Highlights of the S/S 2023 Fashion Weeks

Posted by TESSA HALL

As we find ourselves in October and the “core four” fashion weeks behind us, it’s time to recap on the most notable moments from the past month. In the order of their respective dates, we’re going through the highlights that made headlines, heads turn, and–probably most importantly for luxury brands–wallets to come out. All press is good press and good press drives business, which is why these showstopping moments mean so much for luxury brands competing for the fleeting attention of the media and consumers.

Celebrities, They're Just Like Us! Rewear Edition

Celebrities, They're Just Like Us! Rewear Edition

Posted by DIANA NGUYEN

Don’t you feel especially validated when you see celebrities doing something that would otherwise seem incredibly mainstream for us mere mortals? That’s how we feel about the rising trend of celebrities outfit repeating on the red carpet. The world of celebrity is progressively catching on to the rest of the world’s efforts towards sustainability and eco-friendly fashion. More and more we are seeing A-listers opting for sustainable choices when it comes to red carpet looks. Whether that be in the form of the old fashion faux pas “outfit repeating” or selecting pre-existing vintage looks–either way this is an overdue and welcomed evolution.

Sustainability Picking Up Steam in the Fashion Industry

Sustainability Picking Up Steam in the Fashion Industry

Posted by TESSA HALL

It’s no longer a surprise, or a trend, or a niche for corporate fashion brands to get on board with sustainability efforts. Many would argue it’s gone into hyperdrive, and honestly, we love to see it! Of course, these efforts come after years and years of experts shouting from the rooftops that we can no longer avoid climate change. It's already having it’s devastating and tangible impacts on many parts of the world. 

Although this is grim news, there are real positive strides being taken by the fashion industry, as they are the second most polluting industry in the world after oil.

Posted by DARINA GRANIK

Last month on Instagram we asked if our followers were interested in knowing the history of Hermès Kelly bag and over 60% pressed “YES”. So September turned out to be a perfect time to share some stories and to take you through histories of the most famous, beloved and cult handbags of our time. These handbags are conversation starters, and not only status symbols but cultural symbols as they carry a plethora of cultural references and stories behind them. They don't only belong to our wardrobes and private collections, but also films, museums and art exhibitions.

If you’re a loyal Chanel fan, then you’re already aware that the iconic brand has once again increased their prices of styles, like the Chanel 19 Small Bag, up by 10% as of July 1, 2021. This most recent price increase from Chanel marks it’s third increase in the span of 14 months; during a pandemic no less. Yes, Chanel’s increase was noteworthy among many fashion bibles and publications, but it is not unique from the current trend happening within luxury brands at present.

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Posted by TESSA HALL

Is investing in the cards for your future? Does that sound totally dry and really not something you’ve thought about in-depth? Once upon a time (when our parents were young adults and thinking about their first investments) you’d have to go into a bank, talk in great lengths to some generic-looking man and try and remember all the jargon words being tossed around like diversification, bonds, dividends, and volatility. Well, times have changed, in a big way! 

Love fashion? Great at scouting out a deal? Then maybe your type of smart investment lies in the resale luxury market.

One of the people who has an enduring influence on fashion, handbags in particular, even decades after her death is Princess Diana. Her sense of style has always inspired designers and artists; she used fashion as her armour and weapon and still today her style is appealing to a new generation of fashionistas who learn about Lady Di through their icons like Rihanna, Hailey Bieber, Off-White’s designer Virgil Abloh, Instagram and the latest season of a TV-show  “The Crown”.

THIS OR THAT: BATTLE OF THE ULTIMATE CROSSBODY BAGS

THIS OR THAT: BATTLE OF THE ULTIMATE CROSSBODY BAGS

Posted by DIANA NGUYEN

This month on the blog we tackle a “this or that” debate that I’m sure everyone has an opinion on! What is the ultimate crossbody bag? How do you define it? What makes it unique, but practical? We dive into the specifics of our top four based on reviews and research of these luxury finds.

More common than ever, designers are including a longer crossbody strap to many handbags in order to add more versatility and ways to wear (which we love, of course!). As a result, the distinct criterion for this list is that these bags can only be worn crossbody; otherwise the options on what to include would be limitless! Let’s get started!
