While gem studding may not sound like the most masculine of embellishments, its runway rendition recalls testosterone-fueled templates - from punky emblems to matador preenings. The trademark silver studs of the punk era go luxe and come bejeweled, simultaneously reworking a DIY aesthetic and giving a street smart slant on luxury embellishment.

Dark navy and black grounds showcase a rainbow effect of gemstones; emerald, ruby and sapphire jewels are panel placed on the hem and cuffs of a tux at Galliano or amethyst gems trim the yoke style lines of a boxy cotton jacket at Prada.

For the ultimate in bling, gold studding on black has glamorous evening appeal. Rhinestones are applied around the hip of black tailored trousers at Rynshu or badges and pins form a luxury punk-esque cross on a sweater at Christian Lacroix.

A palette of red and black offers a rebellious air for this trimming trend, recalling a modern matador with black star gems on a red jacket at Givenchy (complete with nose rings) as well as tonal red on red studs on a brogue hi top. Prada’s golf bag introduces a high fashion sports statement.

Alternatively, go cream or neutral for a sartorial chic take on classic rock ‘n’ roll studding, as applied all-over on clutch bags at Prada and Versace, and on tailoring with gems placed over check patterns at Thom Browne.
