Holiday Gift Guide 2020: Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Inez & Vinoodh, and More

By Pearl Fontaine

December 18, 2020

Looking for a little help with your holiday shopping? We’re sharing a few things we’d love to unwrap this year—like Louis Vuitton’s exotic leather handbags, the Arceau Grande Lune from Hermès, and Inez & Vinoodh’s new virtual cards for a cause.

You’ll find one of Louis Vuitton’s exotic leather handbags on our wish list this year. Including styles like the Capucines, Petite Boite Chapeau, and the Petite Malle, the bags come in an assortment of colors, imagined in materials like crocodile and python leather. Our favorite is the Petite Malle in the deep, swirling blue Niloticus print.

Hermès’s Arceau Grande Lune timepiece combines a classic style with creative design. Taking Henri d’Origny’s original curved case designed in 1978, the watch evokes the galloping of a horse through sloping numerals placed around the midnight blue face. A navy alligator strap with a steel buckle accompanies the 43mm timepiece, which features a mechanical self-winding movement and a detailed module denoting the moon phases.

Give with a purpose using Inez & Vinoodh’s new virtual cause-based gifting platform, Double Dutch. Debuted in partnership with the founders of Kidfund, the platform was launched in response to the vast amount of holiday gifts that are thrown away each year. As a solution to the wasted money and materials, the platform offers giftable “cards” created by artists, which support environmental and social causes. Including artists like Marilyn Minter, Derrick Adams, Cindy Sherman, and Tyler Gordon, patrons can buy a virtual card featuring an artwork to send as a gift, which will include a cash amount to be given to a charity of the giver’s choice—including organizations like Born This Way Foundation, charity: water, Parley for the Oceans, and more.

Alanui’s “HOLIDAYS” capsule collection is a series of holiday-centric knitwear that combines the house’s iconic geometric patterns with archetypal imagery from the season, like stars, candy canes, Christmas trees, and festive landscapes. With options for men and women, you’ll want to grab one of the cozy garments to feel festive from home this socially distanced holiday season.

If you’re looking to gift the perfect piece of statement jewelry, Yi Collection’s Candy ring should do the trick. Hand-forged in 18 karats yellow gold, the ring features the dreamiest pale blue, baguette-cut Aquamarine, surrounded by a series of playful tourmaline in hues of pink.

Kuzma Vostrikov and Ajuan Song’s book Absolutely Augmented Reality surrounds their recent photography project of the same name. Inspired by a quote from Pablo Picasso (“Everything you can imagine is real.”), the project explores concepts like friendship, doubt, consumption, worry, closeness, and many more, executed through an improvisational process. The collection of witty, beautiful, and humorous images will surely be a favorite of any photographer or art enthusiast in your life.

The new “TODO EL MUNDO” collection from designer Nia Thomas will keep you warm and stylish for the rest of the chilly season. Featuring statement knit garments in earthy tones—like cardigans, pull-overs, hats, and scarves—you’ll want to add one of these pieces to the closet of everyone on your gift list. You’ll find us wrapped up in the puff-sleeved Capetown cardigan or the Redwoods cardigan coat until spring arrives.

Azlee’s Modern Byzantine emerald and diamond large coin necklace features a fresh, contemporary design with three rounded emeralds set into a central gold pendant, accompanied by square diamonds on either side. Wear the pendant on its own or layered with additional necklaces. To make this gift especially momentous, add a personalized engraving to the back.
