We headed out to London Fashion Week, deeming the esteemed event a fantastic place to spot emerging trends. While plenty of fashionistas had been swept away on a tide of Christopher Kane adoration we couldn’t help but note the stunning array of street stylers decked out in punky statement studs. Decorating everything from the classic loafer to the humble hair tie it’s clear that studded accessories are a street fashion favourite.
Premier designers are pushing the trend for studded accessories treating bags, footwear and jewellery to all manner of statement metallic stud arrangements. Prada give classic men’s brogues a high fashion update with the season’s favourite embellishment while Louboutin uses all over conical studs to ensure the desirability of leather ankle boots.
Savvy high street and online retailers are already tuning in to the popular trend. Be sure to offer studded accessories within your men’s and womenswear ranges now.
