Fashion week has come to an end after trotting across New York, London, Milan and Paris with hundreds of shows from the world’s most renowned luxury houses and emerging designers.

We take a look at some of the best and worst accessories on the catwalks. By accessories we pretty much mean everything besides the clothes themselves: from shoes and handbags to sunglasses, jewellery and tech gear.

Victoria Beckham debuted a shoe line during New York Fashion Week. The designs were chunky platforms and pointed flat shoes – a far cry from her signature stilettos. Also, Miley Cyrus revealed her “art” in a bizarre collaboration with Jeremy Scott, she called it “Dirty Hippie” and it mainly consisted of jewellery she’d cobbled together with the things she gets from fans while on stage.

Scott then went to Milan to present his Barbie-inspired collection for Moschino, introducing iPhone cases that looked like toys –a pink mirror and bright yellow camera. At Fendi, everything was mini; even Karl Lagerfeld’s furry key ring was reduced into a miniature size. Prada’s flower print platforms would send you back to the happy hippie days of the sixties.

Anya Hindmarch in London unveiled graffiti arts as the premise of her spring/summer collection. She’s become the quirky handbag designer at fashion week -after Sophia Webster’s bright and bold shoes and clutches.

In Paris things got more dramatic, or rather jokey. Models at Alexander McQueen wore black masks – around the visage rather than over it. Chanel show didn’t have much of the novelty bags from previous collections, but stylish megaphones instead, used by models who returned to the stage in a feminist riot after the show finished. As our fashion editor Alex Fury said, “shame it all had to end like that”.
