Catwalk Reviews

Catwalk Jewellery Highlights – Paris Menswear Week S/S 2014 JUN 26th-30th

It’s recently all about size that matters so to speak, at least pondering on what we’ve seen coming from London and Milan – where some bulky and XL eye-catching proposals where shown.

Paris saw also some extra-lengths this season, explored in necklaces of light metal chains, more or less embelished as at Lanvin and Alexis Mabille. Elie Top opted for the first to bring in military inspired pendants –  projectiles, mini-grenades and shapes reminding of ID plates – contrasting beautifully in copper and gold, while at Alexis Mabille, everything was more of a delicate nature, with soft-toned tassels and beads made into long, way down to the waist neckpieces.

Over at Maison Martin Margiela, actual ID plates and rings could also be found on silver chains, but here the sizes were quite the regular ones and overall the pieces presented a more commercial aspect – straightforward and simple yet nicely made.

South-Korean designer Juun J. on the other hand, played largely with volumes that went from skinny structures to oversized sportswear looks, all combined with feminine cuts. Within this spirit, some of the models wore extra-sized round and square-shaped minimal cuffs that came in black, white and gold-plated in what was one great show.
