holiday gift guide | editor’s wish list : victoria



1. This beautiful, beautiful silk robe is perfect to lounge around on Christmas morning, with a glass of champagne in hand, emulating the silver screen sirens from the 1950s.

2. An impossibly perfect Chanel clutch (available in stores) in the form of their most popular perfume, Nº5.
3. Hand-sewn glimmering crystals are strewn over this gorgeous pink satin blouse, making it the ideal classic statement piece for the holiday.
4. This pretty Chloé embroidered tulle skirt will look ideal paired with a black cashmere sweater and some statement pumps.
5. An iconic photograph by Helmut Newton will make an excellent addition to the living room or bedroom.
6. Christian Dior’s “Monsieur Dior” ring is adorned with a bird in gold finish and pearls, and makes an adorable gift that will remain the ideal ring for any occasion.
7. Even Burberry goes golden for Christmas, with its limited edition light gold nail polish.
8. Because a powder-blush hue is the ideal colour for the holidays, Valentino’s crystal-embellished suede pumps (also, a more demure option without crystal embellishments available here) are a fashionista’s favourite.
9. The world of the jet set is captured in this beautiful coffee table bookfeaturing the likes of Lee Radziwill and Elizabeth Taylor on opulent yachts and masked balls.
10. For all the vintage lovers, a French silver vanity compendium from the 1930s is simply perfect to make an elegant ensemble unique.

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.
