seashells by the seashore Michael Kors set the tone in New York with his beach towels stamped with the MK Beach Club logo, held by models that wore glistening shell-shaped rings and pendants.
Etro made the temperature rise with their surf spirit runway, inspired by Californian vibes and complete with shell earrings bordered by pearls. Joseph Altuzarra took us on a Caribbean escape and went for a more audacious look with shredded belts and fishnet dresses, accessorized with crafted shell necklaces.
Getting an ear (cuff) full this season, earrings took on a new dimension. Margiela went simple, Mugler loved a futuristic look and Fendi was a fan of sportswear. Our next jewelry must-haves are the XXL ear-wear at Balmain and the futuristic eighties look at Miu Miu, which seemed to defy gravity and form a type of couture armor.
Avant-garde revolution’s the moment every jewelry enthusiast lives for: a designer comes along with an ultra-creative twist on regular accessories and changes the industry standard. This season three avant-garde propositions took our fancy; the neon reinterpretation of bourgeois earrings at Marine Serre, the neck brace choker at Loewe
Pile on the necklaces accumulation of necklaces that would thrill any jewelry lover. Layering was perfected by Paco Rabanne this season, with medallions designed by Charlotte Chesnais, leading the charge. Mixing and matching gave a vintage allure at Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli utilized unusual stones for standout
Crescent moon hoopsThe must-have accessory at Valentino, worn by 90s model Kristen McMenamy, golden crescent-moon hoops were an unexpected trend this season. A variation on the hoops that we saw this summer, Prabal Gurung updated designer Tasaki’s usual pearl look with balancing crescents and at Y/Project XXL hoops seemed to
A night out on the town who needs a disco ball when you’ve got these earrings? Givenchy decided to emulate mobiles which are sure to catch every light they’re under. Balenciaga opted for super-cute sparkling hearts and Jacquemus designed literal glitter balls that will liven up any dancefloor.
All chained up Virgil Abloh seems to be obsessed with chains, which have been seen at Off-White’s menswear show as well as a Louis Vuitton and even Off-White’s womenswear in XXL versions. The key to their success? The industrial look that leans itself to layering or can equally be worn as a statement piece.Photo: Paco Rabanne, Marni, and Off-White
Say your name logo looks are sticking around for a little longer. Chanel dominated the name-dropping jewelry look, with sparkling earrings spelling out their name (one syllable in each ear). The Carrie Bradshaw Effect took over at Balenciaga, with dainty logo necklaces, and at Burberry, gold earrings offered a more subtle to rock the
You and who’s arm cuff? A year ago, Natacha Ramsay-Levi revived our love for this ancient-inspired accessory at her first Chloé show. Since then the arm cuff has flown the flag for Chloé. At Saint Laurent, a bejeweled serpent arm cuff was spotted, glittering under the night sky in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, likewise, at Giambattista Valli, rawer more natural stones stole the show and arty sun-shapes were seen at Rodarte.
Second wind Double usage accessories were everywhere this season paired with an overtone of fun. At Burberry, we spotted the passport/necklace combination and then there were fork earrings and even a purse that moonlights as a bracelet (try losing that on a night out). Designers gave new meaning to menial objects, creating charming and super playful accessories. Our personal favorite was the komboloï, seen at Tory Burch, which is a Greek necklace thought to possess anti-stress qualities
Wild Wild West We hardened ourselves in the Western wind that took over the Fall/Winter 2018-2019 runways, and it appears this trend is going nowhere. Feathers aplenty were aligned with a vibe of independent style at Louis Vuitton, Longchamp and even took on tribal at Loewe.
The ‘so fetch’ 00s revival Marni and Stella McCartney had ankle bracelets, Etro had an abundance of surfer necklaces and Chloé went full-on 00s with toe rings. Goodbye 90s revival! A new nostalgic wave is breaking.
