Jewellery for every day, simple and modular shapes, suggestions and inspirations from the sea world are some of the ‘must-have’ trends for the coming season, according to styles presented at this year’s OROAREZZO 2019.
The exhibition, organised by Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), promotes the best of ‘Made of Italy’ and comes to a close tomorrow at Arezzo Fiere e Congressi, with over 500 exhibiting brands showcasing their best new ideas for summer 2019.
Highlights included ‘prêt-à-porter’, easy to wear jewellery with simple and geometric shapes, ‘80s inspired: round, square, rectangular and triangular, small for every-day wear and showy and conspicuous.
An ‘essential chic’ accessory, reversible and modular, with long necklaces coming back into fashion, drop earrings and matching necklaces and bracelets.
The ‘combination’ trend will dominate both in terms of colour and material: from two- and three-coloured solutions mainly in soft colours, such as yellow, white and pink, to matching materials, from gold to silver, from precious and semi-precious stones to costume jewellery in brass and polished, enamel-effect surfaces.
And while last year saw the exploit of silver, 2019 summer’s real must-have will be the gold, which returns to play a leading role for both refined and simple creations.
And the new collections have also extended their themes.
Suggestions and inspirations come from the sea world with natural and mythological marine creatures: abstract and sinuous shapes that recall the movement of the waves, shells, starfish, mermaids, combinations with coral and colours in shades of light and dark blue.
