Spring Summer 2017 gives you some dazzling accessories options – From Lanvin’s statement cuffs to Givenchy’s raw stone neckpieces, here are some of the most coveted jewelry trends this season.
Statement earrings | Artsy earrings are a rage this summer. Leave those demure danglers behind and adorn large chunky earpieces. While Maison Margiela reserved their runway for oversized crystal earpieces at their S/S 17 show, Loewe stuck to gold perfection at their summer offering in Paris and showcased some sharp, geometric earpieces. Proenza Schoulers’ art inspired Calder-style earrings from their S/S 17 show are a summer rage.
Statement cuffs | Bracelets are out and layering on big chunky cuffs are registering a strong presence again. Nicolas Ghesquiere at LV’s S/S17 created cuffs with rope detailing in gold, while in Paris, Jonathan Anderson with his avant-garde aesthetics created cuffs inspired by Roman gladiator costumes. Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant of Courrèges, seemingly inspired by Star Wars for their S/S 17 show created funky silver metallic handcuffs. Think biker chic! Alexander McQueen’s S/S 17 collection comprised of decadent pieces.
Raw stone necklaces | Chunky, solid neckpieces are trending, while feminine necklaces have taken a back seat as of now. Givenchy’s S/S 17 show had models in solid raw stone pendants on their necks. Unfinished, yet chic! Christopher Kane, lauded for his S&M sensibilities, gave his girls neckpieces with multiple raw stones set in metal at his S/S 17 show.
Single oversized earings | Think Coachella meets Cannes. The one earring trend, considered to be a part of the Boho-fashion vocabulary, has now been reinterpreted by some key luxury labels. While Versace for their S/S 17 offering, sent glamazons decked up in signature pub-worthy dresses accessorized with a single oversized earring, J.W Anderson for a change embraced metallics and gave his models serpent-inspired single earrings to go with gold dresses.
Futuristic | To perfect your evenings in one loop, try on earrings cum neckpieces. As the name suggests, this coveted piece is a hybrid between earrings and necklaces. Mary Katrantzou for her S/S17 show returned to her Greek roots and showcased some Palm tree inspired earrings cum neckpieces. The Rodarte sisters took to a more demure route. Their S/S 17 presentation in NYC had beaded and butterfly embellished earrings cum neckpieces. All red carpet worthy.
These brilliant jewelry picks, set against your summer whites can speak volumes of your personal style.
