Fancy a dirty weekend?

As the nights grow longer and colder, Babington House and Cowshed have come up with a pretty cool offer whereby you can rediscover your decadent side and invite a loved one for a cosy night of indulgence in Somerset.  When you purchase an indulgent Spoilt Cow room candle from Babington Cowshed, you’ll find your invitation for one night’s stay at Babington House tucked inside.

PPQ for Baroque

We’ve already brought you news of the opening of Baroque the other week but we reckon the new staff uniforms deserve a mention in their own right. They’ve been designed by PPQ’s Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker – whose creations are favoured by celebs from Alexa Chung to Rihanna. For the girls it’s smouldering glamour with super smart tailoring in velvets, satins and lurexes: “I wanted to make them feel chic and alluring, but at all times professional and demure. The door girls have fox lamb fur trimmed felt wool capes and coats that are film noir in the making,” […]

Gin and Jazz

The Intercontinental LondonPark Lane, is iconic for all the obvious reasons. It's no wonder it's long been one of London's most important and admires places to stay. But aside from luxury, its excellent CookBook cafe and Theo Randall restaurants, its monthly Gin & Jazz nights, which pay homage to the classic cocktials of the Jazz Age, are causing quite a storm. This November, in fact, it celebrates its first birthday, so it's really time you go and experience one of these evenings, if you haven't already.

Lanvin Bubblegum

Ok so Alber Elbaz hasn’t quite joined forces with Hubba Bubba but he HAS collaborated with Ladurée Macarons to design the most gorgeous box for the Parisian confectionary marque’s new bubblegum flavoured treats. They say that a delectable air of childhood surrounds those with a soft spot for sweets and never a truer word could be said of the Lanvin creative director. It is this whimsical spirit that inspired his sketched faces of the long-lashed lovelies decorating the Ladurée packaging– all accessorised to the max of course. A bright red pop of grosgrain ribbon adds a final touch of style […]

The art of Swatch

If you’re gearing up for Frieze’s annual art fest next month you can get ahead of the curve and buy into the new Swatch & Art collaboration launching this week. The latest designs draw inspiration from the world of tattoo art in collaboration with French tattoo artists Tin Tin and Emmanuelle Antille. And if you’re curious as to their fashion pedigree, they have inked Jean-Paul Gaultier. You get the picture. But you won’t find any naughty Damien Hirst-esque butterflies here. Rather black and white printed dragons, multi-coloured snakes and these blue and black prints more reminiscent of delicate china than […]
