The past year has given us our fair share of fashion moments, from the elegance renaissance (as defined by Claudia Croft) to Jennifer Lopez closing Versace’s sizzling SS20 runway. And no conversation about 2019 is complete without paying lip service to its great accessories – those key bags, shoes, brands and jewels that will lay the foundations for a stylish year to come. Let the countdown commence!
Bags For Life
A great day bag is a lifelong companion. Practical, sophisticated and, above all, dependable – the kind of plus one you want to take home to meet your parents. Bolster your 2020 arsenal with this seasonless selection of brands and star buys.
1 Loewe. Look out for its latticed leather Puzzle bag in-store as part of our Loewe pop-up in Luxury Accessories, Ground Floor – the largest selection of Loewe accessories in the world.
2 Bottega Veneta. Daniel Lee can do no wrong in our eyes.
3&4 Hermès. A bright silk scarf and a classic Constance bag are a match made in accessories heaven.
5 Gabriela Hearst. New to Harrods this season, the New York designer is the doyenne of intelligent sophistication.
9&10 Jimmy Choo. Cometh the new logo, cometh the influx of lust-worthy accessories! Jimmy Choo’s 'JC' monogram is contemporary and considered – making for a chic-as-can-be focal point for bags and boots alike.
'Tis the season to fill your boots. In every sense. Step forth into 2020 with our pick of the finest pairs.
11 Gucci. Choice fringing ups the ante of an otherwise-classic silhouette.
12 The Row. Bourgeoise by name, bourgeoisie by nature. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen cater to our cravings for poise and polish.
13 Proenza Schouler. Crafted in Italy with smooth suede and a chunky caterpillar sole, these Chelsea boots stand one foot in heritage and the other in the here and now.
14&15 Alessandra Rich. Boasting the kind of unapologetic glamour that would make Alexis Colby swoon, Rich's blingy bijoux is the glittering finish your partywear deserves. For ultimate impact, partner her bauble-like earrings with a suitably shimmering choker.
If you’re of the Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel school of thinking – the designer advocated removing one accessory every time you leave the house – look to a striking party pump to serve solo drama in every ensemble.
18 Neous. Architectural heels and a nod to fine art put this brand on a very chic footing.
19 Prada. Call us the devil, because we’re wearing all Prada everything this party season.
20 Midnight 00. Influencer extraordinaire Ada Kokosar brings her eye for style to our feet for 2020. Consider us well and truly influenced.
There’s more in-store: Luxury Accessories, Ground Floor; Womenswear, First Floor; Shoe Heaven, Fifth Floor.
