“It is very distinctive, it is very stylish – it is very Louis Vuitton… wherever you go in the world you will see people carrying the distinctive Louis Vuitton brand… whether it is a little bag or a huge suitcase. It talks of distinction and taste” – Cherie Blair at the London Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison Opening.
Thank you for visiting my website about buying luxury goods. This is an excellent guide to choosing luxury goods that last the test of time. In this modern age of designer everything – luxury makers are releasing goods in areas that they never dealt in before.
What brands are true luxury?
What brands are simply cashing in on past prestige and glories?
Luxury to Last looks at the best items for modern living.
I am a firm believer in buying quality items to last years instead of buying cheaper/lesser quality items that only last one or two sessions.
By smart buying you can enjoy the best quality of items that can even go up in value over time.
I am also a firm believer in buying goods on the secondary (used) market. This involves either developing “knowledge” about the topic or utilizing the many second hand dealers and shops that specialize in vintage luxury goods.
If you buy items on the secondary market, and you can be assured the item is genuine; there is no reason why you should ever lose money!
Genuine luxury goods are design icons which retain value and can provide the astute collector with the occasional financial windfall.
The secret is knowing what not to buy which is just as important as knowing what to buy. Hopefully this guide can act as a helpful addition to your already present passion for luxury goods.
