In the competition to rule the runway, Aigner’s fall / winter 2014 accessories narrowly won out over the clothes. That’s no criticism of the clothes in so much a compliment to the accessories, which were simply the thing that left the most lasting impression. Who could see past the Deco-esque white marble and metal chokers, belt buckles, and harnesses? Or the armour-like hand jewellery, worn over gloves like the modern woman’s gauntlet?
The femininity of the clothing made the sternness of the accessories all the more arresting. Duchesse silk was reworked into tailored ensembles of abstract patterns and soft colours; buttery leather had its sensuality enhanced even further by sheer panels. But everywhere the accessories were key, whether it was the structured classic handbags, belt-purses and clutches, or the jewellery. Those, you couldn’t ignore.
