The Twitter and Instagram feeds of anyone who remotely follows fashion were inundated with images of Celine’s fur footwear and Chanel’s hula-hoop bag Sept. 30 and Oct. 2 — the respective days of each brand’s spring runway show during Paris Fashion Week.
Social media is not only starting to dictate trends, it also influenced the accessories that buyers purchased for spring, according to retailers from Fivestory, Holt Renfrew and Kirna Zabête. And if consumers bite — which engagement across the social platforms shows is likely — the upcoming season will bring loads of furry feet thanks to Celine; hula-hoop-style bags à la Chanel, and aspiring Playboy Bunny wannabes chez Maison Michel.
