After a month of shows and FROWs comes to an end, there are so many trends we’re eager to wear that we can’t quite contain ourselves. But when it comes to accessories, there’s one specific piece that is knocking all others out of the park.
That’s right, brooches are no longer just for your Granny’s jewellery box, they are officially the hottest piece for your accessory collection this season.
The biggest brooch lovers were Prada who adorned their models in countless pins and trinkets to really make an impact. The best way to rock this trend is to go forth and don’t shy away. The more the merrier – it’s all about going for that ‘little too much’ look.
Also proving that brooches don’t need to be restricted to jackets alone – from dresses, jumpsuits and coats to satin, tweed and silk, it was obvious that they will work with everything in your wardrobe.
And Prada weren’t alone in their brooch-lovin’ either with Balenciaga opting to pin thick, chunky coats with lovely metal brooches, including the amazing ‘B’ seen on the front row and the catwalk – which headed straight onto our lust list. Lady Gaga also couldn’t resist giving her LBD a little brooch rework as she took in the show.
Les Copains got in on the action, adorning their lovely fluffy jumpers and knitted scarves with bejeweled butterflies. The contrast of soft and sharp made for a totally fresh feel.
When it came to Chanel, King Karl knew just how to give his classic tailored tweed a 2015 feel by attaching seriously chic and vintage-looking pins (and lots of ’em.)
And who can forget about the Italian superstars Dolce & Gabbana who gave that extra injection of glam by adorning floral and delicate brooches to their red-hot designs.
If you want to get on board spring’s hottest accessory trend, we have you sorted. This amazing butterfly brooch looks as if it has walked straight off the Les Copains catwalk and bonus, it’s as cheap as chips!
Or if you want to spend a little more and go all funky, try out this seriously cool honeybee number.
Whatever you do, just remember, the more the merrier! Welcome back Granny chic!
