Cozy and Calm: MONTECRISTO’s January Wishlist

With holiday prep long done, winter hibernation kicks in, which means cozy and calm will prevail for the next month. Here are the essentials for a slow and soothing sail through January.

Paper Label Shirt and Pants

Vancouver-designed Paper Label moves from sleepwear to streetwear in unisex styles fit for both lounging and lunching. The Jack flannel shirt in Deep Cove Plaid from the new plaid flannel collection can be layered over a tee for out-on-the-town or paired with the Jayden pant for out-of-the-bedroom-and-onto-the-sofa.

Estée Lauder Year of the Rabbit Collection

Estée Lauder skincare products and lipstick

Arriving on shelves just in time for Lunar New Year is Estée Lauder’s Year of the Rabbit collection. The LNY Advanced Night Repair serum and eye cream, along with the Pure Color Envy lipstick and a cute rabbit pouch, all deliver good fortune—and good skin.

Duer Jeans

Vancouver-based Duer’s Winter Denim collection features the new Fireside Denim Girlfriend jean in a relaxed fit using the brand’s signature Fireside fabric, which weaves fleece with water-repelling denim, for warmth without the bulk. Bring your own hearth.

Caudalie Premier Cru Rich Cream

If Dry January is on the agenda, take your wine by skin. On January 13, French beauty brand Caudalie’s new Premier Cru Rich Cream arrives, chock-full of resveratrol (an antioxidant extracted from grapevine stalks at Caudalie’s winery in Bordeaux). The new cream delivers intense hydration to combat the intense cold of the winter months, and comes in recycled packaging that is both refillable and recyclable.

Charlie B Sweater

Montreal-based Charlie B brings three generations of garment-industry savoir faire to its clothing, which can be dressed up or down—and always look flattering. The pretty-in-pink Plus Basic V-neck sweater in Woodrose promises to put some pastel spring in your winter step.
