Power Accessories for Spring 2007 are all about shine … leathers, plastics, molten metals. Pour it on and go boldly where basic black has abdicated a spot! Enter the drama and shine of WL’s power statement in bags, shoes, bangles and belts. Do not shy away from solid silver, platinum, pewter and gold … or mix your metals and “wedge” your bets.
