Cos­tume drama

The Kit - - THEKIT.CA - —Jil­lian Vieira

The prospect of luxe-look­ing jew­els with­out a colos­sal price tag may sound too good to be true, but the spring run­ways were packed with cov­etable cos­tume em­bel­lish­ment. When Alessan­dro Michele, Gucci’s much lauded cre­ative di­rec­tor, burst onto the scene in 2015 as the ul­ti­mate agent of vin­tage kitsch, his pen­chant for es­tate-sale charm sparked a full-on fash­ion move­ment. And this sea­son, mod­els at Bot­tega Veneta and Gi­ambat­tista Valli, draped in the best faux fin­ery, proved that even the most ex­clu­sive de­sign­ers are game to dress up in cos­tume jew­ellery.

Lay­ered cos­tume jew­els added the per­fect, quirky fin­ish­ing touch to the rave-re­viewed looks on the Gucci run­way.
