ELLE (Australia) - - Contents -

The ac­ces­sories la­bels you need in your favourites list.

AMINA MUADDI

WHO: Jor­da­nian-ro­ma­nian Muaddi cut her teeth at Ital­ian lux­ury footwear la­bel Os­car Tiye be­fore launch­ing her epony­mous brand last year.

WHAT: Bright state­ment boots, min­i­mal san­dals with dia­manté straps and eye-grab­bing sculp­tural mules.

WHY: Th­ese party shoes pose a se­ri­ous threat to our sneaker-dom­i­nated shoe­drobes. Per­fect part­nered with denim.

COMPLÉT

WHO: Leonora Fuhrer-ag­mon (god­daugh­ter of Hu­bert de Givenchy) co-founded Complét with friends Emily Whyte Meri­dor and Si­van Moshkovitz.

WHAT: Ge­o­met­ri­cally-shaped totes, belt bags and cross-body hand­bags, re­alised in leather and de­signed in a fresh colour pal­ette.

WHY: For the smug sat­is­fac­tion of own­ing an “It bag” that the av­er­age punter can’t name-spot on sight.

SU­SAN ALEXAN­DRA

WHO: This New York-based de­signer’s eclec­tic list of in­spi­ra­tion ranges from Frida Kahlo and hip-hop to “water­melon candy” and “salad bars”.

WHAT: Kitschy-cool beaded hand­bags with rain­bow and fruit mo­tifs (the “Cit­rus” bag has a size­able wait­list) and play­ful jewellery with an el­e­vated “craft class” sen­si­bil­ity.

WHY: Be­cause hand­bags cov­ered in cher­ries and bronze-plated “shrimp cock­tail” ear­rings are sci­en­tif­i­cally proven to lift your mood – and your pantsuit.
