While many designers take inspiration from vintage, Lulu Frost designer Lisa Salzer actually uses vintage pieces to create contemporary looks. She grew up in a family whose business is in estate jewellery so she has a very sophisticated eye when it comes to vintage. Her work is very much a collage of old and new. All the pieces stay true to their glamours past.
The tassel met the height of popularity during the jazz age of the 1920s and 30s. Many women also wore the necklaces backwards to accent their backs. Lulu Frost’s tassel necklace is a flawless mixture of antiquity and modernity.
These Art Deco earrings are very Old Hollywood. A style that began in 1920s and 30s became extremely popular again in 1950 due to its crisp lines. Chandelier earrings are one of those eternally glamourous and timeless pieces. We think Grace Kelly would agree.
While the other earrings are very Old Hollywood, these feel very 1960s bohemian. It’s problably because of the use of turquoise and antique gold — it was something that became very popular after the release of Cleopatra in the early 1960. Plus, it really complimented the free-spirited feel of that decade. We just adore these butterfly-like drop earrings — really reminds us of the iconic Vogue cover.
Of course, there is the matching bracelet too. It was worn by a vintage collector, and Sophie’s Closet favourite, Olivia Palermo.
We also love this crystal brooch bracelet. It’s such a beautiful composition of sparkles and chain. When it comes to jewellery this glamorous, it’s almost begging to be layered. That’s why we think Lulu Frost’s lookbook styling is kind of brilliant. Reminds us of glamorous socialites like the vintage style icon Millicent Rogers.
