Typically, when one thinks of a grommet, industrial hardware pieces quickly come to mind. While grommets are really just that, we see them being utilized in new ways in the design realm. 

We've already seen studs have their shining moment, adorning everything from footwear to jewelry, handbags to eyewear, even in housewares. But today it is all about the grommet. We spotted these metal rings in collections including Mugler, Marc Jacobs, Zimmerman, Herve Leger, Diesel Black Gold. Even designer Anthony Vaccarello incorporated the hardware into his pieces, but with a new play on the original shape (stars, anyone?).

While Vaccarello designed star-shaped grommets, other designers played with the sizing and the placement on their garments. Herve Leger ornamented a pair of fishnet tights with small grommets down the front and center, adding a bit of flair to average leggings. The outerwear pieces at Marc were also covered with the silver rings in varying sizes, further confirming that Fall 2015 is ready to embrace these metal embellishments.  

Grommets have been spotted not only on the runways and in the streets but on furnishing and decorative home goods as well. For those of you who tend to gravitate towards industrial details, unique hardware and appreciate a more rough and tough aesthetic, we've selected a variety of shoppable products especially for you.

From a uniquely shaped, modern, LED light chandelier to leather grommet-bordered place mats and throw pillows, these interior products are getting a rebellious boost. 

What we appreciate most is that the grommet is not merely being used in its original metal ring form, but is being re-imagined to take on new shapes, ultimately resurfacing as a fresh textile. It is truly today's fun and new approach to embellishment and decoration.
