You may think fruit belongs in a bowl but this season the only place it should be is on your bag. Food inspired accessories have long been a fashion favourite but instead of Moschino fries and sweetie clutch bags, the latest food to covet is fruit. We’ve loved fruity accessories ever since Miuccia Prada sported banana earrings to her spring/summer 2011 show, so we’re delighted that fashion is reinventing the zesty accessory. Make the watermelon your must-have fashion statement- it’s guaranteed to add a refreshing twist to any summer outfit.
