It’s that time of year again, and Pandora have started to host a few media and press previews for their Spring and Summer 2017 collections! Unfortunately very few pictures of the jewellery itself have leaked out, but we have a couple of campaign images and some very good hints at what we might be able to expect from next year’s collection.
The theme for this year’s SS17 collections appears to be all about bright colours and festivity, with bright balloons and fun campaign image adorning the press rooms!
Pandora Spring/Summer 2017 Teasers
- Our clearest image from the upcoming collections is an official SS17 campaign image, which reveals a range of brightly coloured CZ charms. The colours I can make out are blue, blush pink, red and teal/green.
- The trend for brightly coloured jewellery continues in this sneak peek of the Pandora Spring/Summer 2017 collection rings, which offer new colours of the Radiant Hearts of Pandora rings in red, teal and deep blue.
- We can also spot a new CZ double bangle bracelet in this campaign shot, which looks rather pretty! I like the look of the macaroons, too ^^
However, I have been told by a couple of sources that we can also expect the usual floral charms and jewellery for Spring 2017, too. We’ll be getting a new set of floral Petites for the Floating Necklace locket:
Pandora Disney Spring 2017 Teasers
I previously posted some info I’d had from a source regarding the Pandora Spring collections, including the Essence and Disney collections! I’ve since heard a bit more – the Winnie the Pooh characters we will be seeing next year are, in fact, Tigger and Piglet, which is what I was very badly hoping for :D I can’t wait to see what the designs are like!
The other tidbit of information I have heard is that, in addition to Donald and Daisy Duck charms, we will also be getting new Tinkerbell designs and a couple of Beauty & the Beast beads, which will tie in nicely to the new Beauty and the Beast live action film coming out next year.
Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 Teasers
I’ve also heard a few bits and pieces about the upcoming Pandora Mother’s Day 2016 collection! We will be getting another limited edition bangle; it has been described to me as having a circle clasp, much like the new two-tone Pandora Signature bracelet, that has a heart design and the Pandora signature around it. It’s apparently plain silver, and it sounds exactly like the kind of thing I would like! It would be nice to have a Mother’s Day LE bangle that isn’t so explicitly family-themed next year :D
I’m not sure that bright colours are necessarily my thing, but at the same time it’s really refreshing to see them go for a completely different aesthetic and style from their usual SS17 collections, which up until now have always been soft, pastel-themed and floral. This is a bit more punchy! And the variety of colour means that you can pick and choose which you like best, of course – you don’t have to mix and match, as they have done here.
Ideally, I would love to see more character charms – I can’t wait to see the Pandora Disney Winnie the Pooh beads, and it would be amazing to see some other animals and original ideas in the regular collections, too. I have already decided on two designs I’d like to put together next year – soft lilac/lavender purples, and one deeper, green forest-themed bracelet. I’ve been hunting down retired beads for them, but it would be great to be able to add some new beads to them too!
What would you like to see from the upcoming collections?
