The fashion month spring/summer 2023 collections were packed with the finest items from designers who showed off their creative talents on the runway. This creativity doesn’t end with the show’s curated ambience or the impactful clothing; additional vibe setters like beauty looks, casting, and styling all play a role in how the designer’s collection will be perceived. If we learned anything from the firestorm of news surrounding Fendi‘s surprise baguette bag relaunch at New York Fashion Week with Sarah Jessica Parker, it’s that launching strong accessories on the runway draws attention to a collection and gives it staying power. Ahead, ten of the unmissable accessories from fashion month spring/summer 2023.
Moschino FW22 Womenswear Collection | New York Fashion Week
Moschino‘s Autumn/Winter 2022 collection was a materialist love letter to well-appointed homes and the accoutrements of wealth, with accessories ranging from lampshade hats to champagne ice bucket bags. The collection was filled with larger-than-life accessories that are perfect for people with a penchant for statement pieces. Two standout accessories from the collection were the gilded chandeliers and cutlery-shaped earrings that were styled together on the runway (pictured above).
LOEWE ss23 womenswear collection | Paris fashion week
Loewe‘s creative director, JW Anderson, has made a name for himself designing boundary-pushing women’s shoes and did not disappoint with the brand’s spring/summer 2023 collection. Models were walking on air in these balloon-covered heels.
Fendi ss23 | new york fashion week
Fendi made waves during NYFW when it relaunched its baguette bag with the help of Sarah Jessica Parker. The Y2K sequined style baguette bag was fitting, considering SJP’s stint during the early aughts as Carrie Bradshaw. The perennially fashionable television character wore Fendi’s baguette bags throughout SATC and now we can carry a piece of it with us too.
Puma SS23 | New York Fashion Week
Puma‘s Spring/Summer 2023 collection was as innovative as it was bold. The activewear brand pushed boundaries launching its first-ever metaverse experience alongside its physical show, which featured eye-catching accessories like the stacked hat pictured above.
Sinead O’Dwyer SS23 | London Fashion Week
Sinead O’Dwyer’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection featured colourful, skin-hugging apparel styled with silver jewellery and fuzzy chokers. Earrings, necklaces, and belly chains featuring metal symbols decorated all of the looks; their density contrasting against the porous design of the cut-out clothes.
Paul & Joe SS23 | London Fashion Week
Paul & Joe delivered cottagecore fantasy at its spring/summer 2023 show during Paris Fashion Week. The designer accessorised their looks to push this visual narrative further, styling models in their gingham headscarves and flowery top hats.
Balenciaga SS23 | Paris Fashion Week
Balenciaga‘s creative director, Demna, balanced spirited subversion with luxury fashion codes by playing with proportions in the French fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection. Oversized pouch bags, like the one pictured above, managed to stand out during the buzz and excitement of the brand’s Paris Fashion Week show.
Victoria Beckham SS23 | Paris Fashion Week
Another win for pouch bags at Victoria Beckham‘s Paris Fashion Week show (a first for the British designer). The fringe-filled pouch bags are an instant mood boost and an obvious styling choice for spring and summer next year.
Etro SS23 | Milan Fashion Week
Nothing says, “give me space,” quite like the printed bucket hats in Etro’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection. The oversized element of the accessory is a style tip we’ll be taking off the runway for our own spring and summer looks next year.
Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood SS23 | Paris Fashion Week
The experimental headwear at Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood is one of the can’t-miss fashion accessories to come off the runway during fashion month. Not only do these sculptural items extend our perception of headwear, but they also remind us of the artistic talent embedded into every fashion week collection.
Masha Popova SS23 | London Fashion Week
With their multicoloured yet muted pattern, these unique boots in Masha Popova’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection are an instantly eye-catching item. They’re a strong match for people with subversive yet fashion-forward styles, and we can’t wait to see them photographed in celebrity street-style shots next spring and summer.
