LON­DON: New­ton’s Third Law is for ev­ery ac­tion there is an equal and op­po­site re­ac­tion. Ex­tend that the­ory to every­day life and for ev­ery diet there is a binge, for ev­ery un­der­stated out­fit there is a spec­tac­u­lar ac­ces­sory. And hooray for that, for who doesn’t love a cheery, eye-catch­ing bag or piece of cos­tume jew­ellery?

These days, two of the con­tem­po­rary de­sign­ers most re­spon­si­ble for driv­ing fash­ion for­ward, Phoebe Philo at Ce­line and JW An­der­son at his epony­mous la­bel and Span­ish lux­ury la­bel, Loewe, have styled the most re­cent iof their ready-to-wear col­lec­tions with over­sized ear­rings, ban­gles, chok­ers and pen­dants. – The In­de­pen­dent
