The Smart Set
Look no further if your priority is buying for…. yourself.
And where to start? An edit of slick pieces that will see you way past the sparkle season, the ultimate being Coperni’s Origami bag – which is an artwork in its own right. Crafted from Italy in super soft leather it is both the perfect conversation starter at any party and the ideal piece to lift casual January dressing to another level.
Tailoring may seem like a risky gift for someone else, but Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili’s
jackets remove the worry, their structured shape fusing with unexpected cut outs promises to be a gift that’s remembered, and a guaranteed flattering cut for all.
Shoes will forever be a well-received gift, and EYTYS’ sculptural ankle boots are a smart investment to see you way into 2023. Their brutalist square toe and minimalist design feel bold, clean and crisp. The perfect pair for those who swear by a well-tailored suit.
Bold bright shades always have a place – instantly lifting the mood of any outfit, and the wearers too. Last Frame’s colourful knitted market bags bring playfulness in abundance. Their mini version is proof that not all party season bags need be encrusted with sparkle.
We are firmly into sweater season now – and colourful designs from ARG Knit’s and Aries meld on point colour combinations with next-gen silhouettes. Knitwear is the perfect gift too, if you’re unsure on someone’s clothing size. If in doubt, opt for a slightly over-sized fit, for a relaxed look that works as well with denim as slim leg pants.
MISBHV, Aries and Ahluwalia, are a delight to any logo fan – their cool, effortless essentials playfully elevated with embossed monograms or etched logos. One piece that keep popping up on everyone’s wish list is Aries distressed denim jacket, a sky-blue stone wash design emblazoned with a laser cut Aries logo. The perfect gift that proves you don’t always have to opt for accessories in order to get a logo fix.
However, on the subject of accessories, nothing is more spectacular than Medea’s chain tote bag – hand-crafted in soft pink leather, the mini wonder is encrusted with multiple chains and Medea logo pendants. As unboxing goes, it doesn’t get more impressive than this.
On the more minimalist scale of the spectrum, Coperni’s elegant Swipe bag is a cult classic which embodies everything about the hit Parisian brand right now. Whilst the logo is small, it’s pale beige backdrop makes it pop. Anyone worth their fashion credentials will instantly recognise the brand’s signature design details.
