LMH Luxe List: August London Diary
From summer essentials to seasonal dining – our LMH Luxe List rounds up what’s on our to-do list for the month of August…
DIVA at V&A South Kensington
The ‘DIVA’ exhibition honours the immense power and boundless creativity exhibited by iconic performers. It delves into the captivating realm of ‘diva,’ reshaping and redefining its significance as it has evolved over the years in opera, stage performances, popular music, and film.
Originating from the Latin terms ‘deity’ or ‘goddess,’ the notion of a ‘diva’ has undergone a fascinating evolution, embracing a tapestry of richness and intricacy. This captivating journey begins by delving into the world of 19th-century opera stars and 20th-century silent-screen sirens. It then delves deeper, exploring diverse dimensions of divadom. This exploration encompasses the cultivation of images by Hollywood icons like Elizabeth Taylor and Bette Davis, the impassioned activism of artists such as Billie Holiday and Miriam Makeba, and the business acumen demonstrated by Dolly Parton and Beyonce.
LOEWE Font Tote
As we embark on our summer getaways, it is crucial to bring along a spacious tote for all your essentials. The Loewe Font Tote fits the bill perfectly as it boasts a cuboid design woven entirely in raffia with the iconic LOEWE signature.
With its spacious interior, the LOEWE Font Tote provides ample room to carry your summer essentials, making it a practical choice for everyday use. The bag’s well-designed structure and sturdy handles ensure both comfort and ease of carrying.
