This week, FashionUnited readers get an exclusive look at three key accessories pieces for the SS19 season. Trims and detailing elements are elevated through exaggerated fashion-forward fringing in The Excessive Fringe Bag while The Statement Sun Hat sees a summer staple make a statement with extreme XXL silhouettes. Beaten Metal Forms sees the long running utility trend become more refined for SS19 jewellery as industrial pieces are softened by handcrafting techniques and subtle lustre.
Bags - The Excessive Fringe Bag
Bag silhouettes are elevated to statement status with a focus on directional detailing. Fringe trims go extreme, featuring longer lengths or densely packed, ultra-fine strands that adorn bag seam or cover bodies for an all-over effect while primary hues add a pop of colour to laser cut leathers.
Hats - The Statement Sun Hat
The classic straw sun hat is scaled-up for SS19 with XXL proportions and super-wide brims. Shallow, structured crowns enhance exaggerated, floppy brims that curve and fold about the head. Neat, tight weaves and finished edges bring a formal feel to previously casual high summer headgear.
Jewellery - Beaten Metal Forms
Handcrafting techniques are given a modernist twist as large scale, contemporary forms are rendered in beaten and hammered metals. Foil-like folds and raw cut edges introduce an industrial edge to muted silver and gold tones is softly brushed finishes.
