TIM BLANKS, EDITOR AT LARGE
To Get: The most subversive album of all time in a “super deluxe” forty-fifth anniversary box set? That’s so perverse that all I can say is gimme!
To Give: Give as you would get—someone will be unwrapping this camo-is-classic antidote to wrist-y flash by Nixon.
AMBER KALLOR, BEAUTY EDITOR
To Get: I was bugging out over this Fendi Peekaboo tote. Opening your bag to reveal yellow crocodile monster eyes against a black python backdrop makes pulling out your wallet that much more exciting.
To Give: For my co-worker and fellow cat lover, photo editor Nicola Kast, I’ll be purchasing this Karl Lagerfeld Choupette key fob. I initially spotted it at Colette during the Spring collections and knew it had her name written all over it.
BRITTANY ADAMS, ASSOCIATE FASHION EDITOR
To Get: It’s been a few years since I took running seriously, and I’ve had my eye on a pair of Nike featherweight Flyknits since I witnessed dozens of models wearing them between castings before the Spring shows. Regardless of whether the kicks inspire me to relive my track star glory days, they’ll look fly with jeans.
To Give: Clearly, I’m feeling a Nike moment. After undergoing a major back surgery this summer, my go-getter of a mother is finally returning to fighting form, and I love the idea of her being able to track her fitness progress with Nike’s sleek rose gold-detailed FuelBand, which picks up on and encourages both low-intensity exercise like walking and full-on workouts.
ERINN HERMSEN, ASSISTANT MANAGING EDITOR
To Get: Black booties are a staple for my winter wardrobe, and I seem to “need” a new pair every season. This year, I’m eyeing these Saint Laurent beauties that will go with almost everything in my closet.
To Give: My favorite gifts to give come with a personalized touch, and I love these monogrammed wine glasses for my best girlfriends. They’re the perfect addition to our frequent wine nights.

NICOLE PHELPS, EXECUTIVE EDITOR
To Get: I’d love a one-month unlimited class package to Physique 57. With a 5-year-old at home, making time to work out is the biggest luxury there is.
To Give: I received a pair of Hatch‘s navy cashmere joggers as a gift about a year ago. They instantly became my at-home uniform; I wore them just about every night last winter. I know my mom and sister will be thrilled to receive pairs of their own. Hatch founder Ariane Goldman has opened a temporary shop at 25 Howard Street here in New York through Thanksgiving weekend, so it’ll be easy for me to go snap them up.
KATHARINE K. ZARRELLA, ASSOCIATE NEWS EDITOR
To Get: All I really want for Christmas is a ticket to London so I can go and explore the Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! exhibition at Somerset House. But seeing as it’s highly unlikely that I’ll be hopping the pond in the near future, I’d be equally pleased to receive this pair of Fendi booties. I wear my Fall ’10 Yves Saint Laurent mohawk pumps pretty aggressively, so it would be nice to have another footwear option that’s similarly coiffed.
To Give: I think everyone should own a vintage silk kimono. Every single person. They’re incredibly comfortable and wildly glamorous for lounging around the apartment. A few of my friends have been pining after my latest acquisition—a black, red, and gold embroidered kimono that was once owned by the 1934 Miss Japan—so I will be gifting them equally spectacular robes. My favorite kimono scavenging spots are obscure antique shops on the Upper West Side and Joe Sundlie’s vintage store in Chelsea. But this forties number from 1stdibs.com would do nicely.
RACHEL WALGROVE, SOCIAL MEDIA EDITOR
To Get: I’ve been eyeing LPD’s sportswear for a while. I love how it pairs team spirit with the cultlike following found in fashion. This Team Ghesquière tee is definitely on my list.
To Give: Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows that my family is obsessed with dachshunds—though I like to blame this mostly on my sister. These Jonathan Adler bookends would be the perfect complement to her impressive book collection.
ERICA BLUMENTHAL, CONTRIBUTING MARKET EDITOR
To Get: I don’t think you need a reason for why I want these python Gianvito Rossi pumps.
To Give: I plan to buy several copies of Morrissey’s Autobiography as soon as it hits U.S. stores on December 3. Most of my friends are dying to read it, so why not give them what they want?
If there’s one thing that the Internet and Karl Lagerfeld have in common, it’s an intense (bordering on unsettling) love of cats. The former has its “Lol” variety, the latter, his darling Choupette. Today, WWD reports that Lagerfeld has taken his obsession to the next level and will release a collection of Choupette-inspired kitty-themed accessories, ranging from handbags and beanies to whisker-embellished fingerless leather gloves. Should you want to get your paws on it, the capsule will be available this holiday season exclusively at Karl Lagerfeld stores.
Considering Karl Lagerfeld already stars in a cartoon video game, has his own Tokidoki statuette, and even approved a range of snow globes, it was only a matter of time until a set of Lagerfeld paper dolls surfaced. According to WWD, the Kaiser’s latest quirky collaboration is with Japanese artist Shin Tanaka, who created figurines en papier in the designer’s likeness The creepy-meets-cute toys will be on display at Lagerfeld’s Saint-Germain store in Paris through October 27. And because we know you’re wondering—yes. There’s a Choupette doll, too.
