collector's item

Some of fashion's elite recently scouted some modern day pieces for Style.com's 'Buy Now, Hurray Later", which they predict will be the "vintage of the future" i.e. highly coveted collectibles in the years to come. It was one of the most interesting things I'd read in a long while, and I wish my Mum had bloody read it (thanks Daddy for keeping all your Levi's)!. You can check out their picks here, but to give you a quick snapshot some of the choices were McQueen's last collection, Phoebe Philo's first for Celine, Viktor and Rolf's tulle dresses, the Olympia Le-Tan book clutches, and a black Chanel dress from Spring 2011.

I thought I might add to the list with a few picks of my own...


Valentino Fall 2009 Couture (I had to limit myself - I would pick every collection including this one and onwards if I could. Maybe I could just buy Chiuri and Piccioli?)


The Celine Box


Pamela Love Talon Cuff


Prada Lucite 'Chandelier' Sandals & Overlay from Spring 2010

What would you add to the list?

  1. I agree with the Celine bag in particular,you can't go wrong with a simple, classic bag. I think I would add the Miu Miu cat-print shoes - they're just so sweet and likeable that I think they're the kind of thing that transcends trends to be loved for all time.

  2. Ohhhh I have to agree with the Prada sandals! Those were ripped off and DIYed so many different ways that I'm sure they'll be quite the vintage piece one day. To that I think I would add the giuseppe monster heels (those were really something), anything from the now defunct Imitation of Christ, and maybe from the Miu Miu "bird" inspired clothing of last year.

  4. If I could pick anything in the entire world- it would be the Celine box. And anything else? The Celine box in another colour!

  7. This is such a good idea - and OH MY GREGORY PECK, chandelier shoes!!!! They're amazing!!!
    Also I adore Anna Dello Russo - I love that her husband asked her to choose between him and his clothes, her only response in the interview I read: "What did he think I would choose?? Silly man!" Heehee! xx

  19. discount prada handbags. Mention those two little words to any female and visions of luxury and envy will dance through their heads. cheap chanel handbags are at the top of every girl's wishlist and have been for decades. They know when they get their hands on the latest hermes birkin kelly handbags they will be the center of jealousy for all of their female counterparts. But what is it about a cheap louis vuitton handbags that creates such an elite status for women? Why is the new Balenciaga tote a determinant for a lady's social standing? The answer is both easy and complicated at the same time, omega speedmaster watches much like the women who carry them.
