Our inspiring weekly roundup of new and notable gifts, experiences, products and property.

Annabel's X Swarovski
It is a quintessential meeting of two brands who love nothing more than glamour and glitz. This year Annabel's and Swarovski have come together to create a show - and traffic - stopping festive façade on the members' club in Berkeley Square. ‘Dressing’ the elegant townhouse for the first ever time, Swarovski has draped the storied building in a cornucopia of candy canes, icing and confectionery – all good enough to eat, though sadly for Instagram only. annabels.co.uk; Swarovski.com

Alpine Beauty Tom Ford Set
Inspired by the glacial sunsets of St Moritz, Tom Ford's limited edition Soleil Neige cosmetics range features an eyeshadow quad comprised of pink-hued neutrals and burnished metallics. Layer shadows to create effects from a subtle glow to a striking smokey eye. The collection also includes a Sunlit Rose lip balm.
From £44. Harveynichols.com

Levan, Peckham
The platonic ideal of a neighbourhood restaurant, Levan is already a Peckham institution having only opened in 2018. What makes this friendly south London wine-bar so special is how it blends flamboyant flavours with an inventive wine list, rare disco curios on the soundtrack and a fun, relaxed crowd - it feels spiritually more like the late great Schiller's Liquor Bar in New York rather than anything on this side of the Atlantic. The tasting menu is sensational: crunchy Comté fries with saffron aioli, zingy pickled mackerel with kohlrabi, unctuous cow’s curd agnolotti with monks beard - and best paired with whatever 'wine investigator” Mark Gurney recommends. On a recent visit, in one sublime moment A Taste Of Honey came on the stereo, ponzu-powered salmon delighted and the funky Sylvaner surprised: perfection.

Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up Speaker
With multi-hyphenate Virgil Abloh in charge of menswear, it was only a matter of time before the luxury house unleashed a musical collaboration. Inspired by the Toupie bag from Nicolas Ghesquière's’s 2019 collection, the Horizon is a wireless 360 degree speaker encased in embossed leather with monogram pattern. In short order: it is an artwork, a conversation piece, a digital disco and your perfect travel companion.
