This season, designer fashion seems to fall into two distinct categories. They are either quiet and understated in their appeal—think the likes of Totême, Jil Sander and The Row, which create low-key luxury pieces. Then, serving as the antithesis to this, you have the brands that are unapologetically embracing their bold side by making the most of their immediately recognisable logos.
Over the course of the last couple of seasons, fashion houses have been returning to their archives, seeking inspiration from their respective logos and monograms from the past. This inspiration has been evident on clothes, bags, belts and even shoes. (I legitimately can’t get Gucci’s crystal-embellished GG mesh shoes out of my mind.) Now, however, it seems that both celebrities and influencers alike are getting their logo fixes in another way.
Logo designer earrings certainly aren’t a new trend, but I haven’t seen this level of interest in the brazen jewellery since the ’80s, during which Chanel’s interlocking C’s decorated the ears of every well-to-do woman. Today, the trend is just as standout, with the likes of Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa casually donning impressively large designer-logo earrings for, well, just about every outing. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez keeps things refreshingly on-brand, opting instead for hoop earrings featuring brand names.
The beauty of this trend lies in the fact that, yes, while you can certainly invest in new designer earrings from a plethora of premium brands—think Miu Miu, Prada and JW Anderson—but that there are lots of preloved and vintage designer-logo earrings to consider, too.
