Couture to Street
Just in time when we all thought chokers, corsets and lingerie-as-outerwear made a brief 90s comeback, the images from recent couture runway shows display otherwise. The luxurious take on these details are worth a sigh, so instead of aimlessly floating in between your Instagram feed and Pinterest boards, these visuals are worth diving into. Get some serious wardrobe inspiration for this summer below, with our affordable, street style perfect suggestions available in the store.
We all cried floods of tears while witnessing Instagram stories from Parisienne babes in the likes of Jeanne Damas and it-girls turned editors like Olivia Palermo during Christian Dior Fall 2018 couture collection. Apart from sweet cotton candy excitement towards the crepe gowns, and floor-to-ceiling colossal decorations, there they were : 18th-century-like petite chokers in a range of colours. To recreate the couture look of a unicorn kissed Marie Antoinette suitable for day-to-night chores, opt for our Fila Choker in cream or Black Magic Choker in merlot.
Giambattista Valli, Georges Chakra & Rani Zakhem
Many fall 2018 couture shows were sparkling with jewellery elements which simultaneously transitioned into the gowns. Both designers Georges Chakra and Rani Zakhem featured neckline details, while at Giambattista Valli the layered necklaces over the net hair pieces took place. To make your go-to subtle look more festive but still wearable during day time, style our Pearl Reign Choker with open shoulder blouses or simple spaghetti strap dresses. If you feel more frisky and are not afraid to experiment with layering accessories, The Bling Choker is our best bet.
Ahead of The Game
The label Vetements, which still balances the allure of hype and semi-accessibility, keeps the public on its toes with the obscenities written in Russian and BDSM themed chokers. Meanwhile, students at Istituto Marangoni in London return to corsets as outerwear as well as harnesses. Without looking like the 50 shades trilogy placed its claws in your closet, style your lingerie details with oversized coats, BDSM chokers with tailored shirts and keep your corsets casually loose.
