Runway Trend: Piled-On Pearls
The statement necklace is the star of the runways this season, with Tom Binns-like tangled assemblages of chains and pendants. While many variations feature chain links, the newest styles pile on the pearls. Mixes of different pearl sizes add textural interest. Some styles also have a ribbon tie in the back for more texture.
Reem Acra showed bib necklaces draped with swags of pearls. Badgley Mischka showed necklaces with multiple strands secured in front with brooch-like stations. Dries Van Noten showed twisted pearl collars with large rectangular pendants.
One of the newest ways to wear a strand of pearls, seen on the runway at John Galliano, is wrapped around the wrist.
