Allude Xmas Calendar: Gift Guide for Him
Women are different when it comes to wishes. If he asks what we might like to find under the Christmas tree, we have a link to our Amazon wish list handy as well as lots of magazines plastered with post-its. And how does it work the other way around? “Oh, you know, just surprise me.” Very funny! But don’t worry, he certainly won’t expect any of these six abundantly stylish SOS gifts. In the best sense of the word, of course.
Coffee table book „Factory: Andy Warhol“
The American photographer Stephen Shore was only 17 when he began to hang out at Andy Warhol’s legendary Factory, the studio where New York’s creative scene gathered. Among them musicians, such as Lou Reed and singer Nico, and fashion model and It-Girl Edie Segdwick. During this time, from 1965 to 1967, Shore took countless pictures, providing insight into the dazzling cosmos of Andy Warhol and his clique. Leafing through the coffee table book Factory: Andy Warhol is a fascinating backstage tour.
Parrot Swing mini drone
Will the artfully packaged deliveries from our online store soon “drop from the sky”? We don’t know that yet, but we do know what men are excited about. A mini drone, for example. And not just any, but this particular one (see picture), which can be conveniently controlled with your smart phone and is equipped with an autopilot. If he can fly out the trash with it or fly in the croissants on Sunday – why not?!
Cashmere sweater by Allude
When it comes to fashion most men are rather a bit, let’s call it low-maintenance. While the question of next summer’s key pieces can rob our sleep as early as October, he is happily celebrating his pragmatic “all-year wardrobe”. How can you win over a trend sceptic to become passionate about fashion? Try this classic round neck sweater made of cotton, alpaca and merino wool. After all, we don’t need to tell him that this look is also really “hot” right now.
Leica instant camera
In our digitized world even the sight of a notepad made of paper (!) can cause nostalgic glances. Those were the days, when we still had to wait for the ink to dry on stationery paper and “e-mail” was something from America … Leica SOFORT proves that digital and analogue can work well hand in hand. It works like a digital camera, but the pictures are printed wonderfully old-school, like those of a Polaroid.
Black Pepper by Comme des Garçons Behind the simple name of the new cologne by Comme des Garçons lies profound poetry. The description of the scent mentions spicy peppercorns, which collide in the midst of infinite darkness. This collision is followed by warm and woody notes of musk, cedar and tonka bean. A poem to spray on, wrapped in midnight blue glass.
Cashmere scarf by Allude What men do with their scarves (and hats and gloves and umbrellas!) Is one of the last unsolved mysteries of mankind. Just like the offside law – which is complicated! For the first problem there is only one solution: to buy a new one or give it as a gift. And best choose a scarf that is so soft and has such a wearable design that he’ll never take it off and then “mislay” it.
