I can’t say its original but the mood is decidedly hard-edged for fall 2012 with nail-heads, grommets, and punk-rocker studs decorating bags, shoes and jewelry. It all started when Valentino came out with those studded shoes that wrapped around the ankles. And then Mr Louboutin served up some of his own … or was it simultaneous? For this trend spotter’s eye it was the Valentino shoes a year ago. The hard-edge rocker that it evokes, hit the zeitgeist’s sweet spot. Now everyone is doing it in every incarnation. Just don’t cross your legs with one of the sharp pointy kind. That hurts!
