From a blockbuster exhibition to the collaboration to covet, here's what to have on your radar this month
... Gucci x Liberty
Two whimsical worlds collide in this petal-powered collaboration from London institution Liberty and Alessandro Michele's Gucci. With floral smock dresses, tailored suits, puffers and more, it's the dandy's dream and bang on trend.
... The Undoing, Sky Atlantic
The Big Little Lies writer cooks up a new HBO drama with an equally star-studded cast – Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant lead the dark and mysterious The Undoing which arrives on our screens this month.
... with Big Mamma Group's new delivery-only restaurant Napoli Gang
They lured us in with Gloria, they dazzled us with Circolo Popolare and now the group behind the stars of London's Italian restaurant scene have launched a new delivery-only venture Napoli Gang. Whilst pizzas and deserts are the stars of the show, there's also pasta, antipasti and sides on offer.
... in the Saks Potts Jimi coat
Channel the slick style of Copenhagen's fashion set with this warm hug of a coat from cult Danish brand Saks Potts. Crafted from sumptuous caramel-hued shearling with soft fringing at the edges, it's the elevated, more elegant sibling of the Penny Lane coat and our winner this season.
...Bruce Nauman at Tate Modern
Provocative, raunchy, uplifting, darkly funny; Bruce Nauman’s work is all of these. Visitors to Tate Modern will be able to draw their own conclusions about Nauman's work this month, with an exhibition showcasing the full range of his 50-year career through more than 40 artworks.
... the streets in Bottega Veneta rubber-trimmed Chelsea boots
Like them or not, flat, chunky boots are the reigning champion of footwear this season, and there's plenty of choice on which to invest in. This pair from Bottega Veneta will add edge to any look, and leave you feeling both comfortable and empowered.
... Inside Story by Martin Amis
A new release from one of the greatest writers of our day - Inside Story is billed as a novel, but is autofictional in the way it draws heavily on Amis' own life and the prominent figures within it.
... & Other Stories belted jumpsuit
Comfort is key when it comes to dressing this autumn, and this foam green one piece from & Other Stories requires minimal effort whilst packing a huge sartorial punch. Get yours before it sells out.
... to a never-before-heard Ella Fitzgerald Album
A never-before-heard stellar live recording from the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald is to be released this month. The Lost Berlin Tapes were recorded in March of 1962, and you can listen to a stunning first track here.
... A.P.C. x Catherine Deneuve
A.P.C. has collaborated with Nouvelle Vague darling and muse of Yves Saint Laurent, Catherine Deneuve. The actress and style icon was given free rein over the label’s workshop and fabrics, with Touitou inviting Deneuve to ‘express her vision of chic, touched with whimsy’.
... Isaac Beningson's The Ladies of Chiltern Street
Celebrated Marylebone bolthole Shreeji Newsagents has thrived on Chiltern street since 1982, recently reopening as a beautifully curated space for the cool and cultured. This month, London-based artist Isaac Beningson presents a body of work entitled 'The Ladies of Chiltern Street' within the space. Beningson says, 'As I have sat drinking coffee I have watched and observed the people of Marylebone, and in this exhibition I present some of my findings.'
... Cos candles
Playful, sculptural candles are having a moment (think the fluid twists of Lex Pott and the topsy-turvy colourways of Hay's pillars). We love these new contenders from Cos home, which would look great atop your coffee table, both lit and unlit.
An anticipated adaptation of the classic Daphne du Maurier novel Rebecca, starring Lily James, Kristin Scott Thomas and Armie Hammer arrives on Netflix this month.
... Axel Arigato Sunglasses
Slick, rectangular and with palpable '90s edge - this style from Axel Arigato's debut eyewear collection is selling like hot cakes. Coming in three colourways (black, tortoiseshell and marbled white) they're the best accessory for a spot of winter sun.
