Favourite Jewellery Looks from New York Fashion Week

Posted on


Want a run down on the standout jewellery looks from the Spring 2017 ready-to-wear collections at New York Fashion Week? From Proenza Schouler’s unapologetically oversized earrings, to Rodarte’s whimsical and floaty jewels; these are the looks that caught our eye.



Big statement earrings have been around for the past few years and don’t appear to be leaving anytime soon. These were accompanied by stacks of bangles, statement chokers and whimsical earrings, connected by a chain hanging under the chin.


Proenza Schouler took the statement earring to the next level, with their shoulder skimming chandelier earrings. However, something you may not have noticed under the oversized, conceptual earrings were the flashes of yellow and white paint on some of the models ear lobes. These bright swatches of pigment played off the huge monochrome earrings that fell down towards the shoulder, complementing the young collection in a punchy palette of primary colours. Of course ear makeup isn’t a new trend; we saw it at spring 2015 shows and then again at Opening Ceremony’s fall 2016 show, but whilst it’s great on the catwalk, we’re not sure how quickly it’s going to catch on in everyday life.

Altuzarra’s fruity spring collection was covered in everyone’s favourite emoji - the pineapple. For us though, their vibrant hoop earrings were the real scene-stealers. Single coloured earrings came in a bold palette of neon yellow, bright white, powdery blue and true red, and the spiral design added interest to the classic hoop design.


Summer black has been a running theme in New York, so it was refreshing to see pops of bright primary colours. Another show embracing colour was Jeremy Scott, who accessorised his ‘80s inspired collection with single and mismatched neon cone earrings and bangles. Chokers were seen throughout Anna Sui’s collection, from dainty and colourful designs incorporating her classic butterfly, to chunky black chokers with an almost gothic aesthetic.

One of our favourite collections at New York was Rodarte. Referencing the 1973 Spanish film, Spirit of the Beehive, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy stuck to their punky roots with a twist of a more romantic aesthetic. Combining prairie with Victoriana, dreamy dresses with layers of ruffles and lace were beautifully complimented with jewellery: bangles were layered, rings dangled and earrings linked together under the chin. Bangles in mismatched designs, textures and metals were stacked up the models forearms, adding edge to predominantly floaty looks. Embellished rings depicted the charming scene of a bee on a bejewelled flower, which elegantly dangled down over the fingers.


However, the most noteworthy accessories were the intricate ear adornments; we saw single earrings that fell gracefully down to the collarbone and pairs of earrings that looped together with a delicate and feminine chain under the chin. Their jewellery was innovative and interesting, whilst retaining a level of femininity and ethereal beauty. Continuing the feminine theme and inspired by the colours of the sky from dusk to dawn, Marchesa’s collection was a paint box of soft pinks, lilacs and light blues. Their unapologetically girly, embellished gowns were accented with jewel encrusted hair pins and elaborate drop earrings.
