1. Timeless Bag
An unmistakable classic, the Bottega Veneta Cassette shoulder bag is a necessary addition to any bag collection. An everyday bag complete with Bottega’s signature woven design, it is just the right size to hold your essentials inside the safe surroundings of Italian crafted luxury. A worthy arm companion, its timeless appeal makes the Cassette one of the most coveted bags to ever grace our shoulders.
2. Cashmere Knit
The soft touch of cashmere against the skin is a tactile treat we dream of when the cold weather hits. A luxury knitted piece that will keep you cosy all winter, this GANNI striped cashmere sweater features the brand’s playful Scandi design in soft pink and black stripes with a flower shaped button detail at the shoulder. Mixing indulgent fibres with a classic stripe design, a new cashmere separate never fails to make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside (and out).
3. Signature Hoops
Whether you like to keep it simple with a single pair of earrings or prefer to experiment with a variety of curated ear piercings, a pair of minimal gold hoops is a much needed jewellery addition. The Roxanne First 14K huggie hoops stay close to the ear for that barely there look, comfortable enough to sleep in and ideal for everyday, when you are taking a break from your statement earrings.
4. Iconic Heels
Always at the top of every girl's shoe wish list and immortalised by Carrie Bradshaw, a pair of Manolos is our equivalent of glass slippers (in satin form). Precious in appearance and iconic in design, the Hangisi pump adds that much needed sparkle with its crystal buckle detail, never failing to catch the eye of all that are blessed enough to behold.
5. Home Comfort
Finding the right scent for your home is as important as finding the right throw pillows for the couch. What makes a scented candle even better, is when it is wrapped in a must-have ceramic case that will blend perfectly with your carefully curated home decor. The instantly recognisable Fornasetti Rossetti candle features the iconic etchings of Piero Fornasetti and a homeware legacy spanning over 100 years. A collectible creation, the Rossetti candle is guaranteed to fill your home with notes of white rose, orange blossom, sandalwood, musk and multiple compliments from visitors.
6. Sweet Dreams
A good night's sleep is imperative to a healthy lifestyle and the soft touch of crisp cotton will complement any slumber. Thankfully Desmond & Dempsey are here to aid your nighttime relaxation with their collection of cotton printed PJ sets. Featuring a myriad of pretty custom illustrated prints like ‘The Jag’, you’ll find yourself wearing them out of bed as much as you do in it, because loungewear is our favourite type of wear these days.
7. Logo Wallet
Protecting our most valuable assets, a purse or wallet should be a hospitable pocket bank to keep our money safe. Providing ultimate comfort for our pennies and cards, the Gucci 1955 Horsebit wallet adds some heritage elegance in the form of Gucci’s GG supreme print and Horsebit detailing. A miniature but mighty purse with a designer logo is sure to bring a smile every time it is opened, which unashamedly, may be quite a lot, even if it’s just to gaze at its beauty.
8. Heritage Scarf
A winter warming accessory is a necessary essential for this time of year and a well received gift by all. Protection from the elements that does not compromise on style, the Burberry Vintage check scarf is the designer scarf that has stood the test of time. With a tartan print that dates back to the 1850s, it is a tried and tested timeless classic.
9. Chain Reaction
A delicate gold chain can offer endless possibilities to the wearer depending on how they choose to wear it. Whether it sits alone, adds a pendant or is layered alongside others, a jewellery box isn’t complete without a chain necklace. In keeping with the layering trend that has dominated fine jewellery for the last few seasons, Zoë Chicco’s 14K Gold Double Chain necklace can be worn simply or provide a headstart to a collection of chains.
10. Sell Out Sneakers
Believe the hype, designer sneakers are one of the most sought after items and have the magical ability to disappear as soon as they arrive. Signature silhouettes like the Gucci Ace sneaker are sell out hits and this tennis style classic is top of the charts. Adding the Gucci coloured stripe to a simple white sneaker, the Ace is a footwear foundation to any capsule wardrobe.
