We’re now midway through London Fashion Week,and most designers are keeping it autumn-classic in the accessories department, with a color palette full of earthy blues, greens, and khakis, and the easily visible abundance of leather, python, and crocodile accents. Anya Hindmarch channeled the Eighties with her Pac-Man inspired collection, filled with bags of all types- from clutches to backpacks. Most were made in leather, crocodile, and snakeskin materials in camel, grey, and deep burgundy hues, each detailed with repeating star or square patterns perfectly fitting in with her video game themed runway. Burberry incorporated mostly compact, handheld bags with a thick, belt-like strap,and using very similar materials. Each piece featured a variety of color, most containing shades of brown, olive green, and yellow. Straps were finished with oversized buckles and metal embellishments, coinciding with a very military influenced collection.
Mulberry‘s Johnny Coca aimed to show looks depicting women that he had seen on the streets on London. The brand’s biggest money-maker, their bags, were truly a staple in the show. They were structured, with color blocking detail, chain and leather straps, and tones of green, navy, and beige python. Vivienne Westwood Red Label fits well into this group, inspired by Renaissance artists Donatello and El Greco, and also showing structured bags in beige and deep blue.
