That line has been crossed before

As have many other lines. This particular line - the hybrid clothing-jewelery line, was crossed long ago, but has started to emerge again by way of young jewelery designers. Seemingly avant-garde, as hip magazines may make it seem - it's not. Almost 20 years ago, circa 1990's, there was Slim Barrett- possibly responsible for the rise in popularity of the tiara in this time period. The jewelery designer collaborated with the likes of Pierre Cardin, Paco Rabanne, Chanel -Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, and Montana and Ungano; and continues designing today.
