She’s The One: What She Wants This Mother’s Day
Last week mothers Carolina Herrera and Monica Rich Kosann shared their Mother’s Day wish list.
This week we asked our buyers and editors to share their top picks for mom… follow our quick guide to getting her the best. We’ve handpicked a loving selection of gifts that are most in tune with the season’s definitive style. So for this Mother’s Day, we say – be bold, be colorful, be floral in your gift giving.
If she’s a woman that loves adventure… look for statement pieces, like Valentino’s Punkouture bright tote, accented sunglasses, an audacious Oud, an impactful lipstick, or comfy yet chic smoking slippers from Charlotte Olympia that speak to her horoscope sign.
If she isn’t afraid of brights… think color blocked clutches from Khirma Eliazov or Proenza Schouler, brightly printed scarfs like McQ Alexander McQueen‘s or go big with a gold and lapis bracelet from Ippolita.
If she has a feminine style… go for 3.1 Phillip Lim’s classic handbag with a floral print, a vintage deco printed dress, new Spring scents or Erdem’s garden-like Spring scarf.
Remember, the focus is on her this Sunday. So go on, and celebrate by getting what she really wants.
Makeup artist, Napoleon Perdis, shares how the women in his life have influenced his career..
“Every Mother’s Day I like to celebrate and honor the women in my life who helped me achieve my dreams. My wish for women everywhere is a day filled with happiness, love and family. And of course a little pampering never hurts… I can truly say that if it wasn’t for my mum, I would not be who I am today. Her glamorous approach to life gave me my first glimpse of makeup as an entrée to romance and glamour. As Mother’s Day approaches, the mothers (and muses) in my life are always top of mind. My mum, my wife Soula-Marie and now my four daughters are my empresses and they constantly inspire me through their beauty, passion and wisdom.”
