Christmas Gift Guide: Fashion Lover’s Faves From Alexander McQueen, Mango and More!

30 November 2012 by

It’s Christmas! Almost. We’re ludicrously excited about the upcoming festivities, not least because of all the lovely gifts we’re going to be giving (and receiving) over the festive season.

Every week between now and Christmas we’re going to be running a gift guide with a few of our favourite pieces. We’ll be looking at gifts for guys, stocking fillers, last minute pressies and gifts for home lovers. This week, we’ve got some brill pieces for fashion lovers – have a look, add to your wishlist, send to the boy and see what happens!

Skull ring, Alexander McQueen. £150, net-a-porter.com

 

Ankle boots, Mango

We are ludicrously excited about the opening of the Valentino exhibition this week. If, like us, your budget doesn’t stretch to Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s latest line, then these amaze ankle boots from Mango share a hot heel with the current Valentino footwear collection. £114.99, [a href="http://shop.mango.com/GB/p0/mango/shoes/boots--booties/touch---methacrylate-heel-ankle-boots-by-gala-gonzalez/?id=76619658_02&n=1&s=zapatos.Boots_Booties&ie=1&m=&ts=1354265563142" target="_blank">Mango.com[/a]

Homies T-shirt, Brian Lichtenberg

Brian Lichtenberg’s T-shirts combine the holy trinity of awesomeness: 1. Comfort. 2. The witty missive 3. Having been worn by Rihanna.

Chronograph watch, CK

Right. We’re going to come over all Rita Ora and embrace 2013 with a new, kick-ass attitude. And we might be on time, once in a while. Chronograph watch, CK [a href="http://m.calvinklein.com/product/index.jsp?productId=17531336" target="_blank">CalvinKlein.com[/a], now £199

Dahlia Noir eau de parfam, Givenchy

Of all the fragrances launched this year, Dahlia Noir is one of our favourites. Sophisticated and elegant, and created by Givenchy design director Riccardo Tisci, it’s a fabulous balance of floral and musk. [a href="http://www.johnlewis.com/347823/Product.aspx" target="_blank">JohnLewis.com[/a], from £37.80.

Sunglasses, Guess

Bright sunlight and a super cosy coat need only one addition: some winter sunglasses. We love these cat eye sunnies by Guess. £80, [a href="http://www.guess.eu/en/Catalog/View/Women/SUNGLASSES/Annie/EYSGU705600" target="_blank">Guess.eu[/a]

Foil leather top, Gerard Darel

Honestly, we’re so excited about Christopher Bailey’s flashy, metallic, foil S/S Burberry collection that it’s almost unseemly. This metallic top by Gerard Darel will see us though the festive season and into spring very nicely indeed.  £330, [a href="http://www.gerarddarel.com" target="_blank">gerarddarel.com[/a]

Ring, Links of London

You’ll never be more filled with seasonal cheer than when opening a tiny jewellery box crammed with sparkle. Love this Links of London Effervescence ring – just the right mix of statement-y and practical. £150, [a href="http://www.linksoflondon.com/gb-en/online-shop/gifts/sister/10832-effervescence-ring" target="_blank">Linksoflondon.com[/a]

iPhone case, Marc by Marc Jacobs

The dilemma of how to protect your smartphone whilst remaining chic was always a difficult one to navigate. Luckily, marc Jacobs has shown us there’s no need to pretend to be sophisticated when, in fact, our sensibilities lie on the ‘kitsch’ end of the spectrum. Well, it’s good enough for Mosskins… Marc by Marc Jacobs bunny ears iPhone case. £40, [a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/331282" target="_blank">net-a-porter.com[/a]

Olivia bag, Reiss

Reiss accessories are a sure fire hit for a best mate’s Christmas pressie – not surprising, when you consider that their head designer is former Stella McCartney head of accessory design, Manuela Morin. We’re all over this diamond trim clutch bag in electric blue by Reiss. £149, [a href="http://www.reiss.com/womens/bags/olivia/electric-blue/" target="_blank">Reiss.com[/a]
