  1. In the Bag

It is a strategy that has been used for hundreds of years and took the spotlight in 2021 in several big collections.

One designer utilized large chokers and copper earrings in organic shapes. The pieces looked like they were just excavated from some ancient city. Other designers have more modern pieces, adding small grooves and refinements.
