Spring may seem far away, but we’re always shopping a season (or two) ahead and have already spotted a big trend to watch – winged accessories. While the butterfly is nothing new in fashion, its incarnations are getting more and more intricate from Bottega’s abstract patchwork or Sergio Rossi’s filigree heels. Which wings will you be flying with this spring?
