Dries Van Noten: Jewelry SS17

April 26, 2017

High collars have made a grand comeback for the spring and summer season. Layers of clothes are slowly coming off in lieu of t-shirts, tank tops, skirts, and dresses, but there is no reason why you can’t layer on the jewelry. Dries Van Noten has gone out of his way to embed delicate details and beading to his pieces to become ornate items of their own. If you need a statement necklace to go with your favourite tank top, these are the pieces for you.

The Beaded Neck Piece contains a mixture of large and small beads. Strung with a cotton and silk lining, exquisite patterns emerged. Made with long oval beads that hang at the top part of the neck piece and layered with strings of beads to form a decorative arrangement reminiscent of several peacocks. This can be worn with anything with a plunging neckline or a fitted jacket for a power look.


For a more elegant vibe, you will want to wear the Gigino Embroidered Collar. Embedded with small intricate beads that form a leaf imagery and chiffon edges, the best part of the Victorian era has arrived. Dazzling to the eye, the long oval beads make an appearance once again and hang over the collar as curtains do. Burlesque meets edgy for a grand show. Perfect for a night out on the town when you want to make a big impression.
