Washington-based style arbiter Aureta Thomollari has the most exquisite fashion sensibility in the city. Her widely read blog features photo after photo of herself (who else?) in couture to die for—the essence of vintage Chanel dreams, vibrant Valentino reds and heels, and jewels too beautiful for words. As president of DNA Luxury Consulting, part of Thomollari’s job is to dole out branding advice to high-end clients, be they hotels, retailers, or hospitality experts. Her travels take her around the globe, but she is always fully grounded in what is eternally chic, which is why she adores Hermès accessories.
“Exclusive, exquisite, everyday—the Hermès enamel bangles embody those three Es,” says Thomollari. “Certainly, any gift from this venerable luxury-goods house would leave your heart aflutter.” Designed in hundreds of different color combinations, the bangles we are particularly drawn to this holiday season are the reds. “Each hand-painted story is instantly an heirloom and immediately fashionable,” says Thomollari. Wear them alone or, as we gather Thomollari would, by the armload. Heavenly, Hermès.
