AW14 TREND: Ancient Cultures

One of the biggest jewellery trends visible on the AW14 catwalk was the dark glamour of ancient cultures, taking inspiration from Asian, Persian and African designs. The mixture of materials: pearl, crystals and chains, created lavish designs rich in texture and narrative. Designers inspired by the past opulence created pieces of contemporary glamour. Balmain’s Bamboo earrings and african inspired choker referenced a mash-up of hip-hop style and safari chic, while at Versace medallions took centre stage, jangling of cuffs and forming the centre piece for body jewellery.

The seed for the idea for Assya’s AW14 Arrow collection came from the ornate jewelled arrows and daggers from ancient civilizations, particulary the Topkapi Emerald dagger, a magnificent jewelled dagger that was made in 1747. The contradiction of beauty and violence inspired Tessa to create pieces that were rebellious but simultaneously sophisticated and chic.

SS14 Trend: Fringing and Tassels

The  SS14 catwalks were alive with movement thanks to the wealth of tassels and fringing, adorning everything from dresses to capes, and bags to swimwear.

Calvin Klein and Erdem’s approach was ladylike with a nod towards the fringed dresses of the 1920’s, while Valentino & Pucci had an exotic tribal feel.

Accessories weren’t left out either, at Gucci bags were colourful with dramatic fringing reminiscent of the 70’s and Valentino bags also had this feel but with a glamorous edge provided by gold embellishments.

Over at Anya Hindmarch, the star of the show was the Geogianna clutch with oversized tassel, even Anya classics were in for a revamp with a colourful layered tassel. The Tassels are available to buy individually, perfect for adding a touch of tassel to any bag.
