Archlight Slingback Pump, Louis Vuitton 

An elegant reinterpretation of Louis Vuitton’s iconic LV Archlight sneaker, these pumps needs no introduction. Ultra-feminine and chic, the standout shoe is distinct for its modern design and vibrant colourways (this fuschia pink is one of the top colours of the year, though there are plenty of other shades to choose from). Plus, it’s made from the most comfortable neoprene with an oversized rubber sole and adjustable velcro straps that’ll be perfect for busy women on the go as the ultimate day-to-night accessory.


Cassette bag, Bottega Veneta

The holiday season is full of party bags, but what better of an arm candy investment than a bauble-adorned It-bag of this generation? Bottega Veneta’s pristine white woven leather chain Cassette has been on everyone’s wishlists for a reason, and this festive rendition complete with dangling golden ornaments will certainly be the life of every party when ringing in the new year.


Scarlet cashmere cardigan, Khaite

For the minimalist in your lives, you can’t really go wrong with a wardrobe basic and Khaite’s artful stance on knitwear check all the boxes. This navy cashmere cardigan features a flattering cinched waist that’s offset by elongated, fluted sleeves to provide an elevated approach to off-duty dressing.
