One thing that’s fairly surprising about the new collection is that compared to the Z Spoke fall/winter 2012 handbags from the label, the approach is much more dramatic in this collection although one might expect it to be the other way around. Either way, the new looks are perfect for making a statement precisely because of this interesting particularity. It seems that very few things can equal the statement making potential of animal prints and the label confirms the popularity of this idea by including some interesting alternatives that bring these fab elements back into the spotlight.
From a chromatic standpoint, the palette is fairly restricted. It seems, however, that metallic touches are still a viable choice for those who look for a touch of glam for the new season. There are also a multitude of options for those on the other side of the spectrum who want versatile tones and maximum functionality in addition to a classy look. Keeping things fun yet practical is definitely a great strategy for making a purchase you’ll be happy with long after the current fads will be gone.
