Against the background of the already habitual trend for large and catchy jewellery (just remember what the stars wore at the Oscar-2015 ceremony), the counter-trend for laconic products is naturally gaining strength.
The passion for jewellery minimalism has become especially impetuous since the second half of 2014. Nowadays, minimalistic jewellery is the most visible phenomenon in the fashion industry.
What does jewellery look like in a laconic style, what is their philosophy and how to wear them so that the image does not seem too modest and strict?
The trend for conciseness
Some fashion experts believe that the reason for the return to the motto “less is more” is “tiredness from excessive materialism and imposed consumerism.” According to others, the matter is in some excess of massive jewellery, the trend for which has been delayed. Either way, miniature jewellery is a reality to be learned to handle.
The very fashion for a laconic style is far from news. In the 1960s, Pierre Cardin brought into fashion the famous cropped “Mod dresses” with the model Twiggy, who became a style icon for her generation.
Then, in the 1970s, Halston unveiled sleek silhouettes and diving v-neck blouses, as well as monochrome jersey dresses and stretch jumpsuits. 1970s looks with deep triangular V-necklines and thin Y-chains-necklaces, making their mistresses look slimmer.
Simple small ornaments attract the eyes of others no less than large and catchy ones, causing the desire to “take a closer look.” That is why it will not be possible to “hide” behind them. They carry character, beauty and sophistication, as well as almost always – some kind of “message” about you. Often one of the most beloved pieces of jewellery belongs to this type, without which the girl tries not to leave the house.
jewellery in a minimalistic style (which is natural) is closely intertwined with the trend for jewellery geometricism that we described a little earlier. Very often, these laconic products have geometric shapes – triangles, circles or cubes. jewellery primitivism can also be considered a “relative” of minimalism – often designers use certain techniques typical of a naive style in their laconic jewellery.
Fine and fragile-looking jewellery satisfies not only aesthetic needs, but also emotional ones. If you look deeper, then these rings and pendants, as if implanted into the skin, are a full-fledged part of the “female universe”, the inner intimate world, hidden from prying eyes.
Paradoxically, some Western jewellery designers claim that miniature jewellery, just like massive ones, is aimed at the same strong and independent women with a developed sense of style. They believe that a woman is required to have the same self-confidence in order to wear both catchy jewellery and emphatically laconic. It is the latter that “requires” from a woman knowledge of her body and a certain inner harmony in order to combine miniature jewellery in accordance with her attitude.
