GETTING INTO THE NEW PHASE OF QUIET LUXURY
I think over the years we have clearly agreed that trends are fun and all – but they are not detrimental or important in the fashion sense. Personal style always comes as a way valuable component of every day living. However if you pay attention to only one trend this year, let it be the quiet luxury one. I usually prefer to stick to my personal style, but this trend is along the same wave length so I’m totally not mad about it.
We have witnessed a return to a more understated approach to luxury, or “quiet luxury,” as some are calling it, thanks to the minimalist designs of companies like The Row, Bottega Veneta, and Khaite. It is more refined than “nomcore” and less severe than minimalism. You will see a lot of items from these three brands in this post, as they are currently one of my favourites. Quiet luxury for me is no large or easily visible logos, great quality pieces, materials and silhouettes. It’s also the true luxury because it goes along the lines of craftsmanship and timelessness. It’s obvious that there has been a change in fashion, one that has real-world wearability rather than beginning and ending on the catwalk like some of the past trends.
As I know not everyone can afford these pieces, I also did a high-street version of the pieces, that I believe can sometimes look just as good as the luxury, expensive items. Often the materials or the savoir faire wont be the same but it looks very close to the real thing. This trend is possibly the best one yet, for finding more affordable dupes, especially if combined with great materials.
