The habits of celebrities have time and again shaped the fashion landscape of mainstream culture. Identifying trends on the red carpet and stocking your store accordingly is a sure way to maintain relevance and skilfully connect with your consumer base.
Diamonds, brooches and watches were popular fashion accessories among male A-lister celebrities and featured strongly on the red carpet this year.

Cartier was popular, with Edgar Ramirez, Austin Butler and Paul Mescal all donning statement brooches on their suit jackets. Watches remain a consistent statement piece of the stylish celebrity wardrobe – an easily identifiable silhouette of technology, history and evolving design.

Emerging back on trend in watches are diamond hour markers, as seen on Pete Davidson’s Rolex at the Met Gala, while durable and practical materials featured on many contemporary timepieces, such as black ceramic and steel paired together on David Harbour’s Chanel J12.

A-List celebrities are at the forefront of leading trends in the men’s jewellery industry. Embodying unique designs and bold features, previously more feminine styles such as diamonds and brooches have been enhancing the straight, masculine lines of men’s formal wear this season.
