Rebecca Donnelly Makes Accessories Pop
Prop stylist Rebecca Donnelly brought a sense of whimsy to Refinery29's "5 Accessory Trends That POP!" shoot. "I had just been to MoMA before working on this, so I got a kick out of conjuring Dada collages and Man Ray's eye metronome," she said, adding, "The floating ear cracks me up!"
Donnelly and the R29 team created a set of images that feature next season's fashions: in-your-face sunnies, twinkle toes, head-spinning headgear, candy-colored crossbodies, and gum-drop rhinestones.
"Making a strong composition comes to me as I get my hands on the objects I will be styling," she explained. "I don't have a formula or think there are any specific rules, other than to put in the 'bones' first to get a foundation that feels right and then to fill in the trimmings."
