Tailoring and the right accessory epitomise the Quiet Luxury trend that everyone is talking about.

By Ingrid Wood


The YourLuxury team went watch and jewel spotting at Watches and

Wonders 2023, and we’re excited to bring you all the novelties, trends, conversations – and even the unexpected pieces – to come out of the incredibly prestigious fair. From gem-set innovations to bold dials, coloured ceramics to playful designs (think Kermit the Frog!), writer Debbie Hathway shares her experiences from Geneva.

Since we were feeling inspired, we also did some window shopping for Father’s Day gifts to spoil the special man in your life – be it your dad, son, partner or friend – from high-end accessories to investment timepieces and fabulous scents, or perhaps even a bespoke suit. “A visit to a tailor can be the ultimate transcendental ode to the quiet luxury trend,” says writer Kimberley Schoeman, who interviewed fours tailors redefining the fit, so to speak.

Whatever your idea of quiet luxury is – that bespoke suit or an escape to the bush – there is a heightened awareness and a mindfulness filtering through. We believe it’s a lifestyle choice rather than a trend, and hopefully it’s here to stay.
