Waist-up dressing has been de riguer throughout the year, in the Covid-age of Zoom. This has been beneficial to jewelry lovers where video conferencing -not to mention masks- draws attention to the face, but for 2021 designers are suggesting many chic ways to create a sort of halo effect and color is the news of the season. It won’t only brighten your day, but your zoom recipients will also appreciate a pop of neon at the neck- Chanel, Versace– or the ear- Valentino. Chokers were the length of choice- a prominent focal point on zoom- and silver links were everywhere. Rokh had key earrings, while at Givenchy there were seriously elevated locks. Also customized were pendants that referenced brands’ icons. The Prada triangle swayed from an earring, Chanel and Jacquemus presented miniatures of their signature bags, and MM6 Maison Margiela strung a Tabi boot charm on a black ribbon.

Things were trending more abstract at Miu Miu and Acne Studios, where pure form was given preference, while at Christian Dior, Coach, Schiaparelli, and elsewhere designers brought the figurative into focus- crafting birds, boats, flowers, and stars that won’t lose their luster. And being linked in will have an altogether different meaning, where no chain equals no gain. Party on top, sweats below- into every jewelry box some bling should swing. Designers played with pure forms for spring, taking geometric shapes to new places. You won’t find dog collars, or locks and keys, and ball bearings at Home Depot with these tools of the trade. With the new vaccine, eventually you’ll get back on the streets where your rocks can roll with those amazing Manolo’s you definitely never zoomed in.
