During Atlanta Apparel’s June market, over 3,200 brands will present their newest lines. Within the range, accessories are represented by over 100 exhibitors spanning handbags, jewelry, and more. Top presenting brands we’re keeping our eyes on include ABLE, Brenda Grands, Brianna Cannon, By Jenna Lee, Chansuttpearls, Freyers Eyewear, Golden Stella, Inspire Designs, Julie Vos, Linny Co, Lost and Found Jewelry, Mignonne Gavigan, Sorrelli, Teleties, The Luxury Bee, and Yochi.

A myriad of trends have also emerged this year across any manner of accessories. You can discover them here, ahead of the June market—which we’ve also included more details on below.

Shining silver

A core theme has been the emergence of silver, bringing a sleek dash of metallics to any piece. Though the cool-toned, high-shine material has never truly gone “out,” it’s faced a resurgence as young generations flock to edgy layered rings and necklaces to make stylish statements. That same sensibility is shared across brands including Sorrelli, Linny Co, Yochi, and more labels utilizing the metal in their recent necklaces, bracelets, and more.

Ornamental pendants

Overlapping with silver’s modern flash is the reemergence of exaggerated pendants. Singular drops swing from long necklaces, dangle from bracelets, and make stark statements atop rings. Inspired by ’60s and ’70s pendant baubles, pieces from brands like Julie Vos, Brianna Cannon, and Lost and Found Jewelry incorporates matte and colored stones, crystals, and accents from shells to hearts for ornamental statements.

Celestial connections

A rise in connections to celestial bodies has also unleashed a wide range of universal baubles. Stars, suns, moons, and twinkling crystal zodiac symbols adorn versatile charms and chains to ground their users to the cosmos. Cosmic pieces, like those seen by Brenda Grands, Mignonne Gavigan, Golden Stella, and more to bring fashionistas a deeper connection to their world while remaining grounded and glamorous.

Sculptural bags

Dynamic attitudes have also extended to handbags, with new iterations of crossbones, top-handles, and more crafted with a more sculptural, artistic appearance. Able’s shoulder and belt bags boast round silhouettes and knotted straps, while By Jenna Lee’s squared bags pop with colorful trim and Katie Loxton’s neutral weekenders smoothly hold shape through dome-shaped sides.
