WHAT: Dior Oblique Belt Pouch
PRICE: 470 $
WHY: When we talk about Dior, we can’t help but think: monogram!
Conceived in 1967 by Marc Bohan, creative director from 1961 until 1989, the Dior Oblique pattern makes its first appearance on one of the bags of the Haute Couture spring/summer 1969 collection, revealing itself to the audience. However, it was only in the early 2000s that, thanks to the genius of John Galliano, it took over the runaways, triggering a real trend towards the Maison’s logo which is still going strong today (let’s think of the unforgettable pink monogram).
Reinterpreted last season by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the historical pattern was dug up and is now featuring in the new collections.
In 2020, Dior chose to focus on blue as the predominant color, with a few Bordeaux variations: the logo covers bags, pouches, gloves, and outfits, as far as shoes, keeping that streetwear vibe which has been associated with this print since the 2000s.
Anything monogram is a good investment, but, if you’re looking for an accessory that’s suitable for any occasion, this versatile, but classy belt pouch is exactly what you need.
WHAT: The Mid-length Chelsea Heritage Trench Coat
PRICE: 1.990,00 $
WHY: If we were to pick one single essential classic item from our closet (help!) it would no doubt be Burberry’s trench coat.
Timeless and legendary, this cult was born in the late 1800s and it was the first water-repellent clothing item ever, standing out in grey London town thanks to its cream to beige shade that would have later become the unisex color of each season, and thanks to the Scottish check, which interrupts the monochrome, leaving no doubts about the name of the brand.
Over the years, the clothing item, emblem of British fashion, has undergone several transformations by the different creative directors who’ve succeeded one another at the helm of the Maison, but it never stopped being a must-have among the outwear items.
As of today, there are many different designs available in various colors, all there to be enjoyed.
However, we feel there’s nothing better than the classic tight mid-length trench coat, with tight shoulders and waist and a Vintage check lining, the iconic symbol of the Maison.
WHAT: La Robe Valerie Pencil Dress
PRICE: 890 $
WHY: With his extreme cuts, fluent drapes, and flirtatious see-through effects, Simon Porte Jacquemus worked his way into the fashion world and has now become one of the most popular designers of his generation.
Alongside the Chiquito bags, the knitted bralettes, and the La Robe Manosque dresses, to possess a Jacquemus item has become a synonym for ‘modern’ and ‘avant-garde.’ This dress from the fall/winter 2020-21 collection, worn by Bella Hadid during the Paris Fashion Week, is the perfect mixture of elegance and sensuality: the overlap of natural materials in tone-on-tone creamy colors, the use of lightly frayed linen as a mono-material and redrafted to become winter fabric, the dry silhouette that highlights the body shape and the plunging neckline make it a cult clothing item, perfect to represent the essence of the minimal and genuine style of the brand.
P.s. Available for purchase on Jacquemus official website, also in the blue variant.
WHAT: Re-Edition 2000 Nylon Mini Bag
PRICE: 775 $
WHY: One word: nylon!
After almost 40 years since the birth of the first nylon item of the Maison, the Prada backpack, which in 1984 began the process that made Prada’s DNA unmistakable, in the long run, the nylon mini bag has become a must-have item which conquered the world of fashion with its exemplary nature.
Today, the Maison re-evokes, through a modern re-edition in the colors that are in vogue at the moment, the famous nylon shoulder bags of the early 2000s: available in 12 different shades (the classic black and camel, and some bolder colors like mint, red or periwinkle blue), these bags are the perfect example of an immortal item, revisited in step with the times.
The Re-Edition 2000 Nylon Mini Bag is the most popular It Bag at the moment, and it cannot be missing from your wardrobe!
WHAT: Cardigan Chanel Métiers d’Art 2019/20
PRICE: 2500 $
WHY: All right, the price is going up a little bit, but how could we let one of Maison Chanel’s fetish items slip away?
Yes, we’re talking about him: Mr. Cardigan.
It was Coco Chanel who, in 1925, determined the success of this cult item: using the typical fabrics of men’s clothing, she created some pieces with wide and less constricting silhouettes which gave women a chance to wear comfortable outfits, second-guessing gender identity.
Keywords? Soft and cozy: this cashmere short-sleeved cardigan, in fall colors like orange and burgundy, is the perfect item for the coming of the new season and of the first cold days; moreover, anything Chanel is a real investment!
WHAT: Begum Glass Transparent
BRAND: Amina Muaddi
PRICE: 960 $
WHY: What if we told you they’re the coolest shoes of the moment?
Just try and open Instagram and you’ll have your feed literally flooded with pictures of the Amina Muaddi shoes: influencers like Leonie Hanne and Emili Sindev, but also stars like Rihanna (have you heard about the collab between Riri and Amina for Fenty’s Release 7-20?) Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Kim Kardashian are all going crazy for these shoes which, with their jewelry details, feathers, bold colors, and eclectic shapes, have conquered a spot on the podium of the new cult objects of the last few years, also thanks to the media power of the designer’s social campaigns.
The best-loved? Obviously, the transparent leather PVC slingback Begum Glass with crystal-embellished ornaments on top.
