Now that most of us have turned our watches into personal assistants, reminding us to breath and recording every calories of every meal, it seems even more unlikely that we will be ready to substitute our reliable smart watch for a gloriously decadent rainbow encrusted Bing Bang watch by Hublot. At a cool $82,000, enough to feed a generous part of Africa on a single day, the Hublot boasts spectacular horological and jewelry-making workmanship, fusing the worlds of fashion, jewelry and watch-making seamlessly.
This beautiful cuff is not only decadent in spending power but perhaps more importantly in size and stature. This is a serious piece of jewelry and will take over anything else you choose to put on. It feels like forever since we wanted to wear something with so much size and character, instead opting for delicate items that are perfectly layered. Even when we do choose to wear chunkier pieces the effort appears orchestrated, again matched to perfection. This cuff is unabashed in its authenticity and individuality, almost oblivious to everything else around it, reveling in its own beauty and charm.
You could choose to use this vanity case as a handbag, which may allow you to digest the $4,600 price tag. The true decadence would be in using it as a vanity case, a place to house your favorite makeup and travel essentials. There was a time when these items were indeed paraded around airports and hotel lobbies in the form of colorful Samsonite totes. Those days are truly over, because honestly the last thing we are going to do now is remind everyone of how much stuff we need to look great. Which is exactly what the no-makeup makeup look is all about, in all of its 14 items!
To have a Kelly Hermes or Birkin is truly special, not just for the beauty but also the exclusivity and scarcity. Artist Jay Ahr has taken the iconic Hermes handbag to the next level, reworking scarce vintage pieces in his very unique way. These handbags will surely set you back a pretty penny or two, but will serve as heirlooms for future generations.
I am a real sucker for a comfy robe, but that is pretty much where the similarity ends. This truly decadent silk robe is embellished with vintage Chantilly lace that takes your bedroom wear to the next level completely. Some of us like to snuggly up Barefoot Dreams style, the chunkier the robe the better, and others prefer to drape themselves in what could almost be considered works of art.
These Gucci gloves will certainly up the ante on any evening wear, at a hefty $1100, they better. The decadence of them isn’t just in their price tag but equally in their design, they are what princess dreams are made of. In this #equalpay, #anythingtheycandowecandobetter world, anything supremely feminine or coquettish raises eyebrows.. Something we are keen to eliminate, part of the joy of being a woman is the femininity and daintiness, it doesn’t mean we can’t get things done, just differently. I personally feel that the worst thing we can do for ourselves is to compare ourselves to men, why should we?
Well if you are ever going to invest in a jewelry box, then this is probably the one to go for. Not only is it beautifully made, by British luxury brand Smythsons, it is also extremely functional. The sliding and removable drawers give plenty of flexibility and appear to have been designed by someone who really understands the nature of jewelry boxes. We have seen our fair share of intriguing yet completely ridiculous jewelry boxes, so this comes as a welcome reprieve.
Well if you like to travel in comfort then this should probably be on your list. This blanket, slippers and eye mask set by Fendi in the softest cashmere and silk combination is housed in a matching zipper bag, can also be used at home, not just in travel. At a cool $3500, we think this set should be stretches as far as it can go..
Well this tops our decadent list, simply because we doubt that it can actually serve as anything other than an object of art which it really is. The crystal-embellished Judith Leiber Couture clutch won’t fit your Iqos or your mobile phone, but seriously maybe you just don’t care.. Judith Leiber is famous for her encrusted clutches which have become collector’s items and can get a pretty penny at auction. The fact that there is now a further decadent, couture category just goes to show you that they are in fact in high demand, the more decadent the better.
The reason why these wonderful earrings are on the list is because at over $47000 they hardly have any diamonds or other precious stones, the cost is in the workmanship. Often times expensive items are purchased because they look expensive, or have a great resale value. The fact that there earrings are so dainty and fine, speaks to the focus on design and the importance of it for the acquirer of this fabulous pair of earrings.
