For today’s installment of our Fall 2012 Trends Week, we’re actually bringing you serval trends in one! Calf Hair and Velvet were both all over the accessories on the Fall 2012 runways, and although I was initially tempted to split them up, talking about them together makes more sense. They’re both soft, low-pile materials that have rich visual and tactile texture, and they can both look incredibly expensive when used correctly.
The handbag itself can be a charmingly very simple 50s throwback, so I have little to complain concerning in that regard. Its lines could be a little sharper, but Im fairly positive that thats not whats to blame with the impact that the calf hair is developing.The mixture of slick dark-colored and also the fur basically does not create a luxury appear, and also the placed embossed texture possibly doesnt assist either. Inside the past, when Ive seen calf hair, its generally been put to use in conjunction with multicolored animal print, and also the mixture of textures usually conspires to mask some of the odd velveteen shine that we see here.
