The LYMA Laser
The notion of salongrade skin treatment at home gets me weak at the knees. This infra-red 500mw LYMA Laser rapidly stimulates cellular renewal without harming the epidermis. It reaches the deepest layers of skin, fat and muscle to promote collagen production from within.
Alexander McQueen Black Double-Breasted Jacket
A double-breasted jacket is a gentleman’s wardrobe must-have and this shetland Alexander McQueen blazer, with its cinched waist and dropped shoulders, creates a flattering inverted triangle. If you’re aiming to turn heads at new year’s parties, this should do it.
Assouline Art Life by Sig Bergamin
Sig Bergamin’s interiors are a pleasing antidote to ubiquitous minimalism, and Assouline’s Art Life by Sig Bergamin features some of his greatest. Vivid images of rooms in which Warhols, Hirsts and Lichtensteins coexist harmoniously turn this coffee-table book into a conversation starter.
Bvlgari B.zero1 Diamond Ring
I’ve been looking for a perfectly stackable, versatile ring and it seems I’ve found one. Bvlgari’s amphitheatric B.zero1 diamond ring is the closest I’ll get to visiting Rome this year, and its elegant spiral band has me in a chokehold.
Louis Vuitton Extra Large Coat
I strongly believe fashion and humour belong together. This voluminous Louis Vuitton coat re-interprets a classic with its exaggerated, boxy cut and whimsical aeroplane buttons. Streamlined, elegant and surprisingly versatile, it creates a polished and striking silhouette.
Saint Laurent Vassili Boots
I’m convinced the spirit of Yves himself inhabited Anthony Vacarello when he designed these Saint Laurent Vassili Boots. The harmony of a pointed toe, tilted block heel and patent leather is a lesson in men’s ankle boot done right.
Tom Ford Silk Pyjama Pants
After a night of partying, I love nothing more than slipping into silks and passing out — and succumbing to a fever dream in these silk pyjama pants by Tom Ford would feel like bliss. I’ll probably get so addicted I’ll start wearing them outside.
