Vintage & Co. Bonnets & Belles


Oh, these are just too, too adorable. If it wasn’t a tad early (even by our standards) we’d be stocking up on them as Christmas presents. (Though actually, we happen to know there are some absolutely adorable additions to this line-up coming your way, later this year.)

Lesley Aaronson, the creative genius (and we mean genius) behind Vintage & Co. (which is a range under the umbrella of Heathcote & Ivory, which she runs with her husband Denis), has outdone herself here. The range of bath/bodycare/lipcare is emblazoned with the most gorgeous, smile-making designs – pure 50s retro chic. (And it does make us smile a bit that the Bonnets & Belles blue-eyed beauty looks really rather like Lesley herself…)

Particularly taking our fancy is the Vintage & Co. Bonnets & Belles Compact Lip Balm, deliciously softening and with a subtle mango flavour, in a gorgeously shimmering compact that even Miss Manners wouldn’t mind you flourishing at a restaurant table.

Though frankly, we think anything from the range would be a perfect Mother’s Day choices, or cheer-up gifts for a friend. (Or, um, for you…)
