A Fresh Perspective on Spring/Summer Elegance

Every year, I look forward to the change into spring and summer. This is when fashion and beauty trends bloom just like the flowers in our lively neighbourhood. This year, our exploration of high fashion and new off-the-rack collections has been really exciting. This is especially true because of the recent fashion shows in Paris and the exclusive release of the Ferragamo SS24 collection. Let me share some of my favourite moments and thoughts that I think our Belgravia neighbourhood will appreciate.

Couture That Captivates

Paris was, as usual, full of creativity and style. The fashion collections from Celia Krithiarioti, Julienne Fournie, Yara Shoemaker, and Ziad Nakad showed how fashion is more than just clothes – it’s a form of art. Celia’s designs were dreamy and detailed, reminding us of the beauty in traditional handiwork. Julienne Fournie combined modern style with future-focused materials, creating fashion that’s both new and timeless. Yara Shoemaker’s collection was all about strong, graceful women, with sophisticated designs that celebrate the modern woman.

The Ferragamo Revelation

I recently went to the VIP lunch for the new Ferragamo Collection. The collection showed a mix of classic elegance and modern style with new colours and designs. It made me realise the importance of bold colours in our spring-summer outfits.

The latest Ferragamo collection by Maximilian Davis blended cultural stories well. This collection combines Italian craftsmanship and Caribbean energy. It has new colours and materials that bring a new definition to luxury fashion. It shows how elegance can be fun and sophisticated, offering pieces that will be key in any fashion-forward wardrobe this season. If you have not been in to the store yet, this is your nudge to go, what are you waiting for?

Neville’s Creative Journey in Paris

We were thrilled to be part of the Paris Haute Couture shows, where we worked with designers to help showcase their amazing collections using our hair styling skills. This was a great chance for us at Neville to show off our skills and dedication to innovation and elegance in the beauty industry.

Looking at these collections, we’ve noticed several trends for our spring and summer outfits. Soft pastels and flowing styles are popular, encouraging us to show a gentler side. Simple looks are given depth with contrasting textures, which also add a touch of beauty. Of course, sustainability remains a key focus, with designers showing their commitment to fashion that is not only stylish but also responsible.

Beauty Blossoms

In beauty, the current trend is about a natural, glowing look. Picture moist skin, gently blushed cheeks, and a touch of sparkle to reflect the summer sun. For hair, the trend favours a relaxed style with loose waves, easy up-dos, and even a fun acceptance of natural textures.

As we enter this season of new beginnings, let’s aim to renew not only our clothes but also our perspectives. Let the charm of spring and summer encourage you to discover, to be creative, and to fully appreciate the beauty of the season.

Reflections from Belgravia

Returning to Belgravia, I am reminded of the unique charm and elegance of our community. This season, I invite you to explore the latest trends not just in fashion but in personal transformation and renewal. Whether inspired by the playful sophistication of Ferragamo’s SS24, the ethereal beauty of Celia Krithiarioti, the innovative elegance of Julienne Fournie, or the empowering elegance of Yara Shoemaker, let us help you embrace this season with style and grace.

As we step into Spring/Summer 2024, let’s celebrate the joy of renewal and the beauty of transformation together. I look forward to sharing more of these moments with you, our cherished clients, as we continue to discover what makes Belgravia not just a place, but a lifestyle.

Warmest regards!

Elena’s Edit

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Elena’s Edit, a monthly musing from the heart of Belgravia, where we peel back the velvet curtain to reveal the essence of elegance that defines our beloved neighbourhood and the ethos of Neville Hair and Beauty.

Elegance

Elegance is more than a concept; it’s a lifestyle. In Belgravia, this lifestyle is woven into the fabric of our streets, from the stately Georgian townhouses that line our avenues to the meticulously manicured gardens that bloom with the promise of spring. Here, elegance is not just seen but felt —a palpable presence that accompanies every step you take through this historic enclave of luxury.

Discovering Elegance in Every Detail

Ziad Nakad’s 2024 collection caught my eye for its stunning designs, blending elegance with a touch of the unexpected—much like a walk through Belgravia, where classic beauty meets modern flair. Nakad’s work, with its detailed craftsmanship and thoughtful use of fabric, reminds us that true style is about expressing oneself authentically. It’s not just about the luxury tag but the stories we tell through the clothes we wear and the beauty we choose to showcase. This collection inspires us to find beauty in the details and celebrate individuality in our everyday elegance.

The Personal Touch of Beauty Beauty is personal.

It’s a reflection of your essence and a celebration of your individuality. That’s why our approach to elegance is grounded in understanding and enhancing your natural beauty. From the precision of a custom haircut to the artistry of a colour transformation that complements your complexion, our goal is to ensure that every client leaves our salon feeling not just pampered but empowered.

Belgravia’s Legacy of Luxury

Belgravia is not just a location; it’s a legacy. A legacy of timeless elegance, where the luxury of yesterday meets the innovation of tomorrow. This neighbourhood is a treasure trove of exclusive boutiques, artisanal cafes, and hidden gardens, each with its own story of sophistication and style. As part of this community, we at Neville are committed to upholding this legacy by ensuring that every service we offer is an embodiment of the elegance that Belgravia represents.

Belgravia’s embodiment of luxury and sophistication finds its match in the cherry cola hair trend. This elegant color, with its deep reds and chocolate undertones, offers a refined update for the discerning individual. At Neville Hair and Beauty, we excel in crafting this luxurious transformation, ensuring it complements your unique style and the exclusive essence of Belgravia. Embrace the cherry cola trend for an exquisite blend of warmth and sophistication.

Elena’s Edit is more than a newsletter; it’s an invitation. An invitation to explore the nuances of elegance that define not just our salon but the vibrant community of Belgravia.
