PARIS — A panoply of creations from across a jam-packed week of accessories presentations here captured a collective desire from designers — in these doomsday times — to channel optimism through their collections.
Myriad moods were at play; among the headlining trends were graphic colorblocking, bags at Delvaux and Byredo, sandals at Hermès and Pierre Hardy and vivid hues — with yellow as a surprise hit. Beckoning long summer days was a haute-craft, back-to-nature vibe with a focus on summery wovens like raffia from brands including Robert Clergerie and Aperlai. At the other extreme, an appetite for bejeweled creations included Olgana Paris’ glitzy updates on its signature Amazon sandal, and colored mules with detachable crystal ankle cuffs that double as bracelets. The label’s high profile followers include Bella Hadid and Rihanna.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

“We are obsessed with Fendi and we want to share this obsession,” said CEO Serge Brunschwig to WWD. @Fendi will be releasing a new capsule collection Oct. 16 centered around the Fendi/Fila logo created by Instagram artist @Hey_reilly. Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
