The launch of the Pandora Summer 2016 collection is getting ever closer, and I’m following up my recent high-quality preview of the collection with some detailed live shots and beautiful campaign images in this post! :)
The collection is due out on the 2nd of June and features the usual tropical beachy themes, accompanied by some more unusual oriental charms. There are some stunning individual pieces in this release, and I am really looking forward to getting started on Summer reviews!
(Also… just how gorgeous is this campaign image of the Flower Garden murano! Hurry up June!)
Pandora Summer 2016 Live Shots
First of all, we have a great selection of live close-up images: these photos are published with the very kind permission of Patty Wu; please do not reproduce them without permission/credit!
Most of the beads seem pretty true to their stock images, and there aren’t too many real surprises here. I particularly love the bright reds; the Oriental Bloom dangle looks nicer in person than I originally thought.
The Pandora Club Charm for 2016 has been a hit with collectors, meeting with a very positive response! This is another of my collection ‘must-haves’.
And last, but not least – the lovely Flower Garden muranos! You can really see the extent of the variation between different examples in this image. I’m not too surprised to see this, seeing as there’s so much detail in this charm and they are all handmade. I think I will probably try and end up with two slightly different ones, as I think all the different variations look rather nice!
Pandora Summer 2016 Campaign Images
I also have some new campaign images from the collection for some extra inspiration!
This one in particular is lovely, and a great look at some of the new blue beads in a natural light (click to enlarge it). If you zoom in, you can see what a pretty, crisp minty-blue the new leather bracelet is. It looks great with the new Parrot!
Next up, we have a series of Pandora’s official campaign bracelet stylings. I notice that they’ve put red beads on the honeysuckle pink leather, which is exactly what I wanted to do with mine; encouragingly, it looks rather nice!
Finally, we have some beautiful extra images of the new charms. The Frosty Mint murano is one I am dying to see in person. I have the perfect bracelet idea for it, providing it is a delicate soft blue/grey as it is here. Fingers crossed!
This was kind of part 2 of my updated Pandora Summer 2016 preview; all the colours in this collection are so vibrant and beautiful that it’s great to have a close-up look at all the new charms! The Flower Garden murano stands out by a long shot; it looks prettier and prettier in every photo I’ve seen. The Frosty Mint murano has also caught my eye, and I’ll be looking for it in the shop when it comes out to see what colour it really is.
Otherwise, the two silver animals look just as cute in the live shots, and the Club charm also looks to be a beauty. :D
Are you looking forward to this collection? Which pieces are you most coveting?
