Fall / Winter 2016 Jewelry Forecast
18.03.16

 

The recent collections were a true champagne feast for those who find themselves noting runway accessories just as much as the clothes. Below we reflect on the strongest concepts seen, from architectural cuffs to strands of pearls that appease our love of vintage renaissance. 

FW 2016 trends Love and Object

Asymmetric earrings - As Stella McCartney’s girls walked, delicate linked hoop earrings were swinging from their ears. The look was purposely off-centre. One ear sported just one or two hoop links, while the other featured as many as four.  Elsewhere, the deliberate imbalance continued with Anthony Vaccarello, Loewe, Isabel Marant and Mulberry also in favour. Off the runway, guests were seen sporting similar looks. It seems the fashion world is requesting us all to adopt the quirky trend
this autumn.

Pearls - Strings of vintage pearls have come back into the fashion fore, worn single strand and layered. Chanel looped them over the bow-tied blouse for an elegant yet insouciant air. To pull pearls into the daily wardrobe debate, our advice would be to pair a single simple strand with military style tailoring and patched denim jackets, as seen
at Miu Miu.

Cuffs - Always a personal favourite at Chanel, the heavy-weight cuff was seen clasped over top of sleeves and gloves at numerous shows throughout fashion month. How they all got this memo, we shall never know. In keeping with preferences for glitz and old Hollywood glamour, gold cuff work was evident in places. Saint Laurent and Loewe were both in favour of this knockout look. 
Oversized chokers - Love and Object’s long time admiration for the often socially maligned choker is now validated. This accoutrement is officially back, and the best in show are rocking them in a variety of ways. While intricate, princess-worthy designs were spotted at Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and Lanvin, an urban warrior style emerged at Balmain, Loewe and Alexander Wang. How to wear it? By day, we like to pair the choker with a high neck white tee shirt and jeans. After dark, bare the shoulders and go strapless to give the dramatic accessory room to shine.

Baroque - Departing from the previous season’s love of minimal design, baroque sensibilities were on show during FW16 events. Material choices angled towards texture, with silk velvets, detailed embroidery and ornate patterns that reminded us of gilded sculpture. Jewelry was as intricate as the clothing you are suggested to wear with it. Hyper feminine chandelier earrings, necklaces and brooches stole the show at Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. Meanwhile, a Victorian gothic rock star vibe was carousing about at Saint Laurent and Roberto Cavalli.
