Armand Diradourian's luxurious cashmere clothing and accessories are distinguished by their brilliant colors and beading, embroidery, and other fine detailing. Founded in 1994, Diradourian's label employs Himalayan knitters and hand weavers to create its fine travel blankets, dresses, sweaters, scarves, pillows and hats, which are frequently rendered in sophisticated color combinations such wasabi green, orange, and a splash of absinthe yellow. Socially and environmentally aware fashionistas, take note: Armand Diradourian uses only fair-trade Nepalese yarns colored with natural vegetable dyes, so you can stay warm with a clear conscience.
Entertain with wit and style with these top picks from Seybert, a former fashion designer turned home-decor guru. Add some whimsy to the table with her embroidered linen cocktail napkins and colorful bubble wine glasses, and light some deliciously scented Joya candles to set the mood. Stock the powder room with Coyuchi’s organic-cotton towels (a spare set’s always good to have on hand). And if you’re the guest, thrill your hostess with a box of dark-chocolate truffles from Knipschildt. (Want more tips from Seybert on how to get your home holiday-ready? Click here.)
