London Fashion Week – jewellery crush
I have tons of costume jewellery, but there’s always room for another little sparkly thing I reckon. So, whilst wandering through the Designer Showrooms at London Fashion Week the other month, I had my wish list radar on full alert, as I papped all the delicious jewellery selections which were on show.
Whether you are an over the top blinged-up kinda gal, a neat romantical freak or a boho babe – there’s definitely something to catch your fancy next spring from the designers on show.
I chatted to Michela about the inspo for her stunning pieces, which are all handmade in Milan. For spring she’s been all about blending her modern artistic design ethos with classic Greek and Roman styles. You can also spot a bit of a tribal vibe going on too. These pieces are heavy duty bling – think statement piece and pair the rest of your look back.
Loved this one above, the Carmen river-pearl bib necklace.
I’ve long been a fan of Daisy Knights and her boho meets rock’n’roll jewellery. When I met her at the Designer Showrooms, she was totally charming and ready to chat through all her unique pieces which are handmade in Britain.
Although she’s designed some unique collections for the likes of Harvey Nichols, Net-a-Porter and Urban Outfitters, at London Fashion Week she was introducing her genius Lace Dimes creations, in collaboration with Vans.
These are cute little jewellery pieces which you can literally lace onto your sneakers (Vans preferrably obvs!) to make a little sparkly statement on your footwear. A bit like a grown up gals version of the eponymous Croc charms my kids used to be into, these are definitely on my Crimbo wishlist. Particularly useful if you are searching for a little something for the woman who has everything – I bet she will never have dreamed she needed these until she sees them – gorgeous gift!
The Lily Kamper pieces caught my eye with their geometric style and unusual material combos. She’s all about modern luxury, and fittingly I noticed her gorgeous pieces in Liberty London as I took a quick pit-stop during press days this week. If you like the look of her jewellery click on over to Liberty using this link and enjoy an offer of £30 off when you spend £150 with the code 30AUTUMN
I also loved Buba London for their bright geometric looks. Pronounced ‘Bubba’, the collection spans jewellery, bags and even sandals which are produced in Delhi and have a touch of the luxe boho traveller about them.
In the Designer Rock Vault, which was launched by the British Fashion Council and curated by Stephen Webster, there were plenty more innovative pieces of fine jewellery to ogle at.
How about you? Are you more of a bling-tastic babe or a neat dainty darling?
