Silver has never lost its lustre. The everlasting semi-precious metal in all its forms is still taking centre stage across fashion and accessories.
It eludes to the stars, the sea, a silvery moon – it can shout anything from edgy with attitude, to pure princess. As a statement or a complement to any look, silver still rocks! Silver is simply sparkling in jewellery, fashion, handbags, and silver locks are such a glamourous look for hair. As we edge a little closer to a very sci-fi sounding 2020, long ago predicted Star Trek-type fashion pages are not quite as spacesuit we thought. Silver now nods to our former heydays, just as much as does the future.
Finest vintage filigree is in vogue, as equally as luxurious Scandinavian minimalist pieces, as local and international jewellery designers are embracing silver as a medium to get creative. Silver is youthful, but also timeless, suiting all skin types and tones in jewellery. Swarovski crystals, pearls and semi-precious gems always beguile from their beds of silver. With developments in materials and techniques, silver is cleverly embossed or blended into the colour wheel.
Shimmering silver is woven into delicate cotton knits, embellished into soft leathers of the latest summer sandals, melding with blush, lilacs and baby blues to create the iridescent appeal of a seashell. There is much variance, from palest white-silver or rose-hued, to an almost pewter.
The silvery wow-factor is now as much for day as for night. Once glittering up for a glam evening was the thing, now it’s almost mandatory to exude a little, or a lot, of shimmer in the sunlight. Mixing it up with other metallics also creates an original ensemble. Gold loves silver too.
