Faithful companions #1
The human being never ceases to amaze me with its intricate personality and peculiar ways and traits. We have the unique ability to develop bonds with not only other humans, but material objects as well.
When it comes to fashion and garments, those bonds are intrinsically linked with your passion for those subjects: whereas some people absolutely love and treasure their pieces as works of art, others have a more rational approach and view them as nothing more than means to an end. I, for one, without falling into the furthest end of the spectrum, am leaning towards the first group…
Like me, I’m certain all of you have items you cherish above all others, pieces you’ve been wearing for years and with which you share a special link - be it because they are imbued with sentimental value, take you back to a particular time or place or are simply outstanding in design and fit. Interestingly enough, no matter how big your wardrobe may get, more likely than not you’ll have just a few select meaningful pieces whose closet space is set in stone.
In the Faithful Companions series I’ll share my own selection of garments, accessories and objects with you. For the first entry I chose my Goti silver string. Crafted by renowned Tuscan jeweler Riccardo Goti, it has been my only piece of jewelry (apart from watches which I place in a different category) for the last five or so years. This is probably one of my most meaningful accessories as I rarely take it off and “we’ve” been through a lot…come to think of it, it’s the closest thing I have to a good luck charm.
