Claire Rubinstein selects five items that sophisticated ladies will crave this Christmas
Multi-session package at 1Rebel
Sweating in the dark with a group of strangers… Yes please! Book a session at 1Rebel – whose mantra is “We don’t spin, We ride” – and experience highly intense fitness sessions against a backdrop of bespoke playlists by internationally acclaimed DJs and rockstar instructors. They’ve taken London by storm and you can either “kick ass” and reshape in a group or privatize your pain with a personal programme. GQ don’t call this “The King of Gyms” for nothing.
Festive Chelsea blowdry at Vos
If the mere thought of a workout leaves you looking like you’ve just endured a wild weekend with Bear Grylls, then it’s time to cool down and move on to grooming. For the perfect festive Chelsea blowdry, head to Vos on the Kings Road where you’ll get lots of va va voom volume and perfect waves that will see you through the party season in style.
Whilst we’re on the subject, I have to include a visit to Waggin’ Tails Pet Boutique & Spa where my standard poodle, Marcel, leaves feeling fresh, fluffy and smelling divine.
Jeans from Donna Ida
As a child of the 70s, my denim obsession shows no signs of waning and my favourite has to be Donna Ida denim. It’s the ultimate designer denim destination with boutiques in Chelsea and Belgravia curated by the ‘Queen of Jeans’ – as Donna Ida herself is known. Great fitting and style advice is offered as well as a superb range of clothing and accessories, including my latest jewellery favourites from True Rocks Ibiza.
