Tom Ford Velvet Jacket
Okay, I know I’ll hardly get an opportunity to wear this, but, just look at it. I got a Tom Ford suit last year and the quality is so good. Admittedly, you’re paying serious dollar for it, but my, oh, my, look at this beauty.

Longchamp Leather Suitcase
This is a beautifully proportioned, soft leather suitcase that you’ll be itching to use. It'll make you even more excited about going away. Made in France for a decidedly undesigner price, this is a timeless shape and comes in lots of colour options. I also like the minimal branding.

While I’m over the clothes, the Gucci home stuff, while ridiculously expensive, is where my energy has gone. This is made by Richard Ginori - Kering is the parent company as well as of Gucci - and it has something mystical and masonic about it.

Balenciaga Dry Cleaning
Nothing says ‘fashion’ like a classic denim jacket bonded in plastic film so it looks like you’ve just left the dry-cleaners with the wrapping still on. We get to the end of the year and I’m still loving what Balenciaga are doing. They know how to twist, make you screw your face up and then jump on board. See more It's A Wrap!

Silver Cutlass Necklace
There’s something really fun and original about this necklace. I’m all about chest decoration ATM - see here - and this is a nice mix of design, precious metal and individuality.

There's nothing worse than getting to the airport and having to scramble getting out your laptop and toiletries to pass through security with an audience of badly dressed holidaymakers looking on at how messy your packing is.
Well, let me introduce Austrian travel brand, Vocier. Their C38 travel suitcase is a slim and nimble upright bag which it perfectly sized for hand luggage. Inside, you’ll be able to fit an entire wardrobe for a week-long trip: including shoes, shirts, trousers and up to two suits.
The C38 uses the exclusive Vocier magnetic hanger system, which secures your suit at the perfect angle within the bag to maximise the overall space.
Vocier's transparent C14 Wash Bag - which looks much better than the flimsy clear plastic bag - also fits perfectly within the C38 and is easily accessible by a zip at the top of the bag. This can also fit your laptop for swiftly putting through the x-ray machine..
To top it all off there is a perfectly shaped passport holder in the handle, so you know where it is all times. The only thing it can't do is make sure your plane takes off on time!
