Stylish shoes and handbags for the autumn fashion week season, from Fendi’s sustainably crafted Baguette messenger bag to Celine’s street-chic CT-03 sneakers
The fashion world is in full bloom in September as international fashion weeks return and stylistas show off head-turning streetwear. From trainers to handbags, here are some of our favourite staples to get ready for the upcoming fashion extravaganza.
Fishing nets and Fendi? No, we’re not talking about hosiery, but the Italian house’s new Baguette messenger bag crafted from fibres regenerated from fishing nets, carpet flooring and other nylon consumer waste products.
Other than its new square shape, the Baguette’s stand-out feature is its lightness, from the use of padded nylon.
There are everyday black and blue versions, as well as one in the iconic Fendi yellow, which can be worn on the shoulder or cross-body. We love the monochromatic hardware too, which has been painted to match the rest of the bag, whatever colour you choose. Offered in large and medium sizes, the Baguette makes a handy and stylish travel companion.
Inspired by the brand’s seasonal show themes of pumped-up volume and distortion, the new boot has exaggerated proportions and adds a masculine edge to any look.
The wedge boot is an avant-garde hybridisation of the moccasin and signature Loewe sock detail that we’ve seen in both men’s and women’s footwear. The sock detail is a little more pronounced than in footwear from previous seasons, made with a smooth calfskin that contrasts with the croc-embossed leather on the moccasin shape.
Although the CT-03 is a very functional basketball shoe, with flexibility, comfort and perspiration control achieved through the mesh-lined tongue, perforations and textile lining, it’s also unmistakably a luxury brand shoe. The calfskin trainers are clearly identified by the large embossed “Celine” at the back, on the tongue, on the “scratch” or strap, as well as debossed on the outside of the rubber outsole.
- It’s not too late to hop on the chunky shoe trend like K-pop idol Hyuna – Loewe’s new wedge loafer boot adds a masculine edge to any outfit
- Like Gucci and Prada, Fendi used econyl nylon recycled from plastics for its new bag, while Celine’s Hedi Slimane drew on Los Angeles 80s and 90s streetwear
