Festive gifts with great style -
find the perfect gift for her
Enter the world of countless Christmas offers
that will delight even the most demanding woman.
For those who stay away from the definitions...
Women who distance themselves from definitions do not follow any rules. They always reach for unconventional forms, bold patterns and never hesitate to juxtapose garments that seem odd at first glance. Where to find a gift for that special person? In the world of high fashion, of course. Nothing is obvious there and that is intensely appealing.
When choosing clothes, opt for oversize blazers in pronounced colours, tops with exaggerated shoulder lines (from The Attico for instance), T-shirts flaunting playful prints or impudent slogans, voluminous sweatshirts with a vintage effect (Balenciaga) and draped Vivienne Westwood dress. An aficionado of offbeat fashion will be more than glad to nurse a new Loewe elephant mini bag, Bottega Veneta’s maxi fringed one, or the iconic bag from Maison Margiela - a soft, quilted pillow bag. A little gadget will definitely surprise her and make her smile. A fluffy bunny iPhone case from Balenciaga or an Undercover pouch with a drool-worthy cake print are among many ideas worth investing in. Add an extravagant beanie, an iconic balaclava with a Fendi monogram or a vegan leather Nanushka hood to complement the whole look. Thinking of jewellery, too? A beaded bracelet or a necklace from MISBHV that draws on an infinite kid’s imagination or peanut, toadstool or crystal-encrusted banana-shaped bracelets from Marni is a must. A pair of rain boots in a vibrant hue from Bottega Veneta, sherpa platform sandals from UGG, unpredictable Balenciaga pumps or Maison Margiela Tabi split-toe shoes will do the trick when you are dealing with a lover of non-obvious silhouettes.
For those who always got their head in the clouds…
A wardrobe of a romantic is a mixture of carelessness and a girlish lightness of being. Isabel Marant, Chloe, Erdem, Ulla Johnson, Zimmermann or Etro are among the collections that you should focus on. Floral motifs, lace, tulle, ruffles or subtle jewellery define an indispensable feature of a dreamful fashionist.
Silk shawls, lavishly-encrusted hair accessories from Erdem and Red Valentino, as well as sunglasses boasting the 1970s and 1980s vibe, will satisfy this kind of person. Among the long-awaited Christmas gifts, there is surely a designer bag. Select a retro-inspired mini model from Gucci: GG Marmont, Dionysus or Dahlia are some of the most entrancing proposals. The iconic Marcie, the Jorge bucket bag or the patchworked Juana bag from Chloe will unquestionably meet the requirements of the most discerning romantics. But if they are going to keep both feet on the ground, a Sophia Webster pair of stiletto pumps, Chloe & Miista clogs or opulent J.W Anderson slides will be perfect to do so.
For a typical minimalist...
The minimalists do not need much to look phenomenal. Their coherent style can be described via a motto: less is more. The classic lovers will undoubtedly dig simple yet timeless silhouettes from The Row, Jil Sander and Toteme. Oversize blazers and coats, jersey dresses, stylish shirts and jumpers made of the highest quality fabrics allow creating a quintessential and imperishable wardrobe.
The need for a gift for those who value quality over quantity will be satisfied by a classic and effortless Saint Laurent or Bottega Veneta bag that tops a look off. Subdued colours and simple forms are the factors minimalists particularly value. That is why you should concentrate on comfy Gucci or Tory Burch loafers and the classic Saint Laurent stilettos that will never fade out of fashion. The whole look will be complete with scarves and shawls. You can never go wrong with the monochrome ones from Toteme, the monogrammed Gucci styles or the ones that showcase an inconspicuous logo - think Agnona or Saint Laurent. Functional accessories: wallets from Bottega Veneta or Fendi or the exemplary Saint Laurent branded belts are among proposals that will go down well with minimalists, too.
For the ones who love to shine at night...
Women who love to shine, queens of every party - they would never want to be ignored. What gift to pick then? The jewellery should be gaudery. In this case, opt for the Italian splendour by Versace and Dolce & Gabbana or heavy-duty and funky Givenchy chains. A dress? Choose a mesmerizing model finished with lurex thread, accentuated with sequins and showing some cleavage, too. Designs from Dolce & Gabbana, Jacquemus or The Attico offer infinite possibilities.
Eternal party lovers would kill for the metallic stilettos from The Attico, sky-high pumps from Saint Laurent or Le Silla or animal-printed pumps from Dolce & Gabbana. The dance floor is theirs! The real lovers of shimmering accessories would enjoy glittery Golden Goose sneakers - they are made to make a fashion statement at night and during the day, too.
Lovers of indoor dress code...
Stylish stay-at-home girls value the most a combination of comfort and chic. Warm, body-hugging cashmere sweaters and scarves, baggy cotton shirts and soft and comfy sweatsuits are vital features of well-organized home apparel. Agnona, Loewe, Ulla Johnson, Proenza Schouler and Jil Sander are the brands that are worth noticing.
A perfect Christmas gift? Soft sweaters, wool dresses, snug sweatshirts from Acne Studios or Isabel Marant, or leisurewear for the whole week by Palm Angles or Proenza Schouler. Bet on a woolly poncho and swathe yourself in an oversize cashmere coat during colder days. The accessories department recommends warm socks, fur gloves and hats. Think thick scarves in vibrant colours by Loewe or in more understated hues by Jil Sander or Toteme. A bag? Pay particular attention to soft shearling Jacquemus bags, fluffy Chloe shopper bags or Saint Laurent plush designs. Bottega Veneta leads the way in this case - be sure to check the Arco and the Jodie in the mini size, The Fringe Pouch emblazoned with long fringes or the Chain Pouch rendered in serious plush - all made of sheep fur. The lovers of an indoor dress code would love plush slippers and insulated boots from UGG, suede sneakers and stylish snow boots by Moon Boot.
