In fashion’s increasingly fast paced environment, styles that offer both the customer a mix of fashion and function are increasingly important. Fall/Winter 2017-18 accessories focus on the reinvention of classic styles through fresh directional elements.
Today, we invite Trendstop’s team of experts to bring us the essential accessories for Fall 2017-18. Be inspired by the key bag, eyewear, jewellery and soft accessories silhouettes and discover the pieces that will enhance your next collection.
Oversized bags have statement appeal as simple constructions allow for experimentation with a wealth of fabrics and finishes. For eyewear, retro favourites are revived with angular profiles and new finishing techniques that bring innovation to a popular style. Soft accessories focus on XXL proportions and tactile materials that can be applied across multiple product categories to combat the winter chill while the continuing utility trend sees the introduction of industrial motifs into the fine jewellery arena.
Trend takeaway: Winter accessories are all about combining directional fashion with functional wearability.
Bags - The Shopper Sack
Relaxed sack-like shoppers feature voluminous proportions that fuse statement sizes with roomy practicality. Tactile materials soften geometric constructions as fabrications and finishes become essential in allowing the shopper shape to transcend the trends. Simplified silhouettes are elevated through the use of formal or party appropriate finishes while lightweight synthetics tap into the athleisure trend.
Trend takeaway: Simplified silhouettes offer increased options for trend-led fabrication and finish development.
