Don’t Feed the Animals-------
See that bat attacking Cara Delevingne’s face? That’s a hat by Stephen Jones for Giles Deacon, who, if you may recall, gained street-style traction a couple of seasons back with his adorably plush triceratops purses. As it turns out, the animal-as-accessory trend is back for Spring ’14, spearheaded by Jones x Deacon’s vampiric topper. But not all in this animal kingdom is nocturnal.
Things were sunnier at Moschino Cheap And Chic, thanks in part to a Crayola-pink lawn flamingo purse, which complemented the collection’s overarching Barbie-goes-to-Basel (Miami, not Switzerland) theme. Cheek has always been part of the Moschino vocabulary, but this felt particularly grin-worthy.
The buzz factor, though, belonged to Ashley Williams. Showing under Fashion East, the much-hyped designer offered stuffed-hammerhead shark purses, which rounded out her nautical-themed lineup with good-humored aplomb. And who was spotted eyeing Williams’ wares from the front row? None other than Harry Styles, who, we think, would look rather fetching carrying Williams’ deadly fish as a “murse.”
