We've put together a gift guide filled with a few of our favorite things from our lineup of international independent designers, to make your holiday shopping easy and delightful.
There is handmade jewelry from London based Carolina Wong, who's unique and artistic creations of woven recycled gold, pearls and semi-precious stones are the perfect gift for someone with a creative and feminine flare that appreciates delicate detailing in their jewelry. Her focus on upcycled and recycled materials makes her pieces perfect for the eco-conscious person who wants to feel good about their accessories being ethically made.
And we also have handmade jewelry from Hong Kong based FARRA, which is a classic mix of pearls and gemstones put together in simple and elegant forms that are ideal for someone who likes to accessorize in an understated way. There are matching sets of necklaces, bracelets and earrings in gorgeous combinations like Baroque Pearls and Lapis Lazuli, Red Coral or Black Tiger Eye gemstones. These pieces will never go out of style and can be worn through all seasons.
Give the gift of luxurious silk, cashmere and wool shawls and scarves that are woven in hand drawn designs from artists at Seidenmann's studio in Switzerland. The fabrics come from Italy and then they are hand-rolled in the studio, so the attention to detail in these beautiful pieces is unparalleled. From gorgeous florals to unique geometric patterns, there is a design that will suit just about everyone. Perfect for that special someone with refined taste.
If you want something with a little more edge, look no further than AndRena Nikol's studded leather handbags and cuffs. Handmade in the heart of Texas, you can support American Made products and a small burgeoning designer at the same time. Whether the person you're buying for likes roomy hobo bags that fits everything they need, or a smaller crossbody bag, AndRena has it covered. The leather and hardware are beautiful quality and the matching cuffs take the look to a new level of cool. Perfect for that special someone with fashion street smarts.
If you really want to impress, purchasing a luxe piece of apparel by NYC's own Patrick Cupid, will get you more than a nod of approval. Patrick's designs are the epitome of NYC's chic with a bit of street style. He often recycles fabrics and his unique prints look like something you would see at the MoMa museum. Patrick's pieces are for the woman who's style is feminine yet fierce.
The Baruni collection offers beautiful silhouettes and sophisticated fabrics as unique as you. Designer details and ready-to-wear ease are combined flawlessly for a comfortable yet pulled together look. Her gorgeous dresses look like they came off the runways in Milan, yet they are accessible and easy to wear. Each piece is perfect for the world traveler whose style reflects her eclectic taste.
We think the perfect winter accessory is a hat. Belgium brand Herman Headwear has been perfecting headwear since 1874. They offer high quality hats made in Italy and Ecuador. You can find the perfect hat for any shape face and every preferred style. There are beanies and baseballs for the sporty types, fedoras and trilbies for the fashionable types, and buckets and caps for the practical types. Giving the gift of a hat means giving the gift of warmth and protection.
And if you have your head covered then why not the feet too? When you gift French made socks by Bonne Maison, they will be anything but boring. 100% luxurious Egyptian cotton in fun and inspired patterns will make anyone's tootsies happy for the holidays.
And if you love to bestow gifts that bless the home with beauty, then we suggest Lavender & Lillie's home and body fragrances. Their scents are inspired by their travels, and they include exotic locations like the Seychelles and India. Their candles, oil diffusers, soaps, and creams will carry you away on a carpet to far away places. The perfect gift for that special someone who prides herself on creating a warm and welcoming home.
