“Sixties silhouettes and accessories were a major takeaway trend from the spring summer catwalks; from Prada’s satin Alice bands to Rejina Pyo’s printed neck scarves to Miu Miu’s knee socks. The most versatile of all were Kate Spade’s colour-pop patent sandals, which will look as good with a preppy A-line skirt as they will with your vintage wash Levis.”
