THE HOLIDAY EDIT
Isabel's Gift Picks
What Attersee's founder Isabel Wilkinson Schor is giving this holiday season.
A Luxe Gift for Anyone, of Any Age
Without fail, when I leave home between the months of November and March, it’s with our Herringbone Wrap (pictured here on my aunt, Barbara) tied loosely around my neck or thrown over my shoulders. In 100% alpaca, our three colors — Light Camel, with a blanket stitch; Charcoal, with a leather edge, and our new Navy, with luscious fringe — are interchangeable and look great with any coat. Bonus: they look just as good folded over the corner of your sofa as a throw. $595.
A Bag That Does It All
With a snap closure and now in black velvet, midnight satin and tapestry jacquard, our Brea Bag is a joy to wear and an absolute relief to flat-pack. Earlier this week, I managed to carry mine throughout the entire day: to the gym (with a credit card and headphones inside); to a lineup of meetings (adding a small notebook and pen), and out to dinner (with a travel-sized hairbrush and a charging brick). A small bag that does a lot of work. $295.
A Festive (and Very Flattering) Vest
In rich olive and black velvet, our best-selling Sculpted Vest has a universally flattering shape with a soft cutaway at the waist. I’ll be wearing it to holiday parties with our high-waisted Tailored Trousers or our Satin Column Skirt — and with beat up jeans by day. $595.
Sumptuous Velvet Shoes for Everyday
Our collaboration with Drogheria Crivellini — the family-run company based in Fruili, Italy, that has made Furlane slippers since 1955 — continues for a second season. Now in sumptuous velvet, their signature Mary Janes and Slip-Ons are comfortable for everyday, and would make for a delightfully failsafe gift. $295.
A Cashmere Dress to Wear All Winter Long
In super-soft Loro Piana cashmere, our caftans are extremely luxurious and easy to gift due to their roomy fit. I wear mine over a turtleneck and boots when it gets especially cold. (They’re also easy to style with a belt for a more defined waist.) This piece will keep a very lucky person warm — while looking good — all season long. $995.
A Quilted Blanket for The Beach (or Bed)
Fastened with our braided belts, the Quilted Blanket comes in a range of colors and makes for an ideal picnic perch. A perfect gift for anyone who loves grassy lawns and beaches — like my daughter Sylvie — or for someone looking to add a splash of color to the foot of their bed. $495.
