Louis-Vuitton-Vivienne-Bag

So much for super-brands shying away from obvious logos, Louis Vuitton recently launched this Vivienne bag (£2,880) with a can’t-miss-it brass logo closure. I’ve taken a secret shine to it as the rest of the bag is neat, clean and understated. Buy it here.

Quote of the day: Mark Moore



Mark Moore

“Jordan and Vivienne Westwood once took me for dinner after shutting the shop and we were walking up the King’s Road when a bunch of punks on the other side of the road were shouting “Vivienne you sell out!” Vivienne gobbed at them in reply and turned to us with a smile saying, “I’m still a punk!”

Buy it now: Travel size fragrances



Venetia-Scott-Orla-Kiely

For any last minute holiday-goers, can I recommend some great travel-friendly fragrances? Cult Beauty alerted me to Le Soft Perfume (£19), a lightweight solid perfume in the prettiest recycled packaging from the ex co-founder of Sephora. As well as delicious scents (I’m wearing La Reine Soleil right now), these stick fragrances nourish, moisturise, firm and restore the skin.  Using all-natural Shea butter, mango butter and tamanu oils, they’re well suited to sensitive skins. Buy it here.
