4 MUST-PACK ACCESSORIES FOR MEN’S FASHION MONTHSHOP MEN'S ACCESSORIES
With the holidays behind us and the new year ahead, Men’s Fashion Month comes at a perfect time for a fresh new perspective on menswear. Whether you’re in the mood for colorful looks like those seen on the spring runway at Burberry, or want to stick to more traditional looks like Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2015 suiting, we’ve collected a roundup of key looks with an accessories focus in anticipation of four weeks of men’s fashion. Read on for your packing list for London, Milan, Pitti Uomo and Paris.
Sleek Suede Shoes
Whether patterned or in a subtle palette, suede footwear is the right direction for travel. To kick off your stylish adventures in London, try colorblocked high-tops by Christian Louboutin or for a more refine appeal at Pitti Uomo, lace up with Acne Studios loafers.
Silk Scarves and Ties
For a dapper touch, especially if you’re heading to the men’s runways of Paris, turn to sophisticated silk pieces. From Tom Ford’s quirky bow tie to Hermès’ traditional scarf, silk accessories prove especially versatile for day-to-night transition.
Timekeeping is essential to make your flights and never miss a show in Milan. For a luxe take on the practical traveler’s essential, try Van Cleef & Arpels’ timeless pocket watch or Rolex’s steel Thunderbird Datejust.
Subtle, no-fuss detailing, low-profile luxury and a focus on function — what’s not to love about the unsung hero of minimal accessories, the understated bag? Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato telegraphs the brand’s motto “When your own initials are enough,” and Louis Vuitton’s Damier Keepall is the perfect size for jet-setting.
