Ms Micallef’s bespoke selection of items speaks to the buyer who’s in search for a touch of the timeless past. Upon seeing the collection, you might mistake it for a period film’s costume department, professionally hand picked and tailored for your very own Downton Abbey and Great Gatsby-inspired fantasy. Allure Clothing is exclusively sourced biannually from UK and Spain.

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but semi-precious stones can be quite good company as well. RTeal by Ruth Sant is your go-to supplier for all things hard and shiny, and her tactile selection of handmade jewellery pieces is so vast, you might just be tempted to wear nothing but her wares ala Kate Winslet in Titanic. The pieces are handpicked by Ms Sant and each come with their manufacturer’s certificate to confirm authenticity and quality.
