Over six years in the making, the latest addition to Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Hybris Mechanica series of ground-breaking, ultra-complicated timepieces is the first watch in the world with four faces of timekeeping indications.

Molton Brown Labdanum Dusk Eau de Parfum
The latest fragrance launch from the eponymous British brand, this rich, oriental-woody scent was made to modernise labdanum – an ambery resin native to the Middle East. Perfect for Eid, it comes married with verdant cypriol and cedarwood to add a touch of contemporary earthiness, while senior perfumer Nathalie Koobus cites oud as the signature note, which comes sustainably sourced from Dubai through a durable replanting process. If you’re feeling extra generous, there’s a bath & shower gel plus hair mist, too.

Christopher Kane chainmail dress
Eid is a time for celebration, and what better way to pay tribute than with this statement silver number by Christopher Kane? Crafted from fluid chainmail with a draped cowl neckline and a spray of white feathers edging the sleeves, it comes complete with an in-built beige crepe slip for extra comfort.

Fabergé Ruby Hilal collection
Representative of Ramadan, Eid and beyond, Fabergé’s new Colours of Love ‘Hilal’ collection – translating to crescent moon in Arabic – comprises a pendant, earrings and ring that come handcrafted from 8k rose gold with Fabergé’s iconic decorative fluting. Complemented by enchanting pavé set diamonds and a beautiful star featuring a Gemfields ruby which comes responsibly sourced from the Montepuez mine in Mozambique, these jewellery box additions are both stylish and sustainable.

If there’s one accessory sure to get her in the holiday spirit it’s these technometal nappa sandals from Aquazurra. Fun, playful and in tropical sunset hues, they would look great teamed with a LBD or jumpsuit if you’re looking for a second Eid gift on the side. You’re welcome.

Gucci Mehen candle
Nothing says you’re special like a Gucci Mehen candle. Named after a mythological Egyptian snake god in accordance with its reptilian emblems, this achingly-chic homeware addition diffuses a fresh, aquatic aroma with notes of Persian blue salt, seaweed, water moss and liquorice essence, and comes housed in a Richard Ginori porcelain vessel with an intricate floral motif, designed by the creative trio behind A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson. It doesn’t come much chicer than that.

Edie Parker bag
Nobody does party bags like Edie Parker, a firm favourite among the street style set thanks to its kitsch acrylic pieces of arm candy. Our pick of the season is this transparent Ice Box clutch that is the perfect size to house all her after-hours essentials and comes complete with inset vanity mirror perfect for touch ups when she’s out and about.

Dior Oud Ispahan
An oldie but a goodie, this quintessential oud-based scent never goes out of style. Sharp woody notes of saffron and cedar are mellowed with creamy additions of patchouli and sandalwood for a statement-making scent that continues to impress season after season.
INFO: Available at Maison Christian Dior counters nationwide
