Next summer will undoubtedly be marked by a wave of cool and upgraded jewelry including giant shells, wild animals, mini bags worn like jewelry and chokers in the form of chains.

They made their entrance several season ago, finding their way onto the lobes of models in colored money cowry, as mini shell anklets or trophy beach necklaces, and since then they have never left us. Next summer, the trend will see shell jewellery take on extra-large, almost exaggerated, proportions, No more dainty shells or surfer-like pendants, this time it will be a statement piece or nothing at all.

2. Flower Power

An explosion of flowers that heralds the arrival of spring brings itself into our necklaces, brooches and earrings in large-as-you-like proportions. Expect to see bunches of tailor-made treasures to embrace your inner country girl this fall.

Jacquemus had set the trend by presenting its Spring/Summer collection last June in a Provençal lavender field. The the flagship piece of the collection, the Chiquito bag appeared as a mini version to wear around the neck. A few months later, the trend was confirmed during Fashion Week, particularly at Dolce&Gabanna and Fendi, bringing the mini bag into the jewelry section.

4. Practical utility

From credit card earrings to lighters and glasses worn as necklaces, Spring/Summer 2020 saw many reinterpretations of everyday objects designed by creators to give a second life to these objects whose fashion potential we would sometimes never have imagined. The best? The lighter necklace, skillfully brought into the jewelry realm at the Celine by Hedi Slimane show in a leather style or changed up in an extra large way at Rick Owens.

5. Bourgeois clothing chain

Playing with the the bourgeoisie norm, the châtelaine (an 18th century accessory worn on the belt by lords and ladies of the manor) has been reinvented by breaking the rules of the chic wardrobe, while being places in wide links on a belted blazer. More seriously, the clothing chain comes to dress the collar of a shirt to upgrade a classic look.

Walking in the footsteps of the wellness wave that has been shaking the jewel sphere for several years, celebrating the benefits of stones, the designers have come back to gems in their raw state, for a silhouette full of good vibes.

7. All you need is love

Subtly, expresivelys or passionately... how about we declare our love simply with a piece of jewelry? Either super sized version or covered in diamonds, the giant heart was spotted at Balenciaga, Chanel or Marc Jacobs. At Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, the heart pendant was worn on bare skin, right on the heart itself.

8. Into the wild

Wild animals, coming straight from the Savannah or the jungle, are to be taken this season (literally) in statement jewelry, to assert your wild side. In cuffs, necklaces or earrings, the creators have covered then in gold, diamonds or precious stones for an even more unique wildlife collection.

Two-toned at Chloé, as a thick link version by Bottega Veneta or revisiting its flagship anchor chain link at Hermès, the link collar will be worn close to the neck like a choker this season. This trend has already adopted in advance by all the fashion-forward guests leaving the shows this year.
