The SLMan Hot List: March


The SLMan Hot List gives you all the inspiration, recommendations and ideas you need for the month ahead. From the classic British label of the moment to the freshest trainer collaboration, here are the coolest things to check out in March…

The Restaurant


There are a number of new restaurants to get excited about this month, not least Jeremy King's Arlington, on the site of his old haunt Le Caprice. But we're also looking forward to Joséphine, a new place in Chelsea that officially opens on 2nd March. Michelin-starred Claude Bosi’s most personal project to date, Joséphine is inspired by his late grandmother and the traditional bouchons he often frequented in his hometown of Lyon. The menu will be filled with nostalgic French bistro classics: think onion soup, oeuf en gelée, salade lyonnaise, leek vinaigrette and traditional mains of rabbit in mustard sauce, veal sweetbread in morel sauce, and bavette in shallot sauce. The wine menu will only feature pours from the Rhone Valley, including some from Joséphine’s own label. In keeping with the classic French feel, this will be available in bouchon-style metre wine, where the bottle is left on the table for guests to help themselves to more, allowing the service to be casual. At the end of the meal, guests will pay only for what they have drunk.


The Travel Accessory

The Trunk By Carl Friedrik

Carl Friedrik has launched a vintage-style rolling Trunk suitcase with the capacity and seamless compartmentalisation for long-haul escapades. Inspired by the more luxurious golden age of travel, the all-black Trunk has a heritage feel, complemented by the contemporary brand’s sleek aesthetic and technical performance. Its 90-litre capacity includes a spacious main compartment so you can pack large and bulky items with ease. The Trunk also features three mesh packing cubes of varying sizes to maximise packing efficiency – they fit neatly between the foldable padded dividers in the main compartment. The durable and sturdy luggage also offers a TSA-approved aluminium lock closure system and an impact-resistant polycarbonate shell that is supported by a lifetime guarantee.



The Appointment

Daniel Fletcher For Royal Ascot

British fashion designer Daniel Fletcher has been announced as the first ever creative director of Royal Ascot (18th-22nd June). He’ll be in charge of creating the annual Royal Ascot Look Book and Millinery Collective – two pieces of high-fashion editorial that have historically set the dress code for the Royal Meeting, but in recent years have evolved to inspire racegoers to put together outfits that are authentic to their personal style. 


The Homeware

Ginori 1735 Colonna Re-Edition

Last week, we showed you how to refresh the contents of your kitchen cupboards. For something extra special, now have a look at the new collection from Ginori 1735. This limited-edition set pays tribute to Giovanni Gariboldi’s original Colonna collection – an icon of 1950s design with clever stackability and a modular form that revolutionised fine china. This Re-Edition collection comprises three sets: a dinner service, a tea set and a coffee set – all in the same shape and unmistakable blue as the original.


The Film


Six months into a solitary research mission to the edge of the solar system, astronaut Jakub (Adam Sandler) realises that the marriage he left behind might not be waiting for him when he returns to Earth. Desperate to fix things with his wife Lenka (Carey Mulligan), he is helped by a mysterious creature from the beginning of time he finds hiding in his ship. Hanuš (voiced by Paul Dano) works with Jakub to make sense of what went wrong before it is too late…


The High-Street Launch

Mango Essentials

Mango has introduced a premium menswear line. Essentials is a collection of timeless wardrobe staples including trench coats, tailored jackets, sweatshirts and jeans to help men create a versatile, contemporary capsule that can work for any occasion and last season after season. The wearable colour palette, which includes neutral tones and shades of blue, is simplistic and functional, and goes beyond trends, allowing the customer to mix and match tones and fabrications. 


The Kitchen Must-Have

TUCCI By GreenPan

Actor and newly crowned food superstar Stanley Tucci has launched his cookware collection in the UK exclusively via Fortnum & Mason. Available online and in the department store’s treasure-laden Third Floor Cookshop, TUCCI by GreenPan is for keen cooks and design lovers. Made in Italy, the collection was developed from the ground up with Stanley, focusing on innovations that optimise the cooking experience and can take your output to the next level – think sculptural champagne handles finished in a PVD coating that’s wear and corrosion resistant, and a PFAS-free ceramic non-stick base. We’ve got our eye on the versatile 6-litre Stanley Pan in teal.


The Series

The Gentlemen

This forthcoming Netflix series is set in the world of The Gentlemen film, but with a whole new cast, combining Hollywood talent and some British film and TV legends. When Eddie Horniman (The White Lotus’s Theo James) unexpectedly inherits his father’s sizeable country estate, he discovers it’s part of a cannabis empire. Moreover, a host of unsavoury characters from Britain’s criminal underworld want a piece of the operation. Determined to extricate his family from their clutches, Eddie tries to play the gangsters at their own game. However, as he gets sucked into a world of criminality, he begins to find a taste for it. Also stars Kaya Scodelario, Daniel Ings, Joely Richardson, Vinnie Jones, Giancarlo Esposito, Max Beesley, Peter Serafinowicz, Ray Winstone and Guz Khan.


The Trainer Collab

Teddy Santis X New Balance

The Teddy Santis X New Balance Made in USA SS24 collection has a fun new take on the brand’s classic grey. The collab with Aimé Leon Dore founder Teddy features refreshed interpretations of iconic silhouettes. The 990v4, 990v6, 996, and 998 models will be decked out in a lighter hue named 'grey matter' and accented with sleek black and crisp white detailing.
