The best complement to your look is your personality and the best place to find style inspiration is the luxury womenswear jungle.
The world of women's wear could be a 'jungle', a lively environment full of colours and threats. When it comes to fashion the faux pas is around the corner: you could easily overdress to impress or downplay your style to follow the mass and the latest trend. If you do not want to lose your personality but still want to express your femininity with your personal touch, we have searched for three luxury brands that are able to express the rich spectrum of womanhood their way.
Celine: Femininity & Aesthetics
The eponymous maison launched in post-WWII Paris and it is still surprisingly fresh, and on the headlines making the news. The current creative director, Hedi Slimane, has impressed his nonchalant and rock signature to the brand. Dropping the accent from the brand logo was a foretelling sign of his strong character. If you are asking for a brand to infuse power into your day-to-night looks, Celine is probably your first answer. A glance at the ready-to-wear and ready-to-rock wardrobe by Celine on 24S is an instant source of inspiration: Celine's mastery builds a wardrobe where sportswear, casual and preppy style combine effortlessly. A hooded sweater mixed-up with a sleek trench and topped with a baseball cap is a street-style success; the evergreen blazer with gold buttons takes a 'baddie' twist with a cropped line and matching shorts in military khaki. No wonder, BLACKPINK's sensation Lisa is the perfect model for the Maison's spirit.
Bottega Veneta: Femininity & Aesthetics
Born as an artisanal leather bags and goods company in 1966, Bottega Veneta has been for decades the (well) hidden gem of luxury. Away from the spotlights but on the podium of craftsmanship with its unrivalled 'intrecciato'. If you are attracted by Bottega Veneta (without seeing the logo, because BV is not about logos), you have an exquisite eye for details and your fashion taste is refined but modern. You look for lasting quality, above all. The Italian maison saw its most-recent social boom with former creative director Daniel Lee, his love for instagrammable fashion and new in-house trends. Think about bright, shocking neon greens and rubber boots.
Young Matthieu Blazy took on the reins of the company direction surrounded by high expectations. The result is a Bottega Veneta that points back to its original craftsmanship and new silhouettes that need to be seen from a different angle to maximise the surprise. You have a subtle humour if Bottega Veneta reflects your sense of femininity and fashion. You would puzzle your circle with trousers looking like common denim but made of soft leather, an 'intrecciato' cassette bag as the cherry on the top a classic shirt and trousers passe-partout combo.
Burberry: Femininity & Aesthetics
Heritage is the synonym for Burberry. Founded in 1856 in Basingstoke – England, it has one big mission: protecting people from the unpredictable British environment, soon becoming a favourite of many intrepid explorers. Parts of the DNA of the maison are undoubtedly its essential, yet noble long trench coat and the earth-toned trademark check pattern. If you feel comfortable sporting evergreen and elevated staples, Burberry is the brand that represents you at your best. The new arrival of Daniel Lee, though, has shaken the fashion game and might revolutionise your classic style. Take the traditional check and paint it boldly. Now cover your clothing from your top to your bottom and your PJ too with it, and level up your beloved trench with faux fur.
These three European brands never stopped shaping femininity with innovative solutions and artistry, twists and turns that you would have not thought about, but you might be eager to try.
