How One Creative Couple Does
Holiday Dressing

In partnership with our friends at Gucci

For artist-slash-designer Nikolai Haas and fashion stylist Djuna Bel, the holidays are anything but mellow: “It’s a really busy travel time for the both of us,” Bel explains. “Niki has Art Basel Miami, and I have travel jobs before the end of the year.” Where they both align, however, is in making sure to “carve out family time.”

In a way, their family time feels a lot more low-key than what you might expect from a hypercool couple, who seem as at ease playing house with their adorable baby, Fox, as they are go-go-going in their respective creative pursuits. “We love to host,” says Bel. “It’s another great excuse to have family and friends over to cook and make a fire. Niki is at the pizza oven, I’m making drinks or playing music, and Fox is running around entertaining,” she says, beaming. “It’s sweet.” Also sweet: the way the two complement and play off of each other, sharing similar tastes and a joie de vivre.

Couples that dress up together, stay together…that’s how it goes, right?

Two of a kind

“Niki has been into his ’70s-California-dad vibe lately, but he loves to dress up,” Bel explains. “It’s almost impossible to get him in a simple black suit; he always wants the loudest option. I guess I’m sort of the same!”

Check Mates

“Djuna has the best style on earth,” says Haas. “It’s a lot of why I fell in love with her. She’s powerful, elegant, and beautiful. Even her morning sweats are considered and stylish.”

HEAD OVER HEELS

“My whole identity is tied to Djuna,” Haas says. “We wear each other’s clothes, we think alike—it’s deeper than taste. She’s made me a better version of myself. She’s a true partner for me.”

“My style is always changing,” Bel admits. “In the summer, it’s a bit Jane Birkin; in the fall, it’s Kim Basinger in 9½ Weeks. It all depends on my mood.”

COLOR MY WORLD

“Djuna introduced me to a whole world I never knew I’d love so much, like high-waisted pants, button-up shirts, and tuxes,” explains Haas. “I love eccentric stuff with lots of color.”
