Where to buy and how to wear the mismatched earrings you've seen at Chanel, Dior, Alexander McQueen and Erdem
Wrong, but right
You know you've had one heck of a good time when you wake up to one less earring than you had on the night before. But that good night can quickly become an anxious morning for those on a fruitless hunt for the missing accessory.
Our suggestion: Let bygones be bygones. Embrace the rebellion and take on the mismatched earrings trend. Kate Moss was quoted saying at the launch of her Ara Vartanian jewellery collection, "Nobody wears pairs of earrings anymore; it's old-fashioned. I like to throw it on, mix-and-match earrings. It's cooler when it's not styled so much." Still not convinced it's a thing? Last year, Sotheby's auctioned off the a killer pair of pear-shaped diamond earrings for a record-breaking US$57.4 million... and they didn't even match in hue. One side was fancy vivid blue, the other, an intense pink.
The great minds at Chanel, Christian Dior, Jacquemus and Alexander McQueen are taking the trend beyond a play of colour in fall/winter 2018, juxtaposing materials, stones precious and otherwise and other miscellaneous trinkets like it doesn't matter. Because it doesn't matter. Cohesion, if desired, can be easily achieved by staying true to a colour scheme or sticking to a theme — for example, moons and stars, edible fruits and geometric shapes. Kick perfection to the curb and open your minds to jewellery designers such as Melissa Joy Manning, Jennifer Fisher and Oscar de la Renta. This is a "wrong" that feels just right.
