New York Fashion Week – is one of the main and the most influential events of every fashion-industry season. It starts the traditional fashion marathon. Every spring and autumn representatives of the professional community, journalists, celebrities, bloggers, and thousands who want find out what will be fashionable the next season go to the eastern coast of the US, where the New York Fashion Week is held. Then New York jewelry passes the baton to London, Milan and Paris. So I decided to start the story with very New York fashion week, as it is the most colorful and unpredictable.
New York Fashion Week – is the oldest of the four major world weeks, the first time it was held in 1943 under the name of the Press Week. In the midst of World War II, it became a sensation and allowed New York to win the right to be called one of the world capitals of fashion along with Paris. That is why New York fashionistas are preparing for this fashion show with a special responsibility. As their outfits shouldn’t be only extravagant. But also correctly constructed according to all fashion canons.
New York Fashion Week 2017 includes the main fashion trends of the next season – current models, silhouettes, colors and materials in one place for a few days. I want to start my story with one of the most famous models of our time – Cara Delavigne. Cara Delavigne for a short time fell to the bottom and missed a lot of secular and fashion events. Last time she was seen on the catwalk of Chanel fashion brand during the show of Metiers d’Art 2016/2017: at Paris Cosmopolite in December 2016 and at the Glamor ceremony “Woman of the Year 2016” a little earlier, in November. But than she appeared at the New York Fashion Week with a new hairstyle. But we are concerned about the jewelry that she has chosen – simple, but trendy.
Show-rematch of Marc Jacobs for the critically assassinated show in September. Click To Tweet That’s what fashion critics have seen this year. Well, I saw something different. I saw single earrings in the form of door keys. I saw huge gold hoop earrings. And I saw our favorite big gold necklaces in the form of chains. Only now they are much more interesting – Marc decorated them with elaborate and unusual pendants. Nothing unusual at the first glance, but in combination with the next season, it becomes something we really need.
The jewelry was a collaboration with Urs Fischer: “Amped up gold jewelry provides the glam and celebrates my collaboration with artist Urs Fischer whose charming, sculpted and gilded mice pendants swing from heavy gold chains.” – from www.elle.com
By the way, modern fashionistas continue to give priority to the most important trend of spring 2016 – circular earrings in the shape of rings. During 2017, earrings’ trends dominate with size and round shape as well. No matter how would you wear them, they must be large, unusual and eye-catching. This trend combines all the accessories in 2017.
This show proved to us that during this spring our image will be not complete without large gold jewelry items. And frankly, these adornments will look great with silk clothes. But in this case, silk dress will be a complement to such an accessory, and a golden necklace or long golden earrings are the main characters of your image. Ralph Lauren collection looked just great. And accessories with animal prints were literally imbued with light spring mood.

Honestly, this is the first time I liked the safari style. More precisely, such an interpretation of the safari style. And what do you think about safari fashion? It is important one, I think, although I don’t consider it feminine. But the first significant difference compared to the previous season in design of women’s fashion jewelry is punctuated by weight and even visual rudeness, which can be found among safari accessories. So you can see very large and even aggressive options among the gold New York jewelry. Click To Tweet
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.

Among all the variety of decor we will meet the iconic elements of the Marchesa style that could be found in each collection – voluminous flower applications and black velvet.
Since ancient times people have been decorated their houses, complemented their images and dresses with a kind of fresh flowers. At first it appeared mainly because of religious or mythological reasons. And later – just to enhance the beauty. Flowers in the New York jewelry art are nothing actually new. As since the very ancient times, they have been an expression of human feelings and an accompany of all the important moments in life. Such as a person’s birth, maturity, weddings and even death. It is a symbol of living and loving. Click To Tweet So if you feel your wardrobe is something fateful, these jewelry is something you exactly need.

