Eight Moorgate

We’re tired of scary members clubs with draconian committees and MI6 style questionnaires – come on guys, is it really necessary to submit us to the ignominy of writing something ‘interesting’ about ourselves (a question guaranteeing writers’ block in anyone but a complete narcissist) and automatically blackballing anyone with the temerity to be born with Mercury in a retrograde phase. Brand new members club Eight Moorgate only requires an £800 joining fee (plus £77 monthly levy) making it cheaper than a gym, infinitely more serviceable and with no compulsion to wear lycra unless of course you’re than way inclined!

New Kids on the Block

The Council of Fashion Designers of America has opened its doors to a new class of influential designers who, as a collective, embody all that is new and exciting across the fashion world. And it has clearly been an exceptional year, with the intake final count at 31, as opposed to the more typical 20 of previous years. The change is attributed to the current President Diane von Furstenburg who has made inclusiveness her priority in her two years at the top. CFDA executive director Steven Kolb said, “She always refers to the CFDA as her extended family”. So who […]

The Permanent Blowdry

Brazil has been hiding the Holy Grail for a number of years but at last it’s been brought to London. The permanent blow dry has become the secret whispered amongst distressed girls with damaged and coloured hair. Finally, you can ditch your hairdryers, tongs, straightners and practically even brushes. Harvey Nichols’ 4th floor Daniel Hersheson salon, is one of the handful of salons that have kept their ear to the ground for breaking news hair products and they’ve definitely surpassed any competitors with this one. The hairdresser evenly applies the Brazilian keratin treatment to the whole head and then dries […]

Small is beautiful

When it comes to shopping, we’d be positively undressed without our favourite boutique stocking impossible to come by niche designers and providing a oasis of calm amidst the horrors of the high street. We don’t want to see the world and its granny wearing our new heels any more than we want to rub shoulders with the bridge and tunnel crew on a night out. Just as Jane Shepherdson broke away from an over-exposed TopShop to work in the infinitely more elite environment of Whistles, Mike Filpi, formerly director of the Ignite Group behind such success stories as Eclipse and […]

Enough with clubbing concierges and shopping sherpas, the hotel’s elite team of ‘bee […]
