Spring, also referred to as springtime, is one of the four temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. And you know what? It's here! The days are getting longer, the weather is warming up, and you're itching to spend more time on terraces, in parks, and, of course, so you need to plan new outfits! To mark the onset of our beloved season, we've unveiled a fresh rendition of our highly anticipated Wish List—the Spring edition. Think pastels, skirts, sunglasses—the essentials for stepping into this new season with flair and elegance. Are you ready?

To kick off our new wish list, we’re thrilled to introduce you to one of our favorite shoe brands of the moment: Tama Toby.

Tama Toby is the brainchild of fashion designer Tamara Toby, who honed her skills through internships with renowned houses like Alexander McQueen and Viktor & Rolf before establishing her eponymous brand. Specializing in deadstock leather shoes, Tama Toby caters to individuals who appreciate originality, uniqueness, and a touch of edge. There are no rigid fashion calendars, no collections dictated by trends—each Tama Toby piece is singular, timeless, and crafted for the discerning few.

Our top pick? The “Red Sassy Mule.” And guess what? Fashion icon Maria Bernard has already been spotted rocking these red snake-printed mules!

As Spring rhymes with Jacquemus (yes, it does, we promise), featuring this brand hailing straight from the South of France was a must. As we inch closer and closer to April, remember the proverb: “Till April’s dead, change not a thread,” so don’t forget to don a little scarf. We’re absolutely smitten with ‘l’écharpe Rica’ from the Les Sculptures collection—an artfully crafted scarf with a trompe l’oeil appearance, which also served as the S224 show invitation. Very Old Money style, we love it! 

Remaining in the southern regions, allow us to present one of our favorite Spanish brands, Paloma Wool, hailing from Barcelona. This brand epitomizes transparency, pastels, and lightweight knitted tops, while also crafting exquisite leather accessories such as bags and belts. For this wish list, we’ve chosen to showcase an oversized belt that resembles a skirt, doesn’t it? Named “Jeans,” this denim-effect leather belt is ideal for accessorizing your long dress, adding flair to denim pants, or for the daring, wearing as a skirt!

But when it comes to Spanish brands, we simply can’t overlook the iconic LOEWE. While we frequently highlight their stunning bags and apparel, we’ve decided to surprise you this time with the introduction of Aqua Drop. This fragrance marks the debut of the LOEWE Accord in the LOEWE Agua fragrance collection—an exclusive olfactory note inspired by the enchanting aroma of the Spanish Rockrose wildflower. It embodies the essence of spring.

Were you hesitant to wear flat ballerinas in winter due to the fear of feeling cold? Or perhaps, like us, you reside in a region known for its frequent rainfall? Well, it’s time to make an investment, as we officially declare the season of ballerinas open! To celebrate, we’ve handpicked these Blue and Pink leather women’s ballerina flats from Camper, featuring OrthoLite® Recycled™ non-removable footbeds and TPU outsoles (20% recycled). And here’s a tip: word on the street is they’re currently on sale, so hurry up and grab a pair!

We promise, we’re not being sponsored by Spain for this Wish List, but once again, we can’t resist introducing another adorable Spanish-based brand: Gimaguas. We’re smitten with this Cotton light pink shirt featuring long sleeves and lapels, adorned with multiple ruffled seams on both arms and the body, creating elasticity and volume. And yes, we’re fully aware it’ll pair perfectly with the Paloma Wool belt and the Camper shoes—did we plan it that way? Absolutely.

And to conclude this first part of our Wish list, let’s conclude with the symbol of this new season, a flower! The Jardin Silver Big Flower Clip Earrings by Elhanati, from the Elhanati X Conie Vallese ~ Jardín collection. Jardín is a curated selection of jewellery and objects handcrafted in 925 Sterling silver designed by Conie Vallese and Orit Elhanati.
