This season, the accessory world is turning to geometric influences with none other than the humble circle as the headliner.
Bags and all manners of jewellery are going otherworldly with orb-like and half-moon motifs. I’m a big fan of the circular trend as it’s both bold yet delicate due to its soft shape.
If you’re feeling a little like a square peg in this round new world, let me point to a few accessories that will have you speaking in circles in no time!
THE LUXE BAG
Mansur Gavriel’s Circle Bag: Because if it’s good enough for Solange, it’s good enough for us, right?
THE CULT BAG
Gaia’s Ark Bag: Yes, it’s a half-circle, and yes it’s ubiquitous on Instagram. I definitely feel like it’s more of a summer bag, which makes this Melbourne winter all the more depressing.
THE FESTIVAL BAG
Tambourine wicker bag: This has been a hit in Seoul and it’s not really associated with one particular brand. Like the Ark, it’s also one for warmer weather.
THE CLASSIC GOLD
By NYE: These earrings have gorgeous assertive lines, yet are small enough not to dominate your look.
THE PARTY BLING
Ada Hodgson’s sterling silver beauties are simple enough to pair with any look and provides enough impact to carry an evening look.
