The holographic trend has been around a while now after it was debuted on the runway. Designers such as Stella McCartney, Jonathan Saunders, and Hugo Boss toyed with this trend in different ways; some went for the all-over glistening look, while others played with it in a more understated manner.
Of course I wanted a little of this futuristic, iridescent trend for myself. Not wanting to spend a lot on a piece of clothing that I probably wouldn’t get much wear out of, I decided to purchase a Kzeniya holographic clutch. Just a little holographic punch to update any outfit.
Qasr Al Sarab sits embedded in one of the largest sand deserts in the world, the Empty Quarter or Rub’ al Khali as it’s known locally.
Isolated from the outside world, the luxury Liwa Desert resort is perfect for some well deserved rest and relaxation. The drive is about an hour through the desert from the centre of Abu Dhabi. All of a sudden you see this in the midst of the sand dunes.
The reception area is quite stunning, it really feels as though you are in an ancient Arabian fortress.
The view from the terrace is pretty spectacular.
We were then taken on a journey through the windy maze of the hotel to our room.
Of course when you’re in the desert you need somewhere to cool off.
Jo Malone’s Red Roses is one of their all time classic scents. Launched in 1996, it’s a heady blend of seven exquisite roses, with crushed violet leaves and a hint of lemon. It sits at the heart of the brand and reinventing it for the 21st century was always going to be a challenge.
Charlotte Stockdale, the recently appointed Style Editor to the brand has taken 300 bottles of her favorite scent, Red Roses, and each limited edition bottle has been hand painted in neon and also engraved with its number. The stylist cites her love of neon (ignited 15 years ago by a pair of Sergio Rossi stilettos) and her mother’s rose garden as the inspirations behind the design.
£120 Only available in Selfridges London, Selfridges Manchester Exchange and Selfridges online.
