Anna, from our Solihull store, reviews the latest collection from ever popular Pandora!
Spring is always a busy time at fabulous, filled with anticipation as we await the arrival of the new collections from many of our designers. This year I had the pleasure of being invited to London by Pandora to see the Spring/Summer Collection in the flesh and learn a bit about the inspiration behind this year’s stories and the history of many of the materials used throughout.
Each year the buyers for Pandora UK select two themes from the Danish collection that they believe the UK will love and this year they’ve definitely got it right! This season’s theme is ‘Floral Nostalgia’. Taking its inspiration from nature and the delicate details of the Art Nouveau period there is definitely a vintage feel to this collection, with the wide use of feminine flowers and Pearls throughout.
The Art Nouveau period (1890-1905) gathered inspiration from nature and is widely recognisable by the delicate organic shapes and patterns used. There is also a very feminine feel present throughout many designs and Pandora seem to have encapsulated this period perfectly with many of the jewellery stories heavily influenced by this decorative concept. From roses and pearls to dragonflies and dark oxidised Silver you are sure to find something you adore in this collection.
The charms take on a more care-free ethos with the tag line ‘Embrace your sweetest memories of Summer gone by’; and with the majority of them being highly polished, they really do give off a ‘bright and breezy’ feel. Add in an on-trend pastel Murano Glass bead and we defy anyone not to start counting down the days ‘til Summer!
And if you thought it couldn’t get any better they have released some of our favourite Gold charms in Silver … for a fraction of the price you definitely won’t feel guilty treating yourself!
The new collection will be in fabulous stores by the end of this week.
