Women’s luxury gift guide
The latest addition to Tiffany & Co.’s T collection is this T1 Narrow bracelet. Representing courage, strength and optimism, it’s designed with the collection’s signature angular lines and horizontal T-bar. Crafted from gleaming 18ct rose gold to a slender silhouette, it’s set with 1 carat of round brilliant-cut diamonds which have been painstakingly set around one half. Wear it alone for subtle daytime sparkle, or stack it up with others for more impact.
It’s safe to say that Cartier is a name that needs no introduction, but if for some reason you’ve been living under a rock, the Guirlande de Cartier bag is a beautiful prelude to the elegance and high-quality craftsmanship which has seen the French label lauded for. In a unique hexagonal shape, this handbag has been cut from fine leather and imbued with the brand’s signature and mix of top handles and shoulder strap for versatile wear.
Putting the Yves back in Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello has re-focused the brand on its iconic YSL signature since taking the helm in 2016. Homing in on the label’s coveted footwear, the designer replaces heels with the interlocking logo on these Opyum sandals. As charged up and energy-filled as the designer’s catwalk shows and power-dressing collections, they make a high-shine statement with open toe and patent leather.
Like many artists before him, Tom Ford finds himself looking at his garden and contemplating the balance between the beauty of the rose and the fierceness of its thorns. Rose Prick eau de parfum is built around a trilogy of roses: Bulgarian, Turkish and the unique Rose de Mai. But this is no basic floral: it’s alive with Sichuan pepper, turmeric and tonka bean, and its musky dry down lasts wonderfully.
The Soothing Hydration Collection is an indulgent four-piece set featuring a selection of La Mer’s best-loved treatments. The Concentrate is infused with a concentrated form of renewing Miracle Broth™ to help calm the appearance of redness and irritation, while the Eye Concentrate diminishes the appearance of dark circles. For a finishing touch of renewing moisture, look to the iconic Crème de la Mer and The Lip Balm. Arranged in a limited edition cosmetics case, it makes a truly indulgent gift for the beauty-lover in your life.
There’s a special story behind La Grande Dame that only Veuve Clicquot can tell so well in champagne. Christened in tribute of Madame Clicquot herself, it reflects on the excellence of the pinot noir grapes sourced mainly from the Grands Crus and the House’s historic plots. This 2012 Brut case and bottle is designed by Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama: note the polka-dot décor, her signature style reworked like champagne bubbles. Didier Mariotti, the house’s Cellar Master, describes it as “playful, lively, laughing.” We’ll drink to that.
