A belt, a bag, a bangle, the little detail that ties it all together
LONDON, April 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Accessories are magical. Accessories are the tools we use to transform good taste into real presence. Effective personal styling is rarely about a complete, season-on-season reinvention. What can turn last year's hottest day dress into this season's rocking party frock? A heel. A clutch. And a bit of imagination. Clothes are a great joy but it's accessories that keep us interested. And interesting.

This spring, the Collection of Chic Outlet Shopping(R) Villages launches 'The Art of the Detail' campaign to entice savvy shoppers to discover a lavish selection of must-have accessories, with savings of up to 60% on the recommended retail price. From leading international designers to niche European collections, between 60 and 140 luxury outlet boutiques in each Village offer price reductions that will make visitors double take; a single visit can turn a wardrobe around.
You know those punchy neon and sherbet accent belts that can immediately funk up a kaftan? What about introducing bold geometric jewellery worn with a sharp work suit to really pack a punch? Surely you've discovered the ruthless-looking wedge that turns a sundress into a cocktail dress? And who can resist the transformative charms of a bright white day-to-evening clutch, one of the season's key trends?
As part of 'The Art of the Detail' campaign, the nine Chic Outlet Shopping(R) Villages will host a range of promotions and events from 16 April to 13 May, with Las Rozas Village near Madrid headlining the campaign with a VIP event premiering 'The Art of the Detail' film and a catwalk show hosted by international style icon Jerry Hall.
"I am delighted to support 'The Art of the Detail' campaign. Accessories are emotional. There is always a story to tell through your choice of accessory and they will often become your most treasured possessions. I look forward to visiting the Chic Outlet Shopping(R) Villages and discovering an elegant accessory or two for myself." Jerry Hall
Accessories are the grammar with which we punctuate our fashion lives. They must be interesting and varied, and with a visit to one of the Chic Outlet Shopping(R) Villages sourcing them can be fun and satisfying.
