Earring, Mislaid
This is a short, sweet and somewhat odd accessory look for autumn/winter 2014: the single earring. It is championed by two of the world’s most copied designers – Nicolas Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton and Phoebe Philo at Céline (below) – so will doubtless be popping up not only on the high street, but in high-fashion collections to come. It’s a cost-effective one – half the earring, half the price. Or if you decide to go down the Janet Jackson (circa “Rhythm Nation”) route, it’s a convenient hanging place for a spare set of latchkeys.
