Christmas is just around the corner, so why not get in the festive mood by doing a little window (aka. browser) shopping? No matter who you’re shopping for, you’ll find something from these five LUXE-approved shops featured in our city guides. The best part is, they all ship internationally – ‘tho you’d better act fast if you’d like Santa to deliver the goods in time. Ready, set, shop!
Meticulously constructed, covetable clutches and carry-alls by local bag lady Serra Türker. Her little boutique is stacked to its deco chandeliered rafters with brightly hued, boldly patterned sacs handcrafted from the highest quality leather, sea snakeskin and customisable suede lining. Totes adorable.
