On the catwalk of the French maison they showed earcuffs that also act as a clip to tie the hair or pairs of earrings to wear on the same ear. Another great proponent of the trend is Olivier Rousteing from Balmain, which between armors that recall fencing and biker style, presented mono earrings in the shape of a padlock, complete with a key inserted. Accessories that do not go unnoticed, even on their own.
