Deck the halls

Xmas wish list – London designer Daniel w. Fletcher picks his ultimate stocking fillers
By Undine Markus | Fashion | 20 December 2017

Christmas is barreling towards us like a derailed freight train and your headspace feels about as cool and collected as a turkey at 200 celsius. We feel you. But allow us to step in and save you some vital hours in the Christmas shopping rush (sharpen those elbows) via our Xmas wish lists lovingly curated by some of our favourite people.

Here, London-designer Daniel W. Fletcher lines up his Christmas wants. Creating something of an holistic Christmas experience, he’s thought about everything, from the perfect soundtrack to clothing, book and even paintings to surround himself with during the holiday season. And forget your Magaluf and Ibiza summer blowouts, Daniel is even hoping for a little jaunt to Antarctica to brain-freeze his mind after the intensity of men’s fashion week in January – we feel you Daniel, got room for a little one?


Art School Girlfriend – Measures EP
“This is the first release from Art School Girlfriend and she has smashed it. She started writing it when we used to live together so it is nice for me to see how it has developed and I would be very pleased to get the vinyl for Christmas. Excellent studio listening.”

Camper Brutus boots
“I actually already have a pair of these boots but they are so good. I can’t stop wearing them so am going to need another pair next year!”

Dries Van Noten, 1-100
“Dries was in London a couple of weeks ago signing copies at Liberty and sadly I missed him, but if anyone did make it and just happened to have picked up an extra you can put it under my tree.”

 John Booth Christmas tree decorations
“These hand-painted decorations from John Booth are a dream and the proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity that supports LGBTQ+ youth affected by homelessness.”

A trip to Antarctica
“I’m going to need a holiday by the end of January and where better than Antarctica? No signal, no wifi, penguins, grey stone peaks sketched with snow and humpback whales, anyone feeling extra generous?”

Mooney Throw by the other Daniel Fletcher
“I discovered Daniel Fletcher the artist for obvious reasons, and he has just designed this excellent throw which would be great for keeping warm on my trip to Antarctica…”

Gunther Forg – Hommage a Le Corbusier
“An optimistic Christmas gift but you never know, this piece by Forg is beautiful, twenty-three gouache works on paper, neatly aligned in four rows in two dozen colour pairings, I mean… anyone got a spare £200k?”

Prada crew-neck sweater
“A jumper of dreams to see me through the winter.”

Marks & Spencer pyjamas
“Everyone needs new pyjamas at Christmas and where better to get them than Marks and Spencer?”

Cide Trudon Louis XIV Bust Candle
“Christmas is not about being practical, therefore this slightly ridiculous wax bust of Louis XIV makes an excellent conclusion to this years Christmas list.”
