Forget flowers this Valentine’s Day — after all, nothing says “I love you” like some good old luxury fashion. If you’re on the lookout for a chic gift this February 14 then here are five ideas.
A classic trench coat is a wardrobe staple and Burberry is one of the go-to brands for sophisticated outwear. The UK fashion house has turned out a version of its trench in 100 percent brushed cashmere in a romantic ruby tone that is both traditional and bold. $2,795 from Net -a-Porter.
If you want to buy perfume then head over to the French house of Nina Ricci, which is redesigning the iconic apple-shaped bottle of its “Nina” fragrance, to celebrate the scent’s 10th anniversary. French artist Coco has covered the packaging with a white lacquer finish splashed with artistic red, pink, orange, yellow and blue dots. The special “Nina Pop” edition has just launched priced at €58.87 for 50ml and €72.58 for 80ml. Christian Louboutin
When Christian Louboutin announced the launch of a debut lipstick collection for Fall 2015, fashion and beauty fans went crazy. Encased in slick art deco packaging, the collection remains one of the most stylish makeup items out there. Opt for “Sheer Voile”, a classic red hue. $90.
Luxury lingerie brand Agent Provocateur has teamed up with high-end shoe designer Charlotte Olympia on a brand-new collection released this month. The pieces, including this leopard print teddy for $790, are bold and feminine, with a touch of Hollywood glamour.
Jewelry is a popular choice for Valentine’s Day, and with good reason. Keep things fashionable with this chunky and bold Lanvin “Love” necklace in gold-toned brass, featuring Swarovski crystals. $685.
