For the home, the office, the car. How many keys do we bring with us every day? To find them easily we surely need a very useful key holder. There are people who see this accessory only as an essential object, so they choose minimal and functional shapes. Others love keychains as real objects of desire to collect. Well, the spring summer 2019 fashion collections satisfied everyone.
Key holder, an essential object to always have everything at your fingertips
Keyrings are really an accessory that we cannot do without, because every day we have to carry with us many keys to open the doors of the house or office. For those who always have a thousand commitments and want to keep everything perfectly ordered and under control, the ideal are the functional key rings.
Among the small leather goods there are models in leather closed by press buttons or a zip, which inside can hold many keys of different sizes. They are among the most appreciated and in fact many fashion houses create models in line with the shapes and colors of their bags and wallets.
This is the case, for example, of brands such as Bottega Veneta, which makes engraved or interwoven leather keyrings, Dolce & Gabbana, which use reptile printing on leather, Fendi or L'Autre Chose, which create closed models with zip, or Jimmy Choo decorating his leather key holders with many star-shaped studs coordinated with his bags.
Another very simple model, but extremely functional, is the one with leather strap and steel rings, proposed by many stylists and loved for its practicality. There are those very simple in leather designed by Montblanc, those by Tod's in colored and stitched leather, but also, for those who love color, the fanciful and almost psychedelic prints by Maria Enrica Nardi.
The colors and the materials most loved by fashion designers for key rings with charms
For the spring summer 2019 the trendiest fashion designers offer many models of key rings, but certainly one of the most popular is the one with pendant charms.
For those who love simple shapes, there are those with a metal nametag proposed by Marc Jacobs, Maison Margiela and Alexander McQueen, or those in leather by Piquadro and Moncler.
Always in leather, but this time decorated with tassels of fringes, there are the colored proposals by Orciani, Giorgio Armani, Braccialini and Calvin Klein.
The mania for logos printed almost everywhere, one of the main trends of the season, also comes in the keychain, with the symbols of the most famous brands that become metal charms to which hold all our keys.
Some examples are Moschino, who writes its name on metal letters, Bally, which chooses only the initial and creates it in enamel metal, or Versace, which creates charms with their iconic Medusa Head, realized both in gold and enamel in pop and fluorescent colors.
Make room for imagination with the most fun and cool keychains of the summer 2019
Besides being a very essential accessory, keychain become a fashionable must-have of the season and could be also a perfect gift for our friends. The collections of small leather goods and accessories of the best brands offer this year many different forms, triggering the imagination of the designers.
Among the most loved models there are those with heart-shaped charms, made of many different materials and colors for example by Philipp Plein, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Furla, Maison Margiela and Mulberry.
Another very nice shape is that of the mini bags perfectly coordinated for prints and colors with their older sisters, the real bags. There are the mini handbags with floral or animal print by Dolce & Gabbana, the multicolored 70's style ones by Emilio Pucci, the simple and refined two-tone leather ones by Bally and those with strong colors by Versace.
Among the most bizarre forms, always Dolce & Gabbana use irony and are inspired by Pop Art for their key holders in the shape of food jars that recall those created at his time by Andy Warhol.
The key ring can also be nice characters that keep us company during the long days of shopping or at work. Among the most amusing ones are the small comic portraits of Karl Lagerfeld, who has now become one of the most iconic characters in the history of fashion, or those by Love Moschino that are inspired by the character of Olivia from the cartoon Popeye, already present in many collections of the brand.
