Candy--the promotional film by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, starring the impossibly delicious Léa Sedoux alongside two dreamy moptops--is so good... how did I miss it before?
I love how the boys keep switching back and forth. All in all, it's the perfect fragrance campaign--who wouldn't want to be Candy? Way more than Miss Dior, or even Chloé--those girls barely get out of bed! On Candy's behalf I make my first gift suggestion, of course the namesake fragrance. I sampled it recently in my december vogue, and it's pretty sweet, you guys. You know... like candy! Expensive, tasteful, Italian candy. Plus the bottles are so perfectly giftable.
It does, however, inspire my second gift-idea, this time for the little ones:
This little red speedster from the Acorn Toy Shop in Brooklyn may be a repeat suggestion on my part, but it's so luxe and adorable, I can't help it. How could anyone resist? You'd have it for years--maybe even generations--to come, perhaps justifying the $115 pricetag, especially if you're going the 'one big gift' route, instead of buying a bunch of junk. If you're not, this little Bonnie Race Car is an equally gift-worthy and considerably more affordable (and portable) option for the young moto-enthusiast in your life.