Well, in the new season, designers and stylists of Marchesa brand completely follow fashion trends: long evening earrings, fresh flowers, bows and black chokers. In general, everything that must necessarily appear in the casket of every fashionista and in the store of every jewelry seller.
Today, lots of designers are fully absorbed by the romantic style. Click To Tweet For 2017 year designers and Hollywood stars are insisting on clothes with floral print and so that on floral motif in accessories.
Let’s talk a little more about China, but in a more extravagant version. American designer of Filipino origin Josie Natori released a small collection of 20 images. Despite the fact that this collection turned out too small, this fashion and jewelry designer tried to compensate for the most effective, feminine and stylish adornments. The new collection was dedicated to Chinese culture... Click To TweetWhat a surprise:) Josie Natori stylized this beauty in a modern way, and added a little classics. Beautiful earrings, traditional patterns, classical forms and a noble color range of black and gold attract a great attention to this collection.
Josie Natori is celebrating 40 years in business this season. Given the current state of the fashion industry—brands shuttering, creative directors coming and going—that milestone feels especially impressive. Natori started her label back in 1977 with lingerie, a category that’s still going strong, but her business sense likely played a big part in her brand’s longevity. You may not know that before making the switch to fashion, Natori was the first woman to become vice president of investment banking at Merrill Lynch. So, the designer is something of a feminist icon” – from Vogue.com
Finally! My favorite Delpozo) The very brand that I fell in love with at first sight. In the new Delpozo collection of Fall-Winter 2017-2018 Joseph Font used all the shades and shapes of the spring palette. His filigree work admires with the diversity and at the same time with unity of the image. And the main attributes of the collection became bright decorative brooches and embroidery made of glamorous flowers in the style of the 80’s. That’s why I like this brand so much – they revive the old trends and make them insanely delicious!
Delpozo is one of the most interesting Spanish brands for today. Click To Tweet It was created in 1974 by Jesús del Pozo and positioned as a couture one, but its fame spread mainly within his native country. The collection of Fall-Winter 2017-2018 season was the tenth for Josep Font as for the creative director of Delpozo. Font drew inspiration for the new season in the works of the Hungarian artist-postmodernist Josef Rippl-Ronaye, as well as in sculptors of Max Bill. The first artist is known for his works with color and his love for the blue shades – all that was traced in the new Delpozo collection. The second one was a fan of the so-called concrete art with a craving for simple and understood forms. You can check this forms in the whole collection.

Commenting the show behind the scenes, Saunders commented:
This season I definitely continued to develop the theme of my first collection. This is an eclectic mixture of materials, a collision of colors and a sense of lightness.”
Thus, images of Fall-Winter 2017-2018 look optimistic, but not aggressive. Designer chose the color-block technique as the main decor. Click To Tweet To create expressiveness and stress, Jonathan also used materials that are very different in texture. These exotic collages are inspired by the culture of Africa and Japan.
How do we keep the handmade art and at the same time move into the future?” So that Rosie’s new collection is created under the impression of a real retro. When Rosie Assoulin launched her label in 2013, she couldn’t have known just how much her fun, whimsical collections would move the needle. In general, she’s helped to usher in a new era of statement daywear—and, as a result, less formal eveningwear. If you were curious how those earrings were made, the artist responsible for them was stationed in the corner, throwing mini urns on a pottery wheel. The technique was mind-bogglingly gorgeous; look closer, and you’ll notice tiny smiley-face stickers sprinkled among the petals. Assoulin compared the effect to a childhood sticker book, but it was also a nice metaphor for the natural and artificial worlds colliding” – from Vogue.com
And yes, as you can see, single earring trend is still with us. Click To Tweet Fall-Winter 2017-2018 season takes over this trend, but simplifies it by making versatile – suitable for both street style and for the office. There should be a decoration as small and large round beads, as well as singles, which can’t be combined with additional jewelry in any way. By the way, Rosie Assoulin made the great evening version.
Sporty bandages and trendy hair headbands have appeared in all collections of the season Fall-Winter 2017-2018. They became another top-notch fashion trend. It is worth paying attention to monochrome headbands with classic beads by Chanel in combination with dresses in pajama style or even with business suits. This is everything about 60s. During 60’s all spheres of life were searching for new forms and unconventional thinking.
Sachin & Babi
A whiff of nostalgia and introspection hit Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia this season. The reasons are many: Not only are they celebrating 20 years in business and marriage, but they’d also just returned from a trip to Jaipur, India. There they reignited their love for bejeweled pieces and lively prints, finding inspiration not only in classically Indian ideas but also in the vestiges of the British empire like botanical wallpapers and Jodhpur silhouettes. “Heritage” read a crest at the bottom of the show notes; backstage, the pair spoke of a fusing of cultures. The fusion couldn’t have gone better” – from Vogue.com

