NYFW SS17: Earrings alert!
New York Fashion Week’s designers are all about big, bold statement earrings this season! We’re now day 6 of one of the craziest months of the year in the fashion world, and the style has already accented the lobes of countless models. Be ready to see a lot of these audacious earrings on the runways in London, Milan, and Paris in the next few weeks. It looks like big daring earrings will take over next summer, so be ready ladies!
Monse took an edgier route with the trend: one single, sculptural dangler atop equally asymmetrical separates. Much like other quietly subversive elements found throughout the outfits (deconstructed suiting, sequined chokers, dainty septum rings), it gave the finished effect a sophisticated kind of grit.
The ear ornaments at Hellessy followed clean lines with a chain of interlocking circles—the perfect complement to clothing's strong shapes. Also, have you noticed yet that all these examples are silver? Considering the preponderance of chunky gold jewellery (earrings and otherwise) in fashion these last few seasons, this subtle shift feel fresh.
Another way to shake things up: The rose-gold take on the trend we spotted over at CG by Chris Gelinas. Ranging from just a few inches in length to nearly shoulder-skimming, the design's coppery luster proved special enough to elevate some of the line's lower key offerings, such as a short sleeve grey sweater and black skirt combo. That same magic will definitely work on your favourite T-shirts and jeans. Watch out this might me the one look every fashionistas will adopt!
Speaking before the show, Scott said that he found his new collection's inspiration in the early-’80s days of East Village squats, barmy club nights, and pervy peep shows. Perhaps a neon pink–tinted take is more accurate. The reason this period continues to fascinate is that it conjures a bygone vibrancy—a time when New Yorkers could get up to all kinds of freakiness, thanks to the fact that they were largely ignored. Scott got at that vibrancy through his flashy palette and jutting geometries, motifs that came fully to life in his series of sculptural, sequined show-closing looks embellished by geometrical colourful earrings.
At Creatures of the Wind, we noticed a set of burnished discs which, while only present in a single look, may have been one of the collection's most covetable pieces.
With earrings swaying like Alexander Calder mobiles and the pleated skirts swinging high-low, there seemed to be permanent sense of movement. Originality, imagination and certainly craftsmanship describe accurately Proenza Schouler's SS17 collection. Perhaps "eclectic candelabras is the best way to describe the earrings that decorate the models' ears.
Joseph Altuzarra said of his collection “I wanted something that felt happy, joyous, flirty, and fun.” Who can argue with that? Altuzarra had been inspired by David Lynch's 1990 film Wild At Heart, which led him down a comprehensive kitsch warren of gingham shirt dresses, tight cherry-printed ruffled skirts, Lolita-style bralettes, and scene-stealing earrings which we absolutely adore!
