Jewellery trends for 2021

Filed by Lucire staff/March 18, 2021/0.45

If you’re one of those fashion-forward girls who love to keep up with the latest trends no matter what—welcome to the club, you aren’t the only one! Here are the four hottest jewellery trends you need to know about in 2021, so keep on reading, check them out, and enjoy!

Mismatched earrings are all the rage
Mismatched earrings are the first jewellery trend that will be all the rage in 2021. These were a big part of this year’s fashion weeks, as many prominent designers and well known brands had them in their latest collections. The good news is that these come in so many sizes, shapes, and amazing styles. For example, you can opt for a simple stud earring in one ear and a stunning drop earring in the other. If you prefer hoops, you should definitely match two earrings of different sizes. Possibilities are truly infinite, but you know what? Their biggest advantage is that you don’t have to buy a brand new pair of mismatched earrings. All you need to do is to combine earrings from two different pairs, and voilà—you’re rocking one of the biggest jewellery trends in 2021!

Colourful beads are making a huge comeback …

If you’re a fan of flamboyant jewellery, you’ll be thrilled to hear that gorgeous colourful beads are making a huge comeback this year! That’s right, so don’t wait any longer and add a pop of colour to your everyday combos. For example, a simple choker made from vibrantly coloured beads is a perfect choice for all the ladies who want to add a twist to their outfits, but without going overboard with it. However, if you want to make your choker more summer-friendly, just add several shell pendants to it. These will certainly do the trick! On the other hand, if you love your arm candy more than anything, be sure to layer a dozen bracelets made from colourful beads. These are beyond perfect for hot summer days, so give them a try and you won’t make a mistake!

… As well as beautiful vintage pieces
Truth be told, vintage jewellery will never go out of style. Those pieces are here to stay, and guess what? They will be a huge part of this year’s fashion trends, too! So, if you have unique pieces of jewellery your Mom or Grandma used to wear, make sure to look for these and incorporate them into your looks ASAP! However, if you don’t have such pieces at your disposal, you should definitely buy at least one of them this year. For example, a lovely diamond locket is all you could ask for when it comes to beautiful vintage jewellery. What’s particularly special about this locket is that it can hold two tiny photos. You can wear this piece either on a short necklace or on a long one. We highly recommend wearing it on a longer necklace for a much better visual effect!

Everyone loves statement chain necklaces

On the other hand, if you love bold pieces of jewellery that can catch everyone’s attention, you shouldn’t skip statement chain necklaces this year! These have been gaining a lot of popularity over the last few months, which is why you should pay extra attention to them. What’s so interesting about them is the fact that they are quite simple when it comes to design. However, they are very edgy and eye-catching, too, which is exactly what makes them so wanted—both in haute couture and in street fashion. Apart from chain chokers, there are also chain necklaces of different lengths and sizes you can choose from. Of course, the most popular colour this year is gold, so be sure to get a chunky chain necklace in this bold shade. Trust us when we say that you won’t make a mistake with it!
   As you can tell, there are so many fabulous jewellery trends you can keep up with this year. These four are just some of them, so bear them in mind and stick to a trend that’s the closest to your personal style and preferences. One thing is certain—you won’t go wrong whichever trend you choose to for. It’s a promise!—Peter Minkoff

Witchery, Ruby show what’s coming for autumn ’21

Filed by Lucire staff/March 10, 2021/4.04



Witchery’s April arrivals form part of its Highland Escape collection for autumn–winter 2021, with checks and tartan dropping for April.
   Tapping into a Scottish heritage, Witchery’s latest evokes a 1970s to 1980s mood, with designs including the pintuck check dress, with butterscotch and whisky tones (NZ$199·90); the mini button check skirt (NZ$149·90) is a chic statement that’s at home in 2021; while the check coat (NZ$449·90) looks warm with its sumptuous wool yarns.

New Zealand label Ruby has released its Visions collection, which aims to extend the brand into new silhouettes, and revisits a few classic staples, out now. Creative director Deanna Didovich says, ‘We created Visions to encourage Rubettes to step outside of their comfort zones. To experiment with new silhouettes, while feeling confident in doing so. Of course, the collection features a few classic Ruby staples reworked in trans-seasonal designs.’ More at rubynz.com.





