This is a code we live by: there is nary a look that cannot be improved by some killer chokers. The upcoming resort collections were luckily full of neck-hugging necklaces. Take for an example, Dior, where Maria Graziani Chiari practically refreshed the khaki fatigues with lashing of beaded festival bracelets and delicate grosgrain ribbon around the throats. And Chanel is where Greek goddesses were found waiting for a trove of antiquity inspired treasures to drape around their sleek necks.
Valentino also kept up with the trend. Pier Paolo Piccioli mined some old-school hip-hop culture for an electrifying sartorial stimulus. They satisfied our choker cravings with finely crafted collars that would have looked great on those pre-Columbian pedigrees.
If your Christmas party mantra states one should never leave the house without ornamenting knuckles, ears and necks, you’re in even more luck: the high street is awash with rhinestone-choked necklaces that will instantly upgrade an understated black dress. Go forth and sparkle.
