Bonkers about Bangles


This week’s summer story is on the subject of Bangles, which are undoubtedly this season’s wardrobe staple when it comes to accessorizing.
Top catwalk shows from designers across the globe were littered with wrist wear in an array of forms, with the implicit premise that any statement summer outfit required a form of jewellery equal in its boldness to complete the look.
So with three key summer trends in mind, here is a pick of just some of the bangles we have to offer at Argent.

Sportswear
Think minimal and futuristic with clean lines and simple shapes, materials may include plastics, a typical trait of designers such as Sarah Packington and Lesley Strickland, but also an adventurous and cutting edge use of silver and
gold plate with Stubbs and Co’s textile like bangles, with simple twists and knotted detailing.

 


Ethnic
Boldness in print and in colour, oversized statement pieces with a use of varied contemporary materials such as wood and plastic perfectly fit the criteria of both Lesley Strickland and The Branch. Whilst these designers choice of materials is opposing they both remain highly similar in their organic appearance.


Ladylike

Elegance and intricacy are the two main principles held by this seasons ‘ladylike’ clean image when it comes to jewellery. Such class is realized through the use of polished metals such as gold and silver, which stand alone and proud with Ntinga’s magnetic mesh bangles. Meanwhile wrist wear from Nomination and The Branch sees the use of gold as a setting for semi precious stones such as agates and quartzs, Nomination’s ‘Extension’ bracelets offer a selection of natural hard stones, 18ct yellow gold detailing and stainless steel for an affordable and classic Italian aesthetic.

You can shop all of these looks and more on our website and instore.
