Although in many ways minimalism ruled on the runways this summer, there were hints of embellishment here and there that had my DIY loving heart a flutter. Isabel Marant was one designer that was able to (as usual) inspire more than a handful of summer projects. What particularly caught my eye was the cowboy/americana inspired jeans, dresses and shorts – with small dome shaped studs applied in wave like patterns. A far cry from the rows of pyramid studs we saw a few seasons ago, to me it was a reminder that just when you think a certain DIY trend is about to exit stage left, a designer comes along and tweaks it – to the resounding joy of DIYers everywhere. So what do you think of dome studded pieces – will you be making or buying (or neither) this summer?
