Every fashion week is a melting pot of ideas that acquaints one with not only the emerging trends but also refresh a few from the past. As London concluded its fashion week, Milan has already begun unveiling the much-awaited collections this week.
It is hard not to admire the quirkiness which is in abundance at these shows. From Burberry’s see-now-buy-now show, where 83 looks inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando were showcased to Christopher Kane’s refurbished crocs, all marked a new era of fashion accessories — which were once spurned at these shows. Here is a sneak peek into the best accessories from both the fashion weeks.
Banana clutches on the runway: Models dancing with a giant foam banana is how her show commenced. This collection by Charlotte Olympia was no less — an epitome of fashionable accessories, she kept up with her signature style.
A fruity spectacle: Decked out to resemble an 1940’s cabaret bar Charlotte Olympia’s runway was undoubtedly an uplifting spectacle. Her latest collection at London Fashion Week had clutches and footwear festooned with fruits, birds of paradise and tropical flowers.
Say ‘yes’ to the style mantras this season: Anya Hindmarch who is known for shattering all fashion conventions, this time again came up with mesmerising bags that took centrestage rather than ensembles. Provocative shapes, mix of colours and toned-down silhouettes are meant to channel your inner fashionista.
Unapologetically bold: Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s creative director who is often crowned as Gucci’s commercial saviour after a significant spike in sales, presented his latest collection in Milan earlier this week. Keeping up with Gucci’s aesthetics the collection included floral, brocade which were unapologetically bold.
A treat at LFW: Burberry’s mammoth see-now-buy-now show featured 83 looks from Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando which inspired many to channel their inner rebellion. The collection was dominated by sheer ensembles, leather boots and some colourful clutches.
Inspired by childhood: Ashley Williams traded in florals and stateliness for textures and stuff toys. Who says stuff toys are only for children? A sweet-subtly dog-shaped sling is what we all are looking up to next. This ready-to-wear collection included funky-knitwear, statement sleeves bake-off dresses.
