Which accessory did you love most this year? We take a look at the five accessories that made an impact.
The Ankle Boot
The perspex heel was surely the only heel that mattered in 2015. It all started with Dior’s ubiquitous grey-lavender patent ankle boot for autumn/winter 2015 with its pretty-in-pink translucent heel. Maison Margiela, Roberto Cavalli and Vionnet also tapped into the icy sheerness of a transparent heel to announce winter’s arrival. A clear cut 2015 favourite.
The backpack’s revival has continued apace in the hands of Nicolas Ghesquière, who upped the ante in the Louis Vuitton Cruise collection with this practical and effortlessly nonchalant version, the Palm Springs Backpack. With its industrial leather straps and classic monogram we can think of no better accompaniment for weekend getaways come the new year.
The Fur Slipper
There’s been only one way to keep your toes stylishly warm this season and it comes courtesy of Alessandro Michele’s outrageously fluffy fur slipper in every one of its iterations (we’re particular fans of the fur-lined open-backed loafer). Any excuse to take the comfort of indoors to the street, Gucci-style.
Whether it’s the suede calfskin Hudson with its perkily bohemian tassle, or the sweetly curved Drew bag, it’s been Chloé’s year when it comes to must-have bags. Seen on every editor, model and fashion conscious celebrity from Dree Hemingway to Poppy Delevingne, long may its reign continue.
Instantly adding a sense of drama to the most innocent of outfits, the over-the-knee boot is firmly back in the fashion mainstream. Executed with a hint of Victoriana at Altuzarra in a covetable lace-up style, the versions offered by Isabel Marant, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen proved equally captivating.
