A Clear Forecast For Fall Accessories

May 17, 2012 8:39 am

With the exception of Cinderella, Lucite and Perspex shoes used to be associated with exotic dancers. But in the past few seasons, clear accessories have lost their lowbrow associations. During NYFW, we noticed oversize vinyl clutches at 3.1 Phillip Lim and were transfixed by Rodarte’s footwear with sand art stripes decorating the Plexiglas platforms. Karl Lagerfeld, too, is lately making a case for the transparent trend. At the Chanel Cruise presentation earlier this week in Versailles, he styled his models with plastic cross-body bags and matching cuff bracelets, while on the Chanel Fall runway, every look came paired with geode-inspired d’Orsay pumps featuring see-through cylinder heels. And PVC isn’t just for the runways. Charlotte Dellal is frequently spotted carrying one of her crystalline clutches, and during the shows, Tommy Ton snapped Shala Monroque dodging the rain in an embellished Prada bucket hat from Spring 2010.
