The Trendsetter's Wish List

December 2010

By Claire Brooks, President, ModelPeople Inc.

Season's Greetings! For our annual Holiday Issue of CultureBlog we asked our international network of City Correspondents what's topping their wish lists this year.

Despite a depressing economy and challenging job market facing these young people today, it seems that their desire for expensive, shiny things has not waned. Luxurious items, like Christian Louboutin python sneakers and an Isabel Marant gold brocade jacket, are wanted by our Hong Kong and Paris bloggers respectively. Indulgence is translated to comfort and craftsmanship in the case of our New York blogger who lusts after handmade moccasins by Mexican designer Beatrice Valenzuela. However, given bootstrap tightening, its unlikely that Santa will actually be able to deliver this year.
