Current Trends

  • Headbands! “Miuccia Prada showed 50 gloriously exaggerated headbands with every one of her SS19 runway looks – studded, beribboned, sumptuous satin and leather – proving not only hero-buy status but also, signaling a big move in the hair adornment game.” Vogue

  • Over-sized raffia fringed totes! Feathers, feathers everywhere. The XXL Tote: “It’s big, really big, almost parachute big; which when full, thrown over your shoulder is akin to a work out.” — Vogue

  • “The rise of craft couture in ready-to-wear has resulted in a similar movement in accessories. Macramé bags, from Altuzarra’s shell-studded version to Giorgio Armani’s brightly colored duos, are all over the catwalks, with shoes and belts following suit.” — Vogue

  • 2019 is all about being BOLD. This could mean anything from your color choice, mixing vintage and modern pieces, choose graphic pieces, or simply just being bold enough to choose what you love.” — Chelsea Reale + Diana Rice of SISSY & MARLEY
