From body sculpting leggings (to wear everywhere), to pieces to pack in your holiday wardrobe (that make people stop and ask), this is what we’re loving in this week’s Citizen Femme hotlist.
A hidden London rooftop you wish you knew earlier and your next weekend getaway, bookmark this now.
EAT HERE Sparrow Italia, Mayfair
Bringing the Italian coast to Mayfair, Sparrow Italia is the latest dining concept from Noble 33 bringing a modern menu of Italian and Mediterranean dishes across three floors and a newly launched rooftop terrace serving cocktails and aperitivos all summer. Expect a focus on fresh seafood, house-made pasta, and a selection of Italian classics that exude bold flavours and high-quality, sustainable, and organic ingredients. The intimate 20-seater rooftop named Sparrow Nest offers guests an optimal viewpoint to enjoy the city whilst dining al fresco and savouring a bespoke dining and wine and spirits menu. Dolce far niente. Gemma Louise Deeks.
SHOP THIS Hannah Artwear
August holidays call for updated suitcase essentials. But we’re not about fast fashion, we’re looking to pieces that make people stop to ask. From strokes to stitches, Australian brand HANNAH ARTWEAR’s Holiday ’23 collection combines hand mixed and hand dyed colour on natural fabrics by artisans in India. Hand embroidery and hand beading reinterprets Indian lotus motifs, and hand crochet takes on a new life, showcasing the true craft of the artisan through individually constructed patchwork. Beautifully wearable cardigan coats and statement dresses, to cotton voiles and linens, across dresses and separates, gives you everyday ease for your holiday wardrobe taking you seamlessly from day to night.
GO HERE The Jazz Cafe
While The Jazz Cafe is a mecca in London to see not only iconic performers, it also presents emerging talent and the forthcoming season presents a packed out, all killer schedule, performing for the first time in the UK. The game changing international artists making their UK debuts this season include the sensational Durand Bernarr who has earned his stripes working alongside Grammy Award-winning artists Erykah Badu and Kaytranada; Aboriginal Australian singer Thelma Plum; and five-strong Swiss collective Sirens Of Lesbos will share their socio-politically minded, cosmically-beautiful music. It’s a full calendar worth perusing for a memorable night out in one of London’s most creative neighbourhoods.
VISIT THIS Dior x Capri Palace Jumeirah
Brands are taking over summer hotspots and adorning in them in their own prints for the hot list of jetsetters to take seat. Wrapped around Anacapri’s rocky cliff that plunges into the azure waves of the Gulf of Naples, Capri Palace Jumeirah’s Il Riccio is a celebrity hot spot for renown for its Mediterranean cuisine and chic vibe. For the fourth year running, iconic French fashion house Dior transforms the island’s restaurant and beach club Il Riccio into a sanctuary of fashion. The takeover has seen the seafood haven decorated in Toile de Jouy patterns and installations, accompanied by a pop-up boutique showcasing Dioriviera, the timeless capsule collection. Available exclusively until summer’s end, the collection has been designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director of Dior women’s haute couture, ready-to- wear and accessories collections.
WEAR THIS Vuori BlissBlend™
Gym leggings are not only essential for a comfortable workout but have become a pillar of our daily wardrobe. Vuori’s buttery soft and breathable leggings are sculpting and flattering, as well as feeling airy and weightless too. But their new Vuori BlissBlend™ fabric ups the leggings game. What makes them so special? The newest sets are made of 75% recycled materials with a Lycra fiber, a performance stretch-knit which moves with you and supports you as you work out or move around doing your daily errands. With the motto “built to move and styled for life, ” you can live out your Cali-girl life wearing these.
