More is more

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TRENDS BEAUTY BEAT -

IF Paris Fash­ion Week has taught us one thing, it is that ac­ces­sories will have at­ti­tude for Au­tumn/ Win­ter 2016.

As the last few days of the readyto- wear shows have proven, metallics, lay­er­ing and fur re­main some of the key trends for the up­com­ing sea­son, as de­sign­ers adopt a “more is more” phi­los­o­phy. Belt bags, which made their de­but back on the cat­walks of Spring 2016, con­tin­ued to pop up, with Vanessa Se­ward show­cas­ing neat, satchel- like leather de­signs.

Ce­line fol­lowed suit, with mod­els sport­ing square black pouch purses on fine leather strips. At Veronique Bran­quinho there were no bags, but the belts were wide and struc­tured, with a metal­lic sheen that walked the line be­tween mod­ern and Me­dieval.

Jew­ellery was bold and com­manded at­ten­tion, epit­o­mized by the edgy ear cuffs on show at Saint Lau­rent, while at Ce­line, jacket belts were wound around the wrists in a new take on the ban­gle, in a show of mul­ti­pur­pose ac­ces­soriz­ing.

Chanel even man­aged to make its sig­na­ture la­dy­like pearls look re­bel­lious by lay­er­ing them in heaps across the torso and mix­ing them up with over­sized black rib­bons.

The French house also at­tracted at­ten­tion with its un­con­ven­tional flow­er­pot- style hats, kept in place with pearl chin­straps.

But when it came to head­wear it was So­nia Rykielthat stole the show, with gi­ant Rus­sian furs that half hid the mod­els' faces.

There were plenty of quirkier ac­ces­sories on of­fer, too – many came cour­tesy of Vivi­enne West­wood – whose show in­cluded blue be­jew­elled masks and net­ting worn draped over the legs. – AFP Re­laxnews
