London and Bangkok-based accessories brand Death In Paris (read my piece about the brand here) beguils with its pretty ways with plastic. Take the ‘Veranda’ is a clear plexiglass nugget with gold hardware, black lather pouch insert and removable leather and chain strap. The heady mix of mandarin, juniper, and pine in Russie Blanche’s Banya Detox Bath and Shower Oil are a welcome antidode to the raw winds of winter. Named for a charismatic young Victorian thief, Jack Sheppard is the impertinent younger brother of East London label A Child of the Jago. This map tie recalls the streets where, for a short 20 odd years, Jack strutted his stuff before he was hung and buried near the brand’s new store on Charing Cross Road. There’s nothing nicer than a snuggly new knit; Mint Velvet offers some of the understated best – and most affordable. Apart from offering a T-shirt customisation service at Selfridges, cult label A Bathing Ape has created a gold foil t-shirt exclusively for the department store this Christmas. You can’t beat a lovely animal charm and Stephen Einhorn’s silver polar bear is deliciously cute and season-specific. TOMS adds sunglasses to its ethical offering: with every pair of these silver Gigi shades sold, TOMS give sight to a person in need. But the shoes are getting nattier by the minute. Check these navy cable knit suede women’s Nepal boots. Whistles, the go-to shop for basics with a twist, scores again with this beautiful assymetric white top. Sling over a pair of boyfriend jeans. Finally, this 9 carat white gold star ring from Goldsmiths is so pretty and delicate and Christmasy, I want to slide it on my finger right now.
