In February Armani Privé featured a bold selection of geometric earrings and beaded headwear in their couture collection. Inspired by the late Bernardo Bertolucci, the collection brought cinematic drama through striking silhouettes and pops of colour. This season, couture took the guise of ultra-feminine patterns and pallet offset with classic tailoring. Dusty pinks and icy blues formed the basis of an ice cream colour scheme, emphasised through flowing tulle textures and transparency. The jewellery - much like last season - was centralised around statement earrings and headpieces. Pastel coloured gemstones and glittering diamonds enhanced the whimsical pearly apparel, transforming the Petit Palais into a fairy tale fantasy.
Fendi’s show took couture pageantry to other-worldly heights. Staged amongst the Ancient Roman ruins directly in front of the Colosseum, Fendi’s couture show was the realisation of Karl Largerfeld’s vision of using this iconic landmark as a backdrop for an iconic collection. Playing out like a Largerfeld biopic, 70s silhouettes and lustrous materials decked the runway as Silvia Venturini Fendi mirrored the Largerfeld legacy within each and every detail. Italian power suits were perfectly complemented by sheer and iridescent Renaissance-style gowns, all tied together through thick gold hoops and boho pendants. 70s accents is a huge trend in the jewellery world right now. Invest in some strong 70s pieces for a cultivated and high-fashion approach to your summer wardrobe.
The Schiaparelli show not only staged the curious and provocative creations of this long-established design house, but also the fresh and anticipated creative direction of Daniel Roseberry. Needless to say, the show did not disappoint. Roseberry drew on Schiaparelli’s lasting relationship with surrealism in new and innovative ways. From kitsch nail art to displaced objects (including a swarm of ladybirds) attendees were given a confident and stimulating insight into the future of Schiaparelli. Roseberry paid an impressive amount of attention to the jewellery he adorned models with. Oversized earrings in spiky and surreal designs underscored the innovative roots of the Italian design house. Blurring the lines between art and fashion, if there’s one thing you can take from this couture collection, it’s to step out of your comfort zone with fearless jewellery.
