Milan’s Accessories Bring Back the Swinging Sixties


If Milan's accessories were summed up in a single word, that word would be Lucite. Plastic is in, people, and it's hard to miss. From the embellished Lucite shoes at Prada to the rectangular Lucite clutches at Fendi, the stuff is shinier than ever. The sixties were also back with mod-inspired shoes at Versace and pop-art clutches at Emporio Armani. Not everyone followed suit, however: Jil Sander, never one to follow trends, trotted out two-pronged metal heels that were a different and fresh approach to the season's shoes. Is it overdramatic of us to declare that this is a true reinvention of the heel? Perhaps — but decide for yourself with our Milan accessories roundup.
