good tidings

‘A sad tale’s best for winter,’ according to Shakespeare, and it takes a certain temerity to disagree with the Bard. However, my own intention when planning our festive issue (my first as acting editor-in-chief) was to cram it with uplifting treats, both visual and literary, to raise your spirits during a dark and chilly month. And so, within these pages, you can travel with us to the Cairngorms, where, accompanied by pipers piping and ladies dancing (not to mention several well-trained wolfhounds, a herd of reindeer and some friendly Highland cows), we weave a fashion fantasy along the banks of the River Dee. You can curl up with the winning entry of our short-story competition, admire Salvador Dalí’s Christmas tree and solve your present dilemmas with our luxurious gift guide, which…

BECKY SHARP Dazzle the magpie in your life with an array of pearls, plumes and precious gems worthy of Vanity Fair. VALENTINO’s sequin and feather outfit is as scintillating as Miss Sharp’s bons mots, especially when accessorised with a luminous CHANEL cuff and a diamond ring from CHOPARD. Once the GIVENCHY dancing shoes come off, OLIVIA VON HALLE’s embellished eye mask will help her get her beauty sleep. KIM PARKER CLARISSA DALLOWAY As well as fragrant FLOWERBX blooms, the consummate hostess requires head-to-toe sophistication in order to ‘kindle and illuminate’, as Mrs Dalloway does.

‘For me, the best part of going to parties is getting ready with my friends,’ says Nicola Glass, the creative director of Kate Spade New York, of her inspiration for the brand’s Holiday collection, themed around a girls’ night out. Dresses in tones of frosted spearmint, candied lilac and pearl grey are designed to brighten the darkest days of the year; a black sequin pyjama set and an emerald velvet jumpsuit conjure up a celebratory feel. Tinsel tweed separates, metallic turtlenecks and glittering headbands offer a sophisticated take on seasonal sparkle, while a range of statement outerwear includes full-length shearling and teddy-bear coats. ‘The Kate Spade woman is real, confident and youthful of heart, no matter her age,’ Glass says. ‘My goal is for our pieces to bring her joy.’…
