Haute Around The Collar
When it comes to fashion, accessories are the finishing touches that complete any ensemble. Basically, they can make or break an oufit. What they should do, is break your wallet.
Hot on trend at the moment are detachable collars. They can add some much needed va-va-voom to any dress or sweater. But when they cost the equivalent of a house, you may want to go with a chunky necklace instead.
As much as we’d love to own a Karl Lagerfeld-designed collar, we think this is a little K-razy. But that doesn’t mean we cannot ooh and ahh. Karl Lagerfeld’s black metallic leather collar consists of over 40 carats of black diamonds and just over 22 carats of emeralds around the collar, with a hydrothermal emerald set in the front. This one-of-a-kind collar costs over R373 000 and can be bought on Net-a-Porter for those who have the cash to flash.
For those who just want a peek, it’ll be displayed alongside other great pieces from Dior and Roger Vivier at the Brilliantexhibition at The Royal Hospital Chelsea in London from the 28th June 2012.Image via Vogue.co.uk
