The magazine, as you know it today, didn't start this way, it actually started as a newspaper and it was called luggage & leathergoods news. it was many years later that the word accessories got added in and the newspaper became a magazine. We've prepared a trip down memory lane on pages 15-17. ll&a has always moved with the changing times. We adapt as needed, we've altered our distribution model, frequency and news coverage to accommodate the ever-changing industry that we serve. Fashion has been for many years an important part of our industry, not only for accessories but also for luggage and business items. We have always strived to bring you the most recent information on trends. in keeping with this goal, we are thrilled to share with you in this issue a wonderful feature with the very well-known Jeanne Beker, who recently returned from the runways in Europe and shared her insights with us on fall 2011 trends. check it out on pages 6-14. For stylish inspiring ideas for those really rainy days, we've prepared our rainwear feature showcasing a wonderful assortment of coats, footwear, umbrellas and hats on pages 24-26. To help with your backpack purchasing decisions, the leader in quality outdoor gear, mountain Equipment co-op, provided us with a wonderful overview on some key issues that are prevalent in choosing a hearty backpack and the ontario chiropractic association gave us some practical carrying/packing tips. see pages 19-22. We welcome your feedback anytime, should you wish to write us, send your comments to info@mediadiversified.com. Have a wonderful spring and enjoy the colourful landscapes of the season.

Eclecticism has been in fashion for some time now, with accessories getting a lot of attention. There are those that are pushing the minimalist edge while others evoke a celebratory feel reminiscent of the 70s spirit. Even though clunky is still in for handbags and shoes, collections are showing sleeker, finer bags too and very understated shoes like the new mule from Chanel. What colours, materials and embellishments are you seeing on accessories? There is a lot of colour for fall: burgundy, crimson red, rust. And a tribal feel is being thrown into some prints and blanket coats. American Indian motifs are making a big comeback. Expect to see plenty of velvet for 3 1 Continued from pg. 6 4 shoes and handbags. These rich warm colours that not only make us feel positive but secure and powerful. Do accessory trends in Canada differ from trends in the United States, europe or Asia? No, not at all. As a society, we may be more conservative, but with so many levels of fashion available to us, the kids on the streets here are every bit as hip as kids on the streets of Hong Kong. International borders have dissipated and fashion has become a universal language. Every day consumers around the globe are digesting the same fashion information, reading all the same magazines and getting the same style message and aspiring to great style, available at every price point. What we are witnessing is the democratization of fashion.

    for spring Continued from pg. 7 1 Have you noticed any fashion accessory trends for work or play? Designers are focussing on fabrication and technology as the final frontier. There is a generous showing of new and innovative rendering of textures. For example, Marc Jacobs is using a wide range of textures, from latex to lace to pony skin fur that has a great sheen. Luxe is big because designers know they are talking to a sophisticated customer. Everyone loves the idea of exotic luxury leathers such as alligator or crocodile - but these are unaffordable for most people. So designers have responded with affordable luxe like faux croc and faux alligator. Luxe bags are getting smaller - though the tote is still holding its own - and I've seen elegant waist bags that let you move about hands free. Bag sizes are also adjusting to smaller mobile electronics but still roomy enough for your iPad and iPhone. Description on pg.10 Continued on pg. 10 1. Jeanne lottie # E715RS. Chiffon handbag.

    accessories corner 5 Continued from pg. 9 Are you seeing different trends emerging for different age categories? Not so much. In fact, women are increasingly dressing to body type and attitude, not chronological age. Older gals sometimes feel less is more but this is no longer necessarily the rule. The trend is all about self- expression - it depends on your spirit and what whimsy you want to subscribe to. Continued on pg. 12 insight insight michique Fuchsia Glamour (medium).
