Breast Is Best

There's a theory in fashion that during times of global uncertainty and economic strife, tailoring become popular. Something to do with the way structured clothes induce a sense of cosseting, security and a control. With so many variations on the breastplate-style necklace coming down the catwalks, is ss2011's jewellery reflecting a similar desire for protection?

In some cases designers have gone a step further, creating garments that incorporate jewellery-inspired breastplates directly into the bodice.
