Luxury items last years longer than cheaper, poorly made pieces. I have been wearing my various pairs of Gucci slides for over 6 years now. Quality over quantity, always.
I buy many of my luxury items Secondhand, which means I am not buying new. Giving these luxury items a new home continues to support the sustainable fashion circle of life.
Cheap, fast fashion brands use unethical practices when making their clothes, which means you are supporting these practices.
