If this week’s CF Hotlist reads a little like a Christmas wish list, do forgive us.
We swear we’re not dropping present hints (however, mum/ Santa/ some other generous gal or gent, if you are reading this: items one through five would be very gladly received).
But we digress… Here’s what’s on our radar at CF in our hotlist this week.
SHOP THIS Esquivel x The Beverly Hills Hotel
Accessories designer George Esquivel’s second collaboration with The Beverly Hills Hotel comes just in time for the holidays. The SoCal native has created an exclusive capsule collection of bags inspired by the beloved hotel’s iconic palm print (created by CW Stockwell in 1942) – available for purchase store at the hotel and online. Choose from three bags including an overnight duffel bag, a coated canvas tote, and a canvas tote – ideal for on the go or weekend getaways. All styles are available with pink trim (if you’re feeling punchy) or a subtle look, tan trim and accents (for the more understated amongst us).
BOOK THIS The Duxton Reserve Singapore
The Duxton Reserve Singapore reopened its doors on December 11th, 2020, under the signature of Anouska Hempel Design. Since then, we’ve found ourselves flicking through the hotel’s gallery images on more than one occasion. Strong hues of black, gold, and yellow, layered with Oriental screens and calligraphy wallpaper from Anouska Hempel’s own collection abound in the heritage hotel’s revamp – nodding to Hempel’s designs for Blake’s London. Of all the rooms on offer, The Opium Room is our number one, for its dramatic jet-black surrounds, complete with seductive black four-poster Chinese platform beds.
ORDER THIS Quilted Velvet Throw, TOAST
These great, big, cosy blankets are useful for any number of occasions. Hand quilted, soft and lustrous cotton velvet, with a pure linen reverse, not only will it look great with any décor – it’s a couch side must to ensure the cosiest Netflix marathons ever. We’ve fallen hard for the TOAST throw, which feels like a hug that envelops, relaxes, and soothes the body. With this luxey number close at hand (be it at the end of your bed or top of the pile in your living room), the prospect of hunkering in until January 2nd just got a whole lot plusher.
WATCH THIS The Prom
Hot on the heels of Ryan Murphy’s highly acclaimed Netflix show Ratched, comes The Prom, in a joyous reimagining of a Tony-nominated musical. A set of down-on-their luck Broadway stars – Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Kerry Washington et al – travel to Indiana to support a teenager (Jo Ellen Pellman) who is banned from taking her girlfriend (Ariana DeBose) to prom. A screening that’s sure to put you in a good mood (even if a little slow to start), your toes will be tapping the time the credits roll – guaranteed.
SHOP THIS Suzannah London X Susannah Garrod
British luxury brand Suzannah London’s collaboration with British illustrator Susannah Garrod has us feeling rather festive. Susannah Garrod is known for her whimsical drawings, which evoke the feelings of vintage illustrations, and in this iteration – splashed across The Tilda Bows Blouse – they really shine. The long-line top comes in the prettiest bow print, complete with a neat mandarin collar – boasting a chic (detachable) necktie that reads pretty and polished. The scarf can be tied in a pussy bow or more simply. Style with simple tailored trousers.
