SOFTLY SCULPTED

 

"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance": what better illustration of this Coco Chanel quote than the Softly Sculpted trend? This season has seen handbags return to a minimalist chic, full of femininity with a slightly draped design. Daniel Lee kicked off the trend at Bottega Veneta with "The Pouch", a sleek model with a few decorative gathers. From that point on, crumpled bags were spotted on the arms of the most stylish women on the planet. Loewe has opted for a subtle approach with his delicate "Flamenco" clutch, while Nanushka offers a more sophisticated version with "Anja", and Alexander Wang is content to bring a touch of fantasy with his "Scrunchie" bag. The trend is making a foray into footwear too, like with Rejina Pyo's "Erin" boots where a few well-placed gathers offer even more character and style. The season is shaping up as one of softness and lightness thanks to these pretty structured accessories.
