Jewelry Trend Forecast 2015
What better way to forget about the cold winter than to dream about Spring? That’s what we are doing here at Bija. The days are already growing longer (A minute more daylight per day? Had you noticed?) and though Spring is still a while away, it always feels nice to anticipate and plan for the future.
According to designers in New York, Milan, and Paris who debuted their lines during the recent Fashion Week Spring 2015 (Sept 4 – Oct 1, 2014), you can look forward to bracelets and more bracelets – from stackable bangles, to bold cuffs, to feathers. It’s all about the wrist, the wrist, the wrist.
The clothing trends we spotted were varied … the models were striding the runways in denim, florals, fringes and gingham. We saw lace, linen, high wastes, wide legs with wedges, leggings with capes, bold colours together with soft ethereal hues.
Some of the prominent 2015 jewelry themes we couldn’t help but notice:
Dainty & Delicate Estate
Spring 2015 runway jewelry trends included an assortment of delicate pieces that drew from feminine inspirations. Yves Saint Laurent featured dainty necklaces and heart pendants, in keeping with its decidedly feminine prints. Dolce & Gabbana adorned necklines in gold pendants and earrings while Versace featured chokers and medallions on fine chains. Layered necklines were seen everywhere. One necklace short, one longer, one even longer. We liked the look of a fabric choker with a dainty necklace.
Glamorous, Romantic Gems
Crystal embellishments were everywhere. Ralph Lauren included pendant crystal earrings with detailed settings that blurred the line between fine jewelry and costume jewelry. The gingham-clad collection of the late Oscar de la Renta featured earrings in pink, white, and black crystal set in gold. The legendary fashion designer dedicated his career to making women feel stylish and sophisticated—and his final collection is no exception.
Bracelets stole the show on the Chanel runway. Bangles featured brightly colored leather, catchy slogans and inspiring messages: “Make Fashion Not War” and “Ladies First”. Valentino included a mix and match set of gold rings, embellishing each with marine motifs such as seashells and sea urchins. And Dior arranged duo silver metallic hoop earrings for a subtle play on stacked jewelry.
Brass & Silver
The metals of the moment shaped into equestrian motifs. This decorative jewelry is truly classic and timeless. Hermès silver jewelry integrated elements of bridles, bits, and reins in its design. Gucci followed suit with its iconic horse bit in a silver bracelet complementing ‘70s inspired ensembles.
Spring Fashion Week is the perfect place to spot the upcoming season’s emerging fashions and jewelry trends.
