Ottolinger Puffer Jacket
The Ottolinger Hooded Down Jacket embodies a blend of sustainability and avant-garde design. Crafted from recycled polyester, this jacket first caught our eye on the AW23 runway for its quilted pattern, textural dimension and Japanese-style wrap design featuring a knotted detail. This unstructured silhouette offers a loose fit, giving the air of nonchalance Ottolinger is known for (not to mention an added level of comfort). Winter is coming — we can’t deny it any longer — so if a Puffer Jacket is a must, this is the one.
Carne Bollente’s ‘Tapesthreesome’ tapestry isn’t just any blanket – it’s a wild blend of homeware and art that takes cosy comfort to a whole new (and unexpected) level. Teaming up with artist Anastasia Bay, this tapestry features a playful woven jacquard graphic depicting a threesome, adding a cheeky energy to any space. Whether you use it to keep warm, throw on your bed for a cosy night, or hang it on your wall for a decor statement, one thing is for sure — it is eye-catching. Get ready to turn heads and spark conversations with this unique collaboration.
Acne Studios presents the epitome of winter warmth and style with its Ginger Brown Hat. Crafted from a luxurious chunky alpaca blend, this hat features cuteness 100 ear flaps, adorned with contrast stitches at the edges. Underlining the individual identity within Acne Studios’ FW23 men’s collection, elevate your winter wardrobe.
LA Walker’s ‘Hot Legs’ High Heel Candle Holders are a surrealist fusion of functionality and art. Bringing to life a playful interpretation of the potential that lies behind a high heel, these handcrafted ceramics (made in Berlin) add a touch of uniqueness to any home.
Indulge in the epitome of footwear with these iconic Clogs by Dries van Noten. Renowned for their avant-garde yet wearable designs, these clogs are no different, featuring leather-trimmed calf hair in a rich dark brown hue, embodying the designer’s unwavering love of blending luxury with the unexpected. Almond shape toes, block heels, and a typical-clog slip-on style, these clogs bridge the gap between high fashion and art.
The Katharina Dubbick Venus Hoodie in black is our seasonless must-have. A subtle statement, the Venus Hoodie is crafted to ensure a luxurious feel against the skin, elevating your wardrobe with Katharina Dubbick’s distinctive aesthetic. Now available at Glamcult Store.
The Eros Torso vase by Niko June is a captivating piece within a series of one-off vases created from up-cycled plastic. Each piece is individually heated and shaped by hand, resulting in a truly unique creation designed by Oliver Sundqvist and Frederik Nystrup-Larsen. The artistic description of the Eros Torso series is that of “magnetic allure”, in which the play of reflections is said to be reminiscent of urban landscapes and the pace of contemporary life. Inviting us to embrace the juxtaposition of past and present, fantasy and reality, this vase promises to become not just a vessel but a poetic narrative.
We are newly (forever) obsessed with the dynamic versatility of Alexandra Larrabure’s designs. However, it is her Ruched Adjustable Skirt and Top — a game-changing adjustable knitwear collection— that offers a revolutionary approach to fashion, that had us hooked. Whether you’re looking for a sleek, body-hugging look or prefer a more relaxed silhouette, these pieces grant you the freedom to style and wear them in your own way.
Step into the winter spotlight with the Peki Pump in Green Patent, a whimsical take on a classic wardrobe essential by Kalda. The brand’s signature circle cut-out adds a playful twist, giving a peek of (toe?) cleavage. A testament to quality craftsmanship, this piece is made in Portugal and embraces the charm of effortless style, sustainability, and a touch of allure.
