Trend Spotting: Tusks + Horns

This season, it’s horns aplenty. Still reeling from the splendor of Faraone Mennella R.F.M.A.S.’s Italian horn necklace (worn for protection), but unable to fund the purchase, I’m happy to see a cornucopia of new horns and tusks. Here are some that I’d love to get my claws on.
