Spotted on Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, and Lily Rose-Depp, the choker necklace has officially become the edgiest trend this season
A choker necklace is the jewel-du-jour and Hollywood has given it a welcome nod this season. Remember Olivia Wilde’s Bulgari choker at the Golden Globes red carpet this year? Cara Delevingne also adorned a black choker with an embellished pendant for the opening of Mademoiselle Privé, a Chanel exhibition in London. Sienna Miller exuded British charm on the Cannes red carpet in an exquisite choker necklace by Bulgari. Lilly Rose Depp gave us our ultimate style high when she adorned a crimson red choker for Chanel’s SS 16 show in Paris.
The choker necklace first appeared as part of the Native Americans traditional attire. Cut to the 90’s when they made a comeback in the heyday of grunge, chokers have traversed an interesting path.
Chokers registered their presence on the ramp this season as well. In Milan, Paris, New York and London, runways were replete with some most interesting reinterpretations of chokers. At Dior, Raf Simmons stuck to his signature minimal chic and showcased a collection with hints of chokers in the form of scarves. Italian designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino got inspired by the Masai region of Africa, with cultural hints in the collection via tribal chokers in metal and terracotta.
Paris fixture Chanel’s airport-inspired collection was replete with solid silhouettes and complimenting those tweed skirts and jackets were chokers in silver studs with pearls. Known for his revolutionary disco dresses Olivier Rousteing sent Balmain’s army down the ramp packed in suede and leather. Adding a punch of shine were warrior style metallic chokers. Alexander Wang’s street style inspired line in New York exuded dishevelled glamour, which were complimented by chain lock chokers in gold and silver.
