On our wish lists - FARADAYS
With just a few days until Christmas, we asked a few members of the Faradays team about the most coveted items on their holiday wishlists - as there's nothing quite like vicariously shopping through the eyes of others for a little gifting inspiration of our own, especially when there's little time to spare!
From precious home decor pieces to forever wardrobe favourites, read on below to discover the dreamy gifts we'd each be delighted to receive under the Christmas tree this year (or which we may or not be indulging in ourselves...)

Constance, Co-founder and Creative Director

Alaïa Mina Tote 25" in White

"I’ve had this on my wishlist for more than six months, after falling in love with the style when it first arrived in store.

To me it’s a classic, failsafe investment for all of my future summers. I can imagine wearing this now, but also wearing this when I’m in my 60’s - cocktail in hand on the French Rivera (fingers crossed).
My Pinterest board is currently filled with Claudia Schiffer and Brigitte Bardot on holiday in the Med and I feel this bag hits all the right notes for a hopefully chic and 'Blondes have more fun' kind of summer for 22/23."

Edward, Co-founder and CEO

Saved NY Serpents Cashmere Throw

"I initially had my eye on the Leopard Print Throw from our first buy from the Brooklyn based cashmere brand, but it sold out before I could secure it for our home. The new Serpents Throw is an exceptional alternative that I'll be hinting at heavily to my wife before I miss out again."

Tower, Head of VM and Superbrands

Loewe Flamenco Bag in Navy Anagram

"A timeless design from Loewe, the Flamenco has been a staple style by the Spanish leather house since the 70s.  Adjustable and practical with a removable leather strap, this bag can be worn cross-body, as a shoulder bag, or as a clutch. I love that you can also change the shape quite drastically with the drawstring top.  If Santa was good to me this year he would deliver it to my house in Navy Anagram - so classic."

Chelsea, Store Manager 

Alexandre Vauthier Jacket Dress 

"This is a piece I actually couldn't wait for Santa to give me and had to purchase for myself - like all things Vauthier it is the perfect balance of feminine, edgy, versatile and flattering across all body shapes so would make for a fabulous failsafe gift option."

Sassetta, Head of Marketing

Givenchy City Low Sneakers in Denim Blue

"I'd love these for summer - super cute, easy to run around in all day, ultra comfortable, and their white soles also mean they'd be perfectly appropriate for a boat day on the harbour.  If I could have a sneaky second option, I'd also adore the new Xerjoff Golden Dallah EDP -  I can’t walk past our tester section without giving it a spray! The notes of fresh exotic spices, incense and amber feel very festive."

Amelia - Head of PR and Communications

Ginori 1735 Catene Vide Poche

"Ginori's Catene Collection looks so fresh and modern but many are surprised when they learn its design has been around for a century, originally illustrated by famed architect and artist, Gio Ponti for the Florentine tableware brand.

I have a couple of pieces from the collection in my home already and they bring such a chic sense of timelessness to any space. I'd love to own the whole collection one day; for now my eye is on the Vide Poche - it's the perfect size for offloading all of your jewels before cooking or bed time, or for layering on the coffee table."

Olivia von Halle Issa Gown

"In my opinion, comfort doesn't need to mean sacrificing style, and what better way to float around the house during the holidays than in Olivia Von Halle? I'm particularly obsessed with the latest floral print in their cult-favourite Issa gown silhouette, and I'd happily wear this gorgeous piece straight out of the front door and into public to have lunch in the sun with my girlfriends. A glass of good wine, a gorgeous dress, and a giant hat = summer sorted!"

Brigit, Head of Buying

Kora Basque in Black - Bordelle

"Bordelle is one of my favourite brands; I'm a big fan of their attention to detail, quality and sustainability ethos. The Kora Basque is a beautiful statement bodice with a flattering silhouette, intricate construction process and adjustability to achieve the perfect fit -  I'd wear this with denim on more casual occasions and with a high-waisted skirt for a dressier night out."

Nicole, Digital and E-Commerce Manager

Christian Louboutin Kate 100 in Loubi Red 

"When I first saw images of these online, I knew I had to have them! They're such a classic shape and colour, easily recognisable but simultaneously subtle, given the red tone is not reserved only for the soles. They're incredibly comfortable for a high heel, and would be my first ever pair of Louboutins - making them even more special."

Stories of Italy Riviera Candle

"I've had this one on my wishlist all year. I love the colour and the scent - like a fresh sea breeze, it just smells like summer. I also like the utility of the Murano glass encasement - once you have burned the candle you can use it as a vase or pen holder."
