    Bling and Studs

    Do you feel that the bling and studs beginning to die down?
    I've noticed that its still really popular in lots of NA cities, but less in Europe.

    Any suggestions?

    This is an offshoot of punk/neogoth or 80s, but I'm noticing a distinct trend. From Jak and Jil @paris fw to the DIYs on chictopia, to fashiontoast; motojackets (huge?) with extra studs, studded shoe jewelry, studded inner denim butt pockets, little pyramid stud earrings for the wary on urban... (I wish I were energetic enough to have tracked it all, it's gorgeous stuff)

    It's pretty pervasive, but I predict it'll be even more so come FW '09 with more lasting power than the crazy Balmain s shaped pads.

    I'm studding a backpack right now! I'm starting college next year so I want an awesome bag to trek around campus with. It's looking good so far, but it's taking a while. I'll post pictures when more progress is made.

    many blogger fellows doing the studs DIY project, including me.. :D
    I still like it anyway, as long as it doesn't go overrated.

    i love it - and i hate that i love it - because i ONLY began loving it when it became trendy. i feel like i don't legitimately love it... it's some kind of fleeting crush with something that was subconciously planted in my brain.

    i know this because i used to hate studded embellishment on anything (although particularly handbags) and now i feel drawn to studding like the proverbial moth.

    such a fashion victim.

    Personally, I think studs are on the rise, esp as people realize they can do it themselves. I think it's much more of a "street" trend, than a runway trend. But Balmain has some studded pieces

    i think they are on the rise too, since the 80's ive never seen so many studded things that are not worn by punks or similar. i dont see them anymore as "rebel wear" they are starting to appear on chic clothes like the balmain ones

    I personally think studs are a nice accent to an outfit.
    For example the new music video Zero by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the studded jacket that Karen O wears would just be so boring if it wasn't studded.

    A studded jacket would look really great with a white shirt and tie. Something classy with a burst of rock n roll. just think of the applications!

    I agree with Meg, I feel like many of us are somewhat 'ahead of the curve' because we actively participate in fashion-related activities like using tFS or simply blogging. This gives us the capability to distinguish trends and therefore actively either embrace them or reject them. I completely disagree with candidandi, this is very obviously a trend and although it might be less short-lived than some other trends, it will undoubtedly die eventually, its not THAT monumental of an 'accessory'.

    I think it's a trend still on the up. Blogs and designers have been doing it for a while now, but it's only just starting the filter through to the mainstream with balmain rip-off shoes.
    I admit I studded some things the other day and I liked it.

    I feel like this is really on the rise, esp on boots and bags

    I don't think this will ever die since it's a part of so many peoples styles already.. but it definately won't be as 'trendy' from time to time

    I think it's all over the blog-world.. And I'm really starting to get tired of it..
    I've been thinking for some time about doing a DIY project as well. But now not so much..
    perhaps when the trend has died down a little.. I just feel like it's too overrated.

    I think studs/grommets/etc look especially fantastic when paired with florals -- the edginess really offsets the flirty/feminine aspect of anything botanical.

    As a trend, I think it might be a little overdone. However, I have no plans to stick my 3 row pyramid studded belt (or cuff I break out now and again) at the back of the closet.

    It's really everywhere on the internet. So many bloggers have done DIY projects. Actually I had to stud my (otherwise plain and boring) cheap H&M blazer because I would have thrown it out of my closet otherwise. It's really easy but takes forever so it's still not ready to be worn yet. I used brass pyramide studs which I like best atm. Might post pics of the finished result in a little while.
