Giles Deacon for Ungaro
It’s time to put away those dangling pendants and dainty chains.
For Fall, designers are hot under their collars for fierce,
face-framing choker necklaces.
Whether they came with door knocker-sized ornaments
Wilma Flintstone-esque pebbled jewels
à la Bottega Veneta,
or in fetish-y leather as they did at
it was all about achieving a snug fit
that sits atop the collarbone.
Yves St. Laurent
Thakoon Velvet Rope
Hermes Silver Ring
Salvatore Ferragamo Jewel Encrusted Open Ring
Valentino Lace Wreath
And chokers aren’t just for the runways.
Lots of fashionistas attending fashion weeks
have been spotted wearing single-strand
So, change is good for business...voila...we have change!
But, you know, I'm getting tired of those awful knitted bib necklaces,
to me, they always looked like they were "made by loving hands at home."
With this new trend I am particularly enamored
of the Ferragamo open-ring design,
& with that severe glen-plaid tailoring
this necklace is a huge
And, I LOVE the velvet rope!
So soft, yet bold in statement.
What do you think?
Do you like chokers?
