Trend-update A/W 2018-2019
We get so much energy and inspiration from the upcoming autumn. Do you know this feeling? The cold brings brightness, new ideas and… LOTS OF NEW JEWELLERY!
In this blog you will read about the trends for this autumn and we’ll share some ideas on how to integrate these trends into your jewellery.
We are oh so happy that this trend is going with us into autumn! We never get enough of animal prints. Print wise, you can literally choose any animal print, from leopard to zebra to tiger. You can integrate this animal print with all of your jewellery. The real trendsetters will literally go all out with this print and wear it everywhere. Wear any kind of animal print and combine them with each other. Would you rather go for a more subtle look? Pick your favourite out of our Cuoio animal print collection for example!
GO BIG OR GO HOME! Disco is back! This autumn we see lots of huge earrings passing by. Big creole earrings for example and 80’s influences. Everything must shimmer and shine! Disco balls and hoops are the key words of this trend.
Thankfully, bangles will also stay with us for this fall and winter. We already saw the bangles this summer in fashion, but this trend stays with us through the cold as well. And… The chunkier, the better! (As big and as many as possible). You should definitely check out our stainless steel bangles. There are very subtle, small bangles which are very fun to combine with one another or with other bracelets. But we also have bigger bangle bracelets, with which you’ll definitely steal the show!
A real trend you will spot a lot are big statement necklaces. Just think: the bigger the better, so really big charms, big beads, wide leather or even better: chains! We see that these statement necklaces are worn on top of a turtleneck, so the necklace stands out even better! Also, daily products like keys, caps of bottles and lids will also be transformed into cool jewellery!
We also saw a lot of silver jewellery in the A/W 2018-2019 trends. And by this we don’t mean change your gold jewellery collection for a silver jewellery collection… This trend has kind of a sci-fi edge. Which means that you should think of silver charms of moons, planets, stars and so on. And glitters are of course al-ways a good idea… IT’S MAGICAL!
In all of these new trends, we also saw a lot of western influences. HOWDY! So get your feathers out of that closet! How cool is it to pimp up your jewellery with the most beautiful, colourful feather charms? Choose, for example, for trendy autumn colours, like marine blue and green or go all out with fierce colours! Everything is possible with this Western theme.
The leaves will soon fall from trees again, but that doesn’t mean they will disappear completely. Certainly not, because the ‘fall leaves’ will be shown in our jewellery! Imagine cool leave shaped charms attached to a necklace or charm bracelet. It’s also really cool to attach such a ‘leave charm’ to an earring!
This trend came along earlier in the statement necklaces trend, but it is too important to be called out so little. Of course everybody has an image when you think of ‘chains’: rings that are connected together. And you are going to see these ‘chains’ a lot this fall. Think about coarse necklaces and bracelets of belcher chain or ball chain and also link chains will be seen a lot. Also very nice to combine with DQ European metal charms.
We also are going to see a lot of (semi-precious) gemstones and pearls in fashion. The gemstones are often combined with the sci-fi theme, but we also really like to combine these stones with macramé bead cord or DQ European leather. Which stone suits you best?
Last, but not least, we came along a few different stringing materials that can’t be missed in your 2018-2019 autumn and winter collection! We saw a lot of leather and silk on the catwalk. Luxurious materials, where you can do anything with. You can integrate this with all of the above called trends.
Hopefully, our hints and tips will help you optimize your shop, web shop or just your own jewellery collection to the new autumn and winter trends!
