Gone are the times when your add-ons played 2d mess around on your outfit; in the beyond few years, way too several cult labels, an announcement-making heel, or a desire It bag has grown to be the actual big name of the show. And for spring – a season that always makes us experience a bit playful within the wardrobe department – we are spoiled for desire.
Whether it’s the Carrie-accredited ’00s (assume naked heels and shoulder bags) or herbal materials like bamboo and rattan, there are a plethora of add-ons developments to dip your toe into this season. Without similar ado, meet SS19’s standout add-ons, from turbo-charged sandals to larger-than-life sun shades.
With the reissue of iconic ’00s, It luggage – from Fendi’s Baguette to Dior’s Saddle – 2019 has visible the go back of city-slick in’ slinky add-ons match for Carrie Bradshaw. Cult label Staud’s first foray into shoes this yr noticed it revive such unfashionable shapes as the bare heel (all straps and now not a whole lot else), the thong sandal (very Ibiza 2001), and the wedge mule. This season we are donning nothing more than a silk slip get dressed and a few coquettish kitten heels – Charlotte Olympia’s leopard pair has greater sex attraction – tucking our bag underneath our arm and heading out into the nighttime. Cocktails are on us.
The recognition of Grenson’s Nannette signaled a shift in the direction of the sensible ultimate yr, with 12-eyelet, rubber-soled, heavy-responsibility boots kicking their manner to the top of our footwear collection. I don’t suppose the utilitarian trend has gone off-piste this season, even though. Belt bags are as practical as ever (we couldn’t get via competition season without one), turbo-charged sandals are changing our stomping boots – Stella McCartney’s emblem pair is our favorite – and the rainproof hat is making umbrellas redundant, as seen at Gianni and Rejina Pyo. Time to explore.
Everyone from Vetements to Balmain, Chanel to Fendi is making themselves crystal clear this season. Maybe social media is making showoffs of us all, encouraging us to flaunt our prized possessions in see-thru totes like this Versace number (Staud does several perfect PVC baggage, too). Or maybe it’s the kitschiness of the fabric that we embrace; from Simone Rocha’s childlike headband to Zara’s beaded bag, accessories that we might have worn in primary school are reigning preferred. Either manner, transparency is prime.
There’s been a pass closer to natural fabrications over the last few seasons, whether or not it’s retro substances like rattan and bamboo or sculptural pieces fabricated from timber carved into photo shapes. Jacquemus (the king of motel put on) has championed straw luggage for a while, and this announcement-making seaside bag is spring/summer perfection. Cult Gaia has led the % regarding earthy substances in arty paperwork, and this new-season beaded bag is as cute as they come.
