Love Red? Here are the Best Luxury Holiday Gifts

The Dandelion Chandelier Holiday Hues Gift Guide is a series of curated lists of all-of-a-color luxury items and experiences for those who love a particular hue – or whose gift recipients do. It’s an easier way to shop (your eye can focus on just one shade in the visual cacophony). And when the presents are open, everything looks great together! What could be better for your holiday Instagram photos? Color-coding is clearly the way to go if you want to look pulled-together for posterity. First up? Well, of course, we begin with red. Sure, red is the obvious color for Christmas gifts. Some might even say it’s basic. But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea. And it also doesn’t mean that as a giver, you have to be obvious, or trite, or even twee. Red gifts can be given at the highest levels of originality, elegance and authority. You just have to look in the right place. After all, red is the signature color of iconic luxury brands like Baccarat, Cartier, Valentino and Ferrari. …

Second Chance at the Masters at Louis Vuitton Right Now

We told you so! Earlier this year, here at Dandelion Chandelier we shared our experience with the Louis Vuitton Masters collection, designed by artist Jeff Koons. We raved about how inventive it was, and gave kudos to LV for creating the ultimate luxury product: beautiful, scarce, priced just a tiny bit out of reach, but still attainable, and with just enough options to make the shopping experience fun without being overwhelming.  We noted that this is how a luxury brand creates and sells an object of desire, and we urged you, dear reader, to go and see it for yourself. If you happened to buy one of the bags from the original Masters collection, definitely wear it and love it – they are going to be collector’s items. Now comes word that the first Masters collection was so popular that LV and Koons have now released a follow-up: there are 5 new artists now featured on a range of LV leather goods. Don’t miss your chance to see them – as with the first delivery, …

What Are the Best Luxury Items to Shop For in November?

The Luxury Shopping List is our monthly overview of the essential items to have on your acquisition radar right now – what they are, and where to get them. We’ve done the scouting so you don’t have to.   Fur or flip-flops? Or furry flip-flops? What should be on your luxury shopping list in November? Here at Dandelion Chandelier, we find that luxury shopping gets seriously confusing this time of year. Resort collections arrive. Cute sandals and strappy stilettoes meant to dance the tropical night away flood the shoe department. But there are also fun faux furs everywhere. There are chic performance ski clothes to investigate. There are also winter white sweaters and furry boots and knit hats with pom-poms on them for après-ski (whether you spent the day on the slopes or in the sauna). We find this disconcerting. It’s a psychic disconnect that takes some of the fun out of shopping this month. Nevertheless, we’re not going to be deterred. Here’s the report from our reconnaissance mission to ID the necessary items and …
