2nd Window: Presents from Saint Laurent


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.

Saint Laurent has always been French artists’ favourite fashion label. And nothing has changed since the arrival of new creative director Anthony Vaccarello: Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Dillon all flocked to the fashion weeks. Wherever they are, you’re guaranteed to find savoir-vivre and a fantastic party. Which means that the latest collection – by Hedi Slimane, who left at the beginning of the year – is accordingly filled with party wear and a good portion of punk.

Leather jacket, bag, card holder, high heels – Des & Jen about their wishlist:

“We have chosen the following items as they are ideal for a night out. We love wearing leather jackets (especially in black – a classic!). Every woman should have one in her wardrobe – they are timeless and you can combine them with almost any outfit. As we are constantly being invited to events, we often opt for smaller bags. Which means the “Kate” satchel and the card holder are perfect for such occasions. We love high heels and think they make every woman look more graceful. We have chosen red to match the bag and because they will help us turn the heads of everyone in the room.”


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.
