To take a ‘break from bling’ you have plenty of art motif touches in fashion and accessories. And they are all the rage this season for those wanting to display their eclectic taste and preference!
To set the evening’s tempo, Temperley London at Saks Fifth Avenue has a silkish, full-sleeved, midnight blue dress with self-motif, a centre split, a long shrug and a jeweled butterfly brooch on the waist to peg the look.
Valentino’s butterfly-adorned clutch is a fluttering sensation bringing alive the beauty of spring that’s designed to ensure your heart for art gets noticed (if that’s really your aim). Meanwhile Dior has its cute and perky Lady Dior creation in white topped by a small and smart handle, flaunting artistically sketched blooms and hitting all the right accents. A piece to pass on (to posterity)…
Tory Burch at Bloomingdales has all the lucky motifs from every culture across the world, on its soft, rectangular, zipped clutch right from four-leafed clovers (Irish), horseshoe (English), the Celtic cross, dragonflies (Chinese), hearts, ladybirds (Russian), the mystic eye (Middle East) and lots more.
For those with a penchant for indigenous art like Mexican, Peruvian or Aboriginal, a brick red leather bag beckons you from Paula Cademartori at Saks Fifth Avenue, highlighted by yellow ochre and muted pink touches.
For that perfect Parisian flair (with a pair of sunglasses a la Audrey Hepburn or Loren) go for Emilio Pucci’s scarf with an eight-pointed star in cheerful pink and green hues or for Gucci’s more autumnal delight.
Footwear is one of the ideal ways to indicate you’re really in the flow of things. And lined up just for you is a whole list of names from Dolce & Gabbana’s delicate sandals which bring alive the beauty of the Normandy countryside, Nicholas Kirkwood at Harvey Nichols with its floral, peep-toe and lace-up heels, Hermes’ geometric art maroon design, Gianvito Rossi’s fan- motif stilettos, a nautical piece by CH or Marc by Marc Jacobs’ black and white doggy (or kitty).
What more can a girl ask for? It’s all out there awaiting your mere indulgence. All you need to do is splurge!
