Leg-wear Socks, knee-length socks and over-knees play a fundamental role together with the new trouser-lengths and skirt silhouettes. Some of the new looks in the dresses and skirts segment only become plausible with matching socks and stockings. Shoes are modernized only by using the right socks and stockings, thereby attracting the desired attention. Patterned panties turn into a modern leggings replacement. jewelry It is a rich and elaborate jewelry season where we see crystals, pearls and irregular shaped gemstones coming together in a fresh and inviting `Baroque inspired` way. Where multi-wrap beaded bracelets are piled one on top of another, odd shaped rings create a `semi`-tribal statement and brooches make a come-back. Cornaline and turquoise are the perfect gemstone accompaniment to gold.

ACCESSORIES – WOMEN Belts Belts play a fundamental role as accessories for the styling of all looks. The range of widths and materials varies accordingly. Worth mentioning are over-long belts, which are additionally knotted at the waist, extremely narrow belts as a contrast to large-volume coats, dresses and rock silhouettes, or extremely wide belts as an accent for clear and architectonic shapes. Important again both for decorative and functional purposes: Mix metal with coloured leather on double wrap options. Add a neat little bow to give a girlie twist to an otherwise masculine ensemble. For the most part, think slim and trim, but wide still works best for extreme waist cinching solutions.

Gloves Gloves are styled to match different looks and draw the eyes towards the hands. They are worn in over-long styles to jackets with shortened sleeves or as fingerless gloves or mittens with rustic outdoor layerings. The typical materials used are knits with patterns and soft leather in modern colours. Give gloves a makeover by crocheting, adding jewelled embellishments, using new sporty perforated fabrics in new lengths or pairing back with ergo fingerless fits. Butter soft leather and suede longer length options add glamour. Don´t forget bright coloured (fake) for mittens.

Women’s wear melancholy, mystical, provocative The designer creations are rebellious and unadjusted, reaping influence on the one hand from Gothic culture and on the other from punks and arts.
