THE EXCEPTIONAL GIFT LIST

Next-level gift ideas for the season, curated by Luminaire and inspired by our collective of tastemakers and experts

New-School Glamour: Sonam Kapoor

"My mother used to be a fashion designer and a model so I have always been surrounded by beauty and art. As I did not have the resources, I started buying vintage clothes in Singapore aged 15 and later in New York. Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Valentino, Chanel – I found so many treasures and for so little."

Modern Minimalism: Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley

“Forever in my wardrobe: blazers by Totême, trench and tailored coats by Bottega Veneta, bodysuits by Khaite, leather pants by Joseph, and tailored trousers by The Row. Jewellery-wise, my Jessica McCormack Livewire Helix Ring.”

Parisian Chic: Loulou De Saison

"The codes of my brand, Loulou Studio, compliment my daily life well: simple, elegant pieces that go well together but that are also soft and caressing. I wanted to make everyday life easier and more fluid for me and for the women around me.

These days, I seem to live in Loulou Studio jeans paired with one of our sweaters, plus Khaite boots and a Chanel bag, and I am out of the door."

Fitness Forward: Kirsty Godso

"Fitness and wellness is such a gift and a beautiful part of our lives. My go-to brand for breaking a sweat is Nike - the Free Metcon 5 is my favourite training shoe, while the Zenvy high waist leggings and Alate minimalist bra are a must. I also wear the Beats by Dre Beats Fit Pro earbuds. Out of the studio, I turn to brands like Celine and Prada for a great handbag, Bottega Veneta for eyewear, Comme Si for loungewear, Acne for denim and Paris Georgia."

Skincare Saviour: Joanna Czech

"There was a moment in my life when it seemed I was single-handedly supporting Brunello Cucinelli’s brand, so much so that I ended up at a dinner with him in Solomeo! While I still love the comfort of Cucinelli, on a daily basis you are more likely to find me in Bottega, The Row and a lot of old Celine. I love R13, Maison Margiela and Rick Owens, which unfortunately are near my Soho clinic.

Skincare-wise, Vitamin A serum is important for anyone over the age of 28, and I love the Concentrated Retinol Serum by Environ (Sequence 4+ for my skin)."

Ultra-Luxe: Sabrina Elba

"My first investment was a pair of Louboutins – the Kate pump style with a round toe and plunging silhouette. I needed these shoes! Saving up for something special does not change when you grow older – the anticipation remains the same.

My most treasured gift from Idris is a Ball n Chain necklace by Jessica McCormack with a green emerald. I love the feel and weight of it on my skin and the stone which Idris chose is mesmerising."

Conscious Luxury: Julie Pelipas

"My brand Bettter is a line for modern woman which is very functional, unique: true fashion, true values, true quality. Each piece is derived from a tech solution that reimagines and upcycles menswear suiting - the beauty being that you can convert a blazer into a dress, or trousers into a skirt and create garments that you have not seen or worn before.

The Row is such good quality and I live my life in the Margaux bag. While very expensive, if I buy a piece, I know I will really use it and that makes me happy. Jewellery-wise, I collect Ana Khouri – such beautiful designs."
