TREND 1 - BEAD-MANIA
Featured: DRAGON BIB CHOKER, £25
Beads remain key materials for youthful summer bangles, wristlets, chokers and earrings with folk and native-inspired beaded embroideries that will continue on for the boho festival looks we’ll all be sporting this summer!
TREND 2 – THE NEW CUFFS
The ever-faithful cuff has been given a new lease of life for SS15. Precious metals, ornate gilded motifs and natural materials like wood and bone, adorned with precious stones give the cuff an elevated feel. We also see shiny metal cuff bracelets in wider widths, mixed with enamel and indentations in both silver and gold.
TREND 3 - THE STATEMENT COLLAR
Expect to see shorter collar-length necklaces in over-the-top designs this summer! Think intricate ornamentation, twisted metals and plastic charms. Team your statement collar with neutrals for understated chic, or go all out and pair with a clashing colour.
TREND 4 - STACKING RINGS
TREND 5 – MINIMALISM
It’s been a month since Urbiana set their feet on the sands of the beautiful Cabo Roig in Spain.
We had the most spectacular venue for our first abroad photo-shoot and didn't we get some good pictures! It has long been a dream of ours to venture out into the fantastic weather that other countries will offer us and finally equipped with our amazing team, this became a reality.
With the height of summer upon us, we endeavour to show all of our lovely customers how spectacular you can look on your holidays, with our accessorises enhancing your already amazing self's. We will be releasing the new photos shortly, so don't forget to keep your eyes peeled on our website for these new inspirations.
Being out and about in the heat was definitely a challenge for our team. With constant reapplying of make-up, trying to get the best shots in the sunlight (thank god for sunglasses) and the re-application of sun cream, it was by far the hottest shoot yet.
In this blog we have included some of our behind the scenes photos, with the vast amount of restaurants and cafes the team were spoilt for choice, and our apartment was also amazing, have a look and be envious. All in all we had an absolutely fantastic time and hopefully we will be seeing more of the world for our shoots.
The festival season is upon us and all the creative juices are flowing. Festival Fashion is a big deal for us fashionistas, but when you’re not of celebrity nature you won’t have the chance to glamp and you won’t have people to heave your luggage around. We infamous people have to lug around our own bags and the last thing we need is something ridiculously heavy. A few staple items can go a long way, so make sure you’re packing sensibly and fashion forward this year with a few Urbiana tips: 1. For any festival goer, bracelets are always a staple item. When you go to a festival, you wear a band, which quickly becomes your new favourite accessory. Adding more bracelets along side this is the ultimate look. Save space with the 'Multi-coloured Beaded Statement Cuff.' This bracelet is just one piece, however it’s appearance suggests several bracelets, perfect for festival chic. RRP £18.00 2. For the true festival campers out there, we know that showering just doesn't occur. Dry shampoo and plaits can only do so much, so the best addition for these true campers is a hat. Trilby's just shout festival hair, don't let the grease get you down! 'Trilby Hat' RRP £25.00 3. This may not be the most practical of items, but we all have to have one statement piece! Festivals are a perfect time to wear some whacky clothes and accessories, so if you are going to make any piece your statement 'go to' it has to be the 'Extra Long Fringe Necklace'. This bad boy is not only perfect for bringing something new and different to the table, but fringing looks have always been part of festival fashion, especially this year as it was featured in SS14 collections everywhere. RRP £15.00 4. This staple has a two-fold purpose. When you are going mad in the crowds of people on the outskirts or in the mosh pits, you do not want to get some dangly earrings ripped out (*wince*). Opt for studs, there is a smaller chance of these falling out and/or being ripped out! Another reason why I am loving these earrings is for space savings reasons. They are gold and silver which means that you don't have to worry about matching your metals. Leave them in all weekend and you'll be set! 'Classic Silver and Gold Simple Studs' RRP £10.00 5. Most people can get away with leaving their items in their tents (preferably locked), however if you are like me you may have certain items you need to keep on you and let's face it, sometimes you don't have pockets and sometimes there is just not enough room in the small pockets you do have. For times like these, you need a small bag with a strap to put over our shoulders. Enter the 'Tibetan Inspired Purse'. This bag is the perfect size and has a chain to go over your shoulder, brilliant! Plus it’s ethnic style is a perfect festival look. 10/10. RRP from £49.99
