UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON Accessories and Shoes Collection Fall/Winter 2009/2010Big and medium-sized bags make a comeback.
Soft, round-edged, rich in pleats, darts, pockets and depth; fabrics and genuine or faux leathers are smooth, often soft and highly treated: animal-marking-printed, pvc-film coated.
Even when bags want to be “clutched”, handles tend to be longer so they can always be “shouldered”.
The season will open in lapis blue, forest green, amethyst purple, chestnut and a very chic orangey-red. Later, there will also be burgundy, pale blue and pink teamed with grey. Among the leading styles: the inverted-pleat bags that widen through movement or when set down, the cavallino-effect two-tone pastel fabric box bags, and the reversible, “two in one” cloth and leather sacks.
Shoes and boots know no half-measures and divide equally into ultra-high or totally flat heels. Two worlds meet and merge in upper shapes: consistently round-toed in soft, matt suede or shiny to patent leather.
Colours are classic and more: green, purple and turquoise. The latest trend for his footwear is antiqued leather for lace-ups and loafers, and toes almost polished even when the upper is of velvety suede.
As always, a rich and range of accessories and small leather goods, too good to be missed.
