Necklaces and chokers with lots of jewelry pendants of 2019 will totally amaze us with choice and variety. It is noticeable that the tendency to wear adornments of large sizes has been preserved. Quite often there will appear quite atypical combinations.
For example, Dries Van Noten with Loewe offered to wear long necklaces with natural stones in combination with chokers, reminiscent of bronze springs and feather collars. And if earlier such combinations caused a lot of questions, now the combination of the incongruous became not only permissible, but also quite normal. Stones have been included in their jewelry collections by other brands as well. Both natural components (Bottega Veneta, Calvin Klein), and artificial (Ralph Lauren, Lanvin) can be used. The choice depends only on personal preferences and taste predilections.
For fans of everything new and not ordinary there are also very interesting news – henceforth on the fragile necks you can wear absolutely any shapes and designs. There can be, for example, jewelry pendants resembling a bicycle lock, fauna representatives, a notebook or a bunch of metal keys like Prada and Balenciaga did.
Handcrafted from silver, semi-precious stones, and natural materials, Prada’s first jewelry collection plays on the relationship between primeval artifacts and the relentless progression of so-calledcivilization. The unisex line is made up of rarified elements, each uniquely coarse in shape, lined with fibers and locked into exquisitely refined silver moldings. The jewelry is packaged in an elegant, satin-lined Saffiano box that reflects an inspiration of mystical entitiesfound throughout history. The material contrasts give each piece distinct character and emphasize the way in which primitive forms have eternally shaped human consciousness.
Whether these elegant compositions of wood, shell, labradorite,amethyst, citrine quartz shingle, rock crystal, and wild animals in sculpted silver will indeed ward off evil, summon good will, or guarantee luck, depends in part on one’s trust in the power of symbols (then again, whether any artifact of style—a handbag, a ring, a label—can exude power depends on that exact same variable). Regardless, the Prada Talisman will reveal its true aura only once ithas worked its magic.” – from prada.com
Fans of all kinds of masks will like large images of human faces and crooks of cats by Loewe. Gicci and Chanel, as always, included pearls, rhinestones and fauna theme in their shows, but not in the form of lone beads, but in the shape of whole bundles of long, sometimes multicolored jewelry pendants with interspersed chains, coulombs , stones and other all kinds of decorations. In addition, the brands adorned the neck and décolleté area of their wards with chains of different caliber and color. Such kinds of jewelry pendants on chokers and barquots did not just fail to surrender their positions, but, rather, quickly conquered all the fashionable peaks. And if earlier the chokers were simply done of leather, velvet, satin or knitted stripes, tightly framing the neck, now their range has significantly expanded.
Identity – the subject of this millennium – was at the core of what the designer was saying in words and jewelry. The designer explained that he wanted to break down the binary, fixed categories and to challenge descriptions such as “normal/abnormal”. He also wanted to reject rigid descriptions, notably those separating “human” and “animal” – the latter a category of creatures that he loves so much. Identity, he insisted, was “not immutable and fixed fact”, rather a social and cultural construction. Gucci’s current booming success comes from Michele’s intense fascination with objects and accessories. But why not be the woman/man you want to be? It is the mantra of the moment and Michele’s passionate belief in creating a personal identity seems sound, whether it is a new hybrid reality, or a choice of jewelry.” – from en.vogue.fr
For example, Ralph Lauren and Diane von Furstenberg decorated chokers with fauna & flora motives and different symbolic charms, Alexander Wang and Calvin Klein with hearts and buckles from belts, while Rag & Bone with Fendi presented fur and pearl models. Valentino again diluted his shows with long jewelry pendants. Simone Rocha, Lanvin and some other brands offered to wear not just necklaces with pendants, but the whole sets of jewelry, which, in addition to your jewelry pendants, could include similar earrings, rings and bracelets.
