Top 5 current Illamasqua Head Office obsessions....
1. Kiki De Montparnasse Scented Candles
These all-natural candles are just lovely. We currently have 'Boudoir' burning at HO - I am not sure of the actual ingredients as I have checked the packaging and the website for a list, but I do know that it smells woody, earthy and very addictive. Plus, how gorgeous is the packaging?!
2. The Gossip - Music for Men
The latest album from Beth Ditto and her band, this is a real screamer of an album! Definitely worth checking out.
3. PPQ Laptop bags for Vodafone
Based on the very chic Gabriel bag, this elegant offering from PPQ is exclusive to Vodafone - I love the deep red croc-print and the size that will take you from office to bar. Seriously coveting one of these babies right now! Check here for more info.
4. Collette Dinnigan Autumn/ Winter RTW collection
A dark collection with a nod to the gothic trends that are set to be reignited next season, this was a beautiful collection full of dramatic but very wearable pieces that showcased intricate detailing and a playful mix of textures.
5. Nail Varnish in 'Loella'
I recently discovered how this product got it's name! Loella is the name of Guillaume Vappereau's [the celebrated hairdresser] daughter Loella, who is also Maurice [our HR manager's] Goddaughter! Loella is just such a lovely name for a shimmering bubble gum pink Nail Varnish, don't you think?
** Thanks to Marcio Madeira for the Collette Dinnigan image and to thenailphile for the Loella swatch! **
