Holiday Gift Guide | Victoria Berezhna, Contributing Editor, London


Gifts for..

1. THE TASTE-MAKER. Channelling Bianca Jagger and her iconic white suit becomes easy in this white tuxedo jacket (similar here and here).

2. THE HOSTESS. Nicknamed ‘the last Swan,’ not only is princess Marella Agnelli one of the greatest beauties of the century, but also the most cultured and elegant. This book by Rizzoli makes the ideal gift for the one who loves hosting soirées and impossibly elegant brunches.

3. THE TREND SETTER. Roksanda Ilincic is one of the most interesting up and coming designers, and her crepe jumpsuit is perfect for the girl who would rather set trends than follow them.

4. THE PRINCESS. While an intricate lace dress would usually be the gift of choice for the romantic one who lives in a fairy-tale, it is this embroidered cape by Biyan that can be worn over a gown for the opera or crepe pants for a dinner party.

5. THE FOODIE. Behind a façade near the Louvre you will find France’s oldest kitchen supplier. Established in 1920, E. Dihillerin houses utensils Cordon Bleu chefs only dream of. Luckily, their online store sells the most exquisite tin-lined copper stockpots for the girl who appreciates a fine-cooked meal.

6. THE ONE WHO HAS IT ALL. There’s always the one who is incredibly difficult to buy gifts for, simply because she owns most of the items you can think of. A girl, however, never has enough monogrammed silk pyjamas. Available here, here and here.

7. THE SOCIAL BUTTERFLY. These Sergio Rossi iridescent gold edged sandals make the perfect statement shoe to gift the friend who hops from dinner to fundraiser to gala to party.

8. THE SOPHISTICATE. The grandson of Diana Vreeland unveiled a range of perfumes inspired by his legendary grandmother’s personality and travels. Simply Divine Eau de Parfum evokes the 1920s, yet is modern and elegant, with a unique blend that magnifies the opulence of the tuberose flower.

9. THE JET SETTER. What could be more perfect for adventurous soul who spends her days wandering the world, than a Leica camera to capture her extraordinary escapades?

10. THE BEAUTY CONNOISSEUR. Caron powder puffs are luxurious feathery light orbs of goose down, with a satin ribbon bow, making one feel she is getting ready for a ball, rather than a day out in town.

Victoria | Contributor, London
Fashion Contributor, London

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.

2 Notes
  • Gorgeous picks! LOVE the cape.
    Interested to see you live in the South of Spain. I have also lived there (Seville) for the last 14 years and now split my time between Spain and London ;-)

    • Hello Vanessa! I’m in love with the cape too. Yes, I lived in a town called Sotogrande for the past 6 years, but now study at university in London, so I’m more or less in the same position as you. x
