Some accessories are more than just accessories, they are the essence of the outfit. Here are 3 spring/ summer pieces that are designed to be the star of the wardrobe.

Studies tell us that millennials are likely to spend more money on accessories than luxury apparel. These days, bags, shoes, leather goods and jewellery can be so much more than just an outfit add-on. They are the main event. So creating stylish, on-trend and quality accessories that can appeal to a discerning crowd is essential for fashion industry survival. A good accessory can be enjoyed for years, with a great amount of seasonal use with various outfit choices.

Here are 3 of the hero pieces we’ve selected from our collection:

 

The Embellished Totes

Totes are a wardrobe staple and women from every walk of life will find use for a good tote bag. For the summer season, we will see the playful prints and exciting embellishments being added into the mix. This has been huge on the runways, but not everyone wants to pay designer prices just to get the catwalk look.

Some of the most iconic designer bags of the moment  are the Gucci Sylvie (velvet floral 2018 release), the Gucci GG Bloom, the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Top Handle Bag, the Ashish Black Emotional Baggage Sequin Bag, and the Prada White Rabbit Tote.

Our turquoise sequinned basket bag is a great show-stopper piece that can make an affordable alternative to high street or online shoppers, available to pre-order now.

The Bucket Bag

The classic bucket bag has seen its biggest revival in recent years. The first ever bucket bag was created in 1932 by Louis Vuitton as a way for a woman to transport bottles of champagne, yet it did not become popular as a fashion item until the 1980s. Ever since then, it’s always taken a bit of a back seat, never outselling the tote or the faithful shoulder bag. But when Mansur Gavriel released a leather bucket bag in 2015, it sold out within a matter of hours, becoming the world’s most popular handbag. Mansur Gavriel’s luxury bags continue to be coveted among the fashion crowd today, with high street designs growing in popularity too.
