Although, it never left. Black really is our favourite colour... And no one does it better than Zambesi. Every season, without a doubt, Zambesi takes us on adventure of black, texture, some more black and cutting edge design. Instantly recognisable, but never dull and always evolving. The ultimate in cult labels. Black never dies, it always reinvents, as does Zambesi.

Lubin perfume is one of the oldest perfume houses in the world - with its history linking to the high-society of the Napoleonic era... The product was an indicator and reflection of social hierarchy.
Founded in 1798 by Pierre François Lubin, who began supplying 'scented ribbons, rice powderballs and masks to "Les Merveilleuses," socially exulted women who frequented Thermidorian drawing rooms of Napoleonic France; and the "Incroyables," members of the subculture that mixed fashion and propaganda which emerged following the terror that was the immediate aftermath of the French Revolution of 1789.'
Worn by the likes of Joséphine and Pauline Bonaparte, as well as Queen Marie-Amelie and Marie Antoinette. If you were a crowned head of that time, you wore Lubin perfume.
Today, the perfume house still maintains the exclusive scent and superior quality, however it is now available to us regular folk. We may not have a crown on our head, but it sure does make us feel like royalty. When you wear Lubin perfume, you are wearing history.

A few posts ago we showed you some BTS photos of the 'New PINK'... We have settled into our new home, and we must say, we do love our new space. The art on the wall is by artist Lisa T, who just finished interning with Romance Was Born. The flooring is by Missoni. Quotes from David Bowie and Marilyn Monroe inspire on the walls. The interior is sophisticated, but still maintains the PINK quirky charm... AND in designer news, we have secured luxury label McQ by Alexander McQueen... Heaven.
Pink Ink is our fashion wonderland... We do hope you'll join us on our adventure.

If there is one thing we do religiously at PINK everyday, it’s that we have to light a candle. There is something so wonderfully mood elevating and calming about smelling the sweet scent and watching the flicker of the flame from a candle. It's so a part of us, that we even light one as soon as we get home.
So you can imagine our excitement when one of our favourite PINK designers, Romance Was Born collaborated with Elise Pioch, creator of candle house Maison Balzac to create LA ROMANCE... Think of bitter orange zest and cedar leaf, fir needles, crushed cypress and Peru balsam and patchouli... The scent is perfect for the Autumn/Winter season.
Treat yourself, light one, sit in your favourite chair with your favourite magazine and indulge in a La Romance.
