This Spring/Summer, it’s all about the statement piece; that pair of shoes, handbag or piece of clothing that will instantly turn an everyday look into an exceptional one and give your wardrobe an injection of on-trend newness. After seasons of pared back minimalism and relative austerity, designers are having fun with fashion again, experimenting with colour, shape, texture and opulence. Try layering, mixing prints or going a size or two up to create a different silhouette – or if you’re feeling less brave, choose one piece that will become the focal point of your outfit, building around it with luxury basics.
