Introducing Quiet Luxury
Quiet Luxury is about understated elegance, sophistication, and a focus on the finer details. Putting a spotlight on high-quality, minimalist pieces that can transcend the test of time.
Some people might have just heard about Quiet Luxury recently, however, it is actually a style that has been around for years. It is a concept that has been popularised as a 'trend' this year due to a lot of factors. From TV shows like 'Succession' to celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow that portray the spirit of 'old money' or 'stealth wealth' with their logoless, muted, investment luxury pieces. It may also be affected by how more people have started to promote conscious consumption, such as 'buy less, buy better'. People are prone to buying versatile pieces with higher quality material that they can invest in, to be worn for a longer time.
What are the characteristics of Quiet Luxury?
On the surface, there are some characteristics that you can pay attention to that could make it easier to differentiate. It is important to focus on pieces that are timeless and classic, with the potential to be paired with a lot of different clothing. They usually come in more neutral colors with subtle textures or patterns, and they tend to be more focused on the quality of the craftsmanship. However, beneath that, Quiet Luxury goes way deeper, it is a lifestyle that centers on functional and investment dressing.
How does tailoring play a part in Quiet Luxury?
Tailoring ensures that one's clothing fits the wearer impeccably. A well-fitted garment can make a person feel confident and comfortable. Quiet Luxury often eschews oversized or ill-fitting clothing in favor of tailored pieces that flatter the wearer's body. It also allows for customization, ensuring that your clothing is tailored to your specific preferences, for a unique and personalized wardrobe.
Tailored pieces are often designed to withstand trends and seasons. You would be able to select materials with care, ensuring that they not only look and feel luxurious but also stand the test of time.
The key point of achieving a Quiet Luxury style is not only with the aesthetics; but also in functionality and investment dressing. Tailoring plays a crucial role in quiet luxury by emphasizing the principles of quality, craftsmanship, customization, and timelessness. It allows individuals to express their personal style while appreciating the finer details of their clothing.
In the world of Quiet Luxury, it's not about showing off wealth but about appreciating the artistry and thought that goes into creating each garment. To create pieces that you can wear all seasons, whilst still making you look and feel good.
