Playing it cuteWeekend Glitz | Elaine Chung and Katie Hung 19 Jul 2019
Flip through the latest catalogs from high-fashion brands and you will see plenty of playful leather goods going on stage this season.
Cuteness seems to be a collective selling point embraced by big names - from Tod's and Louis Vuitton to Loewe - with amusing designs for key chains, wallets and pouches to trendy micro bags and mini bags.
Newly launched micro bags and leather charms from Tod's are shaped like sea creatures. Circular metallic eyes make the shark, whale and clownfish leather mini bags come to life. The lobster and clownfish key chains made of leather in original colors are so true to life.
Loyal fans of Loewe's signature elephant accessories would fall for Paula's Ibiza summer special as the prints have taken on a tropical look. Pair them with bi-colored insect leather key chains.
The variety of lavish leather playthings will make your eyes pop out of your head. Louis Vuitton has redefined luxury with a Monogram Giant volleyball decorated with monograms in different tones and a mix of leather and canvas.
Meanwhile, Berluti has a wooden beach racket set. The rackets with lamb leather grips come in a flourescent yellow fabric pouch with classic Venezia leather details for easy carrying.
