8th Window: Presents from Prada


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.

Miuccia Prada’s autumn/winter collection caused a furore with saddle bags worn close to the body, with jaunty sailor hats, as well as with her collaboration with the French artist Christophe Chemin, whose pictures and graphics she had printed on fabrics. What’s more, she turned bags’ contents inside out: small notebooks, key rings with original trinkets – all of this now hangs on the outside so that there is more space on the inside. What for? Well, that remains the owner’s secret.

Perfume set, sunglasses, key fob – Des & Jen about their wish list:

“We selected Prada’s perfume set because our mother collects flacons and always brought home the latest fragrances. We, on the other hand, love collecting sunglasses and our absolute favourites are unusual and stylish models – like “Cinema” in purple. Ever since we were children, we have always been given lots of cuddly toys. The teddies or bears at Prada are also collector’s items and are perfect handbag accessories.”

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.
