Texture, texture, texture. Designers can’t get enough of fun, breezy bags and accessories that scream summer, from straw and raffia to fisherman netting, fringe and raw canvas.
This summer’s bikini mantra: More is more. Designers couldn’t get enough of look-at-me styles — from bright hues, bows, side ties and more.
