I love the PVC fashion trend. Transparent PVC accessories bare all, leave nothing to the imagination and captivate onlookers. Suitable for skinnies only, PVC clothing is risky on even the perfect body - it sticks to your skin and if you sweat, it's gonna show (gross)! PVC transparent bags however, are the easier choice for this trend.
PVC, also referred to as shiny vinyl can be produced in any shade and is not necessarily transparent. Often confused with patent leather, this synthetic material has high fashion potential, but be careful, it can look kinda trashy if not donned properly. Here's a few designer PVC accessories for inspiration..
This black and gold-tone Dolce & Gabbana Gomma + Ricamo PVC Bag (available at Farfetch) is perfect! AND I WANT IT! The black PVC cage design has pom pom embellishments and a gold-tone D&G logo plaque on the front. Stripped down to the bare vinyl cage, this handbag reminds me of vintage plastic shopping totes, but of course the D&G design is high fashion and probably not meant to hold groceries!
I have respect for anyone who dares to wear transparent shoes. They look insanely uncomfortable and don't most feet sweat - I just imagine my feet sliding around (eww). KKW dons transparent shoes often and makes it look effortless (there must be a secret). These Yeezy Season 8 PVC Pointed Pumps (available at Farfetch) are simple and modern.
These graphite-gray semi-transparent pumps have a soft branded insole and three small holes along the side for ventilation (brilliant). These high-heeled shoes are gorgeous and blend nicely with the modern, monochromatic fashion theme.
I'm a huge fan of printed clothing and accessories, especially if the message is meaningful. This MM6 Maison Margiela Charity Capsule Shopper Tote (available at Farfetch) is one of many pieces in the latest charity capsule collection in support of the French charity Aides. Mason Margiela is a long-time supporter of the non-profit organization. 25 years ago these words appeared on t-shirts; THERE IS MORE ACTION TO BE DONE TO FIGHT AIDS THAN WEAR THIS T-SHIRT BUT IT'S A GOOD START". The t-shirt has been reinvented every year and this season, the important message appears on garments, cuffs, bags and the classic t-shirt.
This Junya Watanabe Comes des Garçons PVC Tote (available at MyTheresa) has a PVC lining and removable drawstring canvas pouch. This tote is perfect for anyone that prefers to keep their handbag essentials a secret. The vinyl tote has JWCDG printed on the front and the canvas pouch dons Junya Watanabe Comes des Garçons. This tote is simple, neutral and perfect for summer.
The Boyy Deon PVC Belt Bag (available at MyTheresa) is fun fashion! The contemporary PVC bag design is cute-chic. This PVC belt bag has leather trim, an adjustable strap and dons the signature ring detail. This bag is perfect for festival season.
The Mason Michel Julianne PVC Bucket Hat (available at Farfetch) features a transparent, croc-embossed pattern and logo plaque. This hat is the perfect high-fashion accessory to keep your hairstyle intact while you go about your day in less than desirable weather. The oversized brim will keep the rain off your hair and face. I have to have this innovative PVC hat!
