There's no doubt, that accessories play an important role in fashion. First of all selling bags, shoes etc. is the real business in the industry, but if we see them less materially, they can totally change the overall picture, and embrace self- (or mood) expression.
I really loved when Starbucks has finally made its runway debut, thanks to Dsquared2 Fall 2009 Ready to Wear show. It really emerged into the cheapest "it" accessoires piece since it became a must have for paparazzi, or street style shots. Despite McDonald's McCafe was the official sponsor of NYC fashion week, it didn't stop celebs from schlepping in their Starbucks lattes.
(I just have to stop here, and tell you a secret; I'm totally NOT into the actual coffee they offer, so I'd encourage you to skip starbucks if it's not about being cool, just having a pretty good coffee...)
