Studio Five Showroom's Snazzy Gifts

5 treasures for indie design devotees!

Snag an appointment at PR maven Jessica deGuardiola’s spankin’ new (and so gorgeous) showroom for enviables from local and international indie designers. Your free-spirited giftees will thank you. 

George Guest Hillside Pack, $350
Upgrade your tenderoni’s dilapidated North Face with a posh (yet rugged) leather and canvas carryall from Boston buds Alex Schultz and George Keeler — the patented rolltop closure will sell him on high style.

Vlady Rabbit Necklace, $148
Massachusetts native Christan Summers left for France three years ago to run online jewelry shop ICU - in Paris. She’s returned (temporarily) to unveil Charlotte Martyr’s affordable street-style accessories. The talisman-like gold pendant is perfect for your Alice in Wonderland-obsessed BFF.

C.Z. Falconer Carla Cashmere Poncho, $425
Grams taught you the difference between Dior and Chanel — swathe her in a luxurious, whisper-thin hooded cloak from L.A. designer Katherine Zabloudil. For the head-to-toe hedonist, throw in kitten-soft Athena leggings ($255).

Plank Designs Pony Hair-and-Leather Small Clutch, $95
Tired of holding your roomie’s hobo every time she hits the dance floor? Streamline her look with a colorful bag that can be worn flat across the body or double-wrapped around the waist (it works, swear on our Minkoffs).

Fabracadabra Uzbekistan Print Blanket, $110-$175
Your hapless cousin Dirk chose a game console motif for his first condo. Printed throws from textile maven Donna Halloran add gender-neutral panache to the most arid of apartment palettes.
