The holidays can become an overwhelming time when in search of the perfect gift for those closest to you or are looking to treat yourself. But that’s the challenge with holiday shopping, sifting through all that’s arrived on the scene in the last year only to find a few holy grails worthy of giving. This year, we want to assist in the quest of how to secure the perfect present for the ones you love, catering fashionable finds for tasteful dressers and sneaker-savvy people.
Keeping this in mind, HYPEBEAST rounded up the best seven pieces to buy for the fashion fiend in your life without emptying your bank account this season — even if that fashion fiend happens to be yourself. Our picks range from the most hype items of the year, like Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance and Jil Sander x Arc’teryx collaborations to other rare finds including Supreme x Missoni Knitwear, Paul Smith Black Leather Gloves and a refined classic like Versace’s new Greca Logo Chrono watch.
Few things are as classic as Versace’s Greca Logo watch line, one of the brand’s most successful collections, and the all-new La Greca print is a modern 3D maze that reinvents Versace’s iconic Greek Key pattern merged with the Versace logo. Delivered in a bold and luxurious array of tones, the namesake watch comes through ranging from black to green, blue, white-silver and cool grey while its dial features a date display at 4 o’clock and 3 counters that sets days, minutes and seconds. The watch becomes instantly recognizable through its strong branding at 12 o’clock by the Versace logo, a three-dimensional Medusa and metal indexes to reinforce the style of this timepiece. With sharp angles and clean geometric shapes, the timepiece exudes a certain power and self-confidence, the kind that makes having a watch like this worthwhile.
And it’s for both you and her, as the Greca adopts the new monogram print in the vibrant straps of a 38mm version for her as well as in a 43 mm chronograph for him. Both variants share the signature Greca Logo iconography, including the engraved Greek Key and six screws on the top ring. The color palettes of the exclusive monogram-printed straps feature a brilliant red paired with a white-silver dial, an elegant blue matching the dial and a modern, sporty khaki echoing the refined black chrono dial. With its quartz 3 hands and quartz chrono movements, you’ll never miss a beat.
