H.O.H

House of Holland can be counted upon to create a stir with a well-placed slogan every now and then. Can anyone forget the inimitable neon nu-rave style shirts emblazoned with banterous messages directed to the fashion world elite? (I’ll Show You Who’s Boss Kate Moss…) The new collection doesn’t  fail to deliver, with simple black and white designs sporting twitter-esque abbrieviations that, if you follow the man himself on twitter, you will surely recognise – H.M.L (Hate My Life, one surely for those terrible winter Mondays), N.A.L.G.O (Not A Lot Going On), and I.Y.F (In Your Face, for when you […]

While the saunas and steam rooms ease aching muscles, there are plenty of alternative hideaways simply for absolute quiet and relaxation, or the cozy lounge for reading with roaring fires, […]

The crème de la crème

My dry, dull, sensitive skin was crying out for an SOS.  I needed to act fast – no one gets very far with a face like that. So where to start? I looked under the ultimate umbrella of luxury treatments at Urban Retreat Harrods, confident that something there could save my skin. I wasn’t disappointed. After discussing my concerns with the extremely knowledgeable staff, it seemed that I really was in need of a ‘miracle’, in the form of the famous ‘Crème de la Mer’ facial. My therapist, Nancy, came to my rescue and the facial was a truly luxurious experience. […]

Dance-Off

Mahiki, Boujis, Whisky Mist and Movida have held sway in this town for far too long. However, there’s currently a whole new wave of clubland impresarios just waiting in the wings. It started with new kid on the block, Merah, quietly building a name for itself since the end of 2009 – it recently hosted Jay-Z’s BRITS aftershow party where guest included JLS, The Sugababes and Alexandra Burke. And now more new blood is on the horizon with Ross Sanders’ DIU on Greek Street and Roger Payne’s Shaka Zulu, beneath Camden’s Pan-Asian restaurant Gilgamesh, opening this spring. DIU will be […]

Erbaorganics

At last a beauty range for mothers-to-be.  The purer than pure creation by Californian brand Erborganics uses only natural and organic ingredients.  Motivated by a concern about chemicals in skin products, husband and wife team, Robin Broan and Anna Cirronis, dreamt up a blend of organic and eco friendly ingredients that could be used on both mother and baby, forming the brand Erbaorganics. There’s no wonder that even the non pregnant have leapt on this band-wagon as well.  With revitalizing body oils and bath products, each one is filled with either moisturizing aloe, relaxing lavender, healing Echinacea or soothing chamomile, […]
