Cat Eye Curves

Spring Summer 2018 Key Accessories Trends

Classic cat eye silhouettes are reworked with oval shapes and rounded edges, creating a more curvaceous form. Sharp winged corners and blunt edges are rounded off for a softer take on retro styles enhanced by fine wire and frameless constructions.

Crystalline Coral

Spring Summer 2018 Key Accessories Trends

Glittering crystals reference the coral reef as gemstone shards and layered paillettes come in translucent oceanic tones. Jewel encrusted neckpieces and pendants inset with giant faceted onyx cabochons accented with glittering diamonds are shaped like sea flowers and anemones.

The Oversized Cuddle Cluth

Spring Summer 2018 Key Accessories Trends

Oversized clutch bags are soft enough to cuddle up to as XXL proportions are finished in super spongy and tactile fabrications. Supple leathers and velveteen napped suede create unstructured malleable forms, moulding pillow-like to the body for a comfortable carrying style.
