Markels proposes One Wing Studio jack- ets, separates, dresses, and wraps if you want to be the envy of the occasion.“We have fea- tured the Topanga Canyon, California, design- er since the day we opened, and it continues to attract and delight our customers. Because silk accepts dye in a variation, each garment is slightly different with delicate complexity. The clothes flow and fit like a dream.” Los Angeles-based Vocal speaks volumes for its individual personality. It is created for women hoping for a modern edge with a vintage twist. Clothes are elaborate yet tra- ditionally antique. A crimson dress embel- lished with rhinestone, crystal, and chains of gold and silver cries out to be worn for special holiday events. For an exceptional gift or the ideal touch to complete an outfit, consider Very Chic Chala bags. These playful animal-themed totes are alive in birds, foxes, dogs, hedge- hogs, monkeys, seahorses, and cats. There are flower appliques, as well. Some bags include a matching change purse, and most styles can be adapted as a clutch. VERITABLY VINTAGE As technology assumes more prominence in our lives and people anticipate driverless cars and a mere icon click for almost any product or service, they long for memorable moments from the past. Diving Cat derives great pleasure in showcasing a wide assort- ment of vintage keepsakes. Cody Foster & Co. takes us back to days of creating little towns and villages under our trees. Snow-laden houses, tall and short, enrich any setting from table to mantel. “He specializes in antique reproductions,” re- marks Markels. “We adore his bicycles and trucks.” Vintage watches are fascinating, too. Diving Cat’s Full Moon collection from Watchcraft is a one-of-a-kind limited edition for men. The company’s Porthole collection is highlighted by a round case fashioned to resemble a ship’s window. Another style features a hand-painted dial with Roman numerals in a small distressed and oxidized brass case. Bracelets, pendent necklaces, and rings are also important gifts for men. For decades Barbie dolls have topped wish lists. Diving Cat has its own spin on dolls adults will applaud. “I commissioned an artist to hand paint Barbie faces and fabricate outfits to match,” says Markels. “They are sophisticated conversation pieces.”
