Our Gift Guide: A Look Into Our Wonderful Suppliers

We wanted to give you some more information about our wonderful suppliers - who we feature instore and online - to shine a light on their creativity and to show how beautiful their pieces really are. 

Ayten Gasson kiss the moon

Kiss the Moon is a lovely night-time sleep aromatherapy brand based in the English countryside and they are driven by a passion to provide a beautiful night’s sleep.

“Good sleep is fundamental to a successful beauty regime because it is while we sleep that the most active cell renewal happens. That’s why poor sleep so often results in poor skin. Our products not only help you get to sleep but also give your skin the nourishment it needs overnight as it repairs and regenerates” Jo Foster, Founder.

Kiss The Moon uses 100% natural ingredients and comes in four different aromatherapy combinations. Their products help you unwind for a calm bedtime and a relaxing night's sleep.

The Love blend: Rose, frankincense, palmarosa and ylang ylang, combined with Vitamin A-rich rosehip seed oil to help you relax at bedtime and keep skin looking young.

The Glow blend: Orange, geranium, myrrh and litsea, combined with Vitamin E-rich wheatgerm oil to revive dry and dehydrated skin overnight and help brighten your mood at bedtime.

The Calm blend: The rebalancing power of jasmine, chamomile, ylang ylang and sandalwood to settle unhappy skin overnight.

The Dream blend: Soothing aromatherapy pulse point balm with lavender, bergamot, cedarwood and chamomile to help light sleepers fall into a deeper, more restful night’s sleep.

We have a range of sleep balms, bath salts and soy wax melts in stock online, which we think will be perfect for a dreamy pamper night and to aid the perfect night’s sleep.

Ayten Gasson Amourette

Amourette is a talented illustrator who we have collaborated with for a few years now, as we just love her prints. The use of pattern and motif is created primarily using pencil and she takes inspiration from vintage fashion, erotic literature and ballet. Lianne is another Brighton local, which is how we have built such a lovely relationship over the years. 

“My work is motif-based and takes inspiration from the aesthetics of vintage decadence, the balance of light and dark and androgynous sexuality.” Lianne Cheal, Illustrator.

One of our favourite prints is 'Nightjar’, a Jazz Age-inspired half-drop repeating print. The jewel tones of rich blue and purple invoke twilight ambiance and are layered with gramophone, songbird and floral motifs. With its nod to sultry music after dark, this design makes an elegant statement piece and beautifully complements our silk lingerie.

We have collaborated to create a beautiful matching eye mask with the nightjar print that Lianne created for us - and they are available to buy as a set here.
