This week we’re shopping:
A look back at 10 years worth of incredible imagery and clothing from FRAME—one of our go-to brands.
Alexander McQueen, The Jewelled Hobo leather bag
With its tough gold hardware and structured silhouette, the Jewelled Hobo, by way of Alexander McQueen, is one of this season’s most exciting bags. Packed full of personality, the cuff is embellished with 100% Swarovski crystals. It comes in several colourways (from blue to red) but if we’d have to choose, we’d opt for the timelessness of the black and gold combo.
The Disney x Karl collection is one of our favourite—and most anticipated—collaborations of 2023. From crossbody bags to sweatshirts and T-shirt’s all emblazoned with the Karl and Daffy logo, there is something for everyone. Our pick of the bunch would be the super fun—and chic—half-shoulder bag.
The first slip-on trainer from Baudoin & Lange comes in a range of paired back neutrals—think oatmeal and pebble—as well as timeless colours such as black and white. They are the sort of thing you can just throw on and go, knowing that they’ll compliment whatever you’re wearing but that you’ll be super comfortable all day.
Chloé, Medium Leather Penelope Shoulder bag
We’re obsessed leather fringe and braiding on the Penelope, the latest addition to the line of covetable Chloé bags.
Zara SS23 Studio Collection
Romanticism is the order of the day for the Zara SS23 Studio Collection. The campaign lensed by the iconic Steven Meisel, shows the elevated collection full of rich and tactile fabrics and contemporary and fun shapes.
Cowshed, Essential Sleep Set
The Essential Sleep Set contains three Cowshed classics, the Sleep Bath Salts, Sleep Candle and Sleep Calming Pillow Mist, aka everything you need for a restless night.
Emporio Armani, The Gummy Bag
With its contemporary shape and exciting colour ways, the Gummy Bag from Emporio Armani is the perfect way to inject some fun and colour into your wardrobe.
La Roche-Posay, Cicaplast B5 Face Serum
Formulated for dehydrated skin, expect all the skin-quenching and plumping properties of the Cicaplast range. With two types of Hyaluronic acid—so that it travels deeper beneath the skin—this serum left my thirsty skin feeling softer and hydrated.
The George bag from the Tusting SS23 collection is the ultimate carries-everything bag. It comes in three colourways (Tan, Black & Linen, Tan & Linen) but we’re opting for the timelessness of the tan.
A.P.C x Liberty Interaction #18
To celebrate 35 years of collaboration, A.P.C and Liberty London have created a capsule collection made entirely of Liberty prints.
Packed with a host of nourishing ingredients—vitamins B3, B12 and C, adaptogens and fungi extracts—the new Skin Pearls from Herbar could be the answer to glowing skin.
Fans of bright and green floral scents will absolutely fall for the new Bloom hand wash from Kankan with notes of citrusy bergamot, fresh zingy neroli and soothing smooth chamomile.
Bulgari, Serpenti Baia Shoulder bag,
We love the juxtaposition of clean lines and contrasting iconic Serpenti hardware on the new Serpenti Baia shoulder bag. The attention to detail is what makes this bags design so successful: the snakehead magnetic clasp has one of the most satisfying snaps known to man, and if you look closely, you’ll see an intricate design with green enamel, gold scales and black onyx eyes—just divine.
Meet Reome, the brainchild of Joanna Ellner, former glossies Beauty Director and certified Acupuncturist. This woman knows good beauty.
Reome is all about slow and considered beauty; embracing the notion of self-care, using skincare as a vehicle; rebalancing your skin by using less and buying better; and skincare that actually works.
For now, we have the nourishing Active Recovery Broth, a serum packed with actives that promise to boost your skin health allowing for a brighter, more radiant appearance. The texture is lightweight and soaks right Into the skin.
A seriously impressive concoction that looks chic, too – the embodiment of its creator. Get into Reome. Thank us later.
