Today’s post sees my (slightly late!) monthly round-up of all Pandora news and rumours for August! This encompasses all the key dates for the upcoming month, but also includes little bits and pieces of news that didn’t necessarily merit their own post.
The big news for August 2014 is the release of the much-anticipated Autumn 2014 collection. This collection has met with some really positive reactions from Pandora fans, and I personally can’t wait to see it in person. Aside from that, there’s not an awful lot to include this month, as there aren’t any big promotions coming up. In the meantime, the Pandora Pre-Autumn 2014 collection just launched at the end of July, so you have a month to ponder any purchases from that collection before the Autumn collection itself hits!
Pandora Autumn/Fall 2014 Collection
The biggest event for Pandora collectors in August has to be the release of the brand’s Autumn 2014 collection, right at the end of the month. The collection is set to debut on the 28th of August, and is once again a very seasonal offering from Pandora, drawing on autumnal motifs for colour scheme and designs.
Honey-coloured muranos complement shimmering leaf designs, while contrastingly cool midnight blue pieces offer a representation of the transition into longer nights and cooler days. For those who aren’t as interested in those more decorative pieces, there are also some fabulous individual charms, including majestic animals and new Japanese and Korean Doll pendants. I am personally really excited for this collection in particular, as it seems to me have a little more character and flair than previous offerings so far this year. While Pandora have kept to their current trend of mirroring the seasons in their collections, the Autumn 2014 release seems to have some more unique pieces that don’t just draw on autumnal themes. It offers the best of both worlds, perhaps.
I’ve also found a couple more live shots from the collection, including one of the sweet Rocking Horse. What I wouldn’t give to go to one of these events! ;)
Pandora Essence Autumn 2014
Also making its debut on the 28th of August is the Pandora Essence Fall 2014 collection. I particularly love this release, and it’s another reason that I am increasingly tempted to get an Essence bracelet. There’s so much scope contained with the collection’s twelve new charms, with a variety of styles and textures offered – the charms include four new stone charms, four new silvers, and, most excitingly, four new two-tone designs! The designs themselves are stunning and serve to enrich the Essence line in a way that I feel the Summer 2014 Zodiac collection couldn’t.
If you want to have a look at the new charms in detail, check out my full preview of the collection here! There are also some live shots of the charms available, too.
Pandora September Bracelet Promo for the US
While the next US silver bracelet promotion is not scheduled until later in September, I found a sneak peek of a poster for the event that reveals something worth noting, I think. Interestingly, this poster includes the Essence bracelet, suggesting that it will be included in the promotion:
The inclusion of the Pandora Essence bracelet in the US’s extremely popular silver bracelet promotion has been a consistent request from fans, and this seems like the perfect way to get people to make the leap and try the Essence range. This poster looks pretty promising, so fingers crossed! ;)
As I’ve said, I’m eager to see the Autumn 2014 collections in person, particularly the new Essence pieces. The latter half of 2014 is set to be a really strong one for Pandora, and I love what they’ve come up with. There are some truly exciting pieces coming up this year, what with a new two-tone bangle and a two-tone Essence bracelet set to be released (although there is no exact confirmation on when exactly that will be), too!
Are you excited for the upcoming Autumn 2014 collections? Would you be interested in an Essence bracelet GWP?
