With holidays approaching, Whitewall is sharing its top picks to help with your last-minute gifting needs—including options from Assouline, Fendi, Flos, and more.
Assouline has revealed its latest book in the “Impossible” collection focused on the magic of champagne, written by Enrico Bernardo. Perfect for those that love to toast to festivities, 236 pages with over 200 illustrations take readers to the French region, exploring the magic behind bubbly. The handcrafted volume, encased in a wooden clamshell case, weighs over 22 pounds.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Fendi’s iconic Baguette bag, the maison is releasing 25 archive editions, reinterpreted for today’s contemporary customer. Past designs are brought back to life, featuring new colors and materials, including all-over sequins in contrasting hues, satin, denim, and fur. For your chic relative or your successful best friend, this reimagined icon would be an unforgettable gift to unwrap.
Loro Piana’s first-ever “CashDenim” line is an ode to the innovation of blending denim and cashmere. Experts in each material—Loro Piana’s artisans, located in Piedmont, Italy, and the denim experts located in Japan’s Bingo region—joined to collaborate on an irresistible, hand-crafted fabric for women, created by 60 percent denim and 40 percent undyed cashmere. Sturdy yet thin, ultra-soft, and warm, CashDenim was made into a series of jackets and trousers. This is a gift for a woman who already has what she needs.
Inspired by La Dolce Vita, Chanel’s Cruise 2022–23 eyewear collection embraces the spirit of the Riviera in two subcollections—“Solar Metal” and “Pearls.” Some feature metal frames with chained woven leather straps, while others showcase Chanel’s signature double C logo on the “petals” of the frame.
Valentino‘s latest book, Valentino Rosso, documents the important work of the fashion house, recounting its history and showing the maison’s recognizable red color in a new light. Published by Assouline, the publication shows decades of work over 304 pages, illustrated by over 200 drawings. This title is ideal for your friend who has a library full of cultural and educational books, yet not one silk hardcover in red.
Givenchy‘s statement bag for the season, the G-Hobo bag, has been presented in new versions. Now, more feminine and supple with renewed shapes and hues, it’s a sleek option for a night on the town. Ideal for anyone looking to upgrade their handbag this season, the reimagined G-Hobo style comes in several colorways and sizes.

Patricia Urquiola has designed a gentle new modular lighting system for Flos named “Almendra,” inspired by a fruit and its branches. Modular and customizable, floating in the air like a mobile, the lighting system provides diffused light emission—available in linear and leaf-like compositions. This would be the perfect gift for your parents, who recently converted your childhood bedroom into a chic work den. They deserve it.
