We’re bona fide animal lovers over here at Barneys New York, but we’ve even surprised ourselves by our coverage of the humble cow on The Window. Who could forget Veronica, the gorgeous animal responsible for Manolo Blahnik milk? (Yes, that’s a real thing.) And while our next highlight isn’t strictly related to the mighty bovine creature, it’s all in the name: Cowshed.
The spa line, which launched in 1998 at the original Cowshed Spa in Somerset, England, and is now a staple at Soho Houses worldwide (the brand is part of the Soho House Group), offers bath and massage oils, shower gels, body lotions, candles and more in such cheeky “mood collections” as Wild Cow (invigorating), Lazy Cow (soothing), Moody Cow (balancing), Knackered Cow (relaxing), Grumpy Cow (uplifting) and Horny Cow (you get the idea). There’s also Gorgeous Cow, a luxury edition collection, and extras like Cowlick Shampoo and Cow Pat Manicure Set.
Funny names, serious stuff: The company, directed by beauty and spa veteran Christina Russillo, makes sure all its products are plant-based and contain naturally derived ingredients free from parabens, petrochemical, sulphates, artificial fragrances and colors and are suitable for vegetarians.
Needless to say, we’re head over heels (hooves?). Looks like it’s time to get in touch with our inner cow…
