It’s finally here – today sees the global launch of the anticipated Pandora Spring 2016 collections! Entitled Poetic Blooms, Pandora’s new spring collection features pastel pinks and purples, and lots & lots of flowers – there are also new charms for the Pandora Disney and Pandora Essence lines, too.
As usual, I’m celebrating with a little commentary on and lots of live shots of all the new pieces! <3
Pandora Spring 2016 Release
The Pandora Spring release has been previewed to mixed responses to collectors – while it is pretty, it is undoubtedly and unashamedly derivative of Pandora’s previous collections. The Poetic Blooms charms themselves, for which the collection is named, are a collection of Pandora’s most popular floral designs put together into one charm. Nevertheless, there are some interesting new pieces making their debut – including a new threadless bracelet – and some absolutely gorgeous Shimmer muranos.
For a full overview of the charms coming out today, please see my preview here.
As usual, retailers have been uploading a lot of gorgeous live images to their social media pages, and I’ve picked out some of the clearest. The rings look rather gorgeous (the Floral Daisy Lace tempts me the most, however), and the new letter charms are also nice. One surprise for me was how nice the pink Shimmering Droplets looks in person. It is not for me, but I love the colour.
Pandora Disney Spring 2016 Release
The Pandora Disney Spring release is a fun one this year, with new charms for Alice in Wonderland, Tangled, Sleeping Beauty and more! There’s also a brand new bracelet. For a full look at the Pandora Disney Spring 2016 collection, please see my preview here.
North America has released the full set of charms today, and there are some great live shots of the new pieces.
Maximus doesn’t look too over-sized, which is great, and I think Aurora’s Dress works particularly well! The White Rabbit can look cute or a bit terrifying, depending on the shot, but I hear from people who have seen it in real life that it is pretty cute when you actually see it in person…
There’s also a selection of Pandora Disney Parks exclusive charms that are scheduled to come out this season – I’m not sure which of these are coming out today, but it’s worth keeping an eye on the Disney Store website in case any crop up that you might like..
Pandora Essence Spring 2016 Release
There’s only a small number of charms coming out for the Essence collection this season, but there are some exciting pieces included nevertheless – including, finally, a safety chain and a brand new Essence bangle. For full stock images, please see my preview here.
The new blue and pink crystal Essence charms are shown off to nice effect here – the safety chain looks larger, and less dainty, than I thought it would be, however.
You can also see a sneak peek at the new Essence bangle in these lovely photos:
I am not going to be able to go and see the new charms until the weekend, but I can hardly wait! :) It’s disappointing not to be able to go and buy my lovely Flower Garden murano, but the pink and purple Shimmer muranos are next on my list. Other must-haves include the new Essence safety chain, the Poetic Blooms pendant for my pink oxi floral bracelet and the Maximus charm from the Disney collection.
I’m disappointed to hear reports that the new threadless bracelet is not designed to hold more than 5-7 charms, like a bangle or leather bracelet, but I will be picking one up to try nevertheless. I’ll let you know how it goes, of course. ^^ I’m also tempted by the White Rabbit from the Disney line, the Dazzling Daisy Fairy and the Spring Time pendant… we’ll see if anything catches my eye when I see it all in person!
