Spring/Summer 2016 runways were blossoming with hair accessories; what women have always used for comfort is now turning more and more into a chic and glamorous addition. Fruit and flowers from Dolce & Gabbana, lace flowers from Antonio Marras, and flowers again from Gucci, Diane Von Fustemberg and Moncler. A more minimal style from Miu Miu, Givenchy, and Alberta Ferretti, down to Luisa Beccaria’s simple ribbon bows. But there were also stones and rhinestones from Saint Laurent and Scervino, and metallic touches from Chanel, Rodarte and Zimmerman (full gallery on Vanity Fair, here).
True jewellery accessories, as Wallpaper shows: the latest trend in high fashion jewellery is extending even to hair. Simple, minimalistic lines with precious stones and sophisticated designs. Like American designer Sophie Buhai’s beautiful silver and wood hair clips, initially made from salvaged materials (her Brâncuși Barrette starts at $375). Brazilian Ana Khouri takes a different approach with real luxury minimalism: diamonds and precious stones sparkle amongst her basic, essential lines. But it’s Charlotte Dauphin de la Rochefoucauld, with her Disruptive line, who gives hair-jewellery its true meaning. Her beautiful, irresistible rings, stacked with staggering white and rose gold and brilliant pavé, go for almost €20,000.
Just like Alessia Solidani’s collection on The Italian Touch White Edition: accessories for ceremonies and gala events, real haute couture for special evenings (check out the White collection here).
