THIS is your new season accessory download, where dazzling embellishment, traditional craftwork and a seventies palette is about to up your accessories game. A new femininity that swept the runways championed dressing up as the new dressing down. Sportswear has ruled supreme but take note the absence of a trainer style from Phoebe Philo’s Céline catwalk – teenage kicks somehow feel out of touch within autumn/winter 2017’s new grown up mood.

Ground Control To Major Karl: A Supersonic Chanel Show
The glacial white Chanel rocket charging up into the roof of The Grand Palais in France said it all. If the global super brand that is Chanel, has already conquered the world, now they were going intergalactic, en route to the cosmos. This was THE big fashion moment the rained-on fash-pack were waiting for.
A deafening countdown, smoke raging from the sides of the rocket, models posing around the take off, David Bowies’s ’Ground Control to Major Tom’ as the booming soundtrack, and Karl looking more miniature than ever, striding around the edge of the rocket. You half expected that it really was going to take off and crash through the glass roof of the palais, taking Chanel into outer space.
Fashion has had a long enduring love-hate relationship with the humble belt. The accessory has come and gone with each season and the styles have varied: from the studded, low-slung boho belt à la Sienna Miller in the noughties, to the slim Western-buckle styles of last year. But what is the belt du jour for 2017? Well, think super long and super impractical…
Championed by the likes of Rihanna, Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner, the super long belt is coming in strong for fashion’s favourite accessory of the year. The belt style – mainly worn tied around a coat or jacket to cinch in the waist – comes with an exaggerated length which is best worn flapping loose around the knees. Yep, we’re talking KNEE length, in some cases.
