Style for Christmas: Graceland

Graceland was the title of Paul Simon’s 7th solo album release in 1986. For me, the name Graceland perfectly describes our Mums – the world they create for us, and the lessons they teach us. Here are our gift ideas for a unique kind of Mum who craves Style for Christmas.

Click on the images for a closer look. At the end of each edit in the Style for Christmas series you’ll find a list of brands so you can shop online (and treat yourself in the process).

This editorial was created by Melissa Ogier at The Garb Wire. The Garb Wire’s themed ‘gift guide’ reflects who we are, crazed style obsessives who swing well to the left of the ordinary. For inspiration this year I selected album titles from Rolling Stone Magazine’s Top 500 Albums of all Time list published in 2012.
