NUMÉRO NETHERLANDS’ VALENTINE’S DAY WISH LIST
words by Marie-Pauline Cesari
Valentine’s Day season is on! Whether you've been married for 10 years, in a relationship for 3 months, practicing open love, or simply enjoying a relationship with yourself… This period is marked by a flurry of advertisements and celebrations of love in all its forms. At Numéro Netherlands, while we are certainly not against love, we are particularly in favor of gifts. That's why we've put together a Valentine's Day wish list (in 3 parts, so stay tuned!), complete with shades of pink and red, to give you a great reason to spoil your loved ones or, of course, yourself!
As a big fan of the Coperni brand, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to feature one of their handbags in our Wish List. While the Swipe is their most well-known model (which we dream of having in every color), the Heart bag is equally the best companion for this season of love. Between the tote bag and the handbag, this bag is the perfect accessory for everyday use.
An essential gift for the season is perfume! What’s better and more sensual than choosing a new scent for your significant other? We couldn’t decide between our two current favorites, so we decided to present a duo: Armani Privé’s Rouge Malachite, an imaginary red stone that unveils a carnal and opulent tuberose pulsating under the icy lands of Russia. And our second favorite, Viktor & Rolf’s FlowerBomb with notes of jasmine and rose.
In our first list, we presented a lingerie set for Madame, and for this second list, we decided to delight Monsieur and present the iconic Calvin Klein underwear, in red, especially for Valentine’s Day! Yes, you all really want to see it worn by Jeremy Allen White, so do we…
Because Valentine’s Day is in February and not in Summer (hang it there, only 5 months left), don’t forget to cover up and warm up your loved one. That’s why we wanted to highlight this logo-patch chunky-knit scarf in flaming red by Jil Sander. Half scarf – half blanket, so wide and warm, it will warm your lover’s heart.
You thought this list was lacking shoes, well, you’re in for a treat. It’s impossible not to mention the Love Tall Boots from Yume Yume in this list. Why? Firstly, because it’s an Amsterdam-based brand that we love, secondly, they are called Love, thirdly, the heel is a heart, and to top it off, they are mixing red & pink together.
For Valentine’s Day, sometimes there’s no need to overthink it, and you just have to say it with a T-shirt. French brand A.P.C. reflects its casual aesthetic with this T-shirt from the AW23 collection. A fine heart motif frames the iconic logo in a continuation of the label’s penchant for minimalist branding.
I don’t know about you, but this Valentine’s Day story made me hungry. And for once, we wanted to impress you one last time to conclude this list. Discover the Gummy PC12 sunglasses from the Gentle Jelly Collection, featuring details reminiscent of jelly sweets. We almost want to take a bite!
