AW15 Accessories to Covet Now

Fur lined loafers by Gucci AW15

A selection of accessories straight from the AW15 catwalks, including fur pompoms and a hat worthy of its own museum plinth…

Lined in soft, wild fur, these Gucci shoes from Alessandro Michele’s first womenswear collection for the venerable Italian luxury house are an eccentric update to the classic horsebit loafer. Alessandro Michele’s colourful retro collection signified a clear break with the house’s past aesthetic, replacing this season’s ‘with the band’ glamour with the quiet chic of an Italian art student. These beautiful shoes are the perfect reminder of  this Gucci gear change.

Jewellery by Givenchy AW15

Statement jewellery, weighing down earlobes and punctuating facial features, was one of the focal points of Riccardo Tisci’s Victoriana-influenced collection for Givenchy. The brand’s stand out chandeller-drop earrings won’t be forgotten in a hurry

Fur Pompom Scarf by Céline AW15

At Céline, Phoebe Philo revisits a childhood favourite: the colourful pompom, By adding the furry-balls-of-fluff to an oversize scarf, she made ‘neckwear’ instantly cool again.  Wear loosely draped and almost grazing the floor.

Conical hat by Junya Watanabe AW15

Junya Watanabe’s AW15 collection was filled with sculptural wonders and this hat is one of them. Exploring mathematical equations through shilouette and intricate pleating, a Watanabe speciality, this hat, worn in addition to three-dimensional fabrics, turned the model into a walking art work.

Bag, Louis Vuitton

Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection for Louis Vuitton playfully altered the brand’s famous interlocking capitals. The (almost) three dimensional emblem on this bag is too good to miss. Patent leather in primal red updates the classic handbag shape, making this bag an instant classic.
