As with all aspects of fashion, there are periodic shifts. What goes up must eventually go out of style, what goes around comes back around, and what’s adored one day feels oversaturated the next. Just look to a recent article in The Washington Post on the growing demand for “low-key, logo-free pieces” from luxury-loving shoppers. There’s a shift going on. After a whole lot of logo-laden love the past few seasons, now is the time to shed the labels and assert your own personality and taste.
I don’t know about you, but I’m all about quietly unique pieces that leave room for your own point of view to take over. Like this bag from The Row: it doesn’t announce its brand at first glance, and that’s what makes it so appealing. That, and the saddle-colored calfskin and woven-leather-topped silver ring that serves as a gorgeous top handle or just a great decoration when you use the shoulder-to-crossbody strap. A teeny-tiny, blink-and-you-miss-it engraved logo finishes off the satchel, and guess what? These elements are more than enough to make a major statement. The Row Classic 5 satchel at Barneys New York for $4,900.
Wear with: Play up a neutral nude palette with a cropped sweater that’s as sexy as it is discreet. Calvin Klein Collection’s ribbed knitted top modernizes the old concept of the sensual “sweater girl.” On NET-A-PORTER for $1,125.
