LOUIS ROEDERER CRISTAL 2008
There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a bit of bubbly—and you can’t go wrong with a classic like Cristal.

LOUIS VUITTON WINE CASE 1 BOTTLE
If you’re anything like us—or like our Haute Wine Society members—you and your loved ones enjoy fine wine.

So of course, the need for a chic carrying case for your special bottle is just necessary, and not surprisingly, one of the most iconic names in French luxury—Louis Vuitton—has you covered, with its Wine Case 1 Bottle, with space to hold one special bottle of wine and two wine glasses. The elegant case boasts the signature Monogram print and comes with two crystal wine glasses, while the case itself is also customizable in alligator skin at an additional cost. Priced at $7,800; click here for more information or to purchase.

FENDI BAGUETTE
If she’s somewhat of a handbag hoarder—like myself—then you can’t go wrong with a classic like the FENDI Baguette. Pictured here in Golden Leather, the metallic coloring adds a fun but still sophisticated touch to this style, which I first fell in love with after watching Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw character on the iconic HBO series Sex and the City carry the Baguette (note: “it’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette!”). Priced at $2,100; click here for more information or to purchase.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN ‘LOUBHOUTAN’ CAPSULE COLLECTION
She really can’t ever have enough Loubs in her closet. Christian Louboutin’s LouBhoutan capsule collection with 13 exclusive styles, draws inspiration from the varied colorings of the Himalayan sky and the enchanting nature of the Bhutanese architecture. Each has such refined and gorgeous details, like hand-sculpted and hand-painted wood platforms, representing the culmination of six years of collaborations with students from School of the 13 Royals Arts and Crafts of Thimphou, Bhutan. Pictured here is the ‘Mystic Clouds’ 160mm Suede Ankle Boot with Handcrafted Wooden Platform in ‘Version French Lover.’ Priced at $3,200; call 212-396-1884 or email contactus@hauteliving.com for purchase inquires.

DIOR X RIMOWA CAPSULE COLLECTION
When it comes to top-of-the-line luxury travel cases, RIMOWA has become my go-to brand. The LVMH-owned company has really elevated its offering from the signature aluminum finish in the past year, collaborating with brands like Supreme and most recently with Dior, where the two House’s created a line of lust-worthy travel cases featuring signatures from both (now available in the Miami Design District pop-up boutique). Pictured here is the Hand Case with the emblematic Dior Oblique design, dating back to 1967. Priced at $3,460; click here for more information or to purchase.

LOUIS VUITTON MINI CAPUCINES BAG
To me, the Capucines bag is one of the most iconic bag silhouettes of all time. Its classic shape will stand the test of time, despite trends that will surely come and go, which is why it is a bag type that I have started to collect. The Mini size is such a delight, and available in such a variety of leathers and finishes with a slew of embellishments, each is sweeter than the next. Pictured here is the Emeraude Green color with a top handle and two-way strap in python skin. Priced at $4,950; click here for more information or to purchase.

DIOR LADY ART #4
Elevating the iconic and timeless Lady Dior bag is the now annual Dior Lady Art collaboration, now on its fourth edition. This year, the House called upon 11 globally-renowned artists to reimagine the classic piece, each putting their own aesthetic spin on the style. Pictured here is Rina Banerjee’s version, priced at $10,000; click here for more information.

GUCCI GG FLORA HAT BOX
Touting the House’s distinctive and historic Flora motif—first introduced by Vittorio Accornero over 50 years ago—over classic GG monogram, the Gucci GG Flora Hag Box is just such a chic travel accessory. The Italian-made travel bag reinvents a traditional hat box silhouette with a more modern approach, and uses beige/embony GG Supreme canvas—a low environmental impact material—with pops of bright red in its leather trim. A detachable shoulder strap is also available for ease of use/functionality. Priced at $5,800; click here for more information or to purchase.

CHANEL EARMUFFS
Though I’m not at all fond of the cold weather, I do love cold weather accessories, like these super luxe CHANEL Earmuffs. Crafted from shearling and cashmere, the style is actually very warm and functional, and of course, incredibly chic as CHANEL always delivers on that front. The style is available in two color ways: ivory on black or black on ivory, pictured here. Priced at $900; click here for more information.
