I’ve already wrapped up our street style and SS 2016 accessories forecast report for New York on and off the runway…. However; I really couldn’t get enough of street style this season, so I decided to conclude my accessories inspiration extravaganza with some of my favorite looks as shot by the lovely Hannan Saleh, for us at Sarara Couture.  I think a blogazine like this one, needs to showcase how individuals interpret and wear jewelry, hats, bags, shoes, rings and beyond.

Why do we wear accessories? What role do they play in our daily lives. For some of us we have a fear of them and how to wear them, for others they are part of the dialogue that makes us who we are. I am one who feels naked without them.  Accessories are truly part of our material culture- physical objects that offer clues about our cultures and ideologies. They speak to our roles in society, beliefs, gender and status…. I think as the international fashion week scene wrap up and Paris begins and ends there is still a bit more room for a little New York inspiration.  This city offers a panorama of visual stimulus and messages through accessories.  Hannan has a great eye for those moments, so enjoy a curated look at my personal favorite NYFW street style highlights from SS 2016. These are the things I would wear, inspire from and adore regardless of the trends.  All below images were shot by Hannan- so let’s discuss-

Every fashion week brings thousands in the business and beyond to New York to partake in the newest collections being presented, however what many have come to particularly love is the street style. In my case, mostly for the accessories…. This is where we see vintage and contemporary pieces merge into a plethora of individual styles that somehow culminate, at the end into a forecast of the trends to come. A panorama of colors and sizes inspired this season. We shot outside on the New York streets before the shows with the help of Rachel.  In the streets the crowds were colorful and clearly drawing in part from a 1980s and 90s aesthetic, yet they had a modern approach. There was a sort of similar urban street influence on the runway at various shows, as well as a romantic flowing vibe at others.  I saw lots of denim on the street and inside.

 

The runway brought a continuation of 1970s bohemian influenced jewelry as well as punk, 80s plastics, oversized earrings and beyond. Whether you would actually wear the Libertine accessories or not they definitely were vibrant and fun to watch. I think the fashion gods that be, are a little evasive when admitting its an 80s extravaganza out there. Keep in mind when accessorizing in term of the runway, we can really pick and pull out those items like the 80s inspired Libertine plastic chain shoes and run with one element we love. So, without further ado:

 

THE STREETS:

Sunnies: clearly an important accessory for next summer and now, they were all over in interesting sizes and shapes.  Big rounded examples seem to be the big winners.
