:: Spotlight :: Luxe Accessories launches 'Lettere D'Amore Summer collection

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

July 2006 marked the launch of Luxe Accessories’ new Summer collection, Lettere D’Amore (Love Letters). Melbourne's most fashionable braved the icy Melbourne winter, turning up to Mars Gallery in Port Melbourne for a peek into the trends for Summer.2006/2007.

This season, bags are lot more structured. Detailed with feminine ruffles and bows, classic clutches and everyday totes stand out in sun-kissed vintage leather, perfect for adding that finishing touch to any outfit. Splashes of citrus, salsa and corn flour blue add colour to the mainly neutral palette of oatmeal, nougat, mocha and honey, while embellishment comes in the form of leather quilting, beading and rouching.

This Summer is all about the ‘pendant’. In heavy sterling silver, they hang low in various stylish designs including the bow, locket, stallion, bambi, palm leaf, key and ball. The selected range of apparel mimics the detailing of the accessories, with soft flowing skirts, frills and girlie bows. Dresses are teamed with waisted belts, highlighting another dominant look for the season.

From head to toe, the collection is romantic and playful. Delicate sandals and comfortable wedges carry through day to night, while sharp stiletto heels feature on all of the Italian-inspired shoes.

The Luxe Accessories Lettere D’Amore Collection is now available at the Brighton Flagship store, and in August for over 50 leading independent retailers nationally.

Prices range between $149 - $299 for bags, $89 - $149 for shoes, $89 - $200 for jewellery and $60 - $110 for belts. The apparel range is priced between $90 for tops, right through to $199 for dresses.
