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.
With an item by Alexander McQueen, you know for certain that you are not placing just any old gift under the Christmas tree. Insights into the exceptional fashion designer’s oeuvre are provided by the picture book Alexander McQueen: Unseen by Robert Fairer – that, too, is an ideal present this festive season.
Handbag, clutch – Des & Jen about their wish list:
“Alexander McQueen is near and dear to Desi, because she used to work for the fashion label and is still friends with her former colleagues there. And during the fashion weeks in Paris, we kept feeling drawn back to see the collection one more time – and every time it inspired us anew. We think that Sarah Burton is an incredibly talented designer who is furthering Alexander McQueen’s vision in a wonderfully impressive way.
We have opted for three bags: the Flying Unicorn Knuckle Clutch and the embroidered Knuckle Box Clutch made of silk with a surrealist diamond motif are definitely eye-catchers for the evening.The satchel bag made of black calfskin is very well suited for everyday wear, as it can be worn in a variety of different ways.”
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.
