There’s a new trend in town. The bags that match the clothes were seeing in many Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collections, from subtle colour coordinated ensembles at Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli and Chado Ralph Rucci, to full on pattern-on-pattern doubles at Louis Vuitton, Guy Laroche, Carven and Gucci. No longer it’s about shoes and bags, gloves and bags, belts and bag or any particular colour… Now your arm candy requires an identical twin of a dress or vice versa.
Although I can easily picture wearing the monochromatic mixes, I feel that it would take a very stylish girl to pull off the pattern-on-pattern combos. What do you think?
