Spring / Summer 2017 Jewelry Forecast
10.10.16


New York Fashion Week came and went in a blur, however it's the aftermath that proves most interesting. We've unearthed five jewelry trends from the SS17 showings. Ones that are wearable (but also daring) and won't disappear before there's time to adopt them. This coming season, prepare to see...

SHOULDER SKIMMERS
SS17 is full of oversized earrings of collarbone dusting material. Thankfully, many pairs managed to seem elegant and less showy than expected, as was demonstrated by Oscar de la Renta, Valentino and Saint Laurent. Jennifer Fisher's shiny, silver hoops for Monse SS17 were as big as they come but also lightweight. A continued preference for off-shoulder clothing, as well as the recent love affair with one-sleeve designs, means this trend is easier to wear than first thought. 

ART SCHOOL 
A certain oversized necklace stole the show at Prada. Covered entirely in jewels, with flashings of turquoise, red and blue, the piece loudly stated its art deco inspirations. The trend was also seen at Loewe and Proenza Schouler, who both showed graphic, cut out shapes.


PRIZED MEDALLIONS
Long medallion-style necklaces were seen at Alexander McQueen, Giambattista Valli and Etro. Valli's version was an extension of his love for classic romanticism. The heavy-set necklaces looked as if they'd been plucked straight from a vault of precious heirloom jewels, lending the wearer a sense of power and protection. 

STONE THERAPY
Cuts of raw crystals and minerals appeared at Marni, Stella McCartney and Givenchy. At the latter, the mineral focus went into overdrive, with super-sized chain links attached to a round slice of stone.

DARK ROMANCE
Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli showed a vibrant collection full of pink, red and fuchsia. Balancing the floaty romantic dresses, his interest in medieval art shined through, with delicate chain-link mini-bags, silver sword earrings and metal necklaces that reminded us of battle armour.
