The Accessories team offers a snippet of our new jewelry specific street report from the S/S12 fashion weeks, captured on the streets of London, Milan, Paris and New York. We have highlighted snapshots of our favorite emerging jewelry trends spotted adorning the international fashion elite.
Bejeweled Baroque statement pieces, and oversized baubles created maximum impact and stood out against simple ensembles while ethnic charm cited Middle Eastern, Indian and African traditional crafts as major influences. The choker spills over from the runway to the street as a sophisticated, contemporary choice in cool metals or with fetish undertones.
Enormous earrings shifted focus to the ears this season in tassel, encrusted and opulent pendant forms. Leather wrist bands with weighty hardware highlight a new masculine look, with a minimal sensibility.
The bracelet ring emerges as a new item, set to be picked up as a key Juniors look for next Summer alongside curated collections of statement rings.
