Words By Team Monde

Alexandra, Founder

After such a tumultuous year, for Christmas this year I’m simply hoping for a moment of peace and some quality time with my family.

Whether on vacation somewhere tropical, or celebrating Christmas Day with our entire family – I’ve had my eye on a couple of peachy pieces that would make welcome additions into my wardrobe all year round.

The gradual pink to orange ombre and gorgeous puffed sleeves of Skin‘s Cotton-voile Midi Dress is the ideal holiday party dress for me – casual, cool and colourful.

As a serious luxury accessories lover, opening up either Bottega Veneta‘s beachy twisted tassles shoulder bag or Chloé‘s pink gold large frames on Christmas morning would make me one happy recipient.

Pairing perfectly with the pink-peach dress, Artesano’s coral Lucca straw hat would make this year’s trips to the beach that much more enjoyable.

Loved for their quality pieces, Sydney Evan‘s Gold, Opal and Ruby bracelet would be the perfect addition to just about any outfit. I could even see this piece becoming an daily worn and loved item well into the future.

And for the final piece on my wish list, a cult classic beauty item from this year: Westman Atelier‘s Baby Cheek’s Blush Stick. Whether it’s for Christmas or not, I’d love to get my hands on this holy grail blush product as soon as I can.

This year for Christmas all I really want is to spend quality time with my family, healthily and happily!

However, there are a variety of new and established products that I’ve had my eye on throughout the year which would make great gifting options for anyone buying for me.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my absolutely dream gift would be a bottle of Le Labo’s Santal 33!

So luxurious and delicious smelling, I would be more than ecstatic to receive this absolutely lush fragrance. No joke, I dream about this fragrance.

Also, I’m an absolute lover of Ultra Violette’s original formulation, so given the opportunity, I would love to try out their Supreme Screen in the new year for glowy and protected beach skin.

For a rapid fire selection of cute and trendy pieces: I’ve also had my eye on one of the many lovely Staud shoulder bags, a pair of relaxed suede Birkenstock slip ons that have totally gone from ugly to cool, as well as the Poppy Lissiman Chesko sunnies with the yellow lenses.

Another vase like Country Road’s Mair Vase would go lovely with the rest of my expanding collection and would be the perfect container for the constantly rotating blooms floating in and out of our apartment.

Britt, Head of Community

This year my wish list is a healthy balance of items for the home and items for my wardrobe.

Within the last few seasons, I have really embraced vibrancy in both my taste for interiors and in the clothing, shoes and accessories I’ve been drawn to.

The combo of green and pink, and pink and red have both become go-to pairings and I’ve lately consistently drawn to items that incorporate one or two of these colours.

This iconic olive green Bench from design house Hay would make the perfect extra seating for our Christmas lunch (hosted by yours truly) and a fabulous indoor, outdoor statement every other day of the year.

The Aalto Vase by Iittala is something that’s caught my eye for about a year now and will be on my wish list until it’s in my home.

For wardrobe essentials I can’t help but include my fave brand Scandi brand Ganni.

This wool blazer was recently papped on one Miss Hailey Beiber and I’ve been besotted ever since.

Galen, Graphic Designer

From under the Chrissy tree, to under the gum trees.

My wish list is all about reacquainting with nature.

If you’d like to help me fill some of the blindspots lockdown has left in my outdoor attire, here’s how to do it.

I’m big on Nike’s ACG range, they’ve absolutely nailed the all conditions brief.

The Karst Backpack is a perfect lightweight hiking option and the Air Deschutz+ Sandals are a hot weather staple.

I currently own a pair, but need some shameless purple 90’s vibes in my life. Help me unlock my full 90’s potential by throwing in these Anonymous Ism socks for a sock and sandal scandal.

I’d love to hit the next beach picnic with this Opening Ceremony Tote, I love Bráulio Amado’s illustration work so I find this number absolutely killer!

Lock in a Brain Dead Cap and open air tunes courtesy of the JBL Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker. Slip, Slop, Slap.

Julie, Producer

This year’s wish list is all about high quality, timeless pieces that I know I’ll love for years to come.

With a real affinity for anything black leather with gold detailing, it was only natural for me to gravitate towards pieces like Deadly Ponies’ Mr Caiman Mini Black Crossbody Bag and Valentino Garavani’s Roman Stud leather sandals.

Whether I opt to wear them together, or mix and match with my other accessories – I can see myself sporting these two all summer long.

For something a little more sparkly, I have had my eye on Suzanne Kalan’s 18-karat gold, sapphire and diamond earrings for quite some time now. The perfect mix of feminine and sophisticated, these earrings are right up my alley.

For the home, a Baobab Collection large candle and L’Object Apothecary Bath Salts would be the perfect gift to make my home an absolute haven.

And for easy pleasing, you can’t go wrong with a Lancôme Absolue Premium Gift Set – the bigger the better.
