One more sleep til the Christian Louboutin Beauté pop-up at Selfridges. As pop-ups go, I predict this is gonna be a biggie. To recap: Christian Louboutin is launching his beauty empire Christian Louboutin Beauté with an iconic red nail colour. To experience it in the flesh, head to Selfridges Oxford Street tomorrow (ideally not all at once) where you can buy the astonishing dagger-heel shaped bottles from a dedicated ‘Loubiville’ beauty space. The pop-up will be in the main beauty hall, in front of Shu Uemura (that’s next to MAC, and on the right hand side of the Information desk). Basically, just follow the hordes of red-soled fanatics.

WAH Nails launches a full product line

Wah-london-nail-colours-launch

It’s five years since I first wrote about Sharmadean Reid and WAH Nails and wow, hasn’t the nail art landscape changed since then? I’d say that Reid and Sophy Robson have contributed hugely to the profits of the big beauty brands by bringing nail art into the fashion mainstream.

So it’s about time we got a WAH London product line and yes it’s is a comprehensive one. Continue reading

Diana Vreeland: the fragrance

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Diana-Vreeland-perfume-disneyrollergirl

Why shouldn’t there be a Diana Vreeland fragrance? It makes absolute sense to me that she who understood the importance of engaging all the senses should be remembered with a line of utterly sophisticated scents. The range is the brainchild of Alexander Vreeland, the same grandson who recently released the book Diana Vreeland Memos  – apparently the bigger aim is to create a luxury brand to celebrate the legacy of the former Vogue editrix.

COMING SOON: DIANA VREELAND FRAGRANCE

Diana-Vreeland-fragrance

July is the month that the fashion and beauty brands unveil all their Christmas goodies. I try to avoid Christmas In July because I don’t work on a mag any more and frankly, it’s exhausting! But I do the odd department store press day as they usually have the best exclusives. Here’s my favourite from Selfridges: Diana Vreeland fragrance. I have more info coming but it’s the brainchild of one of Mrs Vreeland’s grandsons, it smells refined and luxe and goes on sale at Selfridges on August 21st. Continue reading

1 Jo-Malone-Calm-and-collected

Here’s a great three-way collab that marries experiential retail with personalisation and a hand crafted approach to design. Last week, Jo Malone London invited me to experience its pop-up screen printing studio hosted by creative collective Calm & Collected. The arty foursome have designed special graphic labels for five of Jo Malone London’s favourite scents (yay, Pomegranate Noir is in there!) and as an added bonus the guys are screen-printing complementary boxes to go with.

DROP EVERYTHING! Can we please take a moment to admire the beauty that is this Proenza Schouler X MAC collection? The packaging is as lovely as the products with a psychedelic yet sophisticated degrade effect on the boxes, pencils and brushes, as well as on the blusher compact itself. This little lot just landed at Selfridges

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY COMES TO LONDON

Marc Jacobs Beauty

So Marc Jacobs Beauty arrived in London a couple of weeks ago and no one knew. Not even British Beauty Blogger! I stumbled upon the entire range of it in the Marc Jacobs Mount Street store (after a quick recce of Celine – retail heaven). It’s not cheap but the colours are stunning and the lipstick packaging is right up there with Chanel’s push-click cases. The staff are super helpful and encourage you to try the products, but I haven’t yet. I definitely will soon though… Continue reading
