While last-minute holiday shopping can be hectic and unorganized, sometimes good things come to those who wait. With some of our fave brands launching holiday limited editions or partnering with other brands for collaborations, here are some items we’re adding to our wish list this holiday season. —Vicki Duong
moose knuckles x telfar. Two of our favourite brands have partnered yet again with the second collection from Canadian luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles and New York-based brand TELFAR. With a collection of outerwear and handbags crafted with water-resistant materials featuring the TELFAR quilted logo, any item is sure to be a hit this holiday season. Our personal fave is the shopping bag in silver ($295) crafted with a water repellant shell.
kylie by kylie cosmetics. You can always count on Kylie Jenner for a festive collection of cosmetics, this year is no exception. Their limited edition holiday-inspired collection features a 16-piece palette ($70) boasting mattes, shimmers, metallic and glitter housed in a cute reindeer component. We adore the playful shade names, such as Glowing Red Nose and Holly Jolly Reindeer
lush & lazy oaf. A match made in heaven, Lush x Lazy Oaf’s partnership not only brings you the classic Lush products you know and love, but the bright and cheerful aesthetic of North London’s Lazy Oaf. The laundromat-inspired motif features playful characters, checkerboard patterns and cheery colours.
gucci beauty. Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle over the Christmas season? Our go-to as of late is the Lunaison Glitter Lipstick ($63) from Gucci Beauty, a bright red packed full of glitter that leaves an ultra-fine layer of iridescence. Plus the tube itself features a gold art-deco design that elevates any makeup bag.
smash + tess & star wars. A collab so nice, they did it twice. Vancouver’s own Smash + Tess recently launched their latest round of products with Star Wars featuring cosy hoodies and matching joggers, quilted jumpsuits and even kidswear and petswear to leave the whole family feeling the Force.
