Simply exceptional


1- Tipple trunk
T.T.Trunks's Millésime trunk keeps your champagne chilled and bubbly in an ice bowl big enough for four bottles. The trunk's main body is a "Tête-à-Tête" wine cellar holding 12 bottles at a programmable temperature of 6-16°C; champagne flutes are stored in the doors.

2- Designer bubbles
Dom Pérignon champagne inspired fashion designer Iris van Herpen to create Metamorphosis for this Festive Season, channelling the notions of evolution and rebirth inherent in its wonderful Vintage 2004 champagne.

3- Pipe dreams
Desvall makes artisan-crafted shisha pipes in mouth-blown glass, hand-polished metal, leather and carved reindeer antler from Sami herds. A beautiful balance of traditional Swedish craftsmanship and state-of-the-art engineering!


4- Music mania
Apart from its sleek design, the Ensemble, Devialet's first complete music centre, sports the most awarded audio system ever (the Devialet 120), a pair of Atohm GT1 Special Edition Devialet speakers plus exclusive SAM technology that precisely reproduces the recorded acoustic pressure.

5- For indecisive dandies
Boucheron's Epure cufflinks in their black-lacquered wooden box mean you'll never again risk a style faux-pas! Two white-gold bases onto which you clip any one of six pairs of interchangeable tops. In white gold, malachite, onyx or amourette wood.
