The best of the seasonal styles from beautiful British brands...
Woven with sparkling bergamot zest, wrapped in creamy orange flower and warm enveloping musk, this is a real scent statement and a beautiful example of the dusky, rich quality of Floris' Chypresse eau de toilette; perfect for crisp winter evenings. This full-colour illustrated edition of Newt Scamander's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling is a wonderful addition to a child's library or any coffee table. Illustrated by fine artist Olivia Lomenech Gill - who has illustrated every beast from Acromantula to Yeti - the cover itself features the Occamy, a two-legged winged creature that lays eggs of the purest, softest silver. Sessions & Co was created with artist Mark Hearld, who works with different designers to make gorgeous quilts for children, intended as heirloom pieces that can cover beds, be used as blankets for the sofa or floor, or even hung on the wall. They also come with beautiful matching cushions. S-dress is an intelligent, conscious edit of sophisticated and effortless apparel. The contemporary sell-out label marries fashion and ethics, combining style, comfort and practicality with its ever-growing curated collection of sustainable ready-to-wear. Former Skandium director Charlie Perry has launched a new concept store, Britain Can Make It, which brings together the very best of post-war and contemporary British designers, including pieces from Anglepoise, Dartington, Kaymet and Royal Doulton. Highly-acclaimed couture designer Fiona Clare has been designing award-winning wedding dresses and formal outfits for over 25 years. She is a favoured designer of HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, and her collection includes beautifully understated dresses and elegant coats with finely cut lines. Specialising in hand-wound timepieces with an ethos for vintage aesthetics, the Marloe Watch Company has just released its third collection. A more complex mechanical watch than previous iterations, it comes in grey, panda, white, coffee and vanilla watch face finishes. Designed exclusively for The House of Bruar in pure new wool, their tapestry pashminas weave together a simply stunning selection of forms and colours to create a unique, easy to wear garment that's a work of art in itself. Unlined with two front pockets. The intriguingly named Curious Department is an exciting London-based design studio and online boutique that specialises in quality art and prints and luxurious home accessories. Its signature pieces feel both decadent and exotic, and these Scarab Coasters are a perfect example.
