With Christmas just over a week away I thought I would join in and share with you my Ultimate Christmas Wishlist. This year is the first year I haven’t asked for a single thing off anyone, but that doesn’t stop me looking right? So if British Pounds were no object, what would be at the top of my list?
The Comme des Garçons Play line has been a firm favourite of mine for a while now so I would love to add a black shirt to my line up along with this sweater. I really like how the logo is blacked out on the shirt, which makes it quite subtle. The hoody is in a classic grey colour way, and can be worn with pretty much anything. Staying with clothes I love this A.P.C Oh L’Amour shirt. I actually ordered it on Black Friday along with my other purchases, but ended up sending it back, not being able to justify £65 on a t-shirt going into December! I picked up a load of A.P.C from END in the Boxing Day sales last year so have everything crossed this will still be around then. The final shirt is the Saint Laurent Blood Luster tee with the black fang design. I think this would look great paired with some torn blue jeans and the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 Lo also on the list.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know by now I’m a bit of a sneaker hoarder, so I couldn’t let a wishlist pass without a few pairs included. As mentioned I’m a huge fan of the 70’s Converse; I love the vintage look of them and the build quality is superior to your regular Chuck Taylor’s – a timeless classic for everyones collection. Next up, I have included a pair of my favourite Yeezy Boosts from Adidas. The first two releases from the Yeezy Boost line will always be my favourites. Over the Turtle Doves I would go for the Pirate Black variation as I think they could be worn with more outfits and I am also less likely to ruin them! The chances of ever owning a pair is unlikely, but a boy can dream! The final pair, is the Original Achilles Low from Common Projects. These have featured in many of my wishlists, I’m actually quite surprised I haven’t got a pair yet. Maybe it’s something to do with the price? Whatever it is, hopefully they’ll be in my collection in the New Year.
On to entertainment and technology, my iPhone6S is starting to fail so I could do with an upgrade to the new iPhone7 Plus. I really like the new matte black colour option so would definitely go for that when I get around to ordering a new one. Another Apple product on my Wishlist is the new Apple Watch and in particular the Space Grey Aluminium Case with Black Woven Nylon Strap. I like the idea of the watch however I’m not 100% convinced of how much I would use this yet or how it would fit into my everyday life but I’m sure I could adapt easily if I opened one on December 25th! I’ve also included a selection of vinyls for my ever-increasing collection.
The final two items on my Ultimate Christmas Wishlist come from Louis Vuitton and Maison Margiela. Firstly, how nice is this bag? When LV first revealed the Monogram Eclipse Collection I was obsessed. After always wanting a LV holdall, when I saw this bag in the collection I knew one day I have to have it. The Keepall Voyager combines the classic sophistication and look of a classic LV holdall with a modern sporty twist, thanks to the leather bands along the body and textile straps. As my holdall has just broken, this would be a more than welcome replacement! Last but not least, I had to include Jazz Club Eau de Toilette by Maison Margiela.
