Here’s how to wear sorbet hues, the fashion set’s flavour of the month

With the dawn of summer comes a considered re-introduction of bolder, brighter hues, beginning with our accessories of choice. Offering a subtle, tonal touch, super-sweet bags in soft pastels and faded shades make a statement in their own way. Absolutely darling for any festive affairs, and not out of place at any beach-side occasion, the colour of the moment is truly sorbet.

Consider, for instance, a buttery yellow ode to the briefcase courtesy of Prada for the final remaining days spent in the office, or Loewe’s lilac-toned Flamenco clutch for those on-the-fly plans synonymous with summery nights. And of course Balenciaga’s Le Cagole, in all its perennial hues, is perhaps the most perfect example of sorbet colours imbued just right. Ultimately, however you choose to embrace the pastel bag trend, it’s a thoughtful addition that will make the coming months all the brighter.
