Create unforgettable moments under the Christmas tree and give a special meaning to your gifts.
Those who know me are aware that when pampering myself, I choose items that have hidden meanings to tell a story beyond the naked eye. Irrespective of monetary value, even an expensive item remains worthless to me without the oomph.
It all boils down to the atmosphere the item creates: the dazzling splendour of colours, the perfectly organised simplicity or detail of the design.
Have you ever wondered about the history of a pre-owned item? Would you consider loving it going forward? Would it entertain you to imagine the glorious events it has witnessed? Or would you be thrilled by a dark and mysterious past?
I prefer to imagine the joyful and inspiring times it had been present at and would be thrilled to experience good times in the forthcoming years.
Owning signature items is a way to create a unique identity for yourself. They don't have to be new, nor do they have to be plenty.
The market for pre-owned luxury products has surged over the last three years. According to a survey conducted in 2021, 41 percent of global consumers bought pre-owned luxury products. This trend is currently driven by younger, more environmentally conscious shoppers looking for affordable high-end goods. However, it is also a good option for anyone looking for signature items that are hard to find or are no longer available on the primary market.
A Prada bag is unlikely to go out of fashion. My absolute favorite for the Christmas season is this lovely Prada shoulder bag. This beautiful bicolor model is in very good condition, as described by the expert here. It is made of red and white leather, hardware in silver metal, and one chain strap in silver metal, allowing the bag to be worn on the shoulder or across the body. With the signature: "Prada Made in Italy".
The colour, the style, and the delicacy of this item create an atmosphere way beyond itself: it flies me to my beloved Italy, the land of laughter and carefree enjoyment of all senses.
"You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation."
You can enjoy tradition, history, and class by investing in personal assets that do not necessarily require to be hidden in a vault 24/7/365.
The classic elegance of a Patek Philippe watch demonstrates subtle sophistication and the appreciation of timeless style.
The Platinium Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph wristwatch from the Complications collection always makes my heart throb.
The best gift for any occasion is the mutual undivided presence and the positive energy of loved ones.
