This season's street style trends were all about accessories, from mirrored handbags and inflated sunglasses that exhibit fashion's current desire to have fun after years of crisis. There were also viral items like MSCHF's big red boots, that were announced only last week, but — true to their fashion-minded nature — attendees took them out for a spin, puzzling onlookers and insiders alike. And, of course, soon-to-be trendy handbags from emerging brands like Puppets and Puppets, and Pipatchara.
