Ready to translate this season’s trends into jewellery? Let us help you out.
A wave of feminism hit the AW17 catwalk. Celine, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Chloe and Isabel Marant all showcased high powered, considered looks; super suits worn as a suit of armour to protect from tough political times. There is no strict 9-to-5 dress code; this is a new kind of power dressing – stylish, wide-ranging and refreshingly individualistic.
High shine was all over the catwalks. Glittery boots; metallic jackets; slinky chain mail dresses in silver and gold; oversized silver bags; shiny quilted shawls and blankets over tweed suits; metallic details and futuristic fastenings; and planet inspired accessories. Check out the show-stopping Chanel Rocket, complete with actual lift off!
Any colour goes this season, the more intense the better. Embrace bright red (as did Comme Des Garcons and Victoria Beckham) with a pair of flaming red boots; and take your pick out of a number of shades of blue (which apparently matches all skin tones), from cobalt to dusky, as seen at Celine and Bottega Veneta.
Park the “no make-up make-up” – beauty is bright and punchy. A flash of coloured mascara (I have been patiently waiting its re-emergence!); cobalt blue, orange and fuschia eyeliner or shadow; and tangerine lips. No wallflowers here.
They can prise that indigo cotton from our cold dead hands! This season wear the blue material for any and every, occasion. Button-through skirts, oversized jackets, embroidered shirts, high waist jeans, dresses, boilersuits, even trench coats. Stella McCartney and Dior offered a top-to-toe, tongue-in-cheek double-denim look.
