recently had a fashion epiphany and it was inspired by Club. A couple of months ago, my deputy editor, Vanessa, interviewed the inspirational Caryn Franklin of howtolookgood.com – the expert of all experts on how to dress for your body shape. I read the article with interest but didn’t take it further than that. Then, a couple of weeks ago, an online shopping spree went horribly wrong and I landed up with a pair of jeans I couldn’t even squeeze my big toe (let alone a leg) into and a cocoon-shaped coat that drowned my whole frame. Hugely annoyed with myself, I googled Caryn’s website, downloaded the free e-book and settled down to read it. Wow! It was amazing to realise I’d been buying clothes to satisfy an emotional impulse rather than as a functional tool. As a result, I have set aside my trendy must-buys for my daughters (they will thank me one day) and now my wardrobe only contains a mix ‘n’ match ensemble of clothes that truly fit and flatter my body. Funnily enough, I don’t miss what I’ve no longer got. Plus, I’m enjoying slowly adding new items to my cupboard. I hope this season is as satisfying for you from a style perspective and, as always, I hope that Club has something to do with it. Happy shopping!

Kiehl’s Original Musk Blend No 1 Eau de Toilette (50ml), R480 (Exclusive to Edgars)
NARCISO RODRIGUEZ With an enduring passion for musk, this ladieswear designer is famous for creating ranges that celebrate women “Latin men love Latin women, it is part of the culture. We celebrate women in a very special way and I think that is present in my work. I do it by making them beautiful, sensual.” “Carmen Kass was chosen as my muse because she embodies beauty and grace quite innocently.” “A very significant woman in my life wore musk oil and I noticed it the first day I met her. It was so unusual, I just had to have it and it was the inspiration behind my first signature fragrance, For Her eau de parfum. Ever since, musk has been the starting point for my fragrance line.” “For Her is for all women. It is a gift. It is something very personal of mine that I wanted to give to women.” “My father is an amazing cook – he is Cuban, so the smell of lemons and limes is nostalgic… Then there are smells I associate with the neighbourhood I grew up in – roses, hyacinths, honeysuckle, orange blossom and tuberose. I thought it impossible that these blooms could emit such scents; they were so mysterious.”
Narciso Rodriguez For Her Musc Collection Eau de Parfum Intense (100ml), R1 335 (Exclusive to Edgars)
“The fragrance I wear depends on my mood. You should change your scent depending on how you feel and how you want to be perceived.” “What is important to me is that all my creations are accessible and beautiful but also practical.”
“No scent is more memorable or sensual to me than musk” – NARCISO RODRIGUEZ

Marc Jacobs Daisy Petite Flower On The Go (20ml), R345 (Exclusive to Edgars)
marc jacobs This controversial New York designer pushes boundaries with his fashion and beauty campaigns
“I love to take things that are everyday and comforting and make them into the most luxurious things in the world.” “I was inspired by a long-time friend and colleague who is a clever woman, really very charming with a strong sense of personal style. She’s sophisticated with a twist, like a shocking colour or an oversized accessory.” “With Dot, there’s a real sense of freedom, a fearlessness and energy.” “I looked at specific ingredients that have a strong colour and that smell like colour. And that’s why we used ingredients like red berries in the scent.” “If Dot was a piece of music it would be a remix of a happy little Mozart melody… light and playful but re-voiced for a contemporary audience.”
Marc Jacobs Dot Eau de Parfum (50ml), R765 (Exclusive to Edgars)
“Fragrance, like fashion, is meant to express a strong personal style” – MARC JACOBS

“Rosie (HuntingtonWhitely) is this beautiful, sensual English rose” – CHRISTOPHER BAILEY
Burberry The Beat for Women Eau de Toilette (50ml), R625
CHRISTOPHER BAILEY This British designer with working-class roots is behind some of Burberry’s most-loved fragrances “[Burberry Body] is very British and the most sensual and feminine fragrance we have ever worked on. It’s sophisticated, modern and it’s delicate.” “People ask me if it’s a burden to be working for a company – like Burberry – that is so rooted in heritage, I tell them it’s not a burden at all. It’s a bloody pleasure! When I arrived at Burberry, I just breathed in the culture. I love both the tradition and the of-the-moment feeling of the brand.” “I can’t bear it when things are achingly perfect. I like dishevelled elegance. It’s important to have things a little broken up. You can wear the most beautifully crafted pieces, but they should just be thrown on.” “I’m influenced by music, travel and non-fiction writing. Real life is more fascinating than any story.” “[For Burberry The Beat] I envisioned a woman running through woods filled with acorns and bluebells. And, of course, English tea was in there somewhere.”

MY TOP FIVE HOLIDAY MOVIES are Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, Sex and the City, Bridesmaids and Valentine’s Day. I love a good romantic comedy. JENNIFER ANISTON
I LOVE RETAIL THERAPY – it’s my favourite pastime. What can beat a big shopping spree in a bustling city?
THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A WOMAN is the freedom to experiment with fashion. With a healthy dose of confidence you can get away with wearing whatever you want.
MY HANDBAG IS AN ESSENTIAL ACCESSORY – it looks good while holding everything I need. I’d be lost without it.
THE THREE MAKE-UP MUST-HAVES I always carry with me are blush, lip gloss and mascara.
