New York Fashion ‘Week’ is almost done (one more day to go!) and Day 8 brought out some great jewelry. Interestingly, the standout pieces were silver on this day. Women’s Wear Daily declared the huge Proenza Schouler orchid necklace pictured above its Accessory of the Day. At Bibhu Mohapatra, the structural silver necklaces by Gemma Redux were well matched to the collection and Dion Lee had some very cool silver pieces that featured pearls.
Gold was not completely left out. Joie opted to use pieces by Jennifer Fisher in a refreshingly spare way, as they are usually styled by the jewelry designer piled sky high. Erickson Beamon appeared on the runway again, this time at Anna Sui, and the pieces could not have been more different than the ones at Elie Tahari the day before. For Sui’s pre-Raphaelite inspired show, it was florals, butterflies and draped gold chains as headpieces and necklaces.
Sort-of jewelry related: I noticed that there was no jewelry to be found at Michael Kors, which I thought was incredibly odd given that he consistently shows it and big gold chains are a favored look. Delivery problems?? Also, the collection by Osklen was inspired entirely by gemstones although they only appeared in print form, not as jewelry.
