Quiet Luxury: 2023 Trend

Quiet luxury, a trend that has taken the fashion world by storm. Also known as ‘silent money aesthetic’, it embodies an understated elegance and sophistication that resonates with a more subtle fashion expression. Despite its striking trending during 2023, it has been around for centuries and we predict that it is here to stay for the next years.

Dating from all the way back to Renaissance, this evolving concept challenges the conventional notions of luxury, prioritizing quality, craftsmanship, and exclusivity over overt logos and flashy displays. The main focus of quiet luxury is a pursuit of timeless style and a rejection of fast fashion, well aligned with the values of secondhand fashion.

What is Quiet Luxury?

The term “quiet luxury” emerged in the early 21st century, reflecting a shift in consumer values towards more mindful and sustainable choices. This movement gained momentum as individuals began to seek out products that spoke to their unique sense of style without succumbing to the trends of fast fashion.

Quiet luxury emphasizes the importance of subtlety and a focus on intrinsic value. Although it has been applied in all types of fashion as well as decoration aesthetics, it has been particularly popular in the field of luxury designer bags.

Designer bags, long associated with status and prestige, have become symbolic of the quiet luxury trend. The vintage designer bags that fall in the category of quiet luxury, often feature minimalist designs. This approach appeals to a demographic that values authenticity and individuality over fashion items of mass-production.

Vintage fashion plays a pivotal role in the quiet luxury movement, offering a sustainable and unique alternative to the mass-produced items flooding the market. Owning a vintage designer bag of minimalist style that carries a story and lasts through time, has been the newest addition to the quiet luxury experience which today, has been associated with quality more than ever.

Some examples of quiet luxury luxury bags may be, but not limited to, the following brands which are the highlight of the movement:
