I enjoy the idea of a curated closet of functional, well-loved pieces. These selections are the perfect wardrobe for the practical man. The sleek Arcteryx Veilance Monitor LT Coat is hands down the greatest coat ever made! It is fully waterproof, warm yet lightweight, and equipped with both interior storage pockets and exterior hand warming pockets. A new publication worthy of being on every coffee table is Brutal Magazine. It takes art, fashion, and food, and twists them together into something fresh and original. A must read! My current everyday boot is the Virgil by Visvim. They are incredibly comfortable and can be worn in every season. For a timeless sweater that you will wear for decades, The Elder Statesman has you covered. They are made from the softest felted Italian cashmere and are a luxury item you will wear all the time.
These are the perfect gifts for the sophisticated woman. Arts & Science has created a beautiful interpretation of the classic blazer. The indigo-hue wool is soft like cashmere, and wears like a treasured denim. This is a piece she will wear time and time again! Sofie D'Hoore has created the most chic cape made of heavyweight wool, detailed with a charming leather and buckle closure. And, every woman should have a cape! Sofie D'Hoore's pilates trousers are a cool, oversized style perfect for everyday wear. Issac Reina has crafted a sleek handbag made from the softest leather. It is a functional, timeless shape she will love and carry for years.
For the truly special person in your life, here are gifts for those with an appreciation for unique, rare objects. Iittala's Polar Night Owl is a rather Picasso-esque art objet, mouth blown and handmade in Finland. The Monastiri mouth blown vases by Yali of Murano have a sense of profound peace and understated beauty. The rich, deep inky hues of the Indigo Storm pieces by 1882LTD make for a truly remarkable collection of ceramics. These gifts are a charming addition to a home. For the lady who has everything, the perfect gift is William Welstead's rose cut sapphire ring adorned by pave, set in white gold. This is truly a forever keepsake.
