While ‘ability to pick out a romantic silk scarf by Bvlgari‘ is not something you want to have on your ideal partner’s checklist, it can’t hurt to dream. Be it for Valentine’s Day, Galantine’s Day a day before, or just any day of the year, a gift — whether for yourself or someone else — is a kind and thoughtful gesture. Fall in love with these grand gestures from experts in love and fashion including Tiffany & Co and Cartier.
How much more romantic could it get with the word ‘love’ right there in its name? Here we’ve selected a yellow gold for her, and for him, a more subdue white gold. These simple, matching bands are studded with subtle diamonds.
For him, the 40mm model has a domed blue patterned dial and blue leather strap. Meanwhile, her Omega’s calibre sits behind a mirrored casebook with a metalised “Her Time” pattern. It also features diamond paving along the case, a crown with a single diamond, and gold hands.
The Virtus Bag was christened so after the Roman deity standing for strength, courage and character. They’re crafted in the finest quality leather with a central gold-tone metal Barocco letter V embellished by acanthus leaves from Versace’s signature motif.
He’ll love the simplicity of the Makers Bar Pendant designed in warm 18k gold and accented with a bold chain. As an added option, the bar pendant can be matched with other jewellery. For her, the Paloma Graffiti collection has a variety of heart and arrow pendants in 18k white gold with diamonds.
Bvlgari has a collection specially for her that is designed around the serpent icon. Of the capsule collection, we’ve fallen for the cross-body bag with a heart-shaped pink charm coiled by a snake, and the cardholder for jazzing up everyday totes or luggage.
Make the commitment of bracelets for the love of each other, and Chopard. For men there’s the black braided leather bracelet bearing the icon of the Mille Miglia collection – the herringbone pattern of 1960s Dunlop tyres. For women, we’ve picked the Happy Hearts bracelets featuring a mother-of-pearl or diamond heart.
Gucci’s Cruise 2020 collection is recreated from the archives, which is why it looks familiar, yet new. First, the unmistakable Tennis 1977 sneaker comes in an all-new Mickey Mouse design but best of all, is that its a unisex design. Same could be said for the 1955 Horsebit that can be hung from the shoulder or worn cross body, with Gucci’s famous GG motif.
Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has designed the latest DiorTravel collection with suitcases, backpacks, vanity cases and totes that are all simply stunning. Of the collection, we’re most drawn to two pieces that defy gender roles: the mini travel case and Dior Book Tote which now comes in camouflage.
Two icons from Ferragamo, the Fiocco Vara and Gancini, highlight the romantic collection consisting of accessories, jewellery and leather goods. The famous Vara shoe comes in a high heel sandal, complete with a bow. And for men, we’ve selected the two-tone reversible and adjustable Gancini belt for subtle style.
