Spring Ahead | A Sneak Peek into Hot Accessories for Spring 2015

Today we’re jumping far ahead to Spring 2015 to highlight some of our favorite accessories and accessory brands whose pieces we’re looking forward to seeing. Whether you’re looking for your next hot handbag or small accessories to add the perfect finishing touch to your look, you’d do well to begin your search with Glass Handbags, Pono Jewelry, Anne Touraine, Joanna Maxham, and Suzi Roher. Below are a few of our favorite pieces from each collection.

Glass Handbags

The Glass Handbag is a new step forward in merging technology with the modern woman’s request for style in a package. Its “brilliantly” crafted with an inbuilt soft-glow light to illuminate the contents in the night. All you style-craving ladies reading this will love the range (satchels, clutches, shoulder bags, cross-body) shapes (tear drop, diamond, tote) and textures (croco, lamb skin, vegan, ruby, emerald, gold dust and Mustard pebble). Check out www.glasshandbag.com for more information.

PONO Jewelry

Pono by Joan Goodman has delivered on its promise of quality, design and consciousness once again with some stunning pieces. Resin, horn, crystal and shell are some of the materials she uses. If you like bold, swirling necklaces that catch the eye, PONO has laid out an amazing selection. We love the mix of patterns and colors, and how deceptively light they are.

Anne Touraine Scarves

Even if you thought that you had a great scarf collection, you’ll be excused for not knowing how much Anne Touraine loves her collection and all the knowledge that goes with it. Ladies, she’s got a book that shows how many different ways there are to tie a scarf. You can get sassy, elegant, discrete, naughty or even get super creative and tie it to your shoes to spice up your look. Her twill silk scarves have a distinct stamp of generosity woven with style. Prints are rich with detail or eye catching abstractions.

Joanna Maxham

If you have a well defined way about your life and tolerate no fluff, then Joanna Maxham’s handbag collection adds chic substance to your lifestyle, with no side effects. We find her purses, satchels, and clutches as being very precise in their design, as well as modern, yet classic in their silhouettes and color palette.

Suzi Roher

Suzi Roher’s factory is in Canada where they are made under her careful eye. We stumbled upon her scarves and belts, which were very trendy to say the least. We were awed by her jazzy scarf prints, which included images of Campbell’s chicken soup, vintage photographs, and book images. Her marriage of technology into her accessories with timepieces showcased on belts left an distinct impression with us. Authentic in her expression, we find her wild at heart designs very inspiring for daily use.
