Unique Textures and Legacy Lines Mark the Seasonâ€™s Hottest Trends
Boots of all heights and heels are on the trend list this season, including this striking peep-toe ankle bootie with toggle detail and the signature red sole of luxury French shoe and bag designer Christian Louboutin.
New for fall, Tod’s has reworked its classic D-Styling handbag (in fox fur and calfskin leather; $1,995) with new fabrications, such as this patchwork silver fox leg, handsewn in Italy. The D-Styling is a favorite of Jessica Alba, Nicole Kidman and Hilary Swank.
Old is new this season. Gucci honors its heritage with vintage styles – such as the original diamante print and bamboo handles – in pieces like the ‘Gucci 1973’ small shoulder bag with oval GG and chain strap in military green ostrich (price available upon request).
The “It” bag at Prada this fall is the Yo-Yo bag ($1,640), available in a multitude of colors and various fabrications, including all patent, crocodile, calfskin leather and nylon with patent trim.
JOSE & MARIA BARRERA
Pearls – layered as shown in this necklace by Jose & Maria Barrera ($775 from Neiman Marcus) or alone in a single strand – are the must-have jewelry pieces of the season.
