Swamibu London Fashion Week AW13
It all began in Autumn 2012, when the likes of Nicole Kidman and Katy Perry stepped out onthe red carpet wearing studs worked into gorgeously girly and demure outfits, the stud craze has been popping off all over planet fashion, and we at J’adore Tresor are totally sold! Burberry, Versace, Gucci and most dramatically Christian Louboutin have all developed the super sexy trend in all different directions. This explosion of diversity highlights the schizophrenic nature of the style, all the way from cute ‘n’ cuddly to rough ‘n’ tough!
There are hundreds of different ways that the fashionista following have worn studs over the season, and there is a technique for everyone to get their ideal look, from subtle stud accessories to leather jackets, wedge shoes and trousers, solidly smothered in scary spikes! The Tornade collection from Tresor Paris has proven itself a must have addition to the fabulous fad; toughen up the laciest of dresses with a riotously rose gold-plated bracelet. Or create a glamourous contrast by mixing that scraggly, beat-up old jacket with the white crystal encrusted stud bracelet: it’s unusual and eye-catching, fusing sparkling sophistication with the powerfully punk rock look.#
Mess around with the type of stud you’re wearing; if you want to make an attention-grabbing catwalk statement, slap on the ‘70s style punk spikes for a grunge-glam get-up. For everyday wear a flat studded collar or cuff can make a girly, pastel dress look sultry, adding a touch of sourpuss to a sickly sweet look.
