This summer, the sunglasses of the “fifties” will match with the “seventies’” handbags for a multicolored set.
Dior suggests its glasses “Dior Summerset”, in a rounded shape inspired by the fifties styling with colorful striped sides (plum-colored/blue) and tortoiseshell temples. They are also branched off in a pilot version with metal temples.
But if you want to dazzle, chose the Chanel sunglasses: bright colors with orange, red, lemon-yellow or flashy blue frames, with of course the “double C “Chanel signature.
Because summer heralds pastel’s back, Gucci on its side brings out sunglasses with pastel lenses and frames (pink, apple green, yellow or blue). A good reason to bring a small acid hint to your dress.
Chloé is reconsidering the pastel pink with its purse Sally in blended-python and granulated calf leather. To be combined with the pastel sunglasses Gucci for a “total look”.
Gucci honors also the python with its seventies’ shoulder bags. Multicolored purses and colorful shopping bags in nylon and leather edging (available in red, blue, yellow or purple).
We fall for the Balenciaga model “Papier A4”, lemon-yellow or pink and its matched clutch bags that will perfectly fit with the Chanel “flashy” sunglasses.
For the multicolored handbags, we go to Dolce&Gabbana and Longchamp. Dolce&Gabbana draws again the famous satchel purse by adding multicolored embroidered cloth. La Maison Longchamp, her, goes into partnership with Mary Kantrazou to develop a shopping bags’ line fashioned from digitized pictures, with drawing inspired from the Asian and Occidental world.
