The recently revived choker continued to be a feature of many AW15 LFW runway shows. Julien MacDonald kept it simple with retro-esque thick, black material chokers while Vivienne Westwood Red Label tapped into the brand’s punk heritage with a selection of chokers and short colliers that took inspiration from dog collars, tools, chains and spikes.

Also at the avant garde end of the spectrum was Giles’ gothic Victoriana show that included a standalone ruff choker and ruff cuffs.

The catwalks for AW15 were awash with all-black ensembles, and some designers extended this theme to jewellery. Julien MacDonald created darkly alluring jewels to complement black and jewel-toned eveningwear that included necklaces and earrings made out of glossy, blackened metal wound into fluid lines.
