Staff Christmas Wishlist : Jorge
What’s On Our Wishlist…
In-store customers rejoice, we’re back in action after nationwide restrictions forced the high-street to lie low for a second time this year and, just like you, we’re enjoying making up for last month’s lost time. Staff members are steadily reuniting, familiar faces are stepping back through the doors, Christmas lists are being whittled down and, collectively, we’re all basking in the latest deliveries to hit our racks.
You see our in-store team thrive most when surrounded by the company of customers and this is down to one common ground shared between both parties – a genuine affinity for the designer brands and products we carry. In fact, the outfit choices of our staff members often generate huge interest from customers in-store and therefore inform their shopping habits. That’s no surprise though since the Aphrodite team are well versed when it comes to personal style and designer know-how.
When it comes to our roster, few people are better informed than full-time Sales Assistant Jorge which is why he’s handpicked his favourite items to offer you a dose of seasonal gift inspiration. Keep on reading to find out what’s on Jorge’s #StaffChristmasWishlist.
Taion Button Down Vest
Roughly meaning ‘body temperature’ in Japanese, Taion doesn’t just inform this outerwear brand’s namesake but also its entire design philosophy. Running no risk of getting lost in translation, Taion’s garments are wholly thermal in every realm – they employ high-quality fabrics, baffle constructions and unrestrictive fits to deliver a contemporary capsule of layering must-haves.
Jorge opts for the Taion Button Down Vest in Black:
“I’m a big fan of Tokyo-hailing label Taion – they’re new to our roster for AW20 and provide some great layering pieces for this time of year.”
Stone Island Cargo Pants
Trends within the menswear circuit come, go and swing in roundabouts. From time to time certain looks and products will transcend and then never be seen or heard of again for decades. A prime example of this is the resurgence of cargo pants which men across the globe welcomed back into their lives circa 2018 and seemingly haven’t looked back since.
Reworked with a fresh, urban edge but with the same exact functionalities, the new-look cargo pant is tailor-made for the cityscape. Jorge opts for Stone Island Cargo Pants in Green.
“These trousers are exceptionally comfortable and ideal for the busy Christmas period serving on the shop floor!”
Nike Air Max 270 Vistascape Trainers
Last up on Jorge’s Staff Wishlist, but by no means least, is a fresh-faced arrival from Swoosh HQ. The Nike Air Max 270 Vistascape first landed on our radar earlier this year, bringing a small shot of delight to an otherwise turbulent year for all. Borrowing design codes from Nike’s ‘All Conditions Line’, this particular version embodies utilitarian accents and function-heavy detailing.
Jorge opts for the Nike Air Max 270 Vistascape Trainers in Light Orewood Brown.
“The great thing about this design is that it fuses three top Nike silhouettes into one shoe!”
