Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama


There’s no escaping the collab sweeping the fashion world: LV’s collaboration with the Japanese artist. Fashionistas sunbathe languidly on the bath sheet resulting from this colourful encounter.


Hublot x Nespresso

What else ?

The coffee brand has given its used aluminium capsules a second life for the past 7 years, developing new products in partnership with leading Swiss companies. Here for you, the Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin sustainable watch.

Longchamp x Fatboy


What’s on the “sunset beach” agenda for Longchamp women? The cheerful Lamzac® O pouffe, in colours to match her summer wardrobe. Sweep the foldaway beanbag until filled with air, seal it off, sit back, and relax.

The alternative beauty concept store and retro Spanish designer have produced the ultimate summer kit. 9 essentials in a striped pouch: facial mist and oil, sun cream, shampoo, multi-sticks palette, make-up remover oil...
