Xmas Wish List – Here’s all Bianca Saunders wants for Christmas this year
By Bailey Slater | Fashion | 22 December 2021

Now that Mariah Carey and Wham! are battling out on the airwaves, it’s safe to say Christmas is well and truly on its way: chugging into Platform 25 at full speed, dodging Covid variants like a slalom skier. What with all the chaos, you can be excused for being ill-prepared, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help out the inspirationally-barren shoppers among us by calling on some of our favourite tastemakers to share what they’re expecting in their stockings this Holiday season.

Next up is Bianca Saunders, the London-based RCA alumnus who has spent her post-graduate years redefining menswear by fusing the boxy, flowing silhouettes of years bygone with sleeker than sleek tailoring. Just like her emotive designs, Saunders’ list is practically dripping with nostalgic flair, evoking memory through image, scent and touch. It includes her favourite Maison Margiela candle, which has been test-driven in the studio through countless long nights, some comfy footwear courtesy of her entire family, and even yearns for the music world by way of some Pioneer paraphernalia – get into it!
