Welcome Back the Brooch!
Posted by on
There’s an unspoken inventory of fashion paraphernalia that has become synonymous with women of the 70-plus age bracket—seamed stockings, a hobble skirt, cashmere crewneck sweaters in varying shades of lilac—and, of course, a brooch. So it came as quite the surprise when various iterations of the granny-like pin started cropped up all over the runways. Making appearances in several spring and fall shows this year for high fashion lines like Celine, Prada, Oscar De La Renta, Dulce and Gabbana, and in Vera Wang's yearly "Resort" show, this versatile little gem has been proving over an over that everything old can indeed be made new again!
Vouge has recently been seen to call brooches one of "The Top 12 Accessories Trends for Fall 2015", and to say in their January issue that "...the brooch is making a surprisingly chic comeback." and saying that it's once again "..the cool versatile piece we can't wait to pin on.". Wow! In light of all this attention that brooches are getting these days, can you really not be a part of such a big deal comeback?