Ashish Gupta brought us to India. His models were dressed not only as Indian beauties, but as Indian gods, too. And it is clear, ’cause for this collection Gupta was inspiring by old Bollywood, by brightness and naivety of Indian films. Well, I think you can imagine how vivid and memorable were jewelry items in Fall-Winter 2017-2018 collection. Still, this is East – this is India!
This collection was culturally specific, yes. But it was also about the cultural intermingling that Gupta personifies” – from Vogue.com
Street style jewelry
What do you think, what is the most popular accessory among New York jewelry fashionistas? Of course – choker! For several years till now. This year, fashion lovers stopped on two alternative variants: a wide monochrome choker covering almost the entire neck, resembling a scarf; strewn with rhinestones and crystals, which could well suit the evening image. And it seems to me that these are great variations on the theme of this adornment. After all, designers have distorted this model for a long time and it’s time to choose something universal. New York jewelry Fashion Week has proved once again that this accessory is absolutely necessary.
Coming back to earrings – this jewelry can rightly be called one of the most innovative trends among 2017 year. During winter the most popular were single earrings of various shapes, during spring – chain earrings and cuffs. But the New York jewelry fashionistas couldn’t forget this extravagant trend – a single earring. Girls continue to amaze us with their variations. New York jewelry Fashion Week 2017 presented some magical models with unusual details, and more original large earrings with lots of geometric decorations.

Without gold, by the way, there is no way. Click To Tweet Almost all young fashionistas chose this metal or the golden color for their New York jewelry street style images. As you’ve probably figured out, no spring outfit is complete without long earrings with large beads. It will be a perfect complement to the luxurious evening dress as well as for the afternoon walk. You have to be maximally original. And the most important thing is that these earrings are worn by women of absolutely all ages. And this means that such a wonderful trend has no restrictions neither for age, nor for style.
Also at New York jewelry Fashion Week 2017, girls gave a special preference to the royal style of earrings – huge variants with a great number of precious stones. In 2016 earrings are equally popular in the performance from non-natural materials as well as from gold or platinum with addition of precious stones.
But by the way here are the images that I liked the most. Simply, concisely and naturally with taste! And what do you think?
I talk to you about men and men’s jewelry not very often… Even in the modern world, they wear adornments so rarely! But it is not about men of New York city! This season they showed themselves as true fans of the 90s jewelry style. Guys decided to stand out with an abundance of gold and silver chains, as well as with grunge earrings in the form of a pin. Well, personally for me, nothing surprising. When I hear the phrase “New York fashion” I always represent 90s era.
Unlike the men’s Fashion Week, women’s street style is pleasantly variegated with the most original looks. So, New York justifies the title of the most democratic and eclectic capital of fashion once again. There is a place for the most relevant and surprising. Images that photographers shot on the local streets show everything. Here, fashionistas try to support the best trends of last season and the most forgotten ones just come back – for example, large gold chains in a real gangsta style. Also brooches could be met in a gold metal.
Also very popular were minimalistic necklaces. A small pendant with natural stone on a thin chain or a metal suspension, repeating the chain color – that is what girls and boys chose for the street style of New York Fashion Week 2017. And they haven’t miscalculated, because these jewelry will be very popular in the Spring 2017 season. A gold chain and a gold pendant combination will be especially strong and stylish, and most importantly, it will suit any outfit. As well as the suspension in a marine style.

Is the abundance of rings tasteless? Not this time! Click To Tweet And fashion boys and girls from the streets of New York City have proved it! The more rings you have on your hands and the more is size of such rings – the better is your image. Choosing rings, you should pay attention to the rather massive models, including large stones and to the jewelry with aggressive design. The best option is a ring with gemstones. Click To TweetIt may be an option studded with small crystals that form a huge size of the ring. And it could be a ring with one, but very huge stone – in this case, the stone should be lightly colored.
This Fashion Week in New York was really special. Click To Tweet This is the last season, when Proenza Schouler conducted the show in Manhattan. And the first, when in the schedule we did not see the show of Rodarte and Tommy Hilfiger fashion brands. Obviously, the fashion world is changing, and many fashionable capitals can’t stand the competition. Despite all the perturbations in New York, you should not put an end on it – brands travel around the world, people look for new places for sale and customers, everyone tries to impress the public. The law of energy conservation energy also operates in the fashionable space – some artists leave Manhattan, others just come to conquer it. Thank you for your time, guys! I hope you got your inspiration)
