Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
It can be easy to push accessories to the side for bigger things, but during Milan Fashion Week, we saw an offering of some Fall/Winter 2018 pieces that can easily (and have already) become the main event. Below are few that we just can’t live without.
Much more than a collection of shoes and accessories, Valextra presents its new new line in conjunction with its annual installation in Milan—a magical, visual dreamland. This year’s Valextra collection is displayed on the raw planks of cedar and mirrored surfaces by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, and amongst Italian artist El Gato Chimney’s art. The collection of minimally luxurious shoes and bags, in conjunction with the installation, gives people a multisensory experience.
Sergio Rossi creates a new chapter with the “sr Milano” collection. The collection—comprised of pumps, sling-backs, boots, booties, and sabots—features a squared heel with a mirrored metal plate. Not only are the shoes sophisticated and subtle (like the women and architecture of Milan, to which the line pays tribute), but also due to the smart ventosa heel on each. While the line stays true to the brand’s identity (devoted to tradition, craftsmanship, and history), the collection also brings a new and exciting punchy attitude to the Sergio Rossi name.
The new Jimmy Choo collection is full of delicate details like pearls, unlined shearling, and Moiré silk, gracing a palette of blushes, blacks, and gold. “This season, I feel it is time for fashion to rediscover exquisiteness,” said creative director, Sandra Choi. “With Jimmy Choo’s glamorous heritage in mind, I wanted the collection to embrace an alluring beauty with contemporary freshness.” And with designs reminiscent of illustrator Erté’s lyrical alphabet, styles like the Samantha micro-heeled mule and the studded pearl inlayed Hanah combat inspired boot do just that.
