Connecting Fashion Around The World
Finally, the event we’ve been looking forward to the entire year – New York Fashion Week. As expected, everybody from Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, as well as a couple of new names, have brought on their A game. Each outfit and accessory we have been presented with had a little bit of something for every sartorial inclination. From head to toe, we had the opportunity to enjoy lace, diamonds, prints and several comeback items from our favorite fashion eras; here are the 7 best spring accessories from this year’s runway that are just to die for!
Sounds impossible? Not if you let Derek Lam take advantage of his creativity to turn what seems absolutely impossible into something totally wearable. This year, he presented us with all-white heels with a pointy tip; however, he dared to add the twist to this elegant shoe by adding leather laces, as well as a Velcro tape! Now that’s what we call innovation.
This year, we saw a lot of fashion comebacks – 60s fashionable Carrera sunglasses design in any color you can possibly imagine, 80s dramatic shoulder pads, and almost long-forgotten, pointy Victorian heels. But what makes them truly special is the fact that they are, none other, but slippers! So thanks to Givenchy, we now have a perfect shoe for every formal occasion, whether you need to pair it up with a long or a short dress, pair of pants or a mini skirt and a below-the-knee trench coat.
Heels not really your cup of tea? We understand how spending the entire day on your feet, running from one place to another can be quite a challenge in your favorite pair of stilettos, so we’ve decided to highlight this year’s Alexander Wang flats – all black, decorated with silver chain, these babies are bound to go with any casual outfit you pick for the day. Not to mention, they are heavenly comfortable – once you try them on, you’re be encha(i)nted.
Marc Jacobs never seizes to amaze us, with his always so colorful, innovative, yet extremely practical women’s bags. This season, he has prepared a more casual, over-the-shoulder handbag, conveniently white, to match this year’s oh so popular white shirt dresses. But to break the simplicity, he added colorful embellishments and abstract drawings. What to wear it with? Mostly casual, athletic wear, but it can go with sports elegance.
Nevertheless, Jacobs’ biggest competitors did not disappoint us either – what he added to this year’s runway was a 100% casual, neutral handbag that makes us forget all about the formal letter bags and opt for this little sack. Its unusual design is what makes it so practical, as a girl can fit almost anything in it. Yes, boys, it’s practical, no matter what you think. Ever seen Hermione lose her senses when browsing through hers? No. And it’s not magic, it’s Michael Kors’ brilliant design!
To go back to a bit more stylish pieces: after a few seasons of wearing a slightly less extravagant earrings, Oscar de la Renta has finally brought back this accessory. By ensuring they are at least neck-long, he managed to steal the entire show with them. Off to a wedding or a formal party where you are looking to make everyone’s heads turn? Dig no further in your closet, as with this pair of diamonds, little black dress can be you’re first choice, and will be so much more than that.
And what will Paris have in store for us? We’re about to find out, as it is (literally) right around the corner. Stay tuned.
