Diane von Furstenberg’s granddaughter takes the brand to a multigenerational audience, and the Plum Guide picks the best of for your travel rentals, and everything in between.
WEAR THIS TVF for DVF
Following in the well-heeled footsteps of her grandmother and Belgian fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg, Talita von Furstenberg presents her third and most decadent collection of TVF for DVF. The younger-leaning offering sets to introduce a new set of women, like von Furstenberg, to the multigenerational brand.
The collection features easy-breezy dresses, cardigans and jumpsuits in pale blues, pinks and peaches, sitting comfortably within the designer’s preference for pastels. Each piece is named after a dessert (think Cupcake mini dresses, Brownie bodysuits) and every garment builds on previous styles that came before it so customers know what to expect when it comes to size or shape.

WATCH THIS Emily in Paris
Dream apartment with a view on a leafy square, glitzy cocktails in haute couture dresses, bouquets of fresh roses, handsome Frenchmen kissing hands…Rarely have we seen so many clichés on the French capital since the Parisian episodes of Gossip Girl or The Devil Wears Prada. But we will take it.
Dropping on Netflix on 3 October, Emily In Paris, is the stylish new Netflix drama that fill the void left behind by Sex and the City (coincidentally, it’s made by the same teams behind SATC and The Devil Wears Prada). Excited? You should be.
In Emily in Paris, Lily Collins stars as an ‘ambitious 20-something marketing executive from Chicago’ who unexpectedly finds herself in Paris when her company acquires a French luxury marketing company and she’s sent to revamp its media strategy. As per Netflix, Emily ‘embraces her adventurous new life while juggling work, friends and romance.’
The series was filmed in September 2019 on location in Paris and there are 10 episodes at 30 minutes each. A very easy weekend binge watch.
WORKOUT HERE Jab Boxing
Jab by name, Jab by nature. Inspired by the late 60s and early 70s, new boxing gym JAB has taken inspiration from the Golden era of boxing. An era that brought this sport to life. An era where gloves became red and shorts became blues, yellows & greens. An era and style that will forever be nostalgic, classy and timeless.
The gym itself has a cool vibe with exposed brick walls, dark wood panelling and leather sofas with vintage fight posters lining the walls. The classes? 12 Rounds in 45min. One half is Bag-work, the other is Ground-work, cardio, bodyweight and resistance training, to give you a complete boxing session.
The changing rooms? Well stocked with products by some favourite brands: Bamford soap, Redken shampoo and GHD hair tools. It really is an uppercut above the rest.
STAY HERE The Plum Guide
This is a seriously impressive portfolio of fabulous holiday homes. The Plum Guide bills itself as the “Michelin Guide for Homes” as it picks from more than 25 different sites the world’s best vacation rentals, holiday homes, short-term lets and Airbnbs, then puts them into one site. Founded in London in 2015, the Plum Guide has set out to carefully curate an Airbnb for the rich and richer, putting each potential property through a 150-point test then rejecting 99 out of every 100.
Got higher standards? Plum Guide has the confidence to meet them.
