Vivianne Leung – Senior Marketing Executive, JewelStreet

What is your top piece of Winter style advice?

Chain-link necklaces are trending hard this season, I will wear them with my favourite coat with jeans or layer over my turtleneck. Gold hoops are another must-have if you haven’t got a pair! Simple yet elegant, and they add some warmth to your look this winter. Whether you prefer minimalist or statement hoops, the best thing is they never fail to earn me compliments!

A cosy cottage holiday! As I lived in Australia for 10 years in the past, I think it’s time for me to take a break from the Shrimp on the Barbie, and instead enjoy the log fires, snug sofas, toasty beds and starry night…  🙂

What is your top piece of winter style advice?

At Lucy Quartermaine HQ, we are in love with a faux fur coat! It is a must to keep warm for us. Teaming this look with a statement pair of earrings or necklace is just perfect for the festive season. At the moment we are loving our waterfall necklace, it looks so beautiful with a dark faux fur jacket.

What’s your favourite Christmas movie?

We just couldn’t decide between two…. The Christmas classic, Home Alone and the festive fun, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!

Zeemou Zeng – Founder & Creative Director, Zeemou Zeng Fine Jewellery

What is your top piece of winter style advice?

Layering is always on-trend in the winter, I personally prefer simple and clean silhouette. Of course, add a piece of jewellery is always make you even more special, it makes statement for you. 

What are the top gifts on offer from Zeemou Zeng Fine Jewellery?

I would highly recommend the pieces from our new collection-The EYE. The EYE pieces are enchantingly joyful as well as beautiful. Each piece is designed with an eye in which the central stone turns from front to back and the colour magically changes, due to a different gemstone being set on each side. Just like our first collection MELODY, the EYE collection captures an independent spirit and chic style which will appeal to both men and women, very unique gift for both him or her.

What is your favourite place for Christmas shopping?

Mayfair & St. James’s, Selfridges, Harrods, Liberty, Regent street, Covent Garden, John Lewis, etc., really depends on what I need to buy. 

All I want for Christmas is…

Fun and relaxing time with friends or family.

The team at Yoko London

Any must haves for the festive season?

Our Trend Collection is definitely a must-have this season. The versatile pieces can see you through the day, and straight into a festive event in the evening, with easy to wear, fashion forward designs featuring Freshwater pearls and diamonds.

What is your top piece of winter style advice?

Layering is an important trend for us this season. In the winter, layering long strands of pearls – which can be in different colours and sizes – on top of a winter sweater is an extremely versatile and elegant look.
