Quiet luxury. It is being seen everywhere…from runways to celebrities and everything in between. While trending at the moment, quiet luxury is a stylistic phenomenon that we have always followed here at Wardrobe Therapy. Assisting clients in building wardrobes that are thoughtful, timeless, and classic. Quiet luxury is defined as “clothing of the highest quality, but also clothing that has timelessness, is sophisticated and understated”, Thomaï Serdari, director of the fashion and luxury MBA program at NYU’s Stern School of Business, said.

To put it simply, quiet luxury is more than a trend, but rather an ideology and approach to living. It is the mindset that quality is more important than quantity. Defining quality pieces by their fabric and fit. It is a thoughtful curation of your wardrobe to last years (decades even). Quiet luxury pauses the noise of oversized logos and easily recognizable brands and elevates the beauty of refined basics that are effortless, polished, and luxurious looking.
