Fresh off the catwalk: Spring/Summer 2017 Jewellery Trends

Posted on

 

In Milan we saw outstandingly detailed earrings at Gucci, and in Paris we were treated to minimal (note: wearable) chokers at Christian Dior; the Spring Summer 2017 collection were full of jewellery delights. Our stylists have curated the key jewellery looks shown by fashion houses across all four cities, and these are the jewellery trends that we predict will be making their mark in 2017.

 


 

ELABORATE EARRINGS

 

Bold, oversized, statement earrings have no intention of coming off the catwalk. Moving away from sculptural yet blank designs (minus Proenza Schouler’s conceptual earrings), we saw a more expressive and detailed approach to ear embellishment. Gucci stuck to their more is more mantra, offering incredibly detailed and ornate designs glistening with jewels. Rodarte’s earrings were whimsical and delicate, single earrings fell gracefully to the collar bone and we loved the way pairs of earrings looped together with a chain under the chin. Saint Laurent accentuated their monochrome evening collection with colourful long tassel drop earrings, whilst Marni mismatched vivid floral drop designs with shorter, geometric studs.

CHAIN REACTION

 

From chunky chain necklaces to drapes of fine chainmail, chain jewellery instantly adds a masculine edge to an outfit. Necklaces don’t get much more in-your-face than they did at Prada. Their oversized chains were weighed down by statement medallion-style pendants; our favourite being the vibrant two-tone blue necklace that popped against the monochrome outfit. It was chainmail galore at Lanvin; long necklaces draped and shimmered down the catwalk, whilst chain bracelets elegantly covered the hand. Silver chainmail sits at the core of Versace, and their SS17 collection offered incredibly tactile silver chainmail designs that oozed fluidity and caught the light beautifully.

LONG LIVE THE CHOKER

 

The 90s comeback isn’t going anywhere, as chokers were prominent in collections across all four cities. Dior’s first female creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, created a wearable collection that resembled the women of today, including simplistic (and highly wearable) black chokers that incorporate our undying lust for branded wears. Anna Sui gave chokers a feminine update with her signature butterfly motif, as seen on model of the moment Bella Hadid.

SWEET WRAPPER SHINE

 

Metallic is back, in a big way. Whilst fabrics shone under the lights, jewellery with a sweet wrapper-like shine caught our eye. With an epic catwalk covered in thick molten and gold glitter, Elie Saab got us all starry-eyed over his glitzy disco themed collection. Star drop earrings dangled wildly from ears, golden chain chokers with star accents wrapped around necks and epically oversized pendants fell down past the waistline. At Alexis Mabille, necklaces were laden with bauble-sized bells with a high-shine golden finish. Olivier Rousteing has never been one for small statements; at the Balmain show we saw enormous structured collarbone chokers paired with metallic cuffs. In New York, Marchesa’s unapologetically girly, embellished gowns were accented with jewel encrusted hair pins and elaborate drop earrings.
