The fabulous collection of 1930s gifts from Quintessentially Gifts

The fabulous collection of 1930s gifts from Quintessentially Gifts

Following Sunday’s première of Madonna’s directorial debut W.E. – a film tracing the infamous life and times of The Duke and Duchess of Windsor – Quintessentially Gifts are celebrating all things Thirties. Flash back to ‘martini hour’ cocktail parties with a vintage Hermès umbrella, a pair of Verdura diamond drop earrings, Louis Vuitton’s vintage shoe trunk, a David Linley cocktail shaker and a pair of bespoke Richard James crocodile loafers. Paint your nails in a reverse moon away from the cuticle and swathe yourself in Prince of Wales checks and Cartier panther brooches.

Dripping in jewels and Schiaparelli, The Duchess of Windsor added glamour and glitz to a time suffocated by depression and war. Despite the constitutional crisis and the international divorce scandal that will forever blacken her name, the infamous Mrs. Simpson remains a style icon in fashion circles, and is beautifully brought back to life in the film by superstar stylist Arianne Philllips - costume designer behind Walk The Line and Tom Ford’s A Single Man.

Quintessentially Gifts recently announced the launch of the company's new luxury e-commerce website - dedicated to hand-picking the world's finest and most exquisite designer pieces for customers looking for a truly unique offering - and have collated a selection of Thirties inspired looks that go hand in hand with the January release
