Kim Winser is a lover of all things simple and streamlined and the Winser girl deserves nothing less than luxury in her life. Gifting can be a little tricky: what to give, how much to spend? We like to buy something we would appreciate ourselves and want friends and family to like it as much as we do. The Winser London accessories cover all price points and all age demographics. I’m sure you will agree that teens to grannies often ooh and aah over the same things, whether it’s heart-throbs
Gone is the time when we looked for something age appropriate. For my money, I’m giving the cashmere beanie to a wide range of ‘girls’. The rabbit fur collar at £150 would likewise be a gorgeous gift and would enhance a biker jacket or a camel coat. Cashmere wraps anyone? The regular wrap at £150, or the oversized at £250, both available in 10 colours, are dreamy; definitely for that special someone.
Guys are you listening at the back? The Jewellery is lovely in crystal and fresh water pearls. The bracelets start at £15 and look great worn together. The necklaces, likewise, can be worn alone or more than one strand at a time. This season’s nifty bestselling trend is the poncho or serape, in cashmere or wool blend with cashmere and in lots of colours.
Red of course is very Christmassy but if you look at all the colour choices there is black for your existentialist teens and twenties, lots of neutrals for any colour as long as it’s, well, not a colour – that includes me. All the knitted accessories and knitwear are also available in pretty colours; pinks and blues. Let’s do our shopping online and enjoy it. The cruel crush out in the city is all too much, let’s save our sorties for a long lunch swathed in cashmere – well we had to buy one for ourselves.
