Accessory of the day: Christian Cowan's AW19 watch-embellished everything
Time for some bling
While some say that Christian Cowan's AW19 show had all the makings of a parody—from the sheer tights that reveal skimpy thongs beneath to the garish, theatrical makeup on the models, it didn't come from a directionless stance. Inspired by influencers and the #extra culture that's pervasive on social media, the collection's accessories were worth double (even triple) takes.
Last season's wristwatch sandals in collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti now come in shocking yellow and neon pink hues, and the same watch motif echoed throughout. We're talking chokers, neck accessories, headgear, fingerless gloves, waist-cinching belts, and even *drum rolls* a watch-embellished full bodysuit that had us wondering how the model managed to saunter down the runway. While this trend will ensure that you will never lose track of the time, let's just say that even the most daring of us will only have enough guts to opt for those eye-catching heeled sandals.
