Five things you'll want to shop, see, and admire this week.

1. A campaign celebrating a signature 'it' bag

Ella Richards.

A Burberry staple, the coveted ‘Lola’ bag is a soft silhouette with a sleek chain strap. “Lola, at the very core, embodies an attitude – she is strong, sensual and intelligent all at once”, says Burberry’s chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci.

To celebrate the sophisticated identity of the Lola bag, Burberry has released a campaign starring Bella Hadid, Lourdes Leon, Jourdan Dunn and Ella Richards, an ensemble of evocative women who personify the ‘it’ bag’s attitude.

Since its inception, the Lola bag has evolved into many silhouettes (including bucket bags and satchels) and is available in classic neutral and vivid, eye-catching colourways.

2. A new flagship to visit

Designer Boh Runga in her new retail space.

Boh Runga Jewellery has opened the doors to its brand new boutique on Ponsonby Road, a short walk from its former brick and mortar location. 

The space was created by interior designer Shelley Ferguson, marking the start of a new design territory for the loved jewellery brand. 

Offering a hybrid digital-brick-and-mortar way to shop, ‘Pick N Mix’ iPad stations are positioned in the boutique, allowing customers to create and order bespoke earring designs in-store. 

Visit the Boh Runga flagship store at 287 Ponsonby Road. 

3. An elegant update to your watch wardrobe

The Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31 in azzurro blue.

Rolex has unveiled the latest creations in its ‘Oyster Perpetual’ collection, a spectacular selection of timepieces with enhanced aesthetics and technologies that push watchmaking boundaries. 

Highlights include the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 31, which features a striking floral-motif dial, and is available in an azzurro blue, olive green, and silver. 

The new Datejust 31 models are equipped with calibre 2236, a movement at the forefront of watchmaking technology that enables them to display the hours, minutes, seconds, and date.

4. Treat your eyes with a luxurious potion

If the area around your eyes is feeling particularly delicate or fragile, the brand known for its skincare innovations has formulated a transformative new product, the Dr. Lewinn’s ‘Intensive Action Caviar Eye Serum’. 

The serum is said to improve the eye area in just seven days, harnessing peptides, caviar extract and hyaluronic acid to accelerate brightening, reduce puffiness, and fight the signs of ageing. 

Serums penetrate the skin more quickly and potently than creams, so the latest from Dr. Lewinn’s is a considered way to care for your under-eye area, particularly if full-face treatments have been receiving all the limelight of late.

Discover the Intensive Action Caviar Eye Serum at selected pharmacies nationwide and online at drlewinns.co.nz.

5. A gorgeous sangria-style rum

Whether you enjoy it on its own or as the base for a jug of  Sangria, the delightful new ‘Cinco Sangria Rum’ (which is just as warming as it is refreshing) is a prime tipple for farewelling summer. 

A small-batch collaboration between boutique spirits brand Honest and natural wine brand Unkle, white rum is blended with a fruity pinot noir, resulting in flavourful bursts of orange peel, apple, cherries and oranges with a hint of dark chocolate. 

Inspired by Honest’s quest to create new taste experiences, the rum is a limited-edition run of just 500 bottles, so get in quick.
