Get Carried Away!

Accessories with bags of style

The only thing to pack this summer is a bag full of attitude. Give your timeless classics (the Birkin, the Kelly, and that chic vintage satchel) a well-earned holiday, and grab an ultra-glam tote. For serious swagger, team with baroque heels and you’ve clinched the high-impact accessory trend that’s taking over the streets of Paris and London. Melanie Galea (thestreetmuse.it) zoomed in on our pick of the “all eyes on me” look:

A feathered Fendi tote in sunshine yellow and royal blue, plus a navy Bulgari bag complete with lustrous “dragon scales”, were snapped in London, the capital of cool. Across the English Channel in Paris, the boulevards got a whole lot sparklier when Melanie spotted a kaleidoscopically fringed Azzura Gronchi bag partnering Gedebe’s sensational glitter-bomb stilettos, complete with crystal toe embellishments. It wasn’t long before the Jardin des Tuileries served up this arresting, crystal-studded, Perspex minaudière (if you’ve nothing to hide, why not?). Then along stepped a pair of dazzling Fendi strappies—an ultra-stylish contrast with a wool maxi. And just when we had decided that things couldn’t get any brighter, Dior raised the sparkle game with an eye-popping, crystal-blitzed design. Finally, proving that you don’t have to go over the rainbow to make a statement, Roger Vivier’s shoulder bag introduced star quality in bold monochrome.

We challenge you not to find something that catches your eye in this edit!
