THE FACE: XMAS GIFT GUIDE 101

That’s right, we’re back here again. Christmas. Mere weeks away. Whether you love it or loathe it (hey, no judgement here), it’s probably best not to leave gift buying ’til Christmas sodding Eve, traipsing down the high street in a hot sweat. So over the next few weeks, THE FACE will be here to lend a hand with fool-proof Christmas gift guides for music heads, fashion aficionados, art nerds, bookworms and more.

They say gifting clothes is never a safe bet. “They” have never been led by us: our guide will have you dressing your loved ones in the best that this year’s big (and emerging!) brands have to offer. Super soft knitwear, heavenly Heaven by Marc Jacobs, wallets to hold your coins and Bottega Veneta to spend your coins, don’t fret – there’ll be no huffs nor puffs come Christmas morning. Just figure out the sizing beforehand, alright?

Renew! Restore! Recondition! These are the founding pillars of Diesel’s new Second Hand initiative, which restores some of the brand’s highest quality, vintage Italian denim for your wearing pleasure. After all, it’s the fashion industry’s worst kept secret that the production of jeans is one of its biggest polluters. As denim heavyweights, Diesel have decided to fuel a sustainable resale revolution from the inside: more style, less carbon emissions, everyone’s happy. So far, 900 pairs of jeans have been given a second life, made recognisable by a red logo slapped across the back of each pair. Look at that, good as new! As the age old saying goes, there’s nothing cooler than wearing something more than once. Get your mitts on a pair of Diesel Second Hand jeans at selected stores in Italy or by clicking here.

OK, so the sun has stopped shining and there's an icy bite in the air, but it’s not all doom and gloom! Palace has returned with a larger-than-life collab, this time with Pez – no, not those old school candy dispensers from when you were a kid, but PEZ, aka Steve Morris, the man behind some of the Nineties’ most recognisable acid house flyers. From trippy shirts emblazoned with Helter Skelter and Raindance party artwork to proper retro bomber jackets, these bits will keep you warm for a long, cold winter of partying. Don't forget about OG Palace winter essentials, either: cosy fleece trackies, chunky knits and loads of denim. Get your hands on all of it from 11am BST on Friday 22nd October.

Feet at the ready. UKG mixtape, play. Palace has partnered with Evisu for the second time on a collection that nods to the Japanese denim brand’s almighty dent in the London club scene in the late ’90s and early 2000s. There’s no doubt about it, Evisu was a mainstay at garage, jungle and drum and bass raves. Immortalised via a mystical short film – featuring Palace skaters Benny Fairfax and Rory Milanes and British musicians Pa Salieu, Joy Orbison and his uncle-slash-legendary DJ Ray Keith – the collection is full of bits to look sweet in: matchy-matchy shirts and jeans, reversible souvenir jackets, crewnecks, joggers and, of course, denim. Lots of it. The best kind. Do you really like it? Of course you do.

As Elvis Presley sang, home is where the heart is. He wasn't wrong. In this case, the comfort of a cosy interior was Opening Ceremony's overarching inspiration for a snug autumnal collection.

Featuring abstract flower tees, everyday sweatshirts splashed with graphic lightbulbs and chairs with devilish faces (illustrated by New York designer Bráulio Amado) – AW21 embodies our safe haven as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.

Exploring the idea of "comfortable tailoring" as we venture from sofa to supermarket to swish cocktail bar, Opening Ceremony's relaxed silhouettes are the day to night remedy we've been searching for.

Georgia Kemball’s delicate jewellery designs read like a fairytale storybook: myths, magic, mysticism and teeny-tiny characters existing in a world of otherworldly power and protection. Naughty goblins resting from your neck, or miniature pixies from your ears, the London-based designer’s ethereal approach has found a legion of spellbound fans and, now, her latest collection is available on END – and it’s yours for the taking. So, step inside the rabbit hole and follow the path less trodden…

Goodbye, British summer – we hardly knew ye. But never mind, Apron Records are giving us one last knees-up with their latest capsule collection. Since Steven Julien established the label back in 2012, he has offered only the best in music of Black origin: from jazz and electronic to hip-hop and all the way back again. Made in the US and finished in London, Apron Records’ latest drop includes quality embroidered baseball caps and heavy cotton tees emblazoned with various iterations of the record label’s logo. So treat yourself! Summer’s pretty much over, but there’s still a few festivals knocking about, at least.
