It feels like it’s been a long time since we had cause for accessorising, hasn’t it? But as the world slowly begins to unfurl itself after more than a year of tight restrictions, it’s finally time to start adding some extra sartorial punch back in to our daily ensembles – even if our commute is still just a trip to the corner store and back.
Accessories have also long been the cornerstone of holiday gifting, particularly for Mother’s Day. So if you’re looking to spoil the mother(s) in your life with a special present to commemorate our collective re-entry into the world, look no further than GRAZIA‘s luxury accessories gift edit below.
SALVATORE FERRAGAMO EYEWEAR VARA SUNGLASSES, $465, SHOP NOW
“Sunglasses are an essential all year round, now matter where in the world you’re based. After all, who wants to squint their way to fine lines and wrinkles? Not me, and certainly not my mum either. This contemporary shape is the perfect size to shield your peepers from the sun (none of those Bella Hadid-esque tiny shades here) and the colour is flattering across a wide range of complexions. Add to cart!” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Loewe Anagram medium debossed leather tote, $3850 SHOP NOW
“I am often told by my own Mum that she expects no gifts for Mother’s Day. While the expression is well-intended a scavenge for the perfect gift does not become any easier. For the woman who has everything or instead expects nothing, a classic black tote will never let you down (in gifting or otherwise). The Loewe debossed leather carry-all is my luxury iteration of choice.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer
Prada Cleo Small Leather Shoulder Bag, $3100 SHOP NOW
“I’m picky when it comes to bags, but when I do fall for one, I fall hard – and this new hobo style from Prada is at the top of my list, both for me and my mum. The clean lines and classic shape make it the perfect intergenerational piece that truly suits everyone. This small size is also perfect for both of us, with enough room for all the bits and bobs my mum tends to carry around, while also feeling sleek and manoeuvrable enough for someone who travels light like I do. Perhaps a two-for-one deal, please Prada?” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Versace shell and starfish print silk scarf, $780 SHOP NOW
“Versace’s underwater-inspired SS21 collection has been making – ahem – a lot of waves in fashion lately, and it’s easily evident why. After a long period spent in isolation with little excuse to don fabulous prints, we’re all clamouring for a little bit of sartorial escapism. And what could accomplish such a feat better than an aquatic accessory that inspires dreams of warmer climes? My mum also loves colour, so this array of blue, gold, pink and purple shades should satisfy her inner chromatophiliac.” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Saint Laurent Le Maillon leather shoulder bag, $3390 SHOP NOW
“My hunt for my next investment bag has had me bouncing between Bottega and Bulgari for a few months now. But then along came this buzzy little Saint Laurent. The Le Maillon leather shoulder bag (in tan or black) made its debut in the spring of 21 and is modelled after vintage leather satchels meaning it won’t date as quickly as the padded cassette. And what mother doesn’t need another classic in her wardrobe?” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director
Tiffany T Diamond Wire Bracelet in 18k White Gold, $6800 SHOP NOW
“I’ve always been a Tiffany & Co. HardWear girl (and if I can’t sell the collection to you, perhaps BLACKPINK’s Rosé can), but there’s something about the clean lines of this Tiffany T Diamond Wire bracelet – something in me that knows how good it will look daintily stacked with my diamond tennis bracelet. But this isn’t about me, this is about a present for Mum – and I’m hoping she will like it so I can steal. To be continued…” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director
