From Chanel to Versace, here are all of our favourite ways accessories were worked into designers’ Autumn/Winter collections for 2019, from New York to Paris.
Chanel also signed the pact in France
When it comes to presenting their new season collections, designers are meticulous about every single detail from head to toe. And one of those details we’ve been obsessing over while watching the Autumn/Winter 2019 shows unfold is range of stunning hair accessories that were worked into the overall looks.
From perfectly-tied bows and colourful motif clips to jewel-adorned Alice bands that added a touch of glamour, the accessories of choice were vast. What they did have in common however was that each design was far from childish, despite the common association. Instead, they were chic and worn with subtle, office-appropriate outfits just as much as the final touch to glamourous evening wear.
For Chanel, hair guru Sam Mcknight swept back the top half of models’ hair and pinned it in place with range of clips and bows. For Balmain, Sam also worked hair accessories into the look, this time playing into Olivier Rousteing’s vision of the Balmain woman who has an attitude, but also has softer side. He captured this by taking a girlish Alice band, and toughening it up with a chain.
Stella Jean teamed up with Boccadamo to grace models with an opulent pearl halo headband, while Versace used vibrant sliders to inject a playful element into to looks.
