“Color, hemlines, prints: unlike New York, where many brands stuck to their signatures, London was a melting pot of ideas where everything seemed up for discussion.” – Vogue.co.uk

Much of the chatter at London Fashion Week centered on Burberry’s massive see-now, buy now show, which featured 83 fall looks available in stores immediately. But, as British Vogue reported, “there were plenty of other designers who offered game-changing looks for spring-summer 2017.”

Let’s take a sneak peek at OBJ’s three top spring/summer 2017 London Fashion Week  jewelry trends. Two of them, which involve earrings worn in unconventional ways, are sure to catch on by spring. The third…well, it’s a longshot from the “ugly is the new trendy” department.

You be the judge.

The Single Earring

Come spring, the bold, new way to wear your earrings is singly….and the larger, the better. Our favorite is the life-sized olive leaf earring shown at the Mary Katrantzou spring-summer collection.

The popular fashion designer turned to her Greek heritage, favoring Ancient Greek pottery-style prints in riotous colors.

Her single gold leaf adorned nearly every model that walked the runway. Look for it to be widely copied next season.

Mismatched Statement Earrings

At Simone Rocha, mismatched crystal or pearl earrings were the perfect foils for ethereal prints and solids. Somehow they made the statement “don’t take us too seriously,” but the designer price tags may indicate otherwise.

Meanwhile, at the JW Anderson spring collection, single or mismatched earrings were fashioned from dozens of tiny silver bells.

In London, nary a matched pair of earrings could be found—anywhere!

Bejeweled Crocs

The Scottish designer Christopher Kane presented a much-heralded collection at the Tate Britain museum, but it was almost overshadowed by his bizarre choice of footwear.

Crocs, described by Vogue as “the so-called ugly shoes beloved of chefs, hospital workers and surfers on account of their ‘spray clean’ qualities,’” may have crossed over from the dark side to become the darlings of the London season.

“Kane’s take was rocks on Crocs, marble-printed rubber pimped with sparkling rocks and crystals. (They’re known in the biz as Jibbitz, or shoe charms.),” reported Vogue.

At press time, we are still attempting to find out how much these designer slip-ons will cost in the better department stores.

In the meantime, you might want to fire up your glue gun to rock your own pair of Crocs for spring.

Or maybe not…
