Highlights in the gift guide include a stunning sterling silver braided Bracelet encrusted with black sapphire, and then men’s double wrap bronze ring bracelet with a modern edge – delectable treats for your special man or woman this Christmas.
British handbag brand AEHVA London has been a favourite with celebrities since its first season, and has now been recognised as one of the best by luxury online shop 1st dibs.
The collection, shown at London Fashion Week, is characterised by strong colour palettes and unique structures. Luxury and style are built in through careful tailoring, from zip detail and shading to piping and delicate buckles.
Whiles shapes are generally rounded, the overlapping of shapes creates a softly geometric style. This is complemented by an array of exotic and interesting materials and accessories, from bamboo style handles, silver and bronze latches and snakeskin.
Agent Provocateur’s 2012 Christmas gift guide features some sumptuously sensual and sensational pieces.
The ultimate indulgence this season is the Cordeliyah Kimono (pictured). At just a mere £1950 ($3141), this kimono is heavily embellished with lace trims and beading, baring more than a hint of a Christmas surprise. However, if this is somewhat out of your budget, there are tempting treats a plenty, which include the Red Passionate! range, featuring a deliciously red festive colour palette.
Agent Provocateur has also released a ‘Gentlemen’s Buying Guide,’ which holds the hand of the bemused other half to help ensure a successful shop and guarantee some gasps of appreciation come Christmas night.
