L-R: Marchesa, Versace, KTZ, Missoni, Marani, Anna Sui
In contrast to the pared back looks of Geo-Minimalism, Opulence is an (almost) no holds barred approach to adornment with plenty of scope for interpretation. Gold underpinned many of the catwalk looks, setting off vibrant coloured stones and richly hued crystals to striking effect.
Adventures in texture, scale and surface detail all contributed to lavish looks that included Rococo trimmings and Medusa medallions at Versace, oversized chandelier earrings at Marchesa, fingers full of cabochon bedecked rings at Missoni and remarkable bubble-like neckwear at KTZ.
Interpret the look: Stone encrusted jewels and big gems are a good starting point. Update your inventory with new gemstones in line with the season’s colour palette.
