2017’s fashion year has really flourished into a large-scale blast from the past. Taking-on vintage graphics, denim embroidery, fringe bangs, velour, terry, ear jewels and XXL sizing, twenty-seventeen has made evident the homage to 80’s glam.
In the spotlight, chainmail has arguably become 2017’s biggest red carpet fashion trend. Having sprung from the grave, chainmail sprinkled their way back into the hearts of the most elite and into our wish list.
