It’s all about the choker

Yes, yes, we know… the market is oversaturated with chokers and is it a trend that is already over? But hold on: A choker is much more than just a trend — it is a piece of jewellery with an old history, so there’s no shame in indulging and investing in this must-have piece and even wearing it when the hype has settled.

A fabulous choker or ribbon flatters the neck, works almost like a frame for your face and gives every outfit a certain edge. Just imagine a lacy summer dress with a strong black leather choker or chain. Contrast always works.

We love the idea of cutting thin silk ribbons from a silk scarf and tying them in big bows in the back. Or you could also buy them ready-made these days from Dior or Saint Laurent in IRMA’s shop.
