Century Choker has different meanings in different times. Early in the French Revolution in 1798, females wore red ribbon ties on the neck to express sympathy and respect for the dead on the guillotine. This is the prototype of choker. In the 19th century, such necklaces were popular with royals of European countries. It is said that this tidal current was started by Anne Boleyn (Queen of England) and Alexandra (Princess of Denmark). In the famous portrait of Anne Boleyn, she wears a pearl necklace. Moreover, the necklace is decorated with a delicate B – the first letter of her maiden name. As for Alexandra, she often wore a choker constituted by pearls and velvet to hide the scar on her neck. Because of them, choker was popular with royal women. Hence, exquisitely made necklaces became accessories symbolizing royalty and wealth in the upper class in Europe. All these chokers were individually customized. They fitted the front opening of wearers perfectly. 21

TIPS 1/ SIMPLE VERSION CHOKER The simplest method to wear chokers is to wear a single choker to match the modeling. To take the street snap, models generally wear a black choker. Nevertheless, such basic chokers are selected mostly because they are not eye-catching. They will match the dress well. If clean and simple fashions are preferred, it is recommended to choose the chokers with the strong sense of design. In this case, chokers in different colors or special in details will be a good choice for your style.


TIPS 2 / PENDENT CHOKER Black chokers can be decorated with vintage style, rock style or Gothic style pendants. With unusual appearances, they are suitable for girls who are trying to be cool. Take Natalie Portman for example. She wore a necklace throughout the movie LĂŠon. Since she acted as a rebellious maverick in the movie, many girls who are fond of unique clothing have fallen in love with such chokers. To be romantic and graceful, it is a good choice to decorate purple, white or light colored ribbons with brightly colored pendants. 26

The greatest characteristic of choker is that it with can be combined other ornaments o It allows people t make combinations creatively.

TIPS 3 / MIXED UP Choker is so short that it fails to reach the clavicle. A choker follows the contours of the neck, just like a collar. Thus, it will not be incompatible with other necklaces. Generally, chokers go well with both short and long necklaces. If they are well coordinated, they will be quite chic and fashionable. In addition, it is possible to combine three necklaces together as long as they are consistent in style.


TIPS 4 / WOVEN CHOKER Chokers can exhibit elegant visual effects by weaving, even if they have no pendants. Openwork patterns make people feel pure and fresh. However, the braided shapes are fairly complex. Fortunately, there are many teaching videos on the Internet. It is possible to DIY a choker as long as one prepares materials in adv-ance and follows the instruction.

What are extra-long sleeves ? Extra-long sleeves are associated with a popular fashion brand - Vetements. There is no doubt that extra-long sleeves are the most representative visual symbols of Vetements. Many brands have begun to imitate Vetements and manufacture such extra-long sleeves. To understand the fashion aroused by Vetements, it is better to trace the origin first.


2000 2001



Vetements clothes were inspired by the iconic design of Martin Margiela in 1990s. The biggest achievement of Margiela is that he designed oversized clothes and maintained the tension and outline of the clothes visually. As a master of Deconstruction, Martin Margiela expresses his uninhibited character and advocacy of deconstructionism by means of design. Such philosophy runs through the process of brand design. Maison Margiela’s influence on the fashion industry comes not from the ability to make new ideas, but from remodeling orthodox or traditional women’s garments (T-shirts, dresses,sweaters) ,emphasizes on individuals and the uniqueness of each garment. 78
