Part-time lovers, broken-hearted boys, lovers at first sight or strangers in the night, Valentine’s Day is here to celebrate love in all its forms. Filmmaker Edmund Fraser teams up with editor Patrick Clark to bring you an idiosyncratic celebration of love, as a life-affirming parade of our contemporary generation takes hold. Jaded or not, take the time to indulge in the sweeter things in life: polyamorous, monogamous or single, toss convention to the wind, and do something beautiful.
Whether that be enjoying a delectable bottle of Veuve Clicquot (this Selfridges Rosé edition records its own personalised message), or Fréderic Malle’s Monsieur and its succulent tones of patchouli, fruity tangerine, enigmatic rum, cedar and vanilla, go for a sensation forte this February, regardless of whether you’re single or happily settled.
A stellar piece from Atelier Swarovski’s core collection will dust away any risk of looking modest, and for the gents, a Nixon Ragnar watch will boost masculine undertones in a fantastically whimsical way. As the day winds down, pop or cork (or two) of delightful Nicolas Feuillatte champagne, with a harmonious hint of Cointreau (and a touch of lime) for a mind-blowing Champagne Martini. So deep in your heart will they be, that really a part of you will they be. Happy Valentine’s!
