Life is (finally) getting exciting here in Australia. Following 14 weeks in lockdown for Sydney-siders, we’ve re-entered society thirsty for a negroni (of which you can make with our favourite gin below), eager to wear new clothes and dance! A lot of new releases come past our desks and these are the products we’re coveting this month. Hello party season, we’ve missed you!

Swarovski Dulcis Clip Earrings, $275. SHOP NOW

“If there was any sign to dress up and get out of the house this weekend, this is it. Swarovski has launched Collection II, a line of glitzy jewellery and luxurious accessories just waiting to be taken out for a dance (which is newly legal here in Sydney). While here at GRAZIA we’re normally drawn to silver and gold styles, it’s hard to go past the brand’s vibrant, cushion-cut styles, reminiscent of the Y2K trend we’ve been seeing everywhere (thank you, Dua Lipa). – Laura Cordaiy, Senior Integration Manager

Dissh Gaia Cobalt Geo Shirt, $100. SHOP NOW

“Dissh. This little brand is everywhere and on everyone who’s anyone at the moment! Whether you’re cozying up for a long New York winter (Hello, Bambi) or buffing the limbs for a Sydney summer (Marina Didovich, we’re looking at you), Dissh have some really on-trend, affordable pieces that you will like. My girlfriends and I are all really happy and pleasantly surprised with the quality of the product – their linen signatures are divine – given the price point. Build up your holiday wardrobe now but a word of warning, they sell out on key pieces quickly. My pick? This Gaia Cobalt Geo pant and shirt combo.” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

Citadelle Original Gin, $75. SHOP NOW

“There is a whole array of options out there for Gin but seriously, it’s exhausting finding a new weekend tipple (first world problems, I know). This month just in time for Freedom Day, I was lucky enough to sample the French artisanal spirit, Citadelle Gin. It’s fragrant – the way a good gin should be – but it’s delicate at the same time. Oh and did I mention, the bottle is so chic it needs to take centre stage on any bar cart. Chin chin!” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer

Calvin Klein Tight Gym Shorts, $80. SHOP NOW

“As I’ve admittedly prioritised afternoon tipples over working out, my motivation to upkeep my new-found fitness from lockdown has been waning. To combat that I’ve opted for new summer activewear from Calvin Klein. The brand known for luxurious basics has entered a foray of performance wear and the collection is teeming with technical fabrics and sleek style cues. The tight gym shorts (which can be worn to actually work out or Saturday brunch) feature technical stretch fabrication and a medium rise waist. I’m adding several to my cart next time.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer

Marimekko Asymmetric Swimsuit, USD$55. SHOP NOW

“Every morning, I make a coffee with my Marimekko mugs (I have these ones) and so when the Finnish brand announced they were collaborating with Adidas, I was thrilled the iconic Unikko (poppy) print would make its way onto my swimsuit and leisure wear as well. The limited-edition capsule collection is now available – and if you’re in the US, you can purchase this chic one-shouldered swimsuit now. For Australians, our drop is a little more limited (but still stunning) with unique pieces such as crops, tennis tops and tights. Take a look here.” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

Leneige Perfect Renew Youth Serum, $89. SHOP NOW

“When it comes to skincare, there are always rules to splurge and save. For serum that works, it always pays to pay. Enter: the new Laneige Perfect Renew Youth Serum. This little bottle of miracles is a concentrated formula that works to improve the appearance of skin tone and texture and boost skin’s radiance. Helping to address the five signs of early skin ageing including fine lines, skin texture, firmness, radiance and hydration. But don’t take it from me; use a small amount on a dehydrated apple (stay with me) and watch its texture dramatically smooth.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer

Tod’s Mosaic Shopping Bag, $1,800. SHOP NOW

“With so much focus on sustainability in the fashion lexicon these days, we’re seeing consumers flock to trusted brands. TOD’S is one of them and this limited-edition shopping bag is crafted with unused pieces from the production process. With exposed stitching and an ochre/chocolate/powder blue colour palette that will go with everything, this classic piece will last you a lifetime. It is part of the brand’s MOSAIC PROJECT: a line which celebrates manual craftmanship and little wastage, something we should all get behind.” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

GANNI Gimme More Book, $110. SHOP NOW

“For the first time ever, the Ganni girl will be immortalised into a coffee book. Published by Rizzoli New York, Gimme More captures the diverse network of creatives that surrounds the Scandi brand, alongside its ongoing efforts to become the most responsible version of itself. Like the clothing husband-and-wife duo Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup release each season, the book is vibrant, full of personality and will look incredible in whatever way it’s styled.” – Laura Cordaiy, Senior Integration Manager

Hunter Lab Lipid Vitamin Cleansing Oil, $56. SHOP NOW

“I’ve always gravitated toward Hunter Lab as a brand because their packaging is so chic and gender neutral. The latest in their range is the Lipid Vitamin Cleansing Oil, a beautiful three-pump morning ritual which leaves my skin feeling really hydrated, smooth and a little dewy. (I’ve always thought an oil better removes makeup and sunscreen). The oils (which include almond, hemp seed and argan) transform into a sort of cleansing emulsion when added with water. While all Hunter Lab’s products look beautiful on the bathroom vanity (and are gender-inclusive), they are all made naturally in Melbourne, Australia so it’s a purchase you can feel really good about.” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director

Cultiver x The Curated Mari Linen Dress in White, $160. SHOP NOW

“Life in lockdown had me appreciate one thing: comfortable clothing. Now as we re-enter society I’m still yearning for comfortable styles that are not activewear. To my delight this month, it was announced that luxury linen home good store Cultiver, has partnered with wardrobe essentials label The Curated, for summer styles that transcend form and function for multi-purpose styles. Think beachwear, lounge wear and clothing chic enough to wear to afternoon drinks. In addition, each piece is crafted ethically in certified factories from premium natural fibres sourced by a coterie of ethical, transparent and environmentally certified suppliers.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer

Charlotte Tilbury Cryo-Recovery Face Mask, $69. SHOP NOW

“I’m 34 and I admittedly like a little Botox around my eyes and in my forehead – just enough to minimise fine lines and look like I’ve had a really good sleep. Like a lot of the Sydney set, I was craving a top-up during lockdown so when this new Charlotte Tilbury cryo mask arrived at my door claiming to make my skin feel 238% firmer, I was excited… and skeptical. You pop it in the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes, strap it to your head and then massage the little beads over pressure points. While it’s definitely the Kourtney Kardashian of the face mask world (read: the most interesting mask to look at), my skin did feel like it had just taken an ice bath, and appeared firmer, pillowy, and “lifted” particularly around the jawline and eyes. It’s well-priced, re-useable, but a word of warning: It’s freezing to put on.” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director
