Accessories: Behind the Scenes

Another peek at some of the Paris designer's spring offerings. Nicholas Kirkwood takes a cue from the east, as Charlotte Olympia heads west.

Alessandra Lanvin gave this Pop Art-colored suede sandal a western touch, a popular mood in Paris, by adding Whipstitching and a delicate fringe.

The Indiens des Plaines exhibition at Musée du quai Branly heavily influenced Aurélie Bidermann’s collection with turquoise and gold “bells” on necklaces that chimed in motion.

In its new store, which was formerly an engraver’s shop in the Palais Royale for centuries, Delvaux is putting its own stamp on this bag that features the Toile de Cuir weaving technique.

Myriam Schaefer introduced a bag style, named after her newly acquired chien, Volpone, featuring a cross-body chain.
Walter Steiger recently relaunched this bag from 30 years ago, the Tambour, exclusively with Dover Street Market and this season expects to wholesale to more stores.

Tabitha Simmons had a studded denim jacket in mind when she designed this group of cork, linen and denim-embellished sandals that referenced the Seventies but was recast in a modern way.

It was a tale of two bags for Khirma Eliazov, who updated her original pouch bag with this large bucket, as well as a stiff, structured tote.
Nicholas Kirkwood had Japanese poster art from the Sixties and Seventies on his mind when designing his latest the-next-is-even-better-than-the-last collection of shoes.

Marie Hélène de Taillac was inspired by David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust persona when designing this season’s lightening bolt and star-laden jewelry, like this smoky quartz choker.

What started as a déchaîné necklace (“broken” as well as “wild and crazy” in French) has grown into a whole series of the deconstructed link motif on cuffs, earrings and more from Annelise Michelson.

Charlotte Olympia’s “It Happened Out West” collection sure did, with spurs, sheriff badges, desert motifs, totems and plenty of pony-skin in another charming series from the Brit designer.
Francesco Russo is forever pushing the technical boundaries of shoe-making in search of pure lines and comfort, this season going sky-high on these satin boots and wave-effect gladiator styles.
