Accessories are the most important part of any outfit. If your jewelry game is not on point, the ensemble can look dull and boring. That is why every single fashion guru should know all the latest accessory trends. This winter will be all about oversized things that are striking and noticeable. Starting with dramatic sunglasses, huge bags, and fun hats, you’ll have plenty to choose from. Take a look at the standout designs you’ll definitely want to add to this season’s attire.
No outfit is finished without statement accessories. Even if your clothes are totally on point, you are still missing one of the most important details- a bag. The Spring 2019 collections at New York Fashion Week brought so many bold designs, that you will have a hard time choosing a single one.
Stuart Weitzman is one of those brands that never disappoint with their campaigns. Each season we get overly excited to see their super-innovative ads that are literally out of this world. So far, the label has tapped so many iconic faces, and every season gets even better. For Fall 2018, Stuart Weitzman’s creative director Giovanni Morelli decided to collaborate with two of the top modeling names of all times. Gisele Bundchen and Doutzen Kroes are the stars who front the official fall campaign.
After tapping Tippi Hedren, aged 88 for the luxury Le Marché des Merveilles, Gucci Ouroboros and GG Running jewelry collections, the label has now decided to collaborate with another iconic face. Faye Dunaway is the latest epic Hollywood actress to be featured in a Gucci ad. Luxury labels are making it a habit to include ladies of any age in their campaigns. And these end up being the coolest, fiercest, most popular pieces of advertisement. Faye is joined by the French singer/songwriter/actress Soko, who portrays her daughter.
Kim Kardashian‘s oldest daughter with rapper Kanye West, North West made her first official modeling debut. Being a Kardashian’s daughter sure comes with some advantages. The five-year-old style icon skipped castings and working with small brands and is making her debut with nothing less than a Fendi campaign. North is no stranger to the cameras. She is often captured by paparazzi when hanging out with her famous family and appears in their reality show. However, this is her first modeling gig and maybe the start of a successful career.
Alessandro Michele of Gucci is continuously collaborating with talented artists. If you take a look at the brand’s Instagram you’ll see that Gucci’s recent campaigns are literally a piece of art. Digital painter Ignasi Monreal has a series of collaborations with Gucci from the surreal Spring 2018 campaign to the limited edition capsule #GucciHallucinations. The designer again teamed up with a group of talented artists for the newest Gucci DIY collection. Thanks to the Italian fashion house customers will once again have a chance to buy wearable art.
The cool names that are part of this project include Coco Capitan (the same artist that created the infamous Gucci “Common sense is not that common” t-shirt), Ignasi Monreal who has been working with Gucci for few years now, Angelica Hicks, Soko (the coolest French chic around who is also known for her unique music), William Ndatila, Trevor Andrew, Unskilled Worker, Jayde Fish, Phannapast, Adrian Kozakiewicz, Alex Merry and Amanda Charchian. Gucci first introduced the DIY Program about 2 years ago where customers were able to customize their own Dionysus bag with patches, embroidery, hardware, and trims. The details customers could add included Gucci’s recognizable bumblebees, butterflies, lizards roses, peonies, dragonflies, and snakes. Monogramming was offered with Swarovski crystals in a range of colors. The Ophidia totes and Ace sneakers can still be personalized with letters in a range of colors and materials. You could check all the options for customizing on the brand’s website.
The latest Gucci DIY collection allowed the 12 contributors to get creative with Gucci’s Ophidia tote and Ace sneakers and come up with their signature versions of these iconic styles. According to the fashion house the final designs ” connect their artistic style and individuality to the customizable #GucciOphidia tote and #GucciAce sneakers.” The artists included their initials on these recognizable Gucci pieces and presented their recreations through vibrant illustrations and innovative shots. Gucci is focused on Instagram campaigns lately that get a lot of attention. Phannapast, Unskilled Worker, and Ignasi Monreal came up with some of the most explosive illustrations for this campaign. In fact, all of the artists made sure to put together eye-catching materials that people won’t be able to miss while scrolling through their feed.
According to the brand “The project embodies the philosophy of Gucci DIY: championing the idea of self-expression.” The new Gucci DIY collection is available for purchase on the fashion house’s website.

Coach is about to have another exciting collaborative collection with Disney. This time the fashion brand decided to explore the dark side of the Disney stories. The good old fairy tales that you love ever since early childhood are about to get an edgy twist. If you can’t imagine Snow White having a dark side, Coach’s Stuart Vevers certainly can for the sake of a killer collab.
“It was fun to explore the darker side of these stories and mix Disney’s nostalgic charm with Coach’s creativity to bring my memories from these fairy tales to life within our world of accessories and ready-to-wear. The Disney spirit truly reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach,’ Vevers said in a statement.
The Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale collection combines Disney’s stories with gothic elements. The collab includes everything from jackets and dresses to bags, wallets, and sneakers. Among the Disney references in the collection, there are iconographies from “Sleeping Beauty” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” These two Disney princesses are finally showing off their edgy side for Coach. Forget about Aurora’s and Snow White’s dreamy frocks, they are all about rock-n-roll in the Disney x Coach collection.
So, how could these lovely Disney stories possibly go dark? Let’s start with the most obvious elements. If there is one of the dwarfs who deserves a place in this Coach collection, that must be Grumpy. You can see his name written on bags alongside fun patches including his grumpy-looking eyes. However, he is not the only dwarf who managed to score a high-fashion gig. Stuart Vevers also tapped Happy, Sneezy, and Sleepy for his Disney x Coach collection. Snow White and Aurora are too good to have a dark side, but their stories do. You can spot the poisoned apple on many of the designs as well as the mystic castle from “Sleeping Beauty.”
Selena Gomez will probably be one of the first to put her hands on the Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale collection. The star is Coach’s most powerful brand ambassador. On the first Monday in May, at the Met Gala, she stepped out wearing a dreamy gown designed by Coach’s Stuart Vevers. Selena is also working on her first clothing collection with the brand that will launch this fall. While you are waiting to score Gomez-approved designer pieces, you can shop the Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale collection starting from May 14. The collection will be available both online and in stores.
