Accessories designers are making a statement for spring: Less is more. Clean lines and pale hues offer a fresh approach to spring shoes and bags. At Cesare Paciotti, for example, a selection of retro-inspired shoes were shown in various styles ranging from round-toed stilettos to chunky-heeled sandals. The collection focused on shape rather than the heavy embellishment of past seasons. Wedges were done up in two-toned patent leather, while satin peep-toed pumps were offered in colors such as violet and blue.

Vivia Ferragamo showed a selection of sexy shoes and bags ranging from colorful and ornate to pretty and subdued. Among the highlights were a selection of white canvas heels and flats detailed with pastel python trim.

Bally's spring collection featured bags and shoes that were both girly and grown-up. Simple heels were detailed with leather flowers, while structured bags were shown in shiny yellow and green lizard. One standout was a colorful patchwork bag punctuated by an oversized yellow flower.

Furla's spring collection, inspired by the Mediterranean, was a showcase of relaxed femininity. Strappy sandals and ballet flats were detailed with piping and bows, while the bags ranged from slouchy and hobo-esque to structured and ladylike. The color palette, from sandy browns to pale blues, was soft and subdued with a few pops of bright color added to the mix in the form of graphic-print canvas bags.