 


In brief: James Wines’s Erotica collection; limited-edition Joséphine bag; Bogner Fire & Ice for spring ’21

Filed by Lucire staff/February 14, 2021/11.40





Designer, artist and photographer Paula Sweet, whose work has regularly appeared in our pages, has announced a collection based around the work of SITE (Sculpture in the Environment) founder and principal, architect James Wines. Wines, 88, has created two drawings for the Erotica collection, comprising T-shirts, tops, leggings, pillows, stationery, cups and shower curtains. More at paulasweet.com.

Ludovica Mascheroni has shown Joséphine, a limited-edition pillow bag commemorating International Women’s Day next month. The bag is dedicated to Joséphine de Beauharnais, a patron of the arts, who brought an ancient Persian paisley pattern into vogue in Europe during the 19th century. She was reputed to be the first woman in Europe with an entire wardrobe in the paisley print. The 2021 interpretation on Mascheroni’s pillow bag is hand-made in 100 per cent cashmere, with leather and brass details, and retails for €729.

Bogner’s spring–summer 2021 Cold Hawaii campaign sees its Fire & Ice designs modelled by professional surfers Mor, Vahine, Robert and AJ in northern Denmark, in what the company calls ‘every adventurer’s dream’. There’s solitude, a rough climate and enviable waves, and the designs are equipped to take on those increasingly long days in the season ahead.


 


Katharina Mazepa, Shannon McMullen, Kelsie Jean Smeby model Guess’s spring ’21 accessories

Filed by Lucire staff/February 8, 2021/10.03




The Guess accessories’ campaign for spring 2021 has been shot by Yasmine Kateb, and features models Shannon McMullen, Kelsie Jean Smeby, and Katharina Mazepa, the former beauty queen and Instagram personality.
   Mazepa says becoming a Guess model has fulfilled a long-held ambition, ‘making my childhood dream come true.’
   She says that the brand’s co-founder and chief creative officer Paul Marciano was responsible for discovering her.
   Rob Sargsyan did the make-up, Esther Vásquez the hair, and Yosh Yañez the styling.
   The women follow in the footsteps of Anna Nicole Smith, Claudia Schiffer and Laetitia Casta, among the models who put the brand on the map.
   Marciano, the youngest of the four brothers who started the label, had been caught up among allegations of sexual assault for some time. Most prominently, in 2015, Kate Upton and four others made allegations, later settled for a total of US$500,000. Marciano announced his resignation as a Guess board member and chief creative officer from Guess in mid-2018, but the company reversed its position in January 2019. Allegations have continued to surface, most recently in the California courts, where the attorney representing the latest accuser noted that they knew of seven other women who have gone on the record against Marciano.

 


Nomos Glashütte shows classic timepieces for Valentine’s Day

Filed by Lucire staff/February 4, 2021/10.57



Nomos Glashütte, the largest manufacturer of mechanical watches in Germany, has a Valentine’s Day collection, spanning a variety of models, both self-winding and automatic, offered as single watches or in pairs. The reverse sides of the watches are big enough for a personal message to be engraved.
   Nomos also develops its own movements, and a great deal of the watches’ components are handmade. Only when the most demanding of precision is required—say a thousandth of a millimetre—does the company opt for machinery.
   The duo Nomos Glashütte has in mind is the Minimatik and Minimatik Champagne, powered by an ultra-thin automatic calibre. Individual watches include the Orio 33 in rose, the Orion 38 (top), and the classic Tangente, all of which have the brand’s quality stainless steel assembly. Finally, there is the Nomos sundial ring.

Forget conformity: Specsavers releases Deus Ex Machina eyewear collection

Filed by Lucire staff/February 3, 2021/21.13




Deus Ex Machina has collaborated with Specsavers on a new eyewear collection, now at stores across New Zealand.
   The new collection comprises twelve optical and six sunglass styles. It’s those fine Deus Ex Machina details that mark them out: asymmetric pins on the frame, which recall biker jacket buttons, as well as the Deus logo on the temples. Our picks include the Deus Sun RX 4, a classic pilot style with a double bridge, the Deus Sun RX 5, an aviator style, and the Deus 7, with an angular frame for those who find ovals and quadrangles too everyday.
   Juan Carlos Camargo, Specsavers’ head of frames, says, ‘We’re thrilled to add another stylish brand to our expanding designer portfolio and even more excited that this is an Australian-born brand. The Deus brand continues to achieve success on the global stage, and we are proud to be able to offer glasses wearers high-quality stylish products with the expert care, fit and Specsavers quality and value.’
   Prices range from NZ$299 to NZ$459 for two pairs, single vision.
