Loved by make-up experts and celebrities alike, Giorgio Armani’s iconic everyday base has returned after a two-year hiatus. A lightweight foundation that’s as easily applied with fingers as it is a brush, its natural matte, velvety finish has earned it 'second skin' status. Delivering just the right amount of coverage, Face Fabric can be applied as an all-over base or just in areas that need refining due to its blurring effect, making it a stellar choice for the transition into spring.
Top Picks: The Skincare Switch
Switch up your skincare with three targeted formulas. Refresh skin with Omorovicza’s acid serum, created with AHAs and BHAs to remove dead skin cells and reveal a smooth texture, cool and calm dry winter complexions with La Mer’s reformulated Cool Gel Cream and enter night-time recovery with La Prairie’s rejuvenating potion, which encourages skin’s natural detox process and infuses skin with essential nutrients for a more youthful appearance.
In The Spotlight… YSL Le Vestiaire Des Parfums: Couture Edition
Inspired by three pertinent locations in Paris, Le Vestiarie: The Couture Editions are the latest luxurious fragrances from the house of Yves Saint Laurent: a trio of unisex scents, all dark and brooding in heart but with modern, unexpected twists – and all exclusive to Harrods.
24 Rue De L’Université: Creamy sandalwood, soft suede and a heart of cedar play homage to the calm, creative hub of the YSL brand: the 17th century studios where fashion collections are imagined and created. A woody fragrance with a twist of the unexpected conjures up a world centred around legacy, with a playful, daring edge.
37 Rue De Bellechasse: The sacred site of Saint Laurent’s new headquarters, the former Abbey de Penthemont, has inspired a fragrance evoking religiousness, with notes of oud, incense and benzoin. The scent is then offset with a softness from iris and sensuality from musk, reflecting openness where high fashion has replaced religious services.
6 Place Saint Sulpice: One of Saint Laurent’s oldest boutiques – yet home to the very latest collections – is imagined in a fragrance of woody notes and leather accord, with a distinct smokiness from the pine-like, peppery labdanum, combined with hazelnut, created to mirror the boutique’s strong visual identity. There are softer top notes from saffron, bergamot and lavender to signify the bringing of new concepts, all enveloped by the smooth, luxurious-smelling tonka bean.
