Rock Solid: 12 Marbled Looks to Wear and Use Now

When we first saw Alexander Wang's debut collection for Balenciaga, featuring a knit top lacquered in white paint that created an effect similar to the cracked, splaying veins of Carrara marble, we didn't realize that it marked the beginning of a big trend. As an antidote to leopard or zebra or even traditional houndstooth, the unpredictable veins of marbleized surfaces give texture to a garment, but also a sophisticated earthiness. It brings gravitas to a look, as in the case of Balenciaga's high tops, and feels fresh in jewelry, like Eddie Borgo's triangular marble earrings for fall. Click on to see twelve pieces that remind us of the heavy, polished, luxurious substance of which the Parthenon and Michelangelo's David are made.
