Following on from the earlier Autumn release back in August from X Jewellery, which featured the very autumnal khaki rubber X links, September 16th saw the addition of three new links to the collection.
Again, we saw another new colour in the rubber X links, this time a rich chocolate brown, and two new silver decorative X links …. ‘Together’ and ‘Unity’.
Brown Rubber X (£1.30 / €1.50 / $2)
Together (£50 / €58 / $99)
Unity (£37 / €42 / $46)
As appears to be the new marketing strategy by X Jewellery, they are also selling the new pieces as complete bracelets. Their website https://www.xjewellery.com/en shows a range of pre-designed complete bracelets utilising both new and older links.
I think that the brown links will prove popular, coordinating perfectly with chunky knits and boots for the fall season.
This post brings details of X Jewellery’s Autumn 2015 collection, which was launched today.
I have to say, that from when I first saw images of this collection, I was very impressed. The reason for this is first and foremost the new pieces that have been released, but secondly that the release is small. Personally, I think that this makes the brand much more attainable and collectible. Whilst I am a huge fan of the main line of Trollbeads, I have to say that I find the sizes and frequency of their releases somewhat daunting … it is hard to keep up, particularly in terms of affordability.
X Jewellery’s Autumn collection consists of two new links, a new decorative lock, a new colour of rubber X link, and a new Asian Cord option.
Here are the new additions to the collection:
Lucky Bronze (£37 / €42 / $46)
This link first appeared in silver in the ‘Bloom X Bite’ collection back in Spring 2014. Personally I think it looks even better in bronze.
Twist of Love (£37 / €42 / $46)
This new contemporary design reminds me somewhat of the soft heart from Trollbeads ‘My Sweet Stories’ start bracelet.
Flow Lock (£52 / €63 / $69)
This new lock is based on the ‘Flow’ link already in the collection and provides another decorative lock alternative. I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of the ‘Zip Me’ lock, and I didn’t feel that the ‘Heart Within’ lock was sufficiently different from the standard lock to warrant buying another. I absolutely love the look of this lock though, and wonder whether we will eventually see a bronze version of this lock as there is not currently the option of a decorative lock in bronze.
Khaki X (£1.30 / €1.50 / $2)
I really love the way that new shades of the rubber X links offer a cheap way to give a new look to existing links within your collection. I love this color for the autumn. Most of my winter wardrobe is cream, brown or black knitted jumpers and these links will look so cozy. In fact I think they would look great stacked alongside a simple Trollbeads bracelet with just the ‘Cozy’ glass bead and perhaps a couple of silvers.
Asian Cord Pink Bronze (£25 / €33 / $37)
Here we see the standard Asian Cord with new bronze fastenings instead of silver. Personally I think it is a shame they didn’t introduce a khaki cord as well. Currently it is only available in the pink cord.
Finally, here are a couple of stock / campaign images that give a better idea of how the links look together.
So, what do you make of this release? Do you wish it was bigger or do you prefer the smaller releases? As I mentioned at the start of this post, I am really impressed with this release and I am tempted by the whole collection!
