From bags and accessories to decorations, explore our curated list below and get ready to find the perfect fit for your celebrations.
#1 The Balaclava by Paloma Wool
Because it’s freezing outside, this fashion-iconic item from the Paloma Wool is your winter essential for braving the weather in style. We’ve selected two models for you: the iconic ‘Angels’, warmly knitted balaclava with a visible Paloma Wool label stitched on the back. Additionally, we’d like to introduce you to our new crush, the soft and warm knitted bonnet named ‘Pauli’, tied at the front. All of their knitted items are crafted in Spain and made with Responsible Alpaca, sourced from animals bred in their natural environment, respecting their habits.
#2 Acne Studios Scarf
Staying within the winter essentials, we highly recommend facing the cold waves with a mohair-checked scarf from Acne Studios. Available in 14 color combinations, these scarves are crafted from a soft mohair blend, featuring fringed ends and an embroidered Acne Studios logo. The generously large dimensions offer versatile styling options, and its incredible softness ensures you won’t want to take it off. We specifically recommend the Vanilla/Beige/Lavender model, perfect for enhancing a color-blocked white or grey outfit. You can even personalize it with a custom embroidery, we made one with 3 little bows, how cute?
#3 A single earring by Justine Clenquet
Justine Clenquet is the contemporary, unisex, and affordable jewelry brand to follow. Constantly blending masculinity and femininity, Clenquet’s designs subtly mix styles and reinterpret classic pieces. Her masterstroke? The dispersed and asymmetrical earrings adorned with piercings. We adore everything about this brand, from its ’90s grunge aesthetic to its playful and charming website, not to mention its previous campaign with Gabriette. All the jewelry is designed and handmade in France, and don’t forget to explore their bags and shoes collection. For our wish list, we’ve chosen the Carl Earring, a silver-tone single large open hoop earring with piercings, perfect for styling without moderation, especially when paired with the Selma Palladium Choker or the iconic Mindy Crystal Choker, our favorite.
#4 Lingerie Tall Tee by Vaquera
Vaquera’s website proudly declares that the brand ‘creates fashion fan fiction with the aim of subverting luxury and telling stories through clothing,’ and this essence resonates in their fashion shows and collections. One standout piece we’re enamored with is the Lingerie Tall Tee—an iconic yet simple creation from the brand. We appreciate its trompe l’oeil effect and the daring concept of wearing underwear on top of clothes.
#5 Sofia Coppola archive book
Whether you’re a cinema aficionado or a decoration master, you’re sure to appreciate this exquisite book that encapsulates the entirety of Sofia Coppola’s unique and influential film career. Compiled from Coppola’s personal collection of photographs and ephemera, the book serves not only as a striking decorative element with its bold pink color but also as a true cinematic bible, reflecting on one of the defining and most unmistakable oeuvres of the twenty-first century. This art book is personally edited and annotated by Coppola herself
#6 Leather Apron by R & M LEATHERS
Who says you can’t look hot and sexy while cooking? R&M Leathers, a London-based brand specializing in made-to-order leather clothing and accessories, presents a crafted leather apron designed in collaboration with Gabbriette. Constructed with supple and sturdy cowhide, this piece seamlessly blends practicality with aesthetics. We can easily envision this beautiful apron paired with jeans and a large white skirt, as it would be a shame to limit it to just the kitchen.
#7 Tiara 02 from the Gentle Monster x D’heygere collaboration collection
Gentle Monster is the Korean eyewear brand that has everyone talking. Known for its numerous and stylish collaborations, its partnership with D’heygere is a standout, described by both brands as ‘the perfect match.’ Gentle Monster has joined forces with the French fashion accessory brand to create a unique fashion jewelry eyewear featuring detachable piercings. Going beyond the conventional notion of eyeglasses, this fashion accessory evokes the splendor of a tiara with its playful and inspiring design.

#8 The Nesso Orange Lamp by Giancarlo Mattioli
Tired of seeing the viral mushroom-lamp trend all over TikTok and too lazy for a DIY project? If you’ve been kind enough according to Santa this year, consider adding the original Nesso lamp to your Christmas wish list. An iconic piece of Italian design from the ’60s, a decade that marked the modernity revolution with the redefinition of domestic spaces through the innovative use of plastics. The Nesso lamp is a showstopper, a statement piece that can infuse any room with warmth and coziness, thanks to its captivating orange hue.
