SCENT CLUTCHES BY CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA
These vintage-inspired perfume clutches certainly will give off that sense of nostalgia, especially for those of us who are familiar with our grandmother’s way of beautification! Charlotte Dellal agrees according to that by saying “I’ ve always found scent bottles such beautiful objects and I wanted to give them personality and a function”. In our opinion she has surpassed herself again by creating gorgeous transparent perspex clutches.

LILY COLE’S ECO-FRIENDLY JEWELRY COLLECTION
British model, actress and environmental campaigner Lily Cole has teamed up with Sky Rainforest Rescue and WWF for a new jewelry collection made of natural Amazonian rubber, aiming to raise awareness and help save one billion trees in the Amazon rainforest. During a week-long trip to Brazil Lily Cole met women producing rubber, learned more about their craft and she got inspired to design an accessories line. We would say… how thoughtful and chic of her!

SOPHIA LOREN’S STARE BY NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD
The ‘Sophia’ sunglasses, designed by Nicholas Kirkwood for Pollini, are part of his second eyewear collection for the brand. They are a tribute to Italian idol and actress Sophia Loren, who’s known for her seductive and feminine sense of style -and of course her expressive gaze.
What make them special is the cat-eye shape but mostly the eyelashes on the upper frame that create the illusion of bold, animated eyes. Crafted with layers of handmade Italian acetate, this inimitable pair of sunglasses is available in three shades: jet black, blue, and grey milk.
