This week, we’re packing our bags and making tracks for Paris. In our carry-on: CELINE’s perma-chic cat-eye shades, a travel-friendly pair of Prada slippers, plus the latest episode of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, downloaded on our devices for the journey.
Once we’ve arrived in the City of Light, it’s straight to our hotel – Cheval Blanc – followed by cocktails at Les Ambassadeurs, donning our favourite new frosting from Fenton’s Cocktail Collection.
BOOK THIS Cheval Blanc, Paris
Reimagined in the style of a Parisian residence, LVMH’s much-anticipated Cheval Blanc Paris (housed in the iconic La Samaritaine building) is now open. A special spot, captivating paintings, sculptures, and photographs can be spotted throughout; take note of the elevator installation by Thierry Dreyfus as you enter. As for the food, there are four restaurants inside the hotel, including big-hitter Plénitude. But the jewel of Cheval Blanc Paris’ crown is the Dior Spa Cheval Blanc Paris. With six individually designed treatment rooms, each themed by Dior – we love the astrology-themed, Bonne Etoile –, as well as an impressive 30m swimming pool and a Rossano Ferretti Salon, it’s the perfect place to carve out a little ‘me’ time.
SHOP THIS Limited Edition Cocktail Collection, Fenton
Check out these beguiling, one-of-a-kind cocktail rings from Fenton.

TRAVEL WITH THESE Slipper Travel Pouch, Prada
A plush pair of slippers is a necessity for any savvy traveller. Something simple yet sophisticated to slip on pre-dinner/ post-afternoon walkabout, like these ones from Prada. The classic black slider style is perfectly understated, making for a chic retreat for your feet. What’s more, this pair is oh-so portable, thanks to their nylon travel pouch embellished with gold-finish Prada lettering.
WATCH THIS The Morning Show, Apple TV
The second season of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, is back on our screens. Make a note in your iCals: the first of ten episodes dropped on Friday (17 September), with a new episode dropping each week. For those who would benefit from a recap, season one is already available on Apple, whilst murmurs of season two predictions include a major fallout between Alex (Aniston) and Bradley (Witherspoon).
WEAR THESE Edge Cat-eye Tortoiseshell Acetate Sunglasses, CELINE
Selecting the right pair of shades can be a daunting task, but it’s hard to make a sartorial misstep when CELINE eyewear is your starting point. A modern spin on a retro staple, this pair, made from tortoiseshell acetate in a distinct cat-eye shape, ticks all the right boxes. From morning laps of the park, to sundowners by the pool (check out our list of destinations to travel to this autumn), you can’t go wrong with these be-all-end-all shades.
