Danielle and Jodie Snyder’s Dannijo jewelry line has always been colorful, layered and irreverent, but for their Spring 2014 collection ~ which has just launched and coincides with the brand’s fifth anniversary (and first-ever bag line!) ~ the sisters updated those signatures with a darker-tinted twist. Employing onyx metal bases and a toughed-up, repeating railroad motif, the pieces have a refreshed strength and sophistication. Black and white themes lend a tribalistic bent, as if each item had been carved from dark horn and sun-bleached bone.
In their Spring/Summer 2014 trend report, “Traces of Time”, Swarovski highlights the increased focus on the age in our society and the impact of this trend on a global scale. Style is shaped by a sense of nostalgia and becomes both a reminder of past paths that we have walked and a celebration of days to come. These four themes encompass the myriad of ways that the progression of time inspires every facet of our lives.
