Australia’s most stylish people are hoping for a lavish list of gifts this Christmas, from designer disco balls to gold jewellery inspired by a 12th century Italian poet.
Revealing their most coveted buys in a feature for Domain, the ‘who’s who’ of the nation’s creative industries wrote a wish list of designer goods few of us even knew existed.
High-end homewares like organic ceramics and custom-made armchairs were among the top preferences, alongside luxury garden furniture and antique sculptures imported from Europe with price tags of more than $2,215.
A fusion of art and fashion is top of the list for celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson, who has her eye on an $850 photo print of a Marni handbag by homegrown artist Dina Broadhurst.

Occasionwear designer Aurelio Costarella is eager to get his hands on a $45 coffee mug from upscale pottery artist Chrissie Hogan, who makes each of her one-of-a-kind designs by hand.
A $129 black-and-white vase from French label Maison Balzac is the perfect gift for interior stylist Kerrie-Ann Jones, who told Domain she loves the brand’s ‘playful yet sophisticated’ vibe.
Vintage is best for Los Angeles-based, Australian-born textile designer Liz Casella, who hopes to add to her collection of Italian antiques this Christmas with a new piece from Bitossi Ceramics.
A 1960s oriental bust from Bitossi costs $2,215, but Ms Casella would be just as happy with a piece of jewellery from London label Alighieri, a luxury brand named for the famous 12th century Italian poet Dante Alighieri.
