The Luxury List is a monthly column on all things luxury, exploring cult items from heritage brands, tapping the foremost experts in the fashion space, and doing deep dives into the investments pieces that are worth it.
I’m perpetually looking at the latest pieces to hit the fashion market and since I write The Luxury List column, that includes all things designer. Recently, I've been scouring the new drops at Net-a-Porter, Moda Operandi, and Nordstrom whose fall arrivals have me thinking about which investment pieces will land in my closet—or at least at the top of my wish list.
Right now, I have a number of luxe buys sitting on my shopping wish list. Headed into fall, I’m thinking about pieces like boots that will get lots of wear in the coming months and seasonless staples that will last for years and years ahead. From Frame's latest collaboration with the Ritz Paris to Bottega Veneta's cool take on the wedge boot to the Saint Laurent heels that keep selling out, these are all of the cool luxury buys that made the cut.
Designer tank tops are the key buy for fall— take this one from Marine Serre that's perfect.
