The Spring and Summer 2013 fashion lines have been surprisingly dark. Shirts, pants, hats, and of course, jewellery have all been marked by a more sinister than floral motif. Okay, so not sinister, per se, but in spring and summer, we usually see bright patterns and colors, all adorned with flowers. Of course, there is still an air of playfulness, but many designers have turned towards blacks and golds, crosses and spikes, skulls and owls, instead of inherently floral themes. And where we are seeing floral, the shapes are more abstract, less literal.
These styles, of course, tend towards a bolder customer, someone looking to stand out in a crowd, instead of blending in. Everything is a little more rock and roll mixed with a little flower child. Instead of butterflies, we are seeing beetles. This is apparent in Zyno’s line of affordable jewellery, as well. Alongside black rhinestone claw rings are bohemian tassel necklaces; peace symbol bracelets beside large, carved triangle rings.
Another trend hitting jewellery this Spring/Summer season is enamel. Enamel harks back to the 1980’s, as enamel jewellery is usually brightly colored and boldly designed. Triangles are some of those bold shapes making their way into the fashion houses this season. Buyers can see spiked triangles, studded triangles, and layered triangles in all kinds of jewellery. This shape is reminiscent of ancient Egypt, so many styles boast exotic prints that bring the Nile to mind. A fashionista cannot go wrong with one of Zyno’s many triangle shaped earrings, pendant necklaces, or bracelets. Geometric prints are, throughout the fashion world, definitely in this year. They are bold and make a statement, which is what the current trends are all about; standing out and making sure you are seen.
Gold is, as always, a classic, a staple of any woman’s jewellery collection, but anything metallic is also perfect for summer. There is something both high-society and almost tribal about a lovely gold wrist cuff or a set of stacked golden rings. It has a shot of 1920’s glamor, of good times and liberation. Vintage-looking gold and silver items are especially fashionable right now. The keyword here is not necessarily “understated.” Designers are going over the top, and buyers are loving it! This doesn’t mean, however, that everything you wear has to be gilded and stamped and over designed. The key is balance, visual interest, notes of color that are true to your style.
