Eight fabulous fashionista gift ideas Add to ...

For the makeup master

Modigliani once said, “When I know your soul, I will paint your eyes.” But who’s got time for that? This eye shadow and blush set, a kind of DIY kit, allows experimentation with three distinct styles: minimalist, impressionist and modernist. Stila Masterpiece Series Eye & Cheek Palettes, $49 at Shoppers Drug Mart (www.shoppersdrugmart.ca).

For bauble heads

In the 1920s, Duke Fulco di Verdura created dramatic Maltese-cross cuffs for Coco Chanel, who wore them night and day. These spectacular followups from his company, Verdura, pick up where he left off. Bravo! Maltese Cuff by Verdura, $47,500 (U.S.) at Mindham Fine Jewellery (www.mindham.com).

For the reflective type

A celebrity favourite famous for her devotion to animals, Stella McCartney hits all of her markers with this retro-chic mirrored clutch: No animals, celebrities or celebrity animals were harmed in the making of it. Stella McCartney Mirror Clutch, $2,480 through www.stellamccartney.com.

For drama queens

Every night is an evening at the opera with a pair of extra-long, exuberantly hued gloves covering your mitts. Bonus points if they’re lined with cashmere, as these versions, made in Italy, are. Leather opera gloves by Mark and Graham, $258.52 through www.markandgraham.com.

For highbrows

Something that makes the eyes look beautiful should be beautiful to behold. Enter style guru Isaac Mizrahi’s whimsically patterned tweezers for Tweezerman, which are as precise as they are pretty. Isaac Mizrahi x Tweezerman tweezers, $30 each at Sephora (www.sephora.ca).

For the wild one

At the risk of overselling this handcrafted leather bomber jacket designed by the Canadian design duo Smythe for Roots, the life of whomever you give it to is guaranteed to get cooler. Smythe Bomber by Roots, $988 at select Roots stores and through www.roots.com.
