This holiday season, offer presents that combine beautiful and functional objects in thoughtful ways. Consider the selection below with your gift list in hand. Assembled for recipients ranging from practical to more playful, each item was carefully designed or selected, ready to surprise and delight.
No. 1 - Party Feet
Bellerose socks, which have become a major go-to accessory for so many winters, are still a great match for neutral suiting or off-duty wear. They are made in France by a small family business which has been producing socks for five generations. Crafted from a soft wool and cotton blend, they are the perfect winter warmers. They are designed in colour blocks, polka-dots or simple ribbed monochromes, adding a subtle pop of personality to your looks. These pairs are as comfortable as they are stylish.
No. 2 - The Star Within
Made in Holland by true craftsmen, the Hepburn shoes are Bellerose's reinterpretation of the classic ballet flats. It is available in three different versions.
No. 3 - Ideas Collectors
We are proud of our paper kraft notebooks, which were developed in collaboration with the eco-responsible L/C/K company in Paris. They were designed and hand crafted with care and thoughtfulness. They are solid, reliable and yet different from most. They are available in two formats (A5 and A6) and are also rechargeable. As the folks at L/C/K would say, "Use it slowly, and fully".
No. 4 - The Book of Wonder
It is no news that Bellerose is very much appreciative of beautiful interior design. Our window displays and shop designs are a great reflection of this special bond. And there is no better present to suggest than the ones we love for ourselves. Therefore, it was only natural to recommend this beautiful hardcover photo book by photographer Leslie Williamson. Modern Originals presents the innovative homes by both the icons and unknown vanguards of European midcentury architecture and design, including Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Finn Juhl, Robin and Lucienne Day, and Gae Aulenti, to name a few.
