In praise of …Purple

Prince loved it, Chuck Bass loved it. We celebrate this regal hue with a pick of purple products…

How rock and roll is this leisure chair from Odyssey at Very? At just £71 it is much cheaper than other designer versions out there, but makes just as much of a style statement.

MAC’s ‘Smoked Purple’ might look scary in the tube but is actually quite wearable. Purple is in fact more universally flattering than red (it’s just a bit more ‘out there’) so sweep it on with an LBD and nude make up for a dramatic night out or just dab a bit and top off with lip balm.

 Betty Jackson’s agapanthus scented candle from the Black range smells beautiful (actually very Summery, despite the black box!) Available in a box of three or one single.

Fearne loved her oversized purple scarf as a maternity cover up, and we love this grey and purple cashmere one from Allegra at Lux London.
