It’s hard to shop for the friend who already has everything. You know—the one who doesn’t follow trends because she sets them. But these stylish items will make their eyes light up.


gucci grip

1. Gucci Grip Watch

Nothing says influencer perhaps like Gucci. This clean design fits snugly around the wrist and is inspired, believe it or not, by the world of skateboarding—“Grip” recalls how a skateboarder’s sneakers stick to the grip tape on the board. The timeless watch’s yellow gold PVD face has three windows to display the hour, minute, and date.

Buy it: Gucci, $1,800



2. RIMOWA Cognac Cabin Twist

Roll in style with this luggage and its modern spin on iconic design. Designed and engineered in Germany, the RIMOWA Original Cabin Twist in cognac brown is made from high-end anodized aluminum with eye-catching color details like leather handles, locks, and seal. This piece of luggage is durable yet lightweight and designed to fit in most overhead bins, so you can get to where you’re going in style.

Buy it: RIMOWA, $1,280


hansen coat

3. Sigfred Wool Hansen Coat

This long, classic style 100% lambswool coat is cut with Raglan sleeves for a strong, clean silhouette and a loose fit. Made in Europe, its chunky Portuguese fabric has a double-faced weave, and it’s softer than you might expect, but it still has the weight you want.

Buy it: Hansen Garments, €650



4. Nasomatto Baraonda Perfume

Part of the Nasomatto project, this fragrance conjures up a raw taste sensation. Famous perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri founded Nasomatto, Italian for “crazy nose,” in 2007 in Amsterdam, but he’ll never reveal the notes of his creations.

Buy it: Nasomatto, $185


schott flight jacket

5. A-2 Naked Cowhide Leather Flight Jacket

This rugged yet sophisticated flight jacket harkens back to the early flight jackets that truly kept pilots warm in their unheated cabins. Wear it with the collar and pile liner on or not for versatile looks.

Buy it: Schott NYC, $840


quiet dawn

6. Quiet Dawn Soap

This is some fancy-ass soap. We’re compelled both by its perfect square shape and its blue color, but we also love that it’s made from a naturally healing cactus fruit. With notes of lavender and bergamot, it’s both calming and energizing, too.

Buy it: Mote, ₩ 12,000–₩ 42,000


camille walala cloth

7. Cubitts x Camille Walala Cloth

East London–based Camille Walala makes geometric artwork with splashes of color, and her work can be seen on buildings all the way from the UK to Mauritius. Her “‘Walalacloth’” piece brings life to Cubitts’ cleaning cloths, with proceeds going to End Youth Homelessness. What’s more influential than that?

Buy it: Cubitts, $7


ruslan fedora

8. Ruslan Baginskiy Logo Fedora Hat

Made famous by Instagram, Ruslan Baginskiy hats are still hot. This 100% wool felt red fedora has a moulded crown and a grosgrain ribbon with an embroidered logo. The Ukranian hatmaker launched his label in 2014, inspired by the train conductor’s uniform in Paris.

Buy it: Farfetch, $300


rhythm throw

9. Dark Green Rhythm Throw

Made from 100% baby llama wool (a self-cleaning fiber), this throw blanket is understated yet comfortable for an evening curled up on the couch. The Rhythm Throw was designed by Copenhagen sustainable designers Aiayu. Wool was sustainably sourced in Bolivia with the factory cleaning 100% of its water post-production while reusing 75% of it. The factory also holds the WRAP-certification, ensuring production under lawful, humane and ethical conditions.

Buy it: Muuto, $369
