La Fixé


Taking things slow

Hand crafted in a small British atelier, La Fixé is one seriously gorgeous slow fashion label that you really ought to have on your radar. The brand’s ethos is around consciously creating simple, buildable, forever pieces – a capsule wardrobe of daily luxury. Think luxe basics and high-quality soft tailoring crafted from tactile Italian silks, sumptuous organic cotton and luxurious British wool, all sourced in Europe and hand crafted in small batches. Built with sustainable practice and conscious consumerism in mind, from cotton shirts to silk camis, and fleece hoodies to tailored jackets, every piece in the collection is designed to be lived in and loved in a thousand different ways. We can’t get enough of the occasion wear pieces, which will see you through season after season of weddings and events. Elegant and cool, the Biarritz silk plunge jumpsuit (£450) is a particular favourite. And who could resist the Raya gold sequin shorts (£75) – guaranteed to have you dazzling at your next summer festival.


Grace de Monaco


Luxury for good

Having first launched earlier this year, luxury maison, Grace de Monaco has just introduced its third fragrance, Ombre Sereine. Grace de Monaco is a first-of-its kind luxury-for-good fragrance, home, beauty and accessories brand, with all profits from sales directly supporting the Princess Grace Awards programme. Princess Grace (formerly Grace Kelly) was well known for supporting emerging artists during her lifetime, and upon her death in 1982, her husband Prince Rainier III and friends  (including Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck and Cary Grant) honoured her legacy by creating the Princess Grace Foundation.  While the first two scents were created by big name players in  the haute perfumery world, Grace de Monaco turned to an exciting emerging talent for this third scent. Xavier Blaizot, a seventh-generation perfumer, has crafted a complex fragrance filled with dichotomous delights: Ombre Sereine is light and dark, playful and sombre, a cocktail-fuelled party and a smoky salon. Top notes of pink berry and mimosa are layered with bergamot, orange blossom and lavender, and mingle with deeper notes of leather and musk. Xavier tells us: “Personally, what makes this perfume special and unique is the synergy between old and new. It feels familiar, but fascinating and alluring all at once; it’s illusionary rather than precise.”
