Trend Report | Statement Choker

September 7, 2016

The leading detail of the Autumn/Winter 2016 season. 

Chokers are still ruling the fashion game. Another season in a row. Yet this Autumn the necklace is going far beyond just a little piece of ribbon... 
It will be quite fair to say that chokers are growing big, in terms of size of course. More massive than before. And if a classic choker aka 'narrow stripe' made of velvet, casual ribbon or even lace is all about touch of elegance, the massive one is going to be pretty much of a powerful statement. So what the Autumn/Winter statement choker is all about? First of all, it is massive, in other words, able to cover almost whole neck. Secondly, apart from being made of velvet, leather and so on, it also goes in metal and even fur and feather options. Sounds just perfect for future winter? It is.
When it comes to seasonal runway references, then you should definitely take a look at Lanvin, Loewe, Balmain and Dries Van Noten. As well as at PQAP's selection of coolest statement chokers...
