From a YSL lipstick machine and a Prada cardholder to limited-edition Zara x Studio Nicholson jeans – here’s what we’re adding to our cart
Friday 23 September 2022 By Teo van den Broeke
Shopping can be overwhelming at times. Whether you’re revamping your skincare collection, after a new piece of furniture for your home, or you simply want to treat yourself to a new bag, the options often appear endless – especially when browsing online.
Thankfully, the Soho House editorial team is here to help you decide what’s worth the investment, with a weekly round-up of what to shop – from the best in beauty, to fashion and interior must-haves and beyond. This week, we’ve got our eyes on YSL’s Rouge Sur Mesure, a lipstick maker changing the beauty game, a pair of jeans from the Zara x Studio Nicholson collection, and a fiery red Prada cardholder. You can also get your hands on some Soho Home highlights, including a lamp and a Cowshed electric diffuser.
The saffiano cardholder
Wallets are a thing of the past now that we live in a cashless world. Instead, we’re all about the cardholder, and this fiery red Prada classic is a staple that deserves to be in your handbag. Made with saffiano leather lining and designed with six card slots, there’s more than enough space to store your essentials in style.
Saffiano leather cardholder, Prada, £290
The balloon jeans
High street and designer collaborations tend to be a hit or miss, but Zara’s new Studio Nicholson line has passed the test with flying colours – especially thanks to these white balloon- fit jeans.
Balloon jeans, Zara x Studio Nicholson, £59.99
The Darcy lamp
Get a subtle touch of Soho House in your home with the Darcy Marble Table Lamp by Soho Home. Designed by our in-house team, it has all the charm of our signature interiors, bringing a dash of modern antique to your space.
Darcy marble table lamp, Soho Home, from £495
The comfy coat
As the temperature drops, our first thought is on which coat we’ll be bringing the new season in with, and this draped, fringed, wool-blend jacket by Totême is at the top of our list.
Totême coat, Net-A-Porter, £690
The all-season sunglasses
Sunglasses aren’t just for the summer, so if you’re after a new pair for your autumn wardrobe then MELLER is the brand to browse for cool designs and good quality at affordable prices – this ‘Kessie Tiger Carbon’ design is just one example of many.
Kessie Tiger Carbon sunglasses, MELLER, £40
The savvy skin gadget
If you’ve yet to have a treatment at FaceGym in London’s Shoreditch House, then this is your chance to trial it at home with their new Youthful Active Roller – a two-in-one microblading tool that makes treating yourself to a nice pre-bedtime facial easy.
Youthful Active Roller, FaceGym, £55
The energy cleanser
With Libra season officially here, it’s time to cleanse our surrounding energy with Cowshed’s electric diffuser. Complete with three fragrance oils, it’ll help bring a nice, therapeutic vibe to your home.
Cowshed Electric Diffuser And Trio Of Fragrance Oils, Soho Home, £110
The designer pearls
As soon as you set your eyes on Dior’s Lily of the Valley pearl necklace, you’ll want it immediately. Made with silver-finish brass and small lily-inspired flower designs, it comes complete with a ‘CD’ logo. The length is adjustable, too.
Lily of the Valley necklace, £780, Dior
The ‘It’ bag
New week = new bag. At least when the bag in question is the mini canvas top-handle bag by Gucci. It’s available in both white and light brown, so take your pick.
Mini canvas top handle bag, Gucci, £2,200
The bougie balaclava
As mentioned, we’re prepping for colder weather, and what better way to keep yourself warm than with this black and white striped, heart-shaped, wool balaclava by Loewe? *adds to shopping cart immediately*
Striped wool hat, Loewe, £225
The lipstick maker
YSL’s Rouge Sur Mesure powered by Perso is one of the most innovative beauty launches this year. It’s an AI make-up machine (the size of a coffee mug) that custom-blends lipsticks, meaning with just the tap of a button, you can select limitless shades of lipstick.
Rouge Sur Mesure, YSL, £250
Keep your eyes peeled for…
The Dior gardening kit
This week, Dior announced a new gardening set, and we need to get our hands on it right now. Inspired by the brand’s iconic Saddle bag, the upcoming release acts as an ode to Kim Jones’ love of flowers. And while the brand has yet to confirm a date for the drop, it’s officially on our radar.
