Succession’s Shiv Roy Is Providing A Masterclass In Quiet Luxury Dressing

No ludicrously capacious bags here.

Succession queen Shiv Roy’s closet is far more than a collection of chic power suits, it’s a lesson in the quiet luxury trend that’s become the fashion buzz word of the moment.

It’s a complete flip from the logo obsession the style set harboured in 2022, which saw highly branded pieces become the trend du jour, from collections at Chanel to collaborations like Gucci X Northface and Fendi X SKIMS.

Now, 2023 is being hailed the year of quiet luxury, moving away from monogram mania and the desire to be dripping in designer branding, instead favouring minimalism over flashiness and one or two power pieces over maximalism.

And, no one embodies quiet luxury quite like our favourite Succession femme, Shiv (played by Sarah Snook), with her understated style choices and aversion to brand-names, despite her abundant wealth.

The trend, and Shiv’s style, is based on quality pieces and fabrics (think: merino wool, cashmere, cottons, leather and silk) that look and feel luxurious without stating so through a label.

As such, identifying exact matches from Shiv’s closet can prove tricky—we’re still trying to find *that* backless sweater that sent fans into a frenzy.

However, the overall aesthetic-a collection of turtlenecks, soft suiting, silk blouses and the occasional statement evening gown-has us believing the only daughter of Succession’s billionaire tyrant, Logan Roy, would shop from the likes of Max Mara and The Row.

In the first episode of season four, eagle-eyed fans believed they’d spotted none other than a SKIMS bodysuit sported by Shiv, first under a tonal blazer and relaxed trouser before switching into a cardigan for an emotional chat with soon-to-be ex-husband, Tom.

However, the suggestion has been disproved by the brand since, leaving us to assume it’s a well-crafted dupe.

Nonetheless, if you’re looking to channel Shiv and her understated luxury, scroll on for our top picks to shop the look.
