WORDS BY DAISY SCOTT
In 2022, it’s time for you to complete your closet. We've selected the signature items from FARFETCH most-loved brands that every tastemaker should own — whether you’re a monochromatic minimalist, bold bright expressionist, or you’ve always wanted to have a capsule wardrobe.
If there’s one staple piece that everyone should have in their closet, it’s a pair of sneakers. Over the last few years, sneakers have become the ultimate finishing touch to any outfit — whether it’s the latest drop or the original model, sneakers can make or break your style.
One brand has been able to capture our imagination. It's kept us waiting in line for the newest re-invention or bidding online. adidas YEEZY has been providing us with major street credit since its signature Boost 750 model hit the stores.
Surpassing the 'must-have' sneaker status and instantly becoming the new icon in the sneaker world, adidas YEEZY is easily one of our most-loved brands. Now, it feels as though everyone owns a pair of YEEZY's — but if you don't we've compiled our favorite pairs for instant sneaker updates.
A constant across most models is the brands signature breathable Primeknit uppers and Boost cushioning. The adidas YEEZY 350 V2 "Carbon" may be one of the most popular pairs thanks to its monofilament side stripes and dark colorway, while the adidas YEEZY 350 V2 "Zyon" showcases the brand's emblems with its semi-translucent rubber midsole.
Even though there is a multitude of sneakers out there that suit any style, we prefer to stick to what we know best. If you prefer to wear sneakers that inhabit your nostalgia — we recommend adding a pair of Jordan's to your shoe collection (it's not like you needed convincing anyway).
First designed for Michael Jordan in 1984, Air Jordan's became the first original pair of sell-out sneakers across the globe — they were the sneakerheads magnus opus. Today, Jordan continues to bring the classic silhouette into your closet — think of the signature blood red and white colorway. Or maybe you want to keep on top of trends? Then look no further than Jordan collaborations with Dior and Travis Scott.
When we are talking about favorites, we instantly think of the Air Jordan Mid and Air Jordan 1 Low.
Inspired by the first AJ1, the Air Jordan 1 Mid's allow the retro fans to have a chance to follow in the footsteps of the classic tastemakers. With a multicolor colorway, this pair comes in a gray and white style with the signature Swoosh logo in blue.
The Air Jordan 1 Low was released in 1985 and is best known for its bold color-blocking. While the 'NIKE AIR' branding on the tongue of the sneaker has been replaced with the Jumpan logo, and the line's wings insignia has been moved to the lower heel from the ankle tab.
The world of purses and accessories may often feel like a minefield, it's possible to keep adding the newest trend to your outfit for every event. But once you've found the ideal accessory that matches every single outfit, why should you change what you love?
Our choice for any event? The Saint Laurent monogram plaque pouch. With its interlocking YSL logo that represents the brand's Parisian roots and rich heritage it is an instant classic. Designer from pebbled black leather, this pouch features a folder top in an envelope style that can move effortlessly from day-to-night.
If you can't get enough of the aesthetic, then look to re-iterations of the same style. Look to the Uptown crocodile-embossed pouch and white reinterpretations of the monogram plaque pouch — like we said, why dramatically change what you already love.
After the New Year celebrations, there's no need for you to leave the sparkles behind. Choose to bring glamor into your everyday style with Amina Muaddi pumps.
Stealing the hearts of fashion lovers alike, Amina Muaddi has found the equilibrium of effortless glamor and trend-led design. From the Gilda to the Begum styles, you can expect to find neon flashes, crystal-embellishments, and the signature high-sculptured heel.
But what should you first choice be? What style should you invest in first? Introducing the Rosie 95mm pump. The model's transparent design is accented with its crystal bow detailing and shining silver panelling, making it the perfect choice for any special occasion.
From graduations, birthdays, and baby showers — if you haven't been made aware of MACH & MACH pumps, we are unsure of where you have been. The modern equivalent of Cinderella's glass slippers, these pumps have been seen on A-list celebrities and off-duty models alike. But where should you start looking if you are a newbie to the sparkling style?
Start your style reinvention with the Double Bow 110mm pumps. This statement pair is adorned with crystalized eye-catching bow applique and ankle straps. Now you know what silhouette to start with, you can decide to add to your collection with translucent purple and sunset orange shades.
