Parfois has become the reference brand for many a European woman, particularly the neo-traditional and trendy subcategory of the female sex who wants the best value for her money while enjoying her shopping experience greatly in a pleasing and dynamic environment. The latest Parfois spring/summer 2015 collection seems to center around black and leather and larger slightly pulled into cat-eye sunglasses, as well as lots of suede and snakeskin accessories. Wide-brimmed hats also sneak into the line-up, while colorful stones make up the neck adornments worn across the collection.
Bags, accessories, shoes and all things fashionable for women galore! The Portuguese women’s accessories brand is known for its jewelry, wallets, sunglasses, belts, scarves, watches and all types of little knickknacks that come in handy when dressing up an outfit. Opened up in 1994, the brand officially has over 280 shops in the world.
Large leather handbags seem to be inspired by green palms on the beach, making them the perfect beach bag as well. Stylish and practical, they look amazing when coupled with other accessories in the same green coloring. We see stripes in black and white placed over a coral colored leather bottom, while also bearing in mind that our beach bags can easily also be made out of a knit designs that pairs a cream color with coral pink. The black and white stripes appear quite often across the Parfois spring/summer 2015 collection, either encompassing the whole of the handbag or merely adding an accent to more neutral coloring. We have woven tribal designs with fringes set against a black background, as well as colorful tasselled pieces. Pretty embroidery against nude leather is an alternative to the black or white versions available with the drawstring design.
The spring/ summer 2015 jewelry trends we see in the Parfois spring/summer 2015 collection include multiple adornments on a single hand in the form of bracelets. There are bangles, simple beadings, chained designs and larger stones, all pulled together to have a collection of 5-10 different bracelets creating a nice wrist-brace. Metal link watches are the preferred versions to telling time, while the necklaces are stringy and full of stones, polished or not. They range from more sophisticated neutral toned pieces to funkier tribal versions in a kaleidoscope of colors. Beading is also a common trend, both in necklaces and bracelets, with some of them adorned with gilded chains as well. Earrings are common and showy, really sticking out and presenting themselves to the world. Armlets also make an appearance, as well as interesting pieces that are worn on the back with the chains crossing over in the front. Large chain links also appear around the neck.
Leather shoes in black, flat but with a touch of platform to protect the feet, this part in white, are part of the Parfois spring/summer 2015 collection. We also have sandals in black leather, some straps around the heel and stones across the top. Pretty little dancer shoes with ankle straps and barely-there heels make the cut and look rather amazing with the more colorful beadings in the jewellery pieces, while colorful snakeskin becomes one of the bands holding more casual flat sandals in place. Of course, not all the shoes are flat, with at least one style utilizing a chunkier black here with white leather straps in a rather attractive combination.
