TREND SPARK!

Trend Spark!

Manolo Blahnik Spring/Summer 2008We had published the news about H&M's collaboration with the legendary Finnish textile company, Marrimeko (read the story).

The collection will feature womens and childrenswear, including dresses, hats, and bags. The collection will be out in April.

H&M aren't the only ones to use Marimekko prints recently; Manolo Blahnik has also used some of the floral prints in his Spring Summer 2008 collection (read the story), which will be available from January from his New York and London shops.

Moon Dress by Roland MouretRoland Mouret had a tough act to follow after his Galaxy dress caught the attention of press and celebrities worldwide. His next trick is the Moon Dress, available as part of his RM Roland Mouret collection.

With similar geometric seaming and detailing, the Moon Dress is also very sexy and flattering, and available in several colors.

Roland Mouret has also opened his first ever pop-up store in London’s Selfridges department store, but the Moon Dress is also available on Net-a-Porter.. (Price: €1,485.00)

Gift Spark!

Bar Spark!

Leonidas This week's Gift Spark! is from my absolute favourite chocolatier in the world, Leonidas.

This Belgian brand makes the most exquisite butter cream chocolates that are so fresh they need to be kept refrigerated and only last a week.

But trust me, they will never last a week, especially if you order an entire box of their most popular chocolate, the Manon Café, "a light coffee-flavored fresh butter cream filling topped with a roasted hazelnut."

Assortment boxes start around $30. To die for...

The actual bar is a catwalk. No bottles are on full view but you can catch a glimpse of them through the frosted and backlit glass walls behind which the attentive and gracious staff prepare drinks and mix the finest cocktails. Last week I managed to hit a few of London’s so called “hottest” bars, and this has reaffirmed my belief that these celebrity hang-out places are totally overrated. I don’t understand how places can charge £15 for a cocktail and have rude bartenders and terrible service. I had the complete opposite experience two days after when I went for drinks at the Mandarin Bar in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge.

I have never had a better value £15 cocktail; the staff were extremely polite, attentive, and helpful, the venue was beautiful, and even the door man who flagged our taxi was friendly and gorgeous. This is the way forward, forget the crowded overrated bras and nightclubs and opt for the 5 star experiences. Hotels like the Mandarin Oriental have a standard to uphold and you are sure to get a true luxury experience, rather than queuing outside a crappy nightclub in the rain hoping to hell you will be deemed worthy enough to enter.
