The team of Italian brand and a subsidiary world-famous company Versace-Versus, organized a new show of new Fall-Winter 2017-18 collection at London jewelry Fashion Week. Since this brand is oriented towards a younger audience, new jewelry collection is corresponded to rebellious and youthful spirit. Here you will find incredibly large and long earrings, which, by the way, can be worn as a single one, thin black chokers and wide ones with the name of the brand itself. Yes, logomania is not inferior to anything. By the way, more about logomania: Fashion bracelets Spring 2017.
Sofi Tukker’s “Matadora” boomed from the showspace as guests pulled up in their black Mercedes-Benzes. One by one, editors, chart topping artists and the rest of the fashion community ascended the stairs ready to let loose at one of Donatella’s quarterly club night. The talent in the front row and on the catwalk came straight out of Donatella’s rolodex: Gigi and Bella Hadid opened and closed the show respectively while M.I.A. Matangi, Tinie Tempah and Ellie Goulding graced the photo call. It was more than anyone could care to namedrop. Good music, good crowd, killer lights – a winning formula. Despite it all, there was no doubt the raison d’etre for the evening was paying respects to the matriarch, one of the few icons London Fashion Week actually boasts.” – from Nowfashion.com
For any fashion fan worth their weight in salt London Fashion Week is the biggest bi-annual event in the UK style calendar. Bursting with the latest trends and must-haves – not to mention a seriously cool frow – the shows give us an insight into what we will be wearing next season.” – from Grimsbytelegraph.co.uk
For this season, a Serbian designer and a graduate of St. Martin’s Central College of Art and Design – Roksanda dedicated her new collection to the fashion designer Richard Nicholl, who died last year because of a heart attack. The English designer managed to become remembered by the world of fashion even for his short career. He became important not only with because his original thoughts about femininity and comfort, but because his own patented color – Nicoll Blue, which combines gray and blue hues. It is the very fact from the biography of Richard that Roksanda decided to use in her new Fall-Winter 2017-2018 London jewelry collection show.
Each image was made in a certain shade, which was complemented by contrasting color inserts. And, of course, you’ve already noticed that this London jewelry repeats the trend of a single earring. Modern earrings should impress. Antique items, bright colors and large sizes in one combination will look great. So you shouldn’t wear just long usual earrings. During Spring 2017 season original long trendy earrings and cuff will become very relevant. Designers began using pendants in different colors, textures and sizes for creating massive items. It will be a perfect complement to the luxurious evening dress. As well as for the afternoon walk. Long hanging trendy earrings almost-to-shoulders provide an opportunity of unlimited choices: metal, fabric, plastic.
So I wonder how long this trend will be in the top? No, no, I do not mind it. It is just interesting how trends that appeared only in 2015 are still fading. Among them are chokers, single earrings (even different earrings did not create such a resonance), statement necklace… Even a little boring, to be honest.
And that is all. Honestly, I have not seen anything more interesting among the fashion shows. That’s why I prepared for you a great review from London jewelry street style!
London jewelry street style
1. That is too much!
Hoop earrings became the most popular jewelry that the London fashion divas chose. Yes, as you see rings, circles and other similar shapes appeared really in a big amount. I was even bored a little bit about it. That’s why I collected for you the most original and unusual variations of this accessory. Well, frankly, it seems to me that London jewelry fashionistas who chose simple and large hoop earrings, felt a little uncomfortable. Especially, in the case when such jewelry were the only one accent in the image.
In 2017, hoop earrings are again into fashion – that’s what London beauties are showing us so clearly. Well, since celebrities are trying to prove that today this style is as relevant as it was in the 90s – it’s probably worth thinking about it. As for me, freely hanging hoop earrings have long been out of fashion – after they began to be considered by stylists as “trash” fashion-sets. But this spring season was for them a kind of modernization. Now hoops could be interconnected, fulfilled or simply used as an additional part.
Hoops have a long history, in and out of pop culture. Jennifer Lopez has made the style her signature for over two decades; the shiny accessories have always been synonymous with Sade’s iconic uniform. Salt-N-Pepa brought large-and-in-charge door knocker and bamboo hoops center stage—a style that Olivier Rousteing re-created in his Fall 2014 Balmain collection. Travel a few centuries back (or just head to the Met) and hoop earrings are common; like a hefty-looking Minoan Bronze Age piece, a gold version from ancient Egypt, or a Neo-Assyrian bust from the eighth century B.C. Today, the traditional dress of women from the Gadaba tribe of India includes mammoth hoops pierced through their upper ears, while the Hmong women of Vietnam sport several silver hoops threaded through a single lobe.” – from Vogue.com
2. Stop it! Boring!
As it was expected, London jewelry Fashion Week public was not so bright as New York – in the most literal sense of that word. The art of correct arrangement of colorful accents local audience have not skillfully mastered. In this regard first and foremost I would like to note how contemporary fashionistas and stylists use their originality. Earrings with metal beads? In 2017? Are you serious?
When I told you about past fashion weeks, I mentioned that all the fashionistas choose long metallic earrings with colored beads. In this case, fashion jewelry designers of Markus Lupfer brand have complicated everything – as you can see, such earrings are a new must-have of the New York jewelry season. These earrings can not be overlooked because they are both simple a unusual that almost every fashion blogger is trying to acquire similar ones. And the most pleasant thing is that they are simply enough to create even for the amateur lover of needlework and jewelry art.” – this is my qoute from New York Jewelry Fashion Week 2017 post. But in this case such jewelry was really cool and unusual! Just enter the link and check.
Well, I have nothing against the fact that some trends are delayed for a long time in fashion. But honestly, I do not like when fashionistas and stylists do not try to improve and to give a certain originality to the things that are lying in their wardrobe more than for a one year. Could already quire time to make such earring twice longer and use it as a single earring, or add a small stud earring to it and use the “different earrings” trend, or just choose a newfangled trend – earring + necklace. I’m for innovation! And what do you think about this?
3. New classics
London Fashion Week – is the shortest of the main four, and according to the schedule – the most relaxed. But that hasn’t stopped street fashionistas to show that they are going pace with fashion, know everything about it and feel it perfectly. Yes, I really want the chandelier earrings become a new classic! After all, you can dress as simple as possible and monochrome – these earrings will allocate you from the crowd. I give you one hundred percent! A bit of East is always a great idea. It seems to me that the East women, their fashion and culture are an embody of beauty, femininity and brightness. After all, the abundance of jewelry is their organic, their essence, their soul. Therefore, yes! Yes Yes Yes! I want everyone wear, everyone create chandeliers in the new season… That’s my little modest desire 🙂
Flaunt long chandelier earrings are at the peak of the popularity for the next fashion season, and especially for the bridal jewelry. But don’t forget about removing hair from your face, while wearing such adornment. By the way, long earrings with crystals assume no tiaras, but you can add a light necklace.
4. No end for single and different
By the way, almost all the fashionistas preferred the aforementioned trends – single and different earrings. These trends are very noticeable. They traced some time ago, but finally appeared in 2016-2017 season’s collections. And such designs were created not only by the leading fashion houses, but also by some young designers. Fashion shows dazzle in this manner of wearing, when girl has a big earring in one ear and a smaller one in the second. So wish you or not, we have to follow this direction, if we want to be trendy.

