A fresh new scent
Looking for a scent that will transport you to a place of calm? Loewe creates Cucumber. A scented candle conceived by creative director Jonathan Anderson and developed in collaboration with artisan perfumer Nuria Cruelles and global brand ambassador Leo Wu. He is well-known for his acting roles in Upcoming Summer (2021); My Country, My Parents (2021) and more. The Loewe Cucumber candle possesses an intense aquatic scent reminiscent of a ripe, just picked- up-from-the-yard cucumber, lit with fresh mint notes.

New place to shop
A trip to Italy should include a stop at Moschino’s new flagship store on Milan’s prime shopping street: Via della Spiga. The historical 18th- century Palazzo Pertusati building has been remodelled as the exclusive Spiga 26 creative hub. Covering two floors, inside the 380 sq m space balancing pure graphic lines and curves, Moschino’s baroque flair is highlighted by a series of bold decorative elements, transforming the shopping experience. The store carries womenswear, menswear, kid’s and accessories lines, all showcased in a new interior concept conceived by the architect Andrea Tognon.
