Three bloggers go shopping for Christmas gifts in the Goldenes Quartier. One window will open every day – today Anna from Mangoblüte reveals what we should put under the tree this Christmas.
Decorative homewares, colourful accessories, exciting pattern and colour combos, toying with ethnic styles and cultures: that’s what the Milanese family company Etro is all about. Creative director Veronica Etro is a dab hand at carrying you off to foreign lands with her collections.
Exclusive gift ideas from Mangoblüte:
Jumper: “At Etro I discovered a stunning jumper that you could give to your fashion-conscious dad or partner. From behind, it looks like a perfectly normal, grey jumper but from the front, its bright splashes of colour will take you by surprise and put you in a good mood all day.“
Handbag: “For your mum, there’s this unusual, very colourful handbag that will put a smile on her face in the winter as well as the summer. What I especially like about this model is its diverse patterns and the subtle clasp whose gold colour makes the bag look very elegant even though the pattern is actually very casual. Pro tip: you can take off the handle and hang it on another bag.”
