Dreaming in colour

Combining asymmetrical, dangling cabochon-cut and vibrant gemstones, the BOUTON long earrings by Tamara Comolli are the perfect way to complement any outfit. Despite their size, the flexible design makes them extremely comfortable to wear. The model also allows for different colour combinations, such as Camel with white diamonds, brown moonstone and sand moonstone, or the more colourful Candy look, with blue, pink and yellow sapphires, mandarin garnet, Peridot, Swiss topaz or pink tourmaline.


The delicate freshness in the top notes of Neroli and Petitgrain capture the essence of this unisex Eau de Parfum from Bella Freud. A subtle homage to the founder’s great-grandfather, Sigmund Freud, the notes are lifted by a hint of Tobacco Flower, with deep, dense resins and a base accord of cedarwood, dry amber and dark musks. The Psychoanalysis line also includes a candle and a jumper.

New side(s)

Perfect for an after-dinner stroll in the Algarve, this light poncho comes from Etro’s 2020 Spring/Summer collection. Made with 100% silk, it’s double-sided, with a discreet and elegant floral print and a more daring yellow-and-black checkered side, to ensure that your holiday photos don’t all look the same.


Part of Heidi Klein’s latest line of resortwear, the Tanzania maxi dress is the perfect canvas for the brand’s signature prints made with the finest fabrics and inspired by the world’s most beautiful beaches. Airy and comfortable, it has removable bust padding and adjustable halter ties. This halterneck dress is also fitted under the bust with smocking detail at the back to ensure a perfect fit and gold shiny buttons to top it all off.

Grand complications

The most complicated Patek Philippe wristwatch has a new white gold version, boasting a front and back blue opaline dial. Capturing many lifetimes of artistry to produce an object of timeless worth, the 20 complications include five chiming modes, two of which are patented world firsts: an acoustic alarm and a date repeater sounding the date on demand. With a manually wound mechanical movement, this watch comes with a hand-stitched alligator leather strap.

Santos de Cartier

A tribute to Santos Dumont, a Brazilian inventor and aviation pioneer, the contemporary feel of this eyewear line borrows the famous Santos screws from the iconic watch of the same name. These sunglasses have a smooth and brushed platinum-finish metal, platinum-finish metal screws, caravan shape and graduated blue lenses with red flash. The Santos de Cartier line also features over 30 different styles, such as smooth champagne golden and black lacquer-finish metal with burgundy lenses or smooth champagne golden-finish metal with green polarised lenses.

Island charm

Combining beautiful, inspirational designs with deep, striking colours, Etro’s swimwear line is a testament to quality. Inspired by the Hawaiian sunset, with the traditional flora taking centre stage and a beautiful dancer. These swim shorts feature an elasticated drawstring waist, side pockets, a straight leg for maximum comfort and logo patch at the rear.

Nice and breezy

New from Façonnable, this shirt boasts an original stripe pattern complemented by a floral print that gives it a unique personality. Made from cool, hardwearing cotton poplin, it comes in a contemporary fit with a spread Massena collar that includes removable stays to hold everything in place. It also has a chest pocket with the iconic embroidered Barrette and contrasting gussets.
