Fashion trend: Accessories
When it comes to Fall 2013 accessories, less is definitely not more. Decadence weaved its way into handbags, jewellery, footwear and more for the upcoming season.
Fall 2013 accessories are big, over the top and statement making, literally, with words adorning clutches at Acne and necklaces at Lanvin. Equally as attention-grabbing in the jewellery department were crosses, with A-list designers such as Alberta Ferreti giving the religious symbol a high-fashion makeover. Dolce & Gabbana added embellished gold cross earrings and equally extravagant gold cross necklaces to their captivating ensembles.
Gone were the open-toed gladiator heels of last season. For Fall 2013 we have the oxford trend to look forward to with several designers adding clunky heels to the traditional menswear staple. Models at Bottega Veneta strutted down the runway in a dusty pink version of the style while Moschino Cheap and Chic showed off a black and white tuxedo-esque take on the shoe.
New shapes and textures were added to runway accessories for the ultimate head-turning effect. Fur found its way onto handbags at Fendi and Louis Vuitton and onto boots at Marni- offering a modern take on the timeless, luxurious style. Also leaving its mark in the handbag department was the quirky novelty bag. Chanel’s pint-sized globe purse and Carven’s endearing fish bag added the perfect amount of cheeky charm to over the top ensembles.
