FIT TO BE TIED

Leonardo da Vinci once proclaimed that “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. Nowhere does this hold so true than at famed Italian house Bottega Veneta, where the iconic Knot clutch has long been a symbol of the brand, the ultimate in simple sophistication. This year — 13 years after the the clutch hit the shelves and just three years after their eponymous first fragrance was released — the brand once again taps the knot for inspiration with the launch of their sophomore fragrance of the same name.

Where Bottega Veneta was warm and peppery, The Knot promises to take wearers on an olfactory journey of citrusy fruits and robust florals. Limette, clementine, orange flower, and mandarin mingle against lavender, rose, Tonka beans, and  peony to give a distinctly Italian feel, reminiscent of the coasts — creative director Tomas Maier’s inspiration. The Knot is housed in a bottle reminiscent of Bottega Veneta and topped with a gold knotted cap designed to look like the basket woven leather the brand is known for.

Knot EDP by Bottega Veneta, available at Harrods.com.

GETTING CHEEKY

When Clinique’s wildly popular Chubby Sticks first hit the market, they were heralded as the most innovative thing since mineral foundation. The new fall release from the brand is no exception. Chubby Stick blush cream is Clinique’s take on a classic cheek stain, with a heat and environmental resistant formula as it’s foundation and is jam packed with skin loving vitamin E (the same great stuff we love in our favorite skincare). The line boasts four shades of natural flush enhancing tones—from a deep berry to a neutral tan—that blend with just about every skin tone. Destined to be the standout product for fall, let’s see how long before everyone else follows suite with their own version.

 

Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm, €24, available in stores now and online now.
