For that special ultra-luxe someone on your list this season, Elite Traveler has all the stocking stuffers.
Contemporary artist Rob Pruitt—known for his exuberant and often controversial works—has paired with Jimmy Choo for a new capsule collection of accessories, launching in November. Though on paper the two may seem like unlikely bedfellows, Pruitt’s playful, poppy updates on the brand’s signature styles are seriously covetable, if not for the faint of heart (Anouk pumps, $950, and Sweetie clutch, $895).
Monica Rich Kosann’s timeless trinkets are designed with longevity in mind: The multitalented jeweler, photographer and interiors expert envisions each of her pieces as an heirloom in the making. Her extraordinary one-of-a-kind lockets boast precious gems in stunning settings for pendants worth preserving (18K gold locket with blue star sapphire and white diamond accents on a 36-inch chain, $70,000).
Made with the same painstaking attention to detail as the house’s couture creations, Ermenegildo Zegna’s newest fragrance venture, Essenze, is a pure expression of Italian style. Handpicked bergamot from the company’s own crop in Calabria features throughout each of the collection’s five unique bouquets, developed under the guidance of four of the world’s most notable noses. From Sicilian Mandarin to Indonesian Oud, there’s a scent here for every Zegna man ($195 each).
Designed by the visionary Philippe Starck, this Zenith 24-light chandelier from Baccarat makes for the ultimate housewarming gift. Handcrafted in the 248-year-old French house’s decadent onyx crystal, it adds instant drama to any space
(available by special order; $82,400).
Make him look every inch the power player he is by presenting him with Dior Homme’s undeniably desirable crocodile briefcase. With its sleek silhouette and supple exotic skin exterior (entirely hand-constructed, of course), it’s just as exclusive as you’d expect—at press time, just one model was available in the US ($37,000).
Dubbed “All I’ve Ever Wanted,” Anya Hindmarch’s holiday-ready accessories collection features tinsel-adorned handbags, Christmas crackers and even an Advent calendar, all with adorable packaging inspired by vintage toys. This ornament-shaped Caspar clutch is pretty enough for your tree—but good luck keeping it there until Christmas ($1,595).
