Chérie Loves: February 2013

Opening Ceremony by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon (published by Rizzoli), £25.60, Amazon
Opening Ceremony’s first hardback book is a fabulous scrapbook recording the brand’s history, collaborations and cool projects since its beginnings in 2002.  The book includes graphic stickers, Terry Richardson photography, zine inserts by friends such as Chloë Sevigny and Spike Jonze and artwork by Rodarte and Terence Koh.

Saint Laurent Paloma Striped Suede and Metallic-Leather Sandals, £730, Net-a-Porter
Hedi Slimane’s debut Saint Laurent collection was full of covetable footwear and one of my favourites are these luxurious, disco-esque heels.

Ditsy Garden Dress, £45, Oasis
Luella may be no more, but the English Eccentric brand’s spirit lives on with this adorable, flirty floral and black lace dress.

Valentina by Valentino eau de parfum, £41.50-£75, Debenhams
Valentina by Valentino is a delicate, sweet, heady floral oriental fragrance that captures la dolce vita and the refined femininity of Valentino.  Created by Olivier Cresp and Alberto Morillas, the fragrance opens with Calabrian Bergamot and Alba Truffle and leads to a white floral bouquet of Amalfi Orange Blossom, Tuberose and Jasmine with Wild Strawberry.  The base notes of Amber and Cedar give the fragrance a sensual, dusky warmth.  I also adore the round glass bottle adorned with pretty blush and white flowers.

Willow Tote Calf Ostrich Mix Navy, available mid-February, Mulberry
Mulberry’s stunning new Willow tote features a clever zip-detached envelope clutch, so you can instantly switch from daytime functionality to evening glam.  The luxurious two-in-one bag is the ultimate travel accessory, particularly if you need to streamline your luggage.  The Willow clutch can also be bought on its own and comes in black, navy, white, biscuit brown, nude, apricot and mint.

Tosha Pink Bracelet, £49, Swarovski
Summer comes early with this boho-luxe turquoise crystal and pink neon cord bracelet.  Even though it’s freezing outside, it makes me dream of sundowner cocktails at an exotic beach bar.

Yazbukey for Cire Trudon Candle, 70E, available at Colette now and at Cire Trudon, Chiltern Street, from March
A match made in heaven, accessory designer Yazbukey has created an exquisite candle for Cire Trudon, the world’s oldest candle maker.  Designed in seductive boudoir shades of black, red and pink, the scent is an alluring blend of violet and tobacco.
