible python pattern embossed bag is a favourite in their covetable collection. Made from Italian calf leather with a colour coated interior that demonstrates the brand’s immaculate attention to detail, a satisfyingly roomy design, the bag is a practical alternative to the itsy bitsy micro-bag dominating the runways this season – but of course, still very chic. You’ll be turning heads (and receiving compliments) when you’re toting this arm candy.

  • Lisou Victoire Silk Unisex Shirt, £250

    Puff sleeves are everywhere, featuring on every shopping gallery and walking down every runway. For those of us a little wary of this larger-than-life style, the ones on this Lisou blouse are a happy medium. A charming love heart pattern printed on 100% silk, the bold look is a no-brainer for easy breezy summer fashion – and one that’s work appropriate too.

  • Madeline Thompson Rimini Striped Cardigan, £380

    The sun may be shining now but don’t be fooled into complacency, this is the UK after all and an unexpected cold chill is always around the corner. So a cardigan on hand (or in bag) is a necessity, and a gorgeous one is an added bonus. Bold and cheery, this Madeline Thompson number will brighten up any sudden cases of overcast weather, made from dreamily soft cashmere in a relaxed longline silhouette, you won’t mind having to slip it on. Wear over a tee and jeans or midi-dress for an extra layer of warmth and style.

    A trend turned staple, the bucket bag is a mainstay in any modern woman’s wardrobe and this soft leather ruby number from Lipault is the one to own. Stylish and practical with a removable shoulder strap, the Lipault Bucket Bag is a TARDIS of sorts, able to fit much more than you’d think just from looking at it. Plus, while it’s true we love all things black, we’ve made a resolution to stay away from the play-it-safe colour and this bag’s deep red is a happy medium between bold and classic.

  • Gourma Elephant Cufflinks for TUSK, £220 

    Dads are notoriously tricky to shop for and with Father’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to dig deep and find that perfect gift. Luckily Royal Warrant Holders, Grant Macdonald Silversmiths have launched their new collection of animal cufflinks perfect for the (and any other) occasion. Classic but not boring, the new collection features Luangwa lions, Kunene rhinos and Gourma elephants, all crafted from the finest solid sterling silver that will last generations. Incredibly detailed, these miniature masterpieces will be a wonderful addition to any father’s collection. Even more attractive than the cufflink’s intricate designs is their support of the TUSK charity who initiate and fund conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa; 20% from each sale goes directly towards TUSK.

  • Niquesa Amore Dalia Large Pendant Tsavorite, £7,900

    If you’ve been lucky enough to snag one of the very covetable tickets to the upcoming Chelsea Flower Show – or if you just like stunning necklaces – look no further than Niquesa for fine jewellery that’ll wow your friends (as well as passing strangers). Take inspiration from the blooming flowers of spring and opt for a subtle floral design like Nisquesa’s Dalia Tsavorite Pendant. Crafted from 18kt yellow gold and set with marquise cut tsavorite gemstones and brilliant cut diamonds, you’ll be stealing thunder from the real flowers.

Beautiful blouson-sleeves, a loose silhouette and ruffled hem make it the perfect option for warm nights and glamorous summer escapades.

  • Porta Romana Blob Lamp in Fawn, POA

    While the arrival of sunshine normally ushers in a bout of spring cleaning, looking through Porta Romana’s products makes us want to accumulate rather than winnow down – starting with this aptly named Blob Lamp. Equal parts fun and sophisticated, classic meets contemporary in the unique silhouette, minimalist colour palette and quirky finishing touches of this covetable piece. Pair with a natural linen gathered shade for a lamp that’ll garner much admiration.

Pair with a kaftan and sliders for an easy breezy summer look that’ll take you from the beach to rooftop aperitifs.

  • HERD Tote Bag ‘The Eye’ Large, £14

    Bold, colourful and hardy, this big tote from HERD is the ideal bag to take you from the gym to the grocery store to the beach to the sports field and beyond. Whatever the occasion, it has you covered (and if you don’t end up needing it, just fold it up and put it away). Unlike other plastic totes where house-keys and coins seem to disappear into a blackhole, the zipped pocket keeps all your bits and bobs secure and within reach. Carried in hand or slung over the shoulder, the bags are a comfortable (and sustainable) change from single-use plastic bags – and won’t break on you! With a bright modernist design, minimum of 30% recycled material, double 100% cotton handles and a sturdy, wipe-clean surface, it’s a winner on all counts.
