One Is Better Than Two-------
The Fall ’13 shows wrapped in Paris yesterday, and one of the many trends that stuck out this season was the single earring. Models at Dries Van Noten donned fractured crystals on their right ears, which lent a retro-futuristic glamour to the designer’s smart, feminine wares. Over at Thakoon, we spotted leafy, silver, pearl-embellished ear cuffs. Naturally, Versace offered a punk play on the trend, piercing models’ lobes with a giant spike, and chez Kenzo, it was all about structured, squiggly, dangling versions. At Chloé, Clare Waight Keller kept it simple, showing small gold pieces at the top of the ear. And the look has even taken to the street, as model Aymeline Valade was seen backstage at quite a few shows wearing a sole silver piercing. Needless to say, when it comes to earrings, one is no longer the loneliest number.
