TRY THIS Delicious Rhubarb & Rose, Molton Brown

Shift your mindset to sunnier, brighter times with Molton Brown’s scents for summer. Created by senior perfumer Vanessa Prudent, Molton Brown’s Delicious Rhubarb & Rose is the perfect balance of freshness just in time for the summer season. Pouring her sensitivity and gentleness into this creation, Prudent’s pairing of classic and modern notes captures her childhood memories of baking. The Eau de Parfum features a signature note of juicy raspberry entwined with freshly picked lychee, tender peony, and a spicy kick of pink pepper. The fragrance draws to a close with a rich, cedarwood musk trail; ‘delicious’ is the perfect word to describe it.

BOOK THIS Yatay

Authenticity is paramount to a positive dining experiences. Walking around Chinatown (where YATAY is based) may make you think ‘tourist trap’, but take our word for it: this Japanese robatayaki restaurant and bar is a must-visit. Inspired by the new-age Izakayas of Tokyo and the street-food culture of Japan, the name ‘YATAY’ refers to small street vendors from which the restaurant takes its inspiration. Sultry in its design – think polished concrete and black steel juxtaposed with charred dark wood, decorated with contemporary large art works – take a pew at the bar and indulge in classic robatayaki skewers alongside raw dishes and salads, as well as small and large sharing plates. Feeling fancy-free? Take a gamble and opt for YATAY’s six skewer roulette where the kitchen picks for you. With options including trout with kizami wasabi, koji-cured lamb, beef with ginger pepper lime sauce, roasted shallot with miso, cured beetroot with garlic, and heirloom tomato with yuzu koji basil – you win every time regardless of outcome.

WEAR THESE Rainbow Brite Set Of Three, Roxanne Assoulin

SHOP THIS BOTEH Parasol Floral Print Maxi Dress, Exclusive To Browns Fashion

Australian resortwear label BOTEH is known for its elevated paisley prints and fluid silhouettes, which are perfect for the beach and beyond.

VISIT THIS Veronica Beard Store, Bruton Street, London 

 

American ready-to-wear brand Veronica Beard has just opened its first European retail store in London, bringing VB’s feminine style to the well-heeled shoppers of Bruton Street. The new store takes over a four storey, 18th-century townhouse, filled with the brand’s modern uniform of dickey jackets, expertly-cut denim, cool shirting, and effortless dresses. The store has been designed in partnership with interior designer, Carolina de Neufville, and is a true extension of the brand’s aesthetic – think bold leopard-print sofas, soft patterned upholstery, and blooming florals aplenty.
