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.
The results of the latest collaboration between the designer duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino – as admired at the fashion weeks this spring – can already be bagged as classics and stashed under the tree for a wonderful surprise on Christmas day.
Ballerinas, bracelets, card holders, bags – Des & Jen about their wish list:
“We opted for these ballerinas and leather bracelets because they remind us of our childhood. We did ballet for a few years and still have the shoes at home. Plus, we love the film Black Swan! These black ballerinas remind us of it a lot, and you can wear them for special occasions such as Christmas. As children, we used to sell shells as well as handmade necklaces and bracelets every summer in Croatia, which is why we went for the Rockstud leather bracelets. They are a very personal gift – and you can combine them with the Rockstud card holder and bags!”
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.
