High-Fashion Presents For Fabulous People

Because you can never have enough bags and shoes (not to mention jewelry) in your life

Edited by Andrew Barker


Christmas is all about sparkle. And while this year will be a more muted affair, your gifts don’t have to be. For this selection we looked for items to not only add some cheer, but ones that will serve you in a world beyond the pandemic. With a vaccine on the way, there will be weddings and cocktails to plan for. We may even be able to get a martini at the bar and have a birthday meal inside a restaurant again soon. In short, there is plenty to excited about as we enjoy a low-key holiday. For now, these rings and bags, slides and sandals from the finest designers on the planet should give ample inspiration as you stock up for your nearest and dearest.


These items not only add some cheer, they will serve you in a world beyond the pandemic.
