Style 10 Dec 2021


Not all of us got to go abroad this year. But the intoxicating scents of Italian fragrance house Acqua di Parma can transport you to the colourful and sunny Mediterranean coastlines. Our pick is the unisex Mirto di Panarea holiday gift set, with packaging designed in the iconic Vortici print by Emilio Pucci and in support of Save the Children. The set captures the scents of the Mediterranean coast in an eau de toilette, body lotion and shower gel. £94,


To the letter

A personalised piece of jewellery is always a thoughtful gift. Whether it’s your loved one’s initials or those of their partner, parent or child, a simple letter can express a lot. We love this elegantly simple 18ct gold necklace by jewellery house David M Robinson with its unique off-centre pendant. It’s designed to be worn on its own or mixed with other necklaces of different shapes and sizes for a statement look. £295,


Mindful mats

Liforme yoga mats are the best reviewed in the world for their comfort, beautiful design and non-slip surfaces – in fact, their GripForMe technology makes the mats more grippy as you get sweatier. The mats are also eco-friendly, non-toxic and good for the world as a whole – five per cent of every purchase from the Liforme Giving Back collection is donated to one of the brand’s charity partners: Friends of the Earth, Yoga Gives Back and GLAAD. Give Back yoga mats start at £100,

Knit wit

Princess Diana was quite the fashion trailblazer and, even more than 20 years after her untimely death, her influence is still globally evident. This year the fashion world has gone baa-my for the adorable Warm & Wonderful ‘black sheep’ knitted jumper, made famous by the Princess of Wales in the 1980s. Fellow heritage British brand Globe-Trotter has teamed up with Warm & Wonderful this winter to produce a collection of luggage bearing the iconic red, white and black pattern, including a signature ‘Centenary’ suitcase and – our favourite – the portable ‘London Square’ handbag. Warm & Wonderful x Globe-Trotter London Square, £945,


Wrap up

Design lovers will be familiar with the sight of artist Camille Walala’s vibrant patterns on buildings, but now you can wear her signature geometric patterns in a luxury new collection from Sunspel. The heritage British brand has just released a new collection designed exclusively by Walala, including this gorgeous reversible scarf made in Scotland from super-soft lambswool. Sunspel and Camille Walala scarf, £195,  


Sweater weather

Is there a nicer gift to wake up to on Christmas morning than a snuggly new jumper? We don’t think so, and this stupendously fluffy jumper from Brunello Cucinelli, knitted in Italy at the luxury brand’s atelier, is the perfect number to see you through the winter months. It’s stylish, practical and surprisingly flattering. We love. Brunello Cucinelli mohair blend sweater, £2,700,


Street smart

Some people think that a gift card is a bland option when it comes to presents. But what could be better than giving your loved one the gift of choice – and the chance to shop at some of the world’s most luxurious brands? That’s exactly what you’ll be getting with the new Sloane Street Gift Card, which is redeemable at more than 60 boutiques on the famous street – including Bottega Veneta, Dior, Cartier and Gucci – and can even be spent in the area’s five-star hotels.

The moon and back

The festive season is the perfect time to rock a dazzling pair of earrings, and they’re sure to jazz up a dull Zoom call well into the new year. Celestial-inspired earrings never fail to make an impression, and we love these 1920s-esque fringe drop earrings by All Saints, available from John Lewis. Moon fringe drop earrings, £49,


Eyes have it

Serengeti combines innovative design and technology to produce some of the most wearable, advanced and stylish sunglasses available. The brand’s lens technology has been crafted to adapt to light to give the wearer ultimate protection no matter the weather or season. Available in a bold collection of colours and shapes, Serengeti is made for men and women looking for eyewear less ordinary. Starting from £180 a pair,
