Spring 2014 Runway Jewelry Trends

Fashion Week/Month is over and it’s time to distill everything that has stomped down the runway. There were a few clear trends, most of which was already established by the end of New York Fashion Week. Black for spring was the biggest one by far, followed closely by use of pearls, statement collars, matching bracelets on each wrist, and primary colors.

Paris Fashion Week Day 9 – Spring 2014 Jewelry

The last day of Paris Fashion Week (and fashion month) has wrapped up with a mix of jewelry. There were a couple black bangles at Louis Vuitton in nearly all-black Marc Jacob’s exit show, Zadig & Voltaire went full rocker-chic in silver, white and a bit of gold, Hermès showed leather (mais, bien sûr) and classic enamel, while Miu Miu suspended paint-like swirls in lucite and showed colorful bangles with big gold hardware.

Look for a post tomorrow on all the runway trends for spring 2014 and another the following day on my personal favorite pieces.

On the second-to-last day of Paris Fashion Week there were far fewer shows, but some of the best jewelry so far.

The Chanel show was probably the last bit of evidence anyone needs in order to know that pearls are very much having a moment (don’t forget about the V&A Pearls exhibition!) There were so many great looks: huge asymmetrical necklaces, square cubes on rings, a pearl-encrusted ‘Lego’ bag with a pearl strap (very reminicent of the Thakoon look that was so popular). I’m going to go ahead and predict that these pieces will be all over the March 2014 fashion magazines.

A mish-mash of cultural references and a whole lot of gold were on display at both Valentino and Alexander McQueen. In the case of Valentino there was a mystical quality with the zodiac symbols and scarbs, while at McQueen it was more of a warrior princess vibe.

Also continuing with the gold was Valentin Yudashkin in 80’s big earring splendor and an interesting idea from Jean-Charles de Castelbajac: wearing a necklace under the sheer layer of a dress. Love it.

Day 7 of Paris Fashion Week took away much of the color seen previously and left some lovely hardware. Giambattista Valli showed some beautiful molten-looking gold cuffs and necklaces, while Elie Saab and Veronique Branquinho focused on big cuffs on each wrist. At Saint Laurent, there were two opposing jewelry looks. One one hand you had over-sized silver chains, and on the other was the blink-and-you-miss-it whisper of gold or crystal jewelry. At the sportswear-inspired Sacai show, your average gym whistle got a chic makeover in black or gold (on a gold chain no less) and ‘sweatbands’ were black with gold hardware.
