Luxury Clothing on a Budget: Yes, It’s Possible

Luxury Clothing on a Budget: Yes, It’s Possible

As of 2019, the luxury apparel industry in the U.S. values at $18.75 Million and has massive growth room based on the market study conducted by Statista. The term “luxury clothing” tends to intimidate a lot of consumers as they automatically think of expensive designer brands that easily cost several thousands of dollars. In truth, luxury clothing is more of a feeling the item gives off with its textures and overall effect. So if you’re on a budget, is it possible to obtain pieces of luxury clothing? It Starts With Your Funds Money always factors into fashion even when you’re the one creating the pieces yourself. A good rule of thumb is to limit clothes budget to around 5% of after-tax income according to Pete Dunn, a financial planner. To see what fashion pieces are practical, it’s good to establish your funding, and in some cases you may want to make use of…

Why Female Watches Are Never A Priority in Watchmaking?

The 2019 SIHH is over and while Swiss watchmaking is recovering little by little from hard years, let’s highlight an interesting finding: Female watches are not always a priority in watchmaking. While men lines are generally the iconic pieces and the focus for most of the watch brands, it is unfortunate to realize that there is still efforts to be made in order to better please female watch aficionados. There are very few novelties dedicated to women that are true timepieces (and not necessary jewelry accessories only). From a historical point of view, women’s watches came first! When we look at watchmaking history it is said that the first women’s wristwatch was created by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1810. It was a special order for Caroline Murat, Queen of Naples. The younger sister of Napoleon, was a great watch aficionado. Between 1808 and 1814 she purchased from Breguet 34 clocks and watches,…
