New York Fashion Week is almost here, and two accessories firms — Anya Hindmarch and Celestina — are getting a jump-start on the action. At Hindmarch's presentation on Tuesday, she delivered a polished collection that was inspired, she said, by her mother in the Seventies, with colorblocking, geometric lines, rich fabrics and lots of textures — most notably a sueded corduroy.
The evening before, Celestina Ocampo showed a lineup that channeled the Filipino tribal craftsmen who produce her bags. Tattoo-like designs similar to those on the backs of the artisans were burnt into wood minaudières to beautiful effect. Crocodile and Mongolian lambswool day bags were also new additions to the season, as well as fox and Mongolian lambswool vests and wraps. Next on the horizon for Ocampo is a collaboration she just inked with fellow luxury brand Leiber for a onetime joint collection.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
