If your wardrobe includes plenty of warm neutral colours such as brown and khaki, Hermes’ accessories for the season will make perfect complements. Opt for leather goods in shades of orange and red, or if your sartorial leanings tend towards the fl amboyant, tie on a dual-faced scarf.

Trite but true: When you feel good, you look good. And that’s why we like the way Bottega Veneta has played with texture for their latest designs. The house’s tactile intrecciato weave decorates a roomy duffel bag, and even serves as a design accent on the top rim of its sunglasses.

03: ARTSY ACCENTS
No contest – Salvatore Ferragamo’s lace-ups are the most fun footwear of the season. A tribute to the late pop artist Andy Warhol, the leather shoes feature a coloured fur lining and of course, perfectly placed paint splatters. Covered with graphic motifs, the brand’s other accessories make artistic statements of their own as well.

04: QUIET COMPLEXITY
Proving that bright colours aren’t necessary when it comes to making a bold statement, these designs arrest attention with their sheer details: Leather gloves feature an elaborate perforated design, while sneakers are covered in lush velvet.

Menswear classics take on a decidedly unusual tone in Louis Vuitton’s latest accessory collection. Sneakers, for instance, are decked out with an abstract camoufl age print, while classic brogues stand out thanks to an unusual perforated pattern.
