Resort ’15: Our Top 20 Accessories

-------

071014_Now_Trending_Resort_Accessories_blogAnyone who’s been through the Resort ringer or brushing up on our trend reports recognizes the season’s commercial significance. Pre-Spring is time to shine when it comes to sales, and we witnessed savvy brands amping up their accessories offerings this year—because at the end of the day, most customers would still rather invest in a timeless bag or a terrific pair of shoes than blow their budget on a fancy cocktail dress they’ll only break out occasionally. This summer, the editors here at Style.com have all but sworn off our heels in favor of still-trendy sneakers or casual flats, and so we got a kick out of the down-to-earth gladiators (much easier than the towering styles made popular two years ago) from the likes of Miu Miu, Valentino, and Sacai Luck. Similarly, the latest lineups from Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim both featured knee-high, lace-up desert boots ideal for stomping on city sidewalks. Elsewhere, Nicolas Ghesquière earned extra credit for his Cruise extras spotted on the Louis Vuitton runway in Monaco. Highlights here included the monogrammed Petite Malle bag, which was updated with a chain-link handle. Among this season’s other fresh accessories propositions were Reed Krakoff’s new RK40 satchel, which was a bona fide hit at his recent presentation; Stella McCartney’s bejeweled wooden clutches; and Gucci’s killer go-go boots. Of course, we couldn’t resist the novelty factor of Giles’ playful stegosaurus purse and Jeremy Scott’s “This Is Not a Moschino T-Shirt” moment.

Ditching Heels for Furry Moccasins

-------

Now TrendingLadies, take it from us: Nothing kills a fashion week buzz quite like wiping out in front of a pack of street-style photographers in a pair of teetering stilettos. The glacial weather we’ve been enduring here in New York calls for practical footwear, but the trusty pair of Sorels you’ve been slushing around in all winter are all but guaranteed to earn you some disapproving looks from your boss. If only we could shop designers’ new Pre-Fall collections now. The Louis Vuitton and Fendi lineups both included furry moon boots, while Balenciaga’s sculptural looks were shown with practical yet polished pony-hair lace-up moccasins. Think of them as a luxe evolution of mukluks. And speaking of evolution, we also have our eyes trained on Chitose Abe’s fuzzy sneaker hybrid for Sacai Luck.

Here, a slideshow of Pre-Fall’s most functional and furry footwear.
