Jewel-encrusted clothing: Spring/Summer 2009 Trend

By Tania Braukamper

Whether exotic or classical, bejewelled clothing is most certainly going to be a fashion trend for 2009.

Who designed it...

Zac Posen embraced the exotic with Egyptian-themed jewel details, while Alberta Ferretti mixed lavish jewels with feminine fringing. It was Alexander McQueen, however, that produced the most breathtaking variations on this trend, from his bejewelled shoes to a neck-to-toe jewel encrusted catsuit.

How to wear it...

This is the one Spring/Summer 2009 trend that you won’t need to pile your statement jewellery on with. Each jewel-studded piece should be a statement of its own: make it stand out.

As with most runway trends, also be wary of how this translates to high-street versions; quality is paramount when it comes to jewel detailing.
