In recent years of ups and downs in the fashion industry, accessories have often guaranteed the success of business and stirred up the desires of aficionados all over the world. Especially shoes and bags are considered to be the pivotal elements in order to achieve the perfect look.
The epitome of such research can be spotted during Fashion Weeks all over the world, when professionals, journalist, bloggers, influencers and curious passer-by are ready to shot and share pictures not only on catwalks, but also in the streets of the capitals of fashion.
And what about watches?
It was pretty evident in Milan, when the “circus of fashion” (as Suzy Menkes loves to say) was going to catwalks and presentation, proudly showing classic watches, often in gold, both for men and women.
They’ve been the perfect match to tattoos, wooden bracelets, cheap and colorful bags, but also to classic leather accessories every woman dreams in her wardrobe. Some occasional plastic or digital watch was also sighted, usually in pop outfits, but also in traditional and sartorial looks.
