Underlining Masataka Matsumura's somber Autumn/Winter 2011 collection for GiulianoFujiwara, an assortment of colorful accessories adds a "rebellious kick" to the line's sleek styling and distinct minimalism. Leather shoes with wedged rubber soles and artisanal Italian finishing give the collection a slightly punk vibe, while illustrating the brand's fondness for smooth curves and sharp corners.

Matsumura's knack for experimenting with color (particularly noticeable in his Spring/Summer 2010 collection) affords him the freedom to experiment with bold details. The sunglasses' hint of visible color completely changes the mood, perfectly outlining the frames' retro shape for a PowderPuff-meets-steampunk effect. While some will see echos of recent Prada accessories, others might wonder if Miuccia has met her match.
