1. Cartier Tank Watch
Designed after the shape of tanks on the battlefields of World War I, this legendary watch was and still is a symbol of understated elegance. The watch somehow manages to be both rectangular and square, borrowing lines from its namesake, and it has remained part of the Cartier catalogue since it was created in 1917. The purity of its lines and its elegance allows for all types of creative versions. The Tank has had a legion of A-list celebrity wearers, including Jacqueline Onassis, Andy Warhol and – more recently – Michelle Obama.
You can choose between the steel or leather bracelet, this watch is classic, elegant and really is a staple for everyday wear.
2. Chanel Classic Flap
The Chanel handbag that would ultimately become synonymous with the brand was not created until 1983. The Chanel Classic Double Flap was first introduced when Karl Lagerfeld became creative director and decided to reinterpret Chanel’s iconic 2.55 Flap Bag. From his artistic vision came two new features – a leather woven chain and Double C turn-lock closure. Lagerfeld’s Classic Double Flap was a breakout success.
Almost forty years later, and out of all the Chanel handbags on the market, the Classic Double Flap remains one of the most sought-after pieces ever crafted.
3. Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pump
Having reached icon status due to pop culture, the Hangisi pumps aren’t only the most classic heels of the brand but are also some of the most iconic heels ever! These pumps are extremely chic and timeless, so if you are looking for the perfect wedding shoe look no farther. The now famous Manolo Blahnik buckle was first introduced in 2008 in the Hangisi pump. Blahnik designed the pump, embellished with a crystal buckle, in pink, black and green satin for spring ’08. Since then, the Hangisi style has evolved into boots, mules, d’Orsays and flats. It has been produced in over 100 materials and colorways, as well as in seven heel heights. Each pair of Hangisis is handmade in Italy, and each buckle is made up of 144 separate stones.
These pumps are like pieces of jewelry, you’ll treasure them forever!
4. Chanel Ballerinas
An old-time classic, Chanel’s ballet flats haven’t lost their charm—and probably never will. Audrey Hepburn famously adored these chic shoes in the 1950s, thanks to the fact that they provided a comfortable alternative to the era’s more popular heeled styles. Inspired by ballet slippers, this pair is comprised of quilted calfskin leather featuring the iconic CC logo at the toe. Chanel Ballerinas will never go out of style, they are as timeless as it comes. For some 70 years these shoes have been worn by chic women everywhere and of every age, and they are also lightweight and comfortable.
When it comes to Chanel Ballerinas it is not a matter of opinion, they will always be in style.
5. Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra Necklace
In 1968 a four-leaf clover design was introduced, and 50 years later it remains emblematic of the famous brand. It was inspired by the quatrefoil motifs that are found on the Moorish tiles of the Alhambra Palace in Granada. The Alhambra was also meant to function as a lucky charm — a tradition that stems from the Touch Wood rings introduced in 1924. It is as popular today as it was 50 years ago, proving the point that good design never goes out of fashion. A celebration of the Maison’s creativity, its pure lines and distinctive beaded silhouette are brought to life with a broad palette of natural materials. The Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace holds an impressive 113% of its value, according to The RealReal.
