With the long-awaited arrival of spring finally here, discerning fashionistas can look forward to revamping their collections to inject a welcome seasonal flourish. To help get you started, we’ve curated a selection of sophisticated spring accessories to add an unmistakable flair to any occasion.
For nearly five years now, the luxury German accessories company Montblanc has released an annual collection in honour of oriental culture. This year, the brand celebrates Eastern beliefs through three limited-edition pens – The Rat Limited Edition 512, which pays homage to the zodiac animal of the year, and the Vermillion Dragon Edition 8 and the Vermillion Dragon Edition 88, with both featuring stunning carvings of the mythological creature. The collection also comes complete with a glass bottle of golden colour ink and a notebook in gold Saffiano leather.
For this Spring 2020 season, the high-end luxury travel and lifestyle accessories brand Tumi has focused on creativity and practicality in its line of bags and suitcases. Combining luxury and innovation, TUMI’s new seasonal offerings also include the 19 Degree Aluminum collection available in two colors – blush and bright lime. With the corners curved in perfect angle, these travel cases are both functional and stylish.
The European luxury house Byredo has perennially committed itself to producing the best in fashion and this is more than evident in its latest leather collection. By using a variety of different leathers in the collection, the brand effortlessly showcases its take on classic craftsmanship. A high point here is the Blueprint Bag, made of contrasting calfskin and lambskin and complete with silver or gold brass hardware straps. Available in a range of colours, including black, white, blue, yellow and more, the bag comes in two sizes – mini and medium.
The German manufacturer Leica Camera AG has launched three new takes on its range of M lenses. These include the APO-Summicron-M 75 f/2 ASPH in silver, which is perfect for clicking portraits, and the limited-editions Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH and APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH in olive green. With markings in red and white on these olive-green lenses and red and black on the anodised silver lens, good clarity is said to be ensured in every item.
