It appears that Kim Kardashian has made a journey to Tokyo in pursuit of a remarkable necklace adorned with diamonds and gemstones, which hails from Chanel's spring/summer 1995 collection. This exquisite piece showcases interlocking Cs and delicate tear-drop pearls, and holds significance in Greta Gerwig's incredibly successful Barbie movie.

With a sharp focus on Kardashian's growing jewelry collection, it's no surprise she quickly sought to acquire the standout creation after the film's release. Unlike other fashion influencers, this savvy entrepreneur shocked the audience at the 2022 Met Gala by wearing Jean Louis' stunning dress worn by Marilyn Monroe. Her collection of timeless treasures rivals esteemed museums.

Earlier this year, Kardashian bought Princess Diana's Attallah Cross necklace, which she wore during a charity event in London in 1984. The necklace was sold at auction for $197,453 (£160,000), and Sotheby's London expressed their delight at this sale.

Kardashian bid $379,500 for Jackie Kennedy's Cartier Tank watch at a Christie's auction in 2017. The watch has sentimental value as it was gifted to Jackie by her brother-in-law, Stanislaw "Stas" Radziwill. Kardashian revealed a personal connection to the timepiece, wearing it during her meeting with Donald Trump at the White House in 2019. She expressed to Vogue magazine that wearing the watch gave her a sense of empowerment and motivation to achieve her goals.

Kardashian's love of collecting runs in the family. She bought her daughter, North, a custom velvet jacket worn by Michael Jackson to Taylor's 65th birthday from Julien's Auctions in 2019 for $65,625. She also purchased a white fedora hat from Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" music video and a pair of Elvis Presley's rings for her brother Rob for $15,000 in 2020.

Kim Kardashian's next acquisition is speculated to be Carrie Bradshaw's iconic bridal headpiece, set to be auctioned by Sotheby's next month. Valued between $40,000 (£32,000) and $70,000 (£55,000), this accessory aligns with Kardashian's discerning taste and fashion-forward sensibilities.

Dress is a fundamental element of social evolution. It comprises one of the most basic building blocks of inequality. Fashion, likewise, is neither frivolous nor trivial. It matters, has consequences. Dress and fashion have a significant impact on the way people live, define themselves, and operate within their own habitats. It is a game of differentiation, the means by which one ethnic group distinguishes itself from another, one social status and religious affiliation from another. Dress and fashion help identify the foreign, the minority, and the marginal, and can emerge as an influential means by which people challenge their status and reshape their identity within their own societies or on the global stage. In order to understand the complexities of what people wear and why, sociologists, anthropologists, historians, philosophers, semiologists, linguists and many others input their immense expertise. The study of modern civilization fashion along with mass production can derive no assistance from world history before comparatively modern times. In human history fashion is new and its future path is unknown.
