19 Stunning Pieces I’m Eyeing That Are Peak Luxury

19 Stunning Pieces I'm Eyeing That Are Peak Luxury

Whilst the rest of the Western world is still wrapped up in Cyber Week deals and Black Friday markdowns, I seem to automatically switch a gear into luxury stealth mode. There’s something about seeing sales stock everywhere that makes me dream of big, shiny, aspirational purchases instead—the kind of luxury shopping picks that stay on your mind for months, last in your wardrobe for decades and hold their allure for just as long. 

It may seem like a peculiar time to consider premium purchases—Christmas shopping looms, and the big R word is ever-present. But it’s at pinch-point times like these that it’s more important than ever to evaluate the long-term value and use of anything you’re going to slap some hard-earned cash down for—whether it’s £35 or £3.5k (should you be so lucky). This is a moment when it doesn’t pay to buy endless amounts of trend-hitting items that provide only one season’s wear, or to impulse snag something cheaply just because you “don’t have anything to wear” on a Friday night. We’re all guilty of staring into our packed-out closets like they’re an empty abyss, but there’s always something you can restyle—I guarantee it. However, if your collection is missing a classic investment item or two, this is where my luxury shopping edit will come in. Nothing here is a fad; instead, you’ll find a list of time-honoured evergreen items such as a Max Mara camel coat or a Gucci monogram bag. Anything that does speak more to the season has the power to turn into a seasonless wonder or perhaps even a collector’s item in the future (see: Jean Paul Gaultier top). Keep scrolling to see this month’s most special items.

The one and only shearling jacket that really matters, Totême’s style leads the pack.

Loewe’s Puffy Goya bag has been steadily gaining popularity over the past three months, and we’re now at the point where it keeps selling out…

The kind of subtle party skirt that will last for many festive seasons to come. Throw on a big knit for a casual after-dark look.

The Row’s tailored trousers are something with legendary status. Here’s a new take on their Insta-famous Phoebe pants from a few seasons ago.

A little bit of every decade in one bag—this neat shoulder style will suit so many different personal styles.

Now, this set is how you do lounging like a celebrity.

Madeleine Thompson’s cashmere two-piece is pure indulgence, and I adore it.

The statement-collar dress is from one of my favourite collections of the season, Jil Sander.

Yes, they are the moment, but hear me out: A pair of sparkly mid-height heels you can actually party all night long in will never be a bad idea.

It’s the cardigan! Three years later and it looks just as good, if not better in this lovely deep shade of red.

As far as faux shearling options go, this one looks really plush. I like that it’s a more cropped proportion—great for petite women like me.

I tried on a Mrs. Ross dress in yellow back in the summer and haven’t stopped thinking about it ever since…

Like a classic only with a little extra drama and pizzazz thanks to that shawl collar.

Jean Paul Gaultier superfans have been collecting vintage mesh tops for years now, but a new drop of these spotty body-print styles is just as coveted.

A daily reminder to look after yourself.

They’re the leather jeans that all fashion girls swear by.

I rarely come across chunky cashmere knits that aren’t too long for my frame, so this cropped style is absolute winner.

I always see this on the wrists of chic fashion people, and then subsequently wonder when someone will buy one for me…

A classic shape in a not-so-classic tweed—these Chanel slingbacks are pure joy. Up next, the most popular designer handbags of all time.
