Outrageously Luxe Gifts for Your Most Fashionable Friend
Lean into their maximalist style sense this holiday season.
You’ve heard of quiet luxury (perhaps ad nauseam at this point!) but the rampant minimalist moment ignores those with equally chic leanings: the all-out maximalists. Here, we’ve sourced some of the wildest, most wonderful gifts to amuse even the most idiosyncratic of cool creatures.

Bulgari Serpenti Tubogas Watch
A timepiece and striking bangle in one, Bulgari’s Serpenti Tubogas Watch combines 18 karat rose gold and stainless steel in a coiled bracelet that slithers up your wrist. A conversation starter if we ever saw one.
