Trendspotting at Capsule

This past weekend, the team took a field trip to Capsule, a fashion and accessories trade show that’s more like a curated collection of incredible accessory microbrands. It’s basically a trendspotter’s mecca, and a great indicator of what accessories are making a splash this season and next. There was an endless variety of designs, but we spotted some solid trends that we thought might spark some serious inspiration.

The team made sure to accessorize with 3D printed bling for this adventure – special shout-out to STONEDALONE’s Cassiopeia Ring (top left) and Noa’s Geometric Rhombus Ring (bottom).

Chokers

While chokers have been definitely having a moment (for a minute), we spotted some gorgeous, unexpected iterations of the classic style. Below are some great grown-up versions for any fans of the tattoo choker necklaces from the ‘90s (I’ve recently brought mine back out).

Snazzy rings and hand bling

We’re all about people thinking outside the box when it comes to rings (see office favorite the Cassiopeia) so we were particularly excited to spot some stunning statement pieces that are sure to make every gesture unspeakably fabulous. The accessories below deserve a hand (or two). And yes, every pun in this piece is 100% intended.

Earcuffs

There’s always going to be something exciting about earcuffs because they lend themselves to the illusion that you have more piercings than you actually do. As a girl who nearly passed out from a cartilage-piercing experience at a mall (I know, it’s so bad), really love these little jewelry hacks that let me look tougher than I am.

These trends are already well-reflected across designers’ shops on Shapeways, so we’d encourage you to snatch up the 3D printed chokers, rings, and earcuffs that will keep you ahead of the curve.
