Highsnobiety’s Holiday Gift Guides are updated weekly in order to take delivery times, new products, and quantities into account. Click here to explore the rest of our guides.
For years now, Highsnobiety’s team of product curators has delivered a weekly roundup of the latest and best in streetwear, sneakers, fashion and lifestyle products. Despite this, the now-illustrious 15 Drops has never taken on any sort of festive tone. So, in an attempt to buck this trend, the team is proud to present you with “The 15 Best Products to Drop This Holiday & Where to Buy Them.”
Having already outfitted you for “The Holiday Hike”, and helped you find the right gift for almost everyone in your life, we now turn our attention towards a different kind of theme: decoration. Moving beyond its stereotypical association to household wares, we have done our best to put forward a case for the wonders of decorative clothing. Packed full of uncanny, off-kilter silhouettes, the selection prompts all of you to look further afield, and embrace your more adventurous side with a selection set to blur any and all preconceptions.
Get the lowdown on alternative holiday decorating with a list of the best drops below.
Eckhaus Latta Tailored Puffer Jacket
Tailored Puffer Jacket
Words almost fail me when trying to describe pieces like this. The ultimate amalgamation of sophistication and fearlessness in design, Eckhaus Latta’s Tailored Puffer Jacket is a symphony of all the notes any brave fashion enthusiast should be hitting.
Marni High-Neck Striped Cotton-Velour Top
Francesco Risso shows out yet again with another round of blindingly bright silhouettes, expertly juxtaposed against the quirky refinement of Marni. An excellent base layer, the High-Neck Striped Cotton-Velour Top promises to add a pop of color to the sturdiest of outfits.
Our Legacy Delicate TV-Print Mesh Long-Sleeved T-shirt
Now, I am sure some of you are greeting this piece with undue skepticism. Indicative of Our Legacy’s venture into more of what many will label, androgynous territories, this mesh T-shirt is the epitome of decorative holiday wear. It’s delicate and subtle enough to highlight any white button-down shirt, or be worn over T-shirt-like layers for a pop of much-needed texture.
ASAI Tie-Dye Jersey Turtleneck Top
If you’ve been keeping your finger on fashion’s pulse, then the work of emerging British designer A Sai Ta and her namesake brand ASAI is probably on your radar... and if it isn’t, it should be. For all the men who haven’t been scared away by the fact that this is a womenswear item, the right styling is all you need to set this turtleneck off right.
Eckhaus Latta Printed Wide-Leg Jeans
Printed Wide-Leg Jeans
One look at these and I am transported back to the disco dance floors of the 1970s. I wasn’t born then, but if I was, and Eckhaus Latta existed of course, I would have definitely worn these. Flaunting a daring decorative print throughout, these jeans are a step-up from your standard wide-leg counterparts.
Our Legacy Straight-Leg Organza Trousers
Having run the rule over these with my colleague Louis in a recent gift round table, Our Legacy’s over-pant pants are the only kind of holiday decoration your outfit needs.
Sies Marjan Sterling Degradé Bermuda Shorts
If you’re wishing for pieces this holiday, then take the bigger picture into account. And that picture is one in which the sun is shining, and you’re wearing these flashy Degradé Bermuda Shorts from Sies Marjan. If you’re not feeling this idea though, you could take a leaf out of Our Legacy’s book and wear them over some winter-ready pants instead.
Maison Margiela Tabi Bounce Split-Toe Leather Boots
Brands coming out with designs that are truly iconic is one thing. But brands who are able to build on such iconic designs without damaging their appeal are on a whole other level. Maison Margiela ushers in the successor to its Techno Tabi with its Bounce Split-Toe Leather Boots. A great piece sitting perfectly at the intersection of form and function.
Converse Chuck Taylor 70 Hi-Top
Chuck Taylor 70 Hi-Top Sneakers
If the boots above are too far flung for your liking, here’s a pair of Chuck Taylor 70s in a luxurious pink suede. Perfect for adding an edge of intrigue to an outfit, bright, poppy shoes are the bread and butter of brands like Converse.
NEIGHBORHOOD. Fur Beret
Nothing exemplifies the idea of decorative apparel quite like an animal print. Japan’s NEIGHBORHOOD. presents a fitting, leopard-themed accessory, constructed from a considered palette of low-key branding, fierce patterning, and seasonal textures.
Marni Rectangle Tortoiseshell-Effect Acetate Sunglasses
Back with another Marni triumph, these sunglasses are just as good in the winter as they are in the summer... with a lens so light, you could even start wearing them around the house to flex on your relatives. Because we all know the holidays are as much about showing off as they are for spending time with your family and friends. Right?
Martine Rose “Promising Britain” Silk Scarf
A more fitting piece of textile satire never existed...
Martine Rose “Promising Britain” Silk Scarf
Finding a good chain can be challenging. While we might have the tendency to exaggerate and throw on as much metal as possible, I believe the real allure lies in the refinement and delicacy of pieces like this Double-Chain Necklace from ALL BLUES.
Summerland x Mister Green Crystal Pipe
Telling someone this is “decorative” might be your only chance at getting out of being labelled anything unsavory. Summerland x Mister Green are here to push the boundaries of your supposed moral.
Face Vessel Mini Single Bloom
As many of you might be wondering where the actual decorations are, I present you with this tiny vase from Face Vessel. Even though its completely separated from the products above, I feel if any of the aforementioned brands were to venture into glassware, the outcome wouldn’t be all too different.
