Innovation, experimentation and style research are the key ingredients behind the new proposals in accessories & footwear from Replay. The iconic items from Spring/Summer 2017 are reinterpreted in line with new trends, and enhanced with details to make them unique, veritable “must haves” to complete both men’s and women’s wardrobes.

The inspiration for him comes straight from the biker world. Among the cult accessories for men, a backpack is essential: practical, handy and versatile, it has become indispensable for everyday working life as well as for leisure use.

The iconic Sea Move is an imperative. With its attractive and original design, it represents the ultimate in practicality and convenience, and is extremely handy for leisure use. There are many different versions available, from black leather with contrasting stripes on the sides, to a hammered leather version with canvas inserts for a more urban look, or camouflage print fabric versions in shades of black or the more classic military green. City Rider is the perfect backpack for men who never compromise on practicality or style. For them, this modern design proposal combines looks, comfort and high-tech ruggedness, with features indispensable for today’s world, such as a laptop compartment and a top pocket for electronic devices with an aperture for earphones. For the FW17/18 season, the model has been conceived in a black technical fabric version that will look great with any outfit. To complete the range and meet the many different needs a man may have, there is a full and varied assortment of backpacks, carryalls, shoulder bags and smaller leatherwear items. The predominant colors are shades of gray, black and blue, also seen in camouflage versions. The absolute must-have of the season is a fabric backpack with two central zippered pockets and contrasting black stripes, available in blue, dark gray and light gray, while the very latest new entry is a field jacket that transforms from a sports jacket into a handy backpack.

Proposals for her play on colors, shapes, materials and applications, for a feisty dynamic look. A melting pot of influences from the military, biker, rock and pop worlds, all mixed into one glamorously feminine result.

The iconic New Eve bag can be either hand-held or worn on the shoulder, and is already a Replay best seller for Spring/Summer 2017. In the new collection it maintains the same formats – mini, small and medium – making it perfect for both day and evening use, while its colors, material combinations and effects are revamped to give a range of proposals that will win over any fashion addict. Hammered leather or luxurious pony skin inserts, floral or camouflage print fabrics and little appliqué studs make New Eve the latest It bag, thanks to its infinite possibilities. Other proposals include maxi bags and bucket bags, to be worn on the shoulder or across the body for everyday use, or backpacks, an essential item for true fashion fiends. Hand-held mini bags are indispensable, as are the perfect pochettes for the evening. The colors of the FW17-18 collection range from black to dove-gray, perfect with any look, through to stronger tones, such as yellow, bright green or red, for women who love more daring accessories.

Footwear reflects the themes seen in the clothing line, thus complementing it perfectly.

The men’s collection draws on three worlds for its inspiration: boots, city and sneakers. Jack boots, biker boots, desert boots, ankle boots and mid-cut boots all still express Replay’s genetic make-up. When it comes to boots, one essential element is undoubtedly the leather, which, with hand-applied treatments and washes, makes these items iconic, with an unmistakably worn feel. Rigorous blacks, grays and browns are defused with metal details such as zips and buckles in steel and brass, or with stitching that skillfully breaks up the monochrome upper. The City mood includes a range of urban-style proposals. Footwear with a classic sporting base becomes a perfect hybrid for everyday city life, adapting to an elegantly casual style, thanks to influences from the Active world. Finally, for sneaker addicts, the proposal ranges from running shoes to tennis shoes in leather or fabric, in all the colors typical of the winter season, as well as military and camouflage nuances. The season’s essentials are customized models with Hyperflex fabric inserts, for true denim connoisseurs.

The collection for her explores the same themes as the men’s universe, reinterpreted in a distinctly feminine key. The boot collection, expanded for the FW17/18 season, ranges from iconic and timeless models such as biker, beatle and jack boots in solid-color luxury leathers, to customized pieces, such as the lace-up jack boots with floral prints, appliqué multi-pins, oversize patches, or sequins, as well as biker models decorated with zips and chains. The used-effect leather is proposed in the classic tones of black and brown, as well as gray and burgundy. New for the season is the biker boot with a wide heel, for a feisty-yet-feminine look. The women’s line also gives a modern-day interpretation of the wild west, where the absolute stars are Texan boots in a range of heights, from ankle boots to knee-high models: the simplicity of the suede in shades of brown and tan combines with appliqué studs, big, fancy buckles and leather straps. For the city theme, the classic men’s lace-up with its college flavor is revisited with features in leather, lace, sequins and studs, as well as leather with laminated or glitter effects. The urban-inspired look is also enhanced with metal details and fake-zip edges. Completing the mood, décolleté shoes with a slim heel and a slight plateau, dressed in printed velvet, straps and buckles with a western feel, and moccasins with a square heel and a fringe in the front, in laminated leather with a range of color options. Finally, a generous selection of sneakers, from running shoes with camouflage, studs or patches on the heel, to vulcanized constructions, made dressy and chic with trendy inserts in colored faux-fur or in gold and silver laminated-effect leather.
