La nuova capsule collection di Loewe ispirata alle opere del britannico William Morris
People say that finding presents for men its particularly difficult as there are less options compared to women. Actually, if you don’t have clear ideas about your present, both cases can be a ‘mission impossible’, especially if the other person likes surprises and originality. Here is a selection of Christmas present ideas for her that will leave her speechless.
If a bracelet sounds ordinary, Aliita’s 2017 Charity Edition will make you change your mind. It’s a series of bracelets with a minimal charm, a little envelope characterised by minimal lines in 9 karats yellow gold, paired with a fabric wrist strap in four versions with different colours and patterns. An elegant and simple gift that supports a good cause. The precious envelope contains an important message: the hope that the dream job of each of the children supported by the Venezuelan charity “Comparte por una vida” will one day become reality. The entire revenue of the bracelets will be donated to them.
For those seeking a ‘scented’ Christmas present, Graanmarkt 13 recently launched a new plant-based product line designed to satisfy all senses. You will be able to have a little bit of nature with you wherever you go. The line comprises a fragrance which is like “a walk through a spring field”, somewhere between lavender and Patchouli (but also rosemary, coriander and bergamot) and a scented candle made with natural wax that can last up until 30 hours.
If you’d rather go for a fashion gift, Spanish maison Loewe just launched a new capsule collection inspired by the work of the legendary artist and writer William Morris with four beautiful prints coming directly from Morris & Co’s archives. Both clothes and accessories are characterised by an unusual combination of punk essence and aesthetics.
Do you prefer to go for a classic with a jewel? Marni Resort 2018 Collection focuses on languid and sinuous femininity, with romantic fluid lines and floral patterns. As a matter of fact, these jewels are flowers with delicate fabric petals. Just like spontaneous buds, the flowers (available in soft pastel colours or in purple) develop on leather and fabric strings, with petals kept together by glittery pistils that shine resembling dew.
Finally, for those looking for eclectic Christmas gifts for her, Nina Mûr Eyewear presented her new eyewear collection in partnership with Abet Laminati, inspired by the colours and styles of Memphis group, founded by Ettore Sottsass in the early ‘80s. There are two versions: Original Memphis, characterised by laminated details in Bacterio with Digital Print and Basic Memphis, made of simpler and monochromatic models. You are spoilt for choice.
