As Summer transitions into Autumn, we look back at the most lustworthy accessories set to take you into the season ahead.
The chicer sibling of the retro bum-bag, this season’s bag is altogether more elegant. Best described as a belt-bag, these refined accessories took centre stage on the Spring/Summer runways. From clean and uncomplicated at Chanel in classic quilted white leather to ultra-compact at Salvatore Ferragamo, these are an elevated upgrade from the 80s-bum-bag. It seems white is the colour de jour, with Fendi and Givenchy offering up pristine leather versions with just enough space for the daily essentials.
No longer reserved for the preppy crowd only, this season’s must-have headpiece is the humble headband. However, SS19’s iterations are hardly muted, with the likes of Miuccia Prada offering up every kind of style from studded to satin and ribbons. If simplicity is your preference, ease yourself into the trend with Dior’s balletic bands or become a bejewelled princess with Miu Miu’s miniature sparkling bow band.
The suitably 70’s Studio 54-esque party vibe is still going strong in the footwear department this season. Known and loved for their signature stacked heels, Miu Miu retain their platform-crown this season with zesty lime satin adding a girlish twist. Saint Laurent’s glittered platforms wouldn’t look out of place circa-Ziggy Stardust while Dolce & Gabbana paid homage to the disco queens themselves. Pair with a cropped pant to elongate the leg.
