At first, I lent only a bemused eye to Steven Meisel’s ‘Haute Mess’, who seemed to have recruited an army of Amazonian eccentrics to adorn truly questionable outfits for his Vogue Italia photo shoot in March. However, on closer inspection, I could just about see a glimmer of Vuitton and Blumarine amidst the diamante encrusted scalps and talons, as well as the svelte form of Coco Rocha encased in an armour of Twix wrappers, indulging in a milkshake. From this glorious spectacle, it would seem that the most coveted of designers are now seeking to harness ‘Trash Culture’. Those who know it best make a point to constantly flaunt, with unashamed skill, a love of all things lamé, neon and counterfeit, and what better way to do this than through the clear walls of a PVC lined stage that is a ‘designer’ emblazoned bag to proudly bear your bedazzled trinkets.
The likes of Hermès and Prada have since tried to ‘tame’ such a philosophy and have successfully moulded it into a single, simple and manageable accessory. For houses as highly esteemed as these, their name delicately placed across a perfectly structured piece of crystal-clear plastic has produced an exceedingly desirable array of bags that were widely showcased on the streets of the most recent fashion weeks. However, many of my friends may attempt to deter me from buying such a piece, as I am sure that they don’t feel prepared to be exposed to the deepest, most neglected corners of my handbag.
This article actually helped me secure an internship with Fashion156. I'll be starting in August and I'm literally so excited to finally start getting really involved in fashion :D

You might then furrow a crystal embellished brow at Pamela Love's crystal cuffs, one who would have our wrists bear these staggering formations. However, their gleam could not shield from the fact that they are impossibly similar to that of Chanel's, which resulted in Chanel actually withdrawing the bracelets from their fall collection. Nevertheless, the fact that both designers chose to produce pieces that were so much alike proves that this is to be a highly coveted trend.

With chandeliers symbolizing the utmost luxury and wealth, your status in the industry is sure to be secured if you were to grace your face with these delicate chains and decadent jewels. Inbar Spector's astonishing masks may have concealed a triumphant smirk in satisfaction of being chosen to wear such a unique accessory but, they also exposed a need to transform and to have us question 'where does the skin end and the body start?' If you find yourself needing an excuse to buy one of these beautifully crafted guises, tactfully placed, they could hide or distract from a shameful spot or tired eyes. I know I would rather have people stare in awe, or even in shock at my choice of attire, than be shunned due to a questionable blemish. By appearing in shows from Ashish's 'Bollywouldn't' to Jeremy Scott's hommage to the 90s, the versatility of the face chandelier will ensure that it will be adopted and adored by many in the upcoming seasons.
