Neck cuff, is the new trend?



First we had the statement necklaces and those have been around for a long time, there are still a bit around but not like in the beginning. But of course they couldn’t be around for a long time, in the fashion industry a thing ( clothes, accessories) will only be able to be around for a short period of time before it gets replaced by something else. And that is what is happening now with the statement necklace and the neck cuff… well sort of. Is the neck cuff going to replace the statement necklace?cuff2_thumb_600x399

 The neck cuffs have been spotted in a lot of collections of top designers like Michael Kors and Céline.

Belgian designer Raf Simons fully embraced the man skirt for his Spring/Summer 2013 presentation at Paris Fashion Week, pulling inspiration from womenswear collections to create masculine versions of dresses and oversized t-shirts. Pop art was also a big influence, with boxy androgynous silhouettes, clean lines, and lots of bold blocks of pink, green, and blue. Vintage-style prints reminiscent of 1920s graphic design also featured on many of the pieces, with depictions of male athletes accompanied by text such as “artificially flavored”.

Toronto Fashion Week: Despite the wall-to-wall crowds, the start of Toronto World Master Card Fashion Week show is generally a slow burn, with things not getting properly fired up until at least day 2. However, the parade of the fall/winter 2012 fashion week collections show – again held in the city’s David Pecaut Square – started out with a bang, or rather, a tap.
