It’s a topic that always matters. WWD polled 18 top multibrand retailers for their current bestsellers across accessory categories. As expected, function proved paramount.
Comfort and sensibility continue to be a draw for shoe shoppers. Flats dominated the footwear results, with Alexander McQueen’s Leather Skull Charm flats and Sequin Skull smoking slippers going strong at Lane Crawford, and Sam Edelman’s Aster loafer performing at Bloomingdale’s. Moto boots also remain a fall staple, with Jimmy Choo’s Biker boots making both Net-a-porter’s and Tokyo’s Isetan’s lists. Chic sneakers, like Balenciaga’s Resille Low Trainers and Isabel Marant’s Bekket high-tops, are also gaining traction.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
