Fool for jewels: Optical illusions from YSL, Tom Binns
We’ve been seeing a lot of trompe l’oeil details at some of our recent market appointments—specifically, clothing with jewelry or accessories sewn right in. At YSL’s showing of its Edition 24 collection, we had to look twice when the model came out wearing a white blouse with a flashy gold (embroidered) watch on one cuff and a skirt with a chic gold chain “belt.”
Newcomer Holly Fulton’s Swarovski-sponsored collection (above) featured colorful Art-Deco necklaces on gorgeous faux snakeskin shifts.
And for those who aren’t able to splurge on his jewels, Tom Binns now has tees featuring heavy-duty silk-screened gems (above). In the immortal words of Guns N’ Roses, its time to use your illusion.
