These couture collars bridge the gap between avant-garde art fashion, necklaces, neck pieces and shawls. They accentuate the face, draw attention away from the lower body and are just plain eye-popping. From Renaissance-inspired neck ruffles to feathered collars that frame the neckline, these couture collars have to be seen to be believed.

Implications - The "collared shirt" gets a whole new meaning with these couture collars, as designers incorporate different forms of architecture and odd mediums into each individual piece. Revamping the classic professional collared style, these designs are definitely a precursor to the potential eccentric yet intriguing workwear pieces which will feature a wild and over-the-top touch in the near future.
