New Year, New Look

It is essential to start the new year with a new look. Natasha Dury is loving the gifting ideas from Givenchy that should cover you for a different look this season.

ALCHEMY BY GIVENCHY

Gold is deeply rooted in the origins of Givenchy beauty. Pure, dazzling gold, which Hubert de Givenchy used to encase the very first lipstick he imagined in 1989. In doing so, he began a dialogue with light, which went on to become an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the Maison.

For the Holiday 2021 collection, Givenchy wishes to pay tribute to this golden genesis, to create the most Couture products in existence. Spanning from rosy champagne tones to more assertive coppery shades, Givenchy has explored all the facets of gold in the form of matte, satin and metallic textures. Formulas are presented in limited-edition luxurious and exclusive golden boxes adorned with intense black velvet.

PRISME LIBRE HIGHLIGHTER Limited edition

The season’s must-have is Prisme Libre Highlighter No. 10 Organza Or, which is presented in a unique case with a mirrored lid for easy touch-ups, no matter where you may be.

Givenchy unveils an exclusive and limited-edition creation, Prisme Libre Highlighter. Two loose powders in harmony leave the complexion instantly fresh and light for a radiant and festive glow. Its two pink and golden shades merge to capture and reflect even a glimmer of light, while its soft-focus pigments fuse with the skin to magnify and sculpt the complexion, cleverly highlighting where the light hits naturally with no build-up effect.

PRISME LIBRE Limited edition

Prisme Libre, Givenchy’s iconic loose powder quartet, is given a new and universal harmony of shades: No. 11 Sparkling Lilac. The first ever ultraviolet complexion enhancer. The perfect chromatic balance of Prisme Libre Sparkling Lilac can sublimate all skin tones: its bluish nuances freshen and unify the complexion, while its pink tones revive radiance.

LE ROUGE Limited editions

Givenchy presents its iconic lipstick in a new gold and black velvet case. Two shades of Le Rouge are treated to this unique limited- edition design. First, the most emblematic shade of Le Rouge Deep Velvet: No. 37 Rouge Grainé, a Couture crimson that dresses the lips in a powerful matte colour in just one coat. Then, a unique variant of Le Rouge: No. 501 Copper Nude, a satin, rosy nude with coppery glints, made even more exceptional with the profusion of 4G logos engraved on its bullet.

LE 9 DE GIVENCHY Limited edition

Nine richly pigmented eyeshadows, three finishes (matte, satin, metallic) and a multitude of possibilities… Givenchy presents 9.07, a versatile palette infused with golden and pink undertones that enriches the Le 9 eyeshadow line for one limited edition.

The bronze, golden, brown and pink tones work together instinctively and in perfect harmony to enhance the radiance of the eyes. Both sensory and highly concentrated in pigments, their texture glides delicately over the eyelids, dressing them in powerful shades that last 12 hours without creasing.

Timeless Elegance

The Langham, London

Shereen Shabnam

London is always a good idea for a holiday and selecting the right hotel depending on what you want to do in the city. On my top three favourites for hotels in London is The Langham. Creating exceptional guest experiences since it opened as Europe’s first grand hotel in 1865, The Langham, London continues to enhance its offerings more than 150 years later.

My favourite activity at the hotel is try an afternoon tea while people watching as it is indeed a hotel that gives you the best of history, luxury and a regal vibe that leaves one with a sense of gratification.

The exquisitely appointed guest rooms and suites are classically styled and evokes a warm residential feel with renowned service that bears the hallmarks of the hotel’s rich heritage that spans three centuries.

The rooms at The Langham are exquisite. The Terrace Suite vaunts imposing views of bustling Regent Street and beyond with its extensive balcony perched on the hotel’s fifth floor. This unforgettable suite, with separate lounge and bedroom, is ideal for longer stays. The airy space fits up to three guests between the bedroom’s king bed and living room, and additional beds are available upon request.

Brimming with comforts for the discerning traveller, the suite includes a full-size work desk, the Langham Blissful Bed, marble bathroom with separate shower and bath, and a bottle of chilled bubbles upon arrival.

Guests in the room will want for nothing thanks to butler service to assist with personal requests such as unpacking suitcases, colour-coding your wardrobe, or organising bespoke itineraries and 24-hour full-service in-room dining.

Bathed in a refined colour palette of regal jewel tones and soft neutrals, summer’s light pours through the terrace’s glass doors into the suite’s living area, creating one of the best destinations for a getaway for families or special occasions.

Palm Court is famed as the birthplace of the afternoon tea tradition, an indulgent ritual that continues today. Artesian is a glamorous bar designed by the acclaimed late David Collins and is a social hub for chic Londoners conjuring up classic and innovative cocktails.

The Landau restaurant offers classically constructed dishes using the finest seasonal ingredients with a contemporary style of presentation. Chuan Spa is a pampering haven and is London’s first luxury hotel spa to incorporate the ancient principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine into its signature treatments and ambience.

The Langham, London was opened in 1865 by HRH The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), as Europe’s first “Grand Hotel”.  From the outset it boasted an unrivalled location at the top of Regent Street and this is still true today with an enviable address in the heart of the West End. And with incredible city views, the plush atmosphere of a grand hotel and Langham’s impeccable hospitality, guests can expect an unforgettable experience.
