More is more. That’s the mantra behind this S/S ’18 edition of our Accessories Issue, because it’s what brands seem to be going by when it comes to bags, shoes and jewellery now. It’s not just the sheer number of styles being produced and sold, giving millennial customers what they want most: options. Designers’ imaginations have gone into overdrive, resulting in never-before-seen – at times offbeat – pieces that cut through and stand out amid today’s sensorial overload. Some are clever; some less so but still fascinating. All are necessary for making it in the social media-influenced fashion jungle. To start off: the items across the next six pages that’ll make you go, “Is that a…?”
Children’s novelty trinket or some truly girlie jewellery?
