Giving New Meaning To The Term “Treasure Chest”

-------

To bedazzle or not to bedazzle: That’s the question for Fall, with designers building bling directly into their clothes. Oscar de la Renta showed trompe l’oeil bijoux, printing photos of precious stones on his cocktail dresses, while Lanvin‘s Alber Elbaz and Miuccia Prada encrusted their respective looks with luxe crystals—some of which made their red-carpet debuts at this week’s Met gala. ANDAM nominee Vika Gazinskaya, for her part, gave the look a daytime spin with the novelty sweatshirt she sported in the Tuileries. The best part of these bedecked numbers? While still pricey, they’ll make a significantly smaller dent in your wallet than real-deal platinum and diamonds.

    Love the built-in bling! The clothing become their own accessories, it’s wonderful.

    It is great when clothes are already embelished, it saves time and makes the outfit look put-together.
