Fashion’s new wanderlust attitude can transport you anywhere in an instant- with the clip of an earring or zip of a sandal an array of cultures and whimsical destinations are at your beck-and-call. For SS16, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli at Valentino took us to the  wild plains of Africa in a ciematic collection celebrating tribal crafts. While the clothes were magnificent, the accessories they were paired with truly left us dreaming. From intricate hand-painted and gem embellished sandals to raffia renderings of the signature rockstud cross body-each piece has an authentic feel, as if perfectly worn-in from years of world travel. Layer the gold-plated ebony baubles on top of one another for an eclectic attitude or take a cue from the runway and pair with a crisp white blouse for a modern spin. No matter how you choose to style these finds, always remember that just because your headed to the office doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize like your on safari.
