I recently saw a photo of a girl sporting a canvas bag emblazoned ‘I refuse to take part in the recession’. And to be honest, she might be kicking off a trend here. With many luxury brands seeing rising sales recently, dare we, nay, can we say we are nearly over it? Like a bad boyfriend, can we finally stop fretting it might return?! I hope so anyway, because, and I don’t think I am alone here; I am DONE with the minimalist look already. Bored, bored, bored.
Lets face it, indulgence is fun, and it might be time to start taking style tips from the likes of Ab Fab’s Patsy once again. Mock if you will, but if you look closely, 90s nostalgia is already creeping its way back in to our jewellery boxes – giant door knocker earrings anyone? Massive look at me cocktail rings sweetie?! – and it’s only a matter of time before it hits the catwalks running (Italians, you are exempt from this, as clearly you don’t give a damn and I love you for it). So dust off the lurex, shine up the gold, and let’s bring the ‘Lacroix look’ back darling!
