The Launch Event - Key Moments
Last week, we celebrated the launch of our pop up with a VIP shopping night,
with thanks to Perrier Jouet for the libations and Little Wolf Catering for the divine platter.
Those who have already visited our pop up may have also noticed a shiny accessory that's a little larger than those we usually have in stock...
Within our pop up we feel very fortunate to have what is possibly the rarest rare artefact we have ever had on display - a beautiful piece of history that is worth coming in to view alone.
Car 'two' of the Jaguar XKSS continuation currently sits in the foyer and will remain in store with us for the duration of our pop up.
For those interested in the history lesson, 1957, Jaguar launched the XKSS as a road-going version of the Le Mans-winning D-Type racer. Jaguar had planned to have 25 manufactured in total, but only 16 were made before the factory was destroyed in a fire.
In 2017, Jaguar Classic embarked on a special project to create the outstanding 9 cars, exactly to the specifications of the original 1957 model, bar a safer, stronger fuel tank and more modern battery.
Though it is officially car 'two' of the collection on display, it is actually the first one to have been completed.
A perfect marriage of old and new, the Jaguar XKSS has been kindly loaned to us on behalf of Michael Giltrap to Love and Object, in celebration of the Design55 Holiday Pop Up experience.
See you soon, lovers.
Alongside cosy wines by the fire, romantic rainy evening dates and, most excitingly, ski-season, with the incoming cold season comes new opportunities to think outside the box when it comes to dressing.
As the temperature continues to drop, we've been looking to sartorial inspiration which has us reaching for our jewellery box just as much, if not more so than we do during the warmer months.
For us this winter it's all about layering, embellishing and making the most of our favourite accessories in new and unexpected ways. If you're in need of a little inspo this season, take a look at our a round up of looks that have caught our eye recently below... xMORE
Over the past year we have had the pleasure of staying at The Britten Stables n Christchurch a number of times - our accomodation of choice whenever visiting our Cantabrian stockists and holding our vintage trunk shows. In time, we've been lucky to get to know the gorgeous owner of the landmark location, Isabelle Weston.
Running the space is a full time job in itself and now with two gorgeous girls in tow, Adaline and Raphaela, we were thrilled when Isabelle kindly agreed to spend a few minutes with us to chat with us about the restoration, her approach to style, and how she's been dealing with life's big changes over the last few months, just in time for Mother's Day...
Back in February, we were lucky enough to be treated to a private viewing of Penny Calder's spectacular vintage magazine collection - an incredible library which includes every single edition of British Vogue since 1950.
Read on to learn about how Penny got into collecting, the most standout jewellery campaigns over the years, her thoughts on the state of the magazine industry at large, and her favourite cover of all time...MORE
