In the world of luxury fashion, there are certain items that will forever be considered the epitome of elegant style. Who What Wear's fashion editors had a very serious brainstorm to compile a list of the ultimate luxury 'investment pieces' we would choose to invest in if money was no object. Chanel slingbacks, an Hermes bag, Roger Vivier pumps — many of these buys were just as sought after sixty years ago, as they are now. We had to include the classics, including a Max Mara camel coat and Tiffany jewellery, however we also added some relatively new names to the mix, including Scandinavian designer Cecile Bahnsen and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's The Row. 

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's label The Row makes basics in relaxed silhouettes and luxurious fabrics — you can pay up to £300 for a T-shirt and £11,000 for a coat.
Copenhagen-based designer Cecile Bahnsen creates beautiful made by hand dresses in silk tulle.
Balenciaga's Hourglass jacket is an iconic 'New Look' '50 silhouette, which has been reimagined by creative director Demna Gvasalia.
The Constance bag, which has the signature Hermès H logo, was created in 1959 and made popular by Jackie Kennedy.
Cartier's 'Panthère' watch was originally created in 1983, and relaunched in 2017 — it's named after a panther as the movement of the links in the bracelet are said to mirror the movement of animal.
Roger Viviers are timeless, and have been worn by many princesses.
When it comes to timeless leather handbags, Loewe's lightly-grained tan bags are a dream purchase.
A Max Mara camel belted coat is a wear-forever purchase.
Carrie Bradshaw's stiletto of choice — Manolo Blahniks are for many the ultimate shoe. The more crystal adornments, the better.
The Burberry trench was first designed in 1912 for officers in WW1. A century later, this is a wardrobe classic with an A List fan club.
Tiffany's 'T' jewellery is clean and minimal, but distinctive.
When it comes to midi dresses, everyone in the Who What Wear team dreams of owning one from Lemaire. 
Sonia Rykiel always creates amazing statement chunky knits. 
There are plenty of Chanel items we could have included on this list — but the two-tone slingbacks are a firm favourite with the fashion crowd.
