Ethno-chic: Thomas Sabo's latest jewellery collection

SS16 Collection

Symbols from Native America and New Zealand's Maori tribe serve as inspiration for Thomas Sabo's SS16 collection

Time to once again unleash your inner flower child with Thomas Sabo's spring/summer collection. The exotic has always been an influence for the German house; this time, ethnic symbols and intricate patterns from distant cultures get weaved into boho statement accessories.

Designed for the free-spirited, the collection is expressive yet delicate. Motifs from traditional Maori tattoos and Native American symbols lend feminine intricacy to the Glam & Soul line. Dreamcatcher-inspired pieces with feathers and turquoise beads are also what you can expect from the new collection — do you hear Coachella calling? Other lines include the colourful Festival Love Bridge bracelets, minimalist Love Cuffs and Double Studs earrings.

For tough hippies, the Rebel at Heart line is an androgynous counterpart. Representing strength and resolute, bolder motifs of a bull skull or shark's tooth appear as pendants. The highlight? An ornamental combination of Maori tattoo motifs and shark tooth necklace. 

The Thomas Sabo SS16 collection will be available in 2016.
