JEWELS FROM THE RUNWAY: Jewelry Details at Rodarte Fall Winter 2017 Ready-To-Wear Show

We thought about the book ‘Charlotte’s Web,’” explained designer Laura Mulleavy. “There’s a romance to the story that we used to read when we were children, and we first came up with the idea when we saw a black widow on our building’s outside. We said: ‘Let’s do a collection about ‘Charlotte’s Web’ — and leather.’ We wanted to use things that are very Rodarte.” (WWD.com)

This collection had a magical fairy tale quality to it. Rodarte designers Laura and Kate Mulleavy showcased metallic details in contrasting gold and silver filigree jewelry and adorned them with ruby and amethyst colored stones. Ornate cuff bracelets with gold tassels, large filigree chandelier earrings,  oversized floral and oval statement rings embellished the fingers, ears and arms of the models turning them into nymphs from the pages of fairy tales.

JEWELS FROM THE RUNWAY: Jewelry Details at Balmain Fall 2017 Ready-To-Wear Show

“It’s all about a return to the forces of nature. I wanted to create strong Amazons. Women’s power today is extremely important, and I think I reflect that with this collection. It’s very feminist,” Olivier Rousteing, Head Designer of Balmain said backstage (WWD.com)

Rousteing transformed the models into tribal goddesses with metallic  lip rings, leather cuff bracelets that were accented with gold studs or coins, chokers and tortoise shell and black lacquer colored minauderies with gold chain tassels that acted as necklaces.
