Perfumer H Steps Into Spring

Perfumer H has bottled up the fresh fragrance of spring with its new eau de parfum, Dandelion, which launched across the globe just yesterday. Optimistic and untamed, the scent captures memories of founder Lyn Harris’s childhood – think long afternoons outdoors in the sun – transporting us, like a dandelion tuft in the wind, to a place of youthful possibility. The typical modern fern fragrance of basil and Italian mint leaf – a must have for the changing seasons – is softened by the dreamy depths of sandalwood and refreshed by top notes of Sicilian lemon, Tunisian orange flower and Italian mandarin. Delectable!

Dandelion is accompanied by a hand-crafted Dandelion Tea blended with jasmine green tea and matcha in collaboration with Tim D’Offay of Postcard Teas, London, who carefully selected rare varieties from small tea growers around the world. Afternoon tea in sun here we come! Shop here.

Jean Paul Gaultier Is Teaming Up With Shayne Oliver

Jean Paul Gaultier loves a good collab. Next up on its roster is Hood By Air and Anonymous Club founder Shayne Oliver whose been tasked with designing a collection that he’s dubbed ‘GLTR Sportswear’. Unlike the extravagant gowns of the Met Gala, which will take place May 6 this year – the same day the collection drops – the duo isn’t looking to create one-time-wear couture, but rather, a ready-to-wear capsule for the modern everyday wardrobe. Comprising around 50 pieces, the garments will critique common clothes of our day fusing high fashion and streetwear, recalling ’90s French fashion punctuated with modern principles of femininity and power. This will include bumsters, gauzy goodies, wide-leg denim and the imaginary logos of GLTR Sportswear. The collection will interrogate and critique modern fashion codes to create looks you can wear from red carpet to your post glam unwind.

Corbin Shaw’s Fred Perry Capsule

Whether you’re leaving school or wearing aftershave for the first time, the Corbin Shaw x Fred Perry collection narrates the complexities of masculine youth in all its forms through the looking glass lens of Shaw’s Sheffield upbringing.

For him, “Fred Perry is the one brand that feels truly a part of my growing up” according to the Fred Perry website, and so his designs, which explore the rites and rituals of British youth, feel perfectly paired with the renowned polo.

The navy ‘Dear Sheffield Shirt’ captures that confusion of first love through its combination of typefaces. From the romantic love poem scrawled across the left arm and back, to the bold type face on the front of the shirt, the piece snares that soppy vulnerability we all try to hide. Whilst the ‘Ash Blue Leavers Shirt’ recalls the excitement of the last day of school with signatures scribbled across what looks like any old favourite sports jersey.

Side by side, the pieces feel like a pair of siblings and seem to capture the intricacies and freedom of youth, whilst staying true to the landmark polo – perfect for tapping into your inner child or for heading out on the town. Shop here.
