Runway Trends: Jewelry Spring/Summer 2015

Vogue Paris shares an up close look at some of spring's jewelry trends.

The slogan bracelet at Chanel

Chanel's fashion riot for Spring/Summer 2015 saw bangles in silver and brightly colored leather with the same on-trend demo slogans that the girls brandished in the finale, including "Make Fashion Not War", "Oser Sans Poser" and "Ladies First". Karl Lagerfeld and the Chanel girls wore their hearts on their sleeves.

The retro hoop at Louis Vuitton
With denim flares, high waists and glossy leather, the high-shine of the Camille Miceli's disk earringscaught the lights of the runway at the Spring/Summer 2015 show. It was back to the future with these hoops, with all the allure of 1970s icons.

The ring stack at Valentino

In an invitation to travel next Summer, the creative duo behind Valentino peppered Spring/Summer 2015 looks with marine symbols. Coral, shells and sea urchins replaced last summer's signs of the zodiac, translating into sun-bright rings to mix and match all season. 

 Mix 'N' Match piercings at Dior

With long hair tucked back behind the ears, the Dior Spring/Summer 2015 girls' multiple piercings were front and center. Chrome hoops nestled close to the lobe, alongside statement earrings of a different hue, with some girls even wearing three. A look that's set to become cult.

The black lacquer cuff at Céline
The Céline Spring/Summer 2015 collection exuded the relaxed elegance of the designer Phoebe Philo, who mixed up styles and prints. The ready-to-wear looks were accented with hand-shaped pendants and the glossy black, PVC cuff that matched the oval-shaped bag of the season.

The illusion earrings at Prada

Appearances were deceptive at Prada. Spring/Summer 2015 was true to the house's offbeat style and in terms of accessories, it was all in the detail. These fine jewelry-styled pendant earrings were in reality, beautifully worked crystal, used to killer effect.

The choker at Balmain
Accented with gold cuffs and chokers, the jewelry worn by the Balmain Spring/Summer 2015 warriors played a key role in the show, experimenting with both transparency and constricted lines.

The playful pearls at Lanvin
With 125 years design history to draw on, Alber Elbaz brought us a fresh take on the French classic at Lanvin. Jewelry designer Elie Top played with the traditional white pearl, suspended like an abacus, from a silver necklace. New ground for the Parisienne's game.

The talisman necklace at Etro

A wave of fashion freedom broke at the Etro show in Milan, as sun-drenched California Dreamin' inspiration saw folky fabrics blend with dreamcatcher jewelry worked from raw stones, beads and feathers mingle with long hair, left loose over the shoulders. 

The XXL chain at Stella McCartney
Stella McCartney's goal was to translate the idea of quiet, female confidence, onto the runway. Her Spring/Summer 2015 collection did just that, combining softly tinted florals with audacious, chunky chains, adding force to the gentle tapering of a black dress.

The Safety-pin earrings at Giorgio Armani

With crystals mounted on necklaces, sand-colored breastplates and subtle animal-print earrings, the jewelry at the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2015 show toyed with the natural charm of the collection. With the exception of these graphic earrings, adding a punk edge to the collection with stylized safety-pin pendants.

The dainty necklace at Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane
With spangled dresses, platform shoes, high-waisted leather shorts and scarves knotted nonchalantly to the side, Hedi Slimane beat out the spirit of the Seventies on the Saint Laurent catwalk, to a new and undeniably improved rhythm. The jewelry completed this sweeping nostalgia, evoking memories of adolescence with the revival of heart or Love pendants, were worn on bare skin. 

The silver disc at Giambattista Valli
Against the picturesque backdrop of leaves and cherry blossoms that decorated Luigi Scialanga's dresses, the lights of the runway picked out the brilliant shine of silver disc pendants, creating a stand-out look for Giambattista Valli Spring/Summer 2015.

The baroque choker at Givenchy
Smoky quartz crystals, mounted onto a band of transparent leather, in the same chocolate tones of the standout Amazon dress from the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2015 collection created a statement look.

The oversized earrings at Roberto Cavalli
Reflecting a change of perspective for Roberto Cavalli, the house's signature animal print motifs were this time worked into the accessories, in the form of oversized PVC jewelry, in a modern move for the Italian label.

The syncable watch at Diesel Black Gold

Diesel Black Gold sent models down the runway wearing latest-generation syncable watches to beat the clock at Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Week, and Apple along with it, who unveiled the Apple Watch during New York Fashion Week. A partnership between Samsung and creative director Andreas Melbostad put the Samsung Gear S front and center, with oversized red, black and grey straps.

The artisan spirit at Marni
With jewelry crafted from wood and natural materials, the accessories at the Marni Spring/Summer 2015 show captured the artisan spirit of the fashion house and affirmed its reputation at the height of Italian craftsmanship. 

Layered necklaces at Versace
Mirroring the contours of the Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Versace necklaces came in two different styles: a choker paired with the short dresses and a fine chain with a medallion to contrast the tuxedo. An experiment with layering, which also featured in the sport-chic T-shirts of the collection.

Electric blues at Emporio Armani

A sea breeze swept over the runway for the Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2015 show, as the Italian fashion house presented a collection in contrasting hues of blue and white. These nautical shades were seen in the accessories too, from the blue plexiglas earrings, to the iridescent cuff and leather watches. A wave of cool blue, to set the tone for Summer 2015.

The crystal jewel at Ralph Lauren Collection
Contrasting the safari spirit behind the jumpsuits and flak jackets of Ralph Lauren Collection, models were draped in an array of precious crystals.

Layered gold chains at Moschino

Sporting peroxide blonde hair, bubble-gum pink lips, roller-blades and aerobics clothes, the Moschino girl was a tribute to the plastic superstar Barbie, on the runway for Spring/Summer 2015. Jeremy Scott reinvented the famous Mattel doll, amping up her style credentials with Peace & Love earrings and a multitude of gold chains adorned with Moschino charms.
