It’s that special hour of the year again when I select my 10 gifts Christmas suggestions. It is always fun to do this list; this time around there are not gadgets or silly trends….I only selected things I am truly exposed to on my daily routine. Some of them are also products that I worked with, therefore I became so familiar that I ended up loving them so much:
I am so jaded with so much catchy silly songs …. it is always good to look back and fall in love all over one more time with the fab Israeli artist Dikla, who is back in my life to give me what I needed: beautiful voice giving amazing interpretations …her very well known version of Annie Lenox’s “Here Comes the Rain Again” is simply divine !!
2 STEPHEN JONES “SOUVENIRS”
A must have book by a truly genius for those who love art, fashion, style and beautiful hats…however this is not simply just a book published by Rizzoli, this is an extraordinary look at the magnificent life of milliner Stephen Jones. Bravo indeed !!
3 AMANDA LEPORE T SHIRT
Because she is Amanda Lepore and must I say more? (image by Josef Jasso)
4 BORN BRIGHT DOLLS
The perfect dolls by artist Bridgette Bad are an invitation to a fantasy and very real world coming from her mind. This self taught sculptor from Ukraine who believes “art is an accident” never ceases to amazes me…
5 DENIM SUNGA by CA-RIO-CA SUNGA CO
Definitely the coolest male item for the upcoming 2017 summer beach season. I am so in love with this sunga, featured in the CA-RIO-CA SUNGA GO S/S 17 show by designer Gil Even, and it is not only because I styled his fashion show, but because this vintage look is hot hot hot….
6 EAU DE LEONORA
Those who know me well, know that Angel by Thierry Mugler is the perfume I have been wearing for at least 20 years now…but I had to open space in my life for the Eau de Leonora fragrances…I simply couldn’t resist it, and apparently everybody else standing next to me also…so fantastic!
7 SOL DE JANEIRO
This beauty brand is the light that was missing in your life; and every new product they release is pure fun and perfection…and it smells insanely great !!
8 GILSON MARTIN BAGS
Fun, colorful and happy are definitely what comes to my mind when I think about these great bags.
9 FERNANDO CARPANEDA
Five Eyed Dog
From painting to sculpting, Carpaneda is a true underground artist whose creativity and skills are solid and unique. Every single phase of his work is intriguing. He produces what he wants, how he wants and uses social media to market and showcase his process generating sales before his pieces are finished. Fernando even publishes his own magazine CARPAZINE. A truly brilliant artist in command of his own career. So don’t waste time and acquire something from this Brazilian artist based in New York….while you $till can !! 😀
