Sydney accessories designer Poppy Lissiman reveals what’s on her Christmas wishlist this year

WORDS BY CAIT EMMA BURKE

And I want everything on it.

For a year that has moved at the pace of a diseased snail (apologies for that visceral imagery), Christmas time is approaching unbelievably quickly. Aside from gorging ourselves on all manner of delicious food and drink and packing more reading into a few days than you have the entire year, the festive season means purchasing presents, and that’s not always a walk in the park.

If like me, you’re stuck on ideas when it comes to gift-giving this year, seeing what other people – particularly interesting, stylish people – have on their personal Christmas wishlists can provide some much-needed inspiration.

This (and the fact that I’m very nosy) is why I’ve asked a selection of Australian creatives to share what they’d like to find under their trees this year. First up is Sydney-based accessories designer Poppy Lissiman. If you’ve come across Poppy’s Instagram before, you’ll know that she has excellent taste, and her list is brimming with colour and fun; it’s the perfect antidote to a rubbish year.

Fella’s bikinis are so well made and fit like a dream (you can even do custom sizing as well!). I’m currently lusting over this new coral set.

I’ve been collecting Pleats Please (particularly rare printed pieces from 20+ years ago) for several years now and they are a mainstay for so many of my outfits year-round. Pleats Please trousers are just so comfortable, great to throw on over swimwear in summer or wear travelling because they never crease and all you have to do is twist them up and tie them in a knot when you’re not using them.

This was such a fun collaboration for me; I really enjoyed reworking the Malibu waist bag that I first released a few years ago, and it’s one of my favourite styles. Loving the silver hardware and chain detailing on this style.

Moustache Big-Game Bold Chair

My fixation with owning this chair one day occupies an unhealthy amount of space in my brain. I have nowhere to put it so, for now, it continues to live rent-free in my head and on this wish list.

I love the mixture of chaos and harmony in Tom Polo’s paintings. His insane use of colour strikes a cord with me.

I’m obsessed with scents – I love the lasting heaviness of Byredo perfumes and I’m so keen to get my hands on this new scent they’ve just released. Tobacco is one of my favourite notes.

Malachite box

Vintage shopping is a favourite pastime of mine, I spend a lot of time (and $$!) trawling sites like Etsy, eBay, The Real Real and liquidation or deceased estate auctions. Recently I’ve been searching Etsy for the perfect malachite box for my jewellery.

To put inside my new malachite box! Miro Miro is one of my favourite Australian jewellery brands – Andrea Goh, who is the founder, recently launched a stunning collection inspired by antique Chinese heirlooms, and this is my favourite piece from the collection.
