In the 1930s and 1940s, Miami Beach was in the midst of its real estate development boom and the epitomous Art Deco buildings lining Lummus Park only amounted to a few blocks along Collins Avenue.

For a long time, the building now known as The Confidante by Hyatt was a lonesome figure at 40th Street, looming North of an otherwise almost a beach almost deserted. Not only was this building located at South Beach's highest point, it was South Beach's highest point with its 16 floors rising above the other 4-storey local establishments. It is because of its original architecture and prime location that the Hyatt group has chosen this building to be the site of the Unbound Collection's newest hotels: The Confidante. This hotel will be an addition to a collection that brings together hotels with a rich history and exceptional architecture, including among them the famous Cannois palace Le Martinez.

Comb brush

Love the natural look? The comb brush is for you. Resembling the fine-toothed combs you might use for your hair or brows, this brush separates and defines lashes perfectly. Serge Lutens' version will have you embodying that French-girl je ne sais quoi as the world marvels over your effortless allure.

Curved brush

These brushes help curl eyelashes. This type makes them the most suitable applicator for those with straight or “droopy” eyelashes. An option like Benefit's Roller Lash will save the day when you're looking to appear a bit more awake.

Buckingham Palace

With the couple planning on nuptials in the spring, they could decide to eschew tradition and embrace the beauty of the season with an outdoor ceremony. There would be no better place for this than the garden at Buckingham Palace, where the Queen lives part-time and throws many a garden party, including the early celebration for Prince Charles' 70th birthday that was a big enough affair for Harry and Meghan to delay their honeymoon. With much of the fashion industry having gone for outdoor shows and embracing the impact of nature for Spring 2020, it would be perfect for royal society to follow in this. Just imagine how the floral arrangements and pastel daywear would look in the stunning outdoor space.
