It all begin with Mr. Christian Louboutin. As soon as Louboutin came out with his studded shoes in many styles and fabrications, the trend spread like wild fire. It seems as though this trend that is here to stay. Not only have high end designers taken to the style, such as Aurelie Bidermann’s jewels, and Alexander Wang’s bags, but designers at a lower price point have followed. Sam Edelman (yes, the Lorissa’s that I am still yet to purchase) and Dolce Vita have released footwear heavily embellished with the sharp, and almost dangerous studs.
We love the many Louboutin styles, such as the denim stilettos, leather sneaks & red flats pictured above. But Dolce Vita (far top right) and Sam Edelman (center right bottom) have made comparable styles. Just released on Netaporter today are other options by Alaia (far left and middle left bottom). Pair any of these with a little black dress, or casual jeans and a sexy top and you’re good to go.
I’m a bag hag. Yes I said it. I can’t get enough, and I especially can’t get enough of these fabulously embellished purses. Wang’s carry all messenger bag (far left top) is simplicity with a twist. It also comes in a pale pink, which I’m kind of obsessed with. Need a little evening bag adorned with studs? Take the Diane von Furstenberg “Belle evening bag” (top center). Super fantastic and a bit understated. Balenciaga is another classic. We all need one of those in the closet.
JEWELZ. I can safely say I am in love with every piece shown above. Aurelie Bidermann (my fave jewelry designer) endorses this big time with the heavily studded pink cuff and studded bangle (center top). The Isabel Marant and Miu Miu bangles above (on the left) are other fab options. I love the mix of masculine and feminine here. The gold ring is by Daisy Knights, and the tribal spiked ring is by Pamela Love.
Our girl Lady Gaga most definitely takes the cake for the most incredible studded piece. A studded Birkin. I have a little heart attack every time I see this bag. Only Gags could rock this bag with such conviction. But I think I might be able to compete (buy for meeee).
