Creating Interest with Spikes

The men's shows are over in Paris and Milan, and couture week has gotten underway in Paris, but I am still looking at all the pieces and trends that went down the runways. Overall, one of my favorite collections was by Fendi. Throughout collections I have noticed one trend: spikes. Usually found on classic pieces, spikes are bringing a modern edge to items such as blazers, bags, and gloves. 

American designer Thom Browne is known for his classic pieces that always embody preppy flare. This blazer by him takes a new perspective with the studs located on the traditional elbow patches and collar. Stellar tailoring and studs are sure to be create an awesome look. 

Burberry Prorsum has been sending stunning coats, bags, and winter accessories down the runway season after season. These gloves are no exception. Burberry took the classic black driving glove and added metal spikes, creating a whole new look for the modern man.

What is your take on spikes- are they in or are they out?
