Fashion Season, our favorite time of the year here at Coleman Douglas Pearls! Back to back weeks of designers showcasing the latest trends for the upcoming season in all the main fashion hubs, London, New York, Paris and Milan. We were particularly excited about Paris fashion week due to the abundance of Pearls seen on the catwalk.
Leading the charge was of course Chanel, carrying Coco’s legacy into the 21st Century with ropes and ropes of pearls! Paired with a monochrome look and flowers, the pearls really shone but also proved a big hit when paired with this seasons pink and blue hues. Pearls were not limited to just ropes either, pearl chokers and hat straps were also in abundance on the runway.
Also embracing the pearl trend was Olivier Rousteing, the creative director at Balmain. Here the dresses were encrusted in pearls, with models such as Gigi Hadid showing them off in the best possible light. Again we saw similar use of colour to Chanel with striking monochrome dresses, as well as pastel pinks and baby blues. The pearl encrusted clothing was not only limited to the ladies – Kanye West sported a cream pearl encrusted bomber jacket proving once again pearls are not just a girl’s best friend!
Pearl accessories were also spotted on other catwalks with unusual geometric design necklaces at Stella Macartney and pearl encrusted shoes at Gucci. Dries van Noten also had a selection of accessories to pick from from pearl scarf pins to pearl rings. Pearl’s were also spilling out onto the streets with many an on trend fashionista sporting the look – our favourite has to be this pearl bag!
