Shop the Trend: Pearls

We will always appreciate the classic touch that a delicate strand of pearls fashioned into a necklace or bracelet can provide. The way they lay across our collarbones and sit in beautiful silk boxes, they typically conjure up thoughts of decades past or something to wear on special occasions.

However, for Fall 2017, (and from what we saw during our most recent market appointments, well into Spring 2018 too), pearls (both faux and real) are being splashed and scattered along everything from blazers and denim to handbags and loafers making them accessible for anyone to wear in anyway they want to. They’re here to make a statement as seen clustered along sunglass frames by A-Morir Thorton and Magama rings or to add that little something extra to oxfords by coliac or slipper pumps by Nicholas Kirkwood. They draw the eye in for a double-take along the seams of jackets and hidden in embroidery of skirts and of course dangle spectacularly from ears and diamond encrusted bangles.
