Forget the halls and bows of holly, we're most excited to be decking the counter-back with our latest delivery from calligrapher and letterpress artist, Imogen Owen. We've long loved this lady for her beautiful wispy hand and sweet, funny and sometimes sweary sentiments. Now she's gone and given us packs of notecards, prints and mugs with lots of gold lettering and we're smitten all over again. Pretty much all we want for Christmas please.

'Tis the season so every excuse to go all out in the glitz and glam stakes. Heavy sequins, intricate lace, showy frills, metallic leather; our Christmas collections from Custommade, Mads Norgaard and Stella Nova have hit the rails along with plenty of other party pieces. Standouts include a gold leather miniskirt and heavy sequin dress from Mads Norgaard, sparkly clutches from Beck Sonderagaard, sheer lace tops from Custommade and pointy silver snakeskin boots from Hudson.

Leather Goods & Good Stuff

Now here's a very pleasing thing. Opening a parcel permeated by the smell of really good leather to find these beautiful wallets and cardholders - handmade in the UK for one of our favourite menswear labels, and a Hambledon wholesale exclusive. Delivery of the week goes to our friends at Universal Works.

Made to order in small batches, each piece is designed with paper and pencil, fashioned from English veg tanned leather, hand cut with traditional knives and finally sewn together using vintage hand cranked machines for an authentic stitch quality. No electricity required; a proper little ‘cottage’ business run by a lady who’s been everything from a scrap vehicle dismantler to an award winning packaging designer. This we like a lot. Thanks Universal Works, you know us well.

It goes without saying that Christmas is a huge deal at The Hambledon and we embrace it heartedly. To the extent that several members of staff have multiple trees to accommodate varying decorative schemes. And they might need one more this year because our Christmas shop is open and it’s more fun, colourful and kitsch than ever before.

The tree is decked with a sparkly, neon-trimmed menagerie: winter hares in velvet collars; racoons carrying tres; birds wearing earmuffs; glittery swans, polar bears, bambis and parrots; dogs from Scotties to corgis, and for cat lovers out there (we hear you!), we're introducing your furry friends encased in beautiful glass globes. We’ve also thrown metallic rainbows, unicorns and pineapples into the mix for good measure.

Cards, wrap, advent calendars, crackers, garlands and balloons come courtesy of Meri Meri so the profusion of glitter, neon and fun continues; the foil balloon garland reading 'jolly' saying it all really. Let the festivities begin.
