Leather, studs and gloss: when a minimal design mixes with these indispensable details, the result is rock-chic, a tendency that never goes out of fashion. Autumn/Winter 2017-18 has no limits for studs, which are to be found on casual items, but also on sophisicated ones, to create an aesthetic dimension between retro and avant-garde. Punk-style decorations, such as skulls, are featured on boots, ankle boots and stivaletti, giving them an original overtone and opening the door to studs mania. This is a rebel style, loaded with swarms of metal of various dimensions, where micro and macro mix, to give a high impact metropolitan touch, even in small doses. Studs can give a super-strong twist to a look, whether they are flat, round, squared off, pointed, silver or gold, and they go with tailored or minimal clothes, or with basic garments, such as shirts, jeans and blazers, with a mannish inspiration. The irreverent aesthetics of these cult details create a contrast with the clean design of a formal wardrobe and enhance it, giving the feminine silhouette an appeal with strong rock-chic overtones.
