A hankering

December 14, 2007
Perhaps I’m just a little late with my top gifts but I do prefer to delay any Christmas-related matters as much as possible. I despair when I hear of people venturing into the bustling streets of illuminated cities scouring the streets in hunter-gatherer fashion to retrieve pressies…in October. Anyhow, late or not, I’ve just prepared a Christmas gift list, a wish list, a hit list of sublime presents, call it what you will…

Bigarade concentrée by Jean-Claude Ellena[yes, THE nose behind Hermès’ scents]

An overwhelmingly citrus scent, I mean this in the most positive way.

100% Leather Ankle Boots from Jil Sander

Robust and simultaneously alluringly sensual. Delicious.

Bernhard Willhelm SS 08

This look has me hankering after another bomber to add to a burgeoning collection…

Lanvin by Dean L. Merceron

A history of, arguably, the most influential house of all time.

    Yo, I love reading your blog and keeping up with the latest guys tips. I was wondering if you were going to do a Holiday gifts post – have you seen the new Diesel Fuel For life limited edition fragrances? The packaging is really amazing. There’s a small vial on a pocket chain, or a bling bottle wrapped in gilded chains – Diesel is certainly picking up on the vintage trend here. Thought you should hear about it, & keep up the good work!

    Those Jil Sander boots are alluringly sensual, almost sexual.

    I REALLY want that Lanvin book. I don’t think I have sense of the house’s style pre-Elbaz (which is kind of sad.)

    I agree – those Jil Sander boots are fantastic
