December 16, 2021

A gift from LOEWE’s holiday collection is one that will transcend the festive season to be enjoyed the whole year. The maison’s offerings include small leather items and accessories perfect for stocking stuffers, like charms, wallets, keyrings, and AirPod cases. Additionally, there are larger wearables, too, like a new Puzzle Hobo bag, the new Amazona 23 bag, and pieces outfitted with prints by Charles Francis Annesley Voysey, including a wool cardigan displaying a take on Voysey’s The Owl and other nature-inspired prints from the late architect and designer’s oeuvre.

Robert Mondavi Winery has partnered with the famed porcelain house Bernardaud Collection for a first-of-its-kind collaboration bound to thrill your favorite wine connoisseur. Special for the holiday season is a collection of custom wine blends, enclosed in a series of gorgeous Limoges. The exciting part? Each collectible MCMLXVI-titled bottle must be purchased as an NFT, ensuring the authenticity of the collectible and the special Cabernet-Sauvignon blend it holds. With less than 2,000 editions available, the collaboration invited the artist Clay Heaton to create a series of original digital artworks, which are purchased as an NFT token, that can be redeemed for one of the exclusive bottles—including Bernardaud-designed porcelain iterations, like a matte black bottle and a glossy maroon hue, topped in gold.

If you’re local to New York City, we highly recommend planning a stop at Fort Makers’s new expansion, the Fort Makers Market, to browse its artisanal and handcrafted objects and artworks. This is your one-stop shop to support independent creators and find something for everyone on your list—including favorites like Keith Simpson’sceramic candlestick holders, quilted offerings from La Réunion, and beautiful jigsaws made by Le Puzz.

While jewelry brand NeverNots technicolor offerings are all equally mesmerizing, we’d suggest the “Ready 2 Wear” Show n Tell - Let’s Play Chess ring for a statement piece to gift an adorer of extravagant gems. The ring features an enamel chessboard design set with a dazzling blue topaz, held snugly to the finger by a gold heart on either side, imagined in 18karat gold.

Hosting the family holiday gathering this year? You’ll want to deck your table with the latest offerings from CeCe Barfield Thompson’s new holiday collection. The designs include porcelain dinnerware, linens, and placemats featuring festive motifs like hand-painted holly leaves, embroidered stars, and scalloped edges in seasonal hues of red, green, and gold. Order the set and wow your guests with your tablescape, which we suggest outfitting with a poinsettia centerpiece and handmade place cards to complete the look.

Assouline’s latest publication GSTAAD GLAM will make the perfect coffee table addition for any jet setter or landscape lover. With text by Geoffrey Moore alongside a breathtaking set of images highlighting various photographers, designers, and establishments, the book transports viewers to Switzerland’s resort town of Gstaad, where Moore spent much of his childhood. Readers can expect to get lost in a photo diary of the picturesque location from home, or use its imagery to plan their next getaway through the photographs of snow-capped mountains, hot air balloons taking flight, and cozy mountain abodes.

They say that the best presents come in small packages, and in the case of the Hermès Heure H timepiece, we agree. With the classic letter monogram as its focal point, our favorite iteration of the watch features a diamond-set H-shaped case and a midnight-hued aventurine dial that fastens to the wrist with a matching strap in glossy, sapphire alligator leather.

Cocktail enthusiasts and mixologists alike will be delighted to open a copy of Guillaume Aubry and Sterling Hudson’s new book Sunset Cocktails, debuted by JBE Books. Conceived as a means of transforming the wonders of a sunset into a sensory experience, the publication starts with an essay from Aubry, whose research into the mystical-yet-daily occurrence has informed recipes for 12 drinks created by mixologist Hudson. Readers will find that the experience is complete with an afterword from Ryoko Sekiguchi, whose expertise comes into play to suggest the perfect gustatory pairings for the solar sips.
