Fashion Trend Report 10 of 10: 5 Ways to Accessorize Artistically Inspired Attire

Key spring ready-to-wear clothing shows in four cities—New York, London, Milan, and Paris—took place from Sept. 2 through Oct. 1, resulting in a fresh crop of clothing trends. Jewelers need to take note in order to stock cases with the right pieces to complement the necklines and silhouettes of the season ahead. Active wear was among the spring 2015 clothing trends outlined in Fashion Trend Report: 10 Spring 2015 Clothing Trends Jewelers Must Know and Why. Here are 5 jewels to accessorize with artistically inspired clothes.

Artistic Inspirations

The phrase artistic license was well used during the spring shows. Isabel Marant was inspired by the graphic works of painters Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies to make tribal prints, Andrew Gn dreamed of Monet in painted water lilies that were digitally modified, and Derek Lam 10 Crosby found enlightenment in collage artists Fred Free and Sigrid Sandström in bonded crepe jackets “evoking Free’s and Sandström’s use of masking tape or gesso,” according to Style.com. Go-to jewelry should feature playful color combinations—think of rainbow-in-a-blender-like outfits from Chanel—metal-intense looks for balance or pieces with pops of color taken from prints.
