Lusty luxuries have a new place in 2020. While the world turned on its head, the fashion industry has reimagined its place within it. However, there are some things that remain constant – the evergreen investment pieces that can come from the world’s most desirable labels. And if you can’t double down on this life’s most decadent things in times of crisis, then when can you?
Chanel’s perfume apothecary chain bag, destined for its place against their equally decadent taffeta disco gown. Coach’s geometric pyramid statement leather clutch in Art Deco timelessness. Valentino’s new-era rock stud, quilted handbag paired with woven leather rose pumps. Givenchy’s slogan fold-over clutch monochromatically at home against an elegantly fluid drill suit. Gucci’s kitschy cookie tin swing bag. Ferragamo’s stacked heel, high-rise boot and Loewe’s fine art meets utility pouch bag.
These are the pieces that beckon a glorious holiday season escaped from the realities that surround. ‘Tis high time to bear an Hermès Collier Carre diamond encrusted necklace or a pair of 1 Moncler JW Anderson alpine boots. We’re burgeoning a brand new day, and we’re doing it dressed as cool as hell.
