Carmen Miranda would be giddy with spring’s latest trend: bright, colorful, witty fruit designs. Bananas and cherries were especially popular motifs. Charlotte Olympia, queen of the cheeky motif, paid homage to the Luso-Brazilian songstress with these multifruit platform shoes. Gedebe designer Giuseppe Della Badia printed python with a banana motif and continued the theme in the beading along his clutch’s clasp, while Kate Spade New York creative director Deborah Lloyd referenced all things Morocco, fashioning a hard-case straw shoulder bag in the shape of an orange; Mercedes Salazar offered an iron and iraca apple bag. Edie Parker, meanwhile, showed acrylic key chains as cherries and orange slices. Fruit cocktail, anyone?
Joseph Altuzarra’s runway featured lemons and cherries all over, including this black leather pump; Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia created a vintage-style case bag inspired by a watermelon; Tomasini’s suede bag took the shape of a pineapple; Edie Parker offered acrylic key chains like this banana; Mercedes Salazar showed acrylic cherry and watermelon earrings, and cherries dotted Christian Louboutin’s calf and patent leather heel.
