Hair Stylist Matthew Curtis teams up with Rosewood London Hotel

Hair stylist, Matthew Curtis, has been making his mark in the luxury hotel spa arena, in addition to the hair world, with his stand-alone award-winning flagship hair salon in Stratford Upon Avon and award-nominated hair retreat in Hoar Cross Hall Spa in Staffordshire.

Matthew has now developed the new Matthew Curtis boutique salon and in-room styling experience concept at ultra-luxury hotel, Rosewood London. Matthew’s love of creating new wearable looks for his fashion and salon clients is reflected in the new salon concept and unifies hair with a luxurious hotel experience.

Taking inspiration from the Orient Express and the decadence of high living, guests will be able to experience five-star hair treatments within Rosewood London’s renowned Sense spa.
For the ultimate in privacy and luxury hairstyling, the indulgent Matthew Curtis in-room styling experience is a must. With a uniquely adapted vintage leather trunk, all the modern elements of a hair salon are incorporated into a portable styling station so hotel guests can request personal hair appointments without leaving their room.

Blow Dry Cocktail Menu As well as featuring heavenly hair spa treatments, the new Matthew Curtis hair salon will also feature a luxury blow dry menu where guests can have their hair styled in the latest trends from the catwalks.

AWAYTOMARS: tearing up the rulebook and opening up the fashion industry

AWAYTOMARS ,the world’s first 100% user-created fashion brand, has been selected to join the Centre For Fashion Enterprise, an organisation supported by University of the Arts London, the British Fashion Council and the European Union.

Alumni of the scheme include J.W. Anderson, Simone Rocha and LVMH Prize winners Marques’Almeida.
 AWAYTOMARS will present its new collaborative collection in the first week of October at Lisbon Fashion Week. More than 500 people have already contributed to its creative conception online.

They host campaigns where anyone, regardless of their background, can submit an idea and get instant feedback from the community.
Sketches and ideas are sent online from members of the public and AWAYTOMARS then iterates them with the help of its online community to create eye-catching, collaborative fashion.

 Next, AWAYTOMARS works with technical experts to create physical prototypes, organises a crowdfunding campaign for each product, oversees the entire production process and finally hosts the finished item on its sales portal.

The most innovative and interesting concepts are selected by the community and a group of curators; these advance to the next phase - crowdfunding - where each item runs as an individual campaign.
Backers have the opportunity to support the designers by pre-ordering pieces at wholesale prices

 All successfully funded designs are produced as a co-created item in a process overseen by technical experts at AWAYTOMARS.
These experts turn designers’ ideas into reality using their knowledge of fabrics and techniques and by calling on their relationships with producers in Europe.

 At AWAYTOMARS the community members are involved at every step of the design process: they decide what is ultimately produced.
Compared to traditional methods of product development in the fashion industry, AWAYTOMARS is cost and time effective: there’s no seasonality, nor is there inventory piling up in the stock room. Production is based on what has been pre-sold during the crowdfunding campaigns.
 AWAYTOMARS also proposes a new sales model to reward collaboration, in which profits are shared between both the original designers and any community members who provided significant input to shape the item.

Lisa Riley wears Lavitta

Direct link is:


This is the first capsule that the American actress has worked on with modern British heritage brand Belstaff, to which she is Ambassador and Creative Contributor.

 “I’d always wanted to create a few timeless classics. Things I have in my closet but wished I designed myself,” says Liv Tyler. “I sought to express strength through the outerwear and leather pieces alongside a more feminine sensual side through the softer materials like silk, and via the more fitted silhouettes of my styles. It’s a celebration of the feminine and masculine rolled into one.”

 A fine leather jacket with a removable collar and a quilted interior is contrasted with blush pussy-bow blouses and fitted under-the-knee riding boots.

A new, more fitted take on the Milford (the coat Belstaff originally created for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock) has been created in three fabrications, while two nylon parkas come with removable shearling gilets.

New technical fabrications for Belstaff include a protective coated treatment and water-repellent cotton and a lightweight nylon.
 “I have a preference for clothes that are practical and functional but also very luxurious and elegant. I like being able to throw a look together quickly and feel and look my best. I know what works for me and my body, and I try to stick to that” adds Tyler.

The 13 style capsule is available now from Belstaff stores, select department stores and independents and on

A good part of the collection is made up of outerwear in a nod to Belstaff’s foundations as a brand and to Liv’s own reliance on a great coat to pull a look together whilst adding “a touch of masculinity”. “When I think of Belstaff, I think of great coats that last a really long time and get better and better with age,” adds Liv, who despite the time she spent in the company archive, ended up focusing on the future: “I wanted to create something fresh that every woman would want to add to her closet and keep for many years to come” she concludes.

 The capsule was shot on up and coming model Greta Varlese in Brooklyn’s Red Hook Docks, with Tyler art directing.

. Her second capsule with Belstaff will follow for Spring 17.
