With the stakes for Christmas gifts particulary high this year—think: impending travel plans and ample time for online browsing—we know the perfect place to begin looking when it comes to shopping for the style set.
Enter Hermès with a thoughtful-meets-sophisticated Christmas assortment of house-favourites inspired by the maison’s annual theme. Keeping in line with reconnection and harmony with self and others is artistic director Alexis Dumas’ draw of ‘The Human Odyssey’ which presents itself in whimsical and playful ways throughout the curation.
The womens’ and mens’ accessories-focused selection consists of an array of items from bags and shoes to gloves and cuffs, leaving absolutely no detail behind. For the truly Hermès-dedicated, there’s even an exquisite ashwood bicycle that’s part of the mix.
If you’re looking to start smaller, however, the maison’s Tea Time and Lazy Leopardesses scarves in vintage silk and silk twill pack as much of a punch. While the former sports candy-coloured heart prints perfect for a loved one, the latter serves up just the right amount of vibrant detailing, making it an eye-catching accent to any outfit.
For those aiming to impress this party season, consider bringing your ensembles together with a seamless bag and heel combination. Try on the Verrou horse blanket bag in embroidered calfskin for size and top it off with the maison’s peach-hued suede goatskin sandals. And if you’re in the market for something a little more subdued? Opt for muted greys in the form of a cashmere and silk beanie or matching fingerless gloves for an eventual trip abroad.
Our personal favourite is a seasoned Hermès staple that suits just about any occassion. Whether it’s holiday season or next year’s summer festivities, consider the maison’s well-loved aluminium cuff for a season-defying accessory that will truly never go out of style.
