London’s got all that London cool, New York is, well, New York, Paris is the home of haute couture and a guaranteed tick on the beauty trends forecasting list but Milan fashion week is the one to really keep an eye on for all next year’s accessories.
And it hasn’t disappointed for SS13. From face-fronted bags at Prada, double-heeled perspex shoes at Fendi and jewel-encrusted sun visors at Marni (bear with me here), there’s been a lot to like coming down the runways.
I’ve had a goo on Instagram and via the filter of the world’s fashion press and insiders, put together a gallery of what we – and they – are trend-spotting for summer 2014. Drop a comment below and let me know the ones you love and loathe.

I suspect these Dolce and Gabbana shoes come alive at night and snicker at all the cheap shit in your wardrobe.
