Couture in Connaught Village

Looking to dazzle this party season? We bring news of a new haute couture boutique in the heart of Connaught Village, and it promises to answer all of your festive fashion prayers. The Atelier began life as small bridal shop in Malaysia nearly 40 years ago – from these humble beginnings it has grown into a world-renowned couturier under the creative direction of Professor Jimmy Choo OBE, who was appointed to the house in 2017. Under his guidance, a team of highly-skilled designers create exquisitely beautiful garments that combine avant-garde tailoring with the very finest fabrics. The Atelier offers three exclusive lines – The Bridal by The Atelier, The Atelier Couture and The Atelier Ready-To-Wear – encompassing everything from romantic and dreamy silhouettes, to fierce, directional designs, every perfectly tailored piece is a unique celebration of the female form. You can now explore the collection at the brand-new boutique – The Atelier’s first bricks and mortar store in Europe, and its flagship store. The address is significant, too: number 18 Connaught Street was the site of the very first Jimmy Choo store. The space is as beautifully designed as the couture pieces themselves, ensuring the ultimate shopping experience. Step into a world of pure luxury…

Mental health MOT

How are you? It can be hard to cope with the dreary winter days and increasingly desperate news stories. And, in the festive whirlwind, it is especially hard to step back and check in with our mental health. But one London gym is urging us to do just this. Gymbox’s new MIND category has been designed to support people wanting to connect their mental and physical wellbeing. Three new research-backed classes have been introduced to the timetable – they join Cocoon, Gymbox’s popular aerial relaxation class, and meditation class, The Portal. The new classes include Weight Lifted, a 45-minute session that taps into the principles of trauma release exercises, combining shaking therapy with breathing and movement. Or, for those struggling to sleep, Catch Some ZZZs has been built around ‘The Military Method’, and incorporates breathwork and progressive muscle relaxation. And, for those suffering with anxiety, there’s Regulate, which introduces practical tools – think journalling, deep relaxation and breathwork. Make the ultimate gift of self-love this Christmas.
