Currently Craving Volume II

Leandra Medine | March 29, 2012

A whole bunch o’chokers. Fashion is weird awesome in that while one trend may be penetrating the market in such massive capacity, another one on the opposite end of the spectrum is doing the same exact thing. Up this season: the 50s vs. 90s dichotomy. Torn up plaid on the one hand, high waist mid-length full, full…full a-line skirt on the other. It all comes back to the general notion of non-committal style and owning that which you put out there. Sometimes I feel like a broken record player replaying old episodes of some sort of House of Style-Oprah hybrid show. And how does the aforementioned disconnect relate to the photographed–a mouth with what looks like type-A orthodentically treated, or maybe Brigittie Bardot inspired teeth? The choker effect, duh. Take a look back at Charlotte Ronson, Nina Ricci even Pucci and then report over with the one common denominator. If nothing else, the choker will at least give the mouth on your face a place to defer to should it need a small break. Aurelie Bidermann, $340 at Five Story NY.

    I think this mouth is modeled after Jane Birkin's… I wish it were just the lips.

    Fashion is still about expressing (stereotype writing? pleading guilty), so it's only fair you have a lot of trends contradicting themselves. Although I wouldn't exactly wear this version of it, I am pro chokers 😉

    I know exactly what you mean about opposite things being in style at the same time! Like what's with the ballet flat and mega-platform-hooker heels convergence? And skinny jeans and wide-leg flares? I read in wiki that as decades continue it becomes harder to pin down a specific 'style' for a given decade; and as it becomes easier to market a wider variety of styles to a wider variety of people I often wonder if the "decade" look days are over.

    Also super glad chokers are back, they're pretty much the most badass necklace ever and as far as I'm concerned they never left. Also those super-long necklaces just don't work with big boobs. At all.
