With its gold-dust-flecked pink walls, curvaceous Eichholtz furniture and jars of Swiss chocolate, the Lily Gabriella showroom embodies the aesthetic of the Brazilian-born, Monaco-raised designer. Tucked away in Burlington Arcade’s penthouse, it’s an ethereal space in which to explore her bold, art deco-inflected jewels, which champion niche gemstones and sculptural silhouettes. Coloured gems are a particular passion, set in unexpected yet harmonious combinations that are a testament to her training in fine arts.

Tiffany & Co
“The renovation of the century” is how Tiffany & Co’s CEO Anthony Ledru described the three-year overhaul of the house’s 10-storey Fifth Avenue flagship, now christened The Landmark. Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Tiffany-blue-hued Equals Pi overlooks the gargantuan ground floor, one of 40 museum-worthy artworks on display, including pieces by Damien Hirst, Julian Schnabel, Daniel Arsham and Rashid Johnson. The boutique is scattered with items from the Tiffany Archive, such as a heritage reproduction of Holly Golightly’s black Givenchy dress and pages from the original Breakfast at Tiffany’s screenplay. Overseen by architect and luxury specialist Peter Marino, the interiors salute the house’s visionary designers, with proper space dedicated to Paloma Picasso, Jean Schlumberger and Elsa Peretti, whose sinuous creations inspired the Instagram-famous spiral staircase. The High Jewellery floor boasts the largest collection of one-of-a-kind Tiffany pieces anywhere in the world; clients can peer into an on-site workshop to watch craftspeople at work. Elsewhere, Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud presides over the Blue Box Café, once again the hottest breakfast table in town. But perhaps not quite as enticing as the legendary 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond, which also received a makeover to mark the house’s new chapter.
