Spring/Summer 2013 promises to bring big & bold accessories to the spotlight…
The catwalks proved that the bigger the better for Spring/Summer 2013. It’s not all about complicated designs, if you are a little shy when it comes to splashing on the jewels don’t worry because sleek and minimal has taken over the essence of fussy and fragile. Give the small and dainty a rest this season and opt for powerful statement jewelry that takes your breath away. See how the catwalks aced the look and our favorite statement pieces from Sophiescloset.com…
BALMAIN has brought back the iconic hoop with a twist. This season the hoop falls from a button top to form a drop hoop earring. Amrita Singh Crystal Gunmetal Earrings feature the drop hoop with a free hanging tear drop crystal.
CHANEL has kept their signature peals for SS/13, this season they have emphasized their love for the organic jewel and illustrated that the bigger the better. Miriam Haskell designs classics that are always on trend, a layered pearl piece gives the same aesthetic as huge over the top pearls for those who are a little more introvert.
“Miriam Haskell would have tea with Coco Chanel while selecting the upcoming season’s beads at Madame Gripoix’s- the finest source in Paris. While Miriam would bring her young design artist, Frank Hess, Chanel was alone. They would talk. Share ideas. Trade fashion celeb secrets. They were among a new class: independent women who began their careers designing jewelry to complement high fashion clothing in an exclusive boutique.” – http://www.sophiescloset.com
