So you’re all dressed, but there’s something missing – that perfect accessory that says Summer 2010. There are some standout specimens this season, destined to go down in fashion history. Get one, or get them all: these accessories are serious must-haves.
Alexander Wang is everyone’s darling, including sunglass empress Linda Farrow. He’s doing a line that will be sold at Opening Ceremony, and they are tweaked out classics with attitude. My favorites are the wayfarer style zipper frame. He also does a kitschy cool version of a cat-eye frame even Julie Newmar would die for, available at www.openingceremony.us
Got the time? Then get yourself an LTD watch. Featured in the Beyonce/Gaga extravaganzas ‘Video Phone’ and ‘Telephone’, they’ve also popped onto the wrist of UK rapper Dizzee Rascal. UK-based LTD’s colorful – and limited edition – watches are becoming the Swatches of the noughties. Find them at www.ltdwatch.com.
Fresh kicks never felt this fly before! The one and only Christian Louboutin has created a sneaker that satisfies those that love dope beats and guitar licks. The leather, classically styled high top is covered with prickly little punk rock studs, and Pharell Williams has already been spotted wearing them. The sneaker comes in black or white, and costs a smooth $1200. And yes, the soles are CL’s signature red: www.christianlouboutin.com.
