Louis Vuitton
Originally founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton is synonymous with luxury, exclusivity and style. For six consecutive years, from 2006 to 2012, Louis Vuitton held the title of being the most valuable luxury brand in the world, with over 460 stores in 50 different countries. Although the brand does create ready to wear collections, they also design exclusive pieces, and collaborate with artists and other designers to come up with limited edition collections.

Gucci
Gucci’s beginnings can be traced back to 1920, to a small shop in Florence that sold classic leather goods. Today, Gucci is the biggest selling Italian brand with over 450 stores around the world, as well as a variety of franchise deals and upscale department store outlets. Gucci’s distinctive style has made it one of the most copied brands in the world, but this hasn’t deterred its high-end clientèle, and the label continues to stand strong as one of the most exclusive fashion brands in the world.

Versace
Founded by Gianni Versace in 1978, Versace is one of the newer brands on OROGOLD’s list, but it didn’t take long for the label to become one of the most influential fashion labels in the world. With sharp cuts, vivid prints and offbeat colors, Versace consistently pushed the boundaries of fashion, integrating contemporary culture and fine art in many of their collections. While it may be one of the most expensive luxury fashion brands, Versace’s loyal customers are willing to pay any price for an exclusive Versace piece, but with such exquisite style on the line, it is not hard to see why.

Chanel
Chanel first gained popularity in the 1920’s, when Coco Chanel’s unique creations were the opposite of mainstream fashion at the time. Known for the invention of the Little Black Dress, as well as for the Chanel Suit and the Chanel No. 5 perfume, Chanel has become one of the most popular fashion houses of our time. Their collections are loved by celebrities and models, from Marilyn Monroe to Nicole Kidman, helping to elevate the brand’s status. While their ready to wear collections are always stunning, it is Chanel’s haute couture that OROGOLD loves the most, with these exclusive pieces being especially sought after.

From Louis Vuitton to Chanel, these fashion brands are not only some of the most exclusive in the world, but also some of the most well known. While the fashion industry may always be evolving, it is great to see that these luxury brands are able to hold their own, and continue to creatively innovate, significantly influencing the fashion industry as a whole.

Inspiring Beauty Quotes to Live By

Beautiful woman in a bathrobe

The topic of beauty is one that has been debated for centuries, mostly due to how subjective it is. No matter what your opinion on beauty may be, there are always those days when we could each do with a little beauty confidence booster, which is why OROGOLD has put together some truly inspiring beauty quotes to live by.

“There is no exquisite beauty…without some strangeness in the proportion.” Edgar Allan Poe
An American author and poet from the romantic movement, Edgar Allan Poe was one of the first well-known American writers to try to make a living solely from writing. This led him to have quite a financially unstable life, but, dedicated to his craft, Edgar Allan Poe went on to become one of the most respected writers of his time. His wise words on the topic of beauty are similar to a more recent quote by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld; “I don’t like standard beauty – there is no beauty without strangeness”, and both emphasize that, rather than stemming from perfection, exquisite beauty is found within ‘strangeness’ – those imperfect little quirks that many try to hide rather than embrace.

“Beauty [is] a kind of radiance. People who possess a true inner beauty, their eyes are a little brighter, their skin a little more dewy. They vibrate at a different frequency.” Cameron Diaz
Like many world-famous actresses, Cameron Diaz is constantly trying to bring attention to the fact that true beauty comes from within. Audrey Hepburn once said “true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” OROGOLD challenges you to think of some women that you find beautiful, and, other than their physical attributes, try to work out what it is that makes them beautiful. More often than not, you will find that it is in the aura that they emanate, and in their infectious positive energy. As Taylor Swift said, “happiness and confidence are the prettiest things you can wear”.

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” Franz Kafka
This quote from Franz Kafka, one of the most influential writers of the 20th Century, brings a really important point to attention – the fact that our perception of beauty changes as we age. While young, society has not yet been able to influence the way in which the world is seen, but, as we age, we start to only see beauty in line with societal norms and expectations, which only brings about detrimental effects. As Marilyn Monroe put it, to all the girls who think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, it’s society who’s ugly. OROGOLD urges you to constantly re-evaluate and challenge your own personal concept of beauty, ensuring that you are always able to form your own opinions rather than being heavily influenced by what society tells you is beautiful.

Beauty comes in so many different forms, and is one of the most subjective terms in the world. OROGOLD hopes that these inspirational beauty quotes help you to see that beauty really does come from within, so keep this in mind the next time you find yourself struggling with the concept of beauty.
