In partnership with: Harvey Nichols
Was that it?! It feels like summer 2021 was over before it even began. Not to worry, though: Harvey Nichols has you covered with a host of chic eateries and beauty experiences to wipe away the memory of that dismal summer.
There is something profoundly comforting about the warm glow of the Harvey Nichols shop front on a drizzly day in Knightsbridge, and there are few pleasures greater than popping in for fortifications. The Café, found on the fifth floor, is the perfect sanctuary for intrepid autumn shoppers, offering European cuisine using the finest seasonal produce and served from an open kitchen. In celebration of Harvey Nichols’ new childrenswear department, The Café has introduced a kids’ menu, and kids eat free on Sundays.
Chilly weather wreaks havoc on your skin, so Harvey Nichols is offering an array of therapies and treatments to keep you looking radiant during the harsher months. Environ, for example, uses electro-sonic DF technology facials to target specific areas of concern – all Environ products are formulated by Dr Des Fernandes, a world-renowned plastic surgeon, to deliver measurable results over time. This is science-based skincare that feels like an utter treat.
La Prairie's treatments and skincare regimes are based on the heritage of the original Clinique La Prairie, an award-winning spa and health clinic built on the breathtaking shores of Lake Geneva. The luxury skincare house today formulates innovative products using the most premium ingredients, from caviar to platinum. Facials are bespoke and results-driven, with the aim of ‘not just adding years to life, but life to years’.
Sisley focuses on high-quality products, natural key ingredients and sensorial qualities to create its menu of treatments. The Initial Facial Treatment, for example, is a bespoke facial the employs phyto-cosmetology to leave skin refreshed, rejuvenated and sparkling. The Supremya Anti-Age Facial Treatment, meanwhile, includes a deep muscular massage ritual to stimulate collagen production and refine facial features. Sisley also offers customers an array of complimentary 5-20 minute facials – the perfect introduction to basic skincare application and massage techniques.
La Mer’s treatments are formulated with the enigmatic-sounding Miracle Broth – an ingredient ‘as essential to Crème de la Mer as the sea itself’. The skincare brand endows customers with various ‘looks’, such as ‘hydrated’, which is a glowing, plumped, post-spa appearance; ‘radiant’, achieved by stimulating microcirculation for a luminous glow; ‘lifted’, which creates the appearance of volume, fullness, and firmness; and ‘soothing’, an offering that supports the skin’s natural renewal process.
