The Sloane Street gift guide: the fashion fanatic

Christmas gift ideas for the most stylish people in your life

30 November 2022

There is no bigger gifting conundrum than picking something for the fashionista. But, happily, there is no better place to find something than in Sloane Street’s array of luxury boutiques – yes, even for the toughest of giftees. 

These aren’t just any socks, they’re knitted cashmere ones from Brunello Cucinelli, and there are few people who won’t enjoy slipping their feet into them. An Hermès scarf is similarly luscious to handle and will be worn with pride for years to come.

Anya Hindmarch’s gold Crisp Packet clutch bag has eye-catching appeal and is perfect for a party look on New Year’s Eve and beyond. Valentino Garavani’s sparkling sequinned handbag will be, too.

But perhaps they are a disciple of Miuccia? If so, go for Prada’s insignia ring. A devoted follower of trends? Try a logo-jacquard bucket hat. Saint Laurent connoisseur? A monogrammed leather cardholder will be just the thing (and practical).

Beautiful footwear never goes amiss, so head to Harvey Nichols for a dose of sparkle from the heel brand of the moment, Mach & Mach – its distinctive crystal-embellished shoes are perfect for party season. For men, we recommend a pair of classic suede Gommino driving shoes from Tod’s. Its women’s boots are ideal for sauntering down Sloane Street in the rain, too. 

A classic checked scarf from Burberry (which can be personalised with initials), and Bottega Veneta’s gloves (with its signature intrecciato woven leather) are both great for this time of year. But no matter the weather, a pair of sunglasses will always be appreciated, especially ones from LA eyewear expert Oliver Peoples

If you’re still not sure, then why not opt for a Sloane Street gift card and let them choose for themselves? 

And remember – if in doubt, just ask for a gift receipt.
