Your family’s old tapestries that once embarrassed you are now making their way onto your favorite shoe and handbag.
Dries Van Noten epitomizes the idea of a sexy shoe by complementing the tapestry-print with a snakeskin heel and sole. Who says beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Beauty reigns with Giambattista Valli’s geranium stone clutch and Giorgio Armani’s jeweled-embroidered clutch. Giving the otherwise romantically-themed trend an edgy twist, Emilio Pucci, Marni, and Vera Wang adorn their bags with chain-links and leather handles. So, never disregard the value of historic pieces—no matter how far-fetched you think it might be. It could very well end up in your closet. At least, let’s hope so!
