Luxury over the Years - Sun, 24 May 2009, 00:00 EST
gorgeous accessory or a luxury dress is always very special for a
woman because, through a luxury item, she can also express her taste,
refinement, outlook and her sensual femininity. A luxury handbag
accessory enhances her charm and her beauty, highlighting love for
her body and her personality and her physical aspect.
The concept of
luxury has changed over the years. The word "luxury" has
different connotations than in the past now. This term has evolved
with the changing face of society and, above all, with the different
role that woman has gained in modern society in recent years, a
position which has allowed her to express herself in all her natural
beauty and restrained elegance.
In the past,
women had an idea of luxury as something purely aesthetic and
superfluous, a concept mainly for rich society ladies who wanted to
appear in society and be noticed. Luxury was seen as synonym of
eccentricity; the lover of luxury was almost always a woman loving
her and whose main role in life was to be looked at and admired for
her dress and for her physical beauty.
concept of luxury with the current generation can be considered
similar to the idea of luxury in the past in some ideological
aspects, even though it shows some notable differences. Woman, as
already indicated, is gaining a more privileged role in society every
day. She leads many political parties, she is manager of many
important industries and her life is very busy. She has to flying
from one country to another; spend a lot of time away from home,
always dealing with people. Her role of responsibility and power must
be supported by a physical look that is as reassuring as her
promises, so she has to pay a lot of attention to the care of her
image, always choosing something stylish but also sober and elegant,
which enhances her as a businessperson and as a woman. She wears luxury
dresses, where luxury is here a synonym of elegance and high
quality, the guarantee of a product which sets off the figure
perfectly and remains impeccable in any situation, even after a long
day's work. She needs a dress or an accessory which allows her to
spend the whole day out and about, without any problem or risk, with
the certainty of always having by her side a product of excellent
quality which doesn't ever let her down.
A luxury item
today has to satisfy not only a woman's wish to appear seductive,
refined and charming, but also her desire for comfort and
practicality. The business woman today needs to feel caressed and
pampered by her luxury product. She is no longer prepared to suffer
in order to appear sensual and gorgeous (as our grandmothers did) but
she wants the best of quality with the maximum comfort.
And what do
you think of a luxury item? Is it just a means to enhance your
appearence or is it fundamental to the life of today's woman?
