Milan Shopping guide – best jewelry trends for 2016


From contemporary pearls to tribal talismans, spring/summer 2016 fashion brought new and exciting jewelry design trends. This will be your Milan Fashion Shopping guide for this season. The new mood of romance that took over all 4 principal fashion weeks, mainly Milan Spring Summer 2016 fashion week,  called for a revival of some of timeless fashion diamond jewelry trends, including pearls, tiaras and brooches. Designers’ interest in the past for SS16 revived these traditional pieces and gave them a modern reworking.

*New age tiaras
For Spring Summer 2016 (SS16) designers subverted the feminity of the tiara, using silver headpieces to add an extra edge to their collections. At Louis Vuitton, the SS16 collection was inspired by video-game heroines, with urbanwarrior style models in space-age headgear. Saint Laurent produced a grunge-inspired collection of with slip dresses and festival-themed designs, finished with diamante tiaras.

While pearls are usually reserved for formal occasions, Chanel’s modern new take overthrew any prim and proper associations.

Both Salvatore Ferragamo and Gucci own spin on the pearl with single drop earrings, a simple but effective reinvention.

*Chain mail
The new mood of romance that appeared across all four host cities during the recent main fashion weeks looked to history for inspiration, particularly when it came to jewelry, Rodarte, Alexander McQueen and Calvin Klein all used chains to add whimsy and romance to their collections – to different effect. Rodarte looked to the bohemian vibes of the 70s and 80s to produce delicate hand chains, while Alexander McQueen and Calvin Klein adorned satin dresses with layers of talisman-inspired chains, reflecting the 17th century feel of their collections.
