London Fashion Week Men’s SS20 comes to a close today, and whilst we cannot wait to see the trailblazing menswear trends at Pitti Uomo this week, it would be criminal not to celebrate the creative and fresh jewellery looks exhibited in London over the weekend. From audacious pearl necklaces to understated layered pendants, men are pushing the boundaries of accessorization with confidence and originality.
On the runway, Charles Jeffrey set jewellery standards sky-high in his typical unapologetic and intrepid manner. With charm necklaces and black hand harnesses, the play between punk and pop formed a collection which was just as much wearable as it was playful. Charms definitely formed a discernible theme through the weekend, adorning Iceberg’s collection and spotted among many street style aficionados.
Peruse the best dressed men as seen on the streets of London over the weekend for some jewellery inspiration to take your look from weak to chic.
Never break the chain (@harryjcrum)
Chain jewellery remains a strong staple accessory for men and women alike. Versatile and chic, a striking chain necklace will add an industrial edge to any outfit. Creative consultant and stylist Harry Crum elevates his Shoreditch street style with an oversized chain necklace and silver ring. Proving that just a few accessories can imbue your look with just the right amount of detail, Crum emanates strength and confidence with this sleek look.
The gem of 2019 (@danijelvukoja)
Pearls are back with an iridescent vengeance this season, as shown by the endlessly stylish Danijel Vukoja. This trailblazing fashion editor is steps ahead of the game, adorning his fashion week look with an elegant collar of pearls. What was once your grandmother’s snubbed accessory is now one of the most-loved gemstones of 2019. So take a leaf out of Danijel’s style book and invest in a piece of jewellery that will set you apart from the rest.
A nod to the 70s (@leebothestampede)
70s silhouettes. Audacious prints. Layered gold chains. There’s nothing not to adore about model and DJ Leebo Freeman’s cultivated ensemble. I spotted Freeman’s photo on my Instagram feed a few times over the weekend. The textured gold suit glowing at golden hour was enough to command a second glance. Yet Freeman’s chic accessories - the gold coin accents and bold chains - proved once again how a look is made truly authentic through one’s jewellery.
Cherry-picked prints (@soy_raka)
An unbuttoned leopard print shirt and snakeskin boots weren’t an iconic duo until Felipe stepped onto the streets of Shoreditch. This trailblazing content creator set the bar high this weekend with his fierce and confident ensembles. This particular look, featuring an array of silver accessories, elevated the playful mismatched prints to sophisticated standards. If there’s one style tip to see you through the season, invest in some knuckle candy and the confidence will follow - as demonstrated by Felipe.
Silver stacks (@jnrchoi)
Gold jewellery has soared in popularity over the past year. However, model and musician Junior Choi brings silver back in a crisp ensemble of cool blue hues and endless poise. Dressed in a Chalayan Studio suit, Choi offsets the striking silhouette with multi-length chains that emanate industrial finesse. Follow this trailblazing model for classic fashion prowess with a modern edge.
Knuckle dusters (@dannylomass)
International model Danny Lomas showcases his considered approach to fashion through an array of golden rings. Wearing a striking military jacket balanced by an elegant polka dot scarf, Danny channels confidence and class with his signature accents of detail. Dust your knuckles in stacked rings and strong signets to recreate Danny’s debonair style.
Consult the colour wheel (@yumasui)
A pop of colour is often the saving grace for many outfits. But for the extravagantly stylish Yu Masui, a pop (or six) of colour is the solid foundations of his provocative and surreal style. Once cannot help but feel uplifted by Yu Masui’s refreshing approach to fashion. Carving a signature style that’s authentic but not overdone can feel challenging. However if you’re following this fashion trailblazer, top-notch fashion inspiration is but two clicks away. I love that Yu’s attention to the smallest detail even caters to his love of colour. Combining the incredible Alan Crocetti’s jewellery pieces with lime-coloured gemstones, Yu ensures his fashion finesse extends head-(to ear)-to-toe.
Tease with pearls (@tano_nota)
There’s one key element a man must emanate when wearing pearl jewellery - confidence. Pearl’s are 2019’s hottest gemstone, and you most likely saw it on Tano first. This creative has been repping his signature string of pearls for over a year, preempting one of 2019’s biggest men’s jewellery trends. Invest in the world’s most-loved gemstone this season for a fashion-forward look that keeps your style one step ahead of the game.
