SUMMER SPIKES… from Runways to Sophie’s Closet

SUMMER SPIKES… from Runways to Sophie’s Closet

Giselle Bunchen wearing Balmain in V Magazine (April 2011)

There is nothing wrong with letting our inner tough girl shine: a little bit of punk rock can be just as glamorous as diamonds. And Burberry, Balmain and Jean Paul Gaultier all seem to agree.

JOOMI LIM Gold Spike Ring

Burberry’s spring collection is an intriguing mix of tough and feminine. We’re thinking that Noir’s stackable rings and Joomi Lim’s spikey rings and bracelets have a similar feel.

BALMAIN S/S 2011; 
NOIR Gold Pave Cones Bangle;
CC SKYE Silver Pave Stud Ring;
NOIR Mini Pave Pyramid Silver Double Wrap

Balmain is determined to keep punk rock alive, in a very glamorous way — reminds us of something Gwen Stefani or Rhianna would wear. Instead of a plain old stud, go for sparkly pave ones like Noir and CC Skye (so ladylike at the same time).

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER Couture 2011;  
CC SKYE Pave ‘Wicked’ Ring;  
NOIR Long Drop Spike Earrings

We love the shape of this Jean Paul Gaultier purse. It kind of looks like a medieval weapon of sorts. And almost identical shape to Noir’s drop earrings and, if it was cut in half, the CC Skye ‘Wicked’ ring. Little spikey balls: it doesn’t get cuter than that!
