La Selva Aw18
Just landed! Our new-season collection is here
The team at NAJO is so proud to bring you La Selva, our first new jewellery collection for 2018. After many months of development, the range is now online and ready for you to explore.
Full of exotic details and colours inspired by the legendary rainforests of Brazil, La Selva takes its name from the Spanish word for ‘jungle’. Read more about our inspiration behind this collection.
How to wear La Selva
Unlike NAJO’s core lines and signature collections, which are renowned for their timeless appeal, our seasonal collections take a more fashion-forward focus. That’s not to say these pieces don’t have enduring appeal, just that we have curated the collection to resonate with current-season trends. While inspiration comes from the natural world and our worldwide travels, we also pay attention to the work of top designers, artists and creatives of the moment.
Here are our stylist tips for coordinating key La Selva pieces with the hottest catwalks trends this AW18 season.
Trend 1: Hints of silver
A strong look emerging from the international shows is hints of silver, particularly via textured accessories and embellishments. The pre-fall collection of Los Angeles-based Brock features unabashedly feminine prints, colours, frills and ruching layered with silver-embellished belts. The effect is at once edgy and romantic, perfectly attuned to the zeitgeist of empowered women celebrating their true femininity.
Our newest luscious rose gold and pearl fine jewellery, mixing gleaming sterling silver with blushing rose gold plate and glowing pearl. Our Jupiter necklace and matching ring, for example, are a triumphant expression of feminine strength and modern beauty.
This romantic combination of fashion and jewellery makes a glamorous yet soft look for evening wear.
Trend 2: Bold block colours
If you’re going to go for bold colour, be sure to go all out. Blocks of colour on colour, as seen at Emilio Pucci recently, will resonate with confident, worldly women who don’t shy away from making a statement. For us, the colour of choice this season is green, to evoke our jungle vibe.
When you start with a base of bold green colour-blocked clothing you just have to keep going. Pile on even more colour in the form of gleaming gemstones, such as light-green prehnite and jade-green chalcedony. Set against the clean brightness of our polished sterling silver, these greens are crisp and contemporary. Try our Rainforest choker, chunky cuff and matching cocktail ring.
Bold, warming colour makes the perfect choice for day wear, especially as the days start to get greyer and cooler.
Trend 3: Monochrome texture
Our favourite casual-chic look from the catwalks this season comes from Max Mara. For those who can’t stomach too much colour, add interest instead in the form of exquisite texture, such as chunky knitted sweaters under fine knit pants suits in androgynous layers of grey.
Soften the masculine edges with delicate and fine jewellery in similar simple-yet-textured designs. The beaten silver work of our new Amarres Wide Bangle is reminiscent of the way sunlight dapples through a rainforest canopy. Minimalists will also appreciate the tactile allure of our spherical and textured silver Claudette Earrings and matching sterling silver pendant necklace.
To the office, or with jeans and a t-shirt for a casual weekend breakfast.
Trend 4: The anti-trend
Forever jewellery needs a flawless and timeless fashion partner, such as Joseph. Few can pull off luxe minimalism like this landmark British brand.
Its deceptively simple silhouettes make the perfect companions for our best-selling and perennial Signature Collection. These are classic jewellery pieces for true individuals who know their own mind, and define their own style regardless of fashion. Case in point: our Australian designed Naj ‘O’ Bangle, which has been a part of the NAJO collection almost since Jo Tory began the brand over 30 years ago.
Anytime, and forever.
