Inspiration is as much about preparation as it is execution. Beginning a new season of discovery means embracing both the new and the established – those hidden yet frequented by those ‘in the know’. The investment in that journey may involve an item of unique jewellery, a bespoke outfit, or a fragrance without compare. As you venture into a new season, take the time to select that perfect accompaniment.

The independent British fragrance brand has created a range of gender-neutral perfumes that are quintessentially British, with iconic bottles that have been hand-crafted by some of the nation’s most talented artisans.

/// RUPERT SANDERSON
Starting with a collection of just 15 shoes, Rupert Sanderson’s eponymous brand was founded on the design philosophy of ‘less is more’ – a principle that continues to underlie every collection. Focusing on creating the perfect silhouette, he draws inspiration from the sensual curve of the lasts and heels, using the finest leathers and materials, and in an idiosyncratically British twist each style is named after a daffodil.
/// KIKI MCDONOUGH
Jewellery exists to be enjoyed each and every day, but knowing how to style and match your collection to your wardrobe can cause some to shy away from their favourite pieces. In addition to her own timeless, wearable designs, Kiki McDonough offers colour consultations to find the gemstone colours that work best for your complexion and style.
