Two accessories I desperately esteem: the cameo and the Prada bag. But cameos are notoriously tricky to pull off, so yes kudos to Lanvin for slipping the old-school cameo into its Pre-Fall collection in the form of a chunky oversized charm…and mainly kudos to Rihanna and her stylist for bringing the charm back in one fell swoop. While I’m on the topic, Riri’s outfit also reflects other dominant themes for fall that I continue to see: leather clothes and a black and white colour scheme. Constantly championed by one Mr. Karl Lagerfeld, the non-colour scheme is working its way back into the style file and where leather once seemed tacky, it now seems terribly on trend. A black leather shirt and white leather shopper? Perfection.
