Fashion Radar: Studs. Tracing the trend back to Christian Louboutin for Rodarte Fall 2008 Collection

This 80s revival meets metal rock thorn stud trend is currently about to hit the tipping point.   About 2 years ago Rodarte's Fall 2008 runway collection debuted the most killer of shoes:  The thorny, strappy, platform.  Designed in collaboration with Christian Louboutin, this was the day the trend was revealed to the masses. And it took almost two years for it's trending cycle to expand, elaborate and hit the influencers of today. ie: Lauren Conrad, Rihanna, Adam Lambert and now Alicia Keys.   What does this mean?   It means that the tipping point is upon us and will we will now be seeing this trend hit the masses.  Shoes will be the most wearable and mark my words... you will now be seeing them everywhere.   But I imagine we'll be seeing the studded shoulders on jackets.  You know Zara is totally on top of this right now...   Regardless.  Sign me up!  I think it's cool and you've got to be one tough cookie to rock this look with the right confidence and a whole lot of feminine glam...

Please turn your fashion radars on.  And while you're observing this fashion idea.. I'm working on the next one to bring to you!
Fashionably yours,
