1. Max Mara
This holiday season, invest in a timeless piece from Max Mara—the 101801 Icon coat. Designed by Anne-Marie Beretta in 1981, and produced in 73 stages, the 101801 coat quickly became a resounding hit with fashion lovers around the world. It has since been worn by celebrities and royals alike, from Isabella Rossellini to Cate Blanchett and Kim Kardashian.
With its oversized silhouette, double-breasted fastening and classic lapels, it’s easy to understand how this minimal and elegant Max Mara mainstay has stood the test of time. If you are about to jet off on a winter holiday, this cashmere-wool coat will have you covered for the entirety of your trip—pair it with jeans, a t-shirt and trainers for a casual day of exploring a new city, or layer it over a dress and boots for a sophisticated evening look.
With the festive period upon us, and the welcome return of five-person gatherings, there’s no better reason to dress up, whether you’re going out for a meal or heading over to a friend’s house. Set aside your loungewear and celebrate in style with this printed velvet mini dress from MAX&Co.’s autumn/winter 2021 capsule collection, Eccentric Mania.
As its name suggests, the collection is a nod to a mix-and-match approach to style, where opposites attract. Think: velvet dresses with chunky boots, tweed and tartan with leopard print, cable knits and crystals. Pair your dress with boots for your end-of-year festivities, then take it into the new year and beyond with sneakers. After all, if there’s a trend that is here to stay, mini dresses are a safe bet.
Sneakers have become a modern-day wardrobe essential, worn with everything from suits to dresses. If you’ve been on the lookout for a statement piece to add to your sneaker collection, look no further than the sleek modern lines and avant-garde aesthetic of Y-3’s low-top Kaiwa trainers.
An exploration of the idea of ‘Disappear’, chapter one of Y-3’s autumn/winter 2021 collection looks at the journey from the city, back into nature. True to this concept, the Kaiwa is available in a moss green and off-white colourway, with a silhouette inspired by running shoes from the archives. Made of canvas and neoprene with lightweight cushions for added comfort, this is a pair of sneakers that effortlessly merges form and function.
4. Dolce&Gabbana Beauty
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s new limited edition make-up collection is sure to make spirits merry and bright. Dressing your eyes and lips in rich, dazzling colour, they’ve created the Royal Gloss Shine Lip Plumper in two regal shades, the Precious Red and Divine Nude, to bring mirror-shine to your pout. Not only does it plump, it hydrates and is infused with skincare ingredients for an instant, volumising effect on the lips that can be worn alone or as a striking topcoat. But that’s not all.
For captivating eyes, they’ve dressed the lids in their new Royal Shadow Liquid Eyeshadow, available in two shades that glide on like a dream without smudging or fading. Our pick for embellished festive eyes is the Royal Shadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Vibrant Green, an intense statement-making green. If, however, you’re after some sensual smokiness across the lids, there’s also Baroque Bronze which imparts a luminous earthy bronze. Swipe these on and party away.
5. TWG Tea
Usher in the festive season with TWG Tea’s Festive Music Box Tea Sets. Choose between two coveted Festive Tea Sets set to a melodious tune of the stars—Christmas Wish and Christmas Tour, for a whimsical start to your joyous festivities.
Encased within each set are four ornament-sized mini tea tins filled with TWG Tea’s signature fine harvest teas. Each tea pays homage to the best Christmas celebration happening around the globe—from Noel in London, a decadent black tea with notes of dark chocolate and comforting spices, to Noel in Paris, a punchy green tea blended with candied berries and sweet French spices that is reminiscent of a wintry walk along the Seine. Perfect as a gift or for your own enjoyment, we can think of no better way to revel in the winter holiday.
6. Hook Coffee
The whiff of aromatic spices, ginger, pine, frankincense and more—that’s Christmas morning. But nothing spells the spirit of the season than the excitement and the buzz of activities as we count down to the festive season. Hook coffee’s Christmas Advent Calendar makes that anticipation even more special this year.
Twenty-four drip coffees, each of a different flavour profile and intensity adorn the sections of this limited-edition advent calendar, with commissioned designs from children with disabilities marking off each door. In keeping with the spirit of giving, Hook Coffee will donate part of the proceeds to the organisation dedicated to these young talents. A paper version of the advent calendar is also included so coffee lovers can pen their thoughts against the tasting notes of their favourite flavours. Tag your favourite brew to a meaningful cause and sustainable living—looks like the festive season got a whole lot special this year.
There is nothing more iconic in furniture design than the Panton Chair. Conceived by Verner Panton in 1960, the Panton Chair’s cantilever structure and anthropomorphic shape quickly elevated it to its status as ‘the’ chair of the 20th century. Crafted entirely from a singular piece of plastic, this daring construction makes for a stylish addition to your home.
Suitable both indoors and outdoors, choose between seven eye-catching colours for a furniture piece that doubles up as a talking point for when you are hosting your end-of-year festivities. If you are planning to gift this to someone, rest assured—this seat is one that will stand the test of time.
8. Moët & Chandon
Prepare to unleash some glamour and sparkle with Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut limited edition gift box set. Comprising 30-40% pinot noir, 30-40% meunier and 20-30% chardonnay grapes—all harvested from the most extensive estate in France, you can expect a drink that is rich in maturity and complexity, the perfect accompaniment to your year-end party.
For a gift that looks as good as it tastes, look no further than the metal Moët & Chandon’s End-Of-Year 2021 Limited Edition Giftbox. The understated cream and gold-embossed box captures the magic of tradition and togetherness, making it the perfect gift for all occasions. Moët & Chandon End-Of-Year 2021 Limited Edition Giftbox is available at 1855 The Bottle Shop.
9. Cloudy Bay
Hailing from the lush greenery of Marlborough wine country is Cloudy Bay’s latest expression: the Sauvignon Blanc 2021. Full of vibrant flavour, the bottle features a heady melange of fruity notes. On the nose, you’ll detect ripe passionfruit, white peach and just a hint of lime, while nectarine and citrus dance on the palate. As one of New Zealand’s most recognisable wine brands, Cloudy Bay has long established a reputation for complex vintages that age marvellously.
Their flagship variety, the Sauvignon Blanc, exemplifies this quality—intense and rewarding all at once. And if you present this to someone for the festive season, remind them to be patient—and know that it will be the gift that keeps on giving. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is available at Lazada and The Moomba Wine Shop.
A Tale of Winter by Glenmorangie captures the cosiness of being wrapped up in a winter jumper by the fireside during the snowy season. Aged in bourbon casks before being finished in Marsala wine casks from Sicily, the radiant amber 13-year-old single malt Scotch whisky bursts with flavours of fruit, honey, and Brazil-nut toffee, alongside wintry spices of cinnamon, ginger and clove.
Classic Marsala top-notes give way to hints of orange toffee, lavender honey and sweet rose on the nose, with a slightly peppery mouthfeel that develops into a long, lingering aftertaste reminiscent of your favourite Christmas spices. Take a sip and be transported to a snowy, but cosy, winter wonderland. A Tale of Winter by Glenmorangie is available at Asher BWS and Le Vigne Wine & Spirits
