Domes Novos Santorini: A fresh take on classic Greek hospitality
Luxury London
by Hitanshi Kamdar
53m ago
When it comes to the Greek islands, postcard-perfect Santorini, with its stunning sunsets, volcanic beaches, white domed houses and views of the caldera and Aegean Sea, tops the bucket list for many. As a result, it’s home to some of the world’s best luxury hotels. Perhaps, it could be argued, too many. After all, with Booking.com currently offering more than 1,400 hotels in Santorini, including outposts from global names such as Nobu and Hyatt, alongside homegrown hospitality groups like Santo and Andronis (which lays claim to no fewer than five properties on the island), it would be hard to ..read more

Family jewels: The best bracelets for men
Luxury London
by Luxury London
6h ago
The last few years have seen somewhat of a U-turn in the realm of men’s jewellery. Where once any man worth his salt wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything other than a wristwatch or basic silver cuff (save the subtle signet or sovereign ring, or, at a push, a crucifix dangling from a simple chain a la David Beckham), recently the lines of gender-specific accessorising have blurred, ushering in a new era of blokes in bling. Of course, this is nothing new. Rings have been in for decades, and even dads who consider themselves the most masculine of masculine men were rocking chains in the late ..read more

While you may not have heard of Studio Alexandra, those in London’s creative circles certainly have.

Small but definitely mighty, then.  Sift through Childs’ portfolio and you’ll see her work spans country estates, from a warm textural shepherd’s hut in Essex to the renovation of Glebe House in Devon – including a guest ..read more

The best members’ clubs in Kensington & Chelsea
Luxury London
by Luxury London
11h ago
The capital’s most affluent neighbourhoods are oft dismissed by consummate Londoners as merely destinationd for over-excited tourists en route to Harrods and noisy school children off for a day out at the Natural History Museum. But nestled alongside the area’s Michelin-starred restaurants and white stucco townhouses are some of the city’s finest private members’ clubs. And, whether you’re looking for a quiet enclave to conduct your latest business deals or a rip-roaringly good night out, Kensington and Chelsea are more than happy to oblige. From late-night revelry to a Russian Banya in the Ro ..read more

Sustainably shod: The best vegan trainer brands to shop now
Luxury London
by Luxury London
11h ago
Vegan trainers haven’t always had the best rep. Like most things plant-based, they were once considered alternative, fringey and, frankly, not exactly chic. But, thankfully, times have changed since hemp shoes came in any colour – as long as it’s beige. Thanks to the advent of movements like Veganuary and Meat-Free Monday, as well as growing awareness of the impact of livestock rearing on the environment, veganism has never been more mainstream, with the number of people in the UK identifying as vegan quadrupling to 600,000 between 2015 and 2019. Of course, when it comes to fashion ..read more

Shady lady: The best sun hats for women

Whether you’re sailing the Mediterranean, indulging in some R&R in the Maldives or simply taking a stroll around Holland Park, no sun worshipper worth their salt should be seen without a stylish hat to avoid sun damage and score some serious style points. While sunglasses and potent sun creams (SPF50 is de rigueur these days) are certainly non-negotiables in your summer routine, the best sun hats go a long way in shielding your skin, eyes and scalp from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays. But let’s pause for a moment to clarify: if the word ‘hat’ tends to conjure images of over-the-t ..read more

The best restaurants in the City of London
Luxury London
by Luxury London
1d ago
There was a time, not too long ago, when restaurants in the City of London would pack up shop after Friday dinner service and remain closed until the working breakfast crowd reappeared on Monday morning. The beating heart of London’s all-important financial industry, packed with glass skyscrapers, harried commuters and very little in the way of cultural institutions, was not viewed as somewhere any rational person would want to spend their leisure time. Well, no longer. With the hip bars, restaurants and galleries of Shoreditch creeping their way west towards Liverpool Street, the reinvigorati ..read more

Hair sun protection: The best SPF products for silky summer locks

Every beauty aficionado knows that SPF is non-negotiable. As well as packing a high-powered sun cream when you go on holiday, if you’re looking to maintain youthful, radiant skin well into the future, as well as avoiding the well-known medical consequences of too much sun, you should be religiously applying an SPF moisturiser every morning as well. But what about your hair? If you’re lucky enough to have spent some time on a beautiful beach recently, you’ll probably have noticed your locks became drier and less manageable after a few days in the sun. The reason for this is twofold. Firstly, ex ..read more
