Frieze 2010 fashion part two: accessories

Lead shoes

Amanda’s favourite shoes spotted at Frieze Art Fair

Continuing our fashion trend spotting at Frieze this year, here’s what was happening with accessories…

Decorative tights. Patterned, brightly coloured, striped and lace details all livened up legs at Frieze. It was a good look when teamed with biker or heeled shoe boots and we really loved the simple stripe details on sheers. We liked the light touch of lace detail on sheer too, but weren’t too sure about the lace ones mixed with the leopard print heels however, each to their own…..might work better with printed ballet flats, if you were thinking of repeating this at home…

Wild. There are always a few wild looks, things we sort of quite admire but fall short of wanting to emulate ourselves. The super high hooker boots might be a look best left in Vegas (specially when teamed with a short ra-ra skirt, as this one was) however much they might have cost and we might have worn the Vivienne Westwood shoe boots without the multi textured socks…..And school grey socks with scruffy riding boots? We’re all for whacky but maybe the boots could have done with a polish to pull the look off.Frieze boots 2

Handbags. As we mentioned on the previous post, handbags were simple and bling-less (is that a word?) but still looked as if they had cost as much as the art. Loved the big black leather and canvas one worn with the pretty rick-rack skirt. Also note the great paint-splash effect jeans worn with the orange Celine (we think?) bag…I feel the need for a brightly coloured handbag coming on.
