“Enhance a chic LBD with standout accessories.”
“Add luxe accents with golden jewelry.”
“Create the ultimate red lip as a final touch.”
We all know that accessories maketh the outfit, and with the fall collections packed with the most sensational shoes and bags we have seen in a long time (and we have seen a lot), we just knew we had to dedicate an entire issue to them.
These are the pieces that perfectly complement the season’s more classic silhouettes and refined palettes, and come in new shapes and finishes to truly get excited about. Turn to The List for our showcase of fall’s top updates, from the cult Fendi “cuddle bag” to the exquisite pearl-encrusted clutch and ankle boots by McQueen and Nicholas Kirkwood. And form an orderly queue for the simple black tote, upscaled with deluxe metal hardware – it’s the talk of the office.
No one knows the power of the statement bag like
our interviewee, Silvia Venturini Fendi, who talks about creating the iconic Baguette, and kick-starting the It-bag craze. Plus, see Style Rethink for your perfect capsule shoe closet. Fashion heaven, indeed.
