Global Fashion Week

Wednesday, 2 October 2019 4:56:18 PM Australia/Sydney

As one of the fashion industry’s biggest months, September heralds the Spring/Summer runway shows for the “Big Four” global fashion capitals. Top designers in New York, London, Milan & Paris take their turn to host the exclusive fashion media set for a week each, setting the tone for the next year’s Spring/Summer season.

With the last of the runway shows having just concluded, here are the top jewellery trends that caught our eye:

And while we’re at it, here were the key fashion trends from each city:

New York

New York

The crisp white shirt was a strong feature among a number of collections, including Tibi and Bevsa. Free from embellishment or assymetrical styling, the white business shirt was a strong versatile piece while being far from basic.

Draping also added a sculptural element to the collections of Proenza Schouler and Oscar De La Renta. Beautifully contoured to the body and designed to accentuate curves, this trend sees the revival of effortless chic.

Voluminous silhouettes in dramatic black palettes were also presented by Oscar De La Renta, presenting a new look moving away from the brights and pastels of seasons past.

London

Heading across to Europe, the draping that featured across some of the NYFW shows were also showcased by the likes of JW Anderson and Richard Malone, where ultra-feminine designs played on fluidity and form.

As an accessory that may have previously been perceived to be outdated, the silk scarf made a reappearance layered over outerwear at the Burberry, Preen & Erdem shows. No longer restricted to being solely a neck scarf, this piece was styled in new ways, from a dress to simply tied around the waist.

Dramatic elegance was an underlying theme seen at Erdem, Simone Rocha and Molly Goddard. Combining crisp cottons with volume building techniques, like layering & gathering, created dramatic shapes that spoke of opulence.

Milan

Milan

Tropical prints made a come-back featuring a new take on florals and leaf prints. The easy highlight of the week was Jennifer Lopez walking for Versace in a variation of her iconic jungle print dress she previously wore for the Grammy’s in 2000. So highly searched was the dress back then, that it urged Google to invent the ‘image search’ feature.

70’s day dressing also made a comeback with hippy vibes and floaty fabrics. Maxi dresses and ruffle details were executed in warm colour palettes in this nostalgic resurgence.

‘High Shine’ was a key trend, particularly for evening wear, as designers such Emporio Armani & Fendi highlighted pieces with sparkly crystal detail and silvery iridescent fabrics.

Paris

Paris

Florals featured heavily at the Dior Show, referencing an underlying message of sustainability and the fragile state of the natural world. Beautifully embroidered prints also featured in Dries Van Noten’s collection.

Dramatic white silhouettes with an excess of fabric were seen at Valentino, Nina Ricci and Louis Vuitton – with details focused around the shoulders. Houses like Balenciaga and Altuzarra featured sharp tailoring in bold colours.

New Earrings for Summer!

Friday, 13 September 2019 11:36:20 AM Australia/Sydney

Introducing Palomita

Palomita

Fluid lines. Whispers of colour. Ethereal beauty.

 

This is Palomita.

 

A new spring capsule range of exquisite hanging earrings.

 

As delicate as silk, these fine pairs will elevate every summer outfit with bursts of seasonal colour in the form of gemstone beads.

Vanity Amazonite

Amazonite is a soft sea green, cool as mint.
In the Vanity Earring, the cabochon bead is threaded onto a long, continuous and gently curved wire of 14k yellow-gold plated sterling silver. A long-limbed design that sways sensuously when worn. A match made for sun-kissed shoulders and flirty dresses.

 Pearl & Aquamarine

Aquamarine is a translucent dusky blue, recalling the sky as it edges toward twilight.
The pastel gemstone is complemented by the warm pink of 14k rose-gold plated sterling silver wire in the Clarity Earring. Another new clean-lined hook design, the Clarity tapers into an overlapping flourish, like an elegant stroke of calligraphy crafted in precious metal.

The most minimalist of NAJO’s new-season earring designs is the Amity Pearl Earring. A barely there straight stem of fine sterling silver rose gold plated wire is punctuated by a luminous freshwater white pearl. This one is as at home in the office as it is on the dancefloor.

Humility

The Humility Earring, the smallest profile in our new capsule collection. A fresh take on the huggie, it comes with a fixed freshwater pearl at the base of the design. A timeless earring for effortless chic.

 

Love the pearl bead, but prefer the long sinuous glamour of the Vanity Earring? No problem! We’ve brought a variety of metals and gemstones to our new SS19 earring designs so you can find your ultimate summer style story in lustrous sterling silver, or plated with 14-karat yellow gold or rose gold.

Bling for dads!

Monday, 26 August 2019 11:33:12 AM Australia/Sydney

No, we don’t make male-specific jewellery but surely the concept of gendered accessories is SOO last season, right? Our SIGNA collection is as unisex as jewellery can be, with NAJO’s chunky sterling silver Round Signet Ring or classic Oval Signet Ring, our super simple Ribbon Ring, or our military-inspired Maxi Tag Necklace.

Ultra-cool dads might embrace fashion and layer their tag necklaces in size and shape, adding a Mini Tag Necklace or the Orbit Major Necklace and the Orbit Minor Necklace.

Gift Ideas for Dad

Think Tom Cruise in Top Gun (particularly good timing with the reboot due out next year). If Dad REALLY wants to channel Cruise in all his 1980s glory, then the way to go is one chain, multiple tags. Our Mini Tag, Maxi Tag, Orbit Minor Charm and Orbit Major Charm are all sold individually and without their matching chains, allowing you to mix and match or find a more affordable gift for Dad that’s still totally made for keeps. 

Gifts for Dad

To this tag ensemble we love the idea of mixing in the three-dimensional charm of the Pandora's Box Necklace, the perfect place for sentimental Dad to stash his toddler’s secret love note or a lock of baby hair.

Father's Day 2019

Of course, we can’t talk the SIGNA collection without mentioning the best bit: it’s ALL entirely engravable! Personalise your man-friendly gifts in sterling silver with a simple initial or two, or a set of digits that are especially meaningful to him. Baby’s birthdays, anniversary, the date he bought his first Camaro… we won’t judge.

After all, what dad doesn’t love a gift from the heart, instead of boxers, socks or a tie?
