AG Limited Editions

To all those who can’t resist a new designer handbag it seems the market is about to get some steep competition in the form of nothing less than a Gucci. Daughter of the late Maurizio Gucci, Alessandra Gucci has paved her own way under the name AG and is launching her first limited edition, designer handbag collection. AG’s inspiration for her new design came from her interest in Botany and each of her bags have been influenced by the way floral imagery is depicted. The most interesting decision of AG’s however, is her choice of leather.  American Alligator. AG felt that […]

Election Style

There is now less than a week to go until the election of the next President of the United States. For months, the key issues have been debated, televised, and scrutinised; the political gauntlets have been well and truly thrown; and now the world waits with baited breath for a result. Much has been made of the rising costs of the candidates’ campaigns – and if we in Britain felt we were lacking in our offerings of (monetary) support, now may be the best, and indeed the only remaining time to make that move. Obama’s “Runway To Change” collection has […]

Creative Director Alice Stone became interested in jewellery and clothes from a young age, “I would go on holiday and bring back a broach from a market. I’m influenced by colors and buildings and cultures from other countries.” A […]

Jo Malone

Sweet Lime and Cedar Cologne Sweet Lime and Cedar Cologne is the latest new fragrance from Jo Malone.  Inspired by the diverse and delicate blending of Thai Cuisine, the exotic scent is created from citrus fruits, aromatic leaves, flowers and spices.     The new perfume was pioneered in Thailand and although at first it may sound unusual, the art of fusing cooking and carefully combined perfumes has been a long tradition in the Far East. The end product is a captivating and sensual fragrance. Although this perfume would suit both men and women, being heavy on the cedar, some women might […]

Ralph Lauren

They say you can’t put a price on love but Ralph Lauren has proved that wrong, with the launch of his perfume Love, at £2000 a bottle.  “Aimed at women over 25 with high spending powers,” Love comes in a gold-plated bottle and is undoubtedly Lauren’s most exclusive perfume. The super-premium Love joins the UK launch of Lauren’s Notorious, which hit the US market in the summer and has been hugely popular. Notorious derives its inspiration from the film noir actresses and the French model Laetitia Casta will head up its marketing campaign.  Love certainly carries on this attempt to revive old […]

The 26-year-old budding British designer, whose fashion pieces mix bondage-fetish and gothic-glamour, has created a quiet sanctuary for VIPs to take time out away from the frenzy of the fashion shows. On the collaboration Gareth said: “It’s very interesting to be able to translate what I am doing on the runway into an interior space. The Moët Room […]

Donna Karan

Chaos Donna Karan is relaunching its iconic “Chaos” perfume.  Brought back by popular demand, the spirited cult-classic was discontinued in the early 2000s but had a band of avid followers who helped this legendary scent reach almost mythic proportions and fought hard for its return.  So now it’s back and it’s to the all important question. Has Karan managed to recapture exactly the same distinctive woody, spicy fragrance of the original?  First reports from the devotees  appear to indicate it has – though there are suggestions that it may be  just a little lighter.  One disappointment though seems to be […]
