Prior to our current situation, I’ve always been a fan of luxury online boutiques. One of the best is Net-A-Porter. I mention it often in my stories simply because the customer service, selection and website approach are always the best.
I find myself on the website not just to browse, but to learn about the new trends. They often offer editorials so you can easily learn how to integrate what they offer with your lifestyle. My beauty cult favorites are also found here, such as Charlotte Tilbury and Olaplex. The former is where I get my favorite lipsticks, while the latter is what I swear by when it comes to my hair.
Another favorite online boutique I love is 1stDibs. Self-declared as the place for “The World’s Most Beautiful Things,” the website is geared to replicating the sophistication of a Parisian flea market. What you get is vintage, antique, and contemporary furniture, home decor, fine jewelry, watches, art and fashion.
The selection is curated from more than 600 cities around the globe. You’re in for an inventory that you will dream about, from Van Cleef & Arpels vintage pieces to unique furniture that doubles as art pieces, like the Pier Alessandro Giusti and Egidio Di Rosa “Brugiana” Dining Table.
A story of brick-and-mortar to e-commerce is MyTheresa. The boutique in Munich has been one hot spot for only the best when it comes to fashion for 30 years. In 2006, they opened up their online channel, and thus the world became privy to the exclusives at MyTheresa. The love for MyTheresa quickly grew with a kids section added in 2019 and this year, a section for men.
Safe, quick and updated
It’s only getting better, as this list has a new item on it: Trunc.ph. I’m happy to see a Filipino name joining the league of top-tier online luxury boutiques.
Trunc.ph offers a safe, quick and updated way to access your favorite brands like Marc Jacobs, Armani Exchange and Kenneth Cole, among many others.
At Trunc.ph, you are guaranteed that your data is secure and that you have an easy way to navigate through thousands of choices. I like their categories that don’t only include Women, Men, and Kids and Toys. You also get a separate category for Home + Living, and Powder Room.
Powder Room is all about beauty. You can get Smashbox, Lush and Koh Gen Do. There’s also a Men’s Skincare category at the Powder Room for stuff like grüum bard Beard Wash.
There’s a section dedicated to Home Scents where you can stock up on little things that will brighten up you space and make it smell good, too, such as the Yope Soy Candle.
In the Home & Living section, you can get decor like the West Elm Delilah Table Lamp and big furniture like the Pottery Barn Manchester Swivel Armchair.
Trunc.ph also offers Trunc Show, an edit of the most sought-after designer styles. Here you can study how to wear your new Trunc pieces with your wardrobe. It’s a guided way to shop when you need a little help or a fresh idea that will get you excited again.
