Resort Accessories 2011: Milan

Missoni has a new fan in me! Yesterday it was resort fashions, and today, fabulous accessories. I've always liked their designs, but none so much as what we're seeing for the seasons ahead. I think that I'm most taken with their shoe designs.....the mesh sandal with purple trim is to-die-for! And those bags, the drawstring and hobo bags look as though they are tye-dyed, but as I look closer it's actually a print. It appears that they're taking the brand in a new direction with the addition of bold versus the more neutral prints. I'm also lovin Gucci's take on the lace-up sandal and the glittery, black ankle strap. Ever the classic, they are a luxury constant whose designs are always appealing.
