Zipper detailed accessories add an edgy dose of ’80s punk to handbags and shoes this season. Add a slash of Sid Vicious inspiration with this fun trend for summer. Look for zippers that add an embellishment that is not purely functional. The zipper frill sandal by Pour la Victoire’s zipper “flower” is pure over-the-top whimsy. We also love the bold zippers and crystal zipper pulls by Christian Louboutin. Wear these zipper accessories with a pair of destroyed jeans and oversized Alexander Wang tank.
