Match results: this season’s accessories are a refined reflection of the runways
Fashion’s top accessory designers didn’t venture far from home for the inspiration for their A/W15 handbags, which directly mirrored the wares on their runways.
Chanel’s embroidered mosaic 2.55 bag was an exact match of Karl Lagerfeld’s similarly pixelated wrap skirt, while Hedi Slimane’s lipstick motif leapt onto Saint Laurent’s chain sac. Ditto for Prada’s coordinating Safano leather bowling bag and Cire duster coat, as Raf Simons’ abstract animal print also appeared on Dior’s patchwork bag.
Don’t be afraid to match, as in identically; the total look is back.
