6 Must Have Gifts this Winter

By Chris Boyle


Whether you’re looking to redecorate, reinvent, or reconnect with friends, resolve to treat yourself in 2014 with these splurge-worthy finds.

Combat the season’s inclement weather without sacrificing style: Bally has launched a new line of water-resistant outerwear and accessories for both men and women. The Swiss house’s innovative rubberized leather treatment lends a luxe matte finish to pieces like this men’s Sedwich sports bag, so you can segue from the boardroom to the gym in an instant (price available upon request).

Jean Patou

When Jean Patou’s first scent, Joy, launched in 1929, it made waves as the most expensive fragrance of its time and became a symbol of luxury and inimitable Parisian style. This February, the house is releasing a new interpretation of the timeless scent: Joy Forever pays homage to the original with its key notes of Rose de Mai and jasmine, updated with a fresh twist to resonate with the modern woman (2.5oz, $190).

Lauren Adriana

London-based jewelry designer Lauren Adriana incorporates a mix of vibrant gemstones and unexpected metals like bronze and aluminum to create precious jewels with an avant-garde feel. Every piece that comes out of her Notting Hill atelier is unique and completely one-of-a-kind—much like her loyal clientele (18K gold, silver, and patinated copper Osiris ring with rutilated quartz, tourmaline, and diamonds, price available upon request).

In a testament to the French crystal house’s enduring appeal, Lalique has re-released a pair of iconic vases from two of the most important periods in design history, Art Deco and Art Nouveau. This decorative Oran vase, a special numbered edition, looks just as beautiful and modern today as its original debut ($9,900).

New Year’s Eve may have come and gone, but there’s never a bad time to break out the bubbly—especially since Krug Rosé, the storied champagne house’s first prestige cuvee rosé to be recreated on a yearly basis, is now available in a magnum size for the first time ($660).

Look out for the evening-ready slingbacks and stilettos, available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus locations, starting in February ($1,226).
