The mistletoe is hung and the lights are lit. ‘Tis the season of free-flowing Prosecco and fitting in more festive soirees than might seem physically possible. With December in full swing, our thoughts are naturally turning to what to wear, and just as we adore the annual ritual of decorating our trees with something sparkling, we’re favouring sartorial embellishment in the form of standout accessories, too. With that in mind, we’ve cherry-picked five essentials for the party season, designed to style just as well with December’s opulent velvets and silks, as with pared-back denim and relaxed suiting.
Red Twisted Aries Statement Belt
This season’s balloon-sleeved silhouettes are elevated with a cleverly-placed statement belt. Designed in a new colourway for this season, the Burgundy Twisted Aries Statement Belt is set with a signature double gold overlay rams head with onyx-tone crescents. In glossy black and red with luxurious twisted cord, it's a refreshed version of the style worn by Phoebe Waller-Bridge as she accepted a prestigious gong at The TCA Awards in Beverly Hills this year.
Pearl Gold Swan Statement Belt
Worn with metallic-toned silks, the Pearl Gold Swan Statement Belt effortlessly pulls a glamorous outfit together. The double swan head is a design taken from the Sonia Petroff archives and has been reworked by artisans in Arezzo, Italy for a more modern look that swaps easily between occasions—style it with raw edge denim and crocodile mules for lowkey festive drinks.
Green Scarab Statement belt
Sea creatures and insects are prominent motifs throughout the Sonia Petroff archives, and this statement belt features an amber-toned scarab beetle, a revered good luck charm in Ancient Egypt. Handcrafted with an emerald green twisted cord, it pairs beautifully with velvet and high waist trousers for a polished party look.
Swan Costume Statement Necklace
There’s something about Christmas and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake that go hand in hand, and this swan necklace aptly taking cues from the high drama of chunky costume jewellery. It epitomises the statement jewellery that Sonia Petroff loved to make, and is so much fun to wear. Curved to fit the natural shape of your neck, it’s has two side hinges that makes it easy to put on and take off.
Red Lobster Luxury Handbag
Our signature lobster design takes centre stage on this evening bag crafted from smooth Italian leather. Small but perfectly formed, it’s designed to carry just the essentials—phone, keys and a lipstick and mascara, so you can focus on more important things, like leaping towards that passing tray of canapes. Wear it cross body, layered over a plaid blazer and ruffle neck collar for a cool, seasonal look.
