This summer’s studded accessories
Between rock chic and punk rebelliousness, this summer’s accessories bristle with shiny studs. By Rebecca Bleynie.
By embroidering their rucksack with black, red and silver studs, Fendi have produced a rebellious reinterpretation of a classic punk look. Alexander McQueen have also produced a studded bag, whose rock ’n’ roll chic is completed by a metal chain. Eschewing extravagance, Christian Louboutin has attached chunks of metal to the sole of his “On Stage” shoe, while over at Saint Laurent, Hedi Slimane has relooked the cowboy boot with a buckle that sets off the perfect finish of the leather. As for Giuseppe Zanotti, his studs come in all shapes and sizes, dressing up a velvety calf-skin moccasin to startling effect.
