Is Ivanka Trump's fashion line any good? | Fashion |
- The fashion top line: there is nothing “alt” about the Ivanka Trump fashion range, aesthetically speaking. There are shoes that seem heavily inspired by the two-tone Chanel slingbacks that flooded Instagram feeds this time last year. There are bags whose extended side-panels recall the famous Celine Trapeze tote. There’s a black shopper with laser cut-outs that is spookily reminiscent of the £1,780 status arm-candy by Azzedine Alaia. There are Chanel 2.55-shaped handbags of the kind produced in every supermarket concession. The collection shows a talent for taking the temperature of what was happening in design five years ago, which is par for the course in high street design.
