tuneoftheweek_templateTaylor Swift – Out of the Woods

No one can stop this girl: she just released her new record 1989 which of course hit the number one stop nearly everywhere and her face is covering all the magazines. Certainly I am talking about Taylor Swift. Her new single Out of the Woods is one of her best tracks so far and therefore my tune of the week.

6a00e54ef96453883401bb07905044970d-800wiStella McCartney designed an all pink lingerie set to raise awareness for breast cancer. The line (including bra and matching briefs) is modelled by Stella’s favorite girl Kate Moss and the images were shot by Mert & Marcus.

A percentage of the profits will be donated to the Linda McCartney Centre in Liverpool, UK. But Stella McCartney also wants to remind women to “to keep on top of their health and visit their doctor regularly” when they put on the set first thing in the morning.
So ladies, do as she says!!!

Never has a good cause looked so sexy.

…and part of good style is an even better scent!

Diana Vreeland is a fashion icon and her legacy in the world of styling and editing is huge. The Vogue editor-in-chief of the 1960s who died in 1989 was not only famous for her dead-aim fashion knowledge but also for her witty comments and utterances (legendary is her column for Harper’s Bazaar called “Why Don’t You?).
Her grandson Alexander Vreeland now created five different scents to pay homage to Mrs Vreeland but also to emphasize her still noticeable influence.

Diane Vreeland always believed that you have to look impeccable at all times, even if you just cross the road to go grocery shopping. And part of that style were perfumes to her. She would always use it throughout the day and refresh herself with her favorite fragrances. She said: “Fragrances fill the senses with the mysterious”

The five different scents that honor Diana Vreeland are named after her five most popular phrases like ‘perfectly marvelous’ or ‘simply divine’. The first class ingredients include sandalwood, tuberose flower or patchouli.

Get the luxurious perfumes at Colette in Paris or Bergdorf Goodman in New York and fill your senses with the mysterious.

10616407_787023591348815_1318986442_nI have been writing about the raw food movement a couple of times on this blog. I don’t want to preach about it but it really something everyone should try out. The health aspect is not to ignore of course but it’s just so tasty and diverse.

A few years ago it was really difficult to find some raw food or vegan restaurants even in cities like London. Luckily, times have changed. For a few months now there is another wonderful addition to the raw food restaurant scene: Tanya’s Cafe in Chelsea.

Tanya Maher started by writing a blog about raw food (she prefers calling it ‘living food’), then she became a nutrition coach and an author of raw food cook books.
When she was offered the chance to open up her own restaurant she didn’t hesitate long. Simply called ‘Tanya’s Cafe’, the restaurant and bar offers an incredible menu of raw food and superfood cocktails.
You can get smoothies all day, raw food for lunch (lasagna, anyone?), but the real attraction are the cocktails, served after 4pm. These cocktails contain organic alcohol with healthy supplements such as fresh cherries, acai berry or maca powder. That’s why they are called superfood cocktails: they are added with the most nutrient-dense ingredients nature has to offer. So you’re after work drink is a health boost as well. What is not to like?

Processed with VSCOcam with b5 presetThe SET Tyler Leather Jacket is causing quite a sensation: already sold out after a few weeks in our online store and worn by many it-girls, celebrities and fashion bloggers this season. It’s quite easy to understand why it became such a sought after it-piece: the leather is super soft, the design timeless and casual yet edgy plus it can be worn with almost anything.
Due to high demand we restocked the Tyler Jacket and even give away one Tyler for a lucky winner! You can take part in our raffle here: http://goo.gl/QwmOKt

Good luck everyone.

Some great examples on how to style the jacket gives fashionista Maja Wyh, who just loves her Tyler. Check them out below.

final
The days are getting shorter, sunshine is rare, and we are already wearing our warm coats: winter is around the corner and we need to prepare: not just with the latest knitwear and stylish wool coats. Our skin also needs intensive care during these cold months (we do like heated rooms, our skin though does not!)

My favorite beauty products in this time are the following three. And you should not miss out on them:

Kiehl’s Intensive Treatment and Moisturizer for Dry or Callused Areas
This thick treatment is perfect to apply on really dry skin thanks to Avoca Oil and Shea Butter!

Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm
Skin-softening emollients soften your hands, the smell is divine and what’s best: you cannot overuse it! This is a must-have in your bag.

Rodin Olio Lasso
Creator Linda Rodin blends 11 essential oils for this famous face oil. Try it out and you instantly know why there is such a craze about it: it hydrates the skin while absorbing quickly. And I am addicted to the scent!

Grazia ShopeventA few weeks ago I blogged about the Zoé store opening in Hamburg, a beautifully designed luxury concept store where you can find SET as well.

To celebrate this cooperation between Zoé and SET we designed a special version of our famous and beloved Tyler Leather Jacket, exclusively for Zoé.
This is a big deal and obviously reason enough to party. Hence we teamed up with Grazia Magazine and threw a spectacular party last week at the store.

Lots of champagne, Teriyaki-Salmon and the most delicious cupcakes were served to the stylish crowd (including fashion bloggers, editors and publishers and of course SET people).

Enjoy some of the images and if you’re in Hamburg: check out this lovely store and get your hands on the limited Tyler for Zoé edition.

featuredImgTemp08What a great addition to London’s culinary scene:  Israeli restaurant the Palomar opened on Rupert Street in Soho.
Chef Assaf Granit already has a place in Jerusalem, which is my favorite restaurant in the city, called Machneyuda. It is the best place to have a fantastic dinner in town.

You can imagine how happy I am that from now on I can always enjoy this near to perfect fusion of Jewish, Mediterranean and Arabic food and atmosphere in London too. What I love most about the Machneyuda is the contemporary approach to traditional dining with the cooks interacting with the hungry crowd, the chefs downing shots in between and loud music to complete this extraordinary experience.

Now back to the Palomar: the entrance is impressive: the bar runs the entire length of the restaurant and the kitchen is open (for previously mentioned reasons).
With Granit being the head chef you can choose no wrong on the menu, whether it is Polpo á la Papi, Labenah tortellini or a deconstructed kebab.

The Palomar provides the authentic Machneyuda experience in central London. What a gain for the city!