A pin-earring also appeared in “different earrings” trend. So, 90s are in London jewelry Fashion Week 2017. By the way, a trend of different earrings or a single earring was born in the very 90s. After all, such a pin should be very large and it should be combined with a number of studs or ring-earrings, if the girl had pierced ears at different locations. You can read more about it in the appropriate post.
5. Still 90’s: still chokers, still chains
Among the favorites there is a usual unusual shape of necklaces, closely adjacent to the gentle feminine neck. The main aim of choker is to cause no discomfort and to create a harmonious combination of clothes. Click To Tweet This jewelry necklace will suit not everyone, but really any fashionista is able to choose her own choker. The main thing is that your choker should be quite laconic and monochrome, as London jewelry fashionistas show:
After all, properly fitted jewelry can give your image originality and style. You can put on the most simple things in pastel colors and then resort to the force of necklaces. It will certainly give to your image a bit of chic. And, for those who want to see something more extraordinary and audacious – here is a choker as a real dog-collar! It’s like a children’s belt for trousers, but the fashionista has put it on her neck. In addition, this trend took a chance to create such adornments for men. With what more insane will world designers come up the next season?
6. A bit of minimalism, as always
Minimalistic pendants on thin chains will always be in fashion. Last time I notice that their young women of fashion try to put on as much as possible. And it works! The most stylish images are done just like that. And although we are talking about London, it seems to me that this trend came to us from Italy. If not, correct me, please)

8. I’m so into wire jewelry!
Yes, this is my favourite trend from London jewelry Fashion Week 2017! Such earrings are so special and, as I believe, tell their story in every silhouette. All depends on style and direction that you are pursuing. Here you can give a free rein to your imagination. Many artists work with silver and silver-plated wire. There are also a lot of art works with a gold-plated wire. And what is the best thing about such accessory – you can make it with your own hands and talent.
9. A little bit of rings

Now lets talk a little bit about rings. Rings on the London jewelry Fashion Week 2017 were not so varied. Ladies chose primarily single options: thin rings with one jewel or larger ones like cocktail rings. Choosing rings, stylists paid attention to the rather massive models, including large stones and to the jewelry with aggressive design. Lots of fashionistas gave their preference to such rings due to the fact that they are ideally suitable for any lifestyle. They can adorn themselves with it in everyday life, and use it for impressing image on important meetings as the London jewelry Fashion Week. The more unusual is your ring – the better.
