Trend Files- The Latest And Greatest In Accessory Trends This Season
Reed Krakoff’s “Gym Bag” looks nothing like the mesh ones we usually see at the gym, it’s more like the glamorous sibling that took a sabbatical in Paris and never looked back. Graphic, sculptural and born from a unique vision of modern style, popular accessories today have to a perfect balance of luxury and utility. Handbag’s alone do not an outfit complete though. Finding the perfect sunnies and picking out a gorgeous statement bangle or bracelet are essential as well.
After serving as the Senior Vice President and Executive Creative Director of Coach, with over 20 years experience in the fashion industry, Reed Krakoff launched his own collection of handbags, accessories, shoes and jewelry in 2010. The Reed Krakoff “Gym Bag” come in a variety of materials and patterns such as the ones with the contrast stripe. The silver python with Rhodium hardware runs high in the price scale at $4500, while the more simple designs like the cinnamon hued plain leather is on sale at $693. All bags feature a detachable cross-body strap and impressive depth to keep daily essentials in a chic, functional package.
Take a look at our other picks for sunglasses, including the ever so popular “cat-eye” which looks just as classic in simple black opaque as it does in more embellished versions like the rare vintage piece from the legendary House of Schiaparelli. Also, speaking of vintage, we are still obsessed with round lenses, like Nasty Gal’s Janis $20 sunnies that would do John Lennon proud.
As far as arm candy goes, wraps and lacquered bracelets are accessory du jour and meant to be stacked for maximum impact. Nothing says Spring quite like a hefty layering of C Wonder’s hand-painted enamel pyramid-studded bracelets which are available in pink, blue, gold and white. The more the merrier, as they say.
