• Where to go

    He's the Swiss doctor known for doing everything in his power to restore clients skin to their natural youthfulness. 

    Until now, Dr Levy's treatments have only been available in this country at specialist Harley Street clinics or private members clubs. But a new 'Intense Stem Cell Activator', has been added to the menu at 'flash' spa, FaceGym at Selfridges. The facial workout space created by Spa Junkie Inge Theron, includes a 15 min add-on treatment to FaceGym's signature treatment, using Dr Levy plant derived stem cell based serums and creams in conjunction with an ultrasound machine that stimulates circulation, speeds up the penetration of the anti-ageing formulas and uses the heat from the ultrasonic waves to trigger collagen production. 

    Dr Levy's products are also for sale at FaceGym. Which is good news for those who've tried his range. Though the products are squintingly expensive, they're exceptionally good. (I keep mine for best or desperate needs.) And of course, cheaper than a trip to Switzerland.

  • What to buy

    Just when I was bemoaning how staid and airless most London jewellery shops are, along comes Delfina Delettrez.

    Delettrez who started her eponymous line in 2007, is part of the Fendi family and the youngest designer to be included in the permanent collection in Paris at the Louvre's Musée des Arts Décoratifs, has opened a shop on the delectable Mount Street. 

    Joining the other two jewelers breaking the stuffy mould - Jessica McCormack with her 'Maison' and Solange Azagury-Patridge's rainbow heaven - Delfina's contemporary shop is a homage to Italian design against a backdrop of malachite green faux leather and shiny brass details.

    The new space is a most fitting cabinet of curiosities in which to showcase Delfina Delettrez's unique jewellery vernacular; hands, eyes, bees, lips and her 'phantom settings' - precious stones that seem to float around the body. Stuffy she ain't.
