Plastic Fantastic

Manolo Blahnik SS12

Jil Sander SS12
Fashion designers have chosen to use clear plastics with leathers to create accessories this Spring . Last summer the hit bag of the season was Jil Sander's orange plastic market bag. This spring, the label has stepped the style up a notch by repeating it in a beautiful and practical half plastic/half leather version. But it's the shoes that really embrace this new trend. Manolo Blahnik, who is firmly back on the fashionista's must have radar,  has included a pair of pointy plastic and silver leather courts (with just the right heel height) in his latest collection. Marc Jacobs and Richard Nicoll went on the same tip for spring featuring cowboy style ankle boots in clear, hard-wearing acetates. While Erdem and Chloe chose to show summer sandals with slashes of plastic.
