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.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
