11th February 2022

For all those naysayers who bemoan the commercialisation of romantic connection: take 14th February off. Two years into a pandemic, it is time to celebrate those we love in style.


Fope Flex'It Vendome ring
Although they only opened their first flagship store outside of Italy in 2019, Fope have helped define international luxury for over 90 years. Made exclusively in Vicenza, this ring is made of 18 carat white gold with diamonds and a baguette cut ruby. Buy with confidence - the ring adjusts automatically to the sizing of your partner's finger.

Cutler & Gross 1386 Square Sunglasses
Combining English eccentricity, Italian craftsmanship with a touch of 1950s American elan, this eyewear in acetate points to brighter times ahead. Chunky and confident, yet also surprisingly light, there can be no finer pair for enjoying the international travel we have been denied for so long. 

Tom Ford Bitter Peach Eye Color Quad
Even by the standards of Ford himself, this is a cut above: a limited edition peach eye colour quad with some red carpet ready shades. Think bright and bold shimmering textures, with a lavish matte finish: as the world finally gets to celebrate again, this looks stunning.
