L-R: Lyn Devon; Thom Browne; DKNY [top]; Victoria Beckham [bottom]; Alexander Wang
Large, small, bifurcated, two-tone, solo or clustered, monochrome or multi-coloured – if one component dominated the AW15/16 catwalks, it was the orb.
Adopting a hard-edged sensibility, designers such as Thom Browne, Lyn Devon and Alexander Wang looked to ball bearings for inspiration, winding strands of gleaming black balls around necks and wrists.
Pearls were a popular choice for some designers, with Victoria Beckham clustering them on rippling cuffs.
Interpret the look: The orb is timelessly chic and highly commercial so, however you introduce it, it will be a winner. Add a fresh touch to this much loved icon by mixing and matching sizes, combining different colours, graduating sizes or arranging in random clusters.
