Talent Management Trend Alert: Fruity Accessories

Stella McCartney Summer 2011
Stella McCartney Summer 2011

The models here at Talent Management have a little bit of an obsession with all things fruity on the fashion scene right now; whether we’re after a new bag, earrings, or shoes, bananas, cherries and oranges are the way forward this season!

Designers from Sabrina Dehoff to Charlotte Olympia to Prada are getting the models here in the mood for spring with their fruity take on accessorising.

So, as Miuccia Prada declared backstage at her fruit-patterned spring/summer 2011 catwalk show, “It’s time to be bold”.

Go ahead and add a touch of playfulness to your look with our top three fruit-inspired accessories…

Prada banana earrings, £140

We think ultra-trendy Miuccia Prada became the leader in this fruity movement when she began wearing those now famous banana earrings at the close of her spring/summer 2011 show. Matching the fruit-patterned prints that dominated the collection, Miuccia has since convinced almost everyone in fashion that bananas, and even monkeys, truly can be sophisticated.

Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ bag, £735

If bananas seem a little too bananas for you, we can always rely on Stella McCartney for a more feminine take on a trend – this time its in the form of citrus fruits. McCartney has utilised oranges, lemons and limes in prints for her collection. So, for a truly ‘Stella summer’, check out the bags in the range to brighten up any outfit.

Kenneth Jay Lane Polished Apple Necklace, £80

We can’t decide whether this is kitsch or retro – either way, the girls at Talent Management are loving this oh-so-cute enamel and gold-plated apple necklace, designed by the man who single-handedly made costume jewellery cool. With a crystal encrusted bite, wear this for a glamorous and fruity take on the 50s Rockabilly look.
