Fun in the sun—safely
Living Nature has released its Daily Protect facial lotion with SPF 20 protection. Not only does it protect skin from UVA and UVB rays, but it hydrates and nurtures the skin thanks to hyaluronic acid, organic alœ vera, vitamin E to guard against free radicals, and organic coconut oil and shea butter. The lotion is vegan-friendly and 70 per cent organic, and is priced at NZ$56 for 60 ml.

It’s beyond bridal: Spanish brand Rosa Clará releases a collection of cocktail dresses, marking a return to socializing. This is a luxurious range made with the care that Rosa Clará places in its bridal gowns, with some of the hallmarks from its more established business. Taffeta, crêpe, floral brocade, and volume are present, as well as hand-crafted beadwork, with bright colours (red, fuchsia, turquoise and emerald) making bold statements this season.


In living colour
Mellerio’s Pierreries high jewellery range has been inspired by the company’s earlier work dating back to 1820–30. There, the family-owned brand released colourful, romantic jewellery, something that its current chair and artistic director Laure Isabelle Mellerio tapped into for her latest collection. These multicoloured necklaces employ yellow, pink, and green gold, pairing each with complimentary gems: citrine, purple amethysts, and prasiolite respectively. There are hefty weights: expect 220 ct per necklace, and a price to match, at €48,000.
For a luxury retail brand, Philipp Plein watches are competitively priced. Its autumn–winter 2022–3 line-up has a number of designs for women, including the Plein Extreme (below) which features a hexagonal motif on the dial, reflecting the German brand’s symbol. The feminine detail comes with the crystals set on the dial and the bracelet, according to the company. The Skull Genderless (bottom) is a new take on the earlier Skull range, with a slimmer case, albeit with a large diameter of 41 mm. A 3D skull appears on the dial while the strap comes in either black or lilac with an embossed skull bone at the 6 o’clock mark and the tongue buckle. Both ranges’ watches are water resistant to 50 m.
