When selecting a gift for your favorite elegant minimalist, take a page from CBK: Carolyn Bessette Kennedy: A Life in Fashion—written by Sunita Kumar Nair, with a preface by Edward Enninful OBE and a foreword by Gabriela Hearst—where less is the most. “Carolyn just had it,” Enninful writes. “From a fashion angle, she was a master of separates, a champion of American and European design—but worn with an ease of a true American icon. She made everything look easy and attainable.” Here, 27 items to aid in the quest for that je ne sais quoi: a classic handbag, a perfect button-down, a collar fit for JFK Jr.’s oft-photographed dog Friday, and more.
