It’s London Fashion Week again, and although shows have barely finished, the jewellery trends are already clear. Here are the top 3…
1) Mismatched/single earrings
Undoubtedly the runaway craze for designers this Spring/Summer Fashion Week, mismatched or single statement earrings have been everywhere on the London catwalks. From enormous, single works of ear-art at Fyodor Golan and Burberry to dainty mismatches at Simone Rocha and Mary Katrantzou, and large, graphic singles at Paula Knorr to Eudon Choi’s more delicate geometrics, this trend clearly isn’t going anywhere next season…
2) Minimal/no jewellery
This LFW, a lot of designers have chosen to forgo jewellery altogether (boo, hiss). Designers as different as Anya Hindmarch, Huishn Zhang, Chalayan, and Richard Malone had one thing in common: they kept the focus on the clothes with their stripped-back looks.
3) Chunky necklaces
A few designers have decided to buck the earrings-or-nothing trend with some serious statement necklaces. Topshop and Christopher Kane went with statement chokers, Roland Mouret with huge bone pendants, and Holly Fulton with bright, 70s-inspired beads.
Bonus list: my top 3 collections so far
Victoriana gorgeousness with some seriously fancy hairclips I’m definitely going to attempt to copy for work…
The whole collection looks like a 30s socialite would wear it on the French Riviera and I bloody love it. It’s full of embroidery, sequins, and tulle, three of my absolute faves. And, yes, this pick is may partly be because one of the dresses looks a loooot like my wedding dress!
Fashion witch vibes + graphic tees + endless glitter = a no-brainer for my final top 3 choice. I mean, just look at this aesthetic:
I want this entire outfit immediately:
That’s all on Fashion Week. Join me next week for a nostalgic one: the first in my new series exploring the jewellery in Disney films.
