Give the perfect sneaker gift with the Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY All Star Chuck ‘70 OX’.

The sneaker features a black canvas upper, while the oversized red heart graphic is printed at the quarter panel. Also included within this distinct design is the rubber toe cap and traditional 1970s vulcanized rubber outsole. Classic branding can be seen within the sneaker’s comfortable insole. Exposed stitching emphasizes the elevated sneaker, completing the overall aesthetic. This footwear staple upgrades any sneaker collection along with any outfit. Consider the Converse x Comme des Garçons PLAY All Star Chuck ‘70 Hi for the high-top sneaker lover.

This silhouette blends seamlessly within any athletic sneaker collection.
A graphic tee is another viable option for the holiday. Fashion label Emotionally Unavailable is inspired by hopeless romantics, which is highly prevalent in the Emotionally Unavailable Airbrush Heart Logo L/S Tee. Featuring a cotton-cut silhouette, the breathable tee features a screen-printed melting heart graphic that takes up the front of the shape. Additionally, a rib-knit neckline and cuffs are placed, and the rest of the look is tied together with an additional mbroidered melting heart motif at the left cuff. Another love-inspired offering from Comme des Garçons PLAY is the Pastelle Red Emblem T-Shirt. Continuing with the heart inspiration, this tee is crafted entirely from cotton and is characterized by the iconic embroidered bug-eyed red heart motif at the left chest, which spotlights the design. The crew neckline ties together the rest of the aesthetic.
The G-Shock Women’s GMAS2100 Series embodies technical yet sleek aesthetics for a more functional approach to the traditional gift. The design is crafted from resin and features mineral glass with neobrite detailing. The watch is both shock and water-resistant and further accentuates the technical and modern silhouette. Another functional yet sleek gift idea includes the Comme des Garçons Polka Dots Wallet. This design is elevated and fit for everyday use, as it features a coin pocket and four credit card slots. Gold foil branding is placed throughout, while the cowhide leather construction sets itself apart from the traditional offering. The polka dot pattern and gold-tone zip fastening provide additional detailing and security. The perfect pair of glasses can confidently complete any outfit for a different approach, making itself an ideal option for the accessory lover. The Oliver Peoples Casian is crafted from complete acetate and incorporates a thick design, while the silver hardware provides additional detailing. The sleek aesthetic is made in Italy and embodies a modern approach to everyday eyewear.
The gift of scent is also an important option to consider when thinking of the perfect gift. Our exclusive FEATURE 001 Candle evokes scents comparable to bold and complex aesthetics. Notes of pepper, tobacco life, teakwood, and dark musk encaptivates any room it is placed in. The exterior of the candle is crafted from ceramic and includes a matte black finish.
