Cheap is finally chic this season as designers have gone crazy over plastic accessories. Admittedly the trend isn’t new – Karl Lagerfeld created a plastic Chanel handbag years ago – but this season’s creations are super fun and playful making them a must have on every editor’s wish list.

Best of all, there are plenty of options to choose from. Go futuristic and fierce as seen at Givenchy and Celine. Valentino meanwhile offered more elegant couture-inspired shoes and Cinderella slippers. Top of my wish list is a clear clutch – either a soft envelope style or Perspex box. For shoes, it’s all about the clear block heel, plastic straps or details combined with more luxe materials such as leather or studs.

Here are a few of my favourites.
