Giving is great and all, but there is no denying that receiving is far better. There’s no harm in dropping hints to your loved ones about what you’d like to find under the Christmas tree. As such, for the team at Industrie Africa, there is always something in our store everyone secretly as their eye on. Here’s what we are crossing our fingers for this holiday season.

Although I generally prefer money and fragrances as gifts, I can never say no to clothes, or a voucher to buy said clothes (wink, wink). One of the worst things about me is that I barely think practically about my closet. A lot of what I buy (and therefore like to receive) has to be all about a razzle and dazzle. Right now, I’m particularly thinking about New Year’s Eve and what I’ll be wearing as I sip bubbles, thinking about the year that’s been while sharing my resolutions with loved ones. I’m thinking of something I can wear to an early evening get-together and still be able to dance into the New Year wearing. While this may be a maximalist approach to dressing, I'm fine with it because I really don’t mind looking like I’m going to a party, even on a typical day at the mall (it turns heads, okay?). As such, what’s on my wishlist is on the glam side, and there absolutely has to be some jewelry to go with it. If I shine into the New Year—in these items from Orange Culture and Ohiri—I believe it’s a good omen for what’s to come!

I’m a sucker for a great crop top, and Viviers’ Crochet Color-Block version is such a gorgeous 90s takes on the style. Pepper Row’s Saleema Pants Set offers a similarly cheeky flash of skin with its cutout elements and is such a glam piece for all the upcoming holiday parties. I also love IAMISIGO’s Patchwork Shirt because of its bold colors, oversize fit, and soft cotton form. Then there’s Yeba’s Oshu Mini Bag in black, which is the perfect addition to any of these garments—its evergreen design and classic color make for a timeless piece that I can wear forever. As a big fan of unique takes on the hoop earring, Pichulik’s Ouroboros Medium Earrings are the ideal accessory for me to make my signature.

I’m the maid of honor at my best friend’s wedding and, naturally, I’ve been obsessing over what to wear. You don’t want to upstage the bride, but you still want to look elegant and iconic. I’m a fan of long, languid silhouettes, especially when paired with flats so I went for the Viviers column draped dress, and the Orange Culture rope sandals. I’m a big fan of Ohiri’s unusual and unique accessories. They’re perfect for lifting any outfit and almost have a sense of ceremonial regality, which is perfect for a maid of honor look.

I’ve had these items on my wishlist for a while now, and I think it’s because they depict my style so perfectly. A leotard is a staple in my closet and this one from Andrea Iyamah flatters just about any body type. Paired with the Samurai Pants from Viviers, the base of my go-to outfit is complete. I love the versatility of a bodysuit and wide-leg pants because they allow me to dress my outfit up or down, depending on the occasion. To accessorize, Yeba’s Cream Mino Medium Bag is perfectly suited to bring out the white from the leotard and the gold from the understated Pichulik drop earrings. A final touch would be Maliko’s Aguzue Slip-Ons, which are an easy step-in-and-go item.

I am a minimalist who lives by a maximalist color palette. When choosing what to put on my wish list, I thought about how each item would fit into my existing wardrobe, I also considered wearability. I fell in love with the Fruché Prototype Jeans because they are a unique and sustainable spin on a wardrobe essential. I’ve always loved Lisa Folawiyo, and I knew the knit crop top would be comfortable to wear throughout the year. UNIFORM's collarless blazer and Okapi’s Yemaja handbag effortlessly tie the whole look together. The Daisy Earrings from Margaux Wong makes the perfect statement with their asymmetry and subtlety.
