All the Jewelry at Milan Fashion Week Spring 2016 - Part One - Folklore Meets the Modern Woman

Posted: Sep 28 2015

Unlike London and New York, Milan is shaping up to be a Fashion Week with runway collections overflowing with jewelry and accessories. There is still hope for BIJOUX! Earrings dominated the runways but brooches and necklaces were still very much in play. It's clear the 70s is at the forefront next season with the mainstay bohemian looks still present only this time it's less hippie and more 70s stylish career woman incorporating modernism in her boho look.

I love the crystal, glitzy brooches found here on Les Copains' contemporary looks. It gives it an old-school glamour, don't you think?

C'est clair - this look is oh so boho. I do love the mix of sexy lingerie dresses and the conservative tunics. The colours are earthy and the matte gold jewelry conjures up Morocco and Turkish influences.

Great Gatsby meets Russian Folklore - pretty much sums up these looks! The embellished hair pins and earrings are sweet and can't wait to see more people adorning such opulence!


To be honest, I'm not familiar with this designer but the handmade, crafty jewelry earned a spot in my blog - the mini leather pouch pendant and tassel bracelet are adorable!

I remember wearing these fabric chokers in the 90s - this choker trend is on its way back in a big way, it seems!

This collection brought back memories of Gianni Versace's collection of yesteryear with the seashells and cut out looks. The lilac and green number in gladiator style especially reminds me of Gianni's aesthetic but hey all I really care about is the Jewelry!! The single earring, the large clips, chunky cuff and choker are all plusses for moi!

I'm in love with the second pale blue skirt - it's flirty and rock 'n roll at the same time.  She looks like a flamenco rockstar!! There was not a lot of jewelry but the pieces made their own statement as fringy solo earrings and a golden ear party!

Subtle and feminine, it was worth a mention for the layering aspect. Good to see that layering and long necklaces are still IN. 


The jewelry is modern but I included here because of the fashion styling - the suede fringe and posse-fitted shirt dress is very 70s. Actually, this look is exactly how I pictured the 70s woman transitioning into the "man's world".

This is our 80s rocker chick meets the 90s grunge girl entry - silver chain body jewelry and hardware statement pieces get my heart racing! The feather dress with crystal butterfly pendant is just perfect!

Sleek and contemporary jewelry - it's a bit too simple for me but hey it's not all about me!!
