The Ohne Titel Spring 09 fashion show was one of our favorites from New York Fashion Week, and the woven pieces in the collection we can't seem to get out of our minds. From home decor to fashion accessories we found quite a few woven items that could get us through the Fall. Here are some of our favorites.
When we talk transitional, we're talking cardigans, skirts, boots, and lightweight knits. We're also talking pieces that make your outfit pop. Throw on all of the above and cinch them with something exciting, like this Elaborate Vintage 1980s Woven Cord Belt With Gold Medallion Detail ($44). It will cinch you into the holidays and beyond . . .
I forever love multiwoven styles. That's why this Maloles Doctor Bag ($328, originally $655) stood out to me. I like the embroidery and the blue turn lock, but I'm not loving the shape of the satchel. Something is just off here. What's your take?
Nicolas Ghesquière's Spring '08 collection for Balenciaga wasn't all too wearable but it was all together stunning. One of the trends that blossomed from that show were the multicolored weave footwear. Nicole Richie already got her feet on the boots, so let's also get in on the hot trend with these Spring/Summer-ready Sigerson Morrison T-Strap Woven Sandals ($425). They have the same black-and-white woven motif but they're much more comfortable. Oh, and considerably less pricey . . . $978 less to be exact!
I have always been drawn to the weave. I think it's my lifelong adoration for Bottega Veneta (see amazing Spring wedge at left) and its luxurious woven leathers. Because Bottega has been around for so long, many copy cats have chimed in on the earthy motif. On shoes, this style is ideal — it's interesting, cool and slightly '70s — right up my alley.
The Loeffler Randall for Target collection has hit the racks. Now through March 28, replenish your wardrobe with feminine handbags and shoes. Currently up for grabs are 12 handbags and eight kinds of flats; I'm crushing on this Loeffler Randall Woven Cream Clutch ($20). I have a fondness for anything woven, and $20!
Bottega Veneta is known for its intricately woven bags. Too bad it's also known for its steep prices, which go for $1000 and up. Even though this Bottega Veneta Metallic Knotted Clutch is on sale ($5,159, originally $7,700), it's still crazy expensive. It's beautiful, elegant, and will surpass time and trends. Now only if there were a cheaper but still well-made option. Wait, there is!
