The Six Accessories Designers to Watch This Week


No disrespect to the clothes, but in the same way that sometimes the topping is the most exciting part of the ice cream sundae, a great shoe/bag/bangle can take an otherwise good collection into the realm of electrifying. We've picked out six designers whose skills and sensibilities can more than amplify their clothing counterparts. Lizzy Fortunato's cheerful masses of beads and pendants will be complementing Suno's colorful clothes, while Alejandro Ingelmo's witty and very high heels will be supporting Chris Benz and Elise Overland, and Albertus Swanepoel's sleek classic hats will be on heads at Tommy Hilfiger and Bill Blass, among others.
