If you can’t treat yourself (or a loved one) to some extravagance at Christmas, when can you? Renowned stylist Clare Richardson created Reluxe for sustainably-minded shoppers who aspire to enjoy the very best of luxury fashion. ‘At Reluxe, we’re all about considered consumption’, Clare shares. ‘It’s about shopping quality, timeless pieces that are truly loved. For me, as my wardrobe has refined over the years, it's accessories that I invest in.’
With time running out to discover that ultimate luxury find this holiday season, be it a present for someone special or a well-earned gift to yourself, get inspired by Clare’s edit of exquisite preloved picks, from coveted handbags to statement jewellery.
A designer handbag is a luxury gift we’d all like to see under the Christmas tree. A house icon that lives up to its illustrious name, the Lady Dior has been the fashion in-crowd’s favourite for decades. Over the years we’ve seen many iterations, but the mini version is the most-seen accessory on and off the catwalk.
By its very nature, a timepiece is skilfully designed to be worn every day. I look for delicate pieces with charming details, as these won’t overpower my more understated everyday outfits or an ultra-feminine evening look. With its lightweight strap and diamond-set face, Piaget’s white gold wristwatch has all the hallmarks of the French watchmaker’s high-precision, beautiful craftsmanship.
With a pair of quality boots, you have instant wearability this season - not to mention every winter for years to come. Demna’s dramatic thigh-high boots are a power move with every step. Wear yours with a party dress for New Year’s Eve, and switch to a stylish slit maxi skirt when you’re back in the office.
