After the demanding task of rushing to buy Christmas presents, here’s another important moment for all those who know how to shop strategically, sales. That time of year when you can finally purchase the item of your dreams at a reduced price but also anticipate trends investing in pieces capable to enrich your next season’s wardrobe. What is crucial is to find that perfect balance between timeless elegance and latest trends, in order to be successful on many fronts. This season, for example, colours rule. Starting with pastel hues: baby pink, for example, ideal to soften the appearance of rigid bags, like the one proposed by Bertoni 1949, to illuminate the pearl encrusted ballet pumps by Nicholas Kirkwood, or to give a whole new appeal to classic sunglasses frames like at Oliver Peoples. To avoid the candy effect, you should soften shades with few touches in a most dramatic colour.
Even deep and mysterious blue stood out this season on some of the most stunning accessories with a strong personality. Dries Van Noten chose it as the key nuance for its velvet pumps with contrasting sculptural heel and for the precious silver speckled envelope clutch. Eye-catching pieces that pair well with the linear shapes and metal details of Alain Mikli sunglasses and again Bertoni 1949 bag.
Perfectly bewildering and eccentric, finally, yellow surprises for its charge of positive energy and its ability to look good with any other hue, enlivening it and making it more interesting. Nothing better then that focusing decidedly on a contemporary interpretation of the classic loafers: tapered, block-heel, jeweled and a glossy yellow banana texture, by Coliac Martina Grasselli.
