The two-bag approach – a common scene on the daily commute, totes full of gym kits, micro-bags full of credit cards. But now designers from Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, and Loewe have translated the look into their codes. Chanel packed a punch with identical bags on each hip, while Fendi matched its shoulder bag to its carry-all tote.
There’s no doubt about it, mega-lens sunglasses have landed. Say it’s a reaction to the micro-lenses that have swept the streets, now the dial has turned 180-degrees with larger than life shapes from Gucci, Loewe, Miu Miu, Stella, Tod’s and Tom Ford. Think anywhere between a wraparound surf style to a noughties sport aesthetic – championed by Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
Miuccia Prada showed 50 gloriously exaggerated headbands with every one of her SS19 runway looks – studded, beribboned, sumptuous satin and leather – proving not only hero-buy status but also, signalling a big move in the hair adornment game. Dior’s elasticated ballet hairbands were a slick way to ease into the idea, while Simone Rocha’s runaway success of her beaded hair-slides (worn so prevalently in fashion circles, they’ve become something of a modern accessory classic) have transitioned into headbands decorated with mini plumes. Expect to see a flurry infiltrate next year’s wedding season.
