RSVP

With RSVP, what you see is what you get

 

And what you get is luxury, with a focus on quality (or “True Quality” as the co-founders Thomas Cerkevic and Jonathan Andrès like to call it). The name speaks to the brand’s French heritage as well as the crowd-funding-like business model that made them a success—designs were only produced, in limited batches of 100, once enough customers had pre-ordered them. The styles that made the cut? Clutches, zip pouches, billfolds, cardholders—these sleek and simple gems are handmade in France and Spain from a variety of rainbow-coloured, responsibly-sourced skins. They’re clean, with a touch of hardware and a golden number embossed by the artisan who made each piece (showing which of the 100 you got your hands on), so that the focus—the true focus—is RSVP’s impeccable craftsmanship. Yes, they may not be the flashiest, but that’s not the point. These one-handed wonders, exclusive to Holt Renfrew, are the constant companions you’ll never want to live without.

Royal Fern

Science meets the plant with staying power

 

The beauty world is always on the lookout for the next big ingredient. But while established brands are still innovating, the latest scientific breakthroughs are coming right from the source: Doctor Brands. Instead of working behind the scenes, medical professionals—like Royal Fern’s renowned German dermatologist Dr. Timm Golueke—are bringing their scientific expertise front and centre, and creating their own groundbreaking skin care, with incredible results.

Dr. Golueke’s research has captured the natural properties of the line’s resilient plant—moisture retention, resistance to pollution—combined with other natural ingredients, in the patented Royal Fern Complex. It’s an anti-aging powerhouse that prevents inflammation, stimulates collagen production, and evens out skin tone, all wrapped in minimalist packaging that smartly hides its wonders within. Just like the plant itself.

“Ferns are one of the oldest plants on Earth, the moisture-keeper of the woods. We took this and transferred it to skin care.”

Church’s

Step into history

 

Menswear is steeped in heritage and tradition, and while current trends may skew more casual than in the past, classic brands are still revered for their dedication to their craft and exquisite product. Take Church’s for example—established in 1873 in Northampton, Great Britain, and still making stylish and sturdy handcrafted shoes to this day. Pair your best bespoke suit up with polished-to-perfection black wing tips, or give your sneakers a rest and wear two-tone loafers with your favourite designer denim instead. Fashion will always keep marching forward and these shoes will be with you every step of the way.
