Escentual News



Escentual Graduates


You’ll know by now that we love any chance to celebrate our own team at Escentual! In August, we saw the Escentual team’s hard work at university pay off, with five of them graduating with all their ceremonies being postponed due to COVID.


A Promotion

Issey Miyake is considered Fashion’s greatest humanist and is celebrated all over the world for his perfume and fashion. Many of Issey Miyake’s inspirations were taken from Japanese clothing and technology, which is what makes his creations truly unique. As a stockist of Issey Miyake fragrances and lover of his fashion, we want to take a moment to acknowledge and hail his incredible legacy.


Cool Collaborations





Disney and GIVENCHY fans will fall in love with the GIVENCHY X Disney limited-edition collection. A collector’s dream capsule collection, every piece is decorated with a 101 Dalmations pattern or character, complete with signature GIVENCHY’s logo. GIVENCHY has a long-standing relationship with Disney and it’s their second collaboration together, so we weren’t surprised when we heard about their latest collaboration with Disney on 101 Dalmatians. We can’t wait to see what they do next!

Gucci X Adidas


High fashion meets street style with the collaboration of Gucci and Adidas. Designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michelle, the two iconic brands merge their signature logos together to make a new insignia for this collaboration. The brands celebrate both of their heritages with the use of Adidas classic sports lines and Gucci’s signature pattern throughout the range.

Charitable Initiatives





Our recent heatwave reminded us yet again how important our ongoing #SunPoverty initiative is with so many children unable to gain access to suncream. Last year we donated 20,000 sun creams to food banks and schools. By 2025, we aim for every school in the UK to have sunscreen with all their students being educated on sun safety.
