Even the Guys Are Wearing Chokers at Louis Vuitton

Watch out, Taylor Swift.

Back in March, Taylor Swift wrote in an Instagram caption, "I feel like maybe chokers are the new flower crowns?" And she wasn’t wrong as a number of actresses (Emma Roberts, Vanessa Hudgens) and models (Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid) embraced the trend during Coachella.

Since then the fashion set has continued to wear chic collars while out and about and on the red carpet (remember Olivia Wilde's Neil Lane choker at the Oscars?).

While the ladies are all about the '90s trend, we had yet to see the guys hop on board. That is, until Thursday, when Louis Vuitton men's artistic director Kim Jones sent a number of male models down the Paris runway in chokers.

A few models donned a LV monogrammed, studded choker while other catwalkers were seen in a lock-and-chain version. There was even one style in plaid that matched a model's sleeveless top. 

Perhaps we'll see Jaden Smith, a face of Louis Vuitton, rocking one of these necklaces soon. Because if there's anyone who could pull it off, it's the gender-bending trendsetter.
