While those of you who have read She Said Style will fully comprehend the purpose of ‘investment pieces‘, I am sure anyone who has yet to do so will have the same level of appreciation for Luxury Artisan.
This month, Luxury Artisan – a site which exclusively stocks six premium Italian brands – has launched in the UK. Brand names include Pineider, Giorgio Fedon, Cellerini, Madova, Chiarugi and Stefano Piazza; all brands of impeccable quality. With leather keyrings as low as £25 and a limited edition crocodile skin briefcase available for £8,750 – we can all indulge in a little quality.
My top five picks from Luxury Artisan (above) are detailed below!
Top to bottom and right to left:
Cashmere lined kid leather gloves – the contrast stitching and trim are gorgeous.
My dream briefcase (by Pineider) – definition of Italian elegance.
Crocodile-grained document bag – come on, I’m a girl who loves combining functionality with style!
48-Hour Leather Travel Bag – the lilac…the quality…drool-worthy.
Zip-around organizer – “CityChic“…does what it says on the tin.
“Sunday morning, rain is falling
Steal some covers, share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in”
– Maroon 5, ‘Sunday Morning‘
With so much work to do and so little time to do it, it is somewhat of a luxury to be holed up with your boyfriend for an entire day, wearing nothing but the comfiest items you own.
Hair tucked in a super thick sweater that is four times too big, light pink skater dress underneath, fuzzy boot-looking slippers (with fuzzy blue socks if my feet get too cold). Scarves (black cashmere pashmina and pink snood from Bank) optional.
Tailor4Less may not have a name that rolls off the tongue like Versace or Prada, but do not discard this Barcelona-cum-Shanghai company until you try them! These guys can make you a stunning red cashmere and wool coat (or, you know, your preferred style) tailored to your every need £129.
It is all made-to-measure and from home! During the buying process, you are given written and photographic instruction regarding the measurements needed, which can all be done via measuring tape. They even e-mailed me to confirm my waist to hip measurements were correct to eleminate mishaps (because in fact, I have Kardashian syndrome). They can offer such low prices because they have eliminated most fixed costs (e.g., retail stores, warehouses, …).
This godsend of a company – Tailor4less – sells worldwide and, therefore, can send worldwide with DHL Express in 2 weeks. This includes their suits, shirts, blazers, pants, skirts, accessories and menswear as well. I’m really thinking about buying a brown suit. I just really want a brown suit.
My Customized Coat: Times Square in (80 percent cashmere!) Passion with grey paisley print lining. If you’d like photos for proof of quality, contact me via Twitter!
