Brilliant color has been one of the major runway stories of Spring ’11 so far, and not only in apparel. Accessories are turning up in vivid shades, too. In particular, we’ve noticed a preference for green at the Milan shows to date, ranging from a dark teal all the way to apple. We’ve arranged them across the spectrum here, with bags from (left to right) Salvatore Ferragamo, Fendi, Prada, Jil Sander, and Bottega Veneta, above. But to really appreciate them, you need to click the image above for a larger version—in living color, as it were.
André Balazs has made certain guests at the Standard hotels will be able to bare all this summer. Quiksilver bikinis and board shorts will be available for purchase from poolside vending machines in August, so now you really have no reason to stay dry. [WWD]
There’s been a design-team shakedown at Salvatore Ferragamo. Massimiliano Giornetti, the menswear designer, will now be taking on womenswear as well. He will replace Cristina Ortiz, whose designs were a bit too “sexpot,” for Fall 2010. [WWD]
More images from Yohji Yamamoto‘s footwear collaboration with Salvatore Ferragamo landed in our inbox this morning, and while we’re looking forward to seeing how they hold up on the runway tonight—not to mention what Yohji will be showing on top of them—we thought they deserved a little solo time in the spotlight. A far cry from the heel-less, but no less gravity-defying, lace-up sparkle boots at Nina Ricci yesterday, Yamamoto and Ferragamo’s kicks are as easy as can be. There’s a molded, second-skin quality to the leather, which rather begs to be pulled on. Ranging from $470 to $1,050, the shoes are, as Yamamoto intended them to be, also a bit “mannish.” Will you slip these supple suckers on when they’re out in July? Or will you opt for something a bit sexier?
