Jo Malone London Marmalade Fragrance CollectionInspired by the shape and detailing seen on vintage marmalade jars. Jo Malone London celebrates all the fun of the fete with a new collection, The Marmalade Collection. Five scents; Tangy Rhubarb, Rose Blush, Orange Peel, Elderflower and Blackberry & Bay are included in the new 30ml cologne range.

Natural fruit extracts were created specially for The Marmalade Collection by one of the UK’s leading soft fruit processors in Blairgowrie, Scotland. Usually used in the food industry, fruits and berries from local growers are steam distilled into draughts that are added directly to the fragrance. These extracts help to capture the true vibrancy of tart rhubarb and juicy blackberry. 

Jo Malone London Marmalade Fragrance CollectionCeline Roux, Global Head of Fragrance says, “Over 10 years ago, we launched the Sugar & Spice collection, which was inspired by beloved British puddings. This worked really well, and I started thinking about fragrances themed around jams and, in particular, marmalade. Using seasonal fruits to create homemade preserves that you can gift to family and friends seems like such a quintessentially British pastime, conjuring up images of English breakfasts, high teas and village fêtes.”

Jo Malone London Marmalade Fragrance CollectionTheChicGeek says, “This looks like Jo Malone’s attempt to woo the Gen Z customer; smaller sizes, cheaper price points, Helvetica-like hipster packaging and sweet shop type fragrances. The imagery is a mix of Gucci and soft-focus Sofia Coppola. This feels like a completely different customer for them, though some of their fragrances have always had a mix of sweet and gourmandy in there. I haven't tried these to recommend any."

Quiksilver The Original Boardshort swimwear surfQuiksilver is celebrating its most iconic range of boardshorts by bringing back the most loved and iconic design from the early days of the brand, The Original. This bold boardshort set, originally famed for its iconic checkered side panel, will be available from this month and will never go out of stock.

Born in 1969, The Original was the first boardshort to blend style with performance to create something that represented the raw, progressive energy of surfing.

Last year, Quiksilver announced that 100% of the brand’s boardshort range is now made from recycled water bottles. Quiksilver has focused on using recycled water bottles since the breakthrough of this fabric technology and to date has reused over 250 million bottles that would otherwise have gone into landfill. As well as recycled fabrics, the shorts are built with technology to service the needs of surfers, and the everyday wearer at the beach or pool.

New for this year, Quiksilver’s boardshorts will also feature the new 'Surf Silk' and 'Highlite' fabric for comfort, durability and performance which use 100% recycled nylon from fishing buoys.

The Original boardshorts are available as a boardshort and a volley short, and priced from £45-£60

TheChicGeek says, "While the fashion in men's swimwear has been getting smaller and smaller, the boardshort could be ripe for a comeback. Just be careful if you're short..."

Clients will be able to step into ‘The ADAM Atelier at Harrods’ and indulge in the artful hands and discerning eye of their house barbers.

ADAM Grooming Atelier brings old-world craftsmanship and grooming rituals and updates them for the modern world. At ADAM, there is a lean into the history and mastery of the Turkish barber. Since 2016, the award-winning ADAM Atelier has created 7 uniquely designed spaces in London, where men can go to escape, replenish and emerge feeling nurtured and groomed for city life

“We founded ADAM for the modern gentleman who values craft, tradition and artistry.” says Esat Kolege and Oytun Pakcan, Founders of ADAM, “Our clientele reflect the world we live in, whether it’s passion for science, art, commerce or sport, every ADAM man is connected in their ambition and desire to experience rituals that broaden the horizon.”

Exclusive for Harrods, all treatments are performed by Adam’s most senior barbers, who are custodians of the traditional Turkish rituals such as the hot towel, ear flame and massage, which feature in all services. Alongside wet shaves and classic cuts, this exclusive treatment menu will also include facials, threading and blow dries. Adam only use the finest ingredients and unique blends of essential oils that restore, soothe and rejuvenate. Guests can unwind with a freshly brewed Turkish coffee, an expertly crafted oil fashioned or perhaps a Japanese whisky on the rocks from the Atelier’s in-house bar.

Eray originates from Istanbul also and he mastered his craft for many years under the visionary, Zaha Hadid. He creates spaces with purpose and strength. The Atelier, like the historic Hammams, assures privacy and complete focus on the client.

TheChicGeek says, “I’ve been a fan of Good News since I first saw them at London Fashion Week in 2017 - Read more here - Linking up with the giant H&M should be not just great for their exposure but also their bank balance. H&M has never been that great in the shoe department, so this is a massive improvement, looking at the pics, and the prices are good too. I’m always open to a fresh twist on the classic plimsoll.”
