Certainly one could argue that talking about luxury may be far more exciting than talking about anything else. Sure, it's easy to hype a $14 000 handbag, but in reality, is that something that is really accessible for so many?
By far sometimes the Swedish do it better. Mens and womenswear brand Our Legacy is subdued and always effortlessly cool and this deconstructed blazer in Black Panama Wool is one to lust over.
A good blue jean is hard to find and Noah is surely one to never disappoint. Real downtown New Yorkers look no further than Noah and nor should we. Menswear brand, but sworn and loved by women everywhere (including prolific creative devotees such as Collier Schorr and Brianna Capozzi), Noah's pleated blue jean is always on high rotation in my wardrobe. Made in USA and a premium Japanese selvedge denim, it's just the right amount of volume and right amount stonewash and a piece of denim that I promise only gets better with age.
We're big fans of LA based intimates label Kye Intimates here at the RUSSH office with their beautifully crafted under garments and breathtaking imagery to match. Latest underwear obsession? Kye Intimates Essential String bikini for something simple but tastefully elevated.
Sometimes life should just be about summer heat and if you're not already familiar with Gimguas, then let me introduce you to a life living on island time. Long sleeves, a ruched bodice and a cut-out back, the Gimguas Isabel dress is sure to be one that will translate, nevermind the summer sweat.
Established in 2015 by model Mari Giudicelli, her shoes are purity in design and are always one to covet. Designed by Mari herself, her footwear moves on to its production, all through a 3rd generation family owned factory in São Paulo, created for the adventurous while still remaining elegantly subtle. On my list is none other than the Loren Ballerina that I feel could be my next perfect fit.
Australian owned and handcrafted, Sarah and Sebastian are always worthy of note. Feminine and finely tuned, Sarah and Sebastian's Large Net Diamond Ring shrouded in gold and 52 white diamond settings, the best thing is this ring is cast from ghost nets found in the Pacific Ocean.
Never had I cared about what I put in my hair til jewellery brand Sophie Buhai ventured into hair. Available in navy, black, chocolate and ivory, who knew I would consider an oversized bow my perfect companion?
Emme Parsons is no new name in the RUSSH office, and rightly so. Made in Italy and quickly becoming everyones favourite sandal, Emme Parsons Tobias in black with its stunning 50mm heel serves that perfect subtle lift needed in every shoe.
It may have been Katie Holmes' cashmere bra, but KHAITE have so much more to offer. Quickly becoming the new New York it-brand, from pristinely cut bodice tops to knee-high leather lace up boots, the latest addition to my must-haves is KHAITE's Shawna Dress in Ivory.
For swimwear that will get you noticed or for the perfectly body sculpting bodysuit - Gil Rodriguez is elegance made easy. A brand that is actively promoting and practicing slow fashion, when it comes to searching for that perfect one-piece or bikini, I would highly recommend looking no further than a black and white rendition by Gil.
