The Goldenes Quartier’s advent calendar, curated by the Viennese fashion bloggers Desiree and Jennifer, is overflowing with festive inspiration. Gift ideas from the stores in the Goldenes Quartier.
Founded in Rome in 1945, Brioni’s aim has always been to produce handmade ready-to-wear menswear. Their so-called prêt-à-couture first conquered the catwalk at the Pitti fashion fair in Florence in 1952. Not least thanks to famous brand ambassadors – both factual and fictitious – such as Al Pacino, Nelson Mandela and James Bond – the label’s suits and timeless accessories have been hugely popular ever since.
Fragrance, shirt, leather cap, gloves – Des & Jen about their gift ideas:
“We are always on the lookout for special scents. We find this unisex fragrance (woody/citrusy) a perfect Christmas gift because it is something you can share with your loved one. Our father never left the house without perfume – and its scent remained in the house for a long time after he had gone.The male members of the family have always worn sporty yet elegant clothes and set great store by high-quality materials, which is why we have chosen the checked shirt (with leather details on the back), the leather cap and gloves.”
Desirée and Jennifer are twins, Viennese with Croatian roots, and they are passionate about fashion and all things beautiful. In 2013 they launched their successful blog Des & Jen, where they regularly report on fashion, music and lifestyle from all corners of the globe. Also on Instagram they are already followed by 95000 fashionistas.
